Pumped Poser is one of Jimmy T.'s microgames in WarioWare: D.I.Y. and returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Young Cricket & Master Mantis's microgames.


The game is based on the sport of bodybuilding. The point of the game is to match the bodybuilder's pose with that of the silhouette in the background. The player needs to tap the bodybuilder's arms or legs to change his pose. If the player matches the pose before time runs out, the game is won. However, if time runs out and the pose is not matched, the game ends in a loss. In WarioWare Gold, the bodybuilder's name is Bill Tanbuff.

WarioWare Gold difficulty levels[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: One body part is misaligned. Bill's head does not need to be positioned along with his arms or legs.
  • 2nd level difficulty: Two body parts are misaligned. Bill's head may need to be positioned along with his arms or legs.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Same as level 2, but three body parts are misaligned.
