Wario (Japanese: ワリオ, Wario) is The recurring character in the Mario series. He is an obese, muscular, hot-tempered, and greedy man, and Mario's yellow-and-purple clad arch-rival. He usually appears as an antagonist, or in some cases an anti-hero. His name is a combination of Mario's name and the Japanese word warui (悪い), meaning "bad".
Wario's greed pushes him to commit malevolent acts, such as the seizing of Mario's castle. Wario has also proven to be very cunning as he has tricked Mario on many occasions. He often goes out on his own adventures, from stealing treasure to running a microgame making company. Wario has helped heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom on a few separate occasions as well.

Wario is a playable character in Super Mario 64 DS. He (along with Luigi) come to "crash the party" after Mario is invited to see Princess Peach. After the three enter the castle, they are captured by Bowser's minions and locked behind doors that can only be opened with special keys. Wario is the last character that the player can unlock. His portrait is located in the mirror room on the second floor of the castle, on the other side of the mirror; the player must use Luigi's Invisibility Power to enter it. Once there, Luigi must get through a small icy stage and fight Chief Chilly in order to obtain the key.
Wario is the strongest of the four characters, but is also the slowest, and has the lowest jump. He can break black bricks and cause more damage to enemies with his attacks. Wario's Power Flower ability is Metal Power, which replaces Metal Mario from the original game. In the VS. Mode, Wario is able to stun opponents with his punches and kicks. He's able to lift stunned opponents and throw them as well.
On the official Nintendo DS site it states that he is allying with Mario to get Princess Peach's treasure. A Toad in the castle also makes notice of this. Wario can grab signs. Also, he moves faster than Mario and Luigi when carrying enemies, including King Bob-omb, he also carries them on his back.
