Prince Bowser Koopa Jr. (Also called Bowser Jr., or Bowser Junior) is the child of Koopa King Bowsers. He is the official contender for the Bowser's throne. Bowser Jr. is allowed to live in Bowser's fortress. He is, so to speak, the right hand of his father. Because he also helps in the fight against Mario.

His first appearance was in Super Mario Sunshine, which came out in 2002 for the GameCube. His next big appearance was in New Super Mario Bros. Bowser Junior's last appearance so far was in Mario Sports Mix, which came out in 2011 for the Wii. Like many other characters from the Mario series, it was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto.


Bowser Jr. is a little koopa who is still a child. He shares a few similarities with his father, Bowser. Junior has red hair and red eyebrows. He owns a bib with a mouth with sharp teeth painted on it. He pulls this bib over his mouth every now and then to make him look more threatening. Like every other Koopa, it has a tank on its back. But this is not a normal Koopa tank, but a tank with spikes. He most likely inherited this from his father. He also has two black bracelets, each attached to one arm. For a long time it was suspected that the Koopalings were Bowser Jr.'s siblings, but now Shigeru Miyamoto has announced that this is not the case.

Bowser is the father of Bowser Juniors. Jr. has a strong, and above all, good bond with him. His father often lets him do jobs. Because of the fact that Bowser Jr. has only one father and no mother, he often kidnaps Peach to play mother.
Peach does not belong to the Bowser Jr. family, on the contrary, because she is kidnapped and held captive by his father so that he can take the mushroom kingdom under the nail. However, Peach is considered a mother by Junior. For example, in Mario Superstar Baseball he wants to kidnap the princess so that she can play mother for him. But Peach sees it all a little differently and doesn't have a particularly good relationship with Bowser Junior.

Bowser Jr. hates Mario as much as his father does. In New Super Mario Bros. he wants to get Mario out of the way once and for all.
Luigi is also hated by Bowser Jr., but not as much as Mario, because Bowser Jr. does not find Luigi as dangerous as his brother. Still, it's not that difficult for Luigi to beat Bowser Jr.
