Warukio, Mario Party 6

Warukio is the evil version of Woody who first appears in Mario Party 3 in Woody Woods. Whereas Woody has a perpetually happy expression and a kind-hearted attitude, Warukio has a perpetually angry expression and a hostile attitude. If a player lands on one of the three ? Spaces surrounding him, he will award them a Minus Coin Fruit (resulting in a loss of 5 coins) or a Reverse Block Fruit allowing the player to roll again, but go in reverse.

Warukio appears in Mario Party 6 on the board Towering Treetop. He appears at night to replace Woody at the top of the board. Whenever a character lands on one of Warukio's Event Spaces, instead of him giving coins like Woody does, Warukio will instead take away coins by dropping Spinies on every character.

After a long absence, Warukio reappears in the returning board from Mario Party 3 Woody Woods in Mario Party Superstars. His design has been reverted back to his design from Mario Party 3.

Trivia[edit]

  • The structure of Warukio's name is intentionally like that of Wario and Waluigi, being a portmanteau of the Japanese word warui (悪い), meaning "bad," and the name of their good counterpart.
  • The coloration of Warukio's body and leaves is inverted from Woody's coloration.
