“Gah ha ha ha!!!! I've been waiting for you, Mario! Bwa ha ha ha har! The strongest! The coolest! Behold the glory that the great great Evil King Bowser!! It's time for me to beat these foolish ideas out of you! Saving Peach? Please!! Watch this and weep!!”
Bowser??? is a boss in the game Paper Mario. It is a large, mechanical effigy of Bowser controlled by the Koopa Bros., but is actually weaker than the Koopa Bros. themselves. It only has one attack which is hitting Mario with its hand. It has more defense than most enemies, but Kooper, Bombette, and Mario's Hammer attack can damage it.
Bowser??? seems to be made out of cloth and what may be cardboard or metal or maybe even wood, and his eyes are buttons. Its purpose was to fool Mario into thinking that it was indeed the Koopa King (to create the illusion that it was invincible, as the real Bowser was at the time). The fact that Bowser??? was false was revealed by its overall appearance, and was proven when voices were heard from inside its abdomen. They were arguing that someone was "being a hog" and should "move over", which clearly suggested there were multiple occupants inside, in a manner akin to a Chinese marching dragon or pantomime horse costume. After being defeated, Bowser??? breaks into pieces and falls into the prison cell used to hold the Bob-ombs (which the Koopa Bros. also fall into when they are defeated). A picture of Princess Peach can be seen inside Bowser???'s shell when it is defeated.
