WarioWare: Smooth Moves is the fifth game of the WarioWare series, released in December of 2006 in Japan and in May of 2007 in the rest of the world following its development by Nintendo and Intelligent Systems. As one of only two WarioWare installments for the Wii (Next to WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase, which was a WiiWare game), the game uses the Wii's motion controls extensively.


"Mysterious Form Baton Found!"[]

One day, Wario is sitting at home eating a plate of cakes when a small, strange creature called Splunk appears from nowhere and steals them from right under his nose. Upon realizing that his food is missing and spotting the thief, Wario gives chase, leading him all the way to the Temple of Form where he discovers the Form Baton. Picking up the strange item out of curiosity, Wario accidentally triggers a trap in the form of a giant boulder that proceeds to chase him out of the temple.

During the game, Wario is seen running from the massive boulder. Each time a minigame is failed the boulder will inch closer to him, and when all four of his health icons (in the form of garlic cloves) disappear, it will run over him. However, if the player wins a microgame, the boulder will momentarily get stuck in a hole in the wall causing Wario to run further ahead of it.

When the level is completed, Wario will outrun the boulder and escape with his new treasure, which he gloats about as soon as he catches his breath.

Cheerleading to Victory[]

Mona is shown speeding down the roads of Diamond City, late for her new job as the captain of the cheerleading squad for the Diamond City Roughs, and she drives her scooter straight into the stadium. Mona is then shown performing her routine, along with the other cheerleaders, which distracted one of the players (who happened to be in love with Mona) for a moment.

When there were only a few seconds left in the game, the player who is love with Mona catches the ball and uses his love for her to motivate himself to barge pass three opposing players and score a touchdown. After the game, the player attempts to confess his love for Mona, but she rushes off before he can finish his sentence, leaving him to accidentally blurt it out in front of another cheerleader.

Evil Attacks Diamond Dojo![]

A huge red monster with a spiked club appears at Diamond Dojo and roars viciously. Kat and Ana run to the scene and split up. Ana goes inside the dojo to perform ninjutsu and turns into four turtles, which act as the level’s four lives.

Ana runs into The Sensei's room and finds a small red creature tugging on his hair. Outside, Kat uses clone powers and attacks the giant monster. In the middle of the battle the small creature yells and stops the fighting — it is the giant’s child. As the giant carries away its child, Kat waves goodbye and tells it not to wander off again. But right next to her the child responds saying "Never again"; it’s then revealed that Ana was mistaken for the child and taken away by the giant.

Enter Young Cricket[]

Young Cricket and Master Mantis are walking down a road, when suddenly they realize they're hungry. They smell dumplings at a nearby stand with a long line. Young Cricket then runs across the tops of everyone's heads to get to the front of the line.

When Young Cricket reaches the front, he looks over his shoulder and notices all the people in line with a bump on their heads, glaring at him. He then apologizes and runs back across everybody's heads, telling Master Mantis that they should wait in line.

Feline Fever[]

Jimmy T. is walking down a rainy street with an umbrella when he sees a cat behind a trash can. He puts the umbrella beside the can to protect the cat from the weather. He continues walking when the cat starts walking next to him. Many more cats follow him and Jimmy attempts to avoid them, only for them to move in his direction. He then starts to dance, causing the cats to start dancing too, ending with them all going into Club Sugar.

At the crack of dawn, the cats leave the club in a line (with Jimmy at the back, following them), waving goodbye. The original cat then touches his shoulder and gives him back the red umbrella.

The Loquacious Spell Book[]

Ashley and Red are reading a spell book on how to make a monstrous plant creature. Red turns into a magic wand and Ashley casts a spell at a potted plant. The only result is a small flower blooming, much to her displeasure. The Loquacious spell book approaches her and says it has an idea.

Ashley finds the proper spell and blasts another potted plant with magic. It quickly grows vines and forms a massive rose petal with a mouth, becoming so large it breaks through the roof of Ashley's mansion. She is seen standing in front of the huge monster while Red is cowering behind her, and she smiles.

Tomorrow Hill[]

As Dribble and Spitz are washing their taxi, a woman in a large sun hat comes over and asks for a ride. When questioned where to go she simply says “Tomorrow Hill”. Dribble then revs up the car and starts the trip.

When they reach the destination, the woman starts walking up the hill while Dribble and Spitz watch. Suddenly a UFO appears and she turns into an alien. The alien waves goodbye to the shocked duo as the ship flies away in a burst of light. When it leaves, the woman/alien’s sun hat falls on Dribbles head, before Spitz realizes she didn't pay the fare.

The Invent-Off[]

At Diamond Academy Penny gets ready for the invent-off. At the match her grandfather Dr. Crygor and Mike is waiting for her. The event takes place in a wrestling styled ring with a crowd of what looks like a group of Mr. Game and Watches.

Penny then reveals a small pink motorcycle with Wario's trademark nose and mustache on the front. However, for some reason, Dr. Crygor is attacked causing him to hit the ground, and Penny wins. Then she takes one of Mike's microphones and everyone starts dancing.

The Multiplayer Test[]

Here, 9-Volt shows 18-Volt his new Dual Screen Game and Watch (18-Volt mistakes it for a DS, due to their similarity in design). 18-Volt watches 9-Volt play the Game and Watch, before deciding that he wants to play and they start to fight over it, causing it to break. Now enraged, 9-Volt then kicks 18-Volt out of his house. He then sees a stand selling Game and Watches and the game starts.

The game screen is the cashier showing the ? Block from the Mario Games when the player wins the microgame. The lives are the kids in line, and the number of microgames is on the cash register.

Once the player wins, 18-Volt reaches for the Game and Watch, but then 9-Volt is revealed to also be in the line reaching for it at the same time. The story ends with 9-Volt apologizing by saying, "You'll always be my P2!”

Canine Craze[]

Jimmy P. is walking down a street toward Club Spice when he sees a dog behind a trash can. He smiles and gives the dog a large bone. As he continues walking the dog follows him, and several more dogs appear. When he can't move away from them he starts dancing, which the dogs repeat. They then go inside Club Spice.

Later, they walk out single file and wave goodbye to Jimmy as he watches. Someone then taps him on the shoulder, which he sees is Jimmy T.. They look at each other, and Jimmy T. tilts his head in a confused way.

Forever Form Baton[]

Wario is at his house when he receives the pink motorcycle Penny made at the invent-off. He starts riding when suddenly he starts shrinking and falls into a tub in the middle of the bike. The exhaust pipe then shoots out dozens of Tiny Warios which hop around and find a strawberry patch.

Later they form together in Wario's normal form, but several Splunks find him and demand the return of the Form Baton. He runs through Diamond City with the Splunks following, while the characters from the game watch from the sides of the street. Wario then runs into the Temple of Form and trips over, dropping the Form Baton right back in its platform.

The Secret of the Balance Stone[]

Orbulon's ship is flying through space before suddenly getting hit by a nunchuk (otherwise known as the Balance Stone). The ship crashes into the Temple of Form, which sends Orbulon skidding to a halt near the Form Baton's platform. The Balance Stone hits his head and lands on the platform next to the Form Baton, which start glowing and form a connecting wire. Orbulon picks up this new discovery, right before the Temple lifts off the ground and flies straight into the air.

When the Temple reaches space he claims it as his own, but many Splunks appear and demand the Form Baton and Balance Stone back. The Temple falls back to the ground and launches Orbulon and his ship into the distance.
