Spear Guy, sometimes also known as Jungle Guys, Tribal Guys and Jade Guys, is a type of tribal Shy Guy who wear grass skirts, wield a shield and spear, and have painted marks on their masks. Spear Guys debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and appeared in other Mario games after their introduction, mostly in RPGs and Mario Party games. They are commonly found in jungle and forest areas of various Mario titles.

Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest

Spear Guys appear in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest, found in Plumdrop Rainforest and battled alongside Poison Bloopers, Scuttlebugs, Snifits, and Fuzzies. They act similar to the Chuck Guys from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the Coconutter from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time and the Paper Shy Guys from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam in battle. They can attack by swinging over to Mario or Luigi (or both of them when two are active in battle), throwing their spears at a bro, charging at them with their spears, or waving their spears above them (turning them into a Spiny enemy).
