Power Surge is a downloadable microgame in WarioWare: D.I.Y. and WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase. It was distributed to North American players on June 7, 2010. The game was designed by Chris Hoffman, writer and editor of the magazine Nintendo Power, making it a "Big Name Game".


The point of game is to pick the correct Nintendo Power Team (NP Team) member who is shown on the right. The player needs to tap the correct person. If the player taps the correct person, then it will show "YES!" and the game is won. However, if the player taps the wrong person, then it will show "Fool!" and the game will be lost.


  • All of the Nintendo Power Team members use edited versions of sprites from the Mega Man series. It is unknown if Chris Hoffman was given permission from Capcom for their use or if the edits were unauthorized.
