Cavity Calamity is a microgame found in the IQ folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and returns as one of Mona's microgames in WarioWare Gold.


The objective of the game is to examine both the upper and lower teeth lines to infer where the safe gap will be when the mouth closes, then move the cavity germ to that spot in time.

WarioWare: Mega Microgame$[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: The pattern of the teeth is relatively simple, making the gap noticeable.

  • 3rd level difficulty: Height changes are usually more numerous and uneven than in the previous levels.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: There are two smooth misalignments on each row.
  • 2nd level difficulty: There are three smooth misalignments on each row.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The upper and lower teeth rows are zigzagged.
