Guardian of the Sol Emeralds.

Throughout the years, there have been at least two different portrayals of Bowser. In the RPGs, he was a comical villain, and somewhat of a bumbling idiot. He also had all the qualities of an anti-hero; the arrogance, the tough-guy attitude, and the selfish motive of fighting against other villains just so he could kidnap Peach and/or conquer the world himself. In most of the platformers, however, Bowser was completely evil, and there was pretty much nothing comical about him. My favorite of the two? While I DO like how evil he's become in some of the recent Mario games (such as Super Mario Galaxy), I prefer his personality in the RPG games.
