Shyren, after humming once

Shyren (/ˈʃaɪrən/) is an enemy that appears in Waterfall.

Profile

Appearance

Shyren is a fish-like monster, ashamed of her scary face and poor singing abilities. She fights with her back turned to the protagonist. Her "body" is a separate entity from her while her "head" is her entire body.

Personality

She is insecure, and ashamed of herself, and her song. The protagonist may help her feel more comfortable singing. Shyren is implied to enjoy performing in general, as Undyne had once taught her piano lessons.[1]

Main Story

Shyren had originally relied on her sister speaking in her stead until her sister went missing. She shortly after became a recluse. Shyren was previously friends with Mettaton and Napstablook, and liked the notion of performing with them.[2]

True Pacifist Route

In the Epilogue, Shyren is reunited with her missing sister, who turned into an Amalgamate. In the ending credits sequence, she joins Mettaton, Napstablook and Burgerpants on tour as Mettaton's back-up singer.

Trivia

  • Shyren's name is a combination of shy and siren.
  • Shyren is always encountered, even if the kill counter in the area is depleted.
  • Shyren is only the small fish atop the apparent body, which in turn is her talent agent.
  • Shyren sometimes utters the phrase "Si-Re Si-Re, Si-Mi Si-Mi" during battle, which may be a reference to "Si-Re Si-Mi" by Franco Godi.
  • The words that Shyren says seem to be the solfège scale from re to si. Although sol is usually spelled with an "l", Shyren uses the variant two-letter spelling; this may be to keep the two-letter sequence going.
  • If Shyren is hummed to 5 times, Knight Knight can be put to sleep one turn earlier than normal, mentioning that "You sing Shyren's song".
  • Undyne also wonders about Shyren's song.[3]
  • Shyren is one of the monster species making up the Amalgamate Lemon Bread; specifically, Lemon Bread is spared by humming, an ACT adopted specifically from Shyren, and Lemon Bread appears to have Shyren's agent as her main body, giving her a similar overall figure to Shyren's.
  • Shyren's yellow text in the True Pacifist Ending Credits, "Released Her First Single 'When You Say Goodbye It's Like Magical Bullets Are Slowly Flying Out Of Your Mouth And Hitting Me' " is a joke of the way Shyren attacks the protagonist.

  1. Oh yeah, Shyren lives around here. I used to give her piano lessons. She was really talented... for someone with no fingers. One day, she stopped coming to her lessons, though... - Undyne
  2. Shyren's sister "fell down" recently. It's sad. Without her sister to speak for her... She's become more reclusive than ever. So I reached out to her, and told her... That she, Blooky, and I should all perform together sometime. She seemed to like that idea. - Napstablook's Cousin's diary.
  3. How did her song go again...? - Undyne
