Self-Defense is one of Jimmy T's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! and returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Dr. Crygor's microgames. There is a souvenir based on this game known as Pillow Fight.


The gameplay involves a boy with orange hair in a karate outfit (black belt), who, in WarioWare Gold, is much older and now a karate master[1] (also appearing in Goal in One). The player must tilt the system to deflect the upcoming objects. In Twisted!, the objects are baseballs, basketballs, watermelons, and knives. In Gold, the objects are random. If the player is hit by these objects, they lose.

  • 1st level difficulty: The player must deflect two objects.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The player must deflect three objects.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The player must deflect four objects.
