Smack! (second phase)
Knock back! (final phase)
|Info||"Go easy on me, and you'll take a hit from one of my suckers! What? You brought hammers?! Then I'll throw in some electric eels for ya! Bwahahaha!"|
The player is holding two inflatable mallets in their hands. The object of the microgame is to defeat the giant inflatable Wario octopus. First, the player must smack the Wario octopus' tentacles as they pop up out of the whirlpools while making sure to avoid whacking the electric eel that pops up occasionally, or else the screen will be electrocuted, resulting in a loss. After all of the tentacles are dealt with, the Wario octopus pops up closer to the player and starts drinking the water, and the player must repeatedly smack it to knock it back and daze it for a bit, rubber ducks circling around its head. Finally, the player must deflect the cannonballs it shoots out of its mouth to sink it once and for all. If a tentacle hits the screen before it's whacked, the Wario octopus spits water at the screen before being smacked enough times, or a cannonball hits the screen, the screen cracks and the player loses.
- Level 1: The Wario octopus is pink. The player must deal with four tentacles, with the electric eel popping up once. In the second phase, not much smacking is needed. At the end, the player must deflect one cannonball.
- Level 2: The Wario octopus is green with small purple horns. The player must deal with six tentacles, with the electric eel popping up more. The Wario octopus also occasionally retracts its tentacles back into the whirlpools briefly. In the second phase, a bit more smacking is needed. At the end, the player must deflect two cannonballs fired simultaneously.
- Level 3: The Wario octopus is black and red with large horns. The player must deal with eight tentacles, with the electric eel popping up even more frequently, and the Wario octopus also retracting its tentacles more often. In the second phase, a lot of smacking is needed. At the end, the player must deflect four cannonballs fired one after the other.
In multiplayer, the players are side-by-side, with the first player holding blue mallets while the second player holds red mallets. Each level has two extra tentacles at the start, and double the smacking is required in the second phase. The number of cannonballs in Levels 1 and 2 is also doubled, with the cannonballs split evenly between both players.
