Dry Bowser is a bony, skinless version of Bowser, debuting in New Super Mario Bros.. Dry Bowser was accidentally created in New Super Mario Bros. first castle, after a short battle with Bowser, Bowser falls into the pit of lava below, burning off his skin and leaving nothing but bone. Dry Bowser also appeared in Mario Kart Wii as a playable racer.
New Super Mario Bros.
In New Super Mario Bros., to defeat the skeletal monster, Mario must dodge Bowser's attacks, which include breathing small flames and throwing his own bones, and wait for Bowser to make a high jump. Mario must then run under Bowser and hit the Skull Switch, destroying the bridge and throwing Bowser into a very deep pit. His fight is similar to Bowser's fight in World 1, except that he lacks the moving platform, much due to that he is the eighth boss. The battle is also similar to the battles against Bowser in worlds 5-8 of Super Mario Bros.; however, in that game he threw hammers instead of bones.
At the final battle of the game, the remains of Dry Bowser were thrown in a cauldron (the contents of which were unknown, but most certainly magical) which turns Dry Bowser back into his original form, except much larger, as if he had used a Mega Mushroom.
Mario Kart Wii

He can be unlocked by beating all new cups on 150cc with at least 1 star ranking or play 4,350 races.
