Shantae NAB! is a downloadable microgame in WarioWare: D.I.Y. and WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase. It was released in America on April 19, 2010 and Europe on June 4, 2010. It was made by Matt Bozon, and is a Big Name Game. The microgame is based on Shantae, a franchise developed by WayForward.


The game starts off with the series' protagonist, Shantae, in her Monkey form climbing up and down a tree. There is a gem bouncing on the ground in front of the tree. The objective of the game is for the player to get the gem, so that Shantae will get back to normal form and win the game. If Shantae misses the gem, the game automatically ends in a loss.


  • If Shantae gets the gem while halfway outside of the play area, she will do her victory dance, but it will count as a loss.[1]
  • In the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS retail versions of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, there is a mini game called "Super Shantae Nab!!", which is an endless version of this microgame with some differences, such as having a second tree, Bats to interfere, more areas to play on, and the gem being on a set pattern instead of bouncing everywhere.
