Hero Overview

I'm-a Wario, I'm-a gonna win!
~ Wario
You're getting veeeery greedy. You are me, Wario. You're very handsome. You have amazing new powers. Plunder and pillage pirate's treasure. Bag a bazillion coins. Buy me a castle bigger than Mario's! Repeat after me: I'm the bad guy in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, where being bad is good, and greed is good! (sinister chuckling) Come and get it on Gameboy... GREEDY!
~ Wario in the commercial for Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.
Wario time!
~ Wario


You want fun!? Wario show you fun!
~ Wario Featuring in E3 1996 And is his famous quote (as an apparition head)


Wait until they get a load of ME!!!! (sinister laugh)
~ Wario in the Wario Land Virtual Boy commercial

Wario is Mario's arch-rival, yet friend. He first appeared in Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins for the Game Boy in 1992. He is also the main protagonist of both the Wario Land and WarioWare series. He is rude, crude, selfish and a bully - certainly not qualities associated with traditional heroes, and indeed Wario is a borderline villain for the most part. However, Wario has been altered from a threat to a comedic nuisance who has actually become a hero of sorts in his own franchise (albeit a very greedy and flawed one).

Like Mario, Luigi and Waluigi, he is currently voiced by Charles Martinet. However, in the Japanese version of Mario Kart 64 as well as Mario Kart: Super Circuit and in the first two Mario Party games, he was voiced by Thomas Spindler and in the US commercial for Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, he was voiced by the late James H. Sawyer Sr..

Description

Wario has actually saved the world on numerous occasions, though it is normally done more out of his love for gold and fame than for any true care about the world's safety (Wario is not completely heartless though, just a bit of an egomaniac). Wario had his own sidekick, Waluigi who is also bad and sometimes good.

In his early appearances, Wario wore a long-sleeved shirt and had fuchsia overalls, but in his later appearances, Wario wore a short-sleeved shirt and wore purple overalls.

Despite being a villain in Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, Wario's Woods and Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman, Wario was an ally to Mario in later Mario games. Wario is not evil but a comic relief with anti-heroic purposes. Wario was an unlockable character seven times in Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64, the Game Boy Color version of Mario Golf and the Game Boy Color version of Mario Tennis, Yakuman DS, Mario Golf Advance Tour, Mario Kart 7 and Super Smash Bros. 4. He was playable in every Mario Party game except for Mario Party Advance. He was absent in the Game Boy Advance version of Mario Power Tennis.

Wario appeared in every Mario Kart game as a playable character except for Super Mario Kart. From Mario Kart 64 to Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart 7, Wario's kart is purple, but in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 his kart was yellow instead of purple, due to the color of his hat and shirt.

Personality

Wario is a greedy, selfish and rude bounty hunter. He's willing to scam his friends to get a lot of money or to take any job that pays well, despite the job itself. He's also hot headed and ill-tempered, especially against rivals like Mario. Though his rivalry with Mario is toning down, they're still strong rivals.

However, Wario isn't evil, but more of an anti-hero. He does possess heroic qualities, but he often only shows them if he has something to gain from it.

Wario Land series

Wario was a hero in this series, and teamed up with various allies to defeat various enemies and collect various treasures. Often his only goal was to collect treasures or get back home, with saving people just being a thing on the side to him.

WarioWare Inc. series

Wario is the CEO of WarioWare, Inc., and makes video games. He apparently lives in Diamond City and has numerous friends. He often scams his friends into doing work for him to profit from, yet they don't seem to hold grudges.

Other Media

Super Smash Bros.

Wario's clothes were one of Mario's alt. costumes in the game.

His clothers are in an alternate costume in the Melee as well, but Wario was made into a trophy. He originally was going to be in it, but was cut.

In Brawl, Wario finally becomes a playable character in his biker outfit, but has his classic outfit as an alternate costume. His Final Smash briefly turns him into Wario-Man, where he eats garlic and becomes super powerful and nimble.

Subspace Emissary

In the Subspace Emissary storyline, Wario is a supporting antagonist and one of the Subspace Commanders alongside Bowser and Ganondorf, though he appears to have relatively low control over the army in comparison to his cohorts. Wario's reason for joining was merely to cause widespread havoc, and he actually cares very little about the army's actual objective, so long as he's allowed to do whatever he wants.

After Kirby defeats Petey Piranha, and rescues either Princess Zelda or Princess Peach, Wario will capture the other one. After he successfully captures one of the princesses, he retreats before the Subspace Bomb goes off. Later, he dispatches Porky Minch to capture Lucus, but after Porky is defeated, Wario personally appears and changes his target to Ness (who had arrive to save Lucas). After Ness was able to dodge all of Wario's capture attempts, Wario attempted to capture Lucas instead. Ness pushed Lucas out of the way and gets captured by Wario, resulting in the villain taunting Lucas and laughing maniacally as the boy runs away. Wario is later seen finding Luigi already in his Trophy mode and proceeds to capture Luigi. However, this was a trap set by King Dedede. King Dedede managed to take Wario's cargo and take, Luigi, Ness, and one of the Princesses with him.

In a desperate attempt to restart his collection, Wario decided to fight Lucas and the Pokémon Trainers Squirtle single-handedly. However, Lucas and Squirtle managed to defeat Wario and turn him into a trophy.

Wario was eventually rescued by Kirby and decided to exact his revenge on King Dedede, kicking him in the back. But Luigi and Ness defended King Dedede. They non-verbally motioned to Wario that they were going to fight Tabuu and bring world back into order, and that he was welcome to join. So Wario decided to join all the characters to fight Tabuu, probably realizing that he'd get no chance to pull off any of his mischief.

In SSB4, Wario is in it again, but as an unlockable character. He is quicker than his Brawl version though.

Wario returns yet again in SSBU, which includes every character from the previous games. His Final Smash, Wario Man, has been changed from a transformation Final Smash into one that delivers a series of punches on opponents if used near them, and his sliding dash attack has been changed to his shoulder tackle from the Wario Land games.

Mario And Sonic

Wario is a playable character in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In the first three games, he is a Power-type character.

Trivia

  • One of Wario's alternate costumes in the Super Smash Bros. series is based on Mario's outfit from the early Mario games and in the three DIC cartoon adaptations.
  • In all of the Super Smash Bros. games except for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, one of Mario's alternate costumes is based on Mario's outfit. The same thing happens in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door when Mario wears the W Emblem badge, his clothes turn into the color scheme of Wario's and there is also a Wario costume for Mario to wear in Super Mario Odyssey.
  • In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode, "Plummers Academy", there is an unnamed overweight plumber sporting yellow and purple clothing. This could be a possible inspiration for Wario, who would be introduced three years later after the episode's original airing.
