Bowsette: When a Nintendo Direct blows up the internet for the wrong reasons


The internet is an unpredictable place, that for no one is a mystery, but surely not a single person within Nintendo was expected the strange outcome of events that would trigger his last Nintendo Direct, which is supposed to have shone with the presentation of the new Nintendo Switch Online service.

Although indeed the Nintendo Direct of two weeks ago was one of the best we have seen this year, with presenting a lot of new games for the console, and the announcement of Nintendo’s new online payment service, the truth is that a few seconds of the trailer for the port of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe for the Switch was enough to drive fans crazy and for the least expected reasons.

Bowsette the female version of Bowser that Nintendo did not imagine

It turns out that, in this port of the popular Mario game for Wii U, new characters and powers were added, and among them the addition of a new mushroom with a crown, which during the trailer in second 24, we can see that it temporarily transforms Toadette (the female version of Toad) into Peach or rather Peachette? A very strange power that has made fans’ imaginations fly.

Well it seems this alone was enough to make one artist wonder what if Bowser took this crowned mushroom? After all, almost all the characters of the mushroom kingdom have their female version, so it would be more than natural that someone finally thought of creating Bowsette or Koopa-Hime, with a small vignette that was posted on Twitter in which Bowser turns into a bad girl by eating the mushroom with a crown, and naturally blew up the internet.


this vignette was the start of all the madness

Perhaps inadvertently, Ayyk92 The artist who recreated the first female version of Bowser, later baptized by almost everyone as Bowsette, did not imagine the repercussions of his little creation, but the fictional character has managed to win the hearts of fans, and now there are thousands and thousands of images and adaptations that circulate on the internet. Even, and as expected, some of them quite risque.

In its short existence Bowsette or Koopa-Hime has become so famous that the requests of fans of add her as a canon character within the franchise, something that personally I am very glad that Nintendo gets to do it, but that in the end has not stopped creatives from imagining all kinds of situations in which Bowsette could expand the adventures of Mario, here is a small collection of images of This curious fanfiction character, would you like Nintendo to add him officially?
