    Bowser Junior (SML, late-2019-present)

    Bowser Junior (SML, late-2019-present)
    Unfortunately when your character relies on striking a fine balance between funny and annoying, it's very easy to overshoot the line and just turn them annoying.

    Bowser Junior (now known as simply Junior since 2021) is one of the main characters from the puppet web series SuperMarioLogan. He is Bowser's son and he was highly known for his role in the Junior era, the era where there are many videos based on him. He is voiced by the series creator Logan Thirtyacre.

    While he had an over-the-top bratty attitude, delusional nature, trouble-making tendencies, and warped understanding of the world are somewhat funny like a less extreme embodiment of Eric Cartman, sadly, since late 2019, he's been flanderized and hasn't recovered since, although depending on your opinion, he and Joseph improved a bit in 2023.

    Why He Needs to Go Back to Military School

    1. In late 2019, or more specifically, "Taken Away!", he was badly flanderized and became overbearingly annoying, unfunny, and much stupider, to the point where he even developed sociopathic tendencies. While he was always supposed to be somewhat of a jerk, he still had a nicer side and was meant to be more rebellious than outright sociopathic.
    2. He has also been noted for acting extremely cruel to Chef Pee Pee and Cody for little to no reason whatsoever; especially Cody to the point that almost any interaction with Cody often ends with either Junior insulting him, mocking him/a family member, or sometimes abusing him verbally/physically.
    3. He's started to become aggravatingly petty in most episodes; for example, in "The School Project!", when Cody asks Junior if he can play with the helicopter, Junior said "no", but for seemingly no reason other than the fact that the writers wanted it to happen, he gave Cody a chance to play with the helicopter. Then after it breaks, he gets so angry he refuses to talk to Cody, even when the latter tries to tell him it was an accident, and goes as far as to destroy their shared school project to get revenge.
    4. Also as implied above, his stupidity has been exaggerated to the point where he often cannot even remember basic facts or even apply a bit of common sense to situations, but whereas his pre-2019 self was able to handle ignorant comedy a lot better, his stupidity now more often seems to be forced into videos for the sake of plot convenience and tends to be more annoying than funny; notably in "Taken Away!", his flanderization episode where he continually predicts the safe combination is things like "1111", "2222" and so forth and gets the safe locked because of it.
    5. A lot of his common recurring jokes have become stale and painful to watch from overuse; a prime example is him making fun of Cody's mom's weight. While the joke has existed in the series for a while, it's started to become beaten into the ground from 2019 onwards; it gets to the point where sometimes 30 seconds or more of a video are dedicated solely to Cody's mom jokes.
    6. He has done many horrible things, all in the name of "comedy":
      • In "Cody Goes to College!", when he learns that Cody isn't going to hang out with him and Joseph anymore because he's going to college, they get him kicked out of college so they can continue to have a punching bag.
      • In "Bowser Junior's Prank Gone Wrong!" he alongside Joseph, blew an air horn in Chef Pee Pee's ears and made him deaf, and Junior uses that problem to insult Chef Pee Pee, going as far as to say the page quote.
      • He was at his absolute worst in "Bowser Junior's Revenge!", as he cyberstalks, sends threatening messages to, and even tries to burn Cody's house down. The reason he does this is simply that Cody accidentally knocked over his piggy bank, which Junior nonsensically accuses him of doing on purpose.
      • In "Junior Goes to Legoland!", Junior doesn't care about Joseph and Cody's injuries as he yells at Joseph to stop giving him the silent treatment and to delete the picture. He goes further by throwing him off his wheelchair. When Cody asks Junior to get him something (as he can't move), Junior gets annoyed and calls Cody "princess".
      • In "Cody's Cavity!", he and Joseph keep hurting Cody to get his rotten tooth out and they claim themselves to be good friends, even though they're far from good friends.
      • In "Junior's Karma!", he made several worst mistakes possible such as insulting a disabled boy in a wheelchair and making himself a pathetic punching bag so that he annoyingly got himself killed in the end though it foreshadowed Junior getting what he deserved.
      • He, along with Joseph, were also at their absolute worst in "Cody's Bad Word!" where they falsely accuse Cody of being racist, even though Cody said "Inward".
      • In "Spin the Bottle!", he proposes playing Spin the Bottle so he can try and get Penelope to kiss him. When Cody ends up being forced to kiss Penelope, Junior gets mad and records Cody kissing Penelope so he can show it to Ken out of spite, even though Cody didn't even want to kiss Penelope and had no choice and Junior stupidly blames this on Cody anyway. Junior also stupidly suggests that Cody got Penelope pregnant by kissing her. When Cody pays Junior a hundred dollars not to show Ken, Junior takes the money, shows Ken anyway, and doesn't even give Cody back his money.
      • In "The Cheerleading Competition!" he decides to try to get Penelope and Heidi disqualified by planning to give them steroids and he even injured Heidi with that needle. He planned to put Miralax in their drink, he planned to have them say the N-word which Penelope tricked him into saying, then he dressed up as Penelope so she would get grounded by Brooklyn Guy by making out with Cody. He even stole the trophy from the girls after he and Cody got disqualified.
      • In "Jeffy's Laser Pointer!", Junior tells Jeffy to shine a laser into Cody's eyes, thinking it would give him 20/22 vision and slaps him to see if Cody can see. He even tells Jeffy to shine a laser at the plane Brooklyn Guy was flying, which resulted in Brooklyn Guy crashing the plane destroyed the donor organs he was brought to a hospital.
      • In "The Spring Break Disaster!" he along with Joseph, Cody and Jeffy go to the beach during a storm and he and Joseph force Cody to catch the football which made him drown. He and Jeffy also didn't stop Joseph from trying to sue Cody over his ball at the very absurd end.
      • In "Breaking Bad", when Jeffy was selling blue rock candy he and Joseph blame Cody and think it was his who got Cody arrested.
      • In "The Ancient Egg", when Jeffy steals Brooklyn Guy's excavator, Brooklyn Guy asks him, Joseph, and Cody where his excavator is and he and Joseph lie by telling him he doesn't know where it is.
      • He and Joseph were much worse in "No Invite" in which they antagonize Cody just because they're not invited for the crimes they did to Cody and accuse him of being a racist to people whose name does not start with a P, don't wear glasses and are straight which none of those show how racism even works. They then ruin the ceremony for Cody which upsets him and leaves then Junior throws a tantrum just because of no buffet. And to make matters worse, they force Cody to apologize even though he and Joseph were the ones who should be apologizing yet they have no remorse for their actions when they claimed they bullied him just to support him but none of this makes any sense when it doesn't even sound like support at all. Junior outright says he isn't apologizing for anything because he didn't do anything wrong, even though he did. He doesn't get any punishment for this either, thus making him a karma houdini.
      • In "Junior's Sad Disney Trip!", he idiotically gives away Joseph and Cody to Mickey Mouse without thinking of the consequences which results in Mickey Mouse and Goofy to almost kill Joseph and Cody.
      • In "Junior's Cheeto Dinosaur", he idiotically caused a nuke to go active and failed to stop it from being deactivated due to his incompetence and as a result destroyed all of Florida.
      • In "The Celebrity Crush", he cut holes into a cancer survivor's "Cancer Free" parachute as he intentionally wanted Toby Sherbert to suffer broken legs which not only have both Thomas and Toby die from the holes being too big, but he traumatized Penelope and Toby's girlfriend, Penelope, various people in the front row due to both Toby and Thomas's blood and remains being splattered all over them and other people behind them due to witnessing the demise of two individuals. Toby may have presumably stolen lots of girls from their boyfriends, but he still didn't deserve this, especially when he was going to do something sweet and selfless. Despite Junior and his friends having remorse over their actions, this doesn't change how they traumatized various people and even left two innocent people dead due to the parachute incident.
      • In "Junior's Valentine's Day Gift", he caused Mickey and Goofy to embarrass both Penelope and Brooklyn Guy by having them rape Karen just to have Penelope see Minnie while also having Brooklyn Guy simp over Minnie.
        • Plus, no matter what Junior does to them in most of his videos, he usually doesn't receive a punishment (besides Junior's Karma) - thus making him a Karma Houdini. This is due to Logan sometimes not writing him in the wrong.
    7. Overall, these problems with Junior have ruined the overall reputation of his character, to the point where many people have considered him to be worse than Jeffy. The downfall of his character is just one of the reasons why SML's quality has been going down the drain in recent years.
      • To make matters even worse, we are meant to sympathize with him because Logan never seems to write him in the wrong (as stated above). This was easy to do so in the 2013-2019 videos since he was constantly being abused - both physically and verbally - by both Bowser and Chef Pee Pee, not to mention the fact that Cody could be a major jerkass towards him during the 2017-2019 era. Sadly, any attempts to get us to sympathize with him in the 2019-present videos fall apart since he is now a selfish greedy brat who doesn't care about anybody but himself.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He was much more likable until late 2019, and even today he still has many funny and likable moments; in "Cody's Cavity", him and Joseph trying to get Cody's cavity out and claiming they are "good friends" can be seen as funny to some people; in "Precious' Biggest Fan", for example, it's easy to feel sorry for him since he (along with Joseph) mourned the death of Precious and paid his respects for her. He also has multiple videos where he reverts to his old personality, like "Bowser Junior's Stinky Friend", "Junior's Embarrassing Video", "Nine Lives", "Junior's Essay", "Junior Saves ToysRus", "Junior's New Year's Resolution", "Groundhog Day", "Junior's Last Meal", "Jeffy the Wrestler", "Junior's Stolen Birthday Present!", etc.
    2. Logan still does a decent job voicing him, as always, except for when he is yelling.
    3. His puppet design is commonly regarded as one of, if not the best SML puppet redesigns since it is rather faithful to Junior's original video game design and fits his current personality well, despite some flaws.
    4. He sometimes gets comeuppances in videos. In "The Film Project", for example, Cody slapped him after he insulted his mom in front of the class - and he fully got his comeuppance in "Junior's Karma" where he got what he deserved for the most part.
      • Another instance of him getting karma is in "Jeffy's Laser Pointer", where he is blinded as a result of Jeffy shining a laser in his eye and is forced to wear glasses for the rest of the video. This is considered karma for him blinding Cody by telling Jeffy to shine the laser pointer in his eyes.
      • In "The Cheerleading Competition" he along with Cody gets disqualified by breaking Heidi's kneecaps. Even though Cody did nothing wrong other than being forced to break her kneecaps by Junior.
    5. To be fair, his unlikable behavior can be justified since his father doesn't support him.
    6. Like Jeffy, he has a Kable10 incarnation who's much more tolerable.
      • Sometimes, often when Joesph isn't around, he is nice to Cody for the most part.
      • Depending on your POV, he and Joseph slightly improved during 2023.

    Trivia

    • In 2021, he, along with every other Mario character, has been permanently turned into SuperMarioLogan human puppets that don't resemble the games due to legal issues with Nintendo.
