Dragon Wario description, Nintendo Character Guide

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

It first appears in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, where it can be activated by touching a Dragon Pot. Upon obtaining the power-up, Wario puts on a Dragon Hat,[2] which is shaped like a green dragon's head and has an orange mechanical gear on the back. When in Dragon form, Wario cannot perform his Body Slam and instead gains the ability to shoot continuous bursts of fire from the Dragon Hat'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.
