Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario series, first appearing in 1985's NES game Super Mario Bros.. Bowser is a koopa and king of the koopa army. He appears as one of the starter villains in the game.

Character DescriptionEdit

Bowser is a large koopa and leader of the Koopa Troop. He resembles a large, monstrous tortoise, with the abilities of a fire-breathing dragon. He has a large, green, spiky shell and demonic looking horns, a typical Koopa. He is extremely heavy and slow, and has an oafish personality. Bowser first appeared in Super Mario Bros. for the NES in 1985. He was the game's antagonist. He kidnapped Princess Toadstool and tried to take over the Mushroom Kingdom with his Koopa Troop. However, he was eventually defeated by Mario. Since then, Bowser has appeared in multiple Mario games, as the main antagonist. He is also one of the most well-known villains in the video game industry.


In addition to being the largest character model in the game, Bowser is the heaviest playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This makes him difficult to KO, yet an easier target to hit. Because of his heavy weight, Bowser's recovery has significant horizontal range but marginal vertical movement. He has very poor ground shield game, second slowest roll and slowest spot dodge. He also has the ability to crawl, but due to his large size, it is very inefficient in avoiding incoming projectiles or other attacks. As with other large characters, Bowser's strengths lie in his KO ability and not his speed.
