Body Block is a microgame in the Reality folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and returns as one of Jimmy T's microgames in WarioWare Gold.


There is a person set horizontally on the bottom of the screen, and a watermelon bouncing around, similar to paddle-and-ball. The player must use the +Control Pad to move the person back and forth and prevent the watermelon from falling through the bottom of the screen.

  • 1st level difficulty: The person is a man who has his arms extended over his head, covering around 60% of the gap.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The person is a man who has his arms down, covering around 50% of the gap.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The person is a kid, covering around 40% of the gap.

In WarioWare Gold, Body Block is reclassified as a Sports-themed microgame, same thing as paddle-and-ball. As such, the watermelon is replaced with sports balls: a soccer ball in the first level, a basketball in the second level and a volleyball in the third level. The person in each stage now dresses accordingly to match that sport.
