Dragon Wario[1] is one of Wario's many transformations in the Wario Land series.

It first appeared in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, where it could be activated by touching a Dragon Pot. Upon obtaining the power-up, he puts on a seemingly-mechanical dragon helmet. When in Dragon form, Wario cannot perform his Body Slam and instead gains the ability to shoot continuous bursts of fire from the helmet's nostrils, allowing him to defeat enemies from a distance and quickly break through lots of blocks at once. The attack works differently underwater, using a short-ranged laser beam instead of flames to attack.

In Virtual Boy Wario Land, Wario can attain a similar form called Sea Dragon Wario.
