Metal Guy

A Metal Guy

Metal Guys[1] are a giant species of Shy Guys that appear in Yoshi's New Island.

Metal Guys spawn via giant metal pipes and 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.
