Whose Show Is This Anyway?!!
Whose Show Is This Anyway?!! is the first episode of Wario: Master of Disguise. The episode begins immediately after Wario enters the television using his newly-invented Telmet. It takes place on the S.S. Caviar, a ship that Count Cannoli was about to rob under the guise of his alter ego, the Silver Zephyr.
The episode begins on the dock outside the S.S. Caviar. Wario falls from the sky and lands directly on the Silver Zephyr, causing him to drop his wand, Goodstyle. Upon dropping Goodstyle, the Silver Zephyr loses his disguise and becomes his original self, Count Cannoli. Wario goes to pick up Goodstyle as Cannoli slowly recovers from the collision. Not knowing the powers of the wand, Wario waves it in protest to Cannoli's commands to return it. Waving the wand activates Goodstyle and causes him to tell Wario that he is its new master. Goodstyle teaches Wario how to become Thief Wario, giving Wario his first disguise of the game. Wario, realizing his new role as a thief, calls himself the "Purple Wind."
After many failed attempts at reclaiming his wand, Cannoli summons his battle machine, Mad Hat Mk. I, in an attempt to take Wario down. After Wario destroys it, Cannoli offers to help Wario get treasure if he returns Goodstyle to him. Wario accepts the deal.
The episode's gameplay picks up on the dock. Wario must run right to enter the ship. Inside the ship, Wario encounters a staircase with a green treasure chest. Wario approaches the chest and Goodstyle tells him that these chests hold Guise Gems, which Goodstyle eats in order to give Wario new disguises. When the chest is opened, a mini-game commences. Completing this mini-game awards Wario with a Cosmic Guise Gem, which allows him to transform into Cosmic Wario. Wario continues to the next room on the right, where Count Cannoli demands Goodstyle back. Wario runs away and returns to the room to find the count gone. Above Wario is a laser switch. When shot by Cosmic Wario, a red chest containing the I Love You Lunchbox drops from the ceiling. There are two blocks to the right that Thief Wario must jump over in order to progress. In the next room, there is a purple treasure chest on the ground and a platform with a money bag held by two cables. The chest rewards Wario with the S.S. Caviar's map upon completing a mini-game. This shows all of the rooms of the ship on the top screen's map.
Count Cannoli also follows Wario from this point on. If he runs into Wario, Wario is forced to reenter the current room he is in. However, the cash and rewards he obtained are still in his loot. Cannoli can be avoided by jumping over him as Thief Wario. There is another suspended platform to the right with a Munchelangelo standing on it. Wario can progress right to enter the bow of the ship, where a money bag can be found all the way to the right. Three Squabbles fly overhead. Goodstyle informs Wario about the money bags and how he can earn its contents using different attacks. Two more money bags are found to the right, as well as three more Squabbles who fly towards Wario in an attempt to harm him. Cannoli appears at the bow's entrance. If avoided, Wario returns to the previous room. There is a third suspended platform above that Cosmic Wario can shoot down, giving him a higher ground to jump and reach a ladder above. The ladder brings Wario to the upper level, where a Squabble flies over another money bag. To the right is the ship's edge with three Squabbles flying above. To the left is a crate blocking a door. Wario must push the crate and enter the door. Inside, Wario encounters a Galley Cat. Another door to the left can be entered, bringing Wario to a room with staircases that leads to a money bag and a heart to replenish health. To the left of this door is an area with an inaccessible elevator that becomes available in the following episode.
Wario progresses to the next area on the left, where Cannoli reappears, standing on a chandelier. Cannoli warns Wario that the ship is booby trapped, as he hops down from the chandelier to continue his pursuit of Wario. To the left, another Galley Cat is encountered followed by a Pushy Cat. Wario enters another door that brings him to a room with a series of red blocks and crates. To the left is a new area with a hat switch, which allows the player to save. Before the cap is a shaky surface, and if Wario steps on it the floor collapses, bringing him to the first room. However, falling down this gap leads to an otherwise inaccessible catwalk in the first room that leads to money bags and a red treasure chest, which contains the Sandals of Song. To the right of the gap is a descending ladder that leads Wario to another platform containing a red treasure chest and money bag. Inside the chest is the Excavated T. rex Skull.
Back to the previous room with the red blocks and standard blocks, Wario can interact with these blocks to help him reach a red treasure chest containing the Weightless Backpack resting on a platform. To the right in this room is a ladder that leads Wario up to a new floor of the ship. Here, Wario encounters a laser trap. If he runs into the laser, a giant hammer-like contraption swings from the ceiling. Wario must wait for the laser to go away, which it does periodically. Above is a small ledge with a money bag resting on it. Further to the left are two more Munchelangelos walking beneath Semisolid Platforms. There are red blocks in Wario's way that he can push to the ground. To the left is a new area with another red treasure chest, which contains the Reindeer Headlamp. In the previous room is a ladder above the Semisolid Platforms. This takes Wario to the top of the ship, where Cannoli confronts him again. After destroying his Mad Hat Mk. I, the episode ends.
