Wario's Sheriff ending.png

Betty[1] is the damsel-in-distress in the WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! minigame Sheriff, which is named after the original 1979 arcade game. After Wario chases off the titular Sheriff, he must rescue Betty from gangs of rogues. Each time he succeeds, a cutscene plays showing them embracing, with more color added to it each time. When the points are maxed out, Wario rides away with Betty on his horse.


  • Betty is Nintendo's first female video game character, predating Manhole's "alarm lady" and Pauline by under two years. Like Pauline, she was also known as Lady (レディ) in print ads,[2] reviews,[3] and flyers.[4]
  • Shigeru Miyamoto worked on the art design for Sheriff and thus created Betty.[5]
  • The ending cutscene of the Sheriff minigame is very similar to the Heart minigame found in Family BASIC V3.[6][7]
