― 5-Volt, WarioWare Gold

5-Volt is 9-Volt's mother in WarioWare series, making her first appearance in WarioWare: Twisted!, although she was mentioned in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. She was not fully seen until Game & Wario.


WarioWare series

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!

5-Volt was mentioned in the game, although her name was not there. Her son, 9-Volt, mentions in his diary that she loved the Game-and-Watch game device he gave her. It was mentioned that her birthday is on March 13.

WarioWare: Twisted!

5-Volt makes her first appearance in WarioWare Twisted!. After completing 9-Volt's microgame sets, she bursts into his room and yells at him that it is past his bedtime and we see her from the knees down. She later checks to see if he is sleeping for real and closes the door. It is later revealed 9-Volt is still playing on his Game Boy Advance SP, but a few seconds later, she opened the door and saw him playing his Game Boy Advance SP, which she demands he put away. She appears as a silhouette in the doorway.

WarioWare: Touched!

5-Volt on appeared after 9-Volt's "Game Over" screen who appears as a silhouette behind the door watching him and 18-Volt eating on the table.

Game & Wario

This is the first time her appearance is completely shown. In the cutscene, after 9-Volt and 18-Volt are playing their game, 5-Volt bursts into the boys's orders them to do their homework. After they finish it, they found out she beat their high score out of the blues (18-Volt scored 38, 9-Volt scored 39, and 5-Volt scored 100). In the Gamer tutorial, she catches 9-Volt playing on the GamePad, and her appearance is fully shown, and also, she tells him to put it away. On the second attempt, if he hides the GamePad, she checks on him and decides to leave. She can attempt fake outs. If she catches 9-Volt playing on the GamePad, the player loses and shows 9-Volt apologizing to 5-Volt. At the end of the minigame, 9-Volt mentions that his mother is not scary, even though her animations show this.

WarioWare Gold

5-Volt's appearance has slightly changed. She now wears a red hoodie with light-green trousers. She also appears in the last stage of the "Mash League." Her genre is "Nintendo Classics" along with 9-Volt and 18-Volt.

In her house, she changes television channels and yawns. She realizes that 9-Volt is coming home and decides to cook dinner. However, a muscular man named Mr. Sparkles appears on the screen and she becomes interested in watching the show and shocked with the frying pan. During the break, she assures herself that she is ready to do the workout. After defeating the Boss Stage, 5-Volt cooked hamburgers for 9-Volt and Fronk as they arrive. 9-Volt was excited, but he could not get his Nintendo 3DS. 5-Volt lift up the shelf for him due to his amazement. 5-Volt hosts the second stage of the Ultra League, Potluck Gang while 9-Volt, 18-Volt, Dribble and Spitz, Ashley and Red, and Orbulon. After 9-Volt considers potluck as a bad idea (since Ashley brought a Mandrake Root by mistake), 5-Volt brings card games. At the end of the story, 5-Volt snaps a picture of the guests along with the Sasquatch family members. 5-Volt is part of the crowd, she takes a picture of Wario spanked by Young Cricket and assures him that he will be fine. The crowd agreed with the cut ignoring Wario, who is displeased.

5-Volt revives her role in "Sneaky Gamer," the equivalent to Game & Wario's "Gamer" minigame. However, she uses her new appearance.

Super Smash Bros. series

5-Volt makes her Super Smash Bros. debut in Super Smash Bros. 4, where she appears on the Gamer stage. If she catches anyone, 5-Volt screams loudly, knocking anyone who got caught to the other side of the stage. This is a powerful attack that can penetrate through shields.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate , 5-Volt can be fought as a spirit. She is represented by Shizue from the series Animal Crossing. I'm assuming that means Isabelle.

Names in Other Languages

5-Volt, 9-Volt, and 18-Volt earned their names from the term Volt, which is the SI unit of electrical potential.
