Ever since last weekend, Twitter has gone bonkers over video gaming’s greatest female genderbend yet, “Bowsette.” If you missed out on all the fun, let’s just say a couple hundred artists have been throwing Nintendo’s new “Super Crown” onto Bowser and turning him into a Princess Peach-inspired princess that’s as cute as she is somehow horny. Remember, this is Twitter we’re talking about, and the entire site is endlessly thirsty like that.

Now Bowsette has given birth to a new meme, and it’s all thanks to artist Revolocities, who decided to place the feminizing “Super Crown” onto Waluigi. Go ahead and take a look at the internet’s new crush, Waluigette. It’s like Peach and Waluigi merged into one with a little bit of Wendy’s thrown into the mix.


She’s gorgeous, maybe to a copyright-infringing fault.

Suffice to say, Twitter immediately fell in love with Waluigette, and Revolocities’ original design alone has since scored over 5,000 retweets and just over 20,000 likes.



Everyone has their own take on Waluigette too, just like Bowsette. Twitter (and by extension, your timeline) is already flooded with the new girl.




Waluigi isn’t the only Super Mario favorite receiving the Super Crown’s feminizing treatment. For one, there’s “Booette.” Throw a Super Crown onto him, and well, let’s just say Bowsette and Waluigette have some competition.




Then there’s “Chompette,” Twitter’s new genderbent Chain Chomp. Thanks to the Super Crown, she’s gone from a bulky bone-crunching menace into a high fashion icon.




Oh, and there’s “Birdette” too, which is a name that was already used to describe everyone’s favorite transgender Super Mario character, Birdo. Ahhh, the possibilities are endless.



In fact, Bowsette’s genderbending madness isn’t just confined to Super Mario anymore. It seems Nintendo’s feminizing Super Crown is invading other video game worlds. Take Sonic the Hedgehog. Someone made the terrible mistake of placing the crown on the blue blur’s head, and now the Sonic fandom has some complicated feelings to work out.


Sonic’s buddy Tails is joining in on the fun too. Twitter, meet Tailette.


Kirby also has his own Bowsette makeover with Kirbette.

In fact, the Bowsettes are starting to interact with each other. Worlds are colliding, folks.

2018 is truly a magical year for being thirsty on main. What a time to be alive.
