High Five title screen

High Five is a multiplayer mode found in the Variety Pack of WarioWare: Get It Together!. It involves players playing a game of volleyball, trying to score points while not letting the ball's countdown reach zero.


Before the game starts, each player will choose the side (purple or orange) they want to play on. Then, a ball appears, and depending on the side it is on, the ball will either sport Wario's mustache (purple) or nose (orange). Once the ball is in play, a countdown of five will start, and once it reaches zero, or the ball touches the ground, the respective side will lose one of their six flags. When the countdown reaches three, the players have the opportunity to send back the ball with a screw attack: the closer the countdown is to zero, the more powerful the screw attack will be. The first side to lose all of their flags loses.

The countdown resets when the ball goes to the other side. Also, the longer the ball has been in play, the shorter the countdown, thus requiring gradually more rapid gameplay. Random events occur (with "WARNING!" showing up when an event is about to occur) once the ball has been in play for long enough. Events include:

  • All players change crew members.
  • Blocks appear at the top of the screen.
  • Two basketballs are dropped on each side.
  • Kitty litter from Kitty Business rains, intensifying gravity and slowing down its movement.

Events last for about ten seconds.
