When performed, Wario eats a clove of garlic and laughs as he transforms into Wario-Man, his costumed alter-ego. Wario-Man is able to move freely and has a full moveset consisting of modified versions of Wario's normal attacks, which are generally changed to deal more damage and knockback, have less startup or ending lag, or have new properties such as lifting him into the air. Additionally, he moves faster, jumps higher, falls more slowly, and has much more knockback resistance, though he can still receive damage from attacks. After approximately 20 seconds, Wario-Man will revert back to Wario's normal form, ending the move.
Opens his jaws to trap opponents he comes into contact with. Automatically chomps on opponents, and throws them forward. If the player presses the special button, Wario-Man will chomp on opponents, but it will not do damage.
Wario-Man laughs so hard that his jaw breaks, so he has to forcefully put it back in place with his hands.
Wario-Man shakes his rear end at the camera while snickering.
Wario-Man yells, "Wa, wa, wa!" while putting up 3 fingers for each "Wa!" which supposedly symbolizes the "W" for Wario, and holds up 6 fingers in the last "Wa!" while facing the screen.
Takes less knockback.
Wario-Man originates from WarioWare: Twisted! and WarioWare: Touched!, appearing as the alter-ego for Wario. In both games, once the player has beaten all of the microgame compilations from the other characters, the player unlocks Wario-Man's microgames compilation. In WarioWare: Twisted, Wario transforms into Wario-Man after falling into Dr. Crygor's invention: the Gravitator. In WarioWare: Touched!, Wario transforms after consuming a rotten piece of garlic. This "new character" then appears on the main menu with a brand new set of microgames available to attempt. Wario-Man's microgames were the last of its kind both times and are more challenging than the preceding microgames.
