This is a very good article, but couldn't it be merged with Bowser? Goomb-omb 21:41, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

Yeah. Merged. Yeah. Thats what it shoiuld be. Like Goomb-omb said.

Yeah.GreenKoopa - Comments or questions?

I don't really think so. He's just about like Mr. L-- A slightly differently clad alter-ego of a character who believes himself to be totally different (the mentality of Rookie is all Rookie, no Bowser). Plus, Cobold gave me permission to make this. ;) YELLOWYOSHI398

What do you mean?[edit]

He isn't at all like Mr.L! Mr.L's look is completely different with a few exceptions, the only difference between Rookie and Bowser is the mask! And he doesn't retain any of his past memory unlike Mr.L, who slightly remembers the heroes because he nicknames them and the nicknames show his memory (he remembers that Mario jumps all the time, that Peach always gets kidnapped and that Bowser's plans are always foiled by Mario) unless the fact that he says they look fimiliar counts. And Bowser got amnesia, while Luigi got hypnotized. They're completely different!M&L Beware my fury! 15:02, 28 January 2012 (EST)

Yeah it should be merged with Bowser under the headline "Alter Ego(s)" or something like that.

Higher Quality Image (Nitpick)[edit]

I'm new to Mario Wiki. So please don't judge me on my opinion. This is just a minor nitpick. I think we should get better a better higher quality image for the second image. Again, just a nitpick.

No, you're totally right, the screenshot of the Rookie fight is too low quality for my tastes. Added {{image-quality}}. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:25, 30 March 2016 (EDT)


His teeth are not just blunt, some of his animations depict his teeth the same as actual Bowser. In the remake, there is no animation where his teeth are blunt. -- 04:25, 15 October 2017 (EDT)

Is Rookie Bowser?[edit]

How can we be sure he's Bowser? (in all seriousness have they ever actually stated in the game that he's Bowser?) Chat Man (talk) 23:30, 15 October 2017 (EDT)

Yes. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:31, 15 October 2017 (EDT)
