Silver Shy Guys are a variant of Shy Guy in Paper Mario: Color Splash. Silver Shy Guys, like Gold Shy Guys, are initially invincible to all attacks except for Iron Jumps, Hurlhammers, Spin Jumps, the attack of a Spike summoned via Enemy Card, or Thing cards. The former four attacks, being Iron-based, will cause their silver layer to fall off, revealing that they are actually red Shy Guys. They act like normal Shy Guys once their silver covering comes off. Silver Shy Guys appear in Fort Cobalt, and one is the first-round opponent in Roshambo Temple #8.

When Silver Shy Guys are defeated, they drop more Coins and Hammer Scraps than most enemies. They drop fewer Hammer Scraps and Coins compared to their Gold variant.
