He is often overlooked of his powers since his diabolical appearence sporting long spikes from his shell, horns on his head, and razor sharp teeth on a body known to be only muscle.
He is such a powerful creature that it does not fit my mind how can Mario woop his @$$!?
Throughout the many games he has been in, he has been known to breath fire in many fashions, levitiate from the ground, become invisible for short periods of time, run extremely fast, and has brute strength to back him up. He has been known to be a wizard for all these things since he is an expert at wand handling and the ablity to control a large mass of individuals to oversee his kingdom. His technical skills are superb since he has created many machines throughout his life trying to kick Mario's sorry @$$. He has survived many of the things Mario has done to him including surviving many pitfalls, lava pools, and explosions while using his machines. He is a master theif and is capable of entering worlds through holograpghic paintings to steel golden stars.
Bowser will never die and the day he dies is the day Mario dies too.
Mario: (Bounces on Bowser's head and pulls switch to drop Bowser on some hot lava)
Bowser: OWWW! AWWW!!! We shall meet again!!
Mario: (Recieves a golden star) YAY!
No you suck.
