Fryguy's artwork from Super Mario Bros. 2.
|First appearance||Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic|
|Created by||Fuji TV|
Fryguy is essentially a giant living fireball that spews smaller fireballs when it is angry. Fryguy only appears once in Super Mario Bros. 2 at World 4-3 which, ironically consists of ice, snow and cold seas. According to the Super Mario Bros. 2 game manual, "Wart gave life to this entity which is created from fire. He spits fireballs when he is mad."
Fryguy, along with Mouser, Tryclyde, and Clawgrip (exclusive to Super Mario Bros. 2), is one of the boss characters that appear at the end of each world in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario Bros. 2. Fryguy lives inside a very tall castle-type fortress, waiting for the arrival of the player. Fryguy cannot be touched safely and must be hit three times with a mushroom block. After successfully hit by the mushroom blocks three time, he splits into several miniature versions of himself, all which has to be defeated by the player in order for Fryguy himself to be defeated.
Fryguy also appears on the enhanced Super Mario Bros. 2 game in Super Mario All-Stars. The background of the room in which he is fought looks different, and his sprite is also somewhat modified. Naturally, he is also encountered in the individual port, Super Mario Advance. In it, when his chamber is entered, Fryguy is created when bubbles rise up to a mask. He also has a new quote where he says, "I'm too hot to touch!"
Fryguy was also a semi-regular on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, where he worked for Bowser. He also appeared occasionally in the Nintendo Comics System Mario comic stories, which revealed that there was more than one of him. According to the comics, Fryguys are made by exposing Toads to fire or lava. In one episode, "Duh Stoopid Bomb," one of Bowser's inventions makes a Snifit a genius. The Snifit takes over the fortress and drops Bowser into the Fryguy kindergarten. Additionally, in the Super Mario Bros. movie, the fire spitting weaponry used by King Koopa's troops are referred to as "FRY GUY flamethrowers".
Also, in Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Fry Guys (or a very similar lookalike) appear on the Bowser Castle court randomly. They fry the characters and make them run around almost uncontrollably, dropping the ball if they have it. Additionally, one of the Sammer Guys fought in Super Paper Mario is named Guy Who Fry.
