WarioWare is a series of video games published by Nintendo. It is a series within the Wario franchise, spun off from the Mario franchise. The games are centered around Wario and his company named WarioWare, whose task is to manufacture microgames. Many of these are Zelda-themed, and all appear in 9-Volt's sets of microgames, which are based on various Nintendo retro games. Most of the installments' microgames have three difficulty levels, with variations at each level.

WarioWare: Snapped! and Game & Wario are the only WarioWare games with no references to The Legend of Zelda.
