The WarioWare series has many Animal Crossing series references.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves

WarioWare: Smooth Moves is the first WarioWare title for the Nintendo Wii.

Wild World Minigame


The WarioWare mini-game

During the 9-Volt level in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, one mini-game involves the player controlling a Wild World character (either a male or female, depending upon the player's gender). The player must pull up the Wii remote in order to catch a fish from the river. There are three difficulty stages to this game-

  • Easy There is one fish in the river.
  • Intermediate There is one fish in the river that takes a long time to tug on the bait.
  • Hard There are two fish in the river.

All fish from Wild World are potential catches in this minigame. Failure to pull up the fishing rod will result in the player losing a life.

Inconsistencies with Wild World

Despite being a very obvious reference to Wild World, there are a number of inconsistencies with the game such as-

  • Fish that cannot be found in rivers may be caught, one example being the Football Fish.
  • Lilies can be seen in the river; this is an Animal Crossing-only feature, and is not present in Wild World.
  • The male character's hat has green horns that match the pattern of the hat- no matter the pattern in Wild World, the horns will always be gray.
  • Every time the game is played, the fish pulls down the bobber immediately. Although this can happen in-game, it is very unusual, and certainly does not happen all the time.
  • The music playing in the background is from Animal Crossing.
  • When the fish is caught, a generic "success" noise is played, rather than the Animal Crossing "success" noise.

'Silhouette' Minigame

In one minigame, in the Ashley level, a player has to rotate a silhouette of an object in order to work out what the object is- after a time, they are given a selection of objects that it could potentially be, usually all quite similar in shape.

Sometimes, a thin version of the typical gyroid may show up- objects similar to it in shape include a cacti and an eraser.

WarioWare: D.I.Y.

WarioWare: D.I.Y. is a unique game, in which the player can create their own games, records, and comics. It is the latest WarioWare game.
