On his own far-away world across the rift divide, Bowser was the undisputed, tyrannical king of the Koopas. When evil Kaos created the Sky Eater and Skylands was plunged into impending doom, Mags sent out a distress call that crossed the breach between worlds where the Sky Eater had torn it apart. Bowser jumped through the rift to investigate the call. Suddenly faced with pirates on the boundary of Skylands, Bowser fought to save his own life and that of his mortal enemy Donkey Kong, and the two finally stood victorious together. SuperCharged with Rift Engines that they discovered nearby, and given a new fighting jet, the Clown Cruiser, to aid him, Hammer Slam Bowser agreed to keep fighting against The Darkness to prevent it from reaching his own world as well. Until Kaos is defeated and the war is won, enemies become friends. After that... who knows?
