"Wow! Look at all those Nintendo 3DS systems! It's no big deal, but...I have one of each. The only problem is I always forget where the stylus goes! Nintendo 3DS released in 2011, Nintendo 3DS XL released in 2012, Nintendo 2DS released in 2013, New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL released in 2015, and New Nintendo 2DS XL released in 2017."

Stylus Hunt (originally known as Pushing Buttons) is one of the microgames in 9-Volt and 18-Volt's Retro Action stage in WarioWare: Touched!, and returns as one of 9-Volt's microgames in WarioWare Gold. It involves the handheld consoles Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP, and Nintendo DS in Touched!, and various Nintendo 3DS consoles in Gold.


The object is to press the indicated button (the button with the red circle) to make Wario appear on the screen in Touched!, or to find the stylus to make the 3DS logo appear in Gold. The player has eight seconds to search for the button/stylus.

Wario's appearance as he flies towards the screen resembles his cover artwork from Wario Land 3 (except with his hand making the "V" sign instead of three fingers), while his appearance when he hits the screen resembles his Bubble Wario artwork from Wario Land 4.
