Trophy Description

Bowser, king of the Koopas, is a true powerhouse. Although he may try the same plan more than once, he always has the willpower to go forward. However, he is a little gullible, often being fooled by other villains and even members of his Koopa Troop. Still, Bowser is a dangerous foe with strength to show.
