Cut of the Profit is Young Cricket and Master Mantis' boss microgame in WarioWare: Move It! Its name is based off of a term in which a company's earnings are distributed among its employees.


The player controls a robotic drone which continuously fires a laser beam. The player must remove all the gold by cutting the bricks supporting it. Upon doing so, the drone collects the gold that fell and proceed. The player can also collect a single gold piece by directly shooting it. The player must also be careful not to touch the red walls which would zap the drone and destroy it. After a few walls are cut through, the player reaches the exit in which they must cut a hole clearing a path to the door. After opening the door, the drone escapes. There is a time limit to complete the course. If the timer expires, the drone self-destructs.

  • Level 1: The cutting pattern is simple and there are a few red walls. The player has 50 seconds to finish.
  • Level 2: The cutting pattern is more complex. The player has 60 seconds to finish.
  • Level 3: The cutting pattern is even more complex with more red walls. The player has 70 seconds to finish.

In multiplayer, two players control a blue robotic drone and an orange robotic drone, respectively.
