After some time, Luigi eventually crawls to Mario, who helps him up. Mario faces Wario and Waluigi and slowly moves his hands together, harnessing energy to create a fireball. He launches it at Wario, causing him to fall to the ground. Waluigi walks over to him and stares down at him, telling him he is weak and says he will take care of them himself. Then he creates his own fireball, which he launches at Luigi, making him fall over. Mario creates a massive fireball and fires it at Waluigi, defeating him.
