Variant of Shy Guy

Woozy Guys are Shy Guy variants that perform forward flips in the air instead of walking. Woozy Guys appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi's Island DS, Yoshi's New Island, Yoshi's Woolly World, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, and Yoshi's Crafted World. They appear in the Island Museum in Yoshi's Island DS. In Yoshi's Woolly World, unlike in previous appearances, all Woozy Guys in this game are purple, to help distinguish between them and Shy Guys. In Yoshi's Crafted World, they go back to sharing the same colors as Shy Guys, except in Hoop-Jump Hop, where Shy Guys wear circus attire, and Outer Orbit, where Shy Guys wear space attire and are affected by low gravity.
