Bowser, also known as King Koopa, is the unquestioned ruler of the Koopa Troop, and arch-enemy of Mario. Bowser's lifelong goal has been to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, sometimes even the entire universe, and he almost always attempts to do so by capturing Princess Peach, who he does not destroy due to the fact that he developed a huge crush on her. Instead, he seeks to put an end to Mario, who is mainly the one foiling his plans. Once Peach is taken out of power, he wreaks havoc across the kingdom, only to eventually be thwarted by Mario and his friends. He also has a son named Bowser Jr., and seven minions called the Koopalings.
