Crazy Wario, from the Wario Land games
“Watch out for these penguin-looking guys who throw balls at me. If I get hit, I act really strange.”
Wario, Wario Land II

Crazy Wario[1] is one of Wario's transformations in the Wario Land series of games. When hit by a ball thrown by a Penguin in the English version of Wario Land II, he becomes a hard-to-control, dizzy alter-ego. While it is difficult to keep him from getting into trouble, Wario can protect himself with his burping power, belching at baddies to defeat them. In Wario Land 3, Wario achieves this transformation when he gets hit by a red Bird; however, unlike in Wario Land II, Wario does not change color, and he cannot belch to attack. If damaged or doused in water, Wario will be cured. The transformation didn't return in Wario Land 4. In the Japanese version of Wario Land II, the ball is a mug of beer, and Wario is considered intoxicated in this condition. The changes during localization were made due to the inclusion of alcohol being seen as inappropriate for a game for the general audience.
