Power Struggle is one of Young Cricket and Master Mantis' microgames in WarioWare: Move It! It is based on Japanese superhero shows, such as Ultraman.


The player controls a warrior who fires a beam at an enemy who also fires back at him. The game is won either by blocking the beam long enough until the timer runs out, or using the beam to hit the enemy, which causes the warrior to cheer. If the player takes too much damage, the game is lost.

  • Level 1: The player only needs to block the beam for a few seconds. The enemy barely moves.
  • Level 2: The player needs to block the beam for more seconds. The enemy moves a bit more.
  • Level 3: The player needs to block the beam for even more seconds. The enemy moves a fair bit.
