Mega Guys[1], also known as Mega Shy Guys[2], are Shy Guys that are larger than normal, exclusive to Yoshi's New Island. They tend to spawn from large pipes, and unlike the game's regular-sized Shy Guys, they are impervious to stomps and constantly walk forward, only turning around once they reach a wall. Yoshi can swallow them to turn them into Mega Eggdozers, which can be used to destroy otherwise indestructible obstacles. Mega Guys require a bit more effort than normal to swallow, as the player has to rapidly press A Button to do it. A metallic variant known as Metal Guys also appear, which are used to make Metal Eggdozers.
