“To all Diamond City residents! We are now hiring experiment subjects! Experiments are guaranteed to be 100% not-entirely-lethal.”
Penny, WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Penny Crygor, most commonly just known as Penny, is Dr. Crygor's granddaughter. Her first appearance is in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. She admires her grandfather and wants to grow up to be a great scientist, though she also desires to become a famous singer[1]. She attends Diamond Academy.


WarioWare: Smooth Moves[edit]

One day, Penny enters a competition called the "Invent-Off" at the Diamond Academy and is put against her grandfather to see who is the best inventor. After what appeared to be a mental fight between the two, Penny pulls out her winning invention (a motorcycle) out of thin air which, for some reason, knocks Dr. Crygor down. Penny then takes one of Mike's head-mounted microphones and decided to sing a song to the cheering crowd.

Later, Penny sends her motorcycle to Wario. Wario is then sucked inside the motorcycle while using it, and is turned into Tiny Wario.

WarioWare: D.I.Y.[edit]

In WarioWare: D.I.Y., she helps the player and Wario create microgames. As such, she leads the game's tutorials. During the tutorial, she is paired up with Wario who serves as her student as well as the player. She frequently makes sarcastic quips toward Wario's intelligence and patience, though she is quick to apologize when Wario gets offended.

Game & Wario[edit]

Penny appears as the host of the multiplayer minigame Fruit, where she gives tips to the "agent" player and reacts to set pieces (such as reactivating the lights when they're turned off).

Like most of the other WarioWare developers, a bowling pin modeled after her is featured in the Bowling minigame.

As with the other WarioWare characters, Penny makes an appearance in Miiverse Sketch Masterpiece Collection, a series of video showcasing pictures of often questionable quality made in the game's Miiverse Sketch mode. Penny's video is themed after drawings of Prince Shōtoku, an important ruler in Japanese history.

Rhythm Heaven Megamix[edit]

Penny makes a cameo appearance in the Wario... Where? challenge set of Rhythm Heaven Megamix. She and Dr. Crygor appears in the background during the set's version of Fillbots, which now features Mike as one of the models of robots being filled with liquid.

Nintendo Badge Arcade[edit]

Penny as the Happy Mask Salesman.

As with most of the series cast, Penny is featured as one of the collectable in the WarioWare set of Nintendo Badge Arcade.

Penny is also featured in a set of badges parodying The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The set has Penny dressed as the Happy Mask Salesman.


  • "I started learning forms to satisfy my intellectual curiosity! I thought the Finger Food, the Boxer, and the Mortar and Pestle would be a good start for me, and now I think I'm pretty good at them! I get the feeling that this hard work will pay off in the FORM of a new invention! Hee Hee Hee!" - WarioWare: Smooth Moves
  • Wario (after being shown the Balloon POP! microgame for an art-creation tutorial): Ah, I get it! It's a balloon-popping game!
Penny: Actually, it's a present-dropping game!
Wario: Yeah, yeah. Same thing.
Penny: But... But they're not, really... -WarioWare: D.I.Y.
