General Guy is one of the bosses in Paper Mario. He was really just a regular Shy Guy until King Bowser Koopa gave him one of the Star Spirits to gaurd. He resides in Shy Guys' Toy Box, along with the rest of the Shy Guy community. He wanted all the rest of the Shy Guys to follow his orders, but never was able to get them to listen. When Bowser used the Star Rod on General Guy, he became a General among the Shy Guy's and commands them to stop Mario and his friends from rescuing Muskular, the fourth Star Spirit.
