Turtles are an uncommon creature in the Ecco Series. They are passive and do not attack. When tackled by Ecco they will retreat into their shell and can be moved with his nose in Ecco the Dolphin and Ecco: The Tides of Time. This allows Ecco to use them to block strong upward currents of water and pass through.
In Ecco: Defender of the Future a young Dolphin "owns" a pet turtle that Ecco must rescue from sharks. By using the Song of Turtle Ecco can make a turtle follow him. By charging it the turtle will hide in its shell and fall. This can reveal Stingrays which at one point reveals the Song of Stealth.
