Why does Bowser keep kidnapping Princess Peach?
Sure, she might one of the very few women in Mushroom Kingdom but after 23 years, she can’t be that good in bed still.
And there’s no real reason to.
She holds almost no power; hell, she’s not even a queen.
As far as I know, she has no parents. So being held ransom for money. After all, gold coins are just scattered all around.
And if Bowser just wants to rule the land… Why not just kill her and raid the kingdom as he overthrows it.
This has lead me to the conclusion that Bowser is just a sick, twisted bastard who gets enjoyment by crushing people’s hearts by meaninglessly torturing their love ones.
