Reception[change | change source]

Wario ranked 10th on GameDaily's Top 10 Smash Bros. characters list.[1] He also ranked seventh on GameDaily's top 10 ugliest game characters list; the authors referenced his snarling smile, moustache, and outfits.[2] They also included him in a top 25 list of video game anti-heroes, stating that in spite of his greed, he's actually a "cool dude".[3] Screwattack rated Wario as the 10th Biggest Douchebag in Gaming.[4] IGN editor Travis Fahs commented that while he was not the most likable character, he has incredible confidence that overshadows his flaws and makes him an entertaining character.[5] In an article written by Kombo editors Agustin Olvera and Stephen Smith, they exclaim their surprise that he had not appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a playable character, stating that he would be a great addition to the game.[6]
