Big Shy Guys[1], also known as Giant Shy Guys[2] or Large Shy Guys[3], are Shy Guys that appear in Super Mario Advance. They act much like normal Shy Guys, except that they provide a Heart when they are thrown at the ground or defeated. They take a few more seconds to be picked up due to their heavy size. One also appears in the WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase microgame Mario Adv.

A Big Shy Guy in Super Mario-Kun

In the small short that concludes the chapter in volume 26 of Super Mario-Kun, a Big Shy Guy attacks Mario, Goombario, and Kooper. It then pits Mario against Robirdo. Mario, however, grabs the Big Shy Guy and throws it against Robirdo, defeating both.
