|WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!|
Also known as: Made in Wario (JP), Wario Ware, Inc.: Minigame Mania (EU)
This game has a prototype article
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! is the gripping tale of Wario and his friends forming their own game company. The result is a bizarre collection of very short (and often very strange) minigames called "Microgames", with a few "Wario" takes on other classic games thrown in for good measure.
Amusingly, Wario and friends had some leftovers, given that this was their first game both in the series and in canon. With a cheating device or a cheat option in an emulator, change address 03000E61 to one of the following game numbers.
Game Number: 2F
A microgame where only two blocks can be broken before time expires. The paddle gets smaller with each level. This was likely meant for 9-Volt's stage, as it is based on the early Nintendo arcade game Block Breaker.
Game Number: 5E
A microgame with all three level variations where the stats at the top of the screen never change. This was also likely meant for 9-Volt's stage as it is based on F1 Race, an early Famicom game.
Level 1 is merely a straight course.
Level 2 begins with a straight path, but curves halfway through.
Level 3 starts on a curve, and becomes straight near the end.
Game Number: 66
A microgame with all three level variations. This was also likely meant for 9-Volt's stage, as it appears to be based on Nintendo's late-1970s "Color TV Game 6/15" home console.
Level 2 has smaller paddles.
Level 3 has a pair of parallel paddles for each side.
Game Number: E5
A game presumably meant to be unlocked with the other VS titles.
First to five points wins. Like the other VS games, L and R move the paddles up and down for their respective sides.
Dodge Balls retains the higher level capabilities present in the demo from Wario World. There are nine levels altogether, and on the highest level there are ten balls for you to dodge.
The menu graphics contain an unused smaller and darker thumbnail for Jimmy T and a white cell phone folder.
This is loaded into the VRAM of the Introduction grid in place of the microgames it does not have due to being smaller than other grids. Most likely used as a placeholder.

Pyoro has a small devil among its sprites.

|m_BGM_BOMB_32_Wario_01|| These three tracks are for a 2-bar Wario Land microgame. The main melody comes from the first game (and indeed, the first track closely resembles it), while the third iteration uses musical elements from the fourth game. The second iteration has some techno-ish sounds added.
A Wario Land microgame did not appear until WarioWare: Smooth Moves, which was based on Super Mario Land 3. Another appeared in WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase, based on Wario Land 4.

The background of the Nail Call boss game was changed from brown to black.
R.O.B.'s red colors were changed to gray, as they were when it was originally brought overseas, and the Famicom was appropriately changed to a front-loading NES. The color changes also affected the Robot Block logo, as it shares a palette with R.O.B.
Kat and Ana
While the goal of Fruit Fall remains the same (catch a falling fruit in your basket), the "not fruit" graphic was changed from a poo to a diamond.
