Shy Guys are common "Mario" enemies who first appeared in "Super Mario Bros. 2"; they have later gone on to be recurring characters in the "Mario" sports titles and others.In the 19 August, 2010 update, a drawing of Mario was added to the menu. The drawing showed Mario in a trenchcoat and sunglasses carrying a boom-box over his head. The boom-box also has a POW Block in the center, the POW Block resembling its in-game sprite from "Super Mario Bros. 2".
