Many mistakenly believe that a characteristic of noble gases is that they have to have 8 electrons. This is, of course, not true. Noble gases simply must have a full outer shell. The first shell should only have two electrons (which is what helium has). Other noble gases include such substances as neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon
