Art (right) and Deco (left).

Art and Deco (or Art and Decko) are two musicians of Mona's rock band in WarioWare: Touched!. Their band is called "Mona and the Hot Slices." While Mona plays the bass guitar, the yellow, slightly bear-like Deco beatboxes and raps, while the tiny, dark-gray, and slightly imp-like Art plays an instrument that may be a banjo or a round-bodied electric guitar. In "Ear Candy", a television show of the Diamond Broadcasting System, Ken the VJ announces that Mona and her Hot Slices reached the top of the record charts and displaced the pop singer Vanessa from the first place, who performs with the Dinosaurs as the backing guitarists. He also states that the Hot Slices will have a gig at the Hawt House. Vanessa watches the show and gets enraged along with the Dinosaurs about it and plots to ruin the Hot Slices' chances of performing there.

At this time, Mona, Art, and Deco are doing their last bit of practice at Mona Pizza before their gig. When they are done, Mona drives her scooter towards the Hawt House. Art and Deco follow her in a van with Mona's logo on it. As Mona and her Hot Slices are on their way, Vanessa and the Dinosaurs appear on motorcycles and hamper the trio. Vanessa then drives toward the Hawt House while the Dinosaurs hop into their bird-like machine and fly over Mona, Art, and Deco. They then use a mechanical claw to kidnap Art. Pizza Joe and Mona's animal companions come to help, but they are knocked away by the machine. 4.1 and 4.2 then fly in and shoot soccer balls at the machine, but are unable to stop it. Deco then uses the lever from the van to eject himself at the Dinosaurs' machine and releases Art. The Dinosaurs' flying machine then comes crashing down on the street and the band hurries to the Hawt House.

At the Hawt House, fans are already awaiting the appearance of the performers. Then, a speaker announces the gig of Mona and The Hot Slices, who come onto the stage and perform. Vanessa, who is also present at the Hawt House, gets very angry; however, when Mona realizes that she has to deliver pizzas, she drives off on her scooter with her guitar. While Art and Deco stop playing and are embarrassed, Vanessa gets an idea and wears a wig and a hat on her head similar to Mona's, then describes herself as Mona. However, the public do not believe her lie and throw various objects at her while booing. Later in the game, Art and Deco are still seen performing with Mona and Vanessa at the Hawt House.

In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Art and Deco make a brief appearance in Young Cricket & Master Mantis' story where they assist Mona and Joe in selling dumplings, along with Mona's animals.

The names "Art and Deco" are puns on Art Deco, an architectural style.
