Bowser Koopa (born 1939) is a 75-year-old Koopa who is an enemy of Mario, a ruler of the Koopa Kingdom, and the father of the Koopalings and Bowser, Jr..


Bowser Koopa was born to Morton Koopa, Sr. on November 27, 1939. When he was less than a year old, he stole a tree from Yoshi Island, causing some Yoshies to attack him and take it back. As a child, he always wanted to become a photographer, like Weegee. However, he was engaged to Princess Toadstool of the Mushroom Kingdom in an effort to end hostilities between the two kingdoms, and then he became the heir to the Koopa throne when Toadstool broke the agreement by murdering all of Bowser's older siblings and trying to kill Bowser himself at their wedding.

Very soon after that, Bowser retaliated against the Mushroom Kingdom by kidnapping Princess Toadstool, which resulted in his first encounter with Mario. Bowser later had to become king when his father passed away in 1982, and in 1985, he officially began the Mushroom War by launching a 28-year-long series of attacks on the Mushroom Kingdom. In 2040, he was frozen in ice while fighting the forces of Evil Link on the Southern Continent of Eluryh. After that, everyone thought he was dead until he was found and revived 9,548 years later.


He has very strong laugh which he often uses to kill people. However, it only works if you hear it, so Fat Mario and Gay Luigi haven't died. Also, as you will see below, some people are unaffected by his laugh
