Why is bowser so dumb?
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:26:29 AM »
With his power, wealth and influence, he could kill of all toads, get peach, banish/execute mario, and generally achieve all of his goal. His stupidity is his only obstacle. So, why is he so dumb, and, if he knows that his plans aren't working, why doesn't he hire an advisor?

Why am I responding to that. But eh. I think bowser isn't what we currently think as a ruler. It's a noble one. He fights with respect for his opponents and give them a chance to win because it's in his morals. He isn't stupid, he's just a proud turtle.

I'd argue he's less dumb and more just basic intelligence to which the world he lives in. I mean if we apply real world logic to half the *bleep* in this franchise then there are A LOT of stupid Toads people around.

With his power

Power of what? Transform into a giant pussy like in 3D World. Bowser has always been a joke , and the way to beat him in his debut certifies this.

wealth

What wealth? Everybody seems to be rich and white in the Mushroom Kingdom, everybody seems to be able to afford anything Bowser has and more.

and influence

Over who? EVERYBODY HATES BOWSER.

Peach hates him, Mario Hates him, Luigi hates him, Rosalina surely didn't appreciate he stole the power stars and left her and the Lumas stranded , and Daisy surely hates him as well lmao.

Honestly , if thinking it thoughtly Bowser is really a joke, now that everybody has , including Daisy,  beaten his ass in 1 way or another at least 1 time.

Bowser's army freaking adores the guy. It's everyone he *bleep*s with that can't stand him.

Or at least I would say that but due to the inconsistencies and negative continuity nature of the franchise how people react to him and how competent he is varies.

Super-strength, fire breath, power over space and time, the list goes on.

What wealth? Everybody seems to be rich in the Mushroom Kingdom, everybody seems to be able to afford anything Bowser has and more.
The wealth of his nation/planet, that is great enough that it can survive wars back to back, and the wealth he uses to build dozens of racetracks, and a solid gold train, and to buy all the stuff he ought to have bought for all of his children/niblings.

In the Mushroom Kingdom, coins are just left lying around, pop out of flowers and bricks. I think everyone can get money if they need it. Also, there aren't really a lot of wars going on, and most of the racetracks are just a few roads around his castle (Not like Mario Circuit or Royal Raceway).

I wouldn't necessarily say that Mario and Luigi "hates" him, moreso that they are just disgruntled with him whenever he kidnaps Peach or causes chaos in the Mushroom Kingdom. They don't seem to have any issues with him participating in sports or go-karting and are occasionally pretty forgiving to some of his actions like the ending of Mario Party DS for example.

It is quite probable that the koopa kingdom put the blocks there as mini autobanks. The free coins are probably the money of toads before they were transformed.

There's only one person here who deserved to be compared to MatPat and I'm supposed to avoid talking about them. You apologize to Mr. Grad this instant.

The manual for Mario 1 officially stated Bowser dabbled in black magic.
"Hey, wait a minute! You're not Joel!"
"Thaaaat's riiiight!"

In the Mushroom Kingdom, coins just pop out of flowers.
The gold flower is probably either a small terraformer, or a shoddy teleporter

I wasn't talking about the Gold Flower, I was talking about the small ones that appear on grass levels that sometimes give out coins.

Definitely New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and perhaps New Super Mario Bros. U. Not all of the flowers do it, but there are some that do it. I think one of the ones in the World 5 cannon level does.
