The Variety Towers are a group of sidemodes found in the WarioWare series. They consist of three or four towers, each proposing a challenge to the player. They can be unlocked after beating the main mode or by completing a previous tower with a certain score. Most of these towers are provided to the player as an additional challenge, though in WarioWare: Get It Together!, they are visited during the story when Wario and his crew are looking for Red, Master Mantis and Lulu. Most games featuring the Variety Towers have a motif around an animal: WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! has a pig, WarioWare: Twisted! has a monkey, WarioWare: Touched! has a bear, WarioWare: Smooth Moves has an elephant, WarioWare Gold has a lion, crocodile, and eagle, WarioWare: Get It Together! has a gorilla family, and WarioWare: Move It! has a hippo, tiger, snake, and flamingo.


All Mixed Up[edit]

All Mixed Up (known as Easy in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, Skyscraper in WarioWare: Twisted!, and Monster Megamix in WarioWare: Touched!) is the first Variety Tower the player encounters. In this tower, the player has to play a series of microgames, increasing in speed and difficulty, like in the main game. While regular microgames appear, boss microgames do not, so it is impossible to earn lives. WarioWare: Smooth Moves is an exception; in this version, a boss microgame appears every 100 games. This tower is usually blue.

Super Hard[edit]

Super Hard (known as Hard in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, Tower in WarioWare: Twisted!, and Gnarly Mix in WarioWare: Touched!) is one of the Variety Towers the player plays. Depending on the game, it can be the second, third, or final tower faced. In this tower, the microgames do not increase in difficulty. However, the game starts at a very fast speed, giving the player very little time to react to and complete the microgames. This tower is usually red. Prior to WarioWare: Touched!, the microgames' music did not rise in pitch while they were sped up.

Thrill Ride[edit]

Thrill Ride (known as Thrilling in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, Mansion in WarioWare: Twisted!, Hardcore Mix in WarioWare: Touched!, and Sudden Death in WarioWare: Smooth Moves) is one of the Variety Towers the player faces. Depending on the game, it can be the second, third, or final tower unlocked. In this tower, the game does not increase in speed. However, the microgames are all on their third difficulty level (second difficulty level in WarioWare: Touched!) and the player only has one life, making any mistake an instant Game Over. This tower is usually yellow.

Total Boss[edit]

Total Boss is a Variety Tower that only appears in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!, unlocked at the same time as All Mixed Up. All boss microgames appear in this tower, cycling in order, with each one being required to complete in order to challenge the next one. Despite boss microgames appearing, players do not earn lives upon completing them. After completing every boss microgame, the level goes up. This tower is pink.


Thrilling is a Variety Tower that only appears in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. In this tower, Form cards, a regular presence in the game, are not shown before the microgame begins. The description for the tower prompts the player to start each microgame in the Remote Control Form. Microgames start at Level 2 and increase in speed every 10 microgames. This tower is green.

Double Act[edit]

Double Act is a Variety Tower that only appears in WarioWare: Move It! In this tower, only co-op microgames appear. The stage is represented by two flamingos.
