It was less than an hour to go before the wedding; Larry entered the royal headquarters to look for Junior. The whole area was empty, and Larry looked through every room but couldn't find him. He was about to give up when he heard a familiar voice.
"Are you looking for someone?" it said from behind Larry. Larry turned around to find Junior.
"There you are. I was looking for you. There's things I need to discuss with you, and it won't wait," Larry said.
"What kind of things? This better be quick because I have somewhere to be!" Junior said.
"What? Like a wedding, perhaps?" Larry said.
"You knew?" Junior asked.
"Yes, that's what I want to talk to you about. And there's other things, too," Larry said.
"I'm listening," Junior said as he awaited Larry's revelations. Larry proceeded to tell Junior everything he and the rest of the Koopalings knew about him, along with the wedding and what Bowser planned to do afterwards. Junior started to smile afterwards, laughing out loud.
"What's so funny?" Larry asked, shocked at Junior's reaction.
"You have no idea, do you?" Junior laughed. He walked slowly towards Larry, who was starting to get scared. "You see, Larry, I knew all along I wasn't really your brother or at all related to Bowser. I am, indeed, an android created by Kamek. Your father has nothing to do with it, but Kamek put him under a spell to ensure he would favor me over you," Junior said. He was standing right in front of Larry, with an evil grin on his face.
"I should have known. King Dad would not abandon us like that," Larry replied, now sweating with fear. Junior nodded in agreement. Larry started to run but Junior tackled him to the floor, keeping him pinned down.
"Now that you know my little secret, I'm afraid I can't let you leave," Junior said. He dragged Larry into his room and tied him up so he couldn't run away. Junior took a needle out of his drawer, filling it with potion from a bottle.
"Do you know what this is, Larry?" Junior taunted as Larry looked on in dread. "This is the stuff that's going to put you under my spell and turn you into an android like me."
"No," Larry said. "No, keep away from me!" Larry was about to scream but Junior put a hand over his mouth.
"Sssh, it will soon be over," Junior said, placing the needle against Larry's neck. Just as he was about to inject the potion, something hard hit Junior's head. He dropped the needle and fell to the ground.
"Ludwig, you saved my life," Larry said, relieved at the sight of Ludwig carrying a hammer.
"I figured Junior was playing us all along. I also figured you were in danger. One of the hammer brothers was kind enough to lend me one his hammers so I could what I did just now," Ludwig explained as he untied Larry.
"Where are the others?" Larry asked.
"Well, King Dad and Peach will most certainly be at the altar by now, so the other Koopalings will be trying to break in. We will, as well, so go on ahead while I deal with Junior. I'll catch up with you," Ludwig said. He tied up Junior while he was still unconcious, but Junior eventually woke up to see Ludwig looking down on him. He tried to move but realized he was now immobilized.
"Hey, wha-" Junior started but was silenced by a cloth Ludwig placed in his mouth.
"Oh no, you have no right to speak, android," Ludwig replied, with Junior giving him an evil look.
"I know exactly what to do with you," Ludwig said as he pulled Junior to his feet and escorted him out of the room.
The rest of the Koopalings waited at the door to the castle chapel and tried to think of ways to get in.
"Where are Ludwig and Larry already? They should be here now," Iggy said.
"They must have gotten held up," Roy said. Larry eventually came down the stairs and joined them.
"Sorry I'm late, I ran into a bit of bother with Junior. Ludwig will be here soon," Larry said.
"Well you're here now. The wedding is less than twenty minutes away. There are only about six other koopas in there apart from Bowser, Kamek and Peach," Iggy said.
"Ludwig? You're finally here?" Wendy said seeing Ludwig join them. She then saw that he was holding a tied-up Junior.
"What's he doing here?" Wendy asked.
"He's our hostage," Ludwig said.
"MMMPH," Junior screamed.
"Shut it, you," Ludwig said.
"There is one more thing we have to do. The question is which one of us is going to do it," Ludwig said.
"What's that?" Morton asked.
"Someone has to go down and let the Mario brothers out. They can help us destroy this whole plot," Ludwig said.
The Koopalings knew Ludwig was serious, even if in any other circumstances they would never release their enemies.
"I'll go," Larry said.
"Ask one of the guards for a key; they know what's going on. Their leader lent me their hammer," Ludwig said as Larry left.
"So, what are we going to do with this fake cloned android?," Roy said, taunting Junior.
"I say we get rid of him, he is of no use to us and is just a useless android. He isn't even real," Iggy said.
"Yeah, let's execute him now," Morton said.
"Dump him in the lava," Roy said.
"Hold on guys, we will deal with Junior as soon as this other stuff has been dealt with," Ludwig answered.
Larry ran back to them not long afterwards.
"It's done, both brothers and Yoshi are released. They know everything," Larry said.
"Well, where are they?" Ludwig asked.
"They will be here. They are getting themselves ready to save Peach," Larry replied.
"It's-a me, Mario!" the familiar voice came from behind. Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi stood next to the Koopalings.
"Just get this over with, and then get out of here," Ludwig said. He hated having to side with his enemies over the issue. Mario and Luigi understood, and decided to use the fire flower and starman they had been saving. They burst the door down and startled everyone.
"Mario, you came!" Peach exclaimed.
"You! How did you escape your confinement?" Bowser said, shocked.
Mario just smirked without saying anything. He ran towards Peach and threw fireballs at the congregation.
"Kamek, get them!" Bowser ordered. Kamek tried to use his wand to zap the brothers, but Luigi deflected them with his star power. Mario grabbed Peach and jumped out of the window. He landed on top of Yoshi, followed by Luigi.
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Bowser screamed. "After all that, we had it all planned out but we still failed."
"King Dad!" Ludwig shouted, walking in with Junior.
"Ludwig, what are you doing with Junior? Let him go right now!" Bowser ordered.
"No. I will not let this android go," Ludwig said.
Both Bowser and Kamek were shocked at this response.
"This is your brother, and you should respect him as such," Bowser said.
"No, King Dad, he is not my brother," Ludwig said. He took the tape recorder out of his shell and played it, shocking everyone inside the chapel.
Kamek lunged for Ludwig but Bowser stopped him.
"Not only that, but Kamek put you under a spell so you would favor Junior over us!" Ludwig added.
"That's a lie," Kamek said, but Bowser glared at him.
"Spell? What?" Bowser shook his head with confusion.
"Are you going to listen to this nonsense?" Kamek said, but Bowser was starting to break out of the spell.
"Good, he's coming back," Wendy said as the rest of the Koopalings came to Ludwig's defense.
"It is your nonsense I will not be listening to," Bowser said, snatching Kamek's wand. "You won't be needing this anymore. Take this traitor away," he said to two hammer brothers, who escorted Kamek out of the chapel.
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You will regret this, Bowser, I swear! I made you who you are, ME!" Kamek said as he was being dragged away.
"King Dad?" Ludwig said as the rest of the Koopalings began to sob.
"I'm so sorry I let you kids down, I don't know what came over me. You know I would never abandon you, don't you?" Bowser said. The Koopalings all nodded.
"It's okay, King Dad, we forgive you. It wasn't your fault Kamek cast a spell on you," Roy said.
"Speaking of that, what are we going to do now?" Ludwig said.
"This clone is evil, he tried to turn me into an android," Larry replied.
"He should be finished, end of story," Iggy said.
"Well, that's settled. Junior is no longer part of this family. Take him straight to the trapdoor room, you know what to do," Bowser said.
Junior struggled to break away, but Ludwig had tied him tight.
"I'll take him right away," Ludwig said as he took Junior to the trapdoor room. He placed him on the trapdoor, and pulled a lever on the wall.
Junior was gone.
Ludwig and the rest of the Koopalings were satisfied that things were back to normal and Ludwig was back to being heir.
