Punch Out is Jimmy T's boss game in the Sports folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. It later returns as his boss game in WarioWare Gold. The name of the microgame and the entire game itself is a reference to the Punch-Out!! series.

The third level of the microgames Button Masher and Famicom in WarioWare: Touched! is based on this microgame.


The setting for this microgame is a boxing match. The player controls one of the boxers and must defeat their opponent. The only way to do this is to wait for the opponent to attack, then dodge with the control pad. Then, they must press the A Button button to punch, which depletes one point of health from the opponent if done right. Both this and Dungeon Dilemma are the only boss microgames that never speed up.

  • 1st level difficulty: Features an opponent with fair skin wearing a green hood with ears, green gloves, green shorts, and green shoes that is about equal to the player, both having three points of health and equal strength.
  • 2nd level difficulty: Features an opponent with pale skin wearing a blue mask, yellow gloves, blue shorts, and yellow shoes that has four points of health. Once he is down to a single point, he will perform a special move, which can instantly K.O. the player but can be dodged like a normal attack.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Features an opponent with dark skin wearing a yellow VR headset with black lens and black antennas, gray gloves, purple shorts, and gray shoes that has five health points, who is much faster than the other two. Also, this opponent can use the instant K.O. attack at any time. Like the opponent in level two, he always uses the instant K.O. attack once he is down to a single point.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

All opponents now have only three health points. Moreover, new characters serve as opponents. The top screen displays their names, titles and portraits, as well as pieces of trivia about each.

  • The first opponent is "The Eye Stinger" known as Lee Kasoop, a man wearing a leek hat.
  • The second opponent is "The Musher", Fun Gus, a man wearing a hat resembling a shiitake cap, who sports scars on his chest and arms.
  • The third opponent is "Red Typhoon", or Gaz Puncho, an overweight man wearing a tomato mask.
