Hunky-Dory is one of Dr. Crygor, Penny, and Mike's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!. The name refers to the phrase "hunky-dory", slang for "okay", "fine", "satisfactory" and the word "hunk", referring to a well-toned man.


The player controls a man holding a barbell, who must lift it by bending his elbows backwards, and then raising it above his head, following the example of a lucha libre wrestler. When the man successfully lifts the barbell, he celebrates with confetti showering him, while the wrestler flexes.

  • Level 1: The barbell has one medium-sized weight on each end, and the man is wearing a tank top and shorts. When lifted, the wrestler lifts it repeatedly.
  • Level 2: The barbell has three medium-sized weights on each end, and the man is wearing a tracksuit. When lifted, the wrestler lifts it with one arm.
  • Level 3: The barbell has three huge weights on each end, and the man is wearing a leotard. When lifted, the wrestler spins the barbell on his finger.
