Fact: Wario in Japanese would actually mean 'bad Mario', the word "wa" being the Japanese word for bad. The same goes for bad Luigi - Waluigi.

Actually, "warui" is bad in Japanese. Wario is a semi-pun on the sound of warui. Waluigi in Japanese would sound like "waruiji", which is similar too.

@Rensch Bug catching is a popular kids' pastime in Japan. You'll notice there's a lot of Japanese video games and anime with bug-catching kids.

Holy crap. I play as Wario a lot on Brawl (so I win a lot, obviously), AND I've played Shake It a lot (and love the music), yet I've never noticed =D

Thanks!
