Wario, Wario Land 4

Fat Wario, also known as Large Wario[1], is one of Wario's many transformations from the Wario Land series of games. To achieve this state, Wario must eat a cake thrown by a Cook, a doughnut thrown by a Doughnuteer, or an apple thrown by an Appleby or a Ringosukī. This will cause him to swell to immense portions of morbid obesity, allowing him to destroy enemies and certain blocks by simply bouncing them off his stomach, but his Jumping abilities will greatly diminish and he will waddle slowly, although his regular jumps have the effect of Ground Pounds when he falls. His immensely corpulent state can be remedied by walking for awhile or falling into water.

Fat Wario makes a brief appearance in Super Mario-Kun. Before Wario ground pounds on Cractus, Arewo Shitain-hakase throws an apple to Wario's mouth, transforming Wario into Fat Wario. Although Fat Wario lands in the jaws of Cractus, Fat Wario's weight crushes it, defeating it.

Fat Wario makes a cameo appearance in WarioWare: Touched! in the microgame Wanna Slice?. When the player cuts the pizza into eight slices (in the third level difficulty of the microgame), the artwork of Fat Wario can be seen on the dish.
