Poobah the Pharaoh's Pyramid
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Poobah the Pharaoh's Pyramid is the setting of the fifth episode of Wario: Master of Disguise; the spirit of Poobah the Pharaoh lives here. Wario and Goodstyle came here searching for a piece of the Wishstone after the writing on a different piece found in Sneezemore Cave seemed to imply that it was here.
This pyramid has many secrets. Prominent features include invisible doors that can only be seen and used by Genius Wario and unlit torches that Dragon Wario can light to trigger the appearance of hidden doors, platforms, and passages that even Genius Wario cannot see. There are also many dark rooms in the pyramid, requiring Sparky Wario to see in them.
5,000 years ago, the Pharaoh called upon a demon for a wish. However, the wish came at a cost: he had to starve his people. Poobah agreed, but the demon did not uphold her end of the bargain and instead stole everything from him, crumbled his kingdom to dust, transformed his palace into a pyramid, and buried the Pharaoh along with his pyramid under the desert sand. Poobah's spirit continued to live on inside his pyramid.
Episode 5: Picking the Pharaoh's Brains!
Wario comes to the pyramid searching for the third piece of the Wishstone. However, his progress is halted as soon as he enters the first room of the pyramid due to there being no way to continue. Goodstyle notices that there are three torches in the room, one of which isn't lit. Wario figures out that he needs to light the third torch to make a ladder appear, introducing one of the pyramid's main mechanics.
Wario gets an upgrade for his Genius Wario transformation, which gives him an extending boxing glove, allowing him to break certain walls. He eventually comes to a door which requires a Royal Flail to open; Wario finds the flail and unlocks the door.
Wario eventually reaches the bottom of the pyramid and almost gets to the Pharaoh's room, but the royal gatekeeper will only let him pass if he can find two royal medallions. He finds them, and the gatekeeper lets him through, but before Wario enters the Pharaoh's room, Count Cannoli shows up. He tries to take Goodstyle back, but Wario just jumps on Cannoli, injuring him. Wario leaves Cannoli behind and goes to see the Pharaoh.
Upon meeting the Pharaoh, Wario and Goodstyle ask him about the Wishstone, but the Pharaoh wishes to test Wario's worth first and challenges him to a battle. Wario wins, but the Pharaoh reveals that the Wishstone piece is not inside the pyramid at all. He tells Wario that if anyone find the Wishstone piece, it's him, then teleports him away.
Meanwhile, Cannoli starts to lose hope because of his continuous failures and considers giving up entirely, but a mysterious voice speaks to him and tells him that he can help him get revenge on Wario if he does exactly as he says. Cannoli agrees and forms an alliance with the unseen person.
