  • Bowser (character)
rdfs:comment
  • Although Bowser makes more of an iconic appearance in the Mario series, he appears in super smash bros brawl too. Bowser is mained by only a few people, but only because Bowser is incredibly slow and podgy. The NR members who main this gargantuan beast of a lizard & can utilize him in a killer fashion are Rugaji, Sonic, Boss Jr. and Rust.
  • His last name is Koopa, which was revealed in Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and their cartoons. Bowser has been killed a few times, such as in New Super Mario Bros. and possibly in Luigi's Mansion (Madame Clairvoya says Mario "soundly defeated" the Koopa king). However, whenever this happens, Bowser is always resurrected by someone. Bowser is able to speak English (for example in Super Mario Sunshine), and has a distinct booming laugh, but much of the time seems to only produce reptilian roaring noises.

  • His last name is Koopa, which was revealed in Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and their cartoons. Bowser has been killed a few times, such as in New Super Mario Bros. and possibly in Luigi's Mansion (Madame Clairvoya says Mario "soundly defeated" the Koopa king). However, whenever this happens, Bowser is always resurrected by someone. Bowser is depicted fairly consistently as nasty, brutish, and possessing of some sarcastic wit. In Mario Party 5, Bowser reveals his optimistic nature, as upon the player defeating him and granting his wish for a worthy competitor, he says he 'tends to look at the good side of things'. This is leading him to be portrayed with more and more sympathy, and some gamers have joked that 'all he really needs is a hug'. It is odd to note that in some games he appears to be quite intelligent, although he is always considered evil. Bowser is able to speak English (for example in Super Mario Sunshine), and has a distinct booming laugh, but much of the time seems to only produce reptilian roaring noises. Bowser owns a huge castle, and while its appearance and layout changes slightly from game to game they are all quite similar; booby traps everywhere, pits full of lava, usually a few Thwomps, and heavily guarded. It appears his castle is situated to the North-West of the Mushroom Kingdom, in the heart of the Koopa Kingdom. It is apparently able to transform to fly and can become a battleship (like in Paper Mario or Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga). Strangely, in Super Mario World, Bowser's Castle seems to be underneath Dinosaur Land in the Valley of Bowser. It is likely he has multiple castles, or that Dinosaur Land has some kind of Warp Point that connects it to the Koopa Kingdom. In Paper Mario, Bowser's castle is directly under Peach's, which allows him to lift it into the sky, holding everyone in it hostage. In all of the Mario Kart games, Bowser's Castle is a course. The track is different in each game, but they all share similar features. The instruction manual to the original Super Mario Bros. describes Bowser as a sorcerer who had used his magic to transform the denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom into parts of the very environment Mario traverses through (thus explaining the faces on the hills and clouds in the background, and the fact that blocks yield coins and items). This concept has apparently been dropped in following Mario games, as Bowser has rarely shown any proper 'magical' abilities since (except in Super Mario RPG and Super Mario 64 where he does appear to utilise magic in combat, in addition to trapping the denziens of the Mushroom Kingdom inside the walls of Princess Peach's palace).
