Mario Tennis: Power Tour

Whirluigi is Waluigi's Offensive Power Shot in Mario Power Tennis and Mario Tennis: Power Tour. Waluigi jumps in the air in his signature Γ shape and spins around, generating a cyclone around him, and hits the ball with it. This causes the ball to greatly curve over the net and knock the opponent back a few feet. It also causes them to spin, hindering their movement and possibly interfering with their racket's contact with the ball. It also can cause the opponent to lose any Power Shots they may have stored. Waluigi also has low ending lag from the move.

Waluigi's Special Shot in Mario Tennis Aces (called Showtime in the game) is very similar to the Whirluigi technique. The only difference is Waluigi showing off by putting a rose in his mouth (a taunt he started to use in Mario Party 8).
