Shy Guys are enemies in Paper Mario: Color Splash and appear throughout the game, including in the warp zone, where they're often stunned by Mario's Paper Mario Plushie. Throughout the game, a number of different card captures and enemies appear as normal-looking Shy Guys that have been made to look like the various protagonists. These are Shyanne, Knuckles Jr., Mario, Luigi, Toad and of course Yoshi, Giovanni, and the various Marios and Marias as well. Shy Guys that are not made to look like the protagonists may not be as effective at beating the protagonists' escape routes out of levels.
Shy Guys are enemies in both Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and Mario + Rabbids: Stars for Hope. In the former, they can be used by the four character classes of Mario and the Rabbids to unlock stars. In the latter, they are the primary opponents while clearing the game's stages. They can be defeated by bumping and beating them. Once they're defeated they turn into coins.
