Bowser is the malicious tyrant and leader of the Koopa Army, along with being a returning character in Super Smash Bros. Universal Struggle. Like his previous appearances in Smash, Bowser is pretty much a tank of a character in terms of damage and knockback. He is now the second fastest of the heavyweights (losing to Henry Fleming, a newcomer) but can survive well on his own without the usage of items. Not much has been changed about Bowser this time around.
