Fanfic / Shy Girl

Go To

Shy Girl, A Worm/Mario Crossover is, as the title suggests, a crossover between Worm and Super Mario Bros., in which Taylor becomes the Boss of the Shy Guys, and becomes the bail bondswoman cape "Shy Girl".


  • All Animals Are Dogs: Taylor's pet Chomp Nippy.
  • Ambiguous Robots: In-Universe, the main theory is that Taylor/Shy Girl is a Tinker and her Guys are advanced robots.
  • The Chosen One: Apparently Taylor was the one destined to be the Boss of the Shy Guys, who've been waiting for her for years.

  • The Dreaded: Mario to the Guys, who treat him as if he's a Humanoid Abomination.
  • Hive Mind: The Guys have this. Any time they need a new type of Guy that doesn't currently exist, they can create it out of the collective knowledge they have.
  • Pinch Me: Gourmet Guy slaps Taylor to prove they're real and not a hallucination.
    The Boss? I was the Boss of these things? I held up a hand to stop an answer that I somehow knew was coming, "Just tell me one thing." They waited as I tried to form the right words, but how could I ask them to prove that they were real? That I wasn't somehow hallucinating.
    *SLAP!* I blinked and held my cheek as a Shy Guy I hadn't noticed stepped into view, a doctor's bag in it's grip, "That should be proof enough I think. We are quite certainly real Boss, and we're here to serve..."

  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Shy Guys had no particular loyalty to Bowser, merely serving him while they waited for the Boss to call.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The Shy Guys don't think twice when they hear the Call, and all of them desert Bowser.
  • Superpower Lottery: Taylor is in command of the Guys, Chomps, and Boos, with all that entails.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted with Psyche Guy, the therapist Guy Taylor creates to help with her mental issues. It is noted that she should see a non-Guy therapist at some point though.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The sheer amount of information in the Shy Guy Hive Mind did a mental whammy to Taylor, and while the Guys did a fairly good job patching her together, she's still got a few problems as a result.
  • Womanchild: Taylor has shades of this due to the mental damage caused by linking up to the Shy Guy Hive Mind.


How well does it match the trope?
