Changes from SSB4Edit


Special Custom Set AEdit

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Chomp 2% for each bite, 5% for throw Wario bites forward, chewing on any opponents who are caught. It can be used to consume items, healing 1% damage. Eating explosives will cause Wario take hurt himself, but the explosion will damage nearby foes. Healing items consumed with Chomp heal 1.5 more damage than normal. All of the above shorten the charge time for the Wario Waft.
Custom 1 Inhaling Chomp 2% for each bite, 4% for throw Behaves like Wario's regular Chomp but with a suction effect. The throw does slightly less damage.
Custom 2 Garlic Breath 6% Long startup, but Wario exhales bad breath at his opponent. If they are next to Wario, they will be stunned as if their shield was broken. Farther opponents get knocked away and tripped.
Side Special Wario Bike 10% (damage varies on wheelie, turning, and slamming) Wario mounts his trademark Wario Bike and runs over his rivals. Tilting the opposite direction will make him turn around, dealing more damage if the opponents are slammed by the back tire. Holding up will produce a wheelie, another powerful attack, but will leave Wario defenseless.
Custom 1 Speeding Bike 8% Wario's bike is super fast, but it cannot turn around. Does more damage head on than wheelieing.
Custom 2 Burying Bike 8% Launches himself higher and further but does less damage overall.
Up Special Corkscrew 13% Wario spin-jumps into the air, hitting enemies multiple times. The move can be steered left or right.
Custom 1 Widescrew 9% Wario can control the angle of his up special. It can go nearly horizontally. It has much less distance than the default, though.
Custom 2 Corkscrew Leap 0% Wario jumps extremely high. This deals no damage.
Down Special Wario Waft 27% (maximum charged) Wario unleashes a gigantic fart on his foes. The move charges by not using it over time, which can be accelerated by Chomping items. There are 4 levels of charge, all with varying effects.
Custom 1 Rose-Scented Waft 24% (maximum charged) Wario's waft puts a flower on his opponent. Has little knockback, but the flower racks up damage fast.
Custom 2 Quick Waft --- Wario's fart charges faster and he does damage as he rises into the air. Less damage and knockback than the regular waft.

Special Custom Set BEdit

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Earthshake Punch 9% (uncharged), 14%/18%/22% (fully charged far/middle/close) Wario slams his fist into the ground and can be charged up. Wario slams it and it causes area wide damage that does more if fully charged and close.
Custom 1 Earthslip Punch 5% (uncharged), 10%/14%/18% (fully charged far/middle/close) It does signicantly less damage but causes opponents struck by the wave to slip on the ground.
Custom 2 Quickshake Punch 5% A quicker but weaker version of the Earthshake Punch. Wario is unable to charge it thus making it weaker but it doesn't suffer from much lag. It also has a weaker area of damage.
Side Special Shoulder Bash 2% (per hit) Wario rushes forward and slams his shoulder into the opponent. It will continue pushing the opponent backward; dealing damage unless stop by an external force of after the duration of traveling stops.
Custom 1 Shoulder Slam 12% Slower and shorter traveling but Wario will slam his shoulder; dealing more damage and knockback but he is also pushed back in a vulnerable state,
Custom 2 Shoulder Whack 4% Wario will run forward and slam his shoulder into his opponent. It does hitstun but zero knockback. It is much quicker than the default with longer traveling distance.
Up Special Puffy Wario 0% Wario will fill himself with air and rise up. He has free control of his movements upwards. If he is attacked, he looses air until he has none left in which he falls back to the ground. After a duration of time, he exhales and falls back to the ground.
Custom 1 Windy Wario 0% Wario flies up straight into the sky but then slowly floats down by releasing air from his mouth. This air can blow opponents away from Wario but doesn't deal damage. As he falls down, he can look right or left but unable to fully control himself.
Custom 2 Gassy Wario 8% Wario will drift upwards but slower than the default and doesn't have full control of his motions. If he is popped, he explodes with gas which does area wide damage.
Down Special Bomb Block 14% Wario throws a Bomb Block with will detonate once it hits an enemy, a stage hazard, or an item/assist trophy/pokemon. If it doesn't, it will sit there until it makes contact or after a duration of time. Wario can be damaged by it.
Custom 1 Fart Block 12% Does less damage than the default but knocks opponents more vertically. When it explodes, it releases a fart cloud much like his Wario Waft.
Custom 2 Dud Block 2% (thrown), 13% (picked up and thrown) It doesn't explode when thrown and deals very little damage but it does more damage when picked up and thrown.

Final SmashEdit

Name Damage Description
Final Smash 1 Wario Man Varies Wario eats a garlic clove and transforms into Wario-Man. While he's transformed, Wario-Man has permanent super armor, launch resistance, and drastically amplified agility and strength. His aerials grant him infinite recovery, his down throw meteor smashes when used on a ledge, and his specials are boosted to the extreme, particularly his Wario Bike and Wario Waft. However, taking damage will reduce the time this Final Smash lasts.
Final Smash 2 Atomic Waft 58% Wario eats a treasure chest and begins to grow expotentially. As he grows, his stomach swells up causing Wario some distress. He pats his belly but then his eyes widen. A light shines from his stomach, he bends over, and launches a huge far that covers a good portion of the stage. The attack blasts a hole in his pants but he covers it and then changes. The fart cloud has a vacuum that can pull in opponents into the blast.


Italics means they have to be unlocked.

  • Belly laughs hard enough to unhinge his jaw so that he has to put it back together. (Up)
  • Waves his butt at the screen while snickering. (Right)
  • Wario spins in a circle for some time before getting dizzy and then falls down with a squeak from his butt. (Right)
  • Wario faces the screen, holds up three fingers with his left hand that seem to form a “W” for Wario and then does the same with his right hand after putting away his left hand. Then, he holds them both out at the same time. Wario utters “Wah!” three times for each time he holds up a hand, the third “Wah!” having the most enthusiasm.(Down)
  • Does a “W” sign with his hand while picking his nose with the left hand. (On the Bike)

Character Selection ScreenEdit

  • Wario scratches his butt and looks at the camera saying “Oh right!”
  • Wario throws up a peace sign while going “Wahh!”
  • Wario slaps his belly and burps.

On Screen AppearanceEdit

  • Wario enters in on his bike and jumps off when it explodes.
  • Falls down from the sky and, as he lands, let out a small fart. He laughs mischievously.
  • Appears from a blue portal from the side, jumps out with purple clouds forming around him.

Victory AnimationsEdit

  • He does a doughnut on his bike, does a “W” sign with his hand and then jumps off while pulling on his mustache.
  • He laughs heatedly and then falls over to his side while still laughing.
  • Pats his belly and then farts while looking surprised and then says “Oh!”
  • Wario jumps up and down with Waluigi celebrating in the background.

Losing AnimationEdit

  • Wario is frowning while clapping his hands.
  • Wario is crying a bit while looking very red in his face.
  • Wario is throwing a temper tantrum.

Victory FanfareEdit

A flourished remix based the victory theme that was an original track that was mixed into Brawl's Waluigi Pinball remix. However, the flourish was later incorporated into some music tracks of Wario Land: Shake It!. There are, however, slight resemblances to the pre-boss theme and the fanfare that plays in WarioWare: Touched! when the player beats a microgame in Wario's storyline.

Idle PosesEdit

  • Crosses his arms, fists clenched.
  • Scratches bottom.
  • Poots slightly and smiles mischievously.
  • Picks his nose with his finger.
