Bowser's HistoryEdit

Bowser had first appeared in Super Mario Bros (1985). This game had an extremely basic plot for its time. Bowser had kidnapped Peach, and Mario is forced to get
her back. In Japan, Bowser is known as Koopa. Actually, Bowser's first "baby" appearance was Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. He is usually the main villian in Mario games, with the exception of Super Paper Mario (2007), in which Bowser will actually join Mario's adventure as he progresses through the game. The main villian of that game was Count Bleck. Like Mario, Bowser's first 3D appearance was Super Mario 64 (1996). There, he had stolen all the castles Power Stars, as well as Princess Peach. Even though it has been many years since the original Super Mario Bros, Bowser has not began to like Mario a lot. In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (1996), Bowser was not the main villian, only toward the begnning of the game. Later, a villian named Smithy takes over, controlling the rest of the game. Bowser also does appear in practically all Mario series games:
