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: Find the difference from 15 pixels that reveal Mario.
  • Level 2: Find the difference from 24 pixels that reveal Link.
  • Level 3: Find the difference from 35 pixels that reveal Popo.

The Ice Climber scene uses the game's original Japanese Topi (a seal) rather than the yeti-like creature in the American and localized versions of the game.
