Zeus Guys[1] are relatives of Bandits that appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, as well as Yoshi's New Island. Their name comes from Zeus, the Greek god known for throwing thunderbolts.

Zeus Guys are usually found in groups of two, and fire balls of energy at Yoshi. If Yoshi gets too close, within the maximum range of their balls of energy, they will kick or punch him. Yoshi cannot swallow them, and jumping on them or throwing an egg at them stuns them temporarily. Yoshi can only defeat Zeus Guys with a blue watermelon, Anywhere POW, or by spitting fire.
