Manga Creators Enthralled By 'Bowsette' Meme
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The concept of "Bowsette" has taken the internet by storm this week. Twitter user @ayyk92 first created a short comic strip based on the newly introduced "Super Crown" concept from the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Nintendo Switch game. The idea was simple: what if the Super Crown that turns Toadette in Peachette was used by Bowser? Thus, Bowsette was born (and eventually other Mario enemy-turned-princess variations) and artists can't help but embrace her.
Here's some highlights across the manga creator Twitterverse. Some of the fan art may be NOT SAFE for work, so scroll at your own risk!

The contender for the most "Bowsette" fan art would have to go to Coolkyoushinja, the creator of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying, and Komori-san Can't Decline. The artist has drawn nine different images of Bowsette, although one is omitted here for being explicit.
After Bowser's transformation, she finds herself inexplicitly attracted to Mario.

The artist of the Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid manga spin-off Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Kanna's Daily Life, Mitsuhiro Kimur, also drew art of Bowsette.

Bowsette has garnered appeal for a multitude of reasons: a fangy grin, the concept of a corrupt Peach variant, and the gender-bend switch. Do you think Nintendo will officially acknowledge the fan creation?
