Dribble WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! Game Boy Advance • Gamecube • Virtual Console A large anthropomorphic bulldog with red hair (he wears a hat) who stands on his hind legs. He wears a blue jumpsuit with what appears to be a picture of a teddy bear on the back, and a green hat which bears his logo (a D with spots near the curved end, so it looks like a paw). He seems to be a stereotypical taxi driver: large, burly and gruff. In reality, he is quite calm and friendly, though perhaps not as intelligent (e.g., he forgot to collect a very large fare in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$).
