- Merlin: "I suppose I have a lot to tell you."
- Mario: "I just want the whole truth."
- Merlin: "Yes, of course. Very well. It all began a little over a year ago. Wario was under Bowser's employment, totally unaware of what he was. As my alias "Nilrem," I was able to convince Bowser to hire Waluigi so that the two could work together. It was imperative that Waluigi protect Wario, though he didn't know it at the time... but I didn't expect Wario to get so angry after Bowser fired him. Wario left Waluigi and obtained the Truth Stone and the Nether Saber. He was now doing the opposite of his destiny."
- — Merlin tells Mario how involved he was in Wario's path
Wario is the secondary antagonist-turned-tritagonist of Stupid Mario Brothers and the tritagonist of That Stupid Video Game Show. He is Mario's former arch-rival and alter-ego, Waluigi's older brother and boss, and one of Bowser's former henchmen.
Originally, Wario was hired by Bowser to take Mario and Luigi back to the Mushroom Kingdom. His constant failed attempts lead to the recruitment of Waluigi, who stayed with him until the two were fired.
- "You always knew. You knew you were special in some way, you just didn't know why or how. You don't really want to be evil, you just thought you had to be."
- —Waluigi showing understanding for Wario's ways
By prophecy, Wario was destined to be one of the two Chosen Ones. He knew he was special, though he didn't understand what about him was special. Believing himself to be evil, Wario shared a bitter rivalry with Mario.
After Mario and Luigi traveled to the Real World to stay and have fun, King Bowser required them to return to the Mushroom Kingdom. Soon, Wario is hired by Bowser as his most trusted henchman to bring the brothers back from the Real World to the Mushroom Kingdom.
One day, when Mario and Luigi are looking for some Super Mushrooms, Wario arrives and tries to get them to come with him to the Mushroom Kingdom, announcing that Bowser has hired him as his henchman to capture Mario and Luigi. Because of the extreme cold, he invites them inside his house to continue his appeal.
In Wario's house, Wario tells Mario and Luigi that they have been in the Real World long enough and demands they come back to the Mushroom Kingdom with him as he claims their vacation to be over. Mario snaps at Wario, telling him that in the country of Hyrule, Link isn't doing anything and suggest Wario get him to do it for a change, followed by Wario exclaiming, "WEH!". Luigi arrives, telling Mario that Link has problems of his own, but Mario brushes this off and tells Wario that the point is that he and Luigi are going to stay in the Real World. Angered, Wario tells Mario that Bowser had told him that if they said that, he would have to fight them. However, this doesn't bother Mario as he wishes Wario luck since he and Luigi just beat Sonic at the Olympic Games. Laughing, Wario rudely says that Sonic is past his prime and is slower than a "mangled Goomba", telling the brothers that their beating him means nothing. Mario calls Wario a "son of a Goomba" and tells him he'll never take them alive. He adds that he only has one thing to say to him, but points at nothing while asking Wario, "What's that over there?!". As soon as Wario looks away and is distracted, Mario and Luigi quickly get up and run away, screaming. In defeat, an angered Wario says that while the Mario Brothers have managed to get away this time, he will be back to bring them back to the Mushroom Kingdom and proceeds to laugh evilly. ("Tired of the Mushroom Kingdom")
After an argument between Mario and Luigi, Wario temporarily has Luigi in his grasp. However, Wario asks him to leave when he realizes how different the two are. Luigi leaves him and Wario vows to get both of the brothers one day. ("A Tale of Two Brothers")
Throughout the days, Mario and Luigi continue to escape from Wario. After his continuous failures, King Bowser sends his other henchman and Wario's brother Waluigi to assist him in defeating the two and bringing them back to the Mushroom Kingdom. ("One Ring that is better than a Compass") ("Wario's New Partner likes Purple")
Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi face off and have a battle. Wario and Waluigi are both eliminated when the battle finally resorts to fireballs being thrown by Mario and Luigi. ("Make Fireballs, Not Love!")
Briefly, Wario makes peace with the Mario Brothers, auditioning for their band Johnny Mushroom and the Kingdoms as a guitar player. Mario decides to break the band up because he is extremely bored of it. ("A Band that is better than the Jonas Brothers!")]
Wario and Waluigi continue to harass them and later become enemies with Waluigi's roommate Donkey Kong. They also managed to get a job at the printer shop, a job which Wario keeps for a very long time. Mario and Luigi ride around on their quad when Wario and Waluigi show up to race them. Luigi chucks a banana to take out the Wario Brothers shoot a fireball that knocks Luigi off the back of the quad. Mario and Wario continue to race until they crash into a mailbox. They prepare to fight, but Mario walks away and leaves Wario to Donkey Kong, who arrives on the scene and chases a now-scared Wario. ("Real Jobs Suck") ("A Monkey for your Thoughts?") ("Stupid Mario Kart")
Afterwards, Wario and Waluigi go to the mailbox. They receive a letter from an angry Bowser. Ignoring their boss' letter, Wario and Waluigi furiously stomp on it and decide to go get some snacks, but Bob and Joe are out. The pair go to the swings in Mario's backyard. Mario and Luigi confront them, but Wario makes it clear he isn't in the mood. The two leave very content. Wario notices a nearby banana and begins to eat it, but Donkey Kong arrives and chases him away. ("Stupid Wario Brothers and No Snacks")
Near the end of the series, Peach returns to the Real World in a box. Wario and Waluigi are instructed by Bowser to bring the Mario Brothers back to the Mushroom Kingdom at all costs. Soon, they meet at the battlefield to begin their showdown after Mario and Luigi train to prepare. ("The Final Countdown until the next Countdown")
Wario and Waluigi are able to take out Luigi, using their combined powers, and are joined by FedEx. Fortunately, Mario gets Donkey Kong and Ash as his new reinforcements. After the battle continues, only Mario and Wario are left. Wario explains he is working for Bowser in hopes that he will get a taste of his power. Knowing there is no other way, Mario engages in a Beam Sword duel with his alter-ego. Wario is able to take out Mario, but before he can finish him, he is knocked out by Peach using her umbrella, much to everybody's confusion. ("Stupid Smash Brothers")
After being defeated, Wario and Waluigi awaken and run off, warning Mario and Luigi that they'll regret not returning to the Mushroom Kingdom. Realizing they have failed to bring Mario and Luigi back with them, Waluigi tells Wario that it would be safest for them to leave King Bowser. However, Wario refuses, telling his brother that he will forgive them.
Afterwards, Wario goes to Bowser's hideout, where he asks his boss for forgiveness. During this trip, Waluigi begins dating Walgina, but much to his chagrin, he isn't pleased. Bowser fires them because of their incompetence, making Wario even more angry. He, with Waluigi, plots revenge against Mario and Luigi for disgracing him. On their first attempt (which was beating them at soccer), they both get red cards by the referee Brock for touching the ball with their hands and Wario's persistence in arguing with him.
In the episode "Who is Scott Masterson?", Wario and Waluigi learn that they are fired from the newly-reformed Johnny Mushroom and the Kingdoms by the new manager Scott Masterson. The duo made a new group named Tommy Fungus and the Dungeons to exact revenge on Mario and Luigi. They invited FedEx to the group due to his occasional playing of Guitar Hero. Walgina is the only one to audition, but Wario doesn't want her and sends her away. However, Waluigi forces Wario to allow her in or else he would leave, so he begrudgingly agrees. The group rehearse, but an agitated Wario shouts that it sucks. He shoos FedEx and Walgina and then the end of the group comes. They make a new plan: Steal the instruments of Johnny Mushroom and the Kingdoms. However, this plan failed as well because the band sang a Capella.
Wario tells Waluigi that he doesn't want to see him again and ends their friendship because he thinks his plans were failed because of him.
As Mario faces Nox Decious, the Nether Saber is knocked away before he can piece it together. Decious nearly kills Mario, but Wario arrives to assemble the saber. Without Decious noticing, Wario activates the saber and thrusts it into Decious' back, killing him. Shocked and a bit confused, Mario begins to thank him for rescuing him. However, Wario reveals that he only saved Mario from Decious so that he can kill him himself.
The Darkness left Nox Decious to find a new vessel. It attached itself to the most powerful being it could find: Mario. The plumber lost control of his body to the Darkness and began to be filled with uncontrollable rage, an event that he was unaware of until he later tried to recollect what really happened and Wario began to become visibly afraid. The Darkness summons Wario's saber from his pocket and begins to battle him. As the Darkness had utilized Mario's full potential, he was able to overpower Wario, who manages to force push Mario away. Then the Darkness leaves Mario's body to take physical form. ("Remembrance")
He prepares to kill Mario with the Nether Saber, but it powers down as he began to stab the hero, by intervention of Merlin. As Wario shouts in fury at the saber, Mario flees. Wario pulls the Truth Stone from Decious' remains and then a voice tells him to meet a man named Nilrem (who was actually Merlin in disguise). ("This time, It's Personal!")
Wario did what he was told and learned how to recharge the Nether Saber. As he walks, the voice returns and Wario asks the voice why he is putting his nose in his business and the voice tells him that he is helping him out. Irritated, Wario tells the voice to leave to him alone, but later on, the voice returns and wants to know how to recharge the Nether Saber. Wario refuses to tell and learns that the voice has a master, but it doesn't tell him. Then Wario meets Walgina, who wants to know where Waluigi is. However, Wario tells her for Mario and Luigi and later and throw away the Nether Saber since it won't work.
Afterwards, Wario disguises himself as Master Miller and tricks Ash, Solid Snake, and Otacon to recharge the Nether Saber at Merlin's table since it the only place it an recharge and he gets the Nether Saber and battles Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi. He manages to defeat Wario and Waluigi, but battles Waluigi longer than the others.
Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi manage to defeat him and Waluigi tells Wario about the Chosen Two and Wario is the Second Chosen One. Upon learning this, Wario reforms, apologizes for everything, and changes his ways of evil for good.
Mario invites Wario to have some fun and gladly joins them in dancing. They go to the fair where Wario is disappointed by the lack of cotton candy.
Later, Wario tells Solid Snake to alert him if the Darkness arrives. When the Darkness tries to kill Snake, Luigi blocks his attack. While Luigi battles the Darkness, Solid Snake calls Wario. The Darkness uses the remnant of Nox Decious to control Luigi and create Mr. L.
When Mario arrives to find Luigi, he is shocked to learn that Luigi is alive, in some form. The Darkness “kills” Mario at this time and then turns on Decious, who then leaves as Wario arrives. The two proceed to battle, with both putting up quite a fight. The Darkness uses the Black Widow Blade to impale him and Wario falls to the ground. He fakes his death and the Darkness ponders where the Truth Stone could be. While the Darkness is walking away, Wario pulls his saber to himself and throws it through the Darkness, supposedly "killing" him. Then he pays his respects to Mario when he is thought to be dead, wishing that things could have been different, and that there was never a need for them to be enemies.
Waluigi arrives to tell Wario that he needs the counter curse to truly defeat the Darkness. Wario asks for the counter curse and returns to face the Darkness once more.
He approaches the battlefield with a smile as he knows that the Darkness will lose. Wario teases the Darkness and angers him to the point of attacking. Wario gets in a swift hit on the evil being, but he counters and begins to win the fight for a bit. Wario knocks the Darkness onto the ground and mutters the counter curse. He pulls his beam sword to himself and stabs the Darkness, seemingly killing him.
Later, Wario is seen with Mario and Luigi at the mailbox. Mario mentions that they can make a better future for themselves and don't need to go back to the Mushroom Kingdom yet. Wario smiles, realizing that he has finally redeemed himself and can continue to do so.
Wario is told by Merlin to tell Solid Snake not to shoot the Beacon, which is revealed at the end of Season Four to be a device that Blaire and the Darkness had built. He runs to it and does what he is told, but nobody believes him and it is shot anyway.
After the team recovers, the group finds out that their powers do not work anymore. They decide to live life without them.
Soon, Wario runs into pirates and tries to fit in, but failed and runs into a third pirate, who teams up with Wario and gets the treasure and what to do with it Wario said, "Pay rent." The pirate plans to stop production of the Golden Compass 2 and Wario ends his section of The Interactive Adventure by exclaiming, "WHAT?!".
At the end, Solid Snake tried to be the new comic relief character, but Wario was even funnier.Mario and his best friends begin to settle down without the aid of their powers. He has a dream sequence in which Wario appears, reminiscing about the days when they had their abilities. ("Death is Like A Box of Chocolates")
Wario is playing Golden Sun when Waluigi appears, now with an accent that he adopted while in Australia. He learns that Waluigi and Walgina broke up and the duo begin to spend time together. Waluigi believes he is smarter than Wario, causing the two to go at each other using Scrabble pieces to insult each other. They also have a singing battle, which Waluigi wins. ("Poke-Drawls") ("The Case Of The Stolen Junk")
Wario begins writing a letter to Mona, a girl he has feelings for. Waluigi takes his letter and teases him about it, agreeing to give it back if he tells who she is. Wario agrees, and elaborates on how he met her at WarioWare. He sends the letter off in an attempt to properly ask her out. Riding on Yoshi's back, he meets with an obviously aging Snake with the belief that they need to regain their powers. ("A Huge Payne")
Wario and Luigi attend a poker tournament hosted by Sir Drake Saint Jupiter III to win money for Snake's FOXDIE cure. Luigi folds every time, but Wario wins the game. "Old Shoe" accuses Wario of cheating, but a more sophisticated player believes he wins fair and square. "Old Shoe" pulls a gun, and the sophisticated player does the same. Sir Drake Saint Jupiter and the other poker player flee the scene. Wario and Luigi get away as the remaining players kill each other. The duo call Mario to announce the victory, but they are pulled over by Max Payne. Payne takes the money as the poker game was illegal. ("You Can't Read My Poker Face!")
Wario and Solid Snake question why the beacon was so easily destroyed. Wario later becomes upset as Mona has yet to write him. Waluigi fails to understand why he doesn't throw fireballs to relieve his stress as usual, as Waluigi had not lost his powers. ("Poke-Suckers!")Wario rejoins Johnny Mushroom and the Kingdoms on guitar as they are being sued and need to write original songs. He invites Waluigi on board as the songwriter, as he has studied songwriting for six months in Australia. Though he wants more classical music, Mario insists on sticking with their genre and writing punk rock. Waluigi agrees, though he does not want to be typecast as a rock song writer. They also make a music video, which annoys Wario as he has to constantly redo his part. ("JMK FOREVER")
At the end of the season, Wario goes on vacation with her and officially becomes her boyfriend, much to his delight. He also receives a new costume which resembles his WarioWare appearance.
Wario joins Mario's army to fight off the other armies but with his original costume back. He and Mona join Mario at the battlefield to fight off an infinite supply of ninjas. He and Mona are knocked out as Mario battles Nox Decious. Decious leaves, when Wario and Mona get up and rejoin Mario. They wonder if Merlin is truly dead. Later, they regroup at Mario's house, where they are shocked to see Solid Snake drop dead. ("Dark Dookie")
Wario is knocked out in the following battle by a ninja that sneaks up behind him and jabs him in the skull. He is transported out of battle with the others by the Darkness. ("Shadow Scum VS Ganon....Or Ganondorf...Whatever his name is!")
- "Whether we're fighting one enemy, or 9,000, we'll always be victorious."
- —Wario, when Mona questions their safety
Later, Wario and Mona discuss the events that have previously taken place at Merlin's table. She begins to worry about the group and their lack of invincibility. Wario promises her they will all be okay.
Later, Wario and Luigi are discussing countering the ninjas. The Darkness appears and proposes an alliance, though Wario tells him that he will have to wait for an answer from Mario. ("An Unexpected? Proposal")
He, along with Luigi, agree to the alliance which later, Luigi insults him as this was all his idea. He tells Luigi about the upcoming invasion of ninjas of the base. He then informs him that the Darkness has hired Captain Morgan to take out Zubashi once and for all. He then tells Luigi later that Morgan has passed out, also telling him that he had left Waluigi's room a mess due to the war. ("The Business Man and The Ape")
He and Luigi catch up on events with Waluigi who has awoken from his coma. He notes how weak Waluigi has become, poking him to effectively knock him out. ("The Return Of The Great Purple Hope!")
He later informs Luigi about the status of Waluigi and Morgan. He then goes off to find the Darkness to ask if he knows how to wake him up. He later, with Luigi, is told by Ness about Blaire's upcoming attack but they decide to stay behind in case Decious should arrive. ("Operation: Vherestorm")
Mona shouts at Wario for not being there to help when she was almost killed by Pauline. Wario tries to explain, but Mona believes Pauline attacked because they hadn't spent enough time together, so she ends the relationship, leaving and vowing never come back. Wario punches Donkey Kong in rage and begins to leave. He bids Luigi farewell before leaving, saying he would not return. Luigi believes that without Wario, the war is lost. ("It's Never a good time to ignore your girlfriend. EVER!") Later on, Ganon explained that he planned it this way, because Wario is the second Chosen One and without Wario, there is no way the Mushroom Force can win. ("Imported Sunflowers")
While wandering about the city, he sees a ninja some distance away. He walks toward it, confirms that it is a ninja, and runs after him. He pins the ninja to the wall, and it tells Wario about the current status of their team, as well as of Ganon's plan to merge the Real World with the Dark Realm. Realizing he was wrong to leave, Wario then kills him and heads back to rejoin his friends. (""As the Fanboy's say, Only Link can defeat Ganon"!")
Wario returns to Luigi, apologizing for his actions and Luigi forgives him. Luigi sends Wario to lead the pirates into battle against the ninjas. Wario then gives Waluigi some Pirate Crunch, awakening him instantly, though he soon drops back into sleep. However, he wakes up soon after to explain to Wario about Mario losing half of his soul to the Darkness and it becoming more humane because of it.
When the battle begins, Wario and Ness spectate. Upon realizing they are losing many pirates, Wario joins the battle, taking out ninja after ninja until Nox Decious appears.
After a confusing conversation, the two have a vicious duel until Decious mortally wounds Wario with a ball of dark energy. However, before he can kill him, the Darkness intervenes. While the two of them fight, Mona comes to Wario's side and takes him to Naomi Hunter for medical attention. When Wario doesn't wake up, Mona cries by his bedside.
In the ending montage, a recovered Wario is overjoyed to see Waluigi wake up, and cured of his narcolepsy. He bids his brother farewell as the man in purple goes off to find Walgina and start a normal life.
Wario appeared in Stupid Mario Football.
Wario appeared in the second episode of the sequel series. After not getting accepted into the gamer lounge, he played Pokemon for several days and caught all 649 Pokemon, shocking the door guy and later, Mario.
He reappeared in the fourth episode as one of the contestants of Find Love.
In the fifth episode, he reminds Mario that he owes him $300 bucks.
Bill Summers, a newsreader for Feral City News reveals himself to be the son of Wario and Mona in Episode 10. Not wanting to wait around and do nothing as Mario tries to save the city. It is unknown about Wario or Mona's fate.
In A Richalvarez Christmas Carol, the "real" Wario tried to get revenge on Alvarez for the way he portrayed him in Stupid Mario Brothers and its spin-off series. However, by the end, it is shown that the whole thing was simply a dream.
Later, they went to Wendy's. Soon, Mario finds out that he has no money for pay the food; so he asks Wario if he has any money. Unfortunately, Wario has no money, so the duo returned to Mario's house to get Mario's Gameboy wallet.
Wario has a complex personality: For most of Season One and early Season Two, he was stupid, dim-witted, even more lazy than Mario, and cranky. At the end of Season One, a darker and more serious side began to take shape. He reveals his jealousy of Mario and his desire to be great. After his rejection by both King Bowser and Nox Decious, Wario slowly shifts to his darker side, rejecting Waluigi and swearing revenge on Mario.
Season 3 shows Wario's darker side for most of the episodes. He becomes cold, arrogant, aggressive, and short tempered, which makes the core of the Nether Saber a blue color, indicating his inner turmoil. He blames the Mario Bros and their friends for all his problems, and makes it his sole objective to kill them. However, he cannot come up with an answer when Walgina asks him how the Mario Bros are responsible for ruining his life. At the end of the series, he sees the errors of his ways, accepts he is the second Chosen One and becomes more of his comedic side again.
Wario shows his goofy side in Act I of the movie, but returns to his serious side in Act II. Determined to prove himself, Wario willingly helps Coconut and defeats the Darkness. He carries this personality throughout Blind Storm, but returns to his goofy side in the Interactive Adventure and is a clever mix of both in Season 4 and Season 5.
It is notable that Wario tends to fare as an individual much better than as a member of a group. While with Waluigi, he was constantly defeated. However, after ending their friendship he became strong and was able to hold his own against the Darkness-possessed Mario and last very long in his battle with Waluigi, Mario, and Luigi. Also, he was able to defeat the Darkness not just once, but twice. In the battle against ninjas, he and Mona are knocked out while only Mario remains to battle Decious. Later, Wario is knocked out by a ninja from behind in the battle against Ganon's army.
When Mona leaves, Wario becomes depressed and feels inadequate. He leaves the group angry, though he does apologize to Luigi as he walks away. Later, he prepares to redeem himself and return to his friends.
Wario is often criticized by others for having a bad taste in movies, preferring The Golden Compass over The Lord of the Rings, as well as expressing a dislike for Peter Jackson in general.
Abilities / SkillsEdit
- Fireballs: Like Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi, Wario can generate fireballs from his hands. Also like the other three, Wario's fireballs match his clothing. His fireballs are not quite as strong as Mario and Waluigi's, though he can fire them rapidly and seemingly effortlessly.
- Telekinesis: Wario is capable of utilizing telekinesis, as he has used it to pull his beam sword to himself. He also used it to send Mario flying backwards during their battle while Mario was under the influence of the Darkness.
- Combat Prowess: Wario's skill with beam swords is exceptional. By obtaining the Nether Saber, his strength and technique was heavily amplified. He was able to hold his own for quite a bit against Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi once. Also, he managed to defeat the Darkness twice in combat.
- Farts: Wario's ability to fart is mostly useless in combat, though it has been helpful to him in winning competitions, distraction, and humiliating others. As Mario points out, nobody likes that move.
Wario met Mona while he was busy creating his WarioWare franchise. He became affectionate, though he never properly asked her out. He later sent her a letter, prompting her to come to the Real World. The two spent time together, until the point of her calling him "boyfriend." Wario was fairly confident in her safety, though she was worried.
When Pauline tried to kill her, she became angry with Wario for not spending enough time with her to know she could be attacked. She leaves Wario and the group, causing him to become horribly upset and reminiscent of his evil self. He quits the group and leaves, implying losing Mona made him feel like he lost the only thing he had done right. He sinks into depression and feelings of inadequacy. They then reunite after Mona returns and helps him to Naomi's makeshift hospital for treatment after he is severely injured by Decious and she shows how much she cares for him by not leaving his bedside. After he recovers and says goodbye to Waluigi he and Mona walk off into the sunset together no doubt to spend the rest of their lives together.
- "I wish things could have been different. There was never a need for us to be enemies."
- —Wario, when he believed Mario was killed by The Darkness, in Act II Part 3
Mario and Wario are cousins, but also were once sworn enemies. Wario was jealous of Mario and desired to kill him. The truth of Wario hates Mario is revealed in a old comic book called Mario vs. Wario where Wario reveled that Mario has bullied him when they used best friends as babies and since then Wario vowed revenge. At one point, he told Waluigi that he was through with him and was no longer his friend, blaming him for his failures at killing Mario. Wario's desire for power was quenched when he attained the Nether Saber, which he then attempted to use to kill Mario. Merlin turned off the saber before he could.
Mario and Wario shared something in common, however. They were the Chosen Ones. Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi managed to overpower Wario and convince him to join their side. Wario then began to redeem himself, and the pair became friends. Wario was visibly upset when he believed Mario was killed, and he later talked down on the Darkness by telling it that it was never be any more than Mario's shadow.
Wario also defended Mario when Ness implied that Mario was abandoning the group.
- Wario: "I don't care about you, or Mario, or any of this! This is not my battle."
- Luigi: "Wario! We're all friends!"
- Wario: "No, you're all friends! I'm just a reject minion who screws up everything."
- Luigi: "Wario! We are in a critical state! If you leave now, we're all dead!"
- Wario: "And I am leaving... I'm sorry."
- — Wario departs from the group.[src]
When Wario first traveled to the real world, he desired to bring his two cousins, Mario and Luigi back to the Mushroom Kingdom. He did get Luigi in his grasp once, though he considered him too annoying and sent him back to Mario.
After becoming an ally to Mario, Wario and Luigi spent much time together. They often discussed strategy when their leader was away, and attempted to resolve conflict.
Following Mona's departure, Wario became depressed and prepared to leave. Luigi expressed his need for Wario's presence (as he is the second Chosen One)), but Wario claimed he did not care about Luigi or any of his friends. Though Luigi attempted to reason with him in any way possible, Wario refused his help and wouldn't listen to reason. But later on in the series a ninja finds him and tells him everyone he cares about will die, so Wario returns and apologizes to Luigi for his behavior and then helps him and their pirate army try to defeat the ninjas and Ganon.
- Wario: "I don't care about you! I don't care about your girlfriend! I don't care about us!"
- Waluigi: "I thought we were supposed to be friends, Wario!"
- Wario: "Well then you thought wrong!"
- — Wario terminates his friendship with Waluigi[src]
The relationship between Wario and Waluigi is one of the most complex in the series. The two are best friends, but some differences between the two have led to arguments.
Waluigi was originally sent to the real world to help Wario in bring the Mario Bros back to the Mushroom Kingdom. They had differences, but stayed friends and worked together in their objective nonetheless.
When Wario and Waluigi were fired by Bowser, Wario places the blame for it on Waluigi, stating that he didn't need help in the first place.
When Waluigi reveals to Wario that he has been dating Walgina for 5 minutes, he introduces her to Wario; Walgina informs Wario that Waluigi told her he is a jerk.
Afterwards, Wario tells Waluigi he blames all his problems on him, and the two end their friendship. Despite this, near the end of Season Three, Waluigi allies himself with Mario and Luigi for Wario's sake. Waluigi then reveals to his brother during their fight that he is the second Chosen One, and the two become friends again, permanently allying themselves with Mario and Luigi.
Afterward, the duo tease each other and have some minor arguments, but they still love each other as brothers.
- Wario was sometimes thought to be the (former) tertiary antagonist of the series.
- Wario's attire differs greatly from his video game appearances. His hat is no longer a newsboy cap and the blue W emblem is now colored black, his shirt is now long sleeved (resembling his earlier appearances in video games), his gloves are now black and made of leather, the W emblems are absent, and his boots are no longer curved at the the end and are colored brown instead of green. His biker clothes are also different. There are no blue W's on the helmet or gloves, no goggles and instead of pink pants he wears blue jeans.
- In a special segment of YouTube News, he ran for for president of the Mushroom Kingdom with Venom (from Spider Man) as his vice president against Mario, saying that as president he would increase the number of troops in Hyrule and said that King Bowser had never been a problem in the first place, ironically, they both lost to Ash Ketchum, who didn't even run for president at all.
- Wario's goofiness changes his accent from Italian (goofy) to normal (serious).
- His favorite film is The Golden Compass, as shown in Episode 3 and in The Interactive Adventure. He also hates Lord of the Rings, a film that Mario, Luigi, and Waluigi like, and The Interactive Adventure as he says he will help the Mario Brothers because he hopes there will be a sequel to The Golden Compass. However, the pirate who helped him get a treasure with money tells him he will use his part of the share to buy the rights for the sequel so it never gets made. Wario is shocked to hear this.
- On the Richalvarez channel, Alvarez answered a question about Wario's changing of costumes. He answered since Season Five is the last season, he wanted him to have his classic look. He also didn't like the way the WarioWare costume turned out.
