Variant of Mega Guy

Metal Guys[1] are metallic Mega Guys that appear in Yoshi's New Island.

Metal Guys spawn via giant metal pipes. Yoshi can swallow Metal Guys by rapidly pressing the A Button button to turn them into Metal Eggdozers, which can be used to destroy otherwise indestructible obstacles underwater. They appear in Koopa Canyon, Rise of the Nasty Nep-Enuts, Slime Drop Drama, Lose the Lunge Fish, and Make Way for King Bowser!
