King Dragon Wario[1] is a form Wario takes after finding both an Eagle Statue, which looks like a sparkling eagle statue with a handle on the back, and a Dragon Crystal, which looks like a dragon claw holding out a flame, in the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. While in this form, Wario wears a hat shaped like a blue dragon's head with wings, allowing him to fly very far, normally to the end of the screen. Wario is very heavy in this form, and it is difficult to get out of quicksand. In this form, Wario's Body Slam resembles a Ground Pound from later Wario Land games. Wario cannot Barge in this form; however, he can shoot a flame projectile which will often continue until it reaches the end of the screen, regardless of obstacles.

Despite needing two power-ups for this form, both the required power-ups are fairly common, meaning this form is often not hard to obtain.
