King Kappa breaks the Internet today.
Or should we say Bowsette, the Queen Kappa?
We want Bowsette! Nintendo, please?
What started out as a simple Mario comic fanart suddenly exploded into the hottest Internet meme today. GameGeek lists down the top Bowsette fan art that we’ve found on Twitter.
Here is kendy (@revolocities) with a drawing of not only the female Bowser but with Prince Peacher, the male version of Princess Peach.
Just like how bowsette is loud and tomboyish, peacher is very effeminate and gentle. Uses a parasol.”
Mexican voice actor Pelo (@_SrPelo_) created a short video involving Bowser Jr., Wario, and Toad. Watch ‘Bowser beats mario’ here:

Korean artist WOOT SANG (@KAHVOM) created a comic which shows Bowsette and Mario’s potential as a couple together.

Could this be a new ship sailing? Do you, dear reader, want this to be Canon? Nintendo, please?
A couple of artists claimed to be “jumping on the bandwagon” as they drew their own renditions of the female Bowser. We have Zumi (@ZumiDraws), LiliRulu (@lilirulu), Montie (@carlo_montie), RoMaNa (@FoxRomana_0), and Fream (@justfream).
And of course, this trend would not be complete without a Bongo Cat meme version. Go give this a listen from Krisoyo (@Krisoyo)!
