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.
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.
Victory theme is now changed.
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.
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!".
New side smash, a kick forward, which despite having more reach, has more ending lag and deals less damage and knockback.
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.
New back aerial, a punch behind him. The move deals more damage and knockback despite having brief startup lag.
New up aerial, a double-handed poke above him, which is weaker and has less K.O potential.
New down aerial, a ground-pound that meteor smashes.
New pummel, the shake move from Wario Land: Shake It!..
New forward throw, which can be charged by holding down the attack button for more knockback.
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.
Grounded Wario Corkscrew acts similar to Donkey Kong’s Spinning Kong.
Wario Waft charge is now quicker, fully charging at one and a half minute than just two minutes.
Wario-Man's Wario Waft color is now purple.

- 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.
