#Bowsette heralds the fan art apocalypse

What do you get when you mix up Mario's arch enemy with a princess?

Is your Twitter feed is filling up with unexpected web comics portraying Bowser from Nintendo's Super Mario games as a princess? Are you at a loss as to why? Let us explain.

How fan art can get you paid

Sometimes the internet can delight us, sometimes it can terrify us, and on occasion it can do both at the same time. This trend definitely ticks the third box. Recently, Nintendo revealed that in the upcoming version of New Super Mario Bros. U for the Nintendo Switch, Toadette would have a special super crown that would transform her into Peachette, a Princess Peach lookalike.

Fair enough. But of course this is the internet, and it didn't take long for people to ask, well, would the super crown work on other characters?

Like, would it work on Bowser?

And so the latest runaway meme storm kicked off. Over the past few days, it seems that everyone has been imagining and drawing their own versions of Bowsette, an unexpectedly sexy princess version of Mario's chelonian arch-enemy. Some might say it's getting out of hand (you can always browse the Twitter hashtag for the full spectrum of artwork on offer).

Ignoring the overly pneumatic and lewd examples, though, there's been a lot of cracking fan art on show.

Hm? What’s a bandwagon? I don’t know what you’re talking about 😊😊#bowsette 24, 2018

Been seeing a lot of Bowsette fan art, here's my take on her =) #bowsette #クッパ姫 #mario #nintendo 24, 2018

Mind you, it's not all over-the-top cleavage shots. Well, okay, it mostly is, but there have been some other fun takes on the concept.

I mean, someone had to do it!#Bowsette #クッパ姫 #pixelart 24, 2018

I swear I don’t know how some of y’all got so basic#bowsette #bowserette #bowserpeach 24, 2018

Everyone's timelines today.#Bowsette 24, 2018

Of course, why should Bowsette get all the fun? It was only a matter of time until eager artists started wondering what would happen if other Nintendo characters tried on the mushroom crown.
