During Mario Kart season, Bowser retires from kidnapping Peach for a while and competes in races for the sake of sport. He is the King of the Koopa Troop and is bulky. He is always in the heavyweight class. His Special Item on Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is the Bowser Shell. Bowser is the one of the heaviest drivers and therefore his vehicles are the slowest to accelerate. However, his top speed is one of the fastest, only to be rivaled by R.O.B.. His skeleton is Dry Bowser and his son is Bowser Junior, all with "fiery" personalities.
Bowser,the King of Koopas, looks like Koopa Troopa, only much stronger. He has a red haired mane, a huge green shell with spikes on it, and black chains with spikes on his arms, neck and legs. He also has horns coming out of his head, and sharp teeth and claws.
