Bowser Jr. is son of the King Koopa himself. I am unsure if this means biological son or otherwise, but the resemblance is uncanny. Bowser also seems to be protective and emotional when dealing with Jr. as seen in the DS games, so that leads me to believe the connection is deep.

How much do we know about Jr.'s background? Does he have a mother? Is he really Bowser's son? Did he ever go by Prince Koopa? These, I must know.

Bowser Jr


Who better to ask than Super Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto?

Q. Do you know who Bowser Jr's mother is?

A. Points to himself

Well, that can't be a canon answer...

In 2012 (by way of declaring that the Koopalings had been retconned into not being Bowser's kids), Miyamoto explained: Bowser's only child is Bowser Jr., and we do not know who the mother is. No further details have been revealed since.

    HI, not everyone can view video links (plus they have a tendency of going dead). It's always better to include a transcript. – Valorum Nov 16 '17 at 6:45
