Shy Guy Shuffle is a Free-for-All minigame appearing in Mario Party 10.


The Shy Guys (as the name implies) shuffle around, forcing players to pay attention to their positions, and then the player has to choose the one with the most donuts on his head in order to get the most points. The number of donuts the player chooses is worth the same number of points as the value of the donuts ranging from one to five. In the third round, the Shy Guys line up in front of the screen and then jump from side to side to shuffle themselves, making it more difficult to keep track of them. After the third round, the character with the highest score wins the minigame.


After the third round is over, a scene of the characters happily eating the donuts together is shown before it cuts to the results screen. Each character has their own animation:

  • Mario takes a bite out of one donut and then takes a bite out of another.
  • Luigi takes a bite out of a donut and lifts it into the air.
  • Wario keeps taking bites out of his two donuts from left to right.
  • Waluigi keeps taking bites out of his two donuts from left to right and then sits contently.
  • Peach takes a bite out of her donut and then thinks.
  • Toad takes a bite out of the donut, starts jumping around, and then continues to nibble the donut.
  • Daisy takes a bite out of her donut, smiles, and rocks from side to side.
  • Rosalina takes a bite out of her donut and then giggles.
  • Yoshi takes a bite out of the donut and then realizes how good it tastes.
  • Donkey Kong drops a donut into his mouth, eats it, and repeats for another donut.
  • Toadette bounces excitedly, then takes a bite out of the donut and goes back to bouncing.
  • Spike drops a donut into his mouth and eats it.
