About Shy Guy
Shy Guys are the little guys running around on the Super Mario Bros. video games with red hooded capes that try to stop Mario from accomplishing his goals! The Shy Guys started out as minor Nintendo characters, and soon became enemies of the popular Italian plumbers. The Shy Guys can even be spotted on go-karts as a playable character in the Nintendo video game, Mario Kart.
Shy Guys first appeared as minions to the enemies throughout the Super Mario Bros. games. Soon they grew into their own masters and attempted to defeat Mario every chance they got. Despite their bad wrap, they aren’t always bad because you can catch the Shy Guys on a team with Yoshi like in the game Mario Super Sluggers. Shy Guys never show their face due to their shyness, keeping them a mystery as to what they look like under their masks. Luigi is the only person who knows what they look like.
