Bowser, known in Japan as Koopa, or also called Bowser, King of the Koopas is a personage of Nintendo video games and main antagonist in the games of Super Mario Bros. He is a bitter enemy of Mario.
Bowser is the leader and most powerful of his race, and he is considered as an antagonist for the reason that he has tried to seize the world of the mushrooms in countless occasions and has tried to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom from his first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and the universe from the Galaxy games.
Being a representation of the brute force, in general, Mario manages to defeat Bowser using the intelligence, taking advantage of the elements of the place where they fight.
Bowser has also been repeatedly named villain of the year by video games for Super Mario Bros. 1 and 3, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy and the Super Mario Galaxy 2.
In Super Mario Sunshine of GameCube, we can observe how the Japanese name of Bowser happens to become his last name. It is, therefore, Bowser of the ‘Koopa dynasty’, as he himself tells his son at the end of the game. According to Nintendo, his full name is Bowser Morton Koopa.
It is one of the enemies that appears in the video game series of Mario. The copies of Dry Bones and the original ones are Koopa Troopas in the form of a skeleton, they are difficult to eliminate, since when they tread, they can self-rebuild, and in some games, you can see that their weakness is fire, ice, magic, explosions and hammers. They are usually seen in castles, dungeons or underground areas. Also when they appear, they can throw a bone to attack the player.
Bowser Jr., commonly known as Bowsy, is the eighth child of Bowser and is never with his other brothers. He first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine as the main villain who stole a magic brush from Professor E. Gadd with whom he disguised himself as Mario’s alter ego known as Anti-Mario or Dark Mario.
He looks a lot like his father when he was a baby, who appears as the final boss of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. He has also appeared in many other Mario games such as Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and many others as a playable character.
To be a villain, you can choose which Mario character you are out of this list of the Mario villains.
