Legendary video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed in the latest edition of Game Informer magazine that those loveable Koopalings aren’t actually related to Bowser at all. Miyamoto confirmed that Bowser’s only child is Bowser Jr, but he confessed he has absolutely no idea who the mother is.
“Our current story is that the seven Koopalings are not Bowser’s children. Bower’s only child is Bowser Jr. and we don’t know who the the mother is.”
Also we all know Peach is the mother ;3 hehehehe.
Bowser needs to go on Maury Povich to find out who the baby momma is lol.
I’ll give my number 1-800-CHOKE -THAT-HOE!
I think you may be right about that. Something’s fishy in here.
Well she gets kidnapped all to often ;3 hehehehe. CONSPIRACY!
weird punk bitch in your sick motherfuker dreams
Childhood raping son of a– Oh wait, Miyamoto said it.
Praise be to him, he is our Lord, saviour. Leave luck to Miyamoto.
I see what you did there. And I like it.
God is our Lord not anyone else
God can go fuck himself.
How can god fuck himself if he’s not real?
God is real and He controls everythng that he is doing, including Nintendo.
Hey god is real tob who do you think created you Smartedone
Arceus is my lord when playing handheld games.
Hylia is my lord when playing console games.
Ghirahim is my lord when I’m rolling on the floor laughing like a maniac.
What the heck
Hey god is real tob who do you think created you ,monkeys?!
WOW O.O I’m shocked
This is a fucking LIE ! ! ! And to prove it, I went and took a look at my Super Mario Bros. 3 manual for the NES and look at what I found:
Well that’s all the proof i need. Niceeee
Adopted children, mayhap? Or rather, just children that Koopa picked up and started considering his own when he saw their deviousness?
That would allow for both to be true.
They ARE his kids, just not BIOLOGICALLY.
Morton Koopa Jr is Bowser’s kid? What happened to Morton Koopa Sr?
theres nothing Fucking there
O please we all now what peach does with Bowser when she is kidnapped.
Mario family tree, make it happen!
Why the hell would he reveal this like 20 years after their debute? This ruins everything. And now people are just going to wonder who the Koopalings are.
isnt that the point?
Not even Nintendo know?
it only leave one thing left
MUSHROOM KINGDOM HISTORIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AWWWWW YEAH :D NINTENDO GET THAT SHIT MADE
HELLZ TO THE YES!
One disapproves of your methods, Bowser…but then again, one cannot say there is a lack of admiration for your blatant disregard of the natural order of things!
Hark, One says we get Jerry Springer in here and work this out, once and for all!
JERRY! JERRY! JERRY! JERRY! JERRY! JERRY! JERRY!
i stopped caring when i saw your pony picture
One stopped caring when you pressed reply and had nothing of note or intelligence to add, so we’re even! :3
Thankyou indeed. :3
When the biggest insult they have is ‘You like pony’, one has to smile…because if that’s the avenue they desire to pursue, then they have already lost….considering this account is openly ‘Pony’, there is little doubt to what kind of responses to expect, and thus already know how to counter them.
If thou must comment to be contrary against me…the pony argument isn’t going to work, because your jimmies are clearly more easily rustled than ones own.
Speak of something original and relevent, or move along and don’t open thy mouth to bother me with your trite disdain – one is not here to care what thout thinks, one is here to discuss the games.
Or do you not think you are ‘Hardcore’ enough to tackle the topic in a mature fashion with one such as myself? Bear in mind that what I enjoy in one medium does not affect what I know and how hard I play in another…be fooled not by the pony display.
If a topic is worth debating, then prove it with thy thoughts and logic, not foolish retorts of no substance!
Nice try Bowser, but the DNA test says otherwise. Now if you only used a condom instead…
So they are random koopas that ,for some reason, want peach like bowser.Hmmmm…
From this picture of them it looks like Bowser had a thing for Looney Toons Tasmanian Devil.
WHAT!!! But in mario cannon in past games, they are known as Bowser’s kids!!!
No. They are the Koopa Kids. Don’t say that they aren’t his children. My life is a lie!!!
They’re never called that in the game, though. In Super Mario 3, the servant calls them “Little Koopa”, which could really mean anything. They’re clearly not standard Koopa Troopas, so they’re definitely an elite force, but I think they’re more like a gang of little punks that Bowser took a liking to.
Besides, one of them is called “Morton Koopa Jr.” and Bowser is clearly not Morton Koopa Sr.!
In the SM3 manual they are clearly named as Bowsers kids
Yep, in the American translation. NOA also messed with A Link to the Past’s manual, and the manuals of many other games. Why? Probably no reason. I’m sure they didn’t think so many adults would be butthurt over ever intricate detail 20 years after the fact.
Peach is the mother!
*sigh* – _ – way to be like every sick bastard on the internet
Heck, maybe Mitt Romney gets elected in the Mushroom Kingdom.
This isn’t some impossible scenario… it’s not like each Koopa Troopa is his offspring. The Koopa Kids or Koopalings or whatever gang name they wanna go under is just another way for the thugs to affiliate themselves with the big bad Koopa King Bowser.
man thats BS!!!!!! In Super Mario Brothers Three the Koopalings were introduced to the Gaming World as KOOPAS KIDS……..Shove it Miyamoto you Bastard……..and Bowser Jr Corny to me………Why do Game companies think we are Stupid?…….I don’t know?!?
Well in the games and cartoon they’re referred as Bowser’s/Koopa children… so Miyamoto is chatting rubbish.
the cartoon is not cannon
Maury: “Bowser,…you are not the father.”
So I’m guessing that Bowser adopted the Koopalings then.
Hang on I am sure they called him dad in the Super Mario Bros. 3 Cartoon Show.
Did you honestly believe the show? The one that has consrant pasta jokes
Well yes. Because they’d have to get approval from Nintendo before airing their episodes. Otherwise there would be IP issues?
“Because they’d have to get approval from Nintendo before airing their episodes”
So did they Super Mario Bros movie…
I was wondering if you guys were going to put this up.

Maury Povich: When it comes to the Koopalings… Bowser… you are NOT the father!
So the Koopalings are just like, really jacked up Koopas?
I always thought browser Jr. Was just browser from the past and brought to the present. Hmm. Guess bowstring one night felt like having the company of female koopas. Perhaps the koopalings are his nephews neices
You’re mixing up Baby Bowser and Bowser Jr.
Baby Bowser = Bowser as a baby, Bowser Jr. = Bowser’s son.
it’s a secret to everybody
Wow, this is the most entertaining conversation ever
Wow, this is the most entertaining conversation ever!
Ever since Mario And Luigi: Partners In Time I’ve thought that Bowser Jr was just Baby Bowser.
Also if they aren’t his sons/daughters he could still be their uncle or something.
It said not related at all.
-__- mind blown
What i didn’t know this!
Please let them be related to the Hammer Bros. at least Ludwig the badass.
Hi Faith,I’m glad you stopped by and paid me a visit at A Humble Creation so I could come say hi! I also enjoy cross sttich although I don’t do as much as I used to because I like projects I can finish faster :)I look forward to seeing more of your work and following along in your sewing process!
I understand how all the kids in here are defending Miyamoto, but those of us that actually grew up with these games, as any of us, always knew them as King Koopa’s children. That’s right, we also grew up with Bowser as KING KOOPA. And these are the Koopa Kids or Koopalings. Miyamoto is speaking BS right now and there better be a reason for it.
For fuck’s sake, this is like arguing about the nuances in the A Link to the Past’s manual. Show me a shot of anywhere in the games where the Koopa Kids explicitly call Bowser dad. Fact is, NOA either sucked terribly at translating Japanese, or – more likely – they adapted the books for American audiences. The only “canon” for the Mario series are the Japanese games’ text dumps.
And really, does it matter? No. Not one bit. This doesn’t make the game less enjoyable; this doesn’t undermine your childhood.
Looks like he didn’t like the popular ”Peach is a whore” speculation.
This was unexpected, but I don’t care, actually. A bit confusing, though.

It’s a bit too late to Retcon something like this.
Agreed, why would Bowser put a bunch of random kids in charge of his army otherwise? Nope sorry, everyone all over the world knows the koopalings as his kids, been established like that for years. Its how it will remain too :P

Was I the only one that was a little freaked out by the female koopa kid in the pic up there?XD
It’s interesting to think about, but really… none of this matters. Sure, NOA translated it, but they were probably going to screw-up somewhere, or try to adapt it for American audiences or what have you. But really, the constant uproar about this is just SO dumb.
You also have to remember: the Koopalings DID NOT HAVE NAMES until NOA got their hands on them.
Reblogged this on Gigable – Tech Blog.
OK this is news to me…Hmm I was curious about Bowser Jr and why I haven’t seen him with the koopalings before…Hmm then…if the koopalings aren’t Bowser’s kids then who’s are they..O.O
If there is Morton koopa JR then there is Morton koopa SR
I’m not getting all bent out of shape about it. For the most part, the Mario storylines are loosely tied together at best. If Miyamoto wants to pull a retcon like this, as much as I dislike it, that’s up to him. WE all know what was said first, and we can choose to subscribe to that instead if we wish. It looks like what used to be “true” canon is now headcanon, but look how many of us prefer the old ideas over the new!
Miyamoto can do whatever he likes with his toy. Those of us who prefer to think of the Koopalings as being Bowser’s children can put our thoughts into fanfics. The imagination can do what it likes, regardless of official canon! :)

The koopalings aren’t related to Bowser, but to the koopas, hence the name KOOPAlings and also Bowser Jr. is just a baby clone of Bowser. Your welcome for legit info
