In-game text, Yoshi's Island DS

Baby Wario is the infant version of Wario, who made his first appearance 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.

Wario also appears as a baby in a scene of the German Club Nintendo magazine comic Warios Weihnachtsmärchen, though not as the character Baby Wario.

History[edit]

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 finds Baby Wario after being washed away by a large wave and separated from the Stork and the other babies. 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 as he appears to be an orphaned homeless baby. 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.

Dr. Mario World[edit]

After a 14-year absence, Baby Wario returns in the June 26, 2020 update for Dr. Mario World as Dr. Baby Wario and makes his first official 3D appearance overall. Dr. Baby Wario's special skill has him use his magnetism power to collect all the coins in a targeted area, while in Vs Mode, Dr. Baby Wario sends three to twelve Coins over to the opponent, depending on his level.

Characteristics[edit]

Physical appearance[edit]

Baby Wario shares many physical qualities with his adult counterpart. They both wear a yellow cap, have cyan lines around their eyes, 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 (similar to Baby Mario and Baby Luigi). His teeth are also shown to be far more visible then the rest of the baby characters.

Baby Wario reappears in Dr. Mario World; he greatly resembles his original incarnation, including using the same golden magnet, but now wears a white lab coat and a tie featuring his emblem, although his artwork features Mario's emblem, but directly flipped vertically and blue instead of red. He also now wears purple pants and green shoes, giving him a closer appearance to the current designs of Baby Mario and Baby Luigi.

Personality[edit]

Baby Wario arguing with Baby Bowser

Baby Wario's cry is the noisiest out of the babies in Yoshi's Island DS. Similarly to 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.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite his artwork from Yoshi's Island DS 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.
  • In Mario Super Sluggers, although Baby Wario does not make an appearance, his adult counterpart uses a magnet as his captain ability in Challenge Mode.
