Bowser’s Fury acts as the entry for the Super Mario 3D World franchise into the Switch Platform. And Nintendo hasn’t held back with the massive update in the form of Bowser’s Fury. The new Fury part of the game has an open-world gameplay experience where players can roam around.

However, the fight is actually divided as you don’t actually defeat Bowser in the first three attempts. This Boss Guide for Bowser gives you all the information you need to complete Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.
Bowser Boss Guide
Bowser is the main villain in the game and with the help of Bowser Jr., you can defeat him. You encounter him a total of 4 times. Out of these, the fourth encounter is the final one where you actually defeat him. However, for that, you need to have collected all 100 Cat Shines around the Islands.
During this encounter, Bowser will perform his shell crush attack by jumping in the air. You need to beware and dodge the aftershocks of this attack. Also if you go further from him he will try to hurt you with flames. These are easily avoidable. To defeat him you just have to ground pound him thrice.
In this attack, Bowser uses a shell spin attack. This attack also leaves behind a trail of tar which will make you move slowly. Overall it is pretty similar to the first fight and you have to go about the same procedure to defeat him.
In this attack, Bowser gains another new ability. This ability is seen in the form of massive pillars he launches. All you have to do is look at their shadows and avoid them. You can also pick up these pillars and throw them at him.
This battle in itself is divided into three parts. The first phase of this fight is similar to the first three encounters. In the second phase, Bowser gains some new techniques. With these, he is able to shoot rocks which you can either avoid or deflect back on him. Now in the third phase, you have to chase Bowser. You have to attack him with Giga Bells and dodge his attacks.
