Bowser (known as Koopa in Japan) is the main villain of the Super Mario series of video games. Debuting as early as the original Super Mario Bros., he is the king of the Koopas, who frequently plots to kidnap Princess Peach (with his reason for doing so varying depending on the game).

Bowser appears in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2 as the boss of SMB3.


Bowser's AI is edited from Guts Man, and thus, he has only two attacks. The first of these is launching three fireballs in quick succession in the player's direction. The fireballs are spaced out enough that the player cannot jump over all three at once, but close together enough that landing between two of them and jumping back out again without simply being hit by them can be incredibly difficult. Bowser will also occasionally jump around the boss room, causing the ground to shake every time he lands.

Other Notes


  • Bowser's fireballs originally used the sprites from Super Mario Bros. 3, but the coding kept messing up with them, so they were scrapped.
  • Bowser was supposed to have one more attack, which was similar to Guts Man's double jump move where he brought down a rock to throw at the player, but instead of that, three or four boulders would fall onto the ground from above. Due to the author's very limited coding knowledge, this was never implemented.
  • Bowser's main weakness to Super Arrow was a reference to a robot-themed Super Mario Super Show episode (Episode 64: "Robo Koopa"), where the Mario Bros. fought Bowser in a mecha-suit. The Mario Bros.' mecha-suit had plungers for hands, and the Super Arrow resembles a plunger.
