5-Volt (ファイブワット, 5-Watt) is a character from the Wario universe, making her debut in WarioWare: Twisted.
5-Volt is the mother of recurring WarioWare character 9-Volt. In the Gamer minigame in Game & Wario, she fiercely watches her son as he tries to play video games after his bedtime, and the player (as 9-Volt) must alternate between playing microgames on the Wii U GamePad and hiding from 5-Volt. Her means of approach from Game & Wario are retained in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, such as appearing from the door, the window, and the TV; the appropriate sound cues are also retained if the music track Gamer is playing. Game & Wario makes a point of claiming that 5-Volt's representation in Gamer is strictly 9-Volt's imagination.
As a stage hazard
5-Volt is a major stage hazard on the Gamer stage, reprising her function from the source minigame in Game & Wario. She will occasionally appear in the background of the stage, looming ominously and casting her gaze upon the desk which serves as the stage. Any characters caught in her line of sight when it reaches the desk will be hit with heavy damage and knockback as she flies into a rage.
A sticker depicting 5-Volt can also randomly appear as a stage decoration.
Wario and friends' newest selection of minigames are all designed to be played with the Wii U GamePad. In Gamer, you take on the role of young 9-Volt, playing a selection of microgames in bed at night. When his mom pops her head in, you'd better pretend to be asleep. If she catches you playing, it's game over!

5-Volt reprises her role on the Gamer stage, still using her design from Game & Wario. However, the sticker of her that can appear on the desk is updated to her character art from WarioWare Gold.
