Bowser is set to be the main antagonist of the upcoming Super Mario: Battle for the Mushroom Kingdom. In this version, he has always believed kidnapping a princess and marrying her would bring him power over a kingdom. Lately, he has come to realize that that does not work. His string of constant defeats have completely angered corrupted him to the point where he will easily obliterate kingdoms without a single twitch of remorse.
In the game, he is portrayed as a far darker incarnation rather than the one in previous games. He plans to take over the whole planet using a new sattelite superweapon. His personality here is utterly ruthless, and he is really, really evil. He calmy obliterates the BeanBean kingdom just to demonstrate the weapon's power. He will willingly kill anyone who dares oppose him, ranging from Mario, to Princess Peach, even one of his own men if they dare do so.
In this game he teams up with Eggman. He breaks into Daisy's castle whilst she and Luigi are getting married. He breaks into the vault and steals hundreds of artifacts known as Time Bombs, which, when blown up, will freeze that area in time.
He proceeds to take all the Mario and Sonic characters, save for Mario and Sonic themselves, who send them away. He cages all the prisoners and scatters them around the Mushroom Kingdom.
He and Eggman place a Time Bomb along with the prisoners. They do this because they had previously found a large book, explaining that freezing the Mushroom Kingdom in time will make a legendary object called the Master Bomb appear in a place called the Time Tomb. The Master Bomb will permanently freeze time
Mario and Sonic are able to save all their friends. However, they are unable to disable the Time Bombs. With the Mushroom Kingdom frozen, Bowser and Eggman make their way to the Time Tomb.
Once in the Time Tomb, they are attacked by Mario, Sonic and their former prisoners. Bowser uses one of Eggman's machines to transform into Giga Bowser.
At first it seems they are going to win. However, Sonic traps Bowser inbetween a wall and a box. He sets the machine to 'MINI' and shoots it at Bowser. Bowser turns into a mini version of himself. He witnesses Mario using a machine Eggman was using to destroy the Master Bomb and unfreezing time in the Mushroom Kingdom. Bowser and Eggman flee.
Bowser serves as an antagonist, and Wario & Waluigi meet him right before the real trek began. Bowser fought the Wario Bros and lost against them. Afterwards he falsely lead them into the long way so he can take the easy way and avoid trouble with the Wario Bros. To hinder the bros he sent the Koopalings to block them from reaching the end. After seeing that they caught up, he fought the two and lost again. Wario, Bowser, and Roy broke through the door together, finding many piles of gold. However, Tutankoopa descends and tells that no one may take the treasure. The trio and all of the Koopalings were enraged and they all battle Tutankoopa. In battle Bowser watches you fight, throwing items to help you fight Tutankoopa. After the king's defeat, the Wario Bros. and the Bowser family all escape the self-destructing pyramid. Bowser in the end got half of the money due to Wario being happy that he helped with the robbery. Then the story ends.
In the first battle he can breathe two flames at a time and he moves slowly. You have to grab his tail and swing him towards a spiked ball. After he hits the spiked ball, he's defeated. Waluigi cannot grab Bowser's tail, but instead he sprints into Bowser and he will be sent flying away.
The rematch plays like the Super Mario 64 final battle, but every now and then a Koopaling will help Bowser and the king will jump out of the ring. You have to fight that Koopaling in the same manner you've done earlier, and after one hit he or she is defeated and Bowser re-enters the ring. Once he's hit a spike ball three times he's defeated and will give up and help you break in.
Bowser is the main antagonist. When Kamek brings Bowser a book that was passed down through multiple generations, Bowser uses its powers to regenerate his army. He sent them to attack Mario's house. While Mario was stalled trying to defeat the creatures, Bowser used the book's magical properties to send Princess Peach's Castle into the Cloud Rift. He is seen at the end of Mushroom Kingdom Way, releasing Goomboss to attack Mario. He is later seen enlarging a Blooper in the Toad Town Sewer System. He is fought in Bowser Castle.
In this first fight, Bowser attacks by breathing fire and sliding around in his shell. When he slides around, he can be defeated by being led to one of the motion-sensors around the arena, where a hammer falls onto Bowser's shell. After 3 hits, Bowser changes his tactics so instead of sliding in his shell, he ground-pounds and causes rubble to fall from the sky, then charges at Mario. Mario must lead Bowser under the rubble 3 times. After those 3 hits, Bowser is defeated and gives up the shard of the Power Star.
He is later seen in Bowser's Alternate Universe, which he created with the book. Bowser is altered by this universe, much like his army (the creatures). He is fought similarly to the first encounter, except for the fact that he has a new tactic: throwing the shells of Alternate Koopas. The shells must be jumped on (when the shell's spikes aren't visible) and thrown back at Bowser. After 3 hits, this alternate form of Bowser will split the center of the Power Star in half.
He is fought one final time in Princess Peach's Castle as a ghost. After he is defeated, he explodes into smoke.
If you use a Mario amiibo whilst playing, you unlock the amiibo mountain, Cool Cool Mountain, once you reach the top Nana and Popo are tasked with defeating bowser.
Bowser appeared as the main antagonist of the film. His appearance and personality were slightly reimagined. He is voiced by Hugo Weaving in the film. He is portrayed as a much scarier, vicious, and overall much more threatening villain than he EVER was in the games. He is vicious, determined, and takes NO prisoners. He wants to kill Princess Peach and take over as the ruler of The Mushroom Kingdom. But Mario and Luigi stand in his way. Bowser has fire breath (obviously) is immune to Fire Flower attacks, and has superhuman strength.
He attacks the Annual Mushroom Parade and attempts to kill the Princess, but the Mario Bros. fight and stop him. Angry, Bowser then kidnaps the Princess to draw out The Mario Bros, so he can kill them. A fight between the Mario Bros. and Bowser ensues, and Bowser beats up The Mario Bros. But they manage to get enough strength to push Bowser into a lava pit, seemingly killing him.
But its revealed in a post-credits scene that he survived his fall into the lava, when Bowser's hand comes out of the lava.
Bowser appears as the main antagonist again in Super Smash Bros. (film).
In The Rage of Bowser: A Mario Movie, Future Bowser is the main antagonist, becoming half-Terminator, half-Khan Noonien Singh, or half-Human, half-Koopa, yet all evil and is out to change the past and wreck the future. After having taken over the Mushroom Kingdom for some time, Future Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Princess Daisy are leading the winning battle to reclaim the Mushroom Kingdom. Bowser declares that he finally has had it of Mario and Luigi always foiling his plans.
Tasking Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings to be the heirs to the throne of the Koopa Kingdom, for he cannot return, as time-travel is a one way trip, Future Bowser goes back in time to 1983 Brooklyn and shifts between his Koopa and bodybuilder Human form to kill 1983 Mario and 1983 Luigi before they return to the Mushroom Kingdom and save Peach the first time in 1985 during Super Mario Bros..
Little does he know that Future Peach had followed him through time as well. She does whatever it takes to stop Future Bowser from messing up the timeline irrevocably, turning his hunt for the White Whale of the Mario Bros. into a wild goose chase. Eventually crashing his F-4 Phantom into a tanker truck in Las Vegas, he burns his skin, hair and shell away to become Future Dry Bowser. He follows 1983 Mario, 1983 Luigi and Future Peach into a factory for Red Baron Frozen Pizzas just outside of Las Vegas.
Future Peach manages to blow his lower body away with an explosive, making his efforts to kill 1983 Mario and Luigi all the more difficult, and in the process, kills herself. Taking it upon themselves to avenge Peach's sacrifice, the 1983 Mario Bros. lure Future Dry Bowser onto a catwalk over the big grinders, he finally has them where he wants them. He is caught off balance when the 1983 Mario Bros. knock him right into the grinders, with his bones being used to fortify the cheese to make the frozen pizzas. The Koopa King is no more.
Antagonizing a Cat
In Super Mario Silver Spurs: The Crossover Vacation, Bowser makes a deal with Mario and Peach for ownership of half the Mushroom Kingdom if he can settle conflicts between the vacation group. But sometimes, he ends up antagonizing Gumball Watterson, who is part of the group. In some scenes, however, he remembers his agreement and stops fights between Gumball and Sonic the Hedgehog. Bowser also combines his knowledge with Mario's, Gumball's and other characters' as he ventures with the group. On the contrary, he is still as grumpy as he usually is.
Bowser appears as the Major and Main villain of the game, having destroyed the Mythical Star, a vessel that contained 7 Koopalings from long ago. He uses these 7 Mythical Koopalings as well as his own 7 Koopalings to take over the Mushroom Kingdom and beyond, forcing Mario and Co. to go after him. His original plan was to capture Princess Peach however, so it is unspecified whether or not he knew the 7 Mythical Koopalings were held within the Mythical Star, or even of the Mythical Star's existence.
In this story, Bowser appears as one of three main antagonists, with the other two being his two newest Koopa Troop recruits, Dimentia and Dimention. Initially, things started out with the usual storyline, which entails Princess Peach getting kidnapped by Bowser, with Mario and Luigi, along with Toad, Yoshi, and a reluctant Birdo coming to her rescue. A week after his defeat, Bowser began recruiting new members of the Koopa Troop to aid him in his next scheme to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom and the rest of the world.
Among these new recruits was the deranged Punchinello, along with the aforementioned jesters, Dimentia and Dimention. However, he initially rejected the latter two; not because of their resemblance to Dimentio (which he did not completely catch onto at the time), but because their clownish appearances made it difficult for the Koopa King to take them seriously. As such, he did not feel that the two of them were qualified to join his army. It wasn't until much later on that Bowser reconsidered his decision, due to the fact that the two jester twins began blackmailing him with embarrassing entries in his diary regarding his one-sided crush on Princess Peach.
After getting the introductions out of the way, Dimentia and Dimention informed Bowser about the "Chaos Star", an object that would give infinite power to the user, and allow him to defeat his enemies and conquer the world. The two of them then proceeded to give Bowser instructions on how to create it, and once the Chaos Star was formed, he tested its powers right away by having a sparring session with his minions. Much to the Koopa King's delight, their attacks had no affect on him. He then decided that he was going to attack Princess Peach's castle again the very next week, which happened to be the birthday of the Mario Brothers.
Upon spotting Bowser's fleet, Luigi, who wanted to prove to everyone that he was capable of saving the world on his own, took it upon himself to stop the Koopa Troop's invasion of the Mushroom Kingdom. He was able to defeat everyone on there with ease, with the exception of Bowser. Before engaging Luigi in battle, Bowser ordered Dimentia and Dimention to take the stolen Purity Stars to the Koopalings' castles, so that they don't end up subduing the Chaos Star's powers during the battle. Much like Mario's first battle with Bowser during the events of Paper Mario, the outcome was exactly the same, with Luigi being on the receiving end of a one-sided beating. The same eventually happened to Mario and his partners from the first and second Paper Mario titles when they came on the scene to help Luigi.
With the heroes out of the way, Bowser was free to take his plan to the next step, which was a full-scale assault on Peach's castle. Francis, who was visiting the castle at the time, attempted to stop him, but was easily defeated and promptly tossed out of a nearby window. After having it lifted up into the sky once again and merged with his own castle, Bowser ordered his troops to round up all the Toads that were in the castle, and have them locked in a dungeon. He also ordered Kamek and Kammy Koopa to have Peach and Daisy locked up elsewhere.
Shortly afterwards, Dimentia, who was apparently awe-struck by the entries in Bowser's diary, offered him a love potion to use on Peach; one that would become permanent within twenty-four hours of its use. Tiptron, who was still in the area at the time, flew off to warn Peach and Daisy about it, telling the former that she should escape as quickly as possible. Unfortunately for them, however, Peach ended up getting caught as she was in the process of escaping. Bowser then had his minions hold Peach down as he used the potion on her. Daisy and Tiptron tried to stop him, but ended up getting blocked by an invisible forcefield that Dimention created. With no one to interrupt Bowser, Peach soon ended up succumbing to the potion's effects. Much to the Koopa King's delight and Daisy's disgust, the potion ended up working, just as Dimentia said it would. From that point on, Daisy and Tiptron made it their sole mission to obtain the antidote at any cost, along with finding the evidence that they need to prove to Bowser and the Koopa Troop that Dimentia and Dimention are merely using Bowser as a pawn in their scheme, which involves the impending destruction of the entire universe.
