Spear Guys are Shy Guys with spears. They are the only type of Shy Guys in Paper Mario that are seen outside of Shy Guy's Toy Box. They indicate with their spears which command the player should not use against them. Spear Guys may hold their weapon facing up or towards the player, meaning they must frequently change their battle strategies. However, if the player has the Spike Shield Badge equipped, they can perform the jump command on Spear Guys at any time. Spear Guys can also attack by throwing their spears at the player. If they do so, they will afterwards reveal their true identity by becoming a regular Shy Guy. They can also call for reinforcements when needed. They reappear in Paper Mario: Sticker Star as enemies in Worlds 5-1 through 5-4, in Shy Guy Jungle.


  • Spear Guys (along with Shy Guys and Fly Guys) can be found in Super Paper Mario's coding, meaning they were going to appear as some sort of enemies encountered in the game, but were removed for unknown reasons.
  • Their spear is really powerful and annoying, so you should take them out quickly.
  • They do not live in Shy Guy's Toy Box because they are native islanders and don't like anywhere else.
