|Super Mario RPG enemy|
|"Ooh! This'll be fun!"|
The Shyper is the strongest variety of Shymore and only appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Like their Shymore cousins, Shypers are Shy Guys that ride sword-tipped pogo-sticks. Shypers are one of the strongest enemies in the game, and only appear during the final battle with Smithy. They look identical to Machine Made Bodyguards.
During the battle between Mario and Smithy, Smelter will produce hot liquid metal from its mouth, which Smithy then shapes with his sledgehammer into Shypers. As such, Smithy has an infinite supply of Shypers at his disposal.
Not only can Shypers attack Mario with their sword-tipped pogo-sticks, they also possess one of the strongest magical attacks in the game, Sword Rain, which does significant damage to all of Mario's party.
