Maraca Guys (known as Maracas Guys in PAL regions) are a type of Shy Guy that appears in the game Paper Mario: Sticker Star. A single Maraca Guy is only found in the Yoshi Sphinx level and is accompanied by a Sombrero Guy and an Accordion Guy. Maraca Guys can play their namesake instrument to eliminate status conditions. For example, if one of their allies is crumpled, Maraca Guys can restore them to normal. They can also throw their sombrero at Mario to inflict damage. It can, however, run away if it is battled alone.
