If you’ve been out of the loop the past few days, you may not have noticed the massive influx of art depicting a female Bowser, dubbed “Bowsette” or “Bowserette” by fans. The concept originated in this twitter post by user ayyk92, showing Bowser taking advantage of the Super Crown from New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. The internet took the image and ran with it.
Most surprising, though, the design has found significant appeal with numerous mangaka, including Kotoyama (Dagashi Kashi), Coolkyoushinja (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) and even KuroseP (Goblin Slayer). Needless to say, the phenomenon is much bigger and much more than ayyk92 bargained for.
Below, you can check out the various mangaka and artists who’ve contributed to the fad.
