"Bowser's Theme", also known as "Koopa's Theme", is the track that plays in Super Mario 64 during the battles against Bowser in the first two "Bowser" levels, Bowser in the Dark World and Bowser in the Fire Sea (in the third level, Bowser in the Sky, "Ultimate Koopa" plays instead). It incorporates the melody of the "Koopa's Message" jingle that plays during Bowser's messages in Peach's Castle.
The song has since appeared in other games in the Mario franchise, being rearranged as the theme for the Bowser Board in Mario Party 10, and having its melody used in the theme for Bowser's Castle in Mario Tennis Open and the song "Break Free (Lead the Way)" in Super Mario Odyssey.
