How to Beat

He will start hopping once the fight starts while simultaneously throwing his hat towards you. His hat has boxing gloves so this makes it even harder for you to dodge.

You can fight back using Cappy. Once he throws his hat, throw Cappy back towards his hat. This will result to Bowser’s hat being knocked down. He will be in shock that his hat has been knocked down. Take advantage of this and use his hat against him.

After this, Bowser will then start throwing the shadow versions of his hat at you. Focus on the real hat so that you can take control over it again and attack him.

He will start to ground pound and then throw large blocks at you. Knock the spheres and keep pushing forward.
