Captain Wario is one of Wario's many forms in Wario: Master of Disguise. This form can be used after Wario gets the Captain Guise Gem from the Smithsnorian Museum. To use Captain Wario, the player must draw a backwards "C" to the right of Wario. In this form, Wario can row through water in an inner tube, or even go completely underwater in a submarine and shoot torpedoes. However, for Wario to go in the submarine, he must first learn the move separately.


Wario as Captain Wario wears a pirate hat on his head wears goggles with a snorkel. His body is hidden inside of his submarine that is silver in color and has images of a skull and a "W" on it.

Powers and Abilities[edit]

Captain Wario is able to navigate through water and is able to breath underwater as well. He is also able to navigate through molten lava but is required to have an item called the Sweatmore Hotpants in order to avoid taking damage. Once the mastery gem for this disguise is acquired, Captain Wario will be able to shoot missiles allowing him to damage enemies and destroy certain objects.

Like with Genius Wario and Sparky Wario, Captain Wario's main weakness is lacking an offensive move until Wario gets the mastery gem later in the game. Navigating Captain Wario through the waters can be tricky due to the d-pad nature of the DS.

  • In Wario Land: Shake It!, Wario can once again ride in a submarine and shoot torpedoes, but the Subwarine bears no resemblance to Captain Wario's submarine. Also, Wario does not assume a pirate persona.
