Great Cleave is one of Kat & Ana's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!


The player controls a knight and must swing a sword to protect a princess from an apple monster. If the player swings and misses, the knight will attempt to pull the sword from the ground in attempt to get another swing. When done so successfully, the apple monster explodes and both the knight and princess cheer. If the player fails, the monster punches the knight and the princess faints.

  • Level 1: The player must slay a green apple monster who will only pop out.
  • Level 2: The player must slay a red apple monster. A regular apple will pop out first to fake-out the player before the monster appears.
  • Level 3: The player must slay a purple apple monster. A regular apple will pop out and a barrel is thrown in front to fake-out the player before the monster appears.

In multiplayer, both players, who respectively control a blue knight and an orange knight, will need to defeat their respective apple monsters. If only one player defeats their monster, their knight will look toward the other player's knight in confusion and then fall in despair.


  • The princess' design bears a heavy resemblance to Princess Shokora's "young princess" appearance, with an outfit and red hair that match those that she wears in Wario Land 4.
