Powers and Abilities
Genius Wario's main ability is that he is able to see invisible objects. This includes invisible doors, switches, and sometimes enemies. Genius Wario is often needed for boss fights to help reveal their weaknesses. Once the mastery gem is acquired for Genius Wario, he will have access to his only offensive weapon: the Ultra Hand. With the Ultra Hand, Genius Wario will be able to active invisible switches and damage enemies.
Genius Wario's main weakness mainly occurs early on before getting the mastery gem and it's that he cannot attack at all in this form. Before getting the mastery gem in Poobah the Pharaoh's Pyramid, Genius Wario was only useful for seeing invisible objects and then switching to a different form. His Ultra Hand, though more useful than the Shoulder Bash, is still rather short in range when used.
