Gourmet Guy is a fat Shy Guy who works for Bowser and will only help you if you give him a cake in Paper Mario. Because of his appearance, it is expected that Gourmet Guy is a member of the Fat Guy species which was introduced in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.One thing notable about Gourmet Guy is his reaction to a good cake. It only comes twice in the game. First, Gourmet Guy will go, "Ooohhhhh! oooohhhhhh! OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH!" Then the screen will spin as he says, "This is lip-smackingly delicious!" Next, he gets really hyper and dashes around the screen. At the end of the game, during the parade, when the Fearsome 5 eat part of Huff N. Puff, Gourmet Guy realizes he and the Ruff Puffs are edible, and chases after them in a hunger frenzy.
