The Thang family (with their last name often abbreviated to T.) is the family of Jimmy T, who lives in Diamond City and appears in the WarioWare series of games. They enjoy dancing, and have done choreographed dances together. All members of the Thang family also have large colorful afros, red noses, and sunglasses.

Family members[edit]

Jamie T.
James T.
  • Jimmy T. is the most prominent member of the family. He is the oldest child and the one with the most attention. He wears a round blue afro, a red vest, blue pointed shoes, and long white pants. He is shirtless, so only his bare chest shows.
  • James T. is the brother of Jimmy. He is shorter and chubbier than his brother, and is a self-proclaimed "chick magnet". He wears an orange afro, a blue vest, a white shirt, red pants and white pointed shoes.
  • Jamie T. is Jimmy's sister. She has a dark pink afro in pigtails, and unlike the rest of her family, she has blue sunglasses. She wears a pale yellow tank top with a shooting star and a rainbow pattern on it, a red skirt and white boots. She and Jimmy are the only members of the family with belts.
  • Papa T. is the father of the Thangs and has a tall yellow afro. He wears a green long-sleeved shirt, white pants and green shoes.
  • Mama T. is the Thang family's mother. She is short and chubby like James, and has a light pink afro. She wears a yellow sleeveless vest above a red long sleeve shirt, an apron with the word "MOM" on it, short red jeans and a blue bracelet on her neck.

History[edit]

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

In WarioWare: Twisted!, Papa and Mama dance with Jimmy at Club Sugar. They later take their phones out and take pictures of him while ignoring their dinner. Sugar closes the club while the three are still inside. Later, Mama and Papa host the Family Scramble microgame set, which features microgames from Mona, Jimmy T, Kat, and Ana.

Mama and Papa make an appearance on the cover for Jimmy's Night.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

In WarioWare: Touched!, Jimmy first invites Papa and Mama onto Club Sugar's dance floor. He then calls Jamie and James to do the same. Once they all get onto the dance floor, they dance together. When Scratchy the 'Fro Bug lands in Jimmy's afro and causes him to itch wildly, they continue dancing and think he is still dancing. They finish their dance routine by taking out their cell phones. During gameplay, the family gathers around Jimmy and looks at his cell phone. If the player successfully completes a microgame, they all laugh. Failing a microgame causes the family to grimace. At the end of Jimmy's story, the family walks away from Club Sugar.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

While they do not reappear in the game itself, they all have a brief cameo in Jimmy T's character trailer for WarioWare Gold.

WarioWare: Get It Together![edit]

While they do not reappear physically in WarioWare: Get It Together!, the family has a cameo in one of the photos of Jimmy T's Gallery.
