Chandeli-ho, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Chandeli-hos are a type of Shy Guy in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. After the Smithy Gang's takeover in Bowser's Keep, the Chandeli-hos replace Kinklinks as holders of the big chandeliers in the keep.

They are seen in the battle against Boomer. After Mario defeats Boomer, Boomer cuts off his Chandeli-ho's connection to the chandelier, and falls down with it. The Chandeli-ho holding the chandelier with Mario and his party on it then takes them up to the highest tower of the keep to battle Exor.

If the game is hacked to give a party member a speed above 200 in the battle with Boomer, it is possible to target Chandeli-ho (who may have once been a planned enemy). In the English version, it is referred to as the more Western "Hangin' Shy", while in the Japanese version, the name is blanked. Its Psychopath thought is "Minimum wage for THIS?!" in the English version, which is shared with Booster's Snifits, while it has a unique line in the Japanese version.
