Mug Shot is one of Wario's microgames in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, found in the Introduction folder and returns as one of Wario Deluxe's microgames in WarioWare Gold.


In this microgame, Wario has to catch his mug while it is sliding across the table. In WarioWare Gold, sometimes a mushroom has to be caught instead of a mug.

  • 1st level of difficulty: The mug always comes from the left.
  • 2nd level of difficulty: The mug may appear from the opposite direction.
  • 3rd level of difficulty: Two mugs may come in opposite directions; one will come and stop and suddenly another mug appears from the opposite direction, which has to be caught.
