Does anyone else here miss when Wario used to be taller than Mario? It was especially apparent in the early titles.

My theory is that Nintendo gave Wario a size downgrade because he stopped a being boss character, and usually those types are bigger/bolder than Mario's sprite. Take Bowser for instance.

I actually like to think he's still taller than Mario, just maybe not that big.

Actually, isn't he still as tall as depicted on the comic?

@CM30 made a thread about this and it included an image:

In some games like Smash 4 and Mario Party, Wario is as tall as mario or even shorter, but in other games like some of the tennis/golf games he's clearly taller.
