Testing the complexity of Fury Bowser's behavior

What makes him furious?

How the heck does Fury Bowser work in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury?! The amount of time it takes him to appear, and then leave, always seems to change! Well we ran a ton of tests to try and breakdown how exactly he works--and you might just be surprised!

I am guessing there is one more rule for Fury Bowser in the postgame: If all of your remaining Cat Shines are to retrieve the calico kittens, then the orange sky variant (where Fury Bowser remains until you collec a Cat Shine) cannot occur, as those are the Cat Shines that can only be obtained when Fury Bowser is slumbering.

Alternatively, you can collect a Giga Cat Bell and fight Bowser, then fight Bowser again on Plessie, but this would be stupidly time consuming and annoying.

Oh yes, and one more rule: When you begin the campaign itself, Fury Bowser's countdown will not start until you meet Bowser Jr. in the area between Fur Step Island and Scamper Shores.

Good to know I wasn't just being unlucky in seeing Fury Bowser almost immediately show up after one of the battles though, and that it actually happens every time...
