“Paint and suffering...”
The Shunned Guy is a Slurp Guy first found in the Indigo Underground in Paper Mario: Color Splash. It can be located in a small cave branching off from a platforming room next to an upward-moving block. It is seen sucking the color out of a Toad. When Mario approaches it, it suddenly bends backward unnaturally and spots Mario before moving towards him similar to a 2-Fold Goomba or a bug, initiating the battle. Mario tries to escape, but he's unable to. Attacking the Shunned Guy with Jumps or Hammer doesn't damage it, but it can be defeated with fire-based attacks, outright stated from one of its in-battle quotes.
Another Shunned Guy appears in the kitchen of Tangerino Grill during the commotion caused by Shy Guys, in the shelves next to the sink. Yet another appears in the Sunset Express scaring one of the Red Rescue Squad members. In both appearances, a Shunned Guy can be defeated outside of battle with First Strike attacks, but still retain their invulnerability to Jump and Hammer attacks in battle.
