Wario's Woods (ワリオの森 Wario no Mori) is a puzzle game made by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super NES in 1994, it was later re-released for WiiWare. This game played very similarly to Tetris with the enemies in the game being able to be defeated by placing bombs over them. In this game, Toad is the main character and he had to prevent Wario from taking over the Mushroom Kingdom.
In this game, Toad rescues the entire Mushroom Kingdom from the wrath of Wario (who is attempting to take over these lands). Throughout the adventure, Toad is helped by his two allies Birdo and Wanda. With their help, Toad uses his superhuman strength to clear his path to Wario by eliminating his minions (through the use of bombs). Throughout the game, Toad is constantly insulted and put down by Wario. Despite this, Toad still completes his duty as the Mushroom Kingdom Hero by defeating Wario and his minions, and lifting the spell off the wooded areas that Wario began his capture of the Kingdom. Depending on the version of the game, Toad is either seen to be chasing Wario out of the woods or bombing Wario's castle at the end of the game. Regardless, it is safe to assume that Toad had successfully defeated Wario by this point in time.
- This is the first video game in the Mario series to have a Toad as the main playable character. The second is Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
- This is the second game where Wario is the main antagonist in. The first being in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.
