The Awazon river basin is the main location in Virtual Boy Wario Land; however, only a little of it is actually seen, since the game mainly takes place underneath it. Its name refers to the Amazon River, but the M is flipped to a W, similar to Wario's and Mario's names. Wario finds himself underneath the Awazon river basin when the floor collapses underneath him after he follows three Mask-Guys taking treasure behind the Aldegara Waterfall.
Story from the instruction booklet
I, Wario, have an interesting story to tell. One day during my
vacation in the Awazon river basin, I landed my trusty seaplane,
Bulldog, and decide to relax in the shadow of the beautiful Aldegara
Waterfall. While basking in the sun, I spied some strange creatures
with masks entering the waterfall. This piqued my interest!
I hurried over and followed them into the waterfall. Behind the falls
there was a large cave, and in the back of the cave … there was a
vault filled with a glorious mountain of treasure!!
Some of the masked creatures jumped me, but I quickly overcame
them. "This treasure is all mine now!", I thought to myself and
rushed in to collect the loot. Suddenly, the floor collapsed and I fell!
I found myself deep within the Earth! I was quite angry and vowed
revenge on these creatures, "I will get their treasure!!!"
