Parent Species Shy Guy

Shy Guy Towers (known as Shy Stacks in Paper Mario) are the third part of the Shy Guy Army in Paper Mario. They consist of four Shy Guys standing on top of each other. The Spin Smash Badge or Kooper can be used to knock them off. They use slingshots to attack, like regular Shy Guys in Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars.

They also appear in Yoshi's Island DS, along with Pirate Stacks. If a Yoshi licks one of the Shy Guys in the stack, they will fall down and become regular Shy Guys.

Shy Guy Towers return under their new name in Yoshi's Woolly World. Unlike their previous appearances, the tower can't be toppled by removing a Shy Guy from the formation (However this isn't the case when Yoshi is transformed into Moto Yoshi). Often, the Shy Guy at the top of the tower holds a Bead or a Bomb.

Tattle This is a Shy Stack. Whoa, this pile has an incredible sense of balance! Look at that stack! Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0 Its attack power equals the number of Guys in the stack. It will be 4 if there are four Shy Guys stacked up. If you have the Spin Hammer ability, you can knock 'em off one by one. Obviously, their attack power decreases when there are fewer of 'em in the stack.
