In the Paper Mario series, Bowser is portrayed as a funny, dim witted character who usually is regarded as a minor threat by others, despite him being a major boss in many other Mario games. He actually was a major boss in Paper Mario, but was reduced to being a minor boss in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In Super Paper Mario he becomes one of the playable Four Heroes, and is noted for his large attack power and lack of speed.

In Paper Mario, he steals the Star Rod , Princess Peach's castle, and Princess Peach herself. He uses the Star Rod to raise her castle up into the stratosphere. The first time, he actually boosts his defense by 1, the second time by 3, and the third time he is totally invincible. After he is defeated at the hands of Mario and the Star Spirits, Kammy Koopa makes him even more powerful. This time, even the Star Beam won't work, so Peach and Twink take out Kammy, Peach makes a wish for the Star Beam to become more powerful, and it becomes the Peach Beam, which ultimately leads to Bowser's defeat. His breath attack does between 8 to 10 damage. I find the best partner to use is Watt because she can do five damage every turn without wasting flower points. This game revealed that Bowser had a diary.

Bowser is the final boss of all paper mario, he is the one who has kidnapped the Princess several times and also stole the wand star, who has the power to grant wishes, mario defeated because he was very strong, but with the star power in the hands of mario, may disappear its extreme power. Also abduction to the stars by putting them on each level, each more difficult, and that is where all the adventure begins.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year DoorEdit

Bowser is a minor boss in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and is also a playable character at the end of some chapters, like Peach, but only for short periods of time. He finds out about the Crystal Stars near the beginning of Chapter 2, and unsuccessfully tries to get them throughout the entire game. He finds you after a match in Glitz Pit, and challenges you (Note: This does not affect scores in Glitz Pit, but does give you experience if you beat him). He ends up not getting any of the Crystal Stars, and you beat him again later in the Palace of Shadow after Sir Grodus.

Super Paper MarioEdit

In Super Paper Mario, he is forcibly (but happily) married to Peach by Count Bleck, who creates the Chaos Heart from the marriage. You find him in Chapter 3-1 as a boss. After he is defeated he becomes one of the Four Heroes. His attack is double whatever the rest of the team is and he can breath fire. His final battle is against O'Chunks., and in chapter 7 you lose Bowser (you also lose Luigi and Peach) and you have to battle him again in chapter 7-2 to get him back (this time he is stronger and has new attacks)

Tattle InformationEdit

Bowser's tattle information from Glitzville in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door:

"Mario's fated enemy. Bowser the Koopa King is a foe to be feared. His typical turf is NOT Glitzville."

Bowser's tattle information from the Palace of Shadow:

"Mario's sworn enemy. He's a big galoot who's come to swipe Princess Peach and the Crystal Stars."
