Shimmy Zmizz is a character that appears in Mother 3, and plays a role as the keyboardist in the DCMC. He first appears in Chapter 4 and later in Chapter 8.

In Chapter 4, Lucas faces off against Shimmy Zmizz in a game of Stone-Sheet-Clippers, where Shimmy will pick always pick Stone.

Shimmy reappears along with the rest of the DCMC in Chapter 8 for their final concert, as well as when all hope is lost during the battle with Mecha-Porky, and the DCMC, along with Shimmy, burst in and attack the Mecha-Porkies.

He also has a very similar appearance to the unnamed pianist from the Runaway Five.
