Nintendask Wikia

AskMidbus is an ask blog featuring the character of Midbus from "Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story". It was created on November 9th, 2014.

Using a combination of art, story, and sassy responses to asked questions; the blog sheds light on the backstory and ongoing characterization of the former Fawful minion. Subject matter skews more mature, with themes of depression, violence, death, and guilt being heavily focused on.

Oh, and there's a lot of half naked bara. A LOT.


Midbus is a gioza citizen of the Koopa Kingdom, and well known for being the former right hand of Lord Fawful. During the events of Bowser's Inside Story, the gioza betrayed King Bowser and helped Fawful to wreck havoc on the mushroom kingdom and take over Bowser's castle all in an attempt to help his master achieve full power to obtain the Dark Star. He was summarily defeated by Bowser and the Mario Brothers and left frozen inside the castle walls.

After the events of Bowser's Inside Story, Midbus has bid his time, developing his own resources and crafting his own plans, all to take revenge (though on who exactly hasn't been exactly stated). At the same time, Midbus also has been forming his own unique relationships and memories, all without a boss to guide him. Life in the Nintendask world isn't easy when you look Midbus. Rivaling the Koopa King in size attracts attention, and he now navigates the world, reflecting on past mistakes, and teetering between crippling guilt and blinding spite.

Also he just loves to show off.


Midbus is a fairly large gioza, towering over other characters in height and exceeding many in width. His body is incredibly well built, matching Bowser's, right down to a layer of softness around the midsection. Complimenting his physique, his face features a thick square jaw, broad nose, and heavy brows. Like all gioza, Midbus has two large tusks protruding from his mouth, dark tan skin, and pointed ears.

Perhaps his most noticeable feature is his brilliant pink hair and beard. The length varies often, but is typically grown long, sometimes with buzzed side. If long enough, his hair will be tied back in some manner with a hair ornament in the shape of horns giving him a "demon" look. Likewise his eyes are pink.

His outfits fall between royal regalia, punk, and urban. Ranging from classy formal to lounge casual. His formal wear tends to be studded, featuring chains and other absurd accessories. His casual wear is far less adorned, and instead is often low cut, tight, and shows off his muscles.

Midbus currently has two tattoos. His first is present on his left shoulder, a Bowser Insignia. He refuses to speak much of it, but he has shared that he got it sometime before "the big freeze". Post thawing, he at some point damaged it resulting in a large x shaped scar covering it up.

His second tattoo is on the back of his neck, and often remains obscured by his hair. It pictures a spiked thwomp with the numbers "935" on it. It has been inferred that this was a sort of branding done during the time he volunteered as a test subject, also before "the big freeze". He is fairly sensitive about it, violently lashing out at those who touch it without his knowledge.
