Get to know the Koopaling in mine & MidnightCollies
This was a huge collab done between the two of us! I sketched and lined while she colored! We're both happy with the end results of this group pic!
~~~Order Left to Right:Iggy Koopa:
The brains of the bunch, creating many different inventions for his those in the group, Iggy is one that thinks up a plan and wants to stick to it. He isn't one to get down and dirty, but he's happy to loan his inventions to his siblings and the twins. He'll stick in the back of the group sticking to his own plan unless it has to come to his twin brother Lemmy, he's protective of the younger twin, afraid of where his small size will take him. Iggy wields the light yellow wand, this wand allows him to toss out green colored fireballs and gives the brainiac a few moments of super speed.Lemmy Koopa:
The smallest of the 7 Koopaling siblings, he's a ball of energy and is often found balancing on a yellow ball covered in darker yellow stars. He's often confused and has a little trouble seeing, but that doesn't stop him, he enjoys making his siblings and friends laugh and that comes with often making his own jokes. He enjoys having some fun, this small koopa wields the green wand which allows him to shoot larger and bouncy yellow balls to toss at his enemies and throw them off.Gemmie Gina Koopa:
Gemmie is one of the most uncontrollable of the koopalings, while most are eager and quick to follow orders, Gemmie is slow and easily distracted, and of she’s doing something else she focuses on getting that job finished first. She’s ever so slightly feral, doing things such as eating with her hands, misusing the most basically of cutlery and even walking on all fours occasionally. Gemmie is all about having fun, if something bores her, she’s likely to walk away from it or sit and complain until she’s not bored anymore. Gemmie wields a mint green wand which she uses to make illusions and small distance portals, which comes in handy for attacking.Larry Koopa:
Larry is one of the calm of the minions, he enjoys a good laugh and having fun with his fellow koopalings causing trouble to the neighboring Mushroom Kingdom. He'd rather reason with others than try and go in causing havoc first, but that only comes when around other Koopalings, when the Mushroom Kingdom is involved he'll enjoy blowing something up and torturing some Toads along with it. He holds the orange wand which allows him to shoot sky blue colored fireballs, the wand also allows him to jump a lot more higher than any of the other koopalings and he'll use it to ricochet off the walls when he makes contact.Ludwig Von Koopa:
The leader of this fine squadron, he'll take point in the group especially when they are out on the field causing trouble. He butts heads a lot with the young prince often thinking Prince Bowser shouldn't lead the group thinking he's just doing it on his own and just to order them around. He thinks of BJ as a spoiled brat thinking he just wants to get his way and what he wants for sure. He usually doesn't take none of it, most of the koopalings in the squad hate it when Bowser Jr. orders them around. Ludwig holds the blue wand and it allows him to shoot out lightning often leaving a paralyzing effect on his opponents when attacking.Prince Bowser Jr:
The young prince of the Koopa Kingdom himself, there are points in which he enjoys being around the Minions often joining them to cause havoc on the neighboring kingdom. He'll order around the other koopalings, but he does enjoy their company even if he refuses to admit it to them. Bowser Jr. is known for breathing his own fireballs when it comes to facing enemies with the Koopaling Squad. He may be on the short end for being young, but that doesn't stop him, he's known to be really ruthless and causing trouble to those that aren't subjects within his kingdom.Daria Koopa:
This young koopa is the only known winged koopa within this minions and would rather have her hands on some bomb-ombs than a wand. She enjoys watching and causing explosions. She's been known to cause some sort of explosion in the castle at least once a week. Daria is really good at timing and knows when to have the squad out of the way before a bomb-omb explodes, she's a pro. Don't make her mad because she does have a temper on her still having some savagery from her time with Lord Fawful. Royal or not you threaten her or especially her sister your asking for a broken arm or leg, your lucky to just get a punch in the face from her.Wendy O. Koopa:
The only female between the two clutches her parents had, but is one of three girls in the Koopa Squad. Out of the three she is the most feminine, often wearing lipstick and nail polish. She tries hard to get makeup on Daria and Gemmie but often fails. She's still as fearsome as her brothers though and enjoys the havoc when it comes. She's not too much of an action koopa though mostly using her wand to get her out of tough events. Wendy holds the purple wand and it allows her to shoot golden rings towards any opponents and these rings tend to shock whoever they touch.Morton Jr. Koopa:
Morton is more brawn than brains, he'd rather punch first ask questions later. He enjoys fights and violence more than his siblings, so when any of the Koopa Squad starts the fight he'd rather encourage it to continue than put a stop to it. No one knows why he's like this, but he's known to also be the first line in when they decide to storm the Mushroom Castle if anything and he makes quick work of any Toads and guards. Morton wields the red wand and uses it to call on spiked balls in which he'll use to attack.Roy Koopa:
The coolest of the cool within this group, he's one that, as well as Daria, is known for his explosions, but his specialty comes with using Bullet Bills in his own hand carried canon. Sometimes he and the winged Koopa in the group will join in together on causing one major explosion. They get along like two peas in a pod often borrowing explosions from one another. Half the time no one in the castle knows who caused an unknown explosion within the castle walls. Roy doesn't use it too much but he holds the black wand which allows him to cast strong energy blasts towards those he attacks and when making contact they'll leave off an explosion. Roy uses his wand as a last resort since he enjoys using his canon more though.
~~~Headcanons (Reason for changes):
Iggy, Lemmy, Larry, and Ludwig have the same general appearances. Some of them also got some muscle added to them which was Ludwig, Morton, and Roy. These three also got some spikes added to their tails.
Bowser Jr. (BJ) was one of the most major changes. We first of all changed the Prince's age. Instead of being somewhat of a young toddler he's older around the age of the Koopalings. He was also given a couple spikes added to his tail to mimic those of his father's. This help fit the lore of our Koopaverse more and what we came up with for the fanon.
Wendy was another one that got more details added to her, we first of all added some hair on her. Why does the only girl in the Koopaling Squad not have any hair?
So we added some, we also changed her heels to more of a sandal like heel. We also liked the idea that Wendy paints her nails a lovely shade of pink and she keeps them filed down.
Morton and Roy just got some minor changes, they stand up straight a little more than in the canon Marioverse. It was just a lot easier to draw them this way in my opinion. It was my decision to add this to their design. The two also gained some spikes to the ends of their tails.
