King Bowser Koopa
, a fictional character
from Nintendo video games
, is Mario
's arch nemesis. He constantly kidnaps Princess Peach Toadstool
since his first appearance in Super Mario Brothers
. In Super Mario Bros 3
and Super Mario World
, he had seven children who helped him. In Super Mario World 2
we learn that Mario and Bowser first encountered each other when they were babies. In Super Mario RPG
Bowser teams up with Mario, Peach, and their two new friends Mallow and Geno in order to get his castle back from Smithy.
In Super Mario 64, he steals Peach's castle. In Yoshi's Story, he converts Yoshi's Island into a storybook, and in Paper Mario he steals Peach's castle again with the Star Rod.
Bowser also appears in secondary Mario Games like Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, The Mario Party Series, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis and Super Smash Bros. Melee. Bowser never succeeds in his goal because either Mario or Yoshi always foils his plans.
