Talk:White Shy Guy

From the Super Mario Wiki

I always thought the White Shy Guy was acharacter. One only appears at a time. - User: Ultimatetoad

I think your right, only one White Shy Guy is seen at a time, maybe it is an actual character. -- Sir Grodus

"ahem" besides that, when they/it does appear, it looks exactly the same (unlike Birdo) - User: Ultimatetoad

Uhh Koopas all seem the same. Goombas too. And they're species...more than one appear. MayorPenguinPM.pngPaper Jorge

BUT no White Shy Guys appear at the same time. Plenty of different Goombas and Koopas appear at the same time. - User: Ultimatetoad

I sort of think that he's/they're an individual character, too. The manual says "You have not seen too much of him before" and persistently calls him a "he" rather than a "them". --YellowYoshi398 19:55, 6 February 2007 (EST)

In Mario &Sonic in the olypic winter games The White Shy Guy in Frosttown can give you a ticket to continue.

A white shy guy can revive Black and White Yoshi. You have to finish the game with white or black Yoshi for a white shy guy to revive them. But you have to do it before you finish the game with them or you will have to find them again.

That seems strange for the manual of the game call the White Shy Guy a "he". That probably happens with the Mario enemies on the instruction booklet of Super Mario Bros.. Besides the Cheep-Cheep is called a "she". YS WhiteShyGuy.pngIceShadow talk · edits) 13:09, 11 July 2012 (EDT) 23:05, 10 July 2012 (EDT)

This page should cover a specific ally character, not a whole species. (see above) --ShyGuy12345 (talk) 02:38, 27 November 2018 (EST)

This page currently covers all instances off white-colored Shies in the franchise, which is inconsistent with how we do the rest (except Black, which also needs cleaning up). I think that most items on here are generic enough (and pretty much equal with other colors in their respective games) to be merged to Shy Guy, just leaving behind the ally Shy Guy in Yoshi's Story. Any objections? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:43, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Sounds good to me. Niiue - Who has lost his tail? 01:47, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Sounds like a good ccompromise, even though they are intended to be the same iteration. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 13:04, April 22, 2019 (EDT)
What do you mean by that? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:09, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Remove non-Yoshi's Story information[edit]

See above. In Yoshi's Story, this is a distinct ally entity. In the rest, it's treated equally to any other color of Shy Guy (or even worse, just be a variant that happens to wear white).

Oh boy, do we need a "Shy Guy (species)" page? We have every other color of Yoshi pointed to Yoshi (species), even if some are distinct characters. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:15, February 12, 2020 (EST)

The main Shy Guy article is already the species article though. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:00, February 16, 2020 (EST)
