Shy Guys are timid troublemakers and common enemies in the Mario and Yoshi series. They are famous for their masks, which they wear due to their shyness. They made their first appearance in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, a non-Mario game; they were later carried over to the Mario universe when Super Mario Bros. 2 was created. Shy Guys usually work for Bowser and the Koopa Troop, but they originally worked for the evil Wart.
Shy Guys can be any of the six classes, with their main color matching that of their class' icon.
