The internet is still recovering after the fan-created Princess Bowser/Bowsette went viral, with fans going completely over the top with fan art, memes and PewDiePie videos.
A Twitter user by the name of Haniwa posted an adorable – albeit a little creepy – comic strip which shows Nintendo’s favourite villain gender-swapping himself into Princess Bowser.

The comic quickly went viral, and we’ve been treated to the trending topic that is #PrincessBowser.
Now it seems things have developed even further, as fans are petitioning to make Bowsette a canon Nintendo character in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Taking to Change.org, a user by the name of Gabriel Rodriguez writes: “Bowsette, as the internet has named her, is a character merge inspired by the idea of Bowser using the Super Crown to transform into a Peach version…
“The internet has fallen in love with this unlikely combination, and seemingly overnight, artists have created thousands upon thousands of fanart pieces dedicated to the turtle princess. As I write this, #Bowsette is trending on Twitter with over 150,000 mentions (and that’s not including the Japanese hashtag).
“When you explore #Bowsette, you will see alot [sic] of variations of her, main story wise we are thinking of a way to bring her in but we hope Nintendo gives even a glimpse at this character, personally I would love to see her in super smash brothers ultimate even if it is only a thropy [sic] that way Nintendo may accept her existence slowly but surely.”
