Someone asked me like 5 months ago how would my version of human koopalings look like, I sketched this and forgot it. Of course I remembered it now when I don’t have time. I would write headcanons and stuff but I have to do my school application work :/
Here are the Koopa Kids, or Koopalings, who first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 by Nintendo, which came out in February of 1990.
I loved these characters to bits as a kid, and drew them all the time. They’re all burned into my brain now as a result. I vividly remember seeing my friend Oliver fight Larry Koopa for the first time and I remember being delighted that the Koopa Kid was playing a saxophone. I later learned it was supposed to be a magic wand. Kids today won’t experience confusion of that sort, and frankly they’re worse off for it.
