Bowser era coming to an end?

We have seen quite a few eras of villains in the mario series and personally it seems like Bowser's reign as top villain is coming to an end. Lately, Bowser has been a joke in most of his games he's been in and he doesn't seem like the villain he used be.

I could be wrong, but no one lasts forever and in my case the new bad guy or main villain could be Giga Bowser, or possibly if done right Master Hand.

Bowser is usually a villain in the main Mario games, I think in the spin offs is where they try new bad guys

Yeah, Bowser is still the main bad guy in the main series and the spinoffs like the RPGs are where they have new bad guys like Cackeletta and Fawful. And also in Super Mario Bros 2. with Wart. To be honest though, it's nice to see some new bad guys once in a while. The Bowser kidnapping Peach thing is so overused to where it's not even charming anymore, just repetitve.

I get what your saying, about the concept of bowser kidnapping peach being repeative, but I still love it.


oh and bowser is only taken as a joke in the RPGs, which is done on purpose to make the games funnier.. and it works also just cause he isn't some super serious villian all the time doesn't mean he'll stop being the main bad guy. Take team rocket from the pokeman series, serious for one episode and then a joke for 12 seasons straight.. and look, they havn't even been close to being replaced

I don't like how he sometimes 'teams up' with Mario to take down a larger foe. It just proves how petty Bowser can be. It leaves me worried that he may go the way of Wario.

I do like what Pokeman said about Team Rocket, though. It comforted me.

Bowser isn't close to being knocked off the top spot for a long ways to come, and the reason is simple: Mario. Bowser may not be the original Mario villain, but he is the most prominent one. Consider this: until SMB3, Bowser appeared in as many games as Wart and Donkey Kong, with Tatanga coming in a year later, and Wario shortly after that. Nintendo had plenty of opportunities to replace him by bringing back any of the others for games on the Super Nintendo, but Bowser remained the only Mario villain in the main series on the SNES, N64...every console ever made by Nintendo.

Mario is the most recognized fictional character ever. As long as Bowser is associated with Mario, he will remain the biggest, baddest video game villain of all time. A few less than evil roles in spin-off series won't harm him; the main series is the series that gets the most attention and respect, and his roles in those games are always as top dog, with the possible exception of Super Mario World 2, where he is a cranky baby.

I guess you have a really big point there but it seems like Baby Bowser is starting to take the role of main villain. Eras do come to an end and Bowser may last a couple more years but I just can't see it lasting the whole time while mario bros is around.

Baby Bowser is, in fact, the real Bowser, just at a younger age. Bowser Jr. however is a different person, and i don't think he has been the main boss in any game(correct me if I'm wrong), just a high ranking baddie.

This.

Baby Bowser is just Bowser, like how Baby Mario is Mario. If you're thinking of Bowser Jr., and you think Bowser Jr. will ever replace Bowser, you make me laugh.
