Count Cannoli (also known as "The Silver Zephyr") is the main antagonist of Wario: Master of Disguise. He is a gentleman thief who stars in The Silver Zephyr, a TV show that Wario watches, inspiring him to jump into the show himself, and steal the Count's wand, Goodstyle. Throughout the game, Count Cannoli pursues Wario, attempting to get his wand back and get revenge against him. Through the game he is also a rival of Carpaccio, another thief.

Similar to Mario, he has an Italian accent and shouts "Mamamia" when defeated in the second and third (against him) boss fight. Cannoli has a family, that has each his own machine. Though it is unknown if any other members of the Cannoli family are still alive, Cannoli's machine is the Mad Hat Mk. I. The Mad Hat Mk. II is probably the entire family's machine. Using his company and cutting-edge technology he made the Mad Hat Mk. III.

Cannoli owns a company called International Evil Concerns Inc.

He later appears in Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a spirit.
