The following is a list of the microgame sets and the included microgames in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. Each set is told to be developed by a WarioWare employee and is represented by a folder that can be selected in the game's Game and Grid mode menus. Aside from the Introduction set, they all include 25 microgames each. All microgames reappear in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!. There are a total of 213 microgames.

Intro Games[edit]

Intro Games is a set of Introduction microgames. These games are made by Wario. With only 13 microgames, it is the smallest set and features basic games that all involve Wario in some way. In Wario's first stage, the boss stage appears after nine microgames. The intermission between every microgame shows Wario's boombox with Wario inside, which is a spoof of the boombox in the Sound Bomber mode of Mario Artist: Polygon Studio, and also the sound effects loosely resemble the ones from said game. Five of the Introduction microgames are based on the Sound Bomber games, too. The intermission of this stage is also the only one seen in the Grid mode, the life counters in this stage are volume meters. If the player wins a microgame, Wario smiles, if the player loses, however, Wario is frowning. If the player loses all of their lives, the radio turns off.

The intro games can also pop up while the player is playing the Sci-Fi, Nature, and Anything Goes themed microgames. They'll start at level 1 for Sci-Fi; level 2 for Nature; level 3 for Anything Goes.

Sci-Fi games are focused on futuristic things such as aliens, space fights and superheroes. A notable number of games is also centered on ninjas and samurais. The boss stage shows up after 24 microgames in the cabbie duo's stage. A few of the Introduction games also appear in this stage. The intermission takes place inside the taxi that drives through the city while it rains. A Japanese song named Koe No Tadayō Namima Made (lit. "A Voice Drifts On The Waves") can be heard during the game. The life counters in this stage are hanging smaller versions of Spitz as decorations. When the player wins a microgame, the wipers go as normal, and the screen shakes slightly. When the player loses, the song stops abruptly for a moment, and one of the Spitz decorations fall. When the player loses all of their lives, the wipers start going slower, before fading out to the score screen. Also, games in this stage can speed up without warning, only evidenced by the song and wipers going faster, also, the song's instruments change whenever a speed up or boss stage happens.

The intermission shows the interior of the Space Hares' rescue ship where four of the aliens dance, acting as the life meter. When the player wins a microgame, the elevator raises, and the alien bunnies keep dancing. When the player loses, an alien bunny falls into a void.

Reality[edit]

Reality is the name of Dr. Crygor's genre of microgames which is playable after beating the Remix No. 1 stage.

When the player wins, the toilet flushes. When the player loses, the song becomes distorted, and one life is lost (represented by rolls of toilet paper).

A few of the Introduction games that already start on the second difficulty level can also appear in this stage. In the intermission, the player sees the interior of the Castle where one fusuma opens with each microgame. Notably, the messages and the score in this stage are displayed in Japanese, but the microgame instructions are localized in Western versions. During the stage, the Japanese song "Four Seasons" plays. When the player finishes a microgame, the door opens. If the player loses, the song is distorted and part of the Katana (The life bar) is lost.

Anything Goes[edit]

Anything Goes is the last set of microgames and is hosted by Wario again. It is unlocked by beating Jimmy's Remix No. 2 stage. Like in Wario's first set, the greedy boss himself is featured in all games in some way. Otherwise, there is no specific theme that would apply to all microgames, the set rather reuses themes from previous sets. For example, Wario squashes a photographed apple from Dr. Crygor's stage, he destroys a jar of eye drops in a microgame similar to Mona's, he has become an animal (namely a beetle) on a golf course like it was seen in one of Jimmy's games, and he even pops up in Nintendo games, such as Super Mario Land, which were released before Wario's debut. In the Anything Goes stage, it takes 24 microgames until the boss stage appears. Introduction microgames that are always on the hardest level also reappear in the stage. The intermission between the games shows the desktop metaphor of Wario's Laptop where Wario's face is displayed in a window, happy if the player wins, but sad if the player loses, also, a small Wario will go into a "Recycle Bin", if the player loses all of their lives, the words "GAME OVER" appear, before cutting to the score screen.
