First Appearance Wario: Master of Disguise (2007)

Carpaccio's Lab is the ninth level in Wario: Master of Disguise. It is Carpaccio's main base of operations and the home of the fourth Wishstone fragment. It is very high-tech with a lot of robots patrolling the area. It's main gimmick involves the power generators, which supply electricity to the various devices inside the lab. They are deactivated by default due to Count Cannoli shutting off the power to them, but they can be charged up by using Sparky Wario. There are two sets of four generators; one set supplies yellow electricity and the other supplies blue electricity, each color powering different devices. Whenever Wario presses a button in the lab, some of the power gets drained from the generators. Each generator can be charged up to power two button presses, allowing for a total of eight presses for each color every time Wario charges them.

History[edit]

Episode 9: More Shocking Than the Next Episode?[edit]

After defeating Stuffy the 64th in Blowhole Castle, the girl from the previous two episodes finally introduces herself as Tiaramisu. However, she also says that she can no longer continue with her current power, then vanishes. Wario progresses through the last few rooms of the castle, finding the Dragon Mastery Gem in the process.

Once Wario exits the castle, he is confronted by Count Cannoli. Wario demands to know where the remaining Wishstone pieces are, but Cannoli summons the Mad Hat Mk. III and commences his third and final battle with Wario. Wario wins, and once again demands the location of the Wishstone pieces, but Cannoli tricks him and escapes into the lab, with Wario angrily giving chase.

Upon entering the lab, Wario and Goodstyle find four power generators, which power the devices in the lab and can be charged using Sparky Wario. After exploring the lab for a short while, Wario obtains his first new form since Episode 4, Wicked Wario, allowing him to fly, but only straight up. Later on, Wario gets the Wicked Mastery Gem, letting him fly sideways as well as upward. Eventually, Wario finds himself blocked by a gray wall that seems to have been built in a hurry, but Wario gets past it by blowing it up with dynamite.

After breaking through the wall, Wario comes face-to-face with Cannoli and his previously unseen ally, along with the fourth Wishstone piece. Cannoli's ally, who reveals himself to be Carpaccio, calls off the alliance due to Cannoli's failures, then reveals that he had been watching Wario since their first encounter at Sneezemore Cave and knows him much better now. Knowing he can't beat Wario in a battle of strength, he challenges him to a race. Carpaccio says he will hand over his Wishstone piece if Wario wins, but if Carpaccio wins, he gets all of Wario's pieces. Despite Carpaccio rigging the race in his favor, Wario wins, and Goodstyle reads the writing on the newly-acquired Wishstone tablet.

The text on the Wishstone piece was: All...all of...shstones...sought... All pieces are collected... the wish...to... That is when...all of... wish...may be granted.

Though the text seemed to indicate that whoever reassembled the Wishstone would have their wish granted, Goodstyle noted that some important details of the story were missing.
