In the fight, the Mad Hat Mk. III only attacks with punches and sliding punches, but may occasionally throw its face. In order to damage it, Wario must duck under the sliding punch attack and punch the switch on it's back with Genius Wario. The Mad Hat Mk. III's hat will then fly off and Wario as Thief Wario can jump on it in order to damage it. Wario must do this two more times and Cannoli's creation will be defeated once more.
