Shiners are enemies in SteamWorld Dig, found in Old World. They usually lie around in drunken stupors, only waking up from nearby sounds. When woken up, they run around and flail their arms. Some carry dynamite that they throw at their enemies. Shiners are highly devolved humans, and may have had something to do with the first Steambot's creation. Then, in SteamWorld Dig 2, more evolved, human-like shiners such as Rosie, are found in the Oasis, where they have built their civilization off of spare metal.
