Traced Memories is a minigame in Wario: Master of Disguise. Using the touchscreen, the player must trace the entire picture before the time runs out. Meanwhile, several laser beams move up and down in various patterns; touching one causes the player to lose a chance (represented by a hat). More lasers are added to the minigame in later levels of the game, increasing its difficulty. If the player loses all the chances available, or if they have not correctly traced the image when the time runs out, the game ends. The player cannot erase or undo once they trace on the screen. Once the player has finished tracing, they can tap on the OK button at the top of the touchscreen to see the result. The result depends on how well the player has traced the image.
In the main game, the pattern that the player has to trace is chosen at random. There are 12 patterns in total; after one of them is encountered in the main game, it becomes playable anytime in the third tab of the extras menu. Here, every pattern has five different difficulty levels, each requiring the player to beat the minigame with a certain amount of time left in order to pass to the next level. The requirements, high scores and time limits that vary between difficulty levels are the same for every pattern.
