"All Good Things..."
Waluigi May Hold The Key To Help The Rest Of The Team.
Wario meets Waluigi, who is shooting ducks with his fireballs. Waluigi then finds out from Wario that they lost their powers (after explaining the plot of Lord of the Rings). Wario then makes a flashback to when Merlin met him. Merlin tells him about the Beacon and that he must stop Solid Snake from destroying it. He also tells him to tell Mario a riddle: "When brightest, its darkest. When darkest, its gone. When gone forever, so are you," but Wario is easily confused. The wizard tells him not to worry as he won't have to remember any of it because he will stop Solid Snake from destroying the Beacon (which he doesn't). He also adds for him to beware of the Trifecta. After making sure Wario understands everything he has told him, Merlin leaves.
They meet with Mario and Luigi still confused over the flashback and decide to have Waluigi transfer his powers to them (since he wouldn't stand a chance against Liquid, Ken and unknown man) . However if he does this he will end up in a coma until his powers recharge. In order to help them, Waluigi sacrifices himself in by giving their power and going into a coma. Outside, Donkey Kong and Snake have a mild conversation looking over what has happened and Waluigi's return. Donkey Kong then starts questioning Solid Snake's new appearance.
Waluigi starts to give everyone their powers back including Ness (although Mario isn't impressed thinking there would be cool special effects and all during the transfer). Eventually, Waluigi faints after his last power to Wario and they proceed to put him in bed to rest. Wario then walks out and is met by Solid Snake, whom continually questions why the group didn't bother investigating the Beacon; however, Wario ignores him. Mario then walks out and starts celebrating over getting his powers back (something which annoys Snake).
Meanwhile, Brock and Gary arrive at Professor Oak's house to see which one of them sucks the most. He gleefully invites them in and gives them his special drink which Brock doesn't like. Despite arguing that the Professor will easily choose Gary as the best the Professor states that a series of tests will determine who sucks the most. However as it turns out these tests involve washing and waxing his car something which annoys Gary and Brock.
