“Aaargh! I can't believe that Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang have stolen my treasures! I am one angry Wario! I'm going to get my treasures back if it's the last thing I do!”
Wario, Wario Land II instruction booklet, page 3

The Black Sugar Gang[1] (originally known as the Brown Sugar Pirates[2] except in Europe[citation needed]) is a group of pirates led by Captain Syrup in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and Wario Land II. Their base of operations is Syrup Castle, located on Kitchen Island. The crew is made up mostly of Pirate Gooms and Wanderin' Gooms, though most of the significant members are of other species (for example, Bobo of their pirate ship, the SS Tea Cup).

Captain Syrup later appeared in Wario Land: Shake It! without her crew.


Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3[edit]

In Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, the Black Sugar Gang was well-known for stealing many great treasures, including a giant golden statue of Princess Toadstool. Upon hearing this, Wario travels to Kitchen Island, planning to steal their treasures and reclaim the statue for reward money. After traversing throughout the island, Wario succeedes in overcoming the Black Sugar Gang and eventually defeats Syrup herself.

Wario Land II[edit]

In Wario Land II, three Pirate Gooms led by Captain Syrup secretly raid Wario Castle and pick up three bags of valuables out of revenge. Enraged, Wario chases them on their way back to Kitchen Island to reclaim the stolen treasure. Syrup sends her officers to defeat Wario, but they eventually fall to him. In the end, Wario defeats Captain Syrup once again, and re-obtains the stolen treasure.
