Wario's dirty tricks bring him dangerously close to disqualification but somehow is always greenlit for the seasons that follow. Wario is the torrential counterpart and older brother to Waluigi. Wario is always classed as a heavyweight in the Mario Kart games following Super Mario Kart (in which he didn't appear in) due to being overweight and fat, sort of like Bowser. He is one of the rivals to Mario. He is also Waluigi's older brother.
Wario returns in Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS. He is a heavyweight racer again and is now an unlockable racer instead of a default racer, unlike every other Mario Kart game minus Super Mario Kart.
He also appeared in the Mario Kart GP series, being a from the start character in the first one. Waluigi didn't appear though.
In the second one, Wario is classed as an expert character, along with DK and Bowser. Waluigi appears this time though.
In DX, Wario is an unlockable character, along with Bowser Jr. and Waluigi. To unlock him, simply beat the Toad Cup. Wario is also considered a heavy character and has the highest speed for a heavy character.
Wario is Mario's rival. You probably guessed that already, considering their names are just a letter apart. He is a bit fatter than Mario, and he dressed in the same style. He wears green slippers and dons purple overalls with two silver buttons on them. Unlike his body, his arms are in shape, and his muscles can be seen underneath his yellow shirt. He has a pair of white gloves, both of them having a purple W on them. He has black eyebrows and a mustache, which is curves a lot. He has a large pink nose and pointy ears, and like Mario, his hair is brown (yet is mustache is black. Doesn't make that much sense, but whatever). His slits around his eyes are a light blue, and he has a yellow cap with his initial (W) on it in purple. Basically, he is the bad version of Mario. He also was the star of Wario Ware and Wario Land. In his early Mario Kart appearances, he wore a long-sleeved shirt, but in future Mario Kart games, he wore a short-sleeved shirt. He also loves money and gold, in fact, he probably doesn’t even pay the employees of his company, WarioWare Inc.
