Basket Case is a microgame found in the Total Drag stage in WarioWare: Touched! The microgame's name is a pun on the term "basketcase", a person who is made ineffective due to their emotions.


The objective of the game is to drag the man with the basket to catch the bouncing object. If the ball hits the ground, it simply bounces back up, giving the player another chance to catch it.

  • 1st level difficulty: A simple ball is dropped.
  • 2nd level difficulty: A smaller object is dropped.
  • 3rd level difficulty: An object that resembles a UFO is dropped.
