Pyoro, about his minigame Bird in Game & Wario

Pyoro is a recurring bird character in the WarioWare series. Pyoro stars in a series of successful video games and is the inspiration for Wario getting into game development, as the intro to WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! shows Wario starting up WarioWare, Inc. after seeing a news report on the success of Pyoro's game. His name and design are a parody of Kyorochan, the mascot of the Japanese chocolate brand Choco-Ball.

He is playable in his own minigames in nearly every WarioWare game, most of which can be unlocked by playing every microgame at least once. He has quite a few abilities, including being able to extend his tongue (similar to Yoshi), shoot seeds at fast speeds, and stretch his beak. Although Pyoro was originally considered flightless, it is shown in WarioWare: Smooth Moves that he can fly. Pyoro must dispose of various falling beans either by eating them or shooting seeds at them or fend off evil insects that want to destroy Pyoro's flowers, home, etc.

Pyoro's color is primarily red in all WarioWare games, with the exception of Pyoro 2, where he is yellow. He also appears in yellow and green in the "Change Hands" and "Erase Data" options, respectively, in the Options menu in WarioWare Touched! In WarioWare: Get It Together!, Pyoro can be customized to change into different colors in the Break Room.

There appears to be more than one of Pyoro's species, as a power-up in WarioWare: Smooth Moves adds smaller "Pyoros" as backup.

History[edit]

WarioWare series[edit]

Pyoro's games take advantage of the system on which they are played. For example, Pyoro S on WarioWare: Smooth Moves is used with the Wii Remote, and Pyoro T on WarioWare: Touched! is used with the touch screen. Besides being a game producer, Pyoro is also in charge of the Prize Machine in WarioWare: Twisted! Pyoro also has his own game for the Nintendo DSi's DSiWare channel, Bird & Beans. On the town bulletin board in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, he is referred to as "P".

In the WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and WarioWare Gold microgame Jumpin' Rope, one of the characters who jumps resembles Pyoro.

WarioWare: Get It Together![edit]

Pyoro appears in WarioWare: Get It Together! as a playable character and as the final boss in the Story mode. He first appears in the opening as the main character of a newly released game named Super Pyoro. Later on, he is briefly seen on WarioWare, Inc.'s game's screen after the crew re-enters the game to search for the missing members (Red, Master Mantis, and Lulu), having now taken the form of a large, brown monster with many eyes. The crew discovers that they were kidnapped and imprisoned in the microgame mix levels by Pyoro. After the crew saves each of them, Pyoro leaves behind a golden treasure which Penny assembles to create the Golden Watering Can, which the crew uses to grow a beanstalk that leads to Pyoro. After the crew defeats Pyoro, he turns back to normal and explains that he was interested in WarioWare, Inc.'s new game and wanted to play one with Wario. After the story ends, Pyoro becomes playable as the game's final crew member.

While controlling Pyoro, he can walk left and right, and when the player presses A Button, he launches his tongue diagonally, which ricochets off of walls and can be used to interact with items and objects. Pyoro's appearance when defeated by a hazard is from his "death" sprite from his games.

In the staff credits, the music that plays during Pyoro's portion is an arrangement of the music heard in Pyoro, Pyoro 2, PYORO R, and Pyoro S. Another variation closely resembling that of the first Pyoro game is also slightly audible when Super Pyoro is shown in the game's opening.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Pyoro makes a cameo appearance in the background of the Gamer stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, where there is a chance he appears as part of the stage in his "claymation" form from Game & Wario walking back and forth. He can be used to hide from 5-Volt.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Pyoro appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an Advanced-type support spirit that takes up one support slot when used. It provides the player with a Mr. Saturn at the start of a battle. In World of Light, the spirit is located in the northern region of the Dark Realm. The spirit's battle has a red Yoshi as an opponent on the Battlefield form of the Balloon Fight stage.
