Shy Guy Tower
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Paper Mario series
Shy Stacks debut in Paper Mario, where two of them are fought immediately before the boss battle with General Guy, after the Shy Squad and Stilt Guys. A Shy Stack consist of four Shy Guys standing on top of each other and has a cumulative attack power that equals the number of Shy Guys in the stack. The Spin Smash Badge or Kooper can be used to knock off the stack one by one, decreasing the attack power. They use slingshots to attack, like Sky Guys and Spy Guys in the same game, as well as regular Shy Guys in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
Paper Mario: Color Splash
While not an enemy that can be fought in Paper Mario: Color Splash, three Shy Guys stack themselves in the Redpepper Crater, peeping on a Boo in the waterfall. If Mario hits them with his Hammer, they complain it took them three hours to stack themselves to get a view, and if they are hit again, they fall down and do not get back up again, while telling Mario to find his own spot. When Mario talks to the Boo, the Shy Guy Tower falls down, since the Boo thinks they are looking at it.
Yoshi's Island DS
Yoshi's Woolly World / Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World
Shy Guy Towers return under their new name in Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. Unlike in Yoshi's Island DS, the tower cannot be disbanded by removing a single Shy Guy from the formation; however, this is not the case when Yoshi steers through them as Moto Yoshi. When one of them is eaten or attacked with a yarn ball, any other Shy Guys that were staying on top of it drop a level lower. They can also be stomped on one by one, or Ground Pounded from the top to instantly defeat all of them. Often, the Shy Guy at the top of the tower holds a Bead or a Bomb.
Yoshi's Crafted World
Shy Guy Towers reappear in Yoshi's Crafted World, behaving exactly the same as in past games.
Mario Sports Superstars
Shy Guy Towers later reappear in Mario Sports Superstars in the "Road to Superstar" mode as enemies, though only two Shy Guys stand on top of each other. They can be defeated by the sports balls that the amiibo cards yield.
Mario Tennis Aces
Shy Guy Towers reappear in the Shy Guy Train Tussle co-op challenge of Mario Tennis Aces. They appear in stacks of their respective colors and can be hit for coins. During Frenzy Mode, three or four very tall stacks of Shy Guys appear in front of the players, with crates between them containing coins and power-ups. At the top of each stack there is one crate containing a key of a specific color that will open the corresponding chest present in the stage, giving the players coins. To get a crate closer to the ground, the player has to defeat as many Shy Guys in the respective stack as possible before Frenzy Mode finishes.
