I've more than once commented on the weird relationship Bowser and the Princess have. It's not worth going into all that yet again -- I'm sure you'll read about it elsewhere on this site if you stick around.

He is certainly the most interesting of Mario's various rogues. There's a reason he's stuck around for as long as he has. Hard to do better than a pissed off turtle, covered and spikes, who can breathe fire.

Maybe if he has the ability to shoot lasers from his head.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
