Jimmy Thang, more commonly known as Jimmy T (abbreviated as Jimmy T. prior to Game & Wario), is a major human character in the WarioWare series. He first appeared as one of WarioWare, Inc.'s employees in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. He is an obsessive disco-dancer with a blue afro wig and a mustache that resembles musical notes. He enjoys dancing at nightclubs, particularly Club Sugar. His relatives, including his parents and siblings, all share his passion for dancing.


WarioWare series[edit]

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$![edit]

Jimmy T. congratulating the player after beating his stage in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!

Jimmy is first seen in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!'s intro, called by Wario to join his "company", WarioWare, Inc., and to produce microgames for his upcoming game. Alongside Wario's other friends, he agrees.

In his own story, Jimmy frequents a dance club called Club Sugar. There, he dances to disco music and takes out his ringing cell phone. When the show is over, he leaves the club walking past people, using his cell phone to listen to another ringtone, this time a dog's barking. After, he approaches the Gelateria and stands behind the second-story window.

In addition to his story, Jimmy hosts two remix stages. The first stage contains the microgames of Dribble and Spitz, Mona, and 9-Volt. The second stage contains the microgames of Orbulon, Dr. Crygor, Kat, and Ana. He has a yellow and red afro in those stages respectively.

Jimmy makes a short appearance in the game's ending story. In the WarioWare headquarters, Wario runs off with the profits made from the game after he is called out on hoarding it. Jimmy is shocked but does not chase after him. He later watches as Wario plummets to the ocean.

Jimmy T. is featured in three unlockable minigames. A tiny Jimmy appears in the two-player minigame VS Chiritorie. At random intervals, he wanders around the screen. If he is sucked up, he clogs the vacuum cleaner and causes it to spit out wads of paper, including a giant one worth five. Fly Swatter features Jimmy in the congratulation sequence. In Paper Plane, Jimmy is the first character to appear outside of a window. He states the amount of time it took for the paper plane to reach that point.

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$![edit]

Jimmy's girlfriend gives him the choice

In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, it is revealed that he had a girlfriend, who dumped him because she thought that he enjoyed dancing more than spending time with her. In Club Sugar, she asks him if he liked her or dancing more. Shortly afterwards, Jimmy starts to dance, causing the woman to leave. Jimmy bursts into tears and claims that the rhythm made him do it.

He and the rest of the WarioWare Inc. employees are at the restaurant Sora Sora during the cast roll.

Jimmy T. hosts the multiplayer mode Survival Fever. He is also one of the ten selectable characters in multiplayer games. His afro, jacket, and shoes are tinted in the player's color.

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

Jimmy's parents, Papa and Mama T., are introduced in WarioWare: Twisted!. They dance along with their son at Club Sugar. While the family are still on the dance floor, Sugar, the club owner, tells the Thangs that the dinner they ordered is ready. However, instead of eating, Jimmy's parents take pictures of him holding up utensils using their cellphones. Annoyed, Sugar says that their dinner is getting cold, and he finally tells Jimmy and his parents to leave Club Sugar and closes the club. He later dances with the other WarioWare, Inc. employees.

He and Fronk are the only employees in this game who do not appear in Wario-Man's ending.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

In WarioWare: Touched!, a speaker announces "Jimmy's Showtime" at Club Sugar. Jimmy appears on the dance floor as usual and receives the applause of the public. He then summons his parents and his younger siblings Jamie and James T. onto the dance floor. The family starts to dance, but Scratchy the 'Fro Bug flies through Club Sugar and lands right into Jimmy's wig. This causes Jimmy's afro to itch and he starts to move erratically. However, the other Thangs think that Jimmy's moves are just another dance. After scratching the bug out of his wig, Jimmy continues dancing with his family. During gameplay, they all look at Jimmy's cellphone. They laugh when the player clears a microgame and grimace when the player fails.

After the show ends, the Thang family walk through the streets of Diamond City. Scratchy, now with a bandage on its head, reappears and flies into Jimmy's wig, causing him to move hectically again. Once again, his family thinks that he is just dancing. He later walks to the Hawt House and dances there.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves[edit]

Jimmy and the Legendary Cat Dancers dancing at Club Sugar

In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Jimmy walks down to Club Sugar with an umbrella on a rainy night. While he is walking, he sees a soaked cat, and decides to give the cat his umbrella. This act causes the Legendary Cat Dancers to follow Jimmy and imitate his dance movements. Jimmy and the cats start to dance and continue to dance once they reach Club Sugar.

After their dance is finished, the cats walk out, each saying "meow." In the end, the pitied cat gives the umbrella back to Jimmy, earning a smile from him.

At the end of Jimmy P.'s story, Jimmy T. pats on Jimmy P.'s shoulder, leading to the two of them facing each other. At the end of Tiny Wario's story, he is seen walking while Wario is chased by some Splunks.

WarioWare: Snapped![edit]

In WarioWare: Snapped!, Jimmy T. runs the newly opened Wario Park along with Wario, Mona, Kat, and Ana.

WarioWare: D.I.Y.[edit]

Jimmy stars in his own aerobics TV show called Jimmy's Aerobics in WarioWare: D.I.Y., where he is seen doing aerobics along with two women in the background. In this game, it is revealed that, along with Mona, Ashley, Orbulon, and 9-Volt, Jimmy T. had left WarioWare, Inc. and now works for Diamond Software.

Jimmy T reappears in WarioWare Gold. In his story, Jimmy walks down Sapphire Street and approaches a cat who then takes refuge in his hair. After, he runs into Amy and Mimi and ask if they can take pictures. They take many pictures of him as the night goes by. When they are done, they show him the "best" picture, which happens to be of the cat. Jimmy is initially shocked but shrugs it off.

During the Dancing Team set of the Ultra League, Jimmy T arrives with Mona, Dr. Crygor, Mike, Fronk, Young Cricket and Master Mantis, Kat, Ana, and Penny to assist Joe in filling up his new nightclub, Club Joe. He is seen dancing with the rest of the group.

In his character trailer, he, the cat, Amy, and Mimi stand in the room from Love Rap 2 from Rhythm Heaven Fever as a speaker announces that it is "Jimmy's Showtime".

The intro to his stage depicts Jimmy leading Joe, Lulu, Young Cricket, and Master Mantis in an aerobics performance in front of a crowd at Feelin' Groovy Fitness.

Nintendo Badge Arcade[edit]

Jimmy as Skull Kid

As with most of the series cast, Jimmy is featured as one of the collectables in the WarioWare set of Nintendo Badge Arcade.

Jimmy is also featured in a set of badges parodying The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The set has Jimmy dressed as Skull Kid.


Jimmy T comes with his own set of microgames in all games of the WarioWare series, except for WarioWare: Smooth Moves.

For WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, Jimmy created microgames of the Sports genre. As its name implies, all games involve some kind of sport. He also provides two remixes, meaning that he provides mixes of the microgames of other characters. WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$! does also feature Jimmy's sports microgames, plus a multiplayer game made by him, Survival Fever. Instead of sports, it features Jimmy's favorite activity, dancing.

Jimmy's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted!, involve a particular style of gameplay rather than a specific visual theme, which was also continued for the next games in the series until WarioWare: D.I.Y.. In this game, his set of microgames is called Big Tipper and requires large spins.

In WarioWare: Touched!, the name of Jimmy's set of microgames is Dance Club Rub and involves rubbing with the Stylus.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves is the only game where he does not have any unique microgames. Instead, he along with Jimmy P. provides a mix of microgames of other characters. The games start at Level 2 instead of Level 1.

Jimmy's five microgames in WarioWare: Snapped! require the player's acting skills. He puts photos taken of the player into a comic strip after the end of his stage.

In WarioWare: D.I.Y., Jimmy returns to his original role and hosts a set of new Sports microgames.

In WarioWare Gold, he once again hosts Sports microgames, this time in the Mash League.
