How To Unlock Characters In Dr Mario 64

If you fancy yourself as a wannabe Mushroom Kingdom chemist, then you’re probably wondering how to unlock characters in Dr Mario 64.

Ok, that might be a bit of a generalisation, but I needed a link to this next section…

Yes, today were talking about the Nintendo classic Dr Mario 64, the virus-bashing drop game that first came to light on the NES back in 1990.

Not only is this one of the best multiplayer games on the N64, but it’s also one of the most addictive titles to play in single player mode too. Fans of Tetris, Columns, Candy Crush, and combating world viruses will undoubtedly love it.

And, like all addictive games, there are some hidden features to unlock if you’re willing to put the time in, namely unlocking two bizarre characters to play with in versus mode.

So, let’s check out how to unlock characters in Dr Mario 64. It’s time to get your game face on!

How How To Unlock Vampire Wario In Dr Mario 64

In order to unlock Vampire Wario in Dr Mario 64, you must first complete the Story mode on Normal or higher difficulty using Dr. Mario.

But it’s not that easy…

In order to get Vampire Wario to appear, you must make sure that you don’t fail at all.

Not even once.

Yeah, it’s a tough one alright!

Vampire Wario can be used in versus mode to scare your mates into submission… I wonder if he’s upset that he can’t eat garlic anymore?

By channeling the power of undead Wario and using those sharp teeth, those little virus characters don’t stand a chance!

To get Metal Mario in Dr Mario 64, players must complete the story mode on Normal difficulty or higher this time using Wario.

And yes, you can’t lose at all this time either.

That sounds much easier than it…

Complete Story mode on Normal or higher difficulty using Wario, but without losing a single time.

What is it with these old games; why are they hard as nails!

Metal Dr Mario doesn’t look quite as cool as Vampire Wario in my opinion… why would anyone want a metal doctor? They’d always have cold hands!

What Do The Unlockable Characters Do In Dr Mario 64?

The answer is pretty simple… nothing really…

The unlockable characters are basically just there as alternative avatars to use when playing multiplayer with friends. They don’t do anything else apart from look cool…
