Command What a windbag!
Put a cork in it!

Windbag is the boss microgame in 9-Volt and 18-Volt's mode in Game & Wario, Gamer. A standalone version of it appears as a Cluck-A-Pop souvenir, titled BALLOON FIGHTER: Windbag.


The player controls a caped character holding a giant cork, and their objective is to seal a giant's mouth with it. To do so, the player must walk across the giant's hand all the way to his face, while he blows against them and obstacles try to take them down.

  • 1st level difficulty: Spiked balls dropping from the sky serve as obstacles. Sometimes, the "baby face" icon from Mario Paint and WarioWare: D.I.Y. falls from the sky, more quickly and sudden than the spiked balls. The character gets sent to a Japanese-like door about to shut if the player loses.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The obstacles are fish that jump over the hand to catch worms above the player's head. The character gets eaten by a frog if the player loses.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Both spiked balls and fish are obstacles. Also, the giant's hand is inclined downwards. The character gets into some soup if the player loses.
