First Appearance: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Most Notable Appearance: Wario World
Wario is a greedy individual whose only goal in life is to accumulate wealth. Laziness is just one of his traits. He is also considered to be ruthless and fierce. He is the complete opposite of Mario in the sense that he only cares about himself and is motivated to help someone only if it coincides with his goals. He’s more of an anti-hero than an actual villain.
Wario has not always been the antagonist in the video games he has appeared in. At times he has joined forces with Mario to defeat a common enemy. This is surprising giving the fact that he was bullied by Mario during their childhood……wait what?!?! Wario has appeared in a lot of video games throughout the years. Accumulating treasure, wealth, and a ton of garlic he has been classified as a foul individual mainly because of his love for garlic…..yucky.
In Wario World his castle was taken over by an evil gem & he had to fight the monsters within to restore the castle to its previous state. I guess you could say that Wario invited these circumstances upon himself. While treasure, golden coins, and beautiful gems are great things to have, its not always great to have them. Maybe this anti-hero would be cooler if he just had a few more friends….the right kind of friends.
