Vanessa, WarioWare: Touched!

Vanessa is a pop singer from WarioWare: Touched!, her main appearance being as the antagonist of Mona's story, Cute Cuts. She has been at the top of the charts in Diamond City for some time.

At the beginning of the story, Vanessa is at her house watching Ear Candy to see the current music charts, confident that she will still be at number one. However, she is enraged and jealous when she learns that she has slipped to number two, being overtaken by Mona and the Hot Slices. When she hears that Mona and her band will be performing at the Hawt House, she and the Dinosaurs set out to stop them.

Vanessa and the Dinosaurs surround Mona and the Hot Slices as they drive to their show. Vanessa stays in front of them, the Dinosaurs hop into a flying bird-like ship and capture Art with a claw. Pizza Joe and Mona's animal friends try to help, but are all bashed away. Deco, however, ejects himself from the van and into their ship, taking it down, freeing Art, and foiling Vanessa's plan.

Vanessa is later at the Hawt House during Mona's performance. Mona, however, remembers that she has to deliver pizzas and leaves in the middle of the show. Vanessa gets the idea to dress up similar to Mona and take over the show, pretending to be her, but it does not work (especially since she didn't change the color of her hair or outfit) and the audience, seeing through her disguise, instead boos and throws things at her.

Vanessa can be seen singing with Mona and the Hot Slices in the epilogue movies.
