Born in Yoshinnese, California in 1992, Wario was originally Mario's childhood friend. Wario then rebelled against Mario as he realized to himself that things were being treated unfairly to him, such as only being the Sheriff once in a friendly game and the criminal in the others. Wario then became an antagonist to Mario, rivaling even the hardships of Mario and Donkey Kong. Wario had tried to take over Mario's own castle, but failed miserably. In his efforts to go on and obtain treasure instead, Wario actually then succeeded (on his second attempt). Becoming very successful in his riches, Wario has gone on adventures to either claim more treasure or to get it back, both with good and bad results. In recent years, Wario has even started his own video game company: Wario Ware Inc. He still runs the company successfully to this day.

Powers & Abilities

  • Superhuman Strength, Speed, and Durability: Wario possesses enhanced strength that allows him to lift immensely large objects and break hard material such as clean stone with his shoulders, his durability is absurd from surviving being burnt to a crisp, squashed, being stung by numerous bees, etc., and his speed can reach moderately fast speeds with his Shoulder Dash attack.
  • Farting: No, this isn't a joke. Wario can attack with his own farts or propel him into the air or disorient foes.
  • Motorcross and Pilot Experience: Wario has had experience in both motorcross and piloting as shown in the WarioWare Inc. games, Wario Land 3, and Wario's Woods.
  • Shoulder Charge: Wario charges his foe and hits him with his shoulder. An extremely strong attack that soon became his favourite one.
  • Ground Pound: An attack common to other Super Mario characters such as Yoshi or Toad, in which Wario (while in the air) swiftly ground pounds with his butt.
  • Bodyslam: A normal bodyslam. Wario did it in the oldest Wario Land games (later replaced with the Ground Pound).
  • Chomp: Wario opens his mouth at an exaggerate ampleness and eats his foe's projectiles, it can also work as a vacuum.
  • Hypnosis: A natural ability Wario seems to have. He used it to conquer Mario’s Land and turn the citizens against the ruler.
  • Belly Blast: Wario punts a ball into the air, and then charges it up with electrokinesis (yes, he has that too) to shoot the ball forward with his belly with heavy damage.


  • Garlic: Garlic is Wario's favorite food, alongside making him fart a lot it also sometimes turns him into Wario-Man, a costumed persona of Wario that increases his physical stats tremendously as well as giving him the ability to fly.
  • Wario Bike: Wario's signature motorcycle is just that, a motorcycle that he rides around and sometimes uses to rams into things.
  • Wario Bucket: A bucket. Wario puts it on people's heads that is difficult to take off.
  • Goodstyle: A talking magic wand that helps Wario by creating special disguises for him.
  • Bombs: Wario has an affinity with bombs and explosives in general.
  • Fire Flower: Gives Wario the ability to launch fireballs out of his hands.
  • Jet Pot: Allows Wario to take to the skies and fly for a brief time, as well as improving his general mobility
  • Dragon Pot: Allows Wario to shoot fire powerful enough to break blocks, even underwater.
  • Ultra Hand: Used to attack from a distance.
  • Super Star: One of the most powerful macguffins in the Mario universe, they have the ability to increase the stats of any user tenfold as well as destroy magic barriers, grant flight, warp space, create worlds, BFR people into pictures, gain invincibility, allow teleportation, etc... This power however is usually somewhat fleeting and it may not last very long if it's used for overall stat boosting. Thanks to good old hammerspace, we know Wario can hold up to around 120.
