Wario is a malicious, often dastardly rival of Mario. Since his first appearance in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Gold Coins, he and his brother Waluigi stir up trouble in the Mushroom Kingdom, like taking over castles and tricking the Mario Bros.
On rare occasions though, Wario isn't trying anything evil, such as in the Mario Kart races. He is first a Heavy weight racer in the 2nd game (Mario Kart 64), and has since then been in every following installment, including Mario Kart Wii. Although Wario is supposed to be playing fair in kart races, he has a tendency to mock and intimidate other players, like calling the "loser" in Mario Kart Wii... he can be very cruel...
CharacteristicsWario is a lot fatter than Mario, and his signature colors are yellow and purple. His mustache is long and zig-zagging, and he has a large pink nose and pointy ears. He wears white gloves, purple overalls, a yellow undershirt, and a yellow cap with a "W" initial at the front. Wario also wears spiky green shoes.
Wario is some sort of 'bad' version of Mario. His name even means bad In Japanese. He first appeared in Super Mario Land 2 as a boss.
He's acquired so much treasure from his previous hunting exploits and mini-games that he's started mining his own crazy roller-coaster of a gold mine. He resides at the Mushroom Kingdom with Mario and friends. He has been the main character of a few games, including Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land, Wario Land 2, Wario Land 3, Wario Land 4, the WarioWare series, Wario World, and Wario Land: Shake It!.
