Three's a Crowd is one of Tiny Wario's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. Its name comes from the phrase "two's company, three's a crowd."


The objective is to have Wario wait for the ninja to arrive (from above, below, or the side), then jolt up the Wii Remote to slash him before he attacks him, otherwise the player fails the microgame. They also fail if Wario slashes too early or attacks a woman that may pass by delivering tea, which makes her cry. When the ninja is slashed, his clothing is sliced off (revealing his underwear), the woman sitting next to Wario claps, and the microgame is won.

  • Level 1: The ninja simply appears. When the ninja is slashed, heart-print boxer shorts are revealed.
  • Level 2: The ninja may fake out before appearing or the woman delivering tea may appear to distract the player. When the ninja is slashed, white underwear is revealed.
  • Level 3: One or both instances in Level 2 occur. The woman delivering tea may also be the ninja in disguise. When the ninja is slashed, pink underwear is revealed.

The microgame in the Korean version
  • In the Korean version of the game, due to cultural differences, some aspects have changed. Wario retains his normal outfit, the ninja is replaced by a monkey, the woman is replaced with a bunch of bananas, and the background has changed to a jungle. Wario must wait for the incoming monkey and whack it before it gets all the banana bunches.
