WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!
In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, Joe owns the Gelateria as Gelato Joe and works alongside Mona. In Mona's story, he is the first to arrive at the Gelateria. He brings out the gelato sculpture and opens the restaurant. When Mona barely reaches the Gelateria in time, Joe congratulates her with some confetti.
In WarioWare: Twisted!, he goes by Pizza Joe and now runs Mona Pizza. When Mona is attacked by the Dinosaurs while delivering pizza, Joe flies in with a plane and places the Yum Yums onto her head. In the Telephone souvenir, he reveals that he is the only working dog in his family except for a cousin who works with the blind. In addition, he is the manager at Mona Pizza because he is trusted not to eat the pizzas.
WarioWare: Smooth Moves
In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, he goes by Manager Joe and is in Mona's story, as usual, this time along with Ken the Reporter as an announcer of the Diamond City Roughs match against the Dinosaurs. Joe later appears working at a dumpling stand with Mona and her pets in Young Cricket & Master Mantis's story. The Japanese website for Smooth Moves shows that he is also the curator of the Temple of Form and the original owner of the entire area where it is located.
According to the D.I.Y. Forums in WarioWare: D.I.Y., Manager Joe runs Diamond Software, the company that provides the game's pre-made microgames and was created when Wario's staff left WarioWare, Inc. Also in WarioWare: D.I.Y., Manager Joe can be seen at the beginning of Mona's stage as the cameraman.
Game & Wario
Editor Joe is featured extensively in Shutter, Mona's minigame in Game & Wario. He is the editor of the Diamond City Times newspaper and asks Mona to catch suspects on camera, giving the player instructions and evaluating the photographs sent to him.
Joe appears during Mona's story in WarioWare Gold as the owner of Joe's Clothes, where he helps Mona choose an outfit for a party she is hosting. After finding the outfit she wants, Mona invites Joe to the party, only to then leave on her scooter in a rush before Joe can get her to help him decide what he should wear. He is later seen in the first stage of the Ultra League as the owner of a nightclub, Club Joe. As Joe is cleaning, he is about to close the club early due to it being empty, but he is interrupted by the arrival of Jimmy T, Mona, Dr. Crygor, Penny, Kat, Ana, Mike, Fronk, Young Cricket, and Master Mantis, all of whom help attract people to the club, to Joe's bewilderment.
WarioWare: Get It Together!
Joe appears during Jimmy T's story in WarioWare: Get It Together!. He participates in Jimmy T's workout program alongside Lulu, Young Cricket, and Master Mantis at Feelin' Groovy Fitness. Though his solo performance in front of the Club Goers is met with tepid reactions, Jimmy T jumps in and leads the group in a more enthusiastic workout, much to the Club Goers' enjoyment. In his gallery, it is hinted that he owns the Café in the Rhythm Heaven games.
WarioWare: Move It!
Joe appears during Mona's story, "Mermaid Meet and Greet", in WarioWare: Move It!. When Mona realizes she could meet mermaids in the ocean of Caresaway Island, she calls Joe for a favor. Joe arrives at the seaside flying a plane, with Mona catching onto its rope ladder. Aboard the plane, Mona prepares scuba gear while Joe flies above the drop point, where Mona proceeds to jump into the ocean. Although Joe does not appear again in the story, his plane can be seen on the level select map flying above the island.
