Special Episode Part 3 is the third of five extra episodes unlocked after completing the final main story episode of Wario: Master of Disguise. It takes place in the Ancient Waterworks. The objective, as is the case with the other special episodes, is to obtain three treasures in order within a time limit.
Carpaccio meets Wario and Count Cannoli at the entrance to the Ancient Waterworks. He tells them that he placed parts for a new invention of his inside the ruins, but forgot exactly where he put them. He asks Wario and Cannoli to help find them for him and says he will give the invention to whoever finds them first. After obtaining all of them, Wario brings them to Carpaccio, only for the "invention" to turn out to be nothing more than a joke.
This episode has the same layout as Episode 6, but with some extra enemies added and some of the Seed Weeds replaced with Thorn Weeds. The doors that were locked in Episode 6 have been locked again, with the keys being exactly where they were previously except for the Waterfall Basin Seal, which doesn't appear. The first treasure is at the top-right corner of the ruins, where the Seven-Leaf Clover was in Episode 6. It is accessed by using Wicked Wario in the waterfall room to fly up to the ledge on the left below the Torrent Seal door, then going through the rooms until the chest is reached. The second treasure is near the top of the ruins, where the Cosmic Mastery Gem was in Episode 6. There are two ways to reach it. One is to go back while collecting the Cataract Seal, then use it to unlock the corresponding door. Once at the top room of the ruins, the player should go to the left and obtain the Torrent Seal, then go down to where the treasure is. After getting the treasure, the player can then use the Torrent Seal to quickly get back to the waterfall room and head for the third treasure. The alternate path involves going back to the waterfall room without the Cataract Seal and instead obtaining the Floodgate Seal and using it to get to where the treasure is. After getting the treasure, the player can then backtrack through those rooms and go to where the third treasure is without obtaining either of the other keys. The third treasure is in the water in the lowest room of the ruins, where the Vengeful Robot Controller was in Episode 6.
