Mario franchise strategy guide/Bosses/Mouser

Mouser is a mouse villain featured in the Super Mario games. He is a minion of Wart and was featured as a sub-boss in Super Mario Bros. 2. His strategy is throwing bombs at his opponents. However, he never seems to do anything about the fact that they can throw the bombs back at him.

Mouser in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show

Since Super Mario Bros. 2 started out as Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, Mouser actually made his first appearance there. However, he has not become a major recurring character in the Mario games like Birdo, Shy Guys or Bob-ombs.

Mouser was confronted no more than three times in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic. The heroes of the game fought him in Worlds 1-3, 3-3, and 5-3. In the second confrontation, Mouser's ears were green instead of pink, and the player had to also deal with a fast-moving Spark circling the perimeter of the chamber where they took on Mouser. In the third confrontation, Mouser was albino-colored and had spikes on the floor of his room. And this time, it took six hits to defeat him - the same number of hits as Wart took to defeat.

Perhaps due to his difficulty and for variety purposes, when Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic became Super Mario Bros. 2, the third confrontation with Mouser was replaced with a battle with Clawgrip. When the game was rereleased Super Mario Advance for the Game Boy Advance in 2001, the addition of Robirdo as the boss of World 3 moved the second battle with Mouser to World 6-3, replacing the second battle with Tryclyde.

Mouser throws bombs at all who come near.

Although Mouser was not featured in another Mario game for many years, he has played a big part in the game's marketing. He was a semi-regular on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, which cast him as Bowser's right-hand minion. John Stocker provided the voice for Mouser, who spoke with a German accent in the series.

Mouser also occasionally appeared in the Super Mario Bros. comic books, which provided a backstory for him. According to the story "A Mouser in the Houser", Mouser was the king of a peaceful race of mice (all of whom looked just like him) living in the tunnels of the Mushroom Kingdom. But he was corrupted by Bowser, and as a result, his now-leaderless subjects now steal vegetables for food. Interestingly, Mouser himself was not as much of a major character in the comics as he was in the cartoon.
