Fawful Guys are Shy Guys that wear orange robes and a Fawful face mask. They are found in the events of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story; they also have a dark version. They will instantly be defeated by Bowser if he runs into them in the overworld, dropping coins, but Mario and Luigi have to fight them.
They attack in strange ways. One of their attacks involves getting eaten by an offscreen creature that has the tongue of a Yoshi and a roar similar to Yoob, a massive Yoshi monster from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (in the remake, there is no roar). The creature encases them in an green-and-yellow Yoshi Egg (making reference to both Yoob and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island) and launches them at the bros. Right before the Fawful Guy is launched, a target will appear showing who they will attack. If the brothers jump on the egg, they can cause significant damage to the Fawful Guy. They will also leap towards the brothers and attempt to headbutt them (jumping à la Woozy Guys), which they have to counter with their hammers. They will occasionally be equipped with a folded umbrella that they release at the climax of their jump to disrupt the bros.'s timing with their hammers, requiring them to wait a split second longer before counterattacking.
Fawful Guys return in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, where they additionally are found as enemies in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode. The description states they were Orange Shy Guys that willingly defected to Fawful's side.
