Princess Peach, casually called Peach and sometimes referred to as Princess Toadstool, is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom ans is the secondary protagonist of the Mario series. the main reson she get's kidnap is becasue of her Powers

Peach first appeared in Super Mario Bros. and was created by Shigeru Miyamoto to be the damsel-in-distress throughout most Mariogames. She resides in her castle along with many Toads. Her kingdom is often attacked by the Koopa Troop, a group led by Bowser.

Peach has an affinity for the color pink, which accents her feminine personality and kind temperament. Peach's girlish nature and role as the damsel are often represented with her heart abilities and Princess emblems. Peach's initial design was said to represent her stubborn, yet cute, appearance.

Since her debut, Peach has appeared in installments related to the Mario game series for over two decades. Peach is occasionally a supporting character in mainstream games, and almost always playable in spinoff installments. Her most prominent appearance to date is as the heroine of Super Princess Peach

Super Mario series

Super Mario Bros. was Peach's debut appearance. Bowser invades the Mushroom Kingdom, transforms its inhabitants into various objects, and kidnaps Peach (then known as "Princess Toadstool") so she cannot reverse his spell. Mario and Luigi go to rescue her. After they defeat Bowser, the brothers rescue Toadstool. In thanks, Toadstool gave Mario a kiss on the cheek.  iSuper Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Bowser kidnaps Peach again. Mario and Luigi travel through the Mushroom Kingdom again to save her. After defeating Bowser, the Bros. save her again.  

In  Super Mario Bros. 3, Bowser sends his Koopalings to capture parts of the Mushroom Kingdom. Princess Toadstool sends Mario and Luigi to defeat the Koopalings. She helps them by sending them items. After the Bros. defeat the final Koopaling, they return to find that Bowser has kidnapped Toadstool. The two travel to Bowser's hideout in Dark Land and rescue her. In the English version, Toadstool plays a joke on Mario and Luigi at the very end by saying to them, "Thank you, but our princess is in another castle! ... Just kidding!"

In Super Mario World, Mario, Luigi and Toadstool are having a vacation in Dinosaur Land when Bowser kidnaps Peach again. He takes her to his castle in the Valley of Bowser. He holds her inside his Koopa Clown Carduring his battle with the Bros., which allows her to throw them items. After she is rescued, Toadstool kisses Mario on the cheek. 

In Super Mario 64, Peach invites Mario to her castle for cake, but before he arrives, Bowser takes control over the Power Stars and seals Peach in the fresco over the entrance of the castle. After Mario defeats Bowser and rescues Peach, Peach thanks Mario by kissing him and baking him cake.

This installment is the only game for the Mario series overall to provide both Peach's Japanese and Western names. The letter is signed as "Toadstool", and the English voice acting simply is "Peach".

Super Mario 64 DS had the same plot, except this time Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario also help Mario rescue Peach. In this remake, she wears a pony tail.

A little known feature of both games is that if the player searches in the Princess's Secret Slide room, they will find a memo from Peach. It reads "My castle is in great peril!! I know it's because of Bowser again. Will he never tire of terrorizing us? He stole the castle's Power Stars and disappeared into the walls along with us! Retrieve all of the Power Stars from the walls and the paintings in the castle." She has another memo in Bowser in the Dark World, teaching Mario how to fight Bowser (though it is only directly addressed as her in the N64 version).

In Super Mario Sunshine, Mario, Peach, and Toadsworth go to Isle Delfino for vacation. While Mario is cleaning Delfino Plaza, Shadow Mario grabs her and runs off. Mario chases Shadow Mario and rescues Peach. After Mario collects ten Shine Sprites, Shadow Mario kidnaps Peach and takes her to Pinna Park. When Mario confronts him, he reveals that he is Bowser's son Bowser Jr. and says that Peach is his mother and that he is protecting her from Mario. He attacks Mario in his Mecha-Bowser, but Mario defeats him. Bowser Jr. flees to Corona Mountain with Peach. Mario makes his way to Corona Mountain and finds Bowser and Bowser Jr. forcing Peach to swim with them. Mario defeats Bowser and rescues Peach.

in New Super Mario Bors Princess Peach is kidnapped once again in New Super Mario Bros.. As Peach and Mario are taking a walk around the castle, it is struck by lightning. When Mario goes to investigate, Bowser Jr. sneaks behind Peach and kidnaps her. Mario chases Bowser Jr., throughout the Mushroom Kingdom. Eventually, Mario was able to confront both Bowser Jr. and his dad, Bowser, rescuing Peach in the end.

In Super Mario Galaxy, Peach invites Mario to the Star Festival. When he arrives, Bowser lifts Peach's castle out of the ground and takes her to the creation of his new galaxy. Mario attempts to ride on the castle, but Kamek attacks him, sending him flying into space. With the help of a Luma, Mario sets off to rescue Peach. Peach sends Mario letters with 1-Up Mushrooms throughout the game. After Mario rescues Peach and the universe is saved, Mario and Peach wake up in the Mushroom Kingdom reunited.

In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Peach is celebrating her birthday with friends at the castle. During that time, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings bring a cake into the castle and kidnap Peach. Mario, Luigi, and two Toads (specifically Blue Toad andYellow Toad) give chase to hold them accountable, along with rescuing Peach in the process.

In Super Mario Galaxy 2, Peach invites Mario to the Star Festival again. When Mario arrives, a giant Bowser kidnaps Peach, so Mario travels through the galaxies to rescue her again. Once Mario defeats Bowser, he returns to the Festival and enjoys a giant cake.

In Super Mario 3D Land, Bowser kidnaps Peach while she was investigating the damage done to the Tail Tree after a ferocious storm. Upon Mario and a few Toads noticing said case the next day at the same location, Mario gives chase to find Peach and bring her back to safety.

In New Super Mario Bros. 2, the Koopalings kidnap Peach while Mario and Luigi were exploring the castle grounds, which was filled with a lot of coins scattered all around. When news of the kidnapping was revealed to Mario & Luigi, the two give chase to hold each Koopaling (and Bowser) accountable for the capture and rescue Peach at the end.

In New Super Mario Bros. U, Peach is held captive in her own castle after Bowser throws Mario, Luigi, Yellow and Blue Toad out during a tea party. When the four notice from Acorn Plains that Peach's castle is held under siege, they give chase to rescue Peach and take back the castle.

Peach is also captured in the game's add-on content New Super Luigi U, since the game features the same story as the original.

Princess Peach makes a return in Super Mario 3D World alongside Mario, Luigi and Toad as a playable character, which is the first time since Super Mario Bros. 2 (25 years) she has been playable in the mainstream Mario games, her first playable appearance since Super Princess Peach, and also the first time she appears playable in a 3D Mario title. She is the slowest of the playable characters, but much like in Super Mario Bros. 2, she can temporarily hover in mid-air. Like every other character in the game, she can use all of the power-ups that appear. When power-ups are set to match each characters' color, hers are always pink. She appears wearing a pink Cat Suit, Boomerang Suit, Propeller Box, and Ice Skate.

In the Dr. Mario installments for the series, Peach wears a pink nurse outfit. In localizations of the original instruction booklet, she is mentioned and given the name Nurse Toadstool, much like how Mario is known as a doctor in these games. Nurse Toadstool would presumably be Dr. Mario's close personal assistant, but she does not have a major role in any version of the game and she is barely seen outside promotional artwork.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee during Event 35: Time for a Checkup, Peach is dressed in white nurse-like clothing and helps Dr. Mario fight Luigi.

Mario Golf series

In NES Open Tournament Golf, Peach only appears as Mario's caddy.

Peach makes her first Mario Golf playable appearance in Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64. She has one of the lightest hits, best control, great spin, and hits the ball straight despite lacking distance.

In Mario Golf for the Game Boy Color, Peach is unplayable. Peach has appeared in Peach's Castle. When the player gets first place in every tournament, Peach sends a letter, inviting players to participate in her tournament. When the player gets at least third place in the tournament, Peach appears in the awards ceremony to hand out the trophy. Peach is a playable participant in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. Her shot path is straight, but her max yards is a below-average 203. Her shot height is medium. Her impact and control is fairly good, but her spin is low. She holds a tournament in her course named Peach's Castle Grounds.

in Mario Golf: Advance Tour 

Peach invites Neil and Ella to participate in her Open once they have proven themselves in their world. When Neil or Ella gets first place in every Tourney in singles or doubles, she sends them a letter inviting them to her tourney. When Neil or Ella gets at least third place in the tourney, Peach oversees the ceremony as Toadsworth hands out the trophy.

Princess Peach appears in Mario Golf: World Tour as a default playable character. She once again plays with an easy-control, low power style. In the game there are Peach-related clubs and gear for the player's Mii to use. Also, the Castle Club mode takes place at her castle. In this mode she wears her usual dress, though in-game she wears her golf clothing. 

Mario Kart series

Peach has always been a playable participant in the Mario Kart series. In Super Mario Kart, when controlled by the CPU, Peach sometimes uses mushrooms to shrink the other drivers. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Peach is teamed up with Daisy, and their special item is the Heart. Peach's personal kart in Mario Kart Double Dash!! is the Heart Coach, which is available by default. In Mario Kart DS, her karts are the Royale and the Light Tripper. In Mission Mode, she has to race against King Boo. She is advanced at drifting corners and has average item use. Peach is classified Medium in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, but Light in Mario Kart DS. Peach appears in Mario Kart Wii as a Medium-size driver, unlike Mario Kart DS and has an Acceleration Bonus Stat of +5 making her the easiest Medium driver to reach top speed; in this game, she also wears a biking outfit when the player chooses motorbikes. In Mario Kart 7, Peach is classified as a light racer.

Peach's racing courses are Peach Beach, Peach Circuit, Royal Raceway, and Peach Gardens. In Mario Kart Wii a statue of Peach appears in the battle course Block Plaza. A billboard featuring her also appears in Moonview Highway, and her emblem in is seen in Dry Dry Ruins. In Mario Kart 7, Peach does not have a race course, but a battle course called the Sherbet Rink. Peach will be a returning playable racer in Mario Kart 8.

In Yoshi's Safari, Bowser attacks Jewelry Land. Bowser catches King Fret and Prince Pine and holds them captive. Being a good friend of Prince Pine, Peach sends a letter to Yoshi and Mario to help them. It is also the very first game to call her Princess Peach in the Western games, as opposed to Princess Toadstool.

Peach appears in Mario & Wario. She, Mario, and Yoshi need Wanda's help after Wario drops buckets on their heads. Peach is the slowest but easiest character to direct.

Peach also appears in Yoshi's Cookie, where she is a selectable character in the VS Mode.

Her stats are the following: 1 ATT - 3 DEF - 3 MES - 2 LIM

Peach appears in the Japan-only game Excitebike: Bun Bun Mario Battle Stadium, where she is a playable character (along with Mario, Luigi, Toad and Wario).

Peach is also playable in several educational computer games. She is one of the playable characters in Mario Teaches Typing, where she gives the typing lessons, then she appears in Mario Teaches Typing 2, with the same role.

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Toadstool was one of Mario's party members, along with Mallow,Geno and Bowser. At the beginning of the game, Bowser kidnapped her with his Koopa Clown Car, while she was sitting outside of Mario's Pad. Mario came to her aid, and defeated Bowser after a battle. Exor crashed into Bowser's Keep, and sent the three flying in different directions. Toadstool landed in the tower of Booster. Booster fell in love with her, and planned to force her to marry him, despite her cries of, "MARIO, HELP ME! MARIO, HELP ME! MARIO, HELP ME!". After Mario had charged Booster Tower and defeated Knife Guy and Grate Guy, Booster grabbed Toadstool and ran away with her up Booster Hill. He reached Marrymore, where he wanted to marry Toadstool as soon as possible. Mario managed to stop the wedding, and took Toadstool back to the Mushroom Kingdom. She was put under the eyes of the Chancellor, who, desperate for the princess's safety, would not have wanted her to follow Mario on his quest against Smithy. However, Toadstool escaped from the castle with the help of her "Grandma", who dressed herself up as the princess, and joined Mario's party to help them defeat Smithy. At the end of the game, Toadstool and Mario returned to Mushroom Kingdom together.

Mario Party series

Peach is also playable in all games of the Mario Party series. For the first installment, Peach competes with the others to determine which of them is the superstar. The second installment has Peach helping out to save Mario Land from Bowser's takeover. In Mario Party 3's Story Mode, the player has to defeat her on the Blowhard duel board for the Love Star Stamp. On the Mario Party 3 duel boards, she starts with Toad as her partner.

In Mario Party 4, Peach is one of the participants exploring the Party Cube which like previous installments included boards and corresponding minigames. Peach joins her friends in Mario Party 5 to save the Dream Depot. For Mario Party 6, Peach helps out to end a fight between the Sun and the Moon. In Mario Party 7, her default partner is Daisy, and their Character Orb is the Flower Orb. Peach appears in Mario Party 8 participating in the Star Carnival alongside her friends. The most recent installment, Mario Party 9, has Peach helping the rest of her friends take back the Mini Stars that were stolen by Bowser and his troops.

For the portable installments of the Mario Party series, Peach is one of the playable characters in Mario Party Advance; she must be played in the Love Quest, Love That Princess!, when visiting Mr. I. Peach's second appearance was in Mario Party DS, in which she and her friends answer a fake invitation from Bowser and then are unfortunately shrunken to the size of chess pieces.

Depending on who she is teamed up with will determine their team name. Peach has earned team names such as "Fan Favorites", "Pink Punishers", "Black Peaches", "Sweetie Pies", and "Glamour Hammer".

Mario Party 3 was the final Mario series installment overall for Peach to wear her classic main dress. Mario Party 4 was the first installment overall for Peach to wear her modern/current main dress, which had substantial changes from her classic dress in Mario series' installments prior to it. Certain features were still kept from Peach's classic dress for her modern/current main outfit including her brooch, gloves, and earrings. Peach appeared in the modern version of the Donkey Kong arcade game in Game & Watch Gallery 3. Donkey Kong had kidnapped her, and Mario had to rescue her. Peach was also the main character of the modern version of Cook, where she had to flip sausages, bacon, and eggs, without letting them fall. In the Mario Tennis series, Peach is a Technique character, who depends on strategy since she is not that strong. 

In Mario Tennis, even though Peach is Technique, she leans more towards all-around. This is because of her height to reach the ball, and her speed and ability to send the ball over the net.

In the Game Boy Color version of the game, she appears on her castle, narrating the game. Daisy is at her side all the time.

In Mario Power Tennis, Princess Peach is a technique player. Her most notable attribute is her control over the ball, allowing her to make sharp hits that touch the sides of the court. Being taller than Mario, she has slightly above average reach. Her biggest disadvantage is her lack of power; her serve is among the weakest in the game. She is also a tad slow, and her lunge is only average. Her Offensive Power Shot is the Super Peach Spin, which is an extreme curved shot that sends opponents walking toward the net, while her Defensive Power Shot is the Sweet Kiss Return, a lob shot. Peach's home turf is the Peach Dome, which is the same place where trophies get handed out when participants win tournaments. Peach appears in a few of the trophy ceremonies for specified characters (when players choose Singles Tournaments). In the event that Peach herself wins a Singles Tournament, her respective trophies are handed out by Mario and Luigi.

In the Game Boy Advance version for Mario Power TennisMario Tennis: Power Tour, Peach invites Clay and Ace to her tournament after they complete the Island Open. She has them escorted by Mario and Toadsworth on her private plane.

For Mario Tennis Open, the latest game in the series, Peach returns as one of the starting participants. Her home court is now called Peach's Palace, which is a carpet court. She uses her usual tennis clothes in this game. She has the same stats as she had in Mario Power Tennis; she is still a technique player. Players can buy an entire Peach gear set from the shop for their Miis, as well as unlocking a Peach costume after they have collected at least eight-hundred points in Ring Shot, one of the four Special Games. In Paper Mario, King Bowser once again kidnapps Peach, this time using his castle to carry her away. While being held captive in her own room in the castle, a Star Kid named Twink come to help her, and together they find a secret passage out of her room. Peach sabotages Bowser's plots by supplying Mario with a relatively constant stream of information, using Twink as her messenger. She also uses a special treasure chest, where she could store items, and Mario could fetch them at the chest's counterpart at Shooting Star Summit. Peach then bakes a cake for Gourmet Guy, and also participatei in the 64th Trivia Quiz-off run by Bowser's minions. Peach win a Sneaky Parasol, which allowes hrerto disguise herself as one of Bowser's guards. She could use the parasol to become a Koopatrol, a Clubba and a Hammer Bro. However, her disguise is lifted by Kammy Koopa as Kammy recognizes Peach.

After his defeat, Bowser grabs the princess and run to the roof of the castle. He then uses the Star Rod to make himself completely invincible. Princess Peach and Twink get into a fight with Kammy Koopa, and defeats her. Peach then wishs that her kingdom would remain safe. Twink and Peach adds their power to the Star Beam, then called Peach Beam, making it able to break Bowser's invincibility. Bowser finally is defeated and Peach's castle returns to its original spot in Toad Town. After the celebration parade, Mario take Peach to his place to watch the fireworks. Before the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Peach goes on a trip to Rogueport. On the market, she meets an old saleswoman, presumably one of the Shadow Sirens. They decide that Peach would be the best body for their bodiless Shadow Queen, who was locked up behind the Thousand-Year Door for exactly one thousand years by the time of the game. They give Peach the Magical Map, as she had a pure heart, which was needed to be able to open the chest of the map. The Shadow Sirens then tricked the alien Sir Grodus into capturing Peach and animating the Shadow Queen with her body. Before this happened, however, Peach had already sent the Magical Map to Mario, inviting him on a treasure hunt. Peach was taken to the X-Naut Fortress on the Moon. While both Mario and, unsuccessfully, Bowser searched for the Crystal Stars to rescue her, the princess became active herself in the fortress. The base's main computer, the TEC-XX, fell in love with her due to a short circuit in its system, and betrayed Grodus to help Peach escape. He allowed her to send an e-mail to Mario at regular intervals. By the computer's orders, Peach dressed up as an X-Naut to question Grodus, and also made herself an invisibility potion to find out even more about Grodus's plans. However, Grodus had TEC shut down when he found out, and took Peach to the Palace of Shadow. Mario followed, and he met up with Grodus in the room right before the tomb of the Shadow Queen. Grodus confronted Mario, and was prepared to kill Peach if Mario made a false move. However, Bowser crashed through the ceiling and fell on top of Grodus. While Mario and Bowser were fighting, Grodus took Peach down to the tomb and offered her as a body for the Shadow Queen. The ancient 1000-year old demon then possessed Peach, but refused to take Grodus's orders, nearly killing him. The Shadow Queen engaged battle with Mario and his partners. However, she found Peach's body too weak and returned to her true form (a purple shadow creature) for the final battle. Peach was able to give her powers to Mario for this. She could talk out of the Shadow Queen's body as the demon was weakened by the encouraging voices of the entire population of the Rogueport area, which were brought to the basement of the Palace of Shadow by the magic of the Crystal Stars. In the end, the Shadow Queen was defeated and Peach was restored. Then she along with Mario, Luigi, and Toadsworth leave Rogueport to return to the Mushroom Kingdom. Post-game, Peach remains in the Mushroom Kingdom while Mario, Luigi, and Toadsworth return to Rogueport to find another treasure.

In Super Paper Mario, Peach along with Bowser, Luigi, and Bowser's minions were kidnapped by Count Bleck. Bleck forces Peach and Bowser to marry, the only way to form the evil Chaos Heart, which would destroy the world. As Luigi, who was attending the wedding, stomped on it in an attempt to stop it, everything was destroyed. Peach, however, survived and later escapes Bleck's Castle (with the help of Private Koopa and Dimentio (secretly), a follower of Count Bleck). Peach fell from the sky into Flipside; although she was temporarily unconscious where Mario found her, she got better and joined the team after Mario gave her some Spicy Soup. She could float with her parasol, and could also shield herself from her enemies using that same parasol as well. Luigi and Bowser later joined the cause, though Bowser had to be convinced by Peach and Mario.

Over time, Peach and the rest of the gang would eventually make it to Count Bleck's lair. In Chapter 8-2, Mimi, a loyal minion of Count Bleck, taunted her for having been kidnapped so many times and for being rescued by plumbers instead of just rescuing herself. Peach and Mimi clashed soon after. When Peach won, a trap door was activated and Mimi fell through it. However, Peach saved her. The two fell down the shaft and were thought to be lost, but both survived. Peach comes back during the final battle against Count Bleck. As it was revealed, Dimentio was the real threat, as Bleck only wanted to destroy the world after the loss of his girlfriend. His girlfriend though turned out to be Tippi, a member of Mario's team. After defeating Super Dimentio and freeing Luigi, Peach witnessed the marriage of Bleck and Tippi in order to stop the Void. 

in Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Princess Peach first appears in the intro, when she is hosting Sticker Fest, a holiday where wishes come true with the power of the Royal Stickers and the Sticker Comet. However, Bowser crashes the festival and steals the Royal Stickers. He also kidnaps Peach and the local Toads, sticking them with Bowser Tape. Mario soon saves the Toads and eventually Peach. She then thanks him for allowing everyone's wish to come true - a peaceful kingdom. The Sticker Fest returns and Peach once again congratulates Mario and the kingdom for their efforts.

For the Super Smash Bros. installments, Peach made her debut appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee (as one of the starting participants). In this installment, she can float in mid-air and pull vegetables out of the ground as in Super Mario Bros. 2. She has a great recovery capacity but is easy to send flying. In spite of this she is a fairly easy character to use. Her Down Smash and Up Smash are quick and have several powerful, high priority hits. Peach is one of the best edge guarders in the series. Her Neutral A slap is good for disrupting combos and grabs, as well as starting combos herself. Peach's Forward Aerial Crown Slap is a great horizontal killer. She can also use an umbrella which can be used to float to the ground and whack people with. In Adventure Mode, she is fought at the end of the first stage. The player will have to fight her and Mario or Luigi.Princess Peach's Castle is also a course in the game. The detail in Peach's appearance is also greatly increased with a much more realistic look as compared to general Mario game series' installments.

Peach's return appearance for Super Smash Bros. Brawl had her heavily redesigned, based on her more recent appearances. She keeps her moveset from Super Smash Bros. Melee, as well as stay as a light character with the ability to float. Peach's new design in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is by far the most detailed look for Peach since her previous appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee. There are several changes about her in Brawl. Her Peach Bomber can cover more distance and it releases a cloud of hearts. Also her Parasol and Toad can KO now. Peach's Final Smash is called Peach Blossom, and matches Peach's peaceful personality. It, by default inflicts 40% damage to all foes and causes them to fall asleep. Peach has several trophies in her honor. One is of her Brawl appearance and Final Smash. Also she has two of her Paper Mario appearances and her as Baby Peach. Her stickers are based on game artworks forSuper Princess PeachMario Superstar BaseballMario Strikers Charged, and Super Mario Bros. 2.

In The Subspace Emissary, Peach was watching Mario and Kirby fighting together with Princess Zelda, and ran down to assist them after the arrival of the Primids. However, she is soon captured by Petey Piranha and put into a cage along with Zelda. Kirby, who battles Petey Piranha, has the choice to rescue either Peach or Zelda. If she is not rescued, Wario appears and uses a Dark Cannon to transform her into a trophy and runs off with her. Peach is later rescued by King Dedede along with Luigi and Ness. But his castle is raided by Bowser and his forces, who takes her with him.

In the very latter part of the Subspace Emissary story, Peach and Zelda are found on the Halberd held captive in trophy form. After Shadow Bugs sneak in to engulf their trophies and copy their forms (resulting in their forming false versions of Peach and Zelda for a second time), they challenge Meta Knight, Lucario, and Solid Snake, who just entered the room to rescue the two princesses. Once the "false forms" of Peach and Zelda were defeated, Peach and Zelda were rescued and were able to join the rest of the group to help take back the Halberd. After that process was done, Peach also went into Subspace with the others, where they find Tabuu, the true enemy. She gets hit by his Off Waves and turned back into a trophy along with the others, but Kirby, revived by one of King Dedede's badges, manages to save her and some of the others before going to face Tabuu in a final battle.If Peach is rescued, she will team up with Kirby and escape the stadium on a Warp Star. Peach and Kirby are chased by the Halberd and are forced to land on it. However, an Arwing, which was hit by the Halberd's artillery, knocks them off the ship. Unfortunately, later on in the story, Peach gets caught off guard, resulting in Bowser turning Peach into a trophy with his Dark Cannon (leaving behind a clone of Peach). As Link and Yoshi slay this clone, Mario and Pit believe that they killed the real Peach, putting the two teams into a brief conflict. Peach has been confirmed to be a returning playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. She retains her appearance from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but has a brighter, less pale color scheme. She appears to be retaining her moveset from the past installments, though her up smash now spawns a ribbon. Toad is Peach's standard special move in Super Smash Bros. MeleeSuper Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Peach will bring out Toad to shield her. Toad will absorb any attack and send it back to the opponent. According to one of Peach's trophies, he does this by sending spores back at the opponent. In Brawl, Toad is capable of a knocking an opponent out of the arena. Toad can only be held out for a very small time, so it is hard to master. Kirby can use Toad if he sucks up Peach's powers. The Peach Bomber is Peach's side special move in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When executed, Peach will leap forward, twirl and ram an enemy with her rear. Upon contact with another player, it will cause an explosion. In Melee, it is a fire explosion which incinerates her opponents, while in Brawl, hearts appear and no incineration. The attack is Peach's strongest move but, despite being powerful, takes a while to use, which can leave her open for enemy attack. It is very effective when she is battling multiple opponents. 

Peach Parasol" redirects here. For information about the glider from Mario Kart 7,  
Peach Parasol is Peach's up special move in Melee and Brawl. It serves as a recovery move as well as doing little damage. She smashes up with a white Parasol and damages any players who it hits. This attack is very similar to Mario's Super Jump Punch, in the fact that it launches her up, and hits the opponent several times in one jump. She then comes down, safely gliding down on her parasol, acting as one of the most useful third jumps in both games. Peach is unable to attack while gliding. However, The parasol can damage enemies by touching them. Furthermore, the parasol can be closed during flight to fall quickly and become helpless. Pressing up again will open her umbrella and allow her to float again, although altitude cannot be regained. In Brawl, her parasol is based heavily on it in Super Paper Mario; while in Melee, it is a traditional parasol only appearing in that game.

If Peach uses the Peach Parasol while holding the Parasol item, she will replace her usual Parasol with that Parasol. Vegetables are items that can be used by Peach in both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. She can pluck them from the ground with her down special move. Peach can throw these vegetables at other players, and they will bounce off opponents, which allows Peach to grab them again, and continue throwing it at the opponent. This can also work to her foes advantage, however, as any character can catch them. The turnips do a varying amount of damage, depending on their facial expression. Sometimes, Peach will pull a Mr. Saturn, a Beam Sword or a Bob-omb out of the ground. Occasionally, a vegetable with the face depicted on the left will appear. These only appear at a 1/58 chance, but have more than 30% increased damage. The attack is a reference to Super Mario Bros. 2, where players were able to pull Vegetables out of the ground, and then throw them at enemies. Peach Blossom is Peach's Final Smash from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Akin to the princess's unique blend of offensive and defensive maneuvers in battle, this tactic allows her to gain an edge over her opponents either by attacking them or restoring her own health. Peach can only perform this attack after breaking open a Smash Ball.

Peach Blossom made its first and only appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Visually, the attack is reminiscent of the sugar-sweet art style of Peach's first solo adventure, Super Princess Peach, which was published after Super Smash Bros. Melee and before Super Smash Bros. Brawl. While most of the characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl have Final Smashes based on previous moves or experiences, Peach Blossom is an entirely original creation.

Decorative hearts flutter around her and a decorative "border" featuring blossoming peach trees and two images of Princess Peach adorns the area around her. As Peach dances in a spotlight to a sped up version of the Coin Heaven/The Sky/Warp Zone theme from Super Mario Bros. 3, all of her opponents fall into a deep Sleep and take damage. The closer to Peach an enemy is, the longer they will sleep and the more damage they will take. Typical damage ranges from ten to forty percent. Next, Peaches fall from the top of the stage. At this point the attack technically ends.

However, as the princess's enemies remain unconscious for a time after the attack, she is free to do as she likes for a short time. Peach can restore her health by eating the Peaches and use her other attacks on her sleeping opponents. Because of the extra damage she has already inflicted, well-charged Smash Attacks may send opponents flying off the screen. Once Peach attacks an enemy, they will immediately awaken and have a chance to recover. It is possible that her enemies will eat her peaches if they return to the stage. Enemies can also avoid falling asleep if they jump and stay off the ground until Peach finishes the dance. 

Mario & Luigi series

Prior to the events of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Peach was notified by the Beanbean Kingdom that the witch Cackletta would come and try to steal her voice. Cackletta wanted to do this in order to waken the Beanstar, a star-shaped bean which would grant wishes to everyone. The Beanstar has been sleeping and could only be wakened by a pure voice, in order to prevent abuse. Peach took precautions and when Cackletta and Fawful, dressed as ambassadors, arrived at her castle, they were not greeted by Peach, but by Birdo, who was disguised as the princess. Cackletta and Fawful unknowingly stole Birdo's voice and escaped from the castle, leaving Birdo with a voice of exploding characters. However, Mario, Luigi and Bowser, who were not aware of the true identity of the "princess", followed Cackletta to the Beanbean Kingdom before the real Peach was able to intervene.

After Mario and Luigi had presumably killed Cackletta at the Woohoo Hooniversity, Peach went to the Beanbean Kingdom with her plane. Peach revealed Birdo's disguise, thanked Mario and Luigi for taking care of the Cackletta problem, and decided to spend the holidays in the Beanbean Kingdom. She expressed the wish to travel to Little Fungitown, a settlement of Toad emigrants, which was lying across the dangerous Teehee Valley. Toadsworth insisted that Mario and Luigi accompany the princess on this journey. During their venture through Teehee Valley, Peach had to be protected from any harm in the desert. When she disappeared from Mario and Luigi's view, Gritty Goombas would appear instantly and take her to an underground dungeon. At the valley's end, Peach ran into Trunkle, a giant rock monster, but Mario and Luigi saved her from it before it was too late.

Later, Bowletta kidnapped Peach in order to make sure to awaken the Beanstar this time, which had shown angry reactions when confronted with Birdo's voice. She took Peach, who was at the Mushroom Kingdom embassy of Little Fungitown at the time, using Bowser's Koopa Clown Car. However, Cackletta was no longer in the possession of the Beanstar itself. When Mario and Luigi met Bowletta in Joke's End, Luigi dressed himself up in Peach's spare dress to fool Bowletta and Fawful into thinking he was Peach. The plan worked, and Bowletta released the real Peach, and kidnapped Luigi instead. In the meantime, Mario received a kiss from Peach. After Luigi's escape from the repaired Koopa Cruiser, Peach stayed in the Little Fungitown embassy until Bowletta was defeated. Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time starts with a flashback to the past. At the time the story starts, Toadsworth the Younger always took care of the baby princess, since she cried often. Baby Mario and Baby Luigi would sometimes come to play with her. And even Baby Bowser still came to kidnap her. But one day, aliens known as Shroobs invaded the Mushroom Kingdom. And since Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Bowser, Baby Peach and Young Toadsworth were all there, Baby Bowser called Kamek to get them out of the castle. Kamek arrived and took them out of the castle with the Koopa Cruiser just in time.

In the present, Peach, Toadiko and Toadbert had used E. Gadd's Time Machine to travel back to the past, unaware of traveling to the time where the Shroobs were attacking. When they got to the past, the Shroobs cornered Peach and the Toads. Elder Princess Shroob, the leader of the Shroobs, and Princess Shroob, her younger sister, attacked Peach. Peach grabbed the time machine's power supply, the Cobalt Star, and trapped Elder Princess Shroob inside it. Then she broke the Cobalt Star into pieces, while Elder Princess Shroob was still inside. While the Cobalt Starshards were spread around the world, Peach was held captive by Princess Shroob.

While Mario and Luigi teamed up with their baby selves to recover the Cobalt Shards, which they needed to save Peach according to Professor E. Gadd, Princess Shroob dressed herself up as Princess Peach. However, she was swallowed by Petey Piranha. The Mario Bros. and their younger selves defeated Petey Piranha, and Princess Shroob, disguised as Peach, was brought to the present by the brothers. E. Gadd told the fake princess to take a rest. However, while she was doing so, Bowser came and kidnapped her, believing that she was Peach. The Mario Bros. and Bowser only found out the true identity of Princess Shroob when they were all sucked into the Shroob Mother Ship in the past. During all this time, the real Peach was still in Shroob Castle.

When Mario and Luigi got to Shroob Castle, they saw Peach, but Princess Shroob interrupted their conversation at the point where Peach was going to explain why the Cobalt Star should not be completed and a battle begins. After it, Baby Bowser reunited the Cobalt Star Shards all together, making Elder Princess Shroob appear and giving her back all her power. After the battle, Peach and the others return to the present.

In the third installment of the Mario & Luigi series, the Mushroom Kingdom's citizens fall victim to a mysterious disease known as the Blorbs. Upon hearing this news, Peach proceeds to hold a very important meeting in her castle to discuss the matter at hand (along with Starlow, who explains further about the disease itself). Unfortunately, as Peach was proceeding to give said details, Bowser crashes the meeting... twice. Upon being knocked out by Mario, he was ejected by Peach (with the help of Starlow) the first time. But Bowser managed to return to the castle the second time, but under the control of Fawful, via eating a Vacuum Shroom. As a result, Bowser inhales everyone at the meeting, including Peach.

Peach is found by Mario and Luigi in the Flab Zone of Bowser's body. Their reunion is cut short, however, when a group of Beta Kretinscaptures her and takes her deeper into the area. When the brothers catch up and free Peach, the Kretins attack and are subsequently defeated. After the said ordeal was over, Peach, along with Mario, Luigi, and Starlow, overhear Fawful conversing with Bowser about taking the princess from his body. After which, Peach theorizes that Fawful's real plan is to take over the Mushroom Kingdom by using an ancient artifact known as the Dark Star, hidden beneath Toad Town. She also informs them that she is the only one who can release the seal on the Dark Star's power. However, after relaying said information to the two about the impending danger, Fawful quickly captures her through the use of an odd invention that enables him to reach into Bowser's body with a hand-shaped beam and then takes her to her own castle (which was also under Fawful's control at the time).

Upon Mario, Luigi, and Bowser finally countering the sources of the "blorbs" threat, along with defeating the Dark Star itself for good, everything in the Mushroom Kingdom returns to normal and Peach is rescued at last. She also manages to regain consciousness as well (from being knocked out after Fawful removed her much earlier in the game) after being awakened by Bowser ejecting the remaining inhabitants of Bowser's body. Though Bowser attacked the Mario Bros. and still attempted to kidnap Peach directly after the Dark Star was defeated, Peach still expressed her gratitude toward Bowser for his role in saving the world by sending him a cake.

In Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toadsworth travel to Pi'illo Island for a vacation they were invited to. After arriving at Pi'illo Castle and watching a brief presentation on the history of the island, Peach begins searching the presentation room at the mention of Pi'illo Castle's hidden treasure. After being implored to stop being so reckless by Toadsworth when she steps on the nearby platform, they both accidentally cause it to blast deeper into the castle.

Peach is eventually found with Toadsworth in the same room the immobilized Prince Dreambert rests, surrounded by Smoldergeist. Mario and Luigi's arrival causes the Smoldergeist to flee, only for them to return later to attack the Bros. The group end up entering the collection room after escaping the depths of Pi'illo Castle, where Luigi takes a nap on Dreambert and a bed put on display, which creates a Dream Portal that sucks Peach into the Dream World.

She is later found in Dreamy Pi'illo Castle getting carried by the kidnapper who is revealed to be Antasma, who manages to escape the pursuing Mario and Luigi by creating a temporary path to Dream's Deep. After Mario and Luigi find access to Dream's Deep through exploring Mushrise Park and later Dreamy Mushrise Park, she and Antasma are found there. After Bowser's arrival, Mario, Luigi and Peach are all felled by Bowser's power upped flames and left there, but are rescued by Eldream who takes them back to the Real World. Eventually, Peach heads back to Pi'illo Castle with several Toads.

At some point afterwards, Peach is secretly kidnapped by Kamek, who pretends to be her until he exposes his identity to Mario and Luigi in Dreamy Driftwood Shore. She is held captive in Neo Bowser Castle from then on until Mario and Luigi's arrival at the castle's outdoor area, where a Paratroopa is holding her and eventually takes her to the balcony of the castle. She is later found in a cage, and assists in the destruction of the Dream Stone when Bowser tries to destroy the Bros. with it.

After Mario and Luigi defeat Bowser as Dreamy Bowser, the Bros., Starlow, Dreambert and Peach barely manage to escape on the Zeekeeper and safely return to the castle, where they finally begin their vacation.

Peach is one of a few technique captains in Mario Superstar Baseball. She has one of the best pitching and catching skills. She can also make home-runs at times even though she is not as strong as other captains. Her special pitch is the Heart Ball. In the Challenge Mode, Peach learns it by purchasing the Lovely Heart item. She is the Team Captain for the Peach Monarchs (consisting of several Toads,Toadsworth, Toadette and Princess Daisy as sub-captain). In the Exhibition Mode, alternate names for Peach's team include the Peach RosesPeach Dynasties or Peach Princesses.

For the Challenge Mode section of Mario Superstar Baseball, Peach is one of the playable captains that the player can choose when she answers a challenge from Bowser to compete against his team. In order to advance, Peach has to go against the other captains working toward the same goal. Upon meeting certain criteria during matches, the opposing team that Peach's team was victorious against is now able to join hers. At some certain points she has to answer a challenge from Bowser Jr.. Peach makes a reappearance in Mario Super Sluggers as one of the Team Captains. Although Peach presides over the Baseball Kingdom, she also participates in the baseball games themselves (as seen in the game's overall opening). Her home stadium is the Peach Ice Garden, which has the appearance of an ice palace; it can be played in both daytime and nighttime setting. Outside the rink is a rose and flower garden. Peach is once again good at pitching and fielding.

As the story unfolds for Mario Super Sluggers' Challenge Mode, Bowser and Bowser Jr. invade the Baseball Kingdom, threatening to take it over. During the course of gameplay for this mode, Peach is one of the five captains the player can adventure around with, but she first has to be rescued from Bowser Jr. in the Peach Ice Garden. Upon being added to the Challenge Mode roster after completing said case involving Peach, she has a unique talent to aid in exploration around stadiums using her well-known heart trademark, resembling her overall personality. Also at that point, she is able to assist in finding the other required Team Players to make up her team, the Peach Monarchs.

The icon for the Peach Monarchs team includes a sparkling heart with Peach's brooch in the middle, and has a crown on top. Super Princess Peach marked a change of roles in the Mario series - it was Princess Peach's turn to save Mario and Luigi from King Bowser. With the aid of a talking umbrella named Perry - who was an amnesiac and therefore possessed a mysterious past - Peach travels to Vibe Island, where Bowser moves his operations in order to obtain the Vibe Scepter. However, the Goomba who brought it to him had been affected by its magic, and with a calm, playful attitude, he uses the scepter on the entire island, thereby creating chaos.

With this, Peach is capable of using four Vibe Techniques to help her through the areas. Princess Peach also was capable of floating for a short period of time like she was in Super Mario Bros. 2 (and subsequently, the Super Smash Bros. series), only this time she used Perry to hold her aloft rather than her dress. This ability is avaiable on Toad's shop, and costs 100 coins.

Eventually, Peach fight her way through the island's many hazards and rescues Mario, Luigi and many Toads. Perry also become less amnesiac as time went on, eventually recovering his memory. After Peach rescues Mario, he picks her up into his arms and gives her some flowers. Then everyone heads home together.  Peach is a Playmaker captain in the Mario Strikers games. In Super Mario Strikers, her Super Strike is the Royal Strike.

In Mario Strikers Charged, she is a playmaker captain again. Unlike in the previous game, she has a different play style. She is the most agile and her passing is the fastest. As a trade-off, her shooting ability and tackling strength is the weakest. Her deke involves her jumping a short distance, avoiding any possible body checks and even allowing her to jump over obstacles and goalies. Her Super Abilityis Freeze Frame!. When Peach initiates her Super Ability in Mario Strikers Charged, cameras flock in and start to take pictures of her and traps any opponents in picture frames. Cameras were also seen taking pictures of Peach during her ground entrance and on certain occasions when she is celebrating after scoring a goal for her team. When Peach executes her Mega Strike, she turns into an angelic creature with wings, prior to knocking the ball down toward the goalie. Her number is 10 and her uniform colors are pink and blue. Peach's mission level is to defeat Daisy for the Star Cup. She is also the opponent of Bowser in his mission mode. Her theme song is a techno inspired tune. In Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Peach is a technical character. She excels in shooting the ball at a distance. Her special shot is the Heart Shot. To execute it, Peach starts by dribbling out the shape of a triangle. As she spins and flips a sea of hearts appear. The hearts lift Peach and the ball into the air. After one spin she blows a kiss and the ball, followed by the hearts fly into the net. The hearts then form a large heart from a bunch of small ones around the hoop. Peach's home turf is the Peach Field. An alternative outfit can be unlocked for her, by beating the Mushroom Cup as her. The outfit is her tennis attire.

Mario & Sonic series

Peach also appears Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, the first crossover sports installment featuring characters from both the Mario and Sonic universes competing in Olympic events. In this installment, Peach is classified as a skill character sporting excellent ratings in events such as the track, archery, skeet, and aquatics. She has the highest level of skill of all female characters but the lowest power. Peach is also one of the fastest characters. Peach uses her heart abilities again in the Dream Events for this game. In Dream Fencing, Peach charges up and releases a huge pink heart. When the heart hits her opponent it explodes into smaller hearts. It has a very long range and Peach does not have to be close to her opponents. In Dream Table Tennis, Peach can make the ball disappear making it difficult to find. When she unleashes her shot, she spins around in a sea of hearts and then hits the ball.

When she unleashes her shot, she spins around in a sea of hearts and then hits the ball. Peach reappears in the Mario & Sonic series as a Skill-type character in the follow-up to the original,Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, and a costume of her a Mii can wear can be bought from the in-game store. Like the other female participants in this game, Peach wears a winter outfit that corresponds with and matches the overall theme of the Winter Olympic events. In the Wii version of the game, Peach has a very high Skill stat, with average Acceleration, slightly lower Power and an incredibly low Speed. In the DS version, Peach has high Jumping and Technique stats, average Speed and slightly lower Power and Stamina. Peach's special abilities include the Mid-Air Float ability (for both versions) and the Princess Dash ability, exclusive to the DS version.

In the DS version's Adventure Tours story, Peach initially goes to Sparkleton to peek at the snow festival, and upon Mario and Sonic finding her, she is challenged by Mario to the Snow Machine Fightdream event, and is defeated, joining the group afterwards. She later competes in the Snow Machine Fight dream event again for the sake of a Goomba who wants to see how good she is. After winning the event, she receives a Shooting Rifle the Goomba obtained from Bowser that allows the group to compete in games that include shooting. Once the group returns to Frostown and encounters the unhappy Thwomp there, Peach cheers up the Thwomp and gets it to move, allowing everyone to now access the area at the end of the newly opened path. 

Peach reappears in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games as a Skill type character, and she once again has a costume a Mii can wear to alter their stats, which must be unlocked to do so. Peach's horse in the Equestrian events is a white horse with pink hair and tail, and she also gains a new outfit for the Gymnastics and Swimming events, as well as retaining her outfit from the first game for the other featured events in this game. In the Wii version, Peach has a very high Technique stat, high Acceleration and Stamina, above average Max Speed and below average Power.

In the 3DS version, Peach is part of the Girls group, and is mainly encountered during the Story Mode of the game during their stories. Like most of the other characters, she plays a vital part in the clearing of the fog Bowser and Eggman spread over London.

Prior to when London becomes shrouded in fog, Peach is seen voluntarily working with Amy, Blaze and a group of Toads to prepare invitations for the Olympics. When Daisy appears and nearly coaxes Amy into following her down-town for some shopping, but is stopped by Peach, who chooses to decide whether they all work on the invitations or take a break over an event between her and Daisy. Peach manages to win, but they go out for a brief break anyway, to find the invitations scattered by the wind when they return, having to collect them all and re-do Bowser and Eggman's lost invitations because of this.

Afterwards, Peach and Amy end up encountering Bowser and Eggman while taking a break, who both complain about when they'll receive their invitations. Amy suggests that whether they go home quietly and wait or get their invitations should be decided over an event between them. Despite winning, Peach and Amy decide to give Bowser and Eggman their invitations, and head back to where they were working to get them. Two Toads end up getting stopped by the two while mailing them out, and flee in fear, leaving behind both Bowser and Eggman's invitations, both of them confiscating the letters under the assumption they're love letters. Peach and Amy return without the invitations, to see they've both left, thus assuming they already found their invitations and left peacefully.

When the fog begins to cover London, alongside Blaze, Peach is first seen fending off a horde of foggy clones of Daisy and Amy, who are challenged to an event by a pair of them. After Peach and Blaze defeat them, they end up spotting Daisy and Amy sprawled across the nearby ground, approaching them as they wake up.

Later on, after one of the Toads accompanying the girls mention seeing as suspicious character, the group encounters Rouge, who promises to let them out of the fog if she is defeated in an Olympic event. Peach volunteers to challenge Rouge, and manages to defeat her, Blaze destroying the nearby fog machine afterwards. Mario and Luigi arrive shortly after to check on the group, and they learn Eggman may be the one causing this, and was at the British Museum. As the Bros. head off to confront Eggman, Peach and the rest of the group choose to stay behind to take care of Hyde Park. 

Peach appears once again in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, once again as a Skill-type character. She has a high technique stat, as well as above average acceleration, max speed, and stamina, but low power. In this game, she shares special animations with Mario, demonstrating their relationship.

Peach is also in Peach, along other Mario series characters and several characters from the Dragon Quest series, appeared in the game Itadaki Street DS. In that game her castle was also a playable stage.

Peach also appears in Fortune Street, as an unlockable character, unlocked by placing first or second on the Peach's Castle board in Tour Mode.

Peach appears in Mario Sports Mix as one of the Technical characters for the game. She has a high technique stat and average speed, but her power stat is very low. Like Mario Hoops 3-on-3, her home court is her castle which is compatible with the four featured sports (basketball, volleyball, hockey, and dodgeball). Her special move in this game involves releasing four large hearts that will stun characters of the opposing team upon their contact with them. 

Character description 

Peach is a human with sky-blue eyes and golden-blonde hair. She is portrayed to be a capable character, but usually excels in skill level over other characters in most activities.

Peach has a tall height in terms of other characters. She is taller than characters like Luigi and Daisy, but she is shorter than characters such as Rosalina and Waluigi. Peach has a similar body type to Daisy's, but her waist is more elongated, and her frame is unique in comparison. Peach's skin is fair in complexion. She has a pert, pointed, sharp nose with a curved stem. Peach is commonly depicted with a 

She has a very thick, flowy, long hairstyle; flipped, fringed bangs with wavy layers are included. Her hair consists of four, small, flipped pieces, which reach above shoulder-length. Peach's bangs are soft as well as heart-shaped, and they have one large part at the top shaping down the center of her forehead. Peach's hairstyle also has long, split, ear-tails that shape her face.puffy smile, and she has round, pink lipstick. Her eyebrows are a dark shade of her blonde hair, and they're thin as well as small. She has very oval, deep-set eyes. They are smaller than Daisy's, but are still large. Peach's eyes have multiple, thin lashes, and consist of light cyan tones. Peach's face is describable as oval, soft and pointed.

Peach's hair is best described as golden. Her hair is always a golden shade and she is well known for her status as a blonde. She sometimes wears her hair tied up in a ponytail. Peach is the only princess who ties her hair back, considering its long length; her ponytail hairstyle is mostly seen in the sports category of the Mario series' spinoff installments execpt for her group artwork from the GameCube version of NBA Street V3, though it made its debut in Super Mario Sunshine, where it was her preferred hairstyle due to the heat of Isle Delfino. Peach usually wears a floor-length pink gown with white evening gloves beyond elbow-length. Peach's gown has puffy sleeves and an up-turned collar is also included. At Peach's waist are two deep pink panniers, used to accent the gown's frame. At the bottom of the gown is a deep pink ruffle, completed with deep pink high heels. Peach also wears a sapphire brooch, set in gold. Included in the set is a pair of round sapphire earrings, and rubies and sapphires are on her crown; Peach's crown is golden with four jewels: two rubies and two sapphires. She also wears a white petticoat under her gown, though this is omitted in some games. 

Alternate outfits

When the dedicated Mario sports installments started with Mario Golf and Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64, Peach's sports uniform was her same classic gown, except it was shorter and she was not wearing gloves. Additionally, she was wearing white knee-highs as well as orange-and-beige tennis shoes as well for that outfit. However, when the GameCube Mario sports installments came around, Peach started to have more variety in her sports attire. For Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Peach wore a sporty miniskirt to match the theme of her current main gown (Peach's miniskirt can also be unlocked as an alternate costume in the later games Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Mario Sports Mix). In the case of other primary Mario sports installments that required Peach to be more active, she wears an outfit which has the same design as the outfit Princess Daisy had worn in previous installments where Peach had the miniskirt. The outfit in question includes a pink tank top and pink shorts, as well as the white bobby socks and red-and-pink tennis shoes from the miniskirt. The tank top has white-rimmed arms, and the shorts have white rims at the legs, and two white curved lines running from the side seams to the front waist. Peach's two-piece sports attire was first seen overall in her cameo appearance for the GameCube version of NBA Street V3, and has since become her primary athletic outfit, while her miniskirt became known as "Tennis Wear".

As always, both modern sports outfits that Peach wears for the majority of GameCube, Wii, DS, and 3DS Mario sports installments included Peach's obligatory elements that match her persona.

Soccer uniforms

Motorbike gear For the Mario Strikers family of Mario sports installments, Peach wears soccer outfits to match the theme of the sport itself. For Super Mario Strikers, Peach wears a 2-piece soccer outfit which consists of a pink midriff-baring uniform with blue accents, as well as pink-and-blue cleats. Later on in Mario Strikers Charged, Peach now wears pink midriff-baring armor; this is due to the increased intensity of the game. Aside from the increased amount of protective equipment, the outfit includes crown patterns along with blue-and-yellow accents. Peach is one of the few characters who doesn't have to change uniform colors when away.

Winter wearIn Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8, Peach gains a new outfit when riding motorbikes. The jumpsuit is white with pink vertical lines going down Peach's arms and legs. Her accessories include a pink scarf, a pink belt with a white buckle, pink boots, and pink gloves. Along with that accompanies her traditional jewelry. There is also a heart-shaped pattern on her back. Daisy and Rosalina also have a similar outfit design like Peach's, but with different color schemes as a result to match their respective themes and uniqueness.

Other female participants in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games wear winter clothing for this installment as well.Princess Daisy wears an outfit in the same fashion as Peach. The overall design of Daisy's outfit is similar to Peach's; however, differences include color scheme and the obligatory elements to match her unique persona.In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Peach wears a pink winter outfit that is exclusive to the game and matches the theme for the Winter Olympics. The outfit's contents include white winter gloves and ankle boots with pink lace. The outfit itself includes a purple shrug and purple leggings with a white line accenting each limb. Additionally, the core of the outfit is designed like a pink minidress with one white ring at the bottom. Peach's winter outfit still includes her standard jewelry including crown.

Peach wears this outfit once again like all other female participants in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for the Equestrian and Dream Equestrian events.

Rhythmic gymnastics/swimwear

In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Peach wears an outfit that's exclusive to the Rhythmic Gymnastics and Synchronized Swimming events. The outfit itself is a light pink leotard with dark pink stripes on the sides, and like her other outfits her earrings, brooch, crown, and collar. However, unlike the other sports outfits that she wears, this one does not include shoes.

Like the previous installment, the other female participants in this game wear outfits like this as well for those targeted events; for example, Princess Daisy wears the same type of outfit like Peach during these events in the game.


In Super Mario Sunshine, the dress that Peach wears bears resemblance to Peach's current main gown. However, the color scheme difference for Peach's dress in the Super Mario Sunshine game is light rose with pink accents, and to match the setting, it does not include gloves or sleeves. She also wears a ruby ring and a gold bracelet.

In the Dr. Mario series, Peach wears pink nurse clothing with matching sandals.

In the three Super Smash Bros. games Peach is in, she wears a pink bouffant gown. In Melee, it had gold designs and a flounced red hem, but now, in Brawl and the new installment, it has many layers of overskirts, lace trim, pleats, and gold decorations.

Personality and traits

Princess Peach is classy, kind, clever, and adventurous. She often displays an unselfish and noble spirit and puts her friends ahead of herself. For example, in Super Paper Mario, Peach states she was taught to help others. She has been said to have a gentle demeanor but can be tough when the situation calls for it. Peach is also into sports and has been referred to in the Mario Party 5 official guide as being able to "play with the big boys". Besides sports, Peach is also into ball-room dancing and video games. Both Mario Super Sluggers andMario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story hint at Peach's enjoyment of gardening.

Throughout the games many aspects of Peach's personality is showed. Peach displayed her pure heart inSuper Paper Mario when she saved Mimi despite being picked on by her. Along with that, she can be naive and very strong-willed at times, but Peach is also wise and motherly. Peach seems to enjoy exploring and trying new things. Peach is also sweet and hospitable to others. An example of this is how she often bakes cakes for Mario. Also in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's story mode, Peach offered tea to Fox and Sheik in order to calm them down. Peach was the only one able to recruit Mr. Game and Watch, who didn’t have a concept of right and wrong. When Master Hand is defeated by Tabuu, she is the first to reach him attempting to check on him. Peach has often expressed loneliness without Mario and she also apologizes excessively for getting into trouble. Peach enjoys the company of others, as she has hosted parties in her castle in Paper Mario and had Baseball Kingdom constructed for all her friends. She generally has the personality of a polite lady though she can be competitive and playful. She still shows good sportsmanship in many appearances. Deep down inside it bothers her that she is a constant victim of kidnapping, as seen in Super Paper Mario, but she still is very grateful for what Mario and Luigi do.

Powers and abilities

Peach isn't a typical "damsel-in-distress." When held captive Peach either sneaks around to find out information, or sends useful items to Mario, normally in Super Mario Bros. 3, the Super Mario Galaxy games, and the Paper Mario series. Like other Mario characters, Peach can Jump, Ground Pound, and use slap attacks, which is her specialty. Besides these abilities Peach has many more; most of them deal with hearts and her parasol. Peach also has never been regarded as a physically strong person (in fact being the slowest person to pluck vegetables in Super Mario Bros. 2), but she makes up for it in technique and skill. With the release of Super Mario 3D World, Peach is able to use power-ups, such as the Fire Flower, the Tanooki Suit, the Cat Suit and the Double Cherry, and all of the  power-ups and items.

In spinoff installments for the Mario game series, Peach's abilities usually deal around hearts. They're mostly seen in the sports installments including, but not limited to Mario Power Tennis (Sweet Kiss Return) and Mario Hoops 3-on-3 (Heart Shot).

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars Peach is shown to have impressive healing abilities like Therapy and Group Hug. She is also shown to have telepathic powers like in Super Mario Advance 4 when she calls out to Mario as a hologram in Bowser's Castle and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door when she cheers on Mario (while being possessed by the Shadow Queen) along with the entire world and fully heals the party in a similar way to Group Hug. Peach can jump in the air and float using her dress. Princess Peach also has a parasol that helps her float or attack enemies. As shown in several games, she can pluck vegetables and hurl them at enemies. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Peach has a powerful special attack called the Peach Bomber.
