Shy Guys are small humanoid beings wearing a red (sometimes blue) robe and a brown belt. They have purple shoes and a three-holed white mask being held up by a brown strap. In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, they skip as they walk.
Shy Guys slowly walk left and right, turning at walls. They can come in two different colors: red and blue (although in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, they only come in red). Red Shy Guys fall of ledges while blue Shy Guys turn.
In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, Shy Guys enter a stunned phase when stomped where they will stop walking and sit for a few seconds before standing back up. If the player stomps on them again, they get defeated. In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, Shy Guys simply get defeated by one stomp.
