Clearly most of the Koopalings seem to be in their teens. So they
were probably born long before the first SMB game
Where are the Koopalings in Super Mario 64. Are they at home watching
I believe there are 3 theories to the origon of the Koopa Kids:
1. Bowser had a girlfriend, and they got to know each other
2. Bowser had a wife, and after giving him 7 little monsters
to worry about, he ordered Kamek to change her into a, uh, goomba! Yeah...
3. Bowser, like Godzilla, is asexual, which means you can
reproduce without, uh, "mating." Which means, HE ISN'T REALLY A GUY!
As for their disapperance, in SMW each of the Koopaling's defeated message
hinted at the fact that they were dead.
I know exactly where we came from. Before the games, there was a Mrs.
Koopa. After the eggs hatched and the youngest Koopa (Bowser Morton Koopa
Jr.) was one year old she was in a battle against the Mushrooms. She and
Wendy were battling the Mushrooms when the battle led to Barrel Volcano.
Everyone in the battle fell in, except Wendy who mysteriously escaped.
- Prince Lemmy Koopa
I think the Koopalings originated from my "sister" Peach. When Bowser
kidnapped her the second time, he secretly raped her! Now that is MY thought
per se. And where did the Koopalings go during Supa' Mario 64?
They were sent to a Juvinile detention center because they burned down
Kins Dad's castle with a couple Tiki Torches and Russian Vodka! THAT is
where they wil stay. That concludes my Koopa observation.
- Princess Aeris Toadstool
My opinion is that there at least was, at one point a Mrs. Koopa. However,
Bowser and her probably had disagreements on how to raise the kids, and
Bowser got rid of her, one way or another
- Steven Reich
Maybe before Mario came to Mushroom Kingdom, Bowser kidnapped Peach
and "abused" her. Hey, why do you think he kept going after Peach
anyway. Probably because he trying to get the old relation going.
- Will Catherus
I think the Koopalings are actually grown up Koopa Troopas. Or maybe
they are Team Rocket's Squirtles.
- Thomas Holmes
i think that bowser never considered the koopa kids a serious fighting
force until the time of SMB3. but when he tried them against the mario
bros. in SMB3, SMW, and YS, he saw that they were worthless and so he stopped
using them against the bros.
I think that in the early games, the Koopalings were too young, or honing
their skills. Then they fight Mario in SMB3 and...well get beat! And Bowser
was too busy too revive them, so they are
dead, or their dad thinks after their failure, they aren't good enough
to fight yet, so he's saving them for later,in another game perhaps?
I think the koopalings originated before SMB.They did not make thair
appearance in SMB as they were still learning evil tactics from their father
Bowzer and they were also seeing Mario's tactics.They did not appear in
Mario64 as they were totally scared of Mario and were out of ideas in order
to finish Mario!!!
I think that they spawned from a chemical experiment gone wrong. It
was Bowser's expirement, trying to create the perfect creature, with Bowser's
strength and evilness, combined with Mario's speed and intelligence. They
had combined genetics, causing their recombinant DNA to age quickly. That
is why they were older in the first game, and then, in Mario 64, they were
too old and
weak to battle.
- Nate Livingston
I think Super Mario 64, took place before Super Mario World, and the
reason Bowser decided not to use them against Mario is because he thought
they weren´t ready to fight. (Or maybe
that, since Mario decided not to bring Luigi to his adventure, Bowser
decided he could fight alone.) The only thing I can't figure out is why
Yoshi, being Mario's friend, didn't help him until it was too late...
- Ryouji Kadji
Well, I think this is a matter of usefulness!!
Yes, they could born a before first SMB chapter, but they were useless
when Mario and Luigi arrove at Mushroomland! Why? Everybody knows that
in th first SMB the Koopa troop personifies Bowser in every castle, Mario
only realizes that till he kill 'em and finally at the castle number eight
Mario reaches the real one!!!
SMB3 is made for them, maybe Bowser thought that Mario was hard guy
and a real problem for the Koopa Troop, so his blood could make a better
work kicking Mario's ass. Obviously he got wrong, but at least made things
difficultier, same way in SMW, but for example, what need to use his fucking
and bothering children in SM64? Is a single castle! a really big one, but
still one!!! SMKarts? There are enough bothering racers and still more!?!.
I saw once a cartoon made by Nintendo (yes, no fanfic, it was Nintendo
production) I didn't dream it!!!, it was Bowser with his female bizarre
thing, as uglier as him, as stupid as him, and as bad as him!!! Well, TV
give us the answer, she is the mother of the Koopalings. The mystery now
is what happened with her?
- Ivan Gonzalez
I think after their defeat in Super Mario World, they decided to go
back to "bad school" and learn more tricks so they can come back and do
some damage when they get older. When other Mario games are made, they
will then come out of hiding and show us what they have learned.
- Corey Pinkston
I stated this theory once before, but I'll state it again right now.
I believe that between Super Mario Bros. and SMB3, Bowser and an anonamous
female Koopa (another mystery, the mother of the Koopalings) did a mating
dance and had 6 children Larry, Wendy, Iggy, Roy, Lemmy, and Ludwig.
As for Morton Jr. (notice the name, a junior when his believed father is
named Bowser), I
think that he is the son of Bowser's brother, Morton Sr., who Bowser
killed off before the first attack on the Mushroom Kingdom. He saw
great potentional in Morton Jr. and took him in as a son. For the
ages, I have one word for ya KAMEK!
- Chris Waters
This is a VERY controversal subject! I always like to take a different
variable on this mystery than most other people.
Now, answering your questions:
Who are they?
I think the Koopalings are actually King Koopa's kids. GASP!
Yes, I think that Bowser and King Koopa are two different people (I mean,
why would Morton be Morton Koopa JR.???)
Where did they come from?
For all we know, King Koopa probably had a wife at some point.
During the NES decade, Nintendo didn't shed much light on the lives of
Why aren't they in Super Mario 64?
Maybe since Bowser's not their dad, they really didn't want to help.
But, who knows? Maybe we'll see them again someday! Let's hope
- Elana Kritikos
Simple. While mario was taking on wart, wario, and tatanga, bowser was
busy looking for a life. he found a female koopa, very rare, and had dinner
well, you know the rest...
anyway, after that moment, she laid eggs.
if she hadnt fallen into that goomba pen, she'd still be here today...
- Avery H.
I think that Bowser was married at some time, but, after the last Koopaling
was born, he killed her, as he wanted no more children.
I think what happened was long before Mario and Luigi got caught up
with Koopa, Koopa had some kind of life and got married to a Princess of
the same species as him.
They had many kids and the kids lived with their mother in another land
until King Koopa won custody of them in SMB3. King Koopa is most likely
divorced so maybe Nintendo didn't want to open up that can of worms
in a kids show.
Well.. you know how Bowser is always kidnapping Peach? Maybe one time
they got a little bored while waiting for Mario and decided to have some..
er.. 'fun'. <Gasp!> They're Bowser and Peach's illegitimate children!
Notice how Wendy's outfit is similar in color and style to Peach's. Coincidence?
I think not. =P
Obviously the koopalings came from bowser's fort and were born there
since that is where Bowser hangs out.
- Andrew Ruchames
I think Koopa probably just made them with some kind of magic. that's
what I always thought back when I was a Mario fan.
- Soneec the Hedgehog
My theory is that Bowser once had a wife, but she died long before Mario
entered the mushroom kingdom. They had 7 babies. The kooplings wern't in
SM64 beacause they were watching Nickelodeon or something. I think they
are in thier teens or 20's. (Maybe not all of them were Bowser's offspring,
like maybe one or two of them were his Nephew/niese or younger cousion.)
- Nev Zehr
Ah... the eternal question. Where did the Koopa kids come from? Or was
the eternal question something else? Perhaps it was how many lumps do you
want. If you said none, then you're smart. But I'm rambling.
Okay, I have some theories. Do you care to hear them? Well, I don't
think you have much of a choice, so here goes.
First of all, I believe that Ludwig is adopted. You heard me, adopted.
It is clear that he is quite different from the rest of them, y'know, that
weird cheap Austrian accent. Or was it some other accent? Does it matter?
I suppose not.
Also, bear in mind that I think that Bowser was married twice. And I
have an order of Koopa kids that I have. It might not be the "right" order,
First, Bowser adopts Ludwig. Then he gets married. Does the unlucky
lass have a name? Probably. Let's call her Lolita. Anyway, they have a
roll in the hay. Along comes Morton. Lolita settles down, but Bowser...
anyway, he cheats on her, and that explains Roy, the bastard son of Bowser
and... um, I need a name... Martha Ann Bellfrank! Whew! Needless to say,
Lolita is upset by this and files for a divorce. And thus they part ways.
However, Martha Ann doesn't want to take care of a child, so poor Bowser
is now stuck with both Morton and Roy.
Then, one night in a steamy nightclub on the dark side of town, he meets
another lady of his life: Ophelia! (Aw yeah! I'm doin' great!) Unlike the
previous two females, though, Ophelia stays around for a while, giving
Bowser Iggy, Lemmy, Wendy, and Larry. Later on, she realizes what a pathetic
idgit Bowser is(though funny). She gets into 2 am scream-fests with him,
and she leaves.
Thus, Bowser is stuck with seven children.
Their ages don't really matter, but I said what I think the order is.
As for their absence in SM64, well... the real reason probably was because
Nintendo didn't feel like programming them in, but we can say for story's
sake that Bowser didn't want them screwing his plans up again.
I like the Koopa kids...
Man! I'm good at this! =D
- Colonel Zippo Kanaza
I think that Bowser had a wife and had kids... the Koopalings! then
the Princesses father killed Bowsers wife. So now Bowser is trying
to avenge her death by kidnapping the Princess and killing her.
- Cassidy Volk
Of course they are Bowser's "King Koopa" kids. Him and his wife had
After his humiliating defeat in SMB (The Lost Levels), Bowser took a
vacation. While there, he met a female Koopa named Salina. They fell in
love and got married. Then they had the Koopa Kids. (I think you know what
went on in between). Anyway, after having Larry and Ludwig, they hatched
Roy and Morton a couple years later. Wendy was hatched the next year, then
the twins were hatched three years later. Bowser waited until Larry reached
the age of 19 before allowing any of them to make any serious mischief.
They took over the Mushroom Worlds, but were stomped out by the Mario Bros.
In SMW, they each took one of Yoshi's friends, but were again defeated.
They were beaten again in Yoshi's Safari, but who knows what they were
doing to be defeated. Right now, they are gearing up for another appearance
in a game, so look out. You never know wat will happen... When Koopalings
- John R. Jones II
You familiar with Greek Mythology? Well, Athena just popped out
of Zeus' head one day. So, I guess it's possible that all 7 of these
guys jumped out of Bowser's.
- John Moore
You know. This is the most outragess one here. S.K.
One thing that strikes me is, they don't even look like siblings...shell
and skin (scale?) tones turn
out different colors, body shapes are radically different, even the
teeth are all unique. I guess the simplilist explination would be, considering
thier physical dissimilarity, and since there is no mention of them earlier
or apparent mother, they must have been adopted or created artificialy.
They also all seem to be on drugs... I mean look at thier expressions!
Look at the hair on Iggy and Lemmy! So, maybe Bowser picked thesse little
adicts of the street. "Hey kiddies, come work for me, I'll get you a fix!".
Perhaps that's why they all dissapeared...they all o.d'd. Poor koopalings!
You see long ago, the Mushroom Kingdom was peacful. Or so Princess Toadstool
thought, then out of the sky comes bowser, in his Doom Ship. He swooped
down and kidnapped the Princess, then that little Fungus Toad went into
the real world to get some very courageous adventures, that was the Mario
Bros. Well anyway, back at Bowser Koopa's castle, the princess was enjoying
Chardonnay while getting a nice back rub by some Goomba's. "Maybe Koopa
isnt that bad after all, actually he's kinda cute." thought the Princess,
Well yeah i know what your thinking, but remember, shes drunker than Boris
Yeltson, you know that dumb ass who can't walk or stand. Anyway Toadstool
had...IMPURE THOUGHTS... about Koopa and she started to undress, getting
horny Koopa laid down and slipped out of his scales. Then they made love
for 5 hours straight.Well naturally she had kids, those brat the Kooplings.
But lets not forget Toad, he went around looking for the Mario Bros. when
the princess returned...
The Return of the Princess
Angry and furious, Toadstool kicked a pipe, ouch. Then she spoke to
Toad, "Damn it, that asshole Koopa, i got pregnant with Septuplets
and he asks me to have an Abortion! The nerve! Well if it an abortion he
wants, he'll get, i'm aborting my relationship with that..thing!", Screamed
the Princess. You see Koopa didnt want to have to take care of the kids,
but he was wrong, Princess returned with a Court Order, stating that Bowser
Koopa, the father of the Septuplets, is heby serviced with Child support
and daily care. But as punishment, Koopa killed the lawyer and never told
his kids that the Princess was their mother. Then Toad interupted her thoughts
as he was accompanied by two fat stupid plumbers.
- Sean Herrington
Bowser told Magikoopa to age the kids with his magic so they weren't
born before SMB.
- Matthew Williams
It's obious that while Bowser , had Big Bertha open a whore house and
Bowser had some fun there!!!!!The whore house was later shut down by the
Mushroom Kingdom Police who ate Big Bertha for dinner!!!!!!!
Most people who try to explain the Mario games' background and how they
are tied togheter often forget that the Koopa Kids were NOT born between
SMB and SMB3. In the SMB3 instruction manual, the story was that "Bowser
has returned, and this time with his children", or something similar -
those probably weren't the exact words. Everything about them was said
in a way which left the impression that they already existed during the
previous adventures, but simply weren't with Bowser on his first conquest.
As for their actual origin, I've never considered that as a very mysterious
thing. After all, we're never learned anything about Bowser's personal
life, and we didn't know about his Koopa Kids until the third game. It
is a likely possibility that he has, or had, a wife in the Koopa Kingdom.
- Panu Vihavainen
I think During the time Bowser temporarily gave world Domination He
got married and had the Koopalings But He Divorced his Wife and Had Kamek
age the Koopalings a little bit so They can help him Take over the world.
- Roger North
The answer lies in the name of the second youngest Koopaling. Is he
Bowser Koopa, Jr.? No... he's MORTON Koopa, Jr. Which means his father
was named Morton as well... so he must have been adopted.What about the
rest? Well, if Bowser had some ladyfriend who was fertile enough
to give him six other children, why would he bother adopting just one?
He wouldn't... hence, the rest are adopted as well. Even despotic turtle
kings don't live forever, and Bowser wanted someone to carry on in his
absence... and evidently, he was taking NO chances. As for their current
whereabouts... remember how Bowser "kidnapped the princess while you were
running around"? Whaddya want to bet that after Mario and Peach finished
that cake she made, they received a note that said, "Yo! We all took over
Mushroom World while you were messing around at home! Dad knew that if
he was keeping you busy, we'd have the freedom to do whatever we pleased!
Ha ha! Oh, and we kidnapped Luigi, too! And Mallow, just for the heck of
- Playground Psychotic
The Koopalings are not real Bowser's kids. They were really adopted
by Bowser and now are looking for their real parent's, that why they were
not in SM64.
Well, let's see here. Bowser had a wife. Her name was Peach
Toadstool. They lived happily together long before the Mario Bros.
showed up. Peach and Bowser had seven kids, all who turned out to
be Koopas instead of humans. Peach became very frustrated, and she
and Bowser had a HUGE fight. Well, to make a long story short, they
divorced. Yet Bowser still loved her, so he tried everything he could
to get her back, including kidnapping.
That's where the Koopa Kids came from. Now, as for their two (three
if you want to count Mario is Missing). The Koopa Kids, like it stated
in one of the cases, may have been teenagers. Well, they were.
They were all strong enough to fight with their dad, so whenever Bowser
kidnapped his ex-wife, his kids would keep her from the Mario Brothers.
Well, they grew up to be young adults, and they had big dreams of becoming
very smart and making big bucks and the like. Thus, all seven Koopa
Kids went to college and became more intelligent than their father, and
they are CEOs of their own companies even as we speak.
Too wierd?? Maybe it is, but maybe it isn't.
- Chris Williams
I think Bowser married someone then she left him with the kids.
- Orlando Vega
I think that Bowser had a wife 10 years before Super Mario for NES.
Before Mario for NES came out, the wife bitched and nagged about Bowser
fighting. He slit the bitches throat and thats that.
Sorry about that graphic description. S.K.
I THINK THE KOOPALINGS ARE HOLOGRAMS MADED BY BOWSER IN THE EARLIER
VERSIONS OF MARIO
Um... Uh... Maybe there was a Queen Koopa before Mario came
to the mushroom kingdom. They made lots of babies, but now they're divorced
because Bowser was cheating on her with other princesses (Possibly Peach??).
Or maybe "Mrs. Bowser Koopa" got a heart attack eating from too much McDonald's.
That could explain why Bowser is too busy kidnapping Princess Peach.
HAS IT EVER OCCURED TO ANYONE THAT MAYBE THE KOOPALINGS WERE KILLED IN
- Adam Reitemeier
I think that that Koopalings originated in a swamp somewhere in the
African jungle. King Koopa might not be the father of these kids.
He could've stole the eggs and then raised them as his own. We will
never known, until the person who thought about having them in a cartoon
tells us themselves.
- Jennifer Scrimenti
Obviously these Koopa-lings are not in fact sons and daughters of Bowser.
They are his Brothers.
Bowser is the son of an older gentleman we have not met yet. The Koopalings
are mutant Koopas, like Bowser. They have been in training for years, so
they did not appear until SMB 3. Whoever is in charge of Bowser decided
not to send these minions into SM 64 because they needed more training.
In fact, they might just all be clones. Think about it, who could survive
so many deaths? The only game In which Bowser didn't die is SM 64.
SM 3: He fell to his death.
SMW: Struck by lightning.
SM 1: There were 8 of him? All fell to their deaths in lava?
The only real bowsers have been in SM 64 and YI where they survived.
All the others have been clones that just weren't quite as good.
- Wario the III
Actually in SMW Bowser's Koopa-Kopter spun out of control so he
didn't die(There is also no proof that he dies in the other games).
Perhaps, Bowser was disappointed that the Koopalings did such a poor
job of fighting Mario in SMB3, he sent them to their rooms from the time
between SMB3 and SMW. After that, he decided to give them a second chance
But they failed then too. So Bowser either ate them up
for dinner, or they died after falling into the lava, or they burst after
Mario defeated them in SMW. Or perhaps Bowser just sent them to their rooms
again like before, which would open up a possibility of the Koopalings
appearing in another Mario game on the N64 or beyond... I guess we'll just
have to wait and see.
On another note, (perhaps the next - and most difficult
yet - Mario Unsolved Mystery), how did Bowser get the kids in the first
place? WHERE IS MRS. KOOPA? Are these kids adopted? Is Bowser a hermaphrodite(see
episode 202 of South Park)? Are they test tube babies? Maybe one day we'll
find out, but in the mean time, keep watching the skies. The Truth Is Out
Didn't this guy know that the mystery was about where the
koopalings came from? Sheesh. S.K.
I think that The Koopaling was died from SuperMarioBros 3 because Super
Mario kills them=) but Bowser Revives them with some Fenix Down [=)]and
they come to life to SuperMarioWorld and SMario kill them again and
Destroy their castles with them inside!! Logically in Super Mario 64 they
are in "Suspended Animation" in any place of the Bowser's castle,
and they won't be
resuscitated for their previous failures. Maybe in another Super mario
GAME they can be Useful
Good BYE ^_^ :^) ¬¬¡
- Sergio Fernando Cebrián
Okay, so maybe they were too young to help him overthrough the mushroom
kingdom in the original game, and that's why they weren't around until
part 3... why weren't they in SM64? Easy. While Mario was trying
to get his piece of "cake" from the princess, Luigi (also absent from SM64)
was saving the rest of the mushroom kingdom from the koopalings... tada!
I think Bowser got married, had koopalings, and their mom died!
- Jacob Andrews
My thoughts are:
I think how the Koopalings were born is that Bowser met some
female Koopa that was just like him. Bowser had made the girl Koopa,(let's
just call her Bewser), believe that he had love at first sight. But acculaly,
he just wanted some henchkoopas so he wodn't have to dress goompas,koopa
troopas,etc. as himself or use Wart to do his dirtywork. So, Bewser and
Bowser got merried. After Bewser had 7 koopalings,he lead his spose into
her demise. Why? He's Bowser, he's gotta be mean. The koopalings were at
Bowser's castle during SM64 beacause of their failiature,they were grounded
intill they could prove that they could suceed.
- Brett Warcken
They are the children of Bowser and a unknown koopa
I think Bowser got married to a female koopa and the female had kids.
- Dylan Polk
First off, we must realise the theory of alternate universes presented
by some scientists too explain the theoretical consiquences of reverse-time
travel and faster than light motion, which deal with changing events as
they are now. Basically, any event that changes the past, creates a NEW
present that exists independantly from the one we live in now, an "alternate
universe" if you will. (source, some late night thinking over tha Back
To the Future series).
Bowser, in his mid fourties, was going through a mid life-crisis.
He realised that in the busy rush to build an army and take over mushroom
kingdom, he forgot to stop and smell the roses. He wished he'd become
a family dragon. So he had one of the hammer brothers read some H.G.
Wells and bang together a time machine.
Back in time, he was confused by the popularity of games such as Pong
and Pac-Man and Space Invaders. In a state of confusion, he fell
deeply in love with a somewhat hefty girl named Wart. They were quickly
Try as they might, they could not conceive children. So the tearful
Wart went in for fertility treatment. Nine months, and a lot of mass
media hype later, the Koopalings, or Koopa Kids, were born. The first
set of reptilian-amphibian septuplets. The Scientific community was
Bowser became a house husband a-la John Lennon, and Mrs.Wart Koopa took
over the megalomania biz. Throwing our heros into a parallel dimention,
the dimention of sub-con, in which the Mario squad took on Wart instead
of Bowser, and Warts gang of meanies instead of the goombas and koopas.
Other things were different in the dimention of sub-con as well; Rev. Jessie
Jackson won the '84 presidential race.
Here's where it gets weird. After his mom was defeated by the
mario team (Toad ultimately did her in) Ludvig Van Koopa, in his angry
adolescense hit the drugs and hit them hard. He composed some bad 60's
style acid songs that were largely responsible for the truly bizarre lands
of Yoshi's Island, but more importanly they merged the seperated dimentions.
In this hybrid dimention, aspects of the two dimentions were combined.
Mario remained the same as allways. The Princessand Toad became the
passive people they were in the first dimention (from here on out the dimention
of SMB is #1, the dimention of SMB2 is #2 and the dimention of SMB3 is
#3 -- Nintendo new of this dimentional shifting and hence the numbering
of the games, Super Mario world is still in #3, hence no new number.
Yoshi's island is also in #3. The bizarre twists and turns that lead
from the jump from dimention #3 to dimention #64 are beyond the scope of
this message). Luigi and the Koopa Kids were both present, but the
trip had worn them down and neither would remain around for long.
Wart was still depressed by her defeat, she now stays in a mental clinic,
where Bowser visits her every Sunday. Bowser was ready to avenge
his wife. Some of Warts friends were also in the angry spirit, showing
up again to take out Mario et al.
There you have it. The current locations of Luigi and the Koopa
Kids is unknown. Luigi is rumored to have appeared in several racing
games and even a fighting game, but we here at the colmore.com mario research
institute think thats just a bunch of BS, if you want to know our scientific
opinion on things, which you clearly do, having read this drivel.
Congradulations, you wasted 10 minutes of your life.
Whew. This wins longest submission hands down. S.K.
