The Syrup Gang by JamesTheUnworthy The Syrup Gang by JamesTheUnworthy
First game ever completed, Wario Land 2 - still one of my favourites :)

Was only after penning the money bags that I realised I confused them with the money bags in Mario Land 2... well... they're in the same canon...
Wasn't sure how to go about Captain Syrup's design (the in-game sprite not being a huge help) - ended up doing as for Celes: pilfering parts I liked from different
designs and stitching them together in an unholy Frankenstein-esque concoction. The Pirate Gooms were much simpler, and more relaxing to draw, which I
badly needed

Hope you like :)


Also, was amused to discover what the shocked expression of the Gooms looked like - never got a good look at the game's sprite before today

Hey Darren - just barely :)

And they're the villains of Wario Land 2... and technically Wario Land 1, but since Wario's kinda the aggressor in that game...
suffice to say, none of them are saints :P

(also Wario Land: Shake It, I believe, but haven't played that one)

Essentially Captain Syrup (presumably in retaliation for Wario raiding her castle and nicking her genie in the first one) sent
her Gooms to raid Wario's castle and steal his treasure - so Wario has to chase them across various places to defeat them
and get his treasure back. And also steal considerably more from Captain Syrup, in the 100% ending.

So, he's pretty much a 'good guy' by virtue of him being the one you control :P

A "pirates pirating pirates" scenario
I see, but I'm not sure that really makes him count as a good guy...

No, I agree - guess 'protagonist' is the best descriptor you can ever give to Wario - lets him be the
main character and be as much of a arsehole as he pleases :P
