The History of Wario
History Of Wario
My sources on this history of Wario is from the manuals Nintendo wrote
for the games, Wario Games, Nintendo Power Magizane, Rumors, and my own
mind trying to fill some gaps.
As a child, Wario was friends with Mario. The two children would play
together like any kids. Pulling beets in the garden (Where Wario always
some how always pulled up a Pirana Plant instead), flatten gold coins by
using thawmps (where Wario always seems to get Thawmped instead of the
coin), and worse of all to Wario: Playing Cowboys and Indians. He always
got stuck being the indian and having to lose to Mario who was the
cowboy (it's the rules of the game).
Years later after Mario had already started his Super Heroing and when
he was saving the Princess Daisy from a group of aliens, Wario went and
took over Mario's Castle (why Mario had a castle and where Wario was all
this time is still unknown). Wario had sealed the castle with the power
of six special golden coins and spread them through out the island that
this castle was on. Of course, Mario got those coins and kicked our
friend Wario out of Mario's reclaimed castle.
Wario, pissed off that his plan to take over Mario's castle failed, decided that he didn't need Mario's pathetic excuse for a
castle and that he could get a place much better by stealing a statue of
Princess Peach that the Kitchen Pirates stole and then he would be able to hold it
for ransom. Well, his plan almost worked. He beat the Kitchen Pirates
and just when he got his first sight of this huge golden statue of
Peach, Mario flew over in his Bi-Plane, grabed the statue, and flew off
with it (makes ya wonder who the real bad guy of this series is, doesn't
it?). Luckly, while on his quest for the statue, he picked up a bunch of
gold coins, and a few treasures, and a genie lamp. He rubed the lamp, gave
the big magical genie his money and treasures, and he got himself a
castle (or if you where really good a planet with his face on it, but
we'll say he got a castle. Goes better with the series...). Of course
Wario's greed didn't stop there.
After this happened, Wario went exploring around his new home and discovered
a very strange warp pipe. Not knowing where it went, he jumped in and
landed in the middle of a BomberMan city (yes, Hudson's BomberMan).
Seeing how wimpy looking the BomberMen looked, he thought it would be no
problem taking over their island single handed. Alas, looks can lie and
that here was the case. Wario was blown kicked off the island by a bunch
of BomberMen, even though they had a hard time getting rid of him.
With that plan destroyed, like the one before, and the one before that,
Wario took a little break and decided just to kick back and enjoy life
by getting a sea-plane he named BullDog, and to fly around. As he was
taking a break in front of a waterfall, he noticed some strange creatures
carrying treasure chests into the waterfall. Wario, being the kind of
guy he is, went behind the creatures and right when he was about to jump
them he noticed the huge treasure room where they kept all their
treasure. Just about when Wario was about to break into the vault and
get his hands on their stash the floor crumbled below him and he fell to
the bottom of the cave. Determined to get all that money, Wario rushed
off to find the treasures that unlocked the vault door and to get out of that
place. (The ending of this story shall be along shorty but to get us
along for now he gets out of here and back to his castle).
Since then, Wario was quiet for a while until he heard that the Mushroom
Kingdom was going to have Go-Kart races and tourneys soon. Over-joyed
with the thought of being able to show off in front of Mario, he filled
the requirements that the race called for by building his own stadium
and getting his own go-kart (Most of us think that he stole it from a
certain Koopa Troop clan member).
For now, this is where Wario is at in his life. Racing a stolen (most
likey stolen anyways) go-kart against two italain brothers, a peach
who's a princess, her servant, a yoshi, a big ape, and the leader of the
most feared clan in the Mushroom Kingdom. What does the future hold for
Wario? Not sure, but I'm sure it'll be great and I can't wait for his
next appearence and game.

Here's a little fact about Wario that I found out not too long ago:
The name Wario isn't just derived from the name Mario with the "M"
upside down. In Japanese, "Waru" actally translates to "evil". So,
Wario's name is actally a pun on the word "Waru". It just so happens
that the pun also fits the upside-down "M" idea.
