Shy Guys are mischievous, masked creatures that appear in the Mario and Yoshi series. They are very childish and are super tricksters. They wear different colored robes and a white mask with three black holes for the eyes and mouth, and only Luigi has seen a Shy Guy without its mask (in canon), making them some of the most mysterious enemies in the series. Their most prominent members are the Shy Guy Bros.


The Shy Guys were created by Wart, a powerful king of frogs who commanded them to travel over the lands. When Wart/Mamu was defeated by Mario, the Shy Guys joined the Koopa Troop.
