BACKGROUND: Shy Rangers were Shy Guys hired by Smithy to gain intel on Mario and his friends. Smithy stationed them within the Pipe Vault, as he knew that Mario was on good terms with Yoshis and would likely give Yo'ster Isle a visit. They normally run away at the first sign of danger, in order to avoid falling in battle and losing valuable information.

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
HP: 300
Offence: 100
Defence: 80
Speed: Very high.

Attack Pattern: Runs away, normally before any character has a chance to do anything. It will occasionally attack just as a Shy Guy would, but it will still run away immediately afterward.
Basic Strategies: The hardest part about facing a Shy Ranger is simply hitting him before he immediately runs away. The best way to face him is to equip Geno with the Feather. That will give Geno enough speed to get an attack in. However, his normal attack will probably not be enough to finish it, so use one of his strong magic attacks.
Advanced Strategies: A Sleepy Bomb may be able to put the Shy Ranger to sleep, which will prevent an escape.
The Shy Ranger attacks just like a normal Shy Guy. Press A just as the rock is about to connect.
