In-game render of DinoMighty from Wario World
Species Dinosaur
First appearance Wario World (2003)

DinoMighty is the first of the four major bosses in the Nintendo GameCube game Wario World that Wario must fight to regain his treasure. She is battled in the third and final stage of Excitement Central, DinoMighty's Showdown, which is unlocked by completing Greenhorn Ruins. DinoMighty is a pun on "dinosaur", "dynamite", and "mighty".

DinoMighty has a variety of attacks. She will jump around the arena, creating shockwaves that must be jumped over, lest Wario be knocked into a daze for a few seconds. The same attack could also flatten Wario if he happens to be under DinoMighty. Another one of DinoMighty's attacks includes her eyes flashing red and her tongue, which has a Glue Globe on the end, lashing out at Wario. If Wario sticks to the Glue Globe, she will use her tongue to smash him on the ground.

To beat DinoMighty, first Wario must dodge her attacks. Once she has finished with a few attacks, she will begin stomping around the arena. When this happens, Wario must grab the Glue Globe at the end of her tail. Eventually, she will lose track of Wario, raising her tail over her head. Wario has to let go of the Glue Globe and Ground Pound her head to put her into a daze, then he must use any of his Mad Moves.

Alternatively, Wario can grab a column and Mega Toss it at her. If the column strikes one of the feet, she will jump around in pain, eventually landing in the lava outside the arena, releasing a large amount of coins. If the column strikes her elsewhere, she will simply become stunned.

A final way for Wario to stun her is using Wario's simple punch by repeatedly striking her on the bandage on her stomach. If Wario does this too much, the boss will try to step on him. Eventually, DinoMighty will become dazed and Wario can pick her up and use his Mad Moves against her.

It takes five powerful moves to defeat DinoMighty. When she is defeated, Wario receives the first piece of the Huge Treasure Chest Key and gains access to Spooktastic World.

Physical appearance[edit]

DinoMighty is a massive green female dinosaur mostly based upon a T-Rex. She has a tan stomach, and is marked with a few small orange spots on her back and around her bottom region. She has large bulging eyes, and what seems to be curly yellow hair. She has a pair of rings on each of her hands, which are much like Birdo's, only much larger and a golden color. She has lipstick on the tip of her snout and a long tongue with a Glue Globe on the tip. DinoMighty wears what appears to be a skimpy, bright red bikini, consisting of a red top with very thin straps over her chest area, and a matching bikini bottom. Her legs are very short, each with three claws. She has a tail extending from her rear, that has a short length and is mostly featureless except for a Glue Globe appearing on the tip. Due to her bikini, DinoMighty's stomach is exposed. In the middle of her bulging belly, there is an X-shaped bandage serving as a weak spot.
