Pirate Guys[1][2] are seafaring Shy Guys that appear in Yoshi's Island DS. They are like normal Shy Guys, except they are all white with purple shoes, wear differently colored bandanas, and appear in beach-themed stages. They can be found in the level The Goonie Coast Isn't Clear!, along with Pirate Guys who stack themselves on top of each other.
