Stoves are objects that are featured in the Wario Land series. They appear as chunky, cylindric furnaces with a visible grid on their front side. Stoves can be found throughout many different levels, even in places they normally don't belong.
The stoves' main purpose is to aid Wario in reaching higher places. The treasure hunter can move the heavy objects by using his signature Dash Attack on them, and then use them as a stepping stone to reach locations he could not reach by normal means. When a stove is moved over a ledge, it descends rapidly and creates percussion upon contact with the ground, indicating their massive weight. Stoves originated in Wario Land II and were also featured in that game's successor Wario Land 3. Stoves in Wario Land 3 were slightly taller than their original counterparts.
