Watch Mario beat Bowser 18 times in 4 minutes

Mario got his start battling Donkey Kong, but he found his true nemesis in 1985 with the introduction of Bowser in the first Super Mario Bros. In the decades since, the famous plumber has battled the King of All Koopas so many times, and it’s pretty surprising how little has changed compared to their original battle. We’ve condensed that history lesson into the video below, collecting all the Mario vs. Bowser confrontations from every core entry in the platforming series. Based on how many times he’s fallen down, you’ve got to admire Bowser’s ability to get back up and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom all over again...

    My favorite Bowser falling has to be the one from 3D Land, but my favorite Bowser roar has to be the sound he makes in Mario Kart 64 and the roar his does for his taunt in Smash Bros.

    I can understand that this was only the main line of games, but he's had to beat bowser in the mario rp/paper mario games, a few sports games, not to mention all of the mario parties and spin-offs (even DDR lol)
