Griddlebot is Jimmy T's boss microgame in WarioWare: Move It!


The player controls mechanical arms that have to rotate the food after they cook thoroughly on one side so that they don’t burn while the other side also gets cooked. Once both sides are cooked, the player can then pick up the food and put it on the plate. A stationary food item serves as a tutorial for each level of the microgame. Rotating the hands drains power from the arms. If the power for an arm is completely drained, the player will have to recharge it by dangling the appropriate Joy-Con for a second. If the player can prepare and serve all dishes they win, but if even one food item burns they lose. Once the player has achieved victory, they will be asked to dangle both Joy-Con to end the microgame.

  • Level 1: The player only has to cook steaks. After the first steak is done, the player will have to prepare five more steaks. The smaller steaks cook more quickly than the bigger ones.
  • Level 2: The player has to cook steaks and gratin. The player should not flip over the gratin or it will spill onto the conveyor belt grill and they will lose the microgame. The gratin cooks faster than the small steaks. After the first food dish is done the player has to do 8 more food dishes to win.
  • Level 3: The player has to cook steaks, gratin, pineapple slices, and a turkey. The pineapple slices cook very quickly and must be flipped over like the steaks when one side is done. The turkey takes a long time to cook and also has to be flipped over when one side is done. After preparing the first dish, the player must finish 10 more food dishes to achieve victory.

In multiplayer, each player has a set of mechanical arms, and the shape of the conveyor belt is changed to resemble that of a sideways B. The number of additional dishes to make after each player completes their stationary food item in each level increases to 7, 10, and 14 dishes, respectively.

  • The reason the player must dangle a Joy-Con to recharge an arm or end the microgame is that the wrist straps for the Joy-Con gradually get more twisted with each flip. Dangling the Joy-Con allows the straps to straighten again, similar to the purpose of Bungii! and how it always appears after BYOM or All Wound Up in WarioWare: Smooth Moves.
