“Somebody! Give me some tissues! It’s not that I need to go to the bathroom or anything, but a lump of snow just fell from the ceiling, and I’ve become a big snowman! Now my nose is running like crazy! What’ll Nintendo do if their BIG STAR gets a cold?!”

Snowman Wario in Wario Land 4

Snowman Wario is one of Wario's many transformations in the Wario Land series of games. It is triggered by having a snowdrift fall on Wario's head. He is then covered in snow, disabling his running and jumping capabilities (he can still jump in Wario Land: Shake It!), but allowing him to defeat baddies when he touches them. Also, if he steps on a slope, he will turn into an uncontrollable rolling snowball, able to break certain blocks and defeat any enemies he touches. When he hits a wall, he will become normal Wario. Ball o' String Wario combines this ability with Flaming Wario.
