Baby Wario is the infant version of Wario. His first and only appearance thus far is in Yoshi's Island DS. He appears to be very greedy similarly to his adult counterpart, as he carries a Coin magnet. Baby Wario's special move is "magnetism", in which he pulls out a magnet which attracts coins. His magnet is also capable of raising metallic platforms and moving large, metal boxes.

Baby Wario is the only baby from Yoshi's Island DS who does not appear in other games or media. However, Wario does appear as a baby in a scene of the German Club Nintendo magazine comic Warios Weihnachtsmärchen, though not as the character Baby Wario.


Yoshi's Island DS[edit]

When Baby Wario was originally kidnapped in Yoshi's Island DS, the Toadies found his crying to be annoying, so they left him alone in World 3-5. Some time after that, Yoshi, who has been washed away by a large wave and separated from the Stork and other babies, finds him. Baby Wario assisted Yoshi throughout the rest of World 3, but leaves him after World 3-8, joining up with a group of Bandits in hope of even more riches. Yoshi and the rest of the babies meet up with Baby Wario one last time in Bowser's Castle. He helps the Yoshis by defeating Bowser on the back of Purple Yoshi. After the castle is destroyed and the team finds the babies, Baby Wario lands on a very large Treasure Chest filled with his treasure. However, Baby Bowser also lands in the treasure, initiating an argument over it.

At the end of the game, it is revealed that Baby Wario, like Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Bowser, Baby Donkey Kong, Baby Peach, and Baby Yoshi, is one of the seven star children.

Physical appearance[edit]

Baby Wario shares many physical qualities with his adult counterpart. They both wear a yellow cap and have a large, pink nose. Brown hair is visible under his cap. However, unlike Wario, Baby Wario does not wear gloves. Instead, Baby Wario wears nothing but a diaper and a cap.


Baby Wario arguing with Baby Bowser.

Baby Wario's cry is the loudest out of the babies in Yoshi's Island DS. Similarly his adult counterpart, he has a tendency to be greedy. When Yoshi and the babies get to World 5, Baby Wario is seen arguing with Baby Bowser, implying that Baby Wario is quite argumentative. Unlike the other babies, he can talk. During the final boss battle, Baby Wario rides a Purple Yoshi. He is shown to be a bit more willing to work together with the other babies than his adult self and their adult counterparts.

Instruction Booklet Baby Abilities information

With his magnet, Baby Wario automatically attracts metal (including coins) around Yoshi. Press Up on +Control Pad or jump to attract things above Yoshi.

  • Special Ability: Attracting Metal


  • Despite his artwork from the game having him on Light Blue Yoshi, this is impossible in actual gameplay, since he only appears from levels 3-5 to 3-8 (Light Blue Yoshi is the third level of every world) and in 5-8, where he rides Green Yoshi and Purple Yoshi.
