Bowser, also known as King Koopa, is a video game character and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise. In Japan, the character is known as Koopa (クッパ, Kuppa?) and bears the title of Daimaō (大魔王?, lit. "Great Demon King"). In the United States, the character was first referred to as "Bowser, King of the Koopa" and "The sorcerer king" in the Super Mario Bros. instruction manual. Bowser is the leader and most powerful of the turtle-like Koopa race and is the greedy archnemesis of Mario beginning with his first appearance, in the game Super Mario Bros. His ultimate goals are to marry Princess Peach, defeat Mario, and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom. Since his debut, he has appeared in almost every Mario franchise game, usually in an antagonistic role. Currently, Bowser is voiced by Kenny James.
