Tragically, the one man we truly needed to do Bowsette art, Kenya Suzuki of Galko-chan fame, has thus far not done any.

There have been breakout characters and breakout fan characters before, but it seems like the amount of art this has generated is just like, three days, may very well be unprecedented - and friends of mine who have done their own art have seen something like 10 to 20 times their normal activity in a single day. Just seems like the right combination of things everybody likes, one way or another.

This is even spreading onto other Mario characters like Chain Chomp, Bullet Bill, King Boo, Blooper, and even some of the Mario RPG character. Bowsette is by far the most popular though

Rei Hiroe (BLACK LAGOON, Re:Creators) also did a quick sketch of her.

In 2017 there was Earth-Chan. Now in 2018, it’s Bowsette. Congratulations internet, now everyone wants to bed Bowser.

It’s almost impressive how much of a meme and content was spawned by just one comic. Like the amount of work I’ve seen of Bowsette in just 2-3 days is so crazy, it’s like every single one of my favorite artists is jumping on board the hype train.

Why did this just now become so popular? I mean, I've seen people draw this for years.

Looks like this is another meme waifu of the month. Same thing with the English teacher Ellen Baker.



Sorry if the images are too big. The Super Crown itself has become a meme and its variations are just hilarious.

More than 200 Bowsette/King Boo art in my following Pixiv artist list in barely 10 hours, that's some incredible popularity, well it's most likely gonna last until next week with the next season starting.

I think it being based on an actual new item in a game, and the story of another game, helped make it more intriguing - rather then just being a random gender bend, it's like, "Hey, isn't that what WOULD happen?"

Bowsette for smash anyone? As an echo fighter of Bowser. Just make her faster and lighter.

Bowsette is just more proof that we're living in the best timeline.
