The Wario Ware Crew


Here's the cast of the first few Wario Ware games. These games are just fun - fun concept, fun characters, fun cut scenes, fun music, fun everything. These characters are the staff of the game company WarioWare, Inc. Wario creates the company as a scheme to make a ton of money and has his buddies help him. The characters pictured here are - Wario, clad in his biker attire, Mona, a scooter driving babe who can never hold a steady job, Jimmy T., a disco dancing dude, 9-Volt, the oldschool gaming elementary schooler, his big homie, 18-Volt, The Diamond Cab cabbies, Spitz and Dribble, Kat and Ana, the kindergartener ninjas, Dr. Crygor, the crazy scientist with a secret island lab, Orbulon, the migdet alien, Ashley, the bratty little witch, and Mike, the living karaoke machine. Kind of not too proud of how the major picture came out. It's a little too empty and wide, but oh well. I worked my ass off the past 2 days to bring you this picture, so you better enjoy it. If you've never played these wacky games, give em a try.

Here's my Clayfighter tribute. Clayfighter was a comedy/fighter game series in the 90s that had a cast consisting of wacky clay creatures created by Bessy, a meteor dripping with ooze that crashed in Playland, Mudville USA. Though Clayfighter 1 played very badly, Clayfighter 2 (C-2) Judgment Clay was an awesome game that almost all gamers hate on with no real rhyme or reason. From most reviews I've seen and conversations I've held about it, it seems most players didn't even play enough to even understand what they were doing before they made their opinion. When you stop being a hater and play C-2 and actually get good and pay attention, I feel you can notice that it is actually one of the most superior fighters for it's time in terms of gameplay and programming. The CF series also has, in my opinion, the most memorable and interesting roster of characters out of any fighting series. C-2 Judgment clay and all Clayfighter characters were a huge part of my childhood (I was obsessed with C2 in 1995) and C-2 still remains my favorite game ever, so I only felt it a must to do a CF art. The characters pictured are - Bad Mr. Frosty, Taffy, Tiny, The Blob, Blue Suede Goo, Ickybod Clay, Helga, Bonker, Nana Man, Octo Head, Googoo, Hoppy, and Kangoo. The background is wads of gum I chewed and blended together like a weirdo, then scanned to give an extra oozy effect. Hope you enjoy the few and proud Clayfighter fans.
(As for the ones on N64, they had cool character concepts and amazing sculptors, but everything else about them was crap and a hugedown-grade from C-2)
