The Curious Factory is the first level of the Ruby Passage from the Game Boy Advance game Wario Land 4. It is a labyrinth of a factory with robot-like enemies and many pistons and Decompressors, which turn Wario into Flat Wario and back to normal, respectively. Much of the flooring and platforms in the level are made up of conveyor belts. The enemy Togerobo is exclusive to this level. This level also features the first appearance of Kaentsubo, which can transform Wario into Flaming Wario, allowing him to break Bonfire Blocks. Hitting the switch will open up the underground area of the level. This level's CD is called Driftwood & the Island Dog and once collected, it can be played in the Sound Room.
