Map of the level

Crescent Moon Village is the first level of the Sapphire Passage in the Game Boy Advance game Wario Land 4. It is a small village set in the middle of the night with a large, crescent moon in the background and lots of lamp posts. It includes zombie and ghostly enemies, such as the ghost, who steals the coins that either Wario or defeated enemies drop. The ghost also kidnaps Keyzer - the creature that unlocks the next level. It will then lock all doors in the area, forcing the player to rescue Keyzer in order to leave. Dividing the alleys where the ghost lurks are large, empty, buildings filled with Men'ono, Minicula, and Skeleton Birds, the latter of which make progression difficult by forcing the player to fall through platforms.

The level focuses on two transformations; Zombie Wario, inflicted by the Skeleton Birds' projectile attacks, and Bat Wario, given by Minicula. While the Bat form is required to reach a door and Keyzer, the Zombie form is merely used for a few secrets, and the plentiful lamps and spotlights allow Wario to return to normal. This level's CD is called Yesterday's Words and once collected, it can be played in the Sound Room.
