Flaming Wario,[1][2] also known as Hot Wario,[3] Fiery Wario,[4] and Fire Wario,[5] is a reaction in the Wario Land series. It involves Wario running frantically around an area as fire (similar to Mario running around with his overalls on fire from Super Mario 64) gradually engulfs him, eventually turning him into a flame that can defeat enemies and destroy certain blocks on contact.


Wario Land series[edit]

When hit only by a Flame enemy, a flame torch, a Fire Robota, a snake's fiery breath, the sun's fireballs, a Kaentsubo, or the flames from a Pig Head Statue or Aerodent, Wario will comically start racing around with his overalls on fire. In this state, he cannot be controlled, except for jumping. In Wario Land II only, he jumps higher when pressing up on +Control Pad. After either an amount of time has passed (in Wario Land II and Wario Land 3) or Wario bounds off a wall or other unbreakable object three times (Wario Land 4 and Wario Land: Shake It!), the flames will spread across his entire body, making him essentially a living fireball. He can now be fully controlled (although slowed down a bit and no longer able to jump) and can destroy Bonfire Blocks. In Wario Land II, the fireball does not stop moving, making it less controllable than in the later games where the form stands still if the player is not pressing a direction on the control pad. The state can be cured by falling into water or just waiting until he burns out.

In Wario Land: Shake It!, Wario can once again use this form; however, it can only be activated by coming into contact with a Flimflam.

Super Mario-kun[edit]

Flaming Wario makes a minor appearance in volume 28 of Super Mario-kun. Aerodent sets Wario on fire. Hoggus attempts to help Wario, but aggravates the situation instead, angering Wario. Wario responds by contacting Hoggus while Wario is encased in fire.

Densetsu no Stafy 3[edit]

It has been requested that this section be rewritten and expanded to include more information. Reason: needs specifics on Flaming Wario's gameplay role

Flaming Wario is one of three Wario reactions appearing in Densetsu no Stafy 3, along with Bubble Wario and Puffy Wario in Wario's guest appearance in Kaitei Iseki.
