Shy Guy Squad
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Shy Guy Squad is a Special Attack used by Bowser in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. This attack costs eight SP in both versions of the game, and can be used after Bowser frees the Shy Guys found on Bowser Path. This move is a fast single target attack and is an easy way to inflict quite a lot of damage at once.
When initiated, Bowser will have a spherical pile of Shy Guys in his hand. After tossing the pile off-screen, a group of three Shy Guys will appear on both sides of Bowser, with a rope. Bowser will then curl up into a spike ball and the six of twelve Shy Guys will then roll and push Bowser into the rope. The player will have to continually slide the stylus to the left to build power. The farther Bowser is rolled, the more damage he will cause. Then, Bowser will be fired like a slingshot and hit the enemy at high speeds.
Bowser uses this move against Mario and Luigi during their second battle in Toadley Clinic. Bowser X uses it as well. They must use their hammers to counterattack, hitting Bowser back at the Shy Guys enough times so the attack will end without them taking damage. In both cases, he will not use this attack if Bowser did not free the Shy Guys back at Bowser Path.
