Armed and Dangerous is one of Dribble & Spitz's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves and returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Dr. Crygor's microgames. The name is a pun on the idiom "Armed and dangerous", which is used to warn people of dangerous fugitives.


The player has to win an arm-wrestling match by thrusting the Wii Remote or Nintendo 3DS to the side to slam down the opponent's arm. Both of the characters are the player's Miis. In WarioWare Gold, the Miis have instead been replaced by fixed human characters (or a bear for the third level).

  • 1st level difficulty: The opponent does not put up a struggle. In WarioWare Gold, the opponent is a young man.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The opponent puts up moderate struggle. In WarioWare Gold, the opponent is a bodybuilder.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The opponent puts up a strong struggle. In WarioWare Gold, the opponent is a bear.
