Brawl's instruction manual

Wario Bike (ワリオバイク, Wario Bike), called Wario Chopper during earlier stages of development, is Wario's side special move. When performed, Wario hops on his motorcycle and can move faster on the ground. The bike can be used to ram into opponents, and as a throwable and destructible item after Wario dismounts. As such, it can be thrown by other players as an obstacle. It also affords Wario limited protection from attacks and stage hazards.

General[edit]

The bike's speed can be controlled depending on how much the player tilts the control stick. If the player taps Control Stick, the bike will travel at its fastest. Wario can dismount the bike voluntarily by pressing an attack button as well as being knocked off by another player's attack. To ride his bike again, he must get back on it by using the special move again while he's near it. If he's far away from it, or if the bike has been recently destroyed, using the special move will make Wario look around, trying to find his bike, and do nothing.

When Wario dismounts, other characters can pick up and throw the bike, including Wario. Only Wario can ride the bike, although another Wario can ride it and use it as his own. The bike can also be destroyed, eaten, or thrown offstage, but it can be respawned after enough time has passed. In Brawl, it will never despawn without player intervention, while in SSB4, it will fade after 24 seconds.

When the bike is on the stage by itself, it will block any projectile that comes its way, making it a situational defensive tool.

Control is essential to using the move efficiently. If the player moves too fast, they might drive off the stage. If they make a turn at too high a speed, Wario will fall off of the bike. Wario will always falls off the bike on the 4th turn, even if he is not knocked off by a rival.

Wario can jump off of his bike in mid-air, even if he has already used his double jump, and he will retain his double jump if he has not already used it. When Wario uses his bike in mid-air, and jumps right before the bike starts falling, the vertical boost is greater than that of his Corkscrew.

If the player presses up while Wario is riding his bike, he will do a wheelie, changing the hitbox's power and position, and allowing Wario to avoid things like Bananas and other "character-sensitive" traps such as the Motion-Sensor Bomb - save for the Pitfall, whose detection range is large enough to catch Wario and catapult him like a bronco with enough force for a one-hit KO. Doing a wheelie also gives Wario a higher dismount point. For example, if he wheelies through a low soft platform, he can immediately get off on the platform instead of the ground beneath it.

Wario is considered to be grounded while riding his bike on the ground. As a result, if the bike is on the ground but his body is overhanging an edge (for example, while turning), he can be hit by a ground-only unconventional meteor smash and unexpectedly knocked downwards.

If Wario is riding his bike in the air, he cannot control the speed, but can control the angle by pressing forward or backward.

As Wario-Man, the Wario Bike moves incredibly fast, even faster than a car in the Big Blue stage, and can inadvertently result in a self-destruct. This is actually the second fastest possible option of movement on the ground in Brawl (with Sonic wearing a Bunny Hood being the fastest, though Super Sonic can fly faster than the Wario-Man Bike).

In SSB4, Wario's bike has received some fairly significant changes. Besides being able to travel faster, Wario can make as many turns as he likes at any speed without ever being dismounted from the bike. He also has a new attack with the bike where he can "crush" his opponents with it to inflict massive damage. If Wario uses his wheelie and then lowers his bike onto his opponent, the resulting hit causes catastrophic knockback, capable of killing players at 80%. However, Wario can no longer dismount his bike during a wheelie, so it is best not to go off a ledge while initiating one (although the wheelie can be lowered in midair, allowing Wario to dismount). Hitting an opponent with a bike and then immediately using a wheelie creates a two-hit combo that can deal as much as 19% on unsuspecting enemies. Furthermore, Wario is now able to use his bike immediately after it is destroyed, with an orange blink flashing on Wario being a visual indicator that it has respawned. Additionally, a dismounted Wario Bike that is no longer on screen but has not crossed a blast line to despawn will automatically despawn after 24 seconds, granting Wario the use of the move again. Finally, if Wario dismounts his bike as it is moving forward, the bike will continue to advance and strike the other players, causing 3% of damage, effectively giving Wario an armored projectile. However, it only has a hitbox if Wario willingly dismounts from his bike rather than be hit off by an opponent.

Customization[edit]

Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:

1. Wario Bike 2. Speeding Bike 3. Burying Bike
WarioSide1-SSB4.png
WarioSide2-SSB4.png

"Ride around on a bike and crash into enemies. Takes some time to recharge." "The bike is faster and lighter, but it does less damage and falls apart easier." "The bike is slower and heavier. Run over enemies to bury them."
  1. Wario Bike: Default.
  2. Speeding Bike: The bike moves much faster, allowing for easier follow-ups after a successful hit. However, it deals slightly less damage but can't turn around, and can only take 5% of damage before breaking versus the 18% of the standard.
  3. Burying Bike: The bike is slower, but can now bury opponents that it runs into. It's also much more durable, being able to take a massive 40% damage before breaking.

Other notes[edit]

Wheels[edit]

If Wario's bike remains on the stage, other characters can damage the bike. After enough damage, the bike will be destroyed, but the front and back wheels will remain on the stage. Both of these can be used as throwable items by any character to do moderate damage and hitstun. The smaller front wheel is slightly weaker than the larger back wheel. The wheels will bounce after they hit something and can also roll around the stage. Throwing one downward will cause it to bounce several times, continuing to be an active hitbox while doing so. A tire will only hit the same person once before being re-activated by being picked up and thrown again. Though the wheels have very low knockback scaling and will never KO at realistic percentages, their bouncing property can be exploited to set up another attack or pressure the opponent's shield.

In Super Smash Bros. 4, Wario can no longer pick up broken bike parts to throw at his opponents. However, he can still eat them and even gain health and Waft charge.

Bike spike[edit]

A thrown bike will "bounce" atop the character it is thrown at and keep them down, often preventing them from making a recovery. If the helpless character keeps trying to recover and successfully recovers, it might rack up over 100% damage.

Stale moves[edit]

It should be noted that any attack made on the bike counts as an attack that has landed, and as such, it will be recorded in the game's move queue. The player can intentionally hit the bike with moves they don't care about to refresh moves that they use.

Also, the bike as a projectile counts as a move separate from the bike as an attack with Wario riding it. Furthermore, the bike and the tires that come from it are linked in move decay - landing an attack with the tires will decay the bike and vice versa.

Glitches[edit]

There are several glitches related to Wario Bike.

Trophies[edit]

Brawl[edit]

Wario Bike trophy in Brawl.

A motorcycle specially designed for Wario by Dr. Crygor, an employee at WarioWare, Inc. This monster bike has an amazing 5,000cc, 4-stroke, 350HP engine capable of pushing it down the road at up to 217 miles per hour. Of course, this road hog is also a fuel hog and gets less than 5 miles to the gallon. Getting the pegs in the right position for Wario's short legs was difficult.

North America A ridiculously powerful motorcycle designed for Wario by Dr. Crygor, this mean machine sports wide handles and raised pedals to accommodate Wario's unique dimensions. Summoned into battle as his side special attack, even Wario can have trouble keeping this thing upright at times.

Europe A motorbike made for Wario by genius scientist Dr. Crygor. At 2.7m in length, with wide handles and raised pedals, it's perfect for Wario! The bike will appear when you use Wario's side special move, but you'd better know how to do it properly or you might end up flipping over, and that would just be embarrassing...

GB Advance: WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgame$! (05/2003)
Wii: Mario Kart Wii (04/2008)

Origin[edit]

The Wario Bike first appeared in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! for the Game Boy Advance (prior to that, a similar motorbike appeared as one of Wario's presents in Mario Party 4 and Wario drove a bike in some levels of Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman!). In the introduction and during Wario's microgames, he is seen riding the aforementioned motorbike. This quickly became a staple part of Wario's new biker persona and has subsequently featured in almost every title in the WarioWare series. It has also appeared as a vehicle for large characters in Mario Kart Wii.

Trivia[edit]

  • While riding on his bike, Wario can completely prevent himself from falling asleep during Peach's Final Smash.
  • If Captain Falcon's Final Smash is used on Wario just as he gets on to his Bike without knocking him out, the bike remains on the stage stood up as though Wario were about to climb on, but invisible. It is not known what causes this. Wario cannot use his Bike unless he is standing next to the invisible one (at which point it becomes visible) or destroys it.
  • If the player grabs a Super Mushroom while playing a Giant Brawl as Wario on Temple, he will grow massive. If they try to use Wario Bike while enlarged in the middle area (where they can grab the ledge, between a slab of rock where they can head down), Wario's bike will enter a very strange animation. It may glitch if the player returns to normal while doing this.
  • Wario is immune to the upper blast line while riding his bike.[1] This is also carries over to SSB4.
  • The flames seen on his bike have never been seen in any other Mario or Wario game.
  • In SSB4, Wario cannot enter the All-Star Rest Area teleporter while riding as it holds him too far above the ground.
  • Barring his Final Smash, the Wario Bike and the Chomp are Wario's only special attacks in the Super Smash Bros. series originating from Wario games.
  • In SSB4, the Wario Bike cannot break into smaller, throwable projectiles. Despite this, the Tips section in both the 3DS and Wii U versions states that it can.
  • The 3DS trophy for the Wario Bike suggests that one could flip the bike over if it were handled incorrectly. While this was the case in Brawl, this is no longer the case in SSB4 as Wario can turn and manipulate the bike in any fashion (aside from ramming it into a wall) without turning it over.
