Template:Infobox Bowser is Mario's archenemy. He is known for his countless attempts to kidnap Peach Toadstool, but every attempt failed. He is the leader of an army (and a "family"). He is the king of Koopaland from 1998-present, the king of Dark Land from 2009-present and the king of Bowser Land from 2018-present.
Bowser was born in 1969 as the 1st and eldest son of King Morton Koopa Sr. His mother was Bowserina. His babysitter was the old magikoopa Kamek. As a kid, Bowser was very bratty and mean because he was spoiled rotten by his parents and Kamek.
Kamek had a vision one night in 1971 that two babies will cause future disaster to the Koopas. When the stork was delivering them from Star Haven—the mystical land where star children come from—to their adoptive parents Kamek kidnapped the Stork and Baby Luigi. Baby Mario fell into the hands of the Yoshis, starting what we all know as the adventure in Yoshi's Island. Baby Bowser got deafeated by Green Yoshi in the end, causing Bowser and Kamek to hold a grudge against the Yoshi Tribe.
Years later, Bowser tried to get revenge on the Yoshi's by stealing the Super Happy Tree. The Yoshi Tribe again defeated him. 20 years later, Bowser tried to get revenge again in which we know as the Tetris Attack.
Bowser's paternal grandfather, the unnamed King of Koopaland died in 1999 and Bowser became the king. He decided to conquer Brooklyn and conquer and and turn the world into his own image. The Mario bros went to Muda Island to stop the Koopa Empire from reaching Brooklyn, foil Bowser's attempts, and send him back to the Badlands.
Mario and the Monkeys Edit
Bowser appears in Mario and the Monkeys as an ally to stop the Monkeys.
Bowser also appears in Amy vs. The Mushroom Kingdom as one of Amy's soldiers.
Bowser appears in Super Mario Moose as the main villain. In this game, Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach and orders the Koopalings to take over parts of the Mushroom Kingdom. As always, his plans are foiled by Mario.
Bowser appears in Bowser's Story as the main character and one of the four playable characters. This is so far the only game to be from Bowser's point of view.
Bowser has been confirmed to appear in Super Mario Smash as a playable fighter. His move set is about the same as in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.
Bowser makes a surprise appearance in Donkey Kong: Revive as the true villain. He reveals that he had Kamek cast a spell on Donkey Kong to get Peach and Pauline into one place. He then snatches up the two and jumps away. In levels 11-15 he rolls down barrels to hit the player. On his boss fight on level 16, he rolls barrels, breathes fire, and occasionally jumps down and confronts the player himself.
Bowser is the protagonist of this game. In this game, the player controls Bowser, armed with a gun, as he goes on a journey to destroy anomalies and aliens.
Bowser the Warrior IIEdit
Bowser is once again the solo protagonist in this game. This time, there's a clear motive to his current mission. In this game, aliens have destroyed humanity in 2012 A.D. (this game was released in 2010), with Bowser being the only survivor, so he has to destroy the aliens once again before he gets exterminated himself.
Bowser is the protagonist of this game. Once again, alien attacks are everywhere, so humanity has to find out the reason behind said attacks. In order to do so, a human leader gives Bowser a mission to find the source.
Bowser appears as one of the three characters who are being held hostage in Equestria. Wario can find him being hung upside-down in Pinkie Pie's boss room. He's then freed once Wario defeats her.
