Jimmy Thang (commonly refered to as Jimmy T.) is a recurring character in the WarioWare series. He is a disco dancer who is usually seen hanging out in night clubs, particularly Club Sugar. He is the son of Papa Thang and Mama Thang as well as the elder brother of Jamie Thang and James Thang.
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!
Jimmy makes his first appearance in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! where he is presented as one of Wario's friend and is called by Wario to join his "company", WarioWare, Inc., to produce microgames for his upcoming game.
In his own story, Jimmy frequents a dance club called Club Sugar where he dances to disco music. In the ending, he is seen leaving the dance club while listening to his phone's ringtone. Jimmy also makes a short appearance in the game's ending story. In the WarioWare headquarters, Wario runs off with the profits made from the game after he's called out on hoarding it. Jimmy is shocked, but doesn't chase after him. He later watches as Wario plummets to the ocean.
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!
In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, it is revealed that he had a girlfriend, who dumped him because she thought that he enjoyed dancing more than spending time with her. In Club Sugar, she asks him if he liked her or dancing more. Shortly afterwards, Jimmy starts to dance, causing the woman to leave. Jimmy bursts into tears and claims that the rhythm made him do it.
In WarioWare Twisted!, Jimmy's parents are seen for the first time. They dance along with their son at Club Sugar. While the family's still on the dance floor, Sugar the club owner tells the Thangs that the dinner they ordered is ready. However, instead of eating, they play around with their cell phones, posing for pictures and snapping shots of themselves.
Annoyed, Sugar says that their dinner is getting cold, and he finally tells Jimmy and his parents to leave Club Sugar and closes the club.
In WarioWare: Touched!, a speaker announces "Jimmy's Showtime" at Club Sugar. Jimmy appears on the dance floor as usual and receives the applause of the public. He then summons his parents and his younger siblings J.
The family starts to dance, but an orange bug flies through Club Sugar and lands right into Jimmy's wig. This causes Jimmy's afro to feel really itchy and he starts to move erratically. However, the other Thangs think that Jimmy's moves are just another dance. After scratching the bug out of his wig, Jimmy continues dancing with his family.
After the show's end, the Thang family walk through the streets of Diamond City. The bug, now with a bandage on its head, reappears and flies into Jimmy's wig, causing him to move hectically again. Once again, his family thinks that he's just dancing.
WarioWare: Smooth Moves
In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Jimmy walks down to Club Sugar with an umbrella on a rainy night. While he's walking, he sees a soaked cat, and decides to give the cat his umbrella. Later, the cat, along with a lot of other cats, follow Jimmy and imitate his dance movements. Jimmy and the cats start to dance for awhile and continue to dance once they reach Club Sugar.
After their dance is finished, the cats walk out, each saying "meow." At the end, the pitied cat gives the umbrella back to Jimmy, earning a smile from him.
At the end of Jimmy P.'s story, Jimmy T. pats on Jimmy P.'s shoulder, leading to the two of them facing each other.
In WarioWare D.I.Y., Jimmy stars in his own aerobics TV show called Jimmy's Aerobics, where he is seen doing aerobics along with two women in the background.
