Bull Wario Barging

Bull Wario[1][2] is a form Wario takes after getting a Bull Pot (or Garlic Pot unless he is small) in the game Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. In this form, Wario can destroy blocks with just one Body Slam instead of two, and is able to do a ground pound that destroys any enemy or block directly hit and creates a shock wave that stuns any nearby enemy. He is also able to stick to the ceiling with his horns.

Wario can get this power in Virtual Boy Wario Land via a Viking helmet, or by getting another garlic bottle once already in his normal form. The power works very differently compared to the Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 version as it simply changes Wario's Barge to resemble a ground pound. However, this is one of the heaviest forms, making it hard to jump out of quicksand.

In Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart Tour, artwork of Bull Wario can be seen on a sign in Wario Shipyard.
