“So admit it..... Don't I look cool in the game screens? Those long, muscular legs on my sturdy toned frame.... I'm the perfect specimen of a man ..... What!?!? You say I look fat and my quadruple chin looks like a waterfall of flab? Shut up! That's just because you have your television set up on widescreen display!” —Wario, Wario World
Wario (Japanese: ワリオ, Wario) is the obese, yet surprisingly muscular, hot-tempered, greedy anti-hero, and Mario's yellow-and-purple clad rival. Wario's greed pushes him to commit malevolent acts, such as the seizing of Mario's Castle. Due to his money grubbing personality, he is disliked by many citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom. Wario has also proven to be very cunning as he has tricked Mario on more than a few occasions. He often goes out on his own adventures, from stealing treasure to running a minigame making company. Wario has helped heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom on a few separate occasions as well. His favorite food is garlic, but also loves cakes.
