Koopa Kingdom is Bowser's domain as well as the home of the Koopalings, homeland of the Koopa species, rival kingdom of Mushroom Kingdom, and is the final world in Mario's adventures.

The geography is extremely volcanic, some areas being wastelands, volcanos, lava rivers, and largely untouched by sunlight. This country was defended by the military forces of Koopa Troop with large numbers of tanks and airships patrol these lands to be defeated by Mario and Luigi. Shown in the Yoshi series, Bowser is ruler of the Koopa Kingdom since childhood and is located to Dinosaur Land.


The Koopa Kingdom is an absolute monarchy, where King Bowser has unchecked power, and his position is passed on to his child. Bowser has acted as the head of the government since he was a child, while his title as "King" raises arguments of what his presence in the government is. Kamek remains as his trusted adviser for many years, giving advice to Bowser and his children. Bowser Jr. takes over as the heir to the throne.


  • Volcanoes: It is the most recorded landscape of this kingdom by having a huge amount of lava in every corner.
  • Wastelands: Dry lands is complete full with bones from various species who did not survive by the ashes.
  • Dark Clouds: The atmosphere is completely bleak for thunderstorms that blocks sunlight.
  • Forests: Seldom has leafy forests.
  • Glaciers: In this kingdom there was ice until it was melted by the volcanic heat. But there is ice in the underground parts.
  • Castle Ruins: Bowser and his underlings have castles and strongholds destroyed by plunders or by eruptions. Then the ruins of these castles are found for all kingdom.
