Wario Land 4 is the fourth game of the Wario Land series released for the Game Boy Advance. It was released in 2001.


Everything starts when Wario sees an article in the newspaper about a treasure that has been uncovered in a golden temple in the jungle. As ambitious and greedy as he is, he gets on his car to get there and claim all the treasure for himself.


The main goal of each level is to collect a key (known as a "Keyzer") as well as four pieces of a diamond that will unlock the door to the level's boss. Also, the player will collect money which they can spend on minigames to earn medals. These medals can be used to buy power-ups that damage bosses without having to fight them, a desirable feature when facing the Golden Diva, and a necessary feature when facing bosses in super hard mode (especially Spoiled Rotten).

Entry PassageEdit

The first passage Wario enters in Wario Land 4. Has one level.

Hall of HieroglyphsEdit

Tutorial-like level for Wario Land 4.

Spoiled Rotten Edit

Spoiled Rotten is the boss of Entry Passage. Appears to be a giant eggplant carrying a baby doll. This boss does not cause damage until nearly dead, at which point it throws a tantrum and exposes his sharp teeth to attack Wario. Wario must defeat this boss to open up the other four passages.

Emerald Passage Edit

The easiest of the four passages, but it can still be of some trouble in the later levels.

Sapphire Passage Edit

The hardest of the passages, the Sapphire passage has a horror/Arabian theme to it. The Boss of this level is Catbat, a massive creature that creates waves and floating mines.

Ruby Passage Edit

A passage with an urban theme. A good third passage.

Topaz Passage Edit

A passage with a toy theme. A good second passage.
