Bowyer is a boss in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and part of the Smithy Gang. He is fought early on in the game in the Forest Maze and specializes in arrows. In fact, he can use his entire body as a bow to launch colossal arrows towards his enemies, which during the time of the game include Mario, Mallow and Geno. Directly before the player fights Bowyer Geno will join the party.
In the game, Smithy commanded Bowyer to take over Rose Town for their army. To do this, he started launching arrows from deep within the Forest Maze, each one freezing its target in place. A possessed Geno doll went to stop him, and Mario eventually followed through the forest until they came across Bowyer. In the game, Bowyer was in possession of the second star piece.
