List of all Bowser’s Special Attacks

|Damages all enemies and an additional 90% chance to inflict fear. Spin the left analogue stick to fill the wheel to increase the damage (does not increase chance of poison).

|Damages all enemies and the damage increases the quicker you press “A” to fill the wheel.
Terrorize and Poison Gas
Terrorize and Poison Gas work very similarly in the fact that they damage all enemies and also have a 90% chance to inflict a status. Terrorize will inflict fear, which means that an enemy inflicted with fear will have their attack and defense halved! Enemies inflicted with poison will take extra damage every turn for a few turns. You can increase the damage inflicted by both attacks by spinning the left analogue stick quickly to fill the wheel in time.
These special attacks have some situational use, but for the most part, they’re not that useful. The good thing is that they target all enemies!
The Crusher attack can only target one enemy but it deals a substantial amount of damage. To increase the damage of the attack, press “A” right as the huge rock bursts from the ground. As always, you can use the “!” exclamation mark above head to judge the timing.
Mechakoopa Stomp is a fun special attack that summons a huge Mechakoopa toy that’ll stampede across all enemies! To do the maximum amount of damage, repeatedly hit “A” to fill the wheel as quickly as you can.
