I never imagined having solidarity with King Koopa. I can so relate.
But who’s the mother, really?
I imagine the original Kooplings are orphans Bowser has adopted, probably children of some of the Koopas Mario has killed over the years.
Bowser Jr. being the only one who takes after Bowser and even carries his name is probably a clone created by magic to provide a legitimate heir to the throne.
I am going to add tis to my headcanon, because he Koopalings beings villains Mario himself has created is just too great.
My personal canon is the Wave Motion Cannon of personal canons.
Bowser Junior is the son of Princess Peach!!! Or, at the least, that’s what a lot of crazy people on the internet think.
It’s true! I dun seen it with mine own peepers!
They probably didn’t play through all of Super Mario Sunshine then.
The mother died in child birth giving birth to Bowser Jr.? Or threw herself into some lava after spending some time with all the kids…
Lol @ Larry
I figured that Bowser Jr. is really Baby Bowser (that is, Bowser himself as a child).
So, yes, Kamek sent the young Bowser into the future to be raised by himself, because… stuff.
