Kamek is a Magikoopa in Bowser's army. He debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island as Baby Bowser's caretaker and the game's main antagonist: throughout the game, as well as in later Yoshi games, he assists bosses with his magic, usually by making them gigantic.
Kamek later went on to appear in the New Super Mario Bros. series starting with New Super Mario Bros. Wii: once again he appears at the beginning of the boss battles to assist the boss, though unlike the Yoshi series in most cases his magic alters the arena instead of the boss itself.
