Mario & Mallow are not needed at all past the first two turns. If you are keen enough to see which target Bowyer will hit with his arrow, feel free to not block and let them die.

In case your battle gets really screwed up, it's important to know that Bowyer's button locks are based on the choices you make in battle.
A counter is kept for the duration of 2 turns, at the end of which he will lock a button.
