Battles with Bowser are often considered boss fights. In M.U.G.E.N, this is no exception, as its brute strength and very damaging Hypers will put most at a stand. The best (or worst, in the case of Mario) part is that its A.I will ensure domination of the Mushroom Kingdom.

MidoriGemini's soundpacks





Bowser is a four-button character with a moveset that is mostly based off of Bowser's Super Smash Bros. Brawl incarnation; it is both powerful and somewhat combo-heavy, complimented by its massive size that takes up nearly half the screen's width, allowing it to cover a large area with its attacks and almost guarantee a grab at the start of the match.

All of Bowser's moves have very high priority and the ability to reach quite a long distance, something that is compounded by the character's sheer size. Its projectiles are large and fast. Its Hypers are very strong, most notably Super Torch and Hyper Torch Charge, which both give Bowser Super Armor during the whole animation and deal significantly high damage; they can both be combo'd into, which is made worse when considering Hyper Torch Charge can nearly K.O. the average character when fully charged. Shell Spin, while not quite as powerful as the character's other Hypers, grants Bowser complete invulnerability, making it an ideal counter move.

Bowser uses a custom A.I. that is notable for how challenging it is. At the beginning of the round, the A.I. will often take advantage of its massive size and use its grab to deal a sizeable amount of damage; it may also use either Super Torch or Hyper Torch Charge in an attempt to catch its opponent off-guard and deal massive damage in the process. An A.I. patch exists that reduces the A.I.'s difficulty.
