First appearance Yoshi's Crafted World (2019)
Variant of Shy Guy

Knife Guys[1] are Shy Guys that appear as enemies in Yoshi's Crafted World. They are present in the levels Deceptive Doors and The Shogun's Castle.

Most Knife Guys are encountered normally on Yoshi's path, but some appear from behind shōji-like doors. They carry knife-like blades, which they point in front of them while running. When they bump into a wall or another Knife Guy, or simply encounter a platform's edge, they stop for a short time before turning the other way and continuing to scurry. Yoshi receives damage if he gets run into by a Knife Guy, although he can defeat the enemies by using any attack method.
