So I play against a mario regularly and I find that its so hard to land on battlefield (or dreamland). I do so well on all other stages but I feel that battlefield is bowsers worst stage. Is there any positives of playing bowser on a tri platform stage?

The main advantage of bowser on a tri platform stage is that if you get a klaw, you can often take your opponent to the top platform for an earlier kill.

The secondary benefits are that you should be able to get landing traps on mario, almost as much as he can get them on you. When people land on platforms you should be able to easily nair and occasionally Bowser bomb them. Force them to feel uncomfortable with landing on a platform.

Fun fact: you can bomb to ledge from the side platforms on battlefield.

Also, you can go underneath Battlefield from the right side only.

There are also probably battlefield ledge shenanigans that every character gets.

Also, the stage is set high enough that most characters can't recover if they jump out of a Bowserside, making that a viable option.

I think Bowser mostly just wants to control the center on this stage. Also, you can throw someone onto a platform and try to tech chase them on it which Bowser is good at. The stage is actually quite small which is good against zoners.

While I don't play Bowser my friend does and we play Battlefield often. Browser's nair has decent range and can rack up damage. Or you could bait out the Mario near the side if the stage then side B off it.
