Cutting It Close is one of WarioWatch's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! It returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Penny's microgames. The name is a play on the idiom "cutting it close", meaning to do something before time is up.


The game's purpose is to shave the man's face by moving the razor. If done so, the game is won.

The player starts off the game with 5 seconds.

  • 1st level difficulty: The man's face has a small amount of hair. He smiles when the game is won.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The man's face has more hair. When won, he still smiles, but is missing a tooth.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The man's face has a bigger amount of hair. His nose drips with a little snot and he smiles when won.
