First appearance Wario: Master of Disguise (2007)

The Ancient Waterworks is the sixth level in Wario: Master of Disguise and serves as the location of the third Wishstone piece. It takes place in some ancient ruins in the jungle. Its inhabitants consist primarily of monstrous plants such as Seed Weeds and Thorn Weeds. The water here is purple and many platforms fall from the ceiling, damaging Wario if he gets hit.

History[edit]

Episode 6: A Flower That's Drunk Up Power![edit]

Wario is magically transported here after he successfully beats Poobah the Pharaoh in his pyramid. Upon entering the ruins, Goodstyle notes the huge waterfall that is crashing in the background and he suspects that something is hidden behind it, so Wario searches for a way to get rid of the waterfall. On the way, he gets an upgrade for Cosmic Wario.

Wario stops the waterfall by using stone statues to clog the water that forms it, revealing a hidden room. Wario goes inside and finds the third Wishstone fragment, but a giant flower swallows it, so Wario has to fight the flower to get it back. Wario defeats the flower, but when Goodstyle tries to read the writing on the Wishstone piece, it makes no sense.

...Ca...mak...Qtl... ...Re...zrg...mro... ...Hfr...zrg...akl...

Wario blames the flower for this, but then Count Cannoli comes in, demanding Goodstyle back in exchange for the location of the next Wishstone piece. After an argument, Cannoli says that he will be waiting at Sweatmore Peak if Wario ever changed his mind.

Special Episode Part 3[edit]

Later, Wario and Cannoli return to the Ancient Waterworks for unknown reasons. Carpaccio shows up and says that there are parts of an invention of his inside the ruins and that he'll give the invention to whoever finds them. Wario finds them first, but the "invention" turns out to be nothing more than a joke.
