Wario Land: Legends of 6 Crystals is a Wario Land fangame created by Radel999 (or HTFMegaman), the same person who made the Happy Tree Friends Adventures series.

The story begins with Wario going on a journey using his airplane, only for a rainbow-colored beam to hit him and causing him to crash land on an island. There, he's greeted by a girl named Kia, who somehow knows Wario's name. She tells him that the beam came from Equestria, a place that the island residents, including Kia, absolutely loathe and despise. Kia then asks him to kill the ruler, Princess Celestia, or the whole world will be destroyed by her.

Yeah... that's how the plot goes. Yes, it's a Crossover fangame just like Happy Tree Friends Adventures.

Like the official Wario Land games, this game is a platformer. Wario can use a variety of attacks depending on what power-up he's equipping. He starts with "Punch", which makes him charge forward. Other power-ups allow him to either throw bombs, shoot fireballs, or fly through the air. The only other "non-power-up"-based attacks are his Goomba Stomp and Ground Pound. Seeing that it's set in Equestria, your enemies are mostly colorful ponies, as well as some non-Equestrian oddities like Cheep-Cheeps and Spinies.

The game is divided into six stages, each having 4-7 courses, with the last course always ending with a boss battle. The stages can be re-visited by making use of Password Save.

While it's mainly centered around Wario and the residents of Equestria, it has a few references to other franchises as well as a few guest appearances.

A sequel is planned to be made, but it's currently probably stuck in Development Hell along with other upcoming Dunami games.

Radel 999 actually uploaded this game to a few sites, but some sites like Hotfile are taken down, one site doesn't seem to be trustworthy, and the one in MFGG is only the early demo version. That leaves only MediaFire as his only "perfect" place (for now, probably) to upload his projects. You can download the game here.

This game provides examples of:

  • 1-Up: You can only gain extra lives by picking up a "1UP heart" that flashes between different colors (regular red hearts restore health).
  • Abnormal Ammo:
    • Pinkie Pie's means of attacking you involve throwing gumballs.
    • Apple Bloom throws apples when you approach her.
  • Acrofatic: It's a platformer starring Wario, so of course he has this trait.
  • Autoscrolling Level: A few levels from this game are considered this.
  • Balloonacy: During her boss battle, Pinkie Pie is lifted by balloons, allowing her to float around her boss room.
  • Big Bad: Princess Celestia is the ruler of Equestria who wants to destroy the world, so Wario must stop her.
  • Big Fancy Castle: The second stage, Rarity's Hidden Castle. Celestia's castle in the last stage also counts.
  • Bland-Name Product: Like Happy Tree Friends Adventures, this game also comes under the "Dunami" brand.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: As mentioned in the Happy Tree Friends Adventures page, Radel 999 is Polish and isn't really good at English language, so the many typos and grammar mistakes in this game are expected. However, some parts of the game's dialogue somehow have better grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. It is possible that somebody else wrote those specific lines, while the rest still has hilariously broken English.
  • The Cameo:
    • Derpy Hooves can be seen in certain levels at certain parts, flying fast across the bottom part of those levels. Like the other ponies, you can kill her, but it's easier said than done considering her speed and position, meaning that she'll only appear for a brief moment and you need a near-perfect timing. See the Secret Level entry below for more info.
    • Scorpion of Mortal Kombat fame, while not physically seen, has his spear thrown once you've reduced Fluttershy's health into nothing. He also yells out, "GET OVER HERE!" as he pulls the stabbed Fluttershy.
  • Captain Ersatz: The Bullet Bills and Bill Blasters are edited to make them somehow "belong" to Equestria... by removing the Bullet Bill's arms and replacing the skull on Bill Blasters with a pony head.
  • Cardboard Prison: After getting trapped by Celestia in the penultimate stage, Wario is taken to a castle-like prison. When you begin that part, you can simply bust out by breaking a breakable wall on the right side of the room.
  • Cue the Sun: The credits roll features Wario riding his now-repaired airplane as the sun rises.
  • Damsel in Distress: From the introduction cutscene, Kia is taken away by Celestia just before you can begin your adventure. However, it turns out that she isn't the only one to be captured by Celestia- Suzette is as well.
  • Dash Attack: Wario's "Punch" attack allows him to run and charge through enemies.
  • Death from Above:
    • Apples fall down when Applejack lands on either side of her boss room. Yes, these apples hurt Wario, and yes, these can be attacked to get rid of them.
    • Rarity's colored beams are shot downwards, as she's placed on the top of the boss room.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: The pony bosses explode when they are defeated.
  • Distressed Dude: [[Spoiler:Bowser]] is being held captive by Pinkie Pie.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Inverted according to the island residents and Celestia's hostages. Also, colored beams hurt Wario.
  • Falling Damage:
    • Happens to Pinkie Pie if the balloons holding her are popped, which causes her to fall.
    • Two stages before Pinkie's, you have to get Rarity to fall down into a pool of lava by removing the bridge underneath her (using the switches on either side of the boss room) in order to inflict damage.
  • Flash of Pain: Whenever the boss gets hurt.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Princess Celestia and the other ponies have kidnapped Suzette and Bowser and want to destroy the world. Why they want to do this is never explained, and they never speak a word.
  • Goomba Stomp: Wario can do this to most enemies.
  • Levels Take Flight: The boss fight section against Rainbow Dash takes place at a dark cloudy sky where Wario is limited to flying and shooting fireballs (the latter due to the forced power-up pick up).
  • Light 'em Up: Twilight Sparkle and Celestia both attack by firing shots made of light. The shots can split into two when they hit the ground.
  • Light Is Not Good: The ponies, with their light color palate, are the villains in this fangame.
  • Locomotive Level: The final course of Parasprite Lake takes place at the top of a train.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Some of the boss characters explode into a bloody mess after being defeated.
  • Misplaced Wildlife: The Cheep-Cheeps and Spinies are somehow in Equestria.
  • Musical Nod: Like other Dunami games, this game's soundtrack consists of music from other video games.
  • Nintendo Hard: The difficulty comes from tricky platforming in certain parts and from certain boss battles.
  • Non-Indicative Name:
    • One of the stages, Parasprite Lake, has no parasprites to be seen.
    • Wario's charging attack is named "Punch".
  • One-Man Army: Even after rescuing Suzette and Bowser, Wario is still capable of taking down the entire population of Equestria all by himself.
  • Playing with Fire: Wario's "Fire" power-up allows him to shoot fireballs at a straight line. Unlike the bombs, you can fire several fireballs at a time instead of just one.
  • Scoring Points: You gain points from picking up gems and defeating enemies.
  • Secret Level:
    • By killing Derpy Hooves, who can only be found in certain courses at a certain part each, you'll get to access a hidden level. There are two of them, in fact. Seemed Guide Dang It!-ty at first, but became All There in the Manual as Radel 999 blatantly put such hint on The Daily Click website. Both levels replace the respective franchise's enemies with ponies.:
    • The first one is simply World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. Unfortunately, none of the familiar mechanics are there (hitting ? blocks, going down a pipe), even simply breaking the bricks, even though you can do the same to the bigger blocks of bricks in the main levels.
    • The second hidden level is the jungle level from Contra.
  • Shock and Awe: Rainbow Dash shoots small bolts of lightning during her boss battle.
  • Shout-Out:
  • The Spiny: The Spinies from Super Mario Bros. appear as enemies.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Wario's "Bomb" power-up allows him to throw bombs at an arc, only one at a time. The bomb can also be bounced on Wario's head to make it travel farther.
  • Sugar Bowl: Equestria, of course, if you don't mind the Bowser-esque castles.
  • Unwinnable: If your computer isn't fast enough, the lag can slow Wario down whenever you activate his "Fly" ability. As Wario flies for a set amount of time, the lag can make it impossible for you to reach the farther safe ground.
  • Take That!: The entire game is a Take That! to My Little Pony, particularly the fourth generation a.k.a. MLP:FiM.
  • Traintop Battle: The fight against Fluttershy.
  • Victory Pose: Wario does this whenever he finishes a level.
  • Villain Protagonist: You are the evil Wario, who is tasked to kill Princess Celestia, who doesn't seem to have much threat other than capturing people who plan to threaten Equestria. Other characters on your side, aside from Kia who clearly wants the ponies dead, include Suzette the Happy Tree Friends fan character (coming from an extremely violent show, it does clash with MLP despite the cutesy look; also, Radel 999 is a HTF fan and a MLP hater) and Bowser.
