A photo of this character.

Big Guy the Stilted is an enemy in the video game Yoshi's Island DS. It is a giant robot Shy Guy that you must attack by shooting eggs while it's in the air. Once you push it into the lava, you must ground pound it's head to harm it. During the battle, many Shy Guys will come out of its eyes and attack you. After roughly three groundpounds, he will explode like a piñata and many Shy Guys will fall out.


  • This is the only boss in Yoshi's Island DS that Kamek doesn't enlarge with magic.
  • This is the only boss you can fight with Baby Bowser (excluding Bowser) meaning he is the only boss you don't need to use eggs to beat.
  • He was planned to be a real Shy Guy rather than a robot.
