|“||Soon this kingdom will vanish along with all who dwell within. And you, too, will sleep eternally in the dark power's embrace!||„|
|~ Dark Bowser|
Dark Bowser is Bowser's final boss in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. He has all the powers Bowser has, along with many dark variations as well. He was created from Bowser's DNA copied by the Dark Star, a sentient and malevolent star of incredible dark power that viciously attacked the Mushroom Kingdom several years ago and was sealed away by the Star Sprites. It seeks to cover the world in darkness and destroy it.
