"HEY, LOOK HERE! IT'S-A-WARIO!" Combining a greatest-hits collection with a brand-new game, WarioWare Gold has more microgames than any other game in the series: a total of 316 of them, many of which come from previous entries in the series. It's also notable for having fully-voiced cutscenes in each language, with English speakers getting the privilege to hear Charles Martinet having the time of his life as Wario.

To do:
  • Unused graphics.
  • The Rhythm Tweezers microgame has an incomplete curly hair cue from the original game.
  • The early draft of Penny's cutscenes present in the game files, and whether or not any similar early versions of other cutscenes are present.


Version differences
Several differences exist between regions.

Unused Graphics

Nintendo Room


A dummy picture of Nintendo Hanafuda cards found in Toy/NintendoCollection/Texture/Nincolle_Dummy01.ctpk, and the other four dummy files in the same directory.

Bedside Manners


An image of Wario's body with a shirt on, arms clutching his stomach. The fact that this only exists for his skinny body on level 1 suggests it was scrapped rather early.

Crazy Cars


With all the other preview images for the microgames is a test image of this microgame, with possible debug text. Oddly enough, the bomb and its fuse are left in the corner of the image.

Crossing Guard


There is a seemingly unused version of Ashley's boss stage, with a different background and possible debug text found in the same set of images.

Pumping Iron


A different preview image with the text "Last one!" instead of "Only 1 left!".

Pumped Poser


The poser's body with a blue speedo and a gold one.


The example body with unused colors of speedos, only grey is used in the actual game.

Steel Chef


An unused orb-like object to slice.

Wario's Adventure

WWG Wario's Adventure treasure chest.png

A treasure chest, much like the one that appears in the GBA version of the microgame.

Unused sprites of Wario running.

Unused Music

Fine Tune

If you complete the microgame, you'll hear a bit of music on the radio before it cuts out. The songs are longer than what you can hear in-game and can be heard in their entirety by extracting them.

Sweeps Week

An unused, longer version of the music heard in the microgame, not heard anywhere in game. Interestingly, it is found with other full versions of songs featured in the minigames, implying that it was going to have one of its own.

Unused Cutscenes

To do:
Add proof the cutscene was/is being removed from YouTube by Nintendo

An unused, early version of Penny Crygor's story intro cutscene can be found in the game's files. This version uses hand-drawn graphics by the game's character designer Ko Takeuchi, complete with early designs for the Crygor lab in the background.

Interestingly, it seems someone at Nintendo doesn't like this cutscene being posted on YouTube since pretty much any upload there gets manually blocked worldwide.
