Shorty, known as Bill (ビル) in Japan, is a short person that works on a Hot Dog Stand in the Park in Touch Detective. In Touch Detective 2 ½, he closes it and works on a Choco Banana Stand in the Forest.

Because he is so short, he is never seen by Mackenzie (and in turn the player), as he is always shorter then the counter. Despite this, Shorty claims that Mackenzie is just "too short" to be able able to see him, and that most adults are able to.
