A Shy Ranger is a camouflaged Shy Guy that appears in the Pipe Vault of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. They appear only around Piranha Plants. Shy Rangers have high Speed ratings and as such, they will immediately run away from battle if encountered. However, if Mario and his party manage to defeat a Shy Ranger, the heroes will earn sixty Experience Points.

Geno with a Speed-increasing item, particularly the Feather, is the only character that can outspeed Shy Rangers before they escape. Geno can then use Geno Flash to defeat the Shy Ranger. Shy Rangers can be eaten by Yoshi with a Yoshi Cookie, providing a Kerokero Cola, although the chances of its occurring successfully is 25%.

A Shy Ranger will occasionally attack before running away. To attack, the Shy Rangers use a slingshot and fire a rock at a party member, an attack rating of one hundred. Immediately after attacking, the Shy Ranger will run away as usual. If the player afflicts Shy Rangers with a status ailment, they will stay and fight. They use, in addition to a slingshot, throwing knives and shurikens.
