Wario's Woods is a puzzle-platformer where Toad has to stop Wario from blowing up a forest. Notable for being the first game in the Mario series where Toad is the main character (followed by Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker decades later), the only NES game to receive a rating from the ESRB, and the last licensed NES game ever released in North America. A moment of silence, if you please...

Unused Music

The last song in the game's NSF. Given that its arrangement is similar to the end credits song used in-game, it may be an earlier version.

A medley of songs in the game, possibly also intended to be end credits music.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

Japan International
They seem to be very confused at the giant letters in the sky. Wake up!

Aside from the logo change, the international versions altered the top portion of a few of the tree trunks to have a different color compared to the rest of the trunk. The sign to the woods was also altered to have a location-pointing shape.


In the Japanese version, you cannot drop objects underneath you by pressing Up unless you get stuck. The international versions removed this restriction, making the game a bit easier.


To do:
Reupload the European music in 50hz. More music differences in the European version.

The European version, oddly enough, has completely new music. It was written by the same sound team who did the tracks for the SNES version, resulting in similar music between the two.

The title screen music's loop is much longer in the European version.

The menu music is completely different.

Wario's Turn

Song 1 Song 2

The US and Japanese versions use song 1 and song 2 for Wario's turn in the Round Game and Time Race modes respectively. The European version swaps these two songs around, so song 2 is now used in the Round Game mode and song 1 is used in the Time Race mode.


The European version has a track that plays on the rankings menu, which is similar to a tune that appears in the SNES version. The Japanese and US versions just keep playing the main menu music.

Due to the music changes, two more sound composers are credited in the European version: Hiroaki Suga and Tadashi Ikegami, who also made the SNES version's soundtrack.
