Universal Marionette is a microgame in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. It is in Mona's stage. The design is a reference to Leonardo da Vinci's drawing "Vitruvian Man". The microgame returns in WarioWare Gold as part of the Twist League.

Gameplay[edit]

The player must deflect the Watermelons aiming at the marionette's head with the marionette's limbs. The player loses if a watermelon takes off the marionette's head and replaces it. In WarioWare Gold, the marionette is designed after Wario.
