Orbulon's UFO
“Steering this ship wiped me out...”
Orbulon, WarioWare: Twisted!

The Oinker[1][2], originally known as Orbulon's UFO[3], is Orbulon's spaceship. It is named as such because of its resemblance to a pig. It often crash lands due to unexpected situations.

History[edit]

WarioWare series[edit]

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$![edit]

In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, Orbulon evacuates the UFO after it gets hit by an asteroid. He runs down a corridor and stops at an elevator. After some Space Hares notice the distress signal, they lower their own elevator into the UFO to rescue Orbulon. Upon seeing him, they drop the elevator cab back into the UFO, causing it to hurtle towards the Gelateria in Diamond City. At the Gelateria, Orbulon repeatedly pops out of the UFO. The interior is mainly white with some circular windows and red warning lights.

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$![edit]

In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, Orbulon takes Dribble and Spitz away in his UFO after their taxi reach "the farthest reaches of outer space". After the taxi lands in the UFO, Orbulon then makes them his underlings. The UFO then gets barraged by asteroids, causing it to land into the bathroom of Dr. Crygor's Lab.

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

The interior of the UFO

In WarioWare: Twisted!, Orbulon is relaxing in the UFO, when he asks for one of his Alien Bunny minions to rub his shoulders. Shortly afterward, he and the Space Bunnies piloting the ship fall asleep. Unfortunately for them, the ship flies near a black hole. Orbulon quickly attempts to activate Warp Mode, but finds that he has forgotten the password. Luckily, he manages to remember the password, and the UFO is warped away from the black hole just in time. After warping away, Orbulon attempts to rest on a nearby planetoid only for it to open its mouth and eat the UFO. It attempts to chew it and spits the ship out. This time, the UFO lands near Club Sugar.

In Wario-Man's story, Orbulon pilots a yellow UFO marked with a "2" with Mona, 9-Volt, 18-Volt, and Kat & Ana, and shoots the transformed Wario-Man down, mistaking him for an enemy.

In the mini-game Batting Practice, Orbulon briefly shows up in the UFO when the player scores five home runs.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

In WarioWare: Touched!, Orbulon's Oinker appears under its current name. Whenever a stage is completed, or when the player beats one of the default high-scores for the minigames, it can be tapped in the games area for a souvenir. While a souvenir is still in the Oinker, Orbulon pops his head out. When it is emptied of all the souvenirs, he goes back inside. It may also fly over Diamond City in the story mode. During Ashley and Red's story, the Oinker flies over Ashley's Mansion and gets struck by lightning. It ejects Orbulon and flies away. The Oinker can be seen briefly in the world map shortly after it shows the Hardcore Mix Building during Wario's storyline. It even has a purple dot indicating its location on the map on the touch screen, hinting that Orbulon was going to have a story and a set of microgames for himself, but was scrapped.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves[edit]

In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, the Oinker floats through outer space and gets hit by the Balance Stone. It crashes into the Temple of Form. After raising the temple into space and claiming it as a ship in his name, Orbulon is attacked by a group of Splunks. The temple falls back to its place and the Oinker is launched out. On the map, Orbulon inspects the crashed Oinker and pulls out a device, only for it to explode in his hand.

WarioWare: D.I.Y.[edit]

In WarioWare: D.I.Y., the Oinker gets struck by lightning and makes Orbulon fall into the rocket below.

Game & Wario[edit]

The Oinker makes an appearance in Game & Wario in the opening cutscene. It crashes into the television featuring the new console. It appears again when the player beats a level of Bowling.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

Little Hammies on the Oinker

In WarioWare Gold, the Oinker appears in Wario's photo of all his friends and when Wario calls Orbulon to make microgames. During Orbulon's story, he rides it through the drive-through at Gigantaburger. During gameplay, Orbulon flies above a farm looking for Little Hammies. Successfully beating a microgame causes a Little Hammy to be abducted into the Oinker. Failing a microgame causes the Oinker to malfunction. At the potluck at the Peridot Campgrounds and Diamond City Stadium when the others demand their pay, Orbulon continues to be in the Oinker. In the cast roll, Orbulon is in the Oinker, holding a Little Hammy near Gigantaburger.

WarioWare: Get It Together![edit]

In WarioWare: Get It Together!, Orbulon flies around in his Oinker. If the player presses A Button, the tractor beam activates. In microgames, some objects are completely absorbed by the beam while others are held in place. When Orbulon attempts to attract the corruption caused by a game bug, it fails to pull it up. In the intro to Wario's level, Orbulon flies in his Oinker before getting knocked away by a large object shaped like Wario's nose and mustache. In the intro to Orbulon's level, he warps to Goro Desert, Takechiko City, and Ohlaka Island and abducts several items from each location. After taking the items at each location, the Oinker increases in size, suggesting its previous inconsistent size is a result of this ability.
