Wario holding the Form Baton

The Form Baton is a major object featured in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. It is an old Wii Remote used as the controls for the entire game, with all in-game instructions using the term "Form Baton" to refer to the player's Wii Remote. The Form Baton also has a Nunchuk counterpart, known as the Balance Stone, which is shown in Orbulon's set of microgames. During the events of the game, Wario stumbles upon the Form Baton after crash-landing into the Temple of Form. He soon finds out that how one uses it depends on the way one holds it, in reference to how the player must hold the Form Baton in different positions to play the different types of microgames.

Forms[edit]

Forms, as the name implies, are the modes of holding the Wii Remote Form Baton (Wii Remote) in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. The forms are introduced by the form explanation, which acts as an often comedic tutorial of how to use each form. Each form is used for certain microgames in the game. Below is a list of forms (and compatible microgames) in order of their appearance (microgames in an italic font last twice as long).

Trivia[edit]

  • The way that Wario takes the Form Baton before getting chased by a boulder in the "Mysterious Form Baton" stage is similar to one of the events from the movie Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, in which Indiana Jones takes the golden idol out of the Lost Temple and gets chased by a boulder, one of the temple's obstacles.
