Video Game: Wai Wai World
Wai Wai World, or Konami Wai Wai World, is a Massive Multiplayer Crossover of characters from Konami games released for the Famicom in 1988. The game has Konami Man and Konami Lady (the mascots for Konami at the time) travel through six selectable platform levels (each based on a different Konami game) to rescue the star of the game that the level is based on. After this finished, the player has to play a Unexpected Shmup Level then a linear last stage. The characters are:
- Konami Man and Konami Lady: Jack of All Stats characters that can fly if you find a cape Power-Up
- Goemon from Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Douchuu: He attacks with a tobacco pipe that allowed him to hit opponents, but cannot hit down. He can also open treasure chests.
- Simon Belmont III from Castlevania: He uses a whip that can attack farther, but is slower.
- Mikey from The Goonies: He is the smallest character, which allows him to in areas the bigger characters can't. However, he has a weak attack.
- King Kong from King Kong 2: Ikari no Megaton Punch: He has the strongest attack and can break through blocks. However, he is the heavy which will cause Floating Platforms to fall and cannot acess certain areas.
- Fuuma from Getsu Fuma Den: He can fire three shurinkens at once. Said shurinkens can break though destroyable blocks.
- Moai from Gradius: He uses a head butt attack that can break destroyable blocks and can take the most damage.
Examples found in Wai Wai World:
- Breakout Mook Character: Moai was originally an enemy from Gradius.
- Cross Over: Of Famicom Konami characters.
- Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: The last level has you fighting aliens.
- Improbable Weapon User: Goemon uses tobacco as a weapon.
- The Medic: Dr. Cinnamon (from the Twinbee games) will refill a character's energy bar.
- Planet Heck: Hell is a level in the first game.
- RPG Episode: One level of the second game is titled "Final Twinbee Quest Gaiden!?" The joke is that it's a TwinBee-like shmup level, but set in a stereotypical Eastern RPG World Map and dungeon.
- Unexpected Shmup Level: The first game has a shmup level towards the end, where the player is given the choice of flying either Vic Viper or TwinBee. The sequel has a short one in the middle of the first world and then later stages in the style of TwinBee and Gradius.
