For future reference, the (archived) YS site refers to these guys twice: here ("If you want to save Yoshi from scorches, / Watch out for Shy Guys bearing hot torches.") and here ("Drop down at the first pathway leading down to land on a bridge with two Shy Guys below you with two fire urns."). Hello, I'm Time Turner.
- It's a long shot, but is it possible these are just regular Shy Guys? This doesn't seem all that different from, for example, those Boo Guys in Yoshi's Island that operate maces and drop bombs. Niiue (talk) 21:33, 20 December 2015 (EST)

In page 127 of the Nintendo Power guide, the heading "The Barbecue Boys" is used for Burner Heihō, but the following paragraph still refers to them as Shy Guys. Could "Barbecue Boy" be taken as their specific name and Shy Guy refer to their broader species? LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:53, 5 November 2018 (EST)
- I'd be willing to bet that this is just a title for them. We could rename this article to "Shy Guy (barbecue)," but I personally wouldn't go with that. Scrooge200 (talk) 15:52, January 27, 2020 (EST)
- How many times in the guide are headers like this used? Seems a possible callback to the Baseball Boys...itself simply a stage title referring to two enemies. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:12, January 27, 2020 (EST)
