Switch (Wario Land 4)
A switch, also referred to as a Timer or Portal Switch, is an object that appears at the end of every level in Wario Land 4. When Wario jumps on a switch, it will open up to reveal a ticking time bomb, and any solid Kaeru Blocks will turn transparent and vice-versa. Wario then yells "Hurry up!", the game's theme becomes more intense, and the player is given a certain amount of time to escape the level by returning to the vortex at the beginning of the stage. If Wario does not escape before the timer runs out, his coins and score will quickly deplete. If the score reaches zero, Wario will be forced out of the level and back to the main map.
The times given by the switches vary on the game mode. In the level Fiery Cavern, the switch turns the level into ice. In Hotel Horror, there are two doors which have a frog sign on it. These doors will only open when the switch is hit.
