8-Bit Hero is a microgame found in WarioWare: Touched! in the Retro Action stage. It features sprites from the NES games Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Ice Climber.


The object is to find the odd pixel out to match the example on the Top Screen. When the player succeeds, a brief scene from the respective game complete with music is shown. This game has twice the time to complete, as it requires thinking.

  • Level 1: The player must find the difference from a 5×3 area (15 pixels) that reveals Mario.
  • Level 2: The player must find the difference from a 6×4 area (24 pixels) that reveals Link.
  • Level 3: The player must find the difference from a 7×5 area (35 pixels) that reveals Popo.

The Ice Climber scene uses the game's Famicom Topi (a seal) rather than the yeti-like creature in the VS. System and NES-based versions of the game.
