Shy Guys are creatures that inhabit the Mushroom Kingdom. In Shy Guy Showdown, there's a town inhabited by them that's ruled by a White Shy Guy named "Awesome Guy". They are also obsessed with toast.

Physical appearance

Most Shy Guys appear wearing red (or as any color) with a hood, along with a white mask with a "O.O" facial expression held on by a brown strap holding the mask. They have brown belts, small blue feet, and flappy flipper-like arms. In the show, the ones that have names almost always ended in "guy".

He is the Leader of Shy Guy town, he owns a giant tank called the "Destroyer 4000". His only main role was in Shy Guy Showdown.

His robe is white with no belt, has a gold medal that has a red ribbon, wears a tall general's hat that white with a red brim and has a gold emblem on his hat and on each of his shoulders.

He is depicted as being somewhat serious, but also really whiny and impatient.

He created an army to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, planning to steal their ladies, the money, and their yummy food. After Mario tries to stop him, he mistakes Mario for one of his troops (Due to Mario getting his face white), thinks he's drunk and sends "Super League of Gay Guys" an attack team to take out Mario.

He ends up getting his army out the gates and into town, but when he got to the center of town, he is ignored by everyone, (including his own troops who go shopping) and his tank gets mistaken as toy car by a police officer and gets taken back to his home town.
