Dire Plates is one of Orbulon's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! Its name is a pun on "dire straits".


When the game starts, the player will see a messed up picture. Their job is to make a complete image by rotating the glass plates. If done correctly, the game is won. However, if time is up and the picture is still scrambled, the player will lose the game.

  • 1st level difficulty: The player must rotate one plate. The picture can be a cartoonish pig or sheep.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The player must rotate two plates. The picture can be a realistic pig or sheep.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Same as Level 2, but the player must rotate the plates more to solve the image. The picture can be a pork chop or wool sweater.
