Groove Guys are enemies featured in Paper Mario.

These little tricksters are located only in Shy Guy's Toy Box. Groove Guys are also one of the most annoying Shy Guys in the game, too. Sometimes, these guys might just bump into Mario like a regular Shy Guy, but other times they might try to use their signature attack. When they use this attack, they walk up to Mario and spin around. Mario can defend, but it can be difficult to find the right time to do so. If Mario is hit by this attack, he will most likely have succumbed to dizziness. These guys can also call in reinforcements so they can easily swarm too.

Tattle This is a Groove Guy. Groove Guys wear weird clothes. They're probably stage clothes. Pssh... You know performers... Max HP: 7, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0 They shake their booties to call in reinforcements. They also spin around in front of you and make you feel dizzy. These rock 'n' rollers are a drag, so let's ditch 'em as fast as we can.
