Nya ha ha!
~ Bowyer's signature laugh.

Bowyer was a villain from the video game Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars. He is a minion of the Smithy Gang and created by Smithy.


Bowyer shot arrows called Aeros at the inhabitants of Rose Town to try and weaken it enough to conquer for Smithy. He retreated for a short time to restock and prepare for his final attack. but Mario and Mallow made their way through the forest to fight him. Geno, a doll possessed by a star, appeared to fight him for the Stat Piece and Bowyer decided to make him pay for the interruption. Geno was no match for Bowyer and his Flunkies but, just as Geno was about to be defeated, Mario stopped Bowyer. Later, Mario, Mallow, Geno, Bowser, and Princess Peach encountered several mass-produced Bowyer copies in Smithy's factory.

Together, Mario, Mallow, and Geno defeated Bowyer, and he was destroyed. Like most of the other characters, Bowyer appeared in the parade during the credits (though parades during the credits of RPG's are just a way of showing all the characters in it, and should not be considered canon). In the parade, Bowyer, Mack, and Yaridovich were hit by Smithy with a hammer.


Bowyer resembled a giant bow with legs and eyes.


Bowyer was a hyperactive and very upbeat minion with a penchant for destruction and going "nya ha ha!" He does however seem to have problem speaking since a lot of his sentences are Engrish.

Powers and Abilities

  • Button Freezing: Bowyer could freeze certain buttons and render them useless to the player.
    • Move Disabling: Bowyer could, in the process, render the player incapable of either fighting normally, using items, or casting magic.
  • Lightning Blasts: Bowyer could summon blue lightning from the sky to blast his enemies.
  • Arrow Blasts: Bowyer's signature attack where he'd grab his flunkies and string them into his body to shoot them like arrows at his opponents.


997! 998! 999! 1000! Nya ha ha! 1000 arrows! For cover they run, nya! Nya! Another 1000 I will shoot. Happy I am, nya! Look...LOOK at thier expressions when freeze they do!
~ Bowyer's first words in-game when amassing all of his arrows to destroy Rose Town.
What? WHAT? Disturb me you must not! Busy I am! More arrows must I shoot! More statues must I make, nya!
~ Bowyer when a Flunkie brought him the second Star Piece.
Gnya, NYA!? A stranger you are...and strange looking at that! Teach you, we must, who is in charge.
~ Bowyer when confronted by the then unidentified Geno before initiating his boss battle.
Nya! NYA! Angry I am! Nya! A lesson I will teach you!
~ Bowyer when Geno demanded that he hand over the Star Piece at the start of his boss fight.
Gnya! Nya!!! Strong you are. But stronger am I! Hurt you, I will! So long, nya!! Part, now, we must! Nya nya NYA!!
~ Bowyer when Geno got the upper hand.
Knock knock! Nya! Insulted, I am! Nya! Now three against one! Nyat FAIR! Fix it, I will, nya!
~ Bowyer when Mario joined the boss battle.
Shoot an arrow I shall! When a target it hits, that Button... LOCKED!
~ Bowyer before disabling many of Mario's party's abilities and his final words before his death.
