Dry Bowser is the airship boss of Pumpkin Boneyard in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. He's a dried up version of Bowser that fell in some lava in Leafpile Castle.

Dry Bowser is only fought in Derelict Schooner.


His battle is similar to the first Bowser battle, with a few differences. He throws bones at you like a hammer bro, and shoots more harder fire balls. He is also immune to damage from fireballs. His only weakness is thus getting to the button and pressing it to send him falling to his doom. A cutscene plays showing his head flying from the chasm below and then falling back down.


  • Dry Bowser is the second end-world boss to not drop a Boss Key upon defeat, the first being Bowser in Leafpile Castle.
