10/88
There are many types of Shy Guys: they've been known to walk on the ground, fly through the air, traipse about on stilts, wear flowers or camouflage, throw balls, swing bats, sail on pirate ships, carry fruit, do the Bamboo Dance, ride submarines, play guitar, play tennis, wear red, come in large or small sizes, steal people's toys, cause mischief...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Shy Guy BrawlTrophy168.png NES Super Mario Bros. 2 A character in a white mask with black eyes and mouth that appears in a number of Mario and Yoshi games. Although Shy Guys' actions are varied--from flying to carrying objects--their true faces are still a mystery. If only for an instant, who wouldn't want to see an unmasked Shy Guy?

What hides behind that smooth, white mask? Shy Guys aren't about to show you, that's for sure. In Smash Run, each color of Shy Guy has different characteristics, and the red ones are the best at attacking. They've learned how to deliver a combo of angry punches if they can get close enough! These bashful baddies are so shy that no one's ever seen their real faces. Since their debut, all kinds of different Shy Guys have come out of the woodwork, and in Smash Run, each colour has its strengths. The red ones are better at attacking and hit you with punch combos. Beat them to get your hands on some Attack stat boosts.
These bashful baddies are so shy that no one's ever seen their real faces. They debuted in Doki Doki Panic before becoming a Mario series mainstay when that game was reworked into Super Mario Bros. 2. They come in different colors, each with unique characteristics. Some can walk on stilts; others are always on fire!
Blue Shy Guy BlueShyGuyTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A These guys are too shy to show you their real faces, so they hide them behind white masks. Some people claim they've seen Shy Guys walking on stilts or even running around on fire! In Smash Run, the blue Shy Guys have better defense than other Shy Guys, but that really isn't saying much... Just what IS beneath this Shy Guy's mask? Could it be...another mask?! Anyway, Shy Guys come in lots of varieties: some walk on stilts, others are always on fire! In Smash Run, these blue ones have better defence than the others. It's only slightly better, though, so don't worry. Defeat them to get yourself some Defence stat boosts.
Yellow Shy Guy YellowShyGuyTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Those white masks are just eerie, but it's possible they are better than what actually hides behind them... Anyway, some people claim to have seen tall Shy Guys with longer masks than normal. In Smash Run, yellow Shy Guys are great jumpers, so they'll drop Jump stat boosts when defeated. Did you know there are lots of different kinds of Shy Guy, including massive ones with giant masks? In Smash Run, yellow Shy Guys are slightly better at jumping than the others. Sometimes, though, they're just too busy bouncing to attack. Take them down to get Jump stat boosts.
Green Shy Guy GreenShyGuyTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Perhaps the white mask just conceals another, whiter mask beneath? There is no way to know, as these shy fellows will never take them off. In Smash Run, the green Shy Guys can run faster than other Shy Guys. You'll have to be quick to catch them, but you'll be rewarded with Speed stat boosts! Their white masks certainly make them look the same, but on the inside, Shy Guys are very different - some dream of being soldiers or dancers! In Smash Run, the green ones are fast on their feet, so they're quick to close in and hit you with a punch combo. Deal with them to get Speed stat boosts.
Shy Guy + Standard Kart StandardShyGuyTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Shy Guy makes his debut as a racer in Mario Kart 7 once you win the 150cc Shell Cup. He's a lightweight racer with superb handling. Watch out for the eight Shy Guys racing around the Rainbow Road stage—they'll happily run you over if you get in their way! Shy Guy makes his debut as a selectable character in Mario Kart 7, and all you have to do to unlock him is win the 150cc Shell Cup. He's lightweight, like Toad and Koopa, and has excellent handling. The Rainbow Road stage has eight Shy Guys whizzing around the track, so be careful not to get hit, or you'll go speeding off the stage!
