Five-Second Rule is one of Dribble & Spitz's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! The name comes from the term "five second rule," which refers to picking up food off the ground in under five seconds, making it safe to eat.


The game's purpose is to protect a candy from ants. To do so, the player has to move the hand and swat them. If done so, the game is won. However, if an ant reaches the candy, the player loses.

  • 1st level difficulty: There are two ants coming from different directions.
  • 2nd level difficulty: There are three ants coming from different directions or a row of ants.
  • 3rd level difficulty: There are four ants coming from different directions or a large row of ants.
