Cold Call is one of Ashley & Red's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. The name comes from the expression "cold-call", the act of making an unsolicited visit or phone call by someone to sell something.


A telephone will ring at a random point, and the player must quickly pick it up. A person's voice then comes through from the Wii Remote.

  • Level 1: The telephone will ring. A lady is shown answering the phone.
  • Level 2: Same as level 1, but sometimes the telephone stops ringing. A man slightly resembling Ishikawa Goemon is shown answering the phone.
  • Level 3: A cellphone will ring. After picking it up, the player has to press the button to answer it. The cellphone will display a frog answering a phone.

The voice from the Wii Remote can say one of the following:

  • "Hey! What's up?"
  • "Hello! How are you?"
  • "HELP! HELP ME!!"
  • "Can I get a Mona Pizza, please?"
  • "Sorry! Wrong number!"
