* AbortedArc: Well, as much as a series like ''[=WarioWare=]'' can have an "arc". The ExcusePlot of ''D.I.Y'' establish that half of Wario's employees left him to work for a competitor named Diamond Software, which is why he hires the player as a game-creator. ''Game & Wario'' completely ignores this, as everyone is back to working with Wario.

** Averted in the Sheriff microgame in 9-Volt's level in the first Wario Ware. Even if you get hit after shooting two enemies, it won't count as a loss against you.

* RandomEventsPlot: The series is random events distilled into a game. It works on three levels: On the smallest scale are the hundreds of 4-second games the gameplay is made up of, each of which are connected only by art style or by basic gameplay mechanic, and from the second playthrough and onwards, appear in random order. Next up are each chapter in the game, which have different characters acting independently of each other, which themselves are sometimes non-sequiturs (in the same game, for instance, you have a pizza delivery girl with animal sidekicks shooting soccer balls; and then later you have a mad scientist building a karaoke robot to do janitorial work). At the highest level is the series itself, where not only is there some level of Negative Continuity (along with some real continuity—it's confusing), every game in the series to date has used a radically different control gimmick.

* PottyEmergency: The FramingDevice for Wario-Man's stage in ''D.I.Y. Showcase'' is Wario-Man coming across a series of people trying to get into restrooms, only for the shoddy door handles to keep them from easily getting the door open. Your goal: complete a microgame to have Wario-Man successfully pull the door open for them.

* ShoutOut:
** 9-Volt's Stages in every single game he's in, and ditto for 18-Volt in DIY Showcase. But there's sometimes a Mario reference outside of 9-Volt's stages.
** In Wario's first stage of ''Twisted!'', the music box from ''Wario Land 3'' is visible on a shelf behind the watch.
** One of the games in ''Smooth Moves'' has you shooting cans off of a fence. One of those cans is [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Crab Juice]].
** Orbulon's space bunnies also appeared in ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven''.
** ''D.I.Y.'''s graphic editor is highly reminiscent of ''VideoGame/MarioPaint'', and its music editor has many samples from the same. Some of the microgames also make references to it in the form of the man doing sit-ups and one in ''Touched!'' where the objective is to color in a picture.
*** The ''Mario Paint'' music EasterEgg in ''D.I.Y.'' [[spoiler:(activated by renaming your microgame to "Mario Paint" and then opening the graphic editor)]] further drives the point home.
** The Kat and Ana stage in ''Smooth Moves'' has [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles a quartet of turtles]] representing the player's lives.
** Jimmy P. in ''Smooth Moves'' bears an uncanny resemblance to [[{{Manga/Bobobobobobobo}} Bobobo]].
** The Samurai from ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'' is in one of the fish-slicing microgames in ''Game & Wario'' (and as an added bonus, his microgame is rhythm-based), as well as the Wrestler and several other characters from the series make cameos. Most notably in the ending credits which at that point the player may not have even known they were in the game.

The ''[=WarioWare=]'' series is essentially a collection of hundreds of mini-games. And the gold-hoarding, gas-cloud-belching VideoGame/{{Wario}} is in charge of it all, aided by a cast of wacky friends and neighbors.

** A few of the medals in ''D.I.Y.'' require entering microgame design contests that were periodically held by Nintendo. Nintendo no longer holds these contests, so if you hadn't already gotten the medals for them you can now no longer obtain them. Thankfully, it's still possible to get all the records even without these medals. The same, of course, goes for the microgames that won those contests. Even while they were running, you could only access the two most recent contest sets at a time to download their microgames. Now, you can't get any of them, unless you can get them from other players.
** Because most of the online services for the Wii and DS (aside from the Wii Shop Channel and the like) have been shut down, the online-related medals can't be unlocked anymore, meaning that not all records can be unlocked on one save file. Fortunately, there's a way around this as well: because the records you obtain from medals are semi-randomized, you can obtain the ones you lack from a friend or relative. If all you care about are the music on the records and not having the full collection in your game under the built-in section, you could also copy the music from the records you could get into new records in the music maker, send said records to DIY Showcase, then restart your game and get new ones.
