Ladybug (known as Ladybird in the British English version) is the first microgame the player makes in WarioWare: D.I.Y. in the D.I.Y. 101 section of the game. Penny and Wario teach the player the fundamentals of making a microgame with this game first.
The player has to tap the ladybug with a stylus to make it move, resulting in a win. If the player fails to tap the ladybug, they instantly fail.
The lesson consists of 6 steps:

- Step 3: Drawing an object!
- The player is taught how to draw objects and their cels, creating art.
- Step 4: Making music!
