Being a newcomer to the most popular fighting game in the world isn’t enough for Wario. He gets his very own event as well. Here are some tips to help Wario become triumphant in the Wario Bros. Event.
Wario will be traveling back in time to face off against a team composing of Mario and Luigi. The three plumbers are battling out in a stage where Mario and Luigi were born: the underground sewage of Mario Bros. Each fighter gets two stocks of life a piece. So you need to knock your opponents out four times before they knock you out twice.
Unlocking the Event
The Wario Bros. Event is the 19th event available. 7 of the first 10 events must be beaten in order to unlock it.
You will get the Mario Bros. Stage when you clear the Wario Bros. Event on any difficulty. The event is also needed to unlock Event #41.
Like in the Mario Bros. game, turtles and crabs (otherwise known as Shellcreeper and a Sidestepper) will come crawling out through the two pipes from the top towards the two pipes at the bottom.
Touching them will result in massive damage for you. You could use this to your advantage by flipping them over in order to grab and throw them at Mario and Luigi. This will result in an instant kill most of the time.
You have three ways to flip the crabs and turtles over: bump them from the floor below, bumping the POW block in the middle lower part of the stage or simply hit them (this is the easiest and most effective way). Make sure you grab them immediately after flipping them over; otherwise, they will flip back up and run crawl than before.
For safe spots, avoid the top and bottom levels of the stage. The level above the lowest one is probably the safest although the stage doesn’t really give you ay breathing room.
Mario and Luigi are faster and quicker than Wario. It’s best to avoid fighting them directly and focus on flipping and grabbing the crabs and turtles crawling all over the stage.
The Dragoon item appears in the Wario Bros. Event. It’s not really worth going around the stage and risk getting hit by your enemies and the little critters to get all three parts to activate it, however. Just grab one part of the Dragoon in order to prevent your opponents from using it.
Even in the hardest difficulty, Wario’s smash attacks are enough to get by the Wario Bros. Event since all you need is to throw the crabs and turtles to kill them instantly. Keep in mind that your opponent will do the same, so prepare to dodge them.
If you don’t want to use the crabs and turtles to your advantage, you can get near the left or right edge, grab your opponent and throw him off the stage for an easy kill.
The key to Wario Bros. Event is using the crabs and turtles to your advantage. It should be easy enough once you get the hang of it.
