Fancy Footwork is one of Mona's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! and one of Dr. Crygor's microgames in WarioWare Gold. The name alludes to the idiom "fancy footwork", describing a person who is skilled at maneuvering, especially in dancing and sports.


The purpose of the game is to keep the ball in the air by kicking it up. If the ball is in the air without touching the ground, the game is won. However, if the ball hits the ground, the game ends in a loss.

  • 1st level difficulty: Every time the ball is kicked, it will bounce to the other side.
  • 2nd level difficulty: Sometimes the ball doesn't go to the other side when it's kicked. Whether it does or not is random, so the player needs to be alert.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The ball will launch high into the air after beginning the kick. It can fall on either side, and it falls very suddenly.
