Fronks, also referred to as mini Fronks,[1] are small creatures from the WarioWare series. They appear in many colors besides the most common color, yellow. They appear in various microgames in every installment of the series. The most prominent of the Fronks is 9-Volt's pet, Fronk.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

Fronks have their own microgame in WarioWare: Touched! called Tread Carefully. It only appears whenever the players play a microgame or a stage that involves blowing into the microphone. The players must not blow until the microgame is over. If they do so, the microgame is won. However, if the players blow in the microphone at all, the Fronks fall and the player loses the microgame. In the Album, this microgame is played after the main microphone microgame is played 5 times. This also applies to the boss microgame, Seedy Area.

Fronks have their own multiplayer game in Game & Wario called Islands. In this game, two or more players take turns shooting different colored Fronks on a spinning island. This spinning island is marked with several different sections. The section the Fronk lands on determines the player's score. After five turns, the person with the most points is declared the winner.

A yellow Fronk is also featured in some of the other minigames. In Shutter, taking a photo of him gets 200 points. He appears in a Sole Man remake in Gamer, as well as Allergy Attack. In Taxi, he floats by on a yellow balloon, which can be shot. Should he be taken to the shelter, the player gets 500 points.

According to the "Mona Superscoop 21" souvenir, there's a proverb saying "If you see one Fronk, there are probably at least 30 more lurking around nearby", referring to various cameos they make in the game.
