Being a science nerd, I actually went and worked out the colouration genotypes of the Koopalings and their parents ages ago...
Made me think of your article about Koopa-evelution in The 'Shroom.

tl;dr version: RL genetics can be used to explain how the Koopalings could all look so different from each other and from Bowser and Junior, yet still be one big happy family.

And then I went through specific genotypes that can explain the hair, eye, head and shell colouration.


Being a science nerd, I actually went and worked out the colouration genotypes of the Koopalings and their parents ages ago...
Made me think of your article about Koopa-evelution in The 'Shroom.
It is pretty similar in spirit... If they ask me to do another article, maybe it should be on Koopa pedigree analysis, lol

It's still to be determined. Without information, generally from lookings they might be simply important minions around Bowser, or at least orphans that was raised and trained by Bowser's troop.

Actually, it has been determined that originally they were his kids, then Nintendo didn't really talk about it anymore, and now their current story is that they're unrelated.

This was just a thought exercise.

no one knows who the koopalins mom is, and no one knows who mario and luigis mom is. that means the koopalins and mario and luigi are all related!!

That means Wario and Baby Luigi are related for having two eyes, two legs, and a nose

But your logic is horribly flawed. Just saying.

Real world genetics can still explain the Koopalings (and Junior)

i know. i just don't think nintendo cares about realistic depictions of heredity

*bleep* what Miyamoto says. To me, the Koopalings will always be Bowser's children.

That's why it's horrible we fans have to imagine what the characters are by ourselves.

Nintendo actually intends for that to happen in some cases. Hence why Mario is usually a bland and boring character.

Yeah, don't trust the Western localisations because the developers had nothing to do with that.

They could still be Bowser Jr's cousins though, and then we'd know that Bowser had a brother called Morton if that held true. In any case, related or not, they're still the same characters they always were.
No there not you can't establish some them as being Bowser's kids and then just drop that for no reason.

Even if it had been that way (which there's no indication of there being in Japan), you could very easily drop it because it has never affected the games in any way.

I don't want to believe this. I have many good reasons.
*Reason number one: The Koopa Family seems more in1complete without them.
*Reason number two: The Koopalings are more unique than Bowser Jr., NOT that i dislike him or anything. Each Koopaling has its own personality. Bowser Jr. is just a young Bowser who likes painting (Also, note that he bears a huge resemblence to Baby Bowser from the Yoshi series and especially Mario & Luigi:Partners in Time.)
*Reason number three: If you combine the traits of each koopaling, you'll get what Junior's mother looks like.
*Reason four: It just raises more questions. How did they come to be? Do they still call Bowser dad? Are they adopted? Are they Bowser clones?
*Reason five: As a Koopaling fan, I don't want to think of them as adopted/cloned nobodys.
