The History of Wario: Part 1

It all began with a Foreman named Spike.

Appearing in the 1985 Nintendo game Wrecking Crew, Spike appeared as a rival to Mario and Luigi, wreaking havoc around the construction sites at which they worked, and periodically racing the players to find hidden gold coins in bonus stages. While whether or not this R&D1 character was a direct inspiration is unclear, he helped establish that an anti-Mario character would be something of a greedy troublemaker. However, Wrecking Crew would be the last time we would see anything of the sort from Nintendo... until 1992.

The story is too old to be commented.
