Bowser (also known as King Koopa or King Bowser) is the main antagonist in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.
Bowser is mostly yellow and orange in color. He wears a large, spiky, green Koopa shell and has two horns on his head. We wears spiky bracelets on his wrists.
Bowser appears only three times total in the game.
Bowser has three attacks.
- One is where Bowser will attempt to breathe fire at Mario
- The Second is where if Mario is far enough away, Bowser will start dashing toward Mario.
- Finally, Bowser may sometimes attempt to stomp on Mario.
Bowser: "Tough luck, Mario! Princess Toadstool isn't here...Bwa ha ha!! Go ahead..just try to grab me by the tail!"
Bowser: "You'll never be able to swing ME around! A wimp like you won't throw me out of here! Never! Ha!"
Bowser takes a deep breath and...
As Bowser said earlier, Mario can grab him by the tail and...
The player can do this by keeping the punch-button pressed and rotating the control pad. Once Bowser is aligned with a bomb and has enough velocity, release the punch-button to throw him.
Bowser: "Mario! You again! Well that's just fine..I've been looking for something to fry with my fire breath!"
Bowser: "Your Star Power is useless against me! Your friends are all trapped within the walls..."
Bowser: "And you'll never see the Princess again! Bwa ha ha ha!"
Bowser: "Noooo! You've really beaten me this time, Mario! I can't stand losing to you!"
Bowser: "My troops...worthless! They've turned over all the Power Stars! What?! There are 120 in all???"
Bowser: "Amazing! There were some in the castle that I missed??!!"
Bowser: "Now I see peace returning to the world... Oooo! I really hate that! I can't watch.. I'm outta here!"
Bowser: "Just you wait until next time. Until then, keep that Control Stick smokin'! Bwaaa ha ha!"
After his defeat and final speech, Bowser turns into the 121th star. Mario will pick it up and fly off with it. In the credits after it, the star turns into Peach.
The transforming painting
Occasionally paintings of Bowser can be found in the castle.
Some of them start out as Peach paintings which transform into Bowser when Mario approaches them, while others stay the way they are.
