Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

He is outraged when he discovers he only got one baby, so he dispatches his Toadies so they could find Baby Mario and bring him to the castle. He appears before every boss battle to taunt Yoshi or to warn him to give the baby back. On the last level, he attacks Yoshi several times on his broom and casts spells to turn bricks into minions. After Baby Bowser is defeated, he wings at Yoshi before flying away into the night.
Yoshi's Island DS
In Yoshi's Island DS, he kidnaps various babies all around the Mushroom Kingdom.
Even though he is one of the main antagonists, he is never fought; he instead enlarges other bosses to fight for him. He is afraid of what the Mario Bros will do to the Koopa Kingdom when they grow up, so he tries to kidnap them. He is also afraid of Baby Bowser, next to Yoshi, as Yoshi is an older an capable hero compared to the Mario Bros at this point and currently the greatest threat to Kamek's power.
