Wario, Wario Land 4 instruction manual

The Golden Pyramid is a location in Wario Land 4 which was once ruled by Princess Shokora.[1] However it has been taken over by the Golden Diva, the game's main antagonist. Wario visits the pyramid deep within a jungle after he reads a newspaper article about the "legendary treasure" hidden there. In the game's intro, Wario follows a black cat to the pyramid's entrance, and he falls down a precipice in the pyramid, landing at the Entry Passage to commence the first level of the game.

The pyramid contains a Sound Room and six passages, each with a boss and either two or four levels. Switches are found before each level, which open up a vortex to transport Wario to another world away from the Golden Pyramid. Treasure chests and pieces of jewellery are recovered after defeating each boss, and these are later found with the final boss, the Golden Diva. Once she is defeated, the Golden Pyramid begins to crumble. Wario hauls the treasure in a sack and follows the black cat out of the pyramid, watching it disappear in the ground. It is then revealed that the black cat is Princess Shokora, who thanks Wario and is lifted into the sky.
