Stage mode viability[ ]

Dr. Dry Bowser's skill is a slower, stronger variant of Dr. Bowser's skill: he can eliminate two random rows of viruses, though that he can clear viruses that require multiple matches, such as being encased in ice or covered by a bubble. As his special skill targets objects, it can be used to clear tough to reach rows. One must be wary, however, that Dr. Dry Bowser's special skill targets objects, so it can eliminate potentially helpful leftover pills rather than viruses and that his special skill is very slow to charge, making uses of it quite limited.

Versus viability[ ]

Dr. Dry Bowser is a dangerous doctor who has seen much use in VS mode, as he is the second fastest doctor who delivers 4 rows to his opponents, after Dr. Baby Daisy. What sets Dr. Dry Bowser apart, however, are his defenses, in which Dr. Baby Daisy completely lacks, giving him the potential to have some lucky deflections in case an opponent attempts to attack him. If Dr. Dry Bowser is at level 3, he can clear 3 rows randomly via targeting rows, making him especially good at clearing the stage and gaining an advantage over his opponent. A disadvantage Dr. Dry Bowser has is his low special skill speed, despite being very powerful, and that despite being the second fastest 4-row attacker, he is still quite slow and his defenses are still on the lower end, potentially causing him to be prone to attacks.

Counters[ ]

Dr. Peach strongly resists 4 row users and can attack back with her higher speed, making her a troublesome match-up for Dry Bowser, especially if Dry Bowser does not run Penguin.

Dr. Baby Daisy outspeeds Dr. Dry Bowser and takes advantage of his lowest defense percentages. However, if Dr. Dry Bowser resists her and makes good use of his special ability, Dr. Dry Bowser can just as quickly overwhelm her with his attacks.
