Kamek is a powerful Magikoopa and Bowser's adviser in The Movie. He later returns in Season Five as Bowser's henchman outside of the Legion of Villains.



Kamek has been Bowser's henchman since he was an infant, first being his caretaker and babysitter.

Many years later, Bowser was informed by Kamek that two brothers would continue Merlin and Nox Decious' bloodline, which he thought had been exterminated. Decious then spoke with Bowser, telling him he would handle the situation, though the Koopa demanded that he would have Kamek destroy the plane that they were on.

After the infants were teleported off the plane to Yoshi's Island by Merlin, Kamek succeeded in taking Luigi. However, Mario ended up in the care of Yoshi, who helped him save Luigi from Kamek, despite his desperate attempts at stopping them. ("The Super Mario Brothers")

After Yoshi defeated baby Bowser at their castle, Kamek took him away and helped raise him until he became the king. He assisted Bowser in his plans from his childhood through his adulthood.

The MovieEdit


Kamek, as he appears in the film

At the entrance to Bowser's hideout, Kamek reveals to his boss that he has perfected a spell to make Koopas appear human. Kamek then casts the spell on Bowser and it works. However, the only downside is that Bowser can't speak English, still speaking in various grunts and growls. However, Kamek had planned ahead in case of such a scenario and bought Hooked on Phonics to teach him. ("Act I Part 1")

Kamek tries to teach King Bowser the English language, using the Hooked on Phonics book, but he doesn't make much progress. After testing him and Bowser failing, Kamek says it is going to take longer than expected to teach him English, but that he is ready to move onto Sesame Street.

Bowser asks Kamek what went wrong during his first fight with Mario and Luigi, Kamek suggesting that Bowser should fight more and talk less. Bowser agrees with him and asks for his teddy bear because he is feeling very tired. Kamek hands the Koopa king his teddy bear and they both laugh evilly. ("Act I Part 2")

At the battlefield, King Bowser and Kamek meet Mario and Luigi so that he can defeat them for good. When Mario tells them they are late, Bowser curses his watch and demands that Kamek buy him another, though he states that he spent all their money on the watch, Hooked on Phonics, and Bowser's clothes for his human form. As the villains are about to battle Mario and Luigi, the lawnmower appears and scares the Mario Brothers away. Enraged, King Bowser screams out in a massive growl, having lost the ability to speak English and forcing Kamek to re-teach him. ("Act I Part 4")

Later, Bowser and Kamek battle Mario and Luigi at the battlefield. When Bowser surrenders, he and Kamek (who was battling Luigi) retreat so they can prepare for the next battle.

On the way back to his hideout, Kamek apparently eats some prunes, which makes him have diarrhea. After Bowser has a conversation with the Darkness, he tells Kamek to meet him at the portal. ("Act II Part 1")

Eventually, Kamek is ready to leave the Real World, so he goes to meet Bowser at the portal. However, Bowser notices that Teddy is missing. Kamek reveals he accidentally incinerated Teddy because it was in the the building Bowser had told him to incinerate earlier. When Bowser asked Kamek why he told him to do that, Kamek says that he just does anything Bowser tells him to do. He then informs Kamek he will be punished until he buys him a new bear. Then they use the warp pipe to leave the Real World. ("Act II Part 2")

Season FiveEdit

Season 5 Kamek

Kamek, as he appears in Season Five

Kamek appears in a flashback of King Bowser's to have used his magic to make Bowser's human form taller. When Bowser asks him if he got him a new teddy bear, Kamek replies in the negative. Bowser, in response, sends Kamek off to get him a new bear. ("Dark Dookie")

Later, King Bowser meets with Kamek at his old hideout. Kamek was unable to find Bowser a new bear, but the Koopa king disregards this. He instructs Kamek to wait by the portal until Bowser returns after they have won the war, now treating Kamek more violently than before. ("A "Brief" Meeting")



Bowser and Kamek going home

After Bowser is defeated by Luigi, he and Kamek return to the Mushroom Kingdom as Luigi demanded. ("The Super Mario Brothers")


Kamek is always loyal to Bowser and follows his every command.

He also has a comedic nature, which often irritates Bowser.

Abilities / SkillsEdit


Using his Magikoopa Magic, Kamek can cast a variety of spells; however, the only spell he is ever seen using is one that can give Koopas the appearance of humans.


Kamek's weapon that he is mainly seen with is his metal broomstick although he has never used it in battle.

Slap CombatEdit

Kamek lacks power when it comes to physical combat so he fights with what he calls "Slap Combat" which is basically him blindly wailing his arms when battling much like UPS and FedEx.


  • Kamek is the only character in the series to have a gradual costume change. In "Act I," he originally has a only a black cloak, blue sunglasses, black outfit with a spike bracelet, and boots. However, by the time of their battle with Mario and Luigi, he has gotten black sunglasses and lost the bracelet. By "Act II," Kamek has purchased a pair of black gloves from Macy's.
