** Using the non-indicative "ette" naming scheme, Peachette's name looks like a potential transformation for Peach herself. Unfortunately, it lead to some mean-spirited jokes where Peachette is accused of having no identity beyond being a Peach clone.

* DependingOnTheArtist: Booette is usually a WomanInWhite, but the "Peachyboo" variant (which is actually a common Boo instead of King Boo) wears black to contrast her UndeathlyPallor. There's also the question of whether Booette has [[ShowSomeLeg legs]], FogFeet, or both.

* NonIndicativeName: A common complaint is that "Bowsette" is actually a misnomer, since Peachette's name results from Toad'''ette''' being transformed into Peach. Following this naming scheme, something like "Peachser" or "Peachowser" would be a more accurate name for Bowser transformed into Peach, while "Bowsette" would instead refer to Toadette transformed into Bowser. Nevertheless, the name "Bowsette" rolls off the tongue better, so it stuck. This also resulted in the equally-troublesome "[Character]ette" naming convention for other Super Crown wearers (but some of them do have more appropriate alternative names).

...But ''then'' the idea of Bowser using the Super Crown inspired UsefulNotes/{{Malaysia}}n Website/{{Twitter}} user [=Ayyk92=] to [[http://twitter.com/ayyk92/status/1042465252221181954 draw a comic]] depicting Bowser using the Super Crown. Whereupon he is turned into a Peachette-esque woman (using elements from Bowser's design instead of Toadette's), and then hooking up with Mario following ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'''s ending. This comic then promptly ''exploded'', with the internet quickly dubbing the character "Bowsette". FanArt of Bowsette based on her design in the comic (as well as edits of it which retain Bowser's red hair, and alternately also [[DarkSkinnedRedHead tan skin]] to represent Bowser's yellow-brown) flooded the internet afterwards, to the point of her becoming an EnsembleDarkhorse in the fandom mere days after her inception. Meanwhile, Japanese fans dubbed her "Kuppa-hime" ("Princess Koopa") after Bowser's Japanese name, which became a top-trending Twitter and Website/{{Pixiv}} tag in short order.[[note]]To put into perspective how popular Bowsette became little more than a week since she was introduced, the amount of Bowser fan-art on Pixiv at that time numbered to around 3000, while the amount of Peach fan-art numbered around 5000. Bowsette, on the other hand, numbered at a whopping 7000 fan-art pieces. To clarify, this means Bowsette got ''more'' fan-art on Pixiv in less than a month since her creation than either Bowser or Peach had gotten up to that point since the website Pixiv was ''founded''. Also of note is, in that same short timeframe, several professional {{manga}} artists joined in and drew their own art of her, including those of ''Manga/DagashiKashi'', ''Manga/TheElderSisterLikeOne'', ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' (whose mangaka drew no less than ''nine'' different Bowsette pictures), ''Manga/{{Tsugumomo}}'', ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'', ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' and the manga version of ''LightNovel/GoblinSlayer'', as well as the character designer for ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''.[[/note]]
