  • Based on bowser(main) this site is garbage to find counters, DO NOT USE IT. Snake is a HARD counter to bowser but has no votes, jigglypuff and incineroar has a lot of votes but are countered by bowser

  • Never go for regular grabs with Bowser unless your fighting another heavy he has no true combos. If your playing against someone good they'll mash out and if you can grab, you can also side b.
