Bowser Jr. is a character from the Mario video game series. He is the son of Bowser and prince of the Koopas. He is known for inventing machines, painting graffiti, and doing what he can to make his father proud. He first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine. Since then, he has become a main character and appears in most of the Mario video game series.
Bowser Jr. first appears in Super Mario Sunshine, where he disturbs Mario's vacation with Princess Peach on Delfino Isle by making the island dirty and kidnapping Peach. He makes himself look like Mario, so the people of the island put Mario in jail. He kidnapped Peach because Bowser made him think that Peach was his mother, and he had to keep her safe. He later finds out that Peach is not actually his mother, but he still wants to fight Mario again in the future to make his father proud.
He later appears in New Super Mario Bros., where he is the boss of the tower levels at the middle of each world.
Jr. appears in Super Mario Galaxy 2, where he helps his father in battling Mario like in Super Mario Galaxy.
Bowser Jr. also appears a lot in the Mario spin-off games. He appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii. He also appears in some of the Mario sports games. He appears as a mini-boss in Mario Party 9. He has his own space on the boards where players have to play a minigame with him. He appears in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games along with its sequel Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. He appears in Paper Mario: Sticker Star as a boss, and in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team as a boss in the Battle Ring. He has appeared in nearly every spin-off title since his introduction.
