Bowser is a recurring villain and boss in the Paper Mario series as well as Super Mario Bros. He is the leader of the Koopa Troopas and has a variety of other enemies at his disposal. He is a large, almost dragon-like koopa with a spiked shell, red hair, and horns. He wears spiked bracelets on his wrists.

Background & Personality

Bowser is enemies with Mario, who always foils his plans to kidnap Princess Peach out of affection. He tends to use his brawn more than his brain, but he is pretty clever when coming up with schemes. He is a feared but renowned ruler in his own castle, leading armies of various different species. Despite his earnest efforts, the princess never reciprocates his love.

Story Progression

You first encounter Bowser in the very first trip to Peach's Castle. He shows up, having taken the magical Star Rod. A huge clown-car-shaped platform raises up beneath the castle, carrying it up into the sky. He then uses the power of the Star Rod to curbstomp Mario, sending him to Goomba Village. He isn't seen again except in Peach Interludes and being mentioned in dialogue until the ending.

When Mario and co. return to the castle, they will eventually encounter Bowser in the same hallway as before, this time with a fair fight. He eventually retreats to the Clown Car Arena where the final showdown occurs. He continually boosts his power with the Star Rod until he's invincible, but Mario and co. use their ultimate weapon to defeat him.
