The lights are on
Let's face it...Yoshi was never too intimidating to the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom. Sure, you want to step out of his way if he's coming through after eating a yellow or red shell, but on the whole he's pretty tame. And Shy Guy? That dude is harmless. They can't even take a stupid turnip to the face, even if they have one of those cool masks that shoots metal balls.
Apparently deviantART user ~7734-01 thought the two deserved to look a little more formidable, and the above art is the result. Just look at how much sweeter Shy Guy is...he looks like god**** Boba Fett.

That is fing amazing. Shy guy the ninja and Yoshi the velociraptor. Hells to the yea!
That Shy Guy looks bad***.
If only they made a Mario game with Yoshi looking like this. Now that would be freaking awesome!
My backpack's got jets.
this kind of goes beyond awesome to... my god! there's no word for this level of coolness! good gravy!! :)
Wish I was a good artist
If they ever made a really mature-themed Mario RPG (which probably will never happen), this is what it should look like. Two thumbs up!
It looks like it would hurt Mario to ride one of those Yoshi. What with the armor-scales and new found ferocity.
Haha he's still getting owned by Yoshi though. Great artwork though, I love it.
That is awesome.
I need a gritty Mario game stat!
The direction mario games need to take.
this looks like a future title if nintendo actually does something different anytime soon instead of repeating no story washed up character games.
That's pretty darn awesome.
By seeing this, I now think Shy Guy is more awesome.
get Turok hes good at this.
That is really awesome! I like how ShyGuy lost his shoe, and how Yoshi has an armored backing designed like that. I think that Mario is definitely in need for an upgrade like what happened with Zelda.
If Nintendo made a game with this art style I would go buy a wii.
He looks like Deadpool with a a jetpack.
