Captain Shy Guy is an alien-like Shy Guy in Mario Party 8. He is apparently responsible for the Lucky Space in Bowser's Warped Orbit. When the player lands on it, he makes use of the landing pad nearby and asks the player to hop in his spacecraft. They then reach Shy Guy's Space Buffet, which has four Blue Spaces topped with three coins and a Candy Area between each one. This area does not lead to a free Star, but it leads the player to collect three free pieces of Candy instead. The Candy always turns out to be either Bullet Candy and Bowser Candy. When the player reaches the end, Captain Shy Guy returns the player to the Lucky Space to finish their turn.

If the player achieves at least 9,800 points in Test for the Best, multiple alien Shy Guys resembling Captain Shy Guy greet them on the moon. If the player achieves a perfect 10,000 points, two more can be seen holding a sign showing their point total of 10,000.

Captain Shy Guy also makes an appearance in one of the Carnival Figures that can be purchased from the Carnival Wagon in the Fun Bazaar, the Warped Space Shuttle.

In Yoshi's Crafted World, the Rush Heyho in the Outer Orbit levels, as well as the Shy Guys on the golden stars thrown by Mega Baby Bowser during the final battle, bear a resemblance to Captain Shy Guy.
