Changes from Smash 4

<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Aesthetics

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Like every other veteran, Wario now appears much more vibrant and his appearance is more based off his appearance in his games with a small realistic touch.

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Wario’s down tilt does more damage.

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Forward does more damage but the ending lag is also increased.

<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Aerial Attacks

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Ending lag on down aerial decreased.

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Wario  Waft’s damage fully charged increased.

Special Moves

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 them to blow up inside of Wario, but the explosion will damage nearby foes. Healing items consumed with Chomp heal 1.5x more damage than normal. All of the above shorten the charge time for the Wario Waft.
Alternate 1 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.
Alternate 2 Fluctuation 1% (grab), 1% (shake loop) Wario grabs a nearby opponent and begins to shake them radically. The grab range is short but he can grab through shields. When the shaking is done, they are launched. KOs at much later percentages.
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 until it ends. Lastly, when Wario dismounts the bike, he can destroy it, throw it at opponents, or eat it with Chomp.
Alternate 1 Speeding Bike 8% Wario's bike is super fast, but it cannot turn around. Does more damage head on than wheelieing.
Alternate 2 Shoulder Bash 16-21% (ground), 15% (air) A shoulder bash to complement Wario’s more muscular look. Rams forward with a shoulder bash. If the control stick is moved up, Wario will do a jump forward. If used in the air it will put Wario into a helpless state. This move can strangely cancel out Pikachus grounded Thunder Jolt but can be interrupted by any other projectile.
Up Special Corkscrew 13% Wario spin-jumps into the air, hitting enemies multiple times. The move can be steered left or right.
Alternate 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.
Alternate 2 Corkscrew Leap 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.
Alternate 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.
Alternate 2 Quick Waft 18% (maximum charged) Wario's fart charges faster and he does damage as he rises into the air. Less damage and knockback than the regular waft.
Final Smash 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. Distinct from other transformation final smashes in that his moves have significantly less end lag and 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.
