|Hammer Slam Bowser|
|The Mario of a Broken Future|
Hammer Slam Bowser is from a future timeline that was fragmented from the main Mario one during the events of Super Mario Bros: Multiverse Degeneration. In this timeline, Bowser is part of the M Resistance, a group set on usurping King Mario from power. Joined by Turbo Charge Donkey Kong, the two are the last of the M Resistance.
The character was originally created for Skylanders SuperChargers, but literally nobody on this wiki cares about that game with some possibly notable exceptions.
During the degeneration of the Multiverse, a brand new timeline where Mario went mad with power was created. Although many of Mario's friends went against him, they were unable to stop him from seizing the Mushroom Kingdom throne and destroying Bowser's and Sarasaland's Kingdom. The M Resistance was formed in Princess Lily's Underground Kingdom, but over time members of the resistance were captured, leaving only Bowser and Donkey Kong who had dubbed themselves "Hammer Slam Bowser" and "Turbo Charge Donkey Kong" to fight against King Mario's forces.
Skylanders (with commentary from Exotoro)
Kaos is back with his most sinister weapon yet – the Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction (nice name, asshole), powered by The Darkness itself! Fortunately (for Activision), a special team of Skylanders known as the SuperChargers (aka this year's line of toys) has been assembled to pilot an incredible (say that while your fingers imitate quotation marks) fleet of vehicles with the power to travel through the destruction – over land, sea, and sky! But with Skylands on the verge of collapse (oh thank god), the Skylanders have reached out across all dimensions (so... only Nintendo then?) to call for reinforcements. Answering the call is the most unexpected duo – Donkey Kong and Bowser! (unexpected? debatable) Using their own elite vehicles to magically travel between worlds, they have joined the epic battle against Kaos and The Darkness!
It's Bowser, but he wearing armor and has a giant hammer that looks sort of like a Koopa Shell with spikes. Except the spikes are on the part of the hammer you're meant to slam into the ground, so it doesn't make a ton of sense on how it's actually functional as a hammer. Speaking of Koopa Shells, his armor seems made entirely out of silver, spiky Koopa Shells. It's kind of weird.
Hammer Slam Bowser appears as a trophy in Jake's Super Smash Bros.. His appearance as a trophy marks one of the few references to the Skylanders series within the game; the other being Turbo Charge Donkey Kong's appearance as both an alternate costume of Donkey Kong and a trophy.

|After the connection between the Skylands' Portals were severed, an Undead Skylander by the name of Mags sent out a distress signal. This signal reached all corners of the globe, calling all the Skylanders to her location to assist in dealing with the return of Kaos. Little did she know that a rift would open and pull Bowser from the Mushroom Kingdom into this new dimension. He was transformed into Hammer Slam Bowser by touching a Rift Engine left behind by a defeated Captain Blubberbeard.|
Powers and Abilities
Bowser can breathe fire and summon Koopas, using their shells to attack other enemies. He has a giant hammer he also uses. He's of the fire element, so I guess that means something.
