Variant of Shy Guy

Snowboarding Shy Guys (also known as Shy Guy Snowboarders)[1] are a type of Shy Guy appearing on DK Summit in Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart Tour, and the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. They snowboard across the half-pipe area of the course while performing tricks. If a racer runs into one of them, they spin out and slow down. They can be taken out by attacking them with an offensive item or by touching them while invincible.

In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Snowboarding Shy Guys can also be seen on the course Mount Wario, where they appear in the background of the slalom and mogul portions in the final section. In addition, a stamp of a Snowboarding Shy Guy can be obtained in the former game by winning a Time Trial race against the staff ghost for Mount Wario.
