Snow Guy
First appearance Yoshi's Story (1997)
Latest appearance Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World (2017)
Variant of Shy Guy

Snow Guys, also known just as Shy Guys,[1] are mountain-dwelling Shy Guys that inhabit P. 3-Summit in Yoshi's Story, particularly the levels Poochy & Nippy and Frustration. Their role is to fire snowballs at the Baby Yoshis from the background of the level, where they cannot be defeated. They come in red, yellow, green, and blue.

Snow Guys also appear in Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, and they similarly throw snowballs at Yoshi; however, they appear in the foreground and can be defeated much like a normal Shy Guy. They appear only in A Little Light Snowfall. Instead of wearing white earmuffs and gloves, they wear a parka similar to that of an Ice Snifit.
