|First appearance||WarioWare: D.I.Y. (2009)|
|Latest appearance||WarioWare Gold (2018)|
The Dude in Undies, also known as dancing-man, is a character who appears in WarioWare: D.I.Y., and has made several other appearances throughout the WarioWare series. As his name suggests, he is a man wearing only blue striped shorts. Other characters exist that are nearly identical to the Dude in Undies, but wear different clothing; one wearing a leotard and sporting a stubble is called the Man in Leotard, and another wearing a caveman costume and sporting a full beard is called the Cave Man.
In WarioWare: D.I.Y., the Dude in Undies and Man in Leotard appear in the Game MakerMatic and Comic MakerMatic modes of the Super MakerMatic 21. The Dude in Undies is in charge of the Palette Orientation options, the Cave Man, of the Stamp Orientation options, and the Man in Leotard, of the Character Orientation options. Moreover, the Dude in Undies is also seen in an animation walking or running on a treadmill in the Art Animation Speed window for visualisation of the set speed.
Additionally, the Dude in Undies is a stamp that can be placed while creating art for a microgame. He is also an instrument of the Voice type found the Super MakerMatic 21's music making tool, here called Wah Dude, while another instrument called the Opera Man is identical to the Man in Leotard.
Three Dudes in Undies appear in the microgame Dance Dudes. The player must rotate and flip one of them to match the two others that appear. A dancing man similar to the Dude in Undies appears in Circuit Path; however, this man wears a purple suit and hat instead.
Game & Wario
In the Gamer minigame from Game & Wario, all three variants of the Dude in Undies appear in the microgame Record Guy, where the player must flick them off the spinning record. On the microgame's first difficulty level, a Dude in Undies stands still on the record. On the second difficulty level, a Man in Leotard stands on the record and jumps randomly. On the third difficulty level, two Cave Men stand on the record, and both jump randomly.
The Dude in Undies also appears in the Pirates minigame in the Sparkly Ocean stage; this appearance is mentioned by Mona in the Cluck-A-Pop prize Mona Superscoop 16. In the Twinkly Planet stage, both the Dude in Undies and the Cave Man appear.
The three variants of the Dude in Undies appear in the microgame Grape Aim. On the microgame's first difficulty level, a Dude in Undies carries a bunch of grapes, which the player must shoot. On the second difficulty level, a Man in Leotard carries grapes. On the third difficulty level, a Cave Man carries grapes and a second Cave Man carries a pot, which the player must avoid shooting.
Each of these characters also appear as enemies in Wario Kard. The Dude in Undies reduces the player's hand to two cards and often uses scissors, the Cave Man only reduces the player's hand to two cards without a move preference, and the Man in Leotard has no special details.
