“Stouter than an iron burrito... Studlier than a snow tire... I am... Wario-Man!”
Wario-Man, WarioWare: Touched!

Wario-Man is Wario's alter-ego in the WarioWare games. Wario transforms into this form by eating some sort of garlic, his favorite food. In the WarioWare games, Wario-Man hosts the last set of microgames the player faces. There are no rules to his games and they all involve Wario to at least some degree. Wario-Man also appears as Wario's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


WarioWare series[edit]

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

Sprite of Wario-Man in WarioWare: Twisted!.

In WarioWare: Twisted!, while checking up on Dr. Crygor's production of WarioWare: Twisted! systems, Wario decides to sit down on the assembly line and play a game. He is then tossed into Dr. Crygor's Gravitator. When he comes out, he turns into Wario-Man. When the player completes his stage, he goes back in the Gravitator and gets a power suit, and flies up in space. Meanwhile, Orbulon, Mona, 9-Volt, 18-Volt, Kat and Ana take a cruise on Orbulon's new ship, a yellow Oinker. The Oinker then sees Wario-Man and attacks him. Mona recognizes Wario in the suit. After being attacked, he falls down in the sea near Crygor's lab. Crygor is seen fishing, and he reels in Wario!

WarioWare: Twisted! is the only time Wario-Man's mustache is red. In all other games, it is black.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

Wario-Man, as seen in WarioWare: Touched!

Wario-Man appears again in WarioWare: Touched!, though how Wario transforms into him is different. In this game, Wario starts to feel sick. He decides to eat some garlic to relieve himself, but the only garlic head left in the fridge is green and odd-looking. Since garlic is Wario's personal cure-all, he goes ahead and eats it anyway. The garlic infects Wario's stomach with viruses, and when Wario's immune system eats the viruses (thanks to the player) the reaction turns Wario into Wario-Man, and he starts to go on a rampage. Later on, Wario-Man is hit by a train and gets knocked all the way into a sewer, where he changes back into Wario, fights the Sewer Guru, and gets hurt by doing so.

This game suggests that Wario-Man doesn't gain many enhanced abilities, as it is shown he can't fly very high or fast, and he has difficulty crushing a toaster and the train that eventually knocks him away. However, it may simply mean Wario's sickness wasn't cured by the garlic.

WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase[edit]

Wario-Man appears in WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase, the WiiWare counterpart to WarioWare: D.I.Y.. He helps people open doors to the bathroom. Succeeding one of the microgames will make Wario-Man successfully open a door to the bathroom. Failing a microgame causes Wario-Man to fail at opening the door.

Game & Wario[edit]

Wario-Man cameos twice in Game & Wario: in the second stage of a microgame in Gamer, where he must avoid a dinosaur's foot; and in one of the prizes of Cluck-A-Pop, where he is answering the phone after the player dials a phone number. It is notable that Wario-Man refers to himself as W-Man in the latter cameo, rather than his full name.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Wario-Man in Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Wario-Man, as he appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Wario-Man is Wario's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Unlike most Final Smashes, Wario's Final Smash is more of a power-up than an attack. When the Final Smash is used, he eats Nasty Garlic and gains a superhero suit, greatly increasing his attack power and speed. He can use regular attack moves in a quick follow-up. He is also invincible in this state, and will not take damage (unless he goes off-screen, or eats any explosives) or even flinch from attacks. When using his normal attacks, he will hit with extra power, or gain added effects to the moves. His punches will act similarly to a Smash Attack, and his mid-air moves allow him to gain altitude with each move (except his down aerial, which can now meteor smash). The Corkscrew also gains electric effects, the Wario Bike travels much faster, and his Wario Waft can be a one-hit KO.

Unlike in WarioWare: Twisted!, Wario's mustache, for his appearance as Wario-Man in this series, remains black rather than turning red.

Rhythm Tengoku: The Best+[edit]

Official profiles and statistics[edit]

Website Bio from WarioWare: Touched![edit]

What a radioactive spider is to Peter Parker, a particularly nasty old clove of garlic is to Wario. Wario-Man's superpowers are something of a mystery. He's not afraid of chopping a giant's nosehairs, though.

Instruction booklet[edit]

"Stouter than an iron burrito... Studlier than a snow tyre... Faster than a galloping mule! He is... er... I am... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARIO-MAN!"

"What?! You want me to help you cross the street?! Bwaaaah! Do I wear shiny armour? Do I ride a white stallion? You're barking up the wrong fire hydrant, old lady!"

"You never know what kind of touch technique you'll have to use in my bold and spicy SUPER ZERO mix!"

Wario-Man BrawlTrophy034.png Wario's Final Smash. He chomps on his favorite food, garlic, and transforms into Wario-Man! His mobility goes way up. His attack power doesn't change much, but he scampers like a cockroach, using moves like crazy! He can jump over buildings and use midair attacks to fly. Oh, and he doesn't flinch from attacks. Think twice about bringing out his motorcycle at this time...

  • In artwork, Wario-Man has light pink shoes, while in the games, they have a darker color pink.
    • The exception to this is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
  • Wario-Man's nose is red in WarioWare: Twisted!, Touched!, and partly D.I.Y. Showcase, while in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (and sometimes D.I.Y. Showcase, like in his artwork from that game), his nose is pink.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wario-Man is unaffected by the effects of Metal Boxes. Even in a Metal Special Brawl, Wario-Man will not take a metallic appearance.
