Bowser's Kingdom is the thirteenth kingdom visited in Super Mario Odyssey. It is the home of Bowser and the greater location of his castle. Unlike most games, which feature a Western European design for his castle, this castle is a lush, flowering traditional Japanese castle, with a concentric series of walls and baileys, a traditional garden and tea house, and a central keep. Instead of the usual lava, its moats are filled with poison.
At the end of the kingdom, Mario and Cappy must defeat RoboBrood, a giant robot piloted by the Broodals. After defeating the Broodals, Mario and Cappy visit the Moon Kingdom to chase after Bowser and Princess Peach.
Don't run afoul of the Stairface Ogres that guard this kingdom. When they spot an intruder, they bring their huge mallets down, no questions asked. On the other hand, you have to admire their tenacity and work ethic. The scars on their faces show they don't give up easily.
Beautiful Tile Work
This kingdom's architecture is unique. Roofs are made of heavy, layered tiles that will not budge even if walked upon. They also create a uniformity in the overall design, enhancing the beauty of the palace.
Though you can move along the roofs, this palace rests quite high in the sky, and if you fall off, you will most definitely die. It's not the surest footing either, so be careful.
Statues Guard the Court
The palace tower highlights the inner citadel, and the gate leading to it is guarded by fearsome statues. The statues are fashioned after gods of wind and thunder, the perfect motif for a sky palace, and since they are modeled on Bowser, the ruler of this kingdom, they serve as a warning to foes here and abroad.
Surrounding the inner citadel are the second and third courts. The second court is especially fortified, with many cannons to repel invaders. Cannonballs often roll along the ground, and many tourists fall trying to evade them. Legends speak of invaders repelling the cannonballs with spears, but no mere mortal could hope to do this, so try not to get too close!
An Oasis of Calm
This elegant garden is a balm for the brutality of this kingdom and will help you forget all the hardships you faced to reach it. You can even buy souvenirs, so be sure you stop by!
The Hole Thing
All along the walls, these holes were meant to allow defenders to shoot at invaders, but nowadays you're more likely to find a demon or a snake coming out than an arrow.
Three Keys to the Kingdom
Enemies marked with an asterisk (*) are only found in bonus areas.
There are two paintings in this kingdom. One is located at the left building near the Main Courtyard Entrance's Checkpoint Flag, at the left side of the wall. It takes the player either to the Snow Kingdom Clifftop at the Snow Kingdom or the Diving Platform at the Seaside Kingdom, and it can be accessed after completing the main game.
There are a total of 64 Power Moons (61 regular Power Moons and 1 Multi Moon) in this kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 37 Power Moons and the Multi Moon. After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 7 more Power Moons become available to collect, including one from the kingdom's Hint Art and one from using a painting found in the Cascade Kingdom. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 17 additional Power Moons to be accessible.
In order to progress to the Moon Kingdom, the player must collect at least 8 Power Moons.
