Bowser remains as the game's heaviest character and the second largest character model (Ridley is the largest). This makes it difficult for him to be KO'ed, yet, an easier target to hit. Because of his weight, he has good horizontal recovery but not very good vertical recovery. Due to his size and weight, Bowser relies on pure ground strength and not his speed. He also has difficulty in avoiding projectiles. His Smash Attacks are slow, but extremely powerful and have great priority. His Special Moves allow him to use a projectile, his Fire Breath and to quickly fall to the ground, where he is more effective. Bowser can also crawl, but it is not effective.
