When Wario uses this move, he takes a bite of garlic and turns into Wario-Man while shouting "HERE I GO!". The transformation is somewhat similar to Bowser's. During the final smash, all of his moves are upgraded greatly, being extremely fast and strong. He moves a lot faster, deals more damage and knockback, and is virtually invincible, though he can still be hurt by eating bombs.
Also, his aerial attacks except his down-air cause him to gain altitude without entering helpless mode, giving him unlimited recovery. However, since his aerials make him gain altitude in a set path, an effective Wall of Pain is not possible. All of his aerials can be strung together for a rather ridiculous-looking upward movement.
A fully charged Wario Waft is a One-hit KO as Wario-Man, though the half charge one is unaffected. His bike becomes so fast that it can outrun the cars in Big Blue, and must be jumped off almost immediately to avoid killing himself on smaller stages.
Inexperienced opponents, especially those using flying characters like Pit, tend to fly near the top of the screen whenever a Final Smash is set off. Against Wario-Man, this is virtually suicide, as he can fly up to them and knock them right off the top of the screen with his Up-air.
The transformation lasts around 18 seconds.
- Neutral A - Throws two punches. Can be used multiple times in a row to quickly rack up damage. 4% each punch.
- Dash A - Falls down, hitting foes while sliding, then quickly gets up. 12%.
- Strong Forward - Throws a sucker punch. 16% normally, 15% tilted downward, 17% tilted upward. Can be used in rapid successions.
- Strong Up - Raises his open hands in the air. 15%.
- Strong Down - Points his hand at a downward angle. Will semi-spike. 9%.
- Forward Smash - Slams his side forward, sliding a huge distance while doing so. Dangerous in stages without ledges. 16% uncharged, 22% fully charged.
- Up Smash - His head grows large, and he spins around, his head gradually reducing to normal size. This creates a vacuum effect. 5 hits of 2%, then 15% (for a max of 25%) uncharged, one hit of 2%, 4 hits of 3%, then 21% (for a max of 35%) fully charged.
- Down Smash - Spins around on his back. 18% uncharged, 25% fully charged.
- Ledge Attack - Climbs up, rolls upside down, and throws his fists behind him. 10%.
- 100% Ledge Attack - Slowly climbs up and pokes a finger forward. 10%.
All of Wario-Man's aerial attacks send him upward a bit except his Down Air.
- Neutral Aerial - Spins around with his arms stretched out. 15%.
- Forward Aerial - Pokes foot forward very quickly. Sends him forward a slight amount.
- Back Aerial - Reclines his head backward, semi-powerfully. Sends him backwards a slight amount, sends him upwards a small amount... rather awkwardly.
- Up Aerial - Claps his hand together above him. Powerful and quick. Can be chained into another up aerial at low percentages. Sends him upwards a slight amount.
- Down Aerial - Receives Meteor Smash properties, though Wario himself will also fly downwards, making self destructs common. This can be avoided by performing any other air as soon as possible after the down air.
- Chomp: Can do more bites per second than regular Wario and the throw has high knockback.
- Wario Bike: Goes dangerously fast, so it should be used carefully. The bike does 27% damage with amazing knockback.
- Corkscrew: Goes higher than regular Wario one. Hits one or two times with electrical effects, both hits have high knockback.
- Wario Waft: Charges much faster than the regular Wario one. Uncharged Wario Waft stuns opponents. Fully charged does 50% with One-hit KO potential and the half charged Wario Waft remains unchanged. He can still self destruct if using a fully charged Wario Waft near the top of the screen though.
Grabs and Throws
- Pummel -
- Forward Throw -A far stronger version of regular Wario's forward throw with less vertical knockback.
- Back Throw -
- Up Throw -
- Down Throw -Same as Wario but puts in a downed status and the opponent is still in front of Wario-man. If used against an opponent next to a stage ledge, the opponent is powerfully meteor smashed (this is easier to do if Wario-man is facing into the stage).

Wario's Final Smash. He chomps on his favorite food, garlic, and transforms into Wario-Man! His mobility goes way up. His attack power doesn't change much, but he scampers like a cockroach, using moves like crazy! He can jump over buildings and use midair attacks to fly. Oh, and he doesn't flinch from attacks. Think twice about bringing out his motorcycle at this time...
Wario-Man originates from WarioWare Twisted and WarioWare Touched, appearing as the alter-ego for Wario. In both games, once the player has beaten all of the microgame compilations from the other characters, a cut-scene ensues with Wario consuming a rotten piece of garlic and subsequently transforming into Wario-Man. This "new character" then appears on the main menu with a brand new set of microgames available to attempt. Wario-Man's games were the last of its kind both times and therefore they were more challenging than the preceding games.
In the cut-scenes before and after his microgames, Wario-Man exhibits some kind of superhuman abilities; however, his increases in speed, strength and the capability of flight in Brawl is more likely derived from typical superhero/super-villain powers in general comic books and other media.
- Wario-Man can die in Stamina Mode, causing an Undead Glitch to occur.
- Wario-Man, just like regular Wario, can self-destruct by using a fully charged Wario Waft near the top of the screen.
- If Wario-Man does a Corkscrew and then transforms back into Wario in mid-air, it's possible to Corkscrew a second time without touching the ground.
- It is interesting to note that while Wario wears the Franklin Badge and Screw Attack on his nose, Wario-Man wears them on his stomach.
- If Wario-Man transforms back into Wario while wielding a Hammer or a Golden Hammer, the Hammer will restart its process over again, allowing the player to double the amount of time they can use the hammer. Although occasionally, because the process restarts itself, you may end up getting a headless hammer or a squeaky Golden Hammer afterwards.
- If Wario-Man is star KOd in a stock match and loses his last life, and transforms back before he "pings", the transformation "circle" will not disappear.
- Wario-man can fly past the Blast line, unlike other characters. If Wario-Man continuously flies upwards and transforms back to Wario, he will fall for a rather long time. However, he can die from using Wario Waft.
- Although Wario-man is invincible, he will still take Hoop damage.
- Wario-Man's Wario Waft also charges considerably faster, but not by much.
- Wario-Man is affected by the effects of both Super Mushrooms and Poison Mushrooms, but he is unaffected by Metal Boxes.
- Wario-Man is available as a separate character through hacking, although when he dies, he just turns back into Wario. At the end of a match, the game will freeze if he has not turned back into Wario due to having no results screen animations. Once turned back into Wario, he will play as normal and cannot re-transform unless using the Final Smash which will still be temporary.
- In Wario Ware: Touched!, Wario-Man transforms back into Wario by eating a Wario Bomb, and eats a "funky" garlic to become Wario-Man, rather than eating normal garlic to transform.
- Although Wario Man does not suffer any knockback or damage in his form, he can be KOd by the Isaac assist trophy.
- In Wario's alter-ego's first appearance his moustache was red (or possibly pink as his nose was the same colour), but in every subsequent game his moustache has been black.
- Wario-Man can perform any Hyrule Jump (including a full one), given the nature of his aerials.
- For whatever reason, the speed multiplier of Training Mode does not affect how long (in real time) Wario-Man lasts.
- Wario-Man is able to fly upwards infinitely by using his upward aerial quickly and repeatedly.
- When Wario-Man charges his smashes, they will make a different noise to regular Warios charging noise for his smashes.
