Manager Joe is a dog businessman from the WarioWare series and Mona's employer. He originally owned the Gelateria as Gelato Joe, but would later replace it with Mona Pizza, which he ran under the name Pizza Joe.

Manager Joe makes a minor appearance in the Mona Pizza souvenir in WarioWare: Touched!

In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Manager Joe 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 animals in Young Cricket and Master Mantis' 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.[1]

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 in the beginning of Mona's stage as the cameraman.

Joe is featured more extensively in Shutter, Mona's minigame in Game & Wario, going by the title of Editor Joe. 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.
