“GAHAHA! See that? All Bowser, baby!”
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Bowser grows giant four times. When he is crushed, Mario and Luigi must go to the Rump Command, where they play a minigame to spike Bowser's adrenaline. Once this is done, Bowser will grow large enough to fight whatever is threatening him. The first time this happens, Bowser attempts to fire a Banzai Bill at his castle, but the castle activates rockets installed by Fawful and lands on top of Bowser. However, he grows giant and lifts the castle up. He then fights it as a boss. Later, he is exploring Blubble Lake when he comes across a large propeller, belonging to the Tower of Yikk. After he activates the propeller by sneezing, the tower comes to life and stomps on him. Bowser is enlarged once again to fight it. Later he must battle the Fawful Express at Bowser Castle and a robotic, "Fawfulized" version of Peach's Castle called Super Peach's Castle.
At a few points in the game, Bowser requests that he be enlarged, only to be reminded that it only works in mortal danger.
During Giant Battles, the Nintendo DS is held sideways, with Bowser to the left on the Touch Screen and the boss on the other screen. All of Giant Bowser's attacks are executed with the stylus or mic.
