Cutscene to Sheriff (minigame) after maxing out the points.

Betty[1] is the damsel-in-distress in the WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! minigame Sheriff, which is named after the original 1979 arcade game (from which Betty originates). After Wario chases off the titular Sheriff, he must rescue Betty from gangs of rogues. Each time he succeeds, a cutscene plays showing them embracing, with more color added to it each time. When the points are maxed out, Wario rides away with Betty on his horse. This ending cutscene is very similar to the HeartMedia:MarioFB.png minigame found in Family BASIC V3.[2][3]

Betty is Nintendo's first female video game character, predating Manhole's "alarm lady" and Pauline by under two years. Like Pauline, she was also known as Lady (レディ) in print ads,[4] reviews,[5] and flyers.[6] She was created by Shigeru Miyamoto, who worked on the art design for Sheriff.[7]
