“The legendary game returns! Control the starving Pyoro, and stretch out its infamously long tongue to catch beans falling from the sky.”
In-game description, WarioWare Gold

Pyoro is a secret minigame in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, unlocked once all microgames are encountered and unlocked for free play. It also appears in WarioWare Gold in the game's Toy Room. In it, the player controls Pyoro, a small, red, bird creature, while several vegetables (referred to as "veggies" in Mega MicroGame$!) fall from the sky. The goal is to eat as many of the vegetables as possible by grabbing them with Pyoro's extremely long tongue. A slightly updated version of this minigame with an extended playing area is included in the DSiWare game Bird & Beans, while a version with a 16:9 playing area and different graphical styles is included in Game & Wario as Bird.

A sequel of this minigame, Pyoro 2 appears in Mega Microgame$! and Bird & Beans.

Gameplay[edit]

Pyoro can extend his tongue by holding on A Button, until it reaches the end of the screen or a vegetable is caught. The player can also let go of A Button to cancel the tongue action early. The player can receive either 10, 50, 100, 300 or 1000 points depending on how high the vegetable was when caught by Pyoro's tongue. If a vegetable hits the ground before being eaten, it destroys the block of floor that it landed on (if any), giving Pyoro less room to move around. If Pyoro himself is hit by a falling vegetable, the game ends. The game will speed up (e.g. Pyoro can extend his tongue faster) as more time is passed and more points are earned. A maximum of 16 beans can spawn at once.

Types of vegetables[edit]

Image Name Description
A falling green bean Vegetable This is the regular vegetable that has an 8/9 chance of spawning with no secondary effect.
A falling white bean White vegetable This has a 1/9 chance of spawning and once eaten, a Tenshi appears and returns the nearest lost block of floor.
A falling flashing bean Flashing vegetable This spawns instead of the other 2 vegetables when the player reaches 5,000 or 7,000 points, and every multiple of 1,000 points starting at 9,000 points. When eaten, all the other airborne vegetables are destroyed, which rewards the player 50 points each and up to 10 Tenshi can appear to restore the nearest blocks like the white vegetable.

List of point bonuses in Gold[edit]

As in Mega Microgame$!, the cityscape gradually shows up as the score racks up, and shooting stars are seen from 11,000 and up, but in Gold, the game starts at daytime and gradually sets to nighttime. The visual effects from 20,000 and up in Mega Microgame$! also do not show up in Gold. In order for a new high score to be saved, the player must exit Pyoro and go back to the Toy Room Minigames menu.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Gold, if a flashing vegetable is collected with the tongue just as another vegetable hits Pyoro's head, the flashing vegetable will be shown blinking on the left of the Start option on the Start/Exit menu. Additionally if the player selects Start while the glitch is in effect, the flashing vegetable will be shown in the middle of Pyoro's body until the first vegetable has been eaten in the new game.
