He has appeared in the majority of Mario games in the main series.

Shy Guy first appeared in Mario Tennis as an unlockable character. He appeared once again as an starting character in Mario Power Tennis. Although he was not playable in Mario Kart Double Dash!!, Shy Guys skate around Sherbert Land. In Mario Kart DS, in download play, all characters other then the host must play as Shy Guy.

Shy Guy would return in Mario Kart 7 as a playable character. Unlike his appearance in Mario Kart DS, he can be used without the use of the download play, though he can be used in download play also. He can be unlocked through the Grand Prix mode. Shy Guy would have his own track called Shy Guy Bazaar. Shy Guy is a feather-weight racer and its acceleration and off-road are its best stats.

Shy Guy is set to make a return in the upcoming Nintendo Wii U title, Mario Kart 8. The regular Shy Guys will also make an appearance in the game as well. The game will also feature a new course called Shy Guy Falls, that will appear as the final course for the Flower Cup. Shy Guys have a business that is called Shy Guy Metals, which has been going "since 1987"(which is their first appearance in the Mario series).
