A mysterious being found in a dimensional rift in Monstro Town, he challenges Mario to a battle and attacks with [[Franchise/FinalFantasy four elemental Crystals]]. His entire scenario was [[http://legendsoflocalization.com/culex-is-quite-different-in-japanese-super-mario-rpg/ completely rewritten]] by [[{{Woolseyism}} Ted Woolsey]] beyond that. In the original Japanese he is "the lord of all evil" who is concerned about an unfamiliar power Mario and his allies possess that he has never sensed before, and challenges them to see that power. In the English translation he is a knight from the world of Vanda who sought to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom, but as Mario's world is uninhabitable for his kind, he departs home after a duel with the Mushroom Kingdom's strongest warrior, Mario.

* KleptomaniacHero: You can get called out on it - after assisting a man to his house in Rose Town, he asks if the treasure chests in his house are safe. If you tell them someone took them he's GenreSavvy enough to realize only Mario could jump high enough to get them, and you have the option to come clean about it.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In his second fight, he realizes he has a better chance of winning if he took away the gang's items to keep them from healing.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Smithy Gang is quite intelligent when it comes to their goals. They regularly gather intelligence on Mario and his actions, lower-ranked minions often run away to tell Smithy what's going on, and eventually they recognize patterns in Mario's actions and start acting to manipulate and trick him.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While it may just be coincidence, it does seem oddly well-timed that Mario happened to be pre-occupied out of town on other business when he and the Shysters invaded the town.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Unlike most of his cohorts, Bowyer doesn't find it fair that the party gangs up on him three-on-one. He fixes the problem by locking the button command the player's used most, often preventing them from using healing items or attacking, depending on which command he uses.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He's the first of the gang to realize that letting Mario and co. gather the Star Pieces might be detrimental to their plans. He catches onto Mario's pattern of visiting towns and thus impersonates the people of Seaside Town and gets Mario to retrieve the next Star Piece for him. If not for Johnny's intervention and the Axem Rangers running late in giving him a lift, he might've actually gotten away scot-free too.



* CoolShades[=/=]SinisterShades: Axem Black. He even gets upset when they break when he's defeated.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Whenever a Star Piece is located it rises up, spins around Mario's head for several seconds and then drops into his hands. The Axem Rangers snatch the star during the process, leaving Mario to look around wondering what happened before he notices them.
* EvilFeelsGood[=/=]ForTheEvulz: They fight for the forces of evil and claim they like it.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He collapses the bridge to Bowser's Keep right after claiming it in the name of the Smithy Gang to keep "nosy" Mario out of their new stronghold.

* {{Badass}}: Well, it's Mario, after all. He was beating up monsters three times his size long before this game; now he just gets to do it with a wider variety of weapons.



* {{Badass}}: He's a living doll who fights with arm cannons and from them fires both bullets, cannon shells, and lasers.



* {{Badass}}: He's Bowser, after all. His comic relief and PetTheDog moments do nothing to hide the fact he's a dinosaur-turtle covered in spikes who rips enemies apart with his claws.



* ActionGirl: Princess Toadstool becomes surprisingly competent in this game!



* {{Badass}}: He beats your party members up with his bare hands, and they ''hurt''.



* BarefistedMonk: He wields no weapons, being a martial artist.

* {{Badass}}: Strong enough to take on the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, a weather-controlling prince, a guardian of the Star Road, the Koopa King, and the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, and give them a heck of a fight.



* BigBad: He's the main antagonist of the game, acting to take over Mario's world.

* LightningBruiser: He will attack when hit, he can take a hit well despite his size, and he has ridiculously strong attacks. And it's taken UpToEleven in the third fight when he uses both Valor Up and Vigor Up.



* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: You have to land on his trap spring in order to advance through the mines.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In his second fight, he realizes he has a better chance of winning if he took away the gang's items to keep them from healing.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Currant Juice, which is event a hint in a quiz later in the game.

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Queen Valentina is an awful, awful woman who is trying to take over the kingdom.



* {{Jerkass}}: Valentina is rude to everyone, especially Dodo.

* {{Jerkass}}: Valentina is rude to everyone, especially Dodo. Although Dodo isn't really friendly either.



* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Queen Valentina is an awful, awful woman who is trying to take over the kingdom.


Added DiffLines:

* SkippableBoss: Dodo can be fought up to three times. The first time can be skipped if you beat the trophy minigame. The second time, you can just run him over with your star. In the third battle, Dodo will [[spoiler: fight the party member in the middle until he's defeated]]. Then after you've hit Valentina enough, Dodo will join in, but you don't have to defeat him to win.
