Road Wario is Kat & Ana's Boss microgame in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, where it is known as Driver's Ed, and Wario's Twist League Boss microgame in WarioWare Gold, where it features Wario driving the Wario Car. Its name in Gold is a play on the term "road warrior".


The objective of the microgame is to drive to the finish line by tilting the Wii Remote or the Nintendo 3DS system like a steering wheel. The driver however, is surrounded by large forests and trees, so it is vital to stay on the road at all times. Animals, such as cows, monkeys, and birds can also be found on the road, but they run away shortly before the player passes through them, therefore providing a mere distraction. If the player is to hit any tree, their car will crash (with the text "Totalled..." appearing in International versions and "Failure..." appearing in Japanese versions) and the game will end in a loss. If the player makes it to the end of the track safely, the driver will give the rear view mirror a thumbs-up (with the text, "Good job!" appearing) and the player will win.

  • 1st level difficulty: The track is not as long and does not have many turns. The car is blue in Smooth Moves.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The track is a little longer, having more animals and turns. The car is yellow in Smooth Moves.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The track is at its longest point with several animals to distract the player, as well as lots of sharp turns. The car is red in Smooth Moves.

In WarioWare Gold, the top screen shows a top-down view of the road. Also, there is no text appearing if the player wins or loses.
