Princess Peach (Japanese: ピーチ姫 Pīchi-hime), often simply named Peach and originally Princess Toadstool, is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. Peach first appeared in Super Mario Bros.. She was created by Shigeru Miyamoto to be the damsel-in-distress throughout most Mario games. She resides in her castle along with many Toads. Her kingdom is often attacked by the Koopa Troopa, led by Bowser.
Creation and DevelopmentEdit
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 25 years. Peach is occasionally a key 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.
Peach's classic dress lacked panniers, had a sash of the panniers surrounding her waist, had short sleeves, and the bottom of the dress's border went up close to her sash. Peach’s looks have not changed as drastically as other females like Daisy and Pauline. It should be mentioned that Peach shares very similar character features with Rosalina. Peach has always been depicted as a blonde in video games. In official artwork by Nintendo, her hair has been blonde since the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros. 2 (a.k.a the Lost Levels); however, due to the graphical limitations of the NES hardware, her on-screen sprite in the earlier Super Mario Bros. games displayed her with brown hair or red hair and outlines. Presumably, this was the reason why Peach was depicted with red hair instead of blonde in the DiC Entertainment cartoons. This discrepancy was remedied in the SNES with Super Mario World, in which was she shown with her proper hair color.
Peach returns as a default character in Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up. She is a medium racer and her karts and bikes will follow a pale pink and yellow (and sometimes a darker pink) colour scheme.
She will do the following to each stat in whatever kart or bike she rides:
- Speed: +1
- Weight: +1
- Acceleration: +0
- Handling: +4
