Trivia / Wario

  • Fan Nickname: While Wario's signature Foe-Tossing Charge has had many official names given to it over the years, one of them is not "Shoulder Bash". Despite this, it’s the one most used by fans and even non-fans to refer to the move.
  • Fandom Life Cycle: Strangely, despite being a sub-franchise of the media giant that is Mario, the Wario franchise has hovered between Stages 1 and 2. Despite many of the games selling at least a million copies, the series' fandom is rather disjointed, barely scraping cult status. Theories as to why this is range from the fact that Wario's Anti-Hero isn't quite as marketable as the friendlier Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, or Donkey Kong, or the fact that Wario's franchise is uncharacteristically disjointed, as not only do the Mario spinoffs, Wario Land, and WarioWare not share any characters, Wario almost feels like three different characters in these series. The constant long gaps between new releases is also a likely factor.

  • Word of Saint Paul: One of Wario's voice actors, Thomas Spindler, confirmed that one of Wario's Catch Phrases is "So ein Mist"note , not "D'oh, I missed!".
