Matryoshka is a microgame in 9-Volt and 18-Volt's mode in Game & Wario, Gamer. It can also be played individually as a Cluck-A-Pop souvenir, titled BALLOON FIGHTER: Matryoshka.


The goal is to take all the matryoshka dolls apart. In the third level, the object changes to putting them together.

  • 1st level difficulty: The player must separate five dolls.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The player must separate seven dolls by unzipping their coats.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The player must nest eight dolls. The dolls' designs cause the illusion of a single matryoshka running towards the screen, with the last one celebrating victory as it makes it to the finish line tape.
