Final Smash Wario-Man


Wario is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. Wario is Mario's doppelganger and rival throughout the Super Mario games, stealing his own castle during the events of Super Mario Land. Wario is also portrayed as a greedy and selfish character, only caring about fulfilling his wishes of getting his own castle filled with gold and money.

Changes

Notice Wario's moveset and appearance has changed so he would be more Wario Land-esque than WarioWare-esque. His moveset is based on his moveset in Project M and he now wears a plumber outfit instead of his biker outfit, which is now one of his alternate costumes.

Notice Victory theme is now changed.

Notice Standard taunt is now one of his victory poses, which involves in him laughing uncontrollably while rolling over on his back on the floor. This taunt can be continued if the taunt button was held down.

Notice Has a new victory pose which replaces his "laughing" victory pose (which is now his standard taunt), Wario poses like he does in Wario Land 4, saying "Yes!".

Nerf New side smash, a kick forward, which despite having more reach, has more ending lag and deals less damage and knockback.

Buff New down smash, the Earthshake Punch from Wario Land: Shake It!, which deals more damage, has set knockback, can meteor smash and sets opponents up for a combo.

Buff New back aerial, a punch behind him. The move deals more damage and knockback despite having brief startup lag.

Nerf New up aerial, a double-handed poke above him, which is weaker and has less K.O potential.

Buff New down aerial, a ground-pound that meteor smashes.

Notice New pummel, the shake move from Wario Land: Shake It!..

Buff New forward throw, which can be charged by holding down the attack button for more knockback.

Buff New side special, his trademark Shoulder Bash from the Wario Land games, which has more K.O potential the farther he travels. He can also jump during the charge to catch aerial opponents.

Notice Grounded Wario Corkscrew acts similar to Donkey Kong’s Spinning Kong.

Buff Wario Waft charge is now quicker, fully charging at one and a half minute than just two minutes.

Notice Wario-Man's Wario Waft color is now purple.

Miscellaneous

Alternates

Credit goes to Mirai Moon (tbc) for most of the alternates, and credit goes to Pokerninja2 (tbc) for the striped alternate.

Unlike the previous installments, Wario has a striped palette swap similar to Mario and Luigi. Wario also has an alternate costume based on his biker outfit from the WarioWare games, along with five more alternates for it. This costume changes his side special to his former side special, Wario Bike.

Trivia

  • The reason why Wario had his moveset and appearance changed to be more Wario Land-esque was due to fan reception, as many felt like Wario was too WarioWare-esque in the Super Smash Bros. games.
