Bowser (st round)HP: 50 Attack Power: 8 (Fire blast) 6 (Stamp/slash Attacks) Def: 1
Well this first battle against Bowser may seem tough but it's really a piece of cake for now. For the first couple rounds just use regular attacks (also, make sure Watt is your current partner). After Bowser uses the Star Rod to make himself invincible have Mario use the Star Beam to void that power temporarily. Now's your chance to attack! Watch out when Bowser uses his attack where he crushes Mario because it'll temporarily disable one of your attacks! Also his swiping attack will also poison Mario so be careful! Repeat this pattern after he regains the Star Rod's power until you beat him this round.
Bowser (Final Battle)HP: 99 Attack Power: 10 (Fire blast) 8 (Stamp/slash Attacks) Def: 2
Wow this is definitely the final battle with Bowser himself! This is going to be one hell of a long battle, so braceyourself for a fight! Basically, he's a much stronger version of the battle you had with him inside the castle moments earlier. It's highly recommended you avoid his Stamp Attack by pressing A before impact. If you're not careful he'll disable one of your battle options for a few rounds! The battle plan here is the same as last time whenever Bowser uses the Star Rod use the Star Beam. Since it won't affect Bowser, you'll see a quick scene with Twink rescuing the Princess, then having to fight with Kammy. In that fight just use their abilities to get through it all. After that's over Peach will wish for Mario and that will charge up the Star Spirits' powers. They will appear and charge Mario up giving him the Peach Beam. Use the Peach Beam in battle to void the Star Rod's powers. Use that time to hit Bowser quickly with strong attacks. Watch out because when you weaken him enough he'll use the Star Rod to recover a good chunk of his HP (as if fighting him was bad enough). Keep on repeating the above pattern of using the Peach Beam then attacking to get through this battle. Also, it's agood thing if you have several Life Shrooms so you'll keep getting revived after Bowser takes all your HP. Continue the @ssault until you finally defeat Bowser for good and beat this game!
