King Bowser Koopa (commonly known as Bowser) is the leader of the Koopa Troop and the main antagonist and final boss of many, but not all, of the Super Mario video games developed by Nintendo. This incarnation of the Koopa King comes from the infamous Philips CD-I Mario title, Hotel Mario. In this, he and his seven koopaling children took over the Mushroom Kingdom and held the Princess hostage in the Koopa Hotels. Bowser dared Mario and Luigi to find her if they could. Ultimately, Bowser was defeated by the Mario Bros. in a final showdown, and the game ends with him falling to his doom and his hotel disappearing in a cloud of smoke.

Before Pokémon Tournament
Bowser made very few appearances before the Pokémon Tournament arc. In The Last Stand Against Weegee, he was one of The King's two weakest fighters, along with Link, and was easily destroyed by Weegee. In Super Guns Fight he wielded a minigun and killed several minor members of the Good Team before being defeated by a Fisherman.
In the Pokémon Tournament Arc
Bowser appears significantly more formidable in this series. He owns two incredibly powerful Pokemon: a shiny Kyurem named Ass Kicker which has a powerful special attack named Ass Kicking (which obviously does not exist in the Pokemon universe), and a shiny Arceus named My Princess able to cast Flames of Judgement (another non-canon attack), a giant beam of fire which seems to be effective against phoenixes like Mario's Ho-oh, Princess.
Bowser defeated Mario's team with ease, humiliating the plumber and causing Princess Peach to fall in love with him instead. Mario and Luigi therefore make an alliance with Ganon and formulate a plan to kill Bowser. Ganon would distract Bowser while Mario and Luigi charged an incredibly powerful attack.
After obtaining a small power boost from Link Nukem's Triforce of Power, Ganon squared off against Bowser. The turtle dragon put up a tough fight, but with the help of his minions Ganon seemed to claim victory. However, Princess Peach's love allowed Bowser to turn into a final form, Insane Bowser, tearing Ganon and his minions apart just in time for Mario and Luigi to fire their Anti-Bowser Beam. The Koopa King avoided the attack at first, but it bounced off of a peeing Link Nukem and came back at him from behind, dealing tremendous damage and knocking Bowser out.
Princess Zelda found the unconscious Bowser's body in the Mushroom Kingdom and looted what is presumed to be his two strongest Pokémon. Bowser woke up at that moment, but was unceremoniously shot and overkilled by a random dancing archer. Whether he was killed for good and will miss his Pokemon match with Zelda in the semi-finals (which would grant Zelda victory by default) or come back to life once again later on and make it back to the tournament is currently unknown.
Powers and abilities
In battle, he rides his floating Koopa Clown Car, which fires lasers from its eyes and has an impenetrable deflector shield. He can be difficult to hit even in his normal state (Calm Bowser) because the deflector shield can only be broken by a character with the Shield Breaker skill. Otherwise, the only way to damage him is deflecting the highly damaging Mecha Koopas he throws. These Mecha Koopas deal damage equal to half the target's maximum HP when they connect.
In his second form, Angry Bowser, his attack and speed rapidly grows. Even worse, his already powerful attacks all have extra effects, such as becoming stronger every time he uses them, granting him an extra turn or healing him. His Clown Deadly Tackle slams all enemies, doubles his attack power and allows him to attack twice on the next turn. Giant Ball of Doom hurls a deadly metal ball on an enemy from above, dealing tremendous damage, healing Bowser, and increasing the damage of his next Mecha-Koopa by 50%. He also has several powerful fire abilities, such as Super Fire Breath, which additionally boosts the power of the next Fire attack; and the one-use Limit Break Blaze of Fury, in which one opponent is punched rapidly with flaming fists before all opponents get razed by a wave of flames. He can still throw Mecha Koopas, and now if they are deflected at him he can throw them back again.
His final form, Insane Bowser, requires the power of love to activate. This form is incredibly powerful and fittingly completely insane, using a variety of Internet memes to attack. He can use "Going Rambo" to pull out two machine guns and dish out tremendous multi-hit damage on foes. He also has Death Awaits, which allows him to counterattack for ten turns on lower-level enemies and sets his mane ablaze. The counter in question is OBJECTION!, which cancels out the opponent's attacks. He follows up with FUS RO DAH!, canceling all of his opponents' stat boosts and stunning them. His Limit Break, Ultimate Clown, boosts his attack twentyfold by turning his Koopa Klown Kar into a massive battleship. After his Limit Break, he can unleash Certain Kill - which was somehow learned from Link Nukem - which fires an insane amount of laser beams that deal around 15 billion HP in damage to all opponents, which was an instant total party wipe for Ganon.
- During Insane Mode, Bowser's level is 1666. The number 666 is the number of the devil in the Christian Bible.
- In Insane mode, the expression of his Koopa Clown Car changes to various ragefaces, like the awesome face, "No." face, RAEG face and others.
- Bowser's OBJECTION! attack during his final form is based on a quote from Phoenix Wright.
- Fus Ro Dah is shouted when the player uses the Unrelenting Force in Skyrim.
- Going Rambo obviously refers to the Rambo movies.
- The dancing archer who shot down Bowser is from Forbidden Forest 3.
- When Bowser uses Certain Kill, he says: "And now, you die!" This is Chilled's voice from DBZ Abridged: Episode of Bardock.
- Bowser's skill level in CD-I Super Guns Fight is equal to 70/150 (Elite)
