Wario is one of the most changed fighters from the previous games (the others being Bowser, Lucas and Dark Pit for example) with his moveset now remade in part to be more similar to his Wario Land series moves. In fact, Chomp and Corkscrew have been changed to Dragon Wario and Balloon Wario. However, Wario lost some of his knockback in this game but has been buffed in his ground and air speed.
