Short Fuse is a microgame found in WarioWare: Touched! in the Super Zero stage and returns as one of Wario Deluxe's microgames in WarioWare Gold.


The objective is to cut the wire that is told on the Top Screen. If the player does not cut said wire in time or cuts the wrong wire, the bomb explodes. In WarioWare Gold, the timer will turn into a thumbs up sign if the game is won.

  • 1st level difficulty: One wire has to be cut from three wires.
  • 2nd level difficulty: Two wires have to be cut from four wires.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Two wires have to be cut from six wires.
