“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], with the exception of Europe[citation needed]) is a band of pirates led by Captain Syrup in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and Wario Land II, serving as antagonists in both games respectively. They are headquartered within Syrup Castle on Kitchen Island. The crew is made up primarily of Pirate Gooms and Wanderin' Gooms, with most of the significant members being of other species. Though Captain Syrup returns and appears in Wario Land: Shake It!, her crew does not.

History[edit]

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3[edit]

In Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, the Black Sugar Gang become famous for stealing a number of treasures, most notably a golden statue of Princess Toadstool. 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 succeeds in both overcoming the Black Sugar Gang and eventually defeating Syrup herself.

Wario Land II[edit]

In Wario Land II, three Pirate Gooms led by Captain Syrup secretly raid Wario Castle and loot valuables out of revenge. Outraged, Wario chases them back to Kitchen Island to claim it back. Syrup sends her officers to defeat Wario, though they are unsuccessful. In the end, Wario manages to defeat Captain Syrup and her crew once again, and recovers his stolen treasure.
