|Debut title||Super Mario Bros.|
|System of origin||Nintendo Entertainment System|
|Year of debut||1985|
Princess Peach (Japanese: ピーチ姫 Pīchi-hime) is a major protagonist of the Super Mario series. A veteran to the Super Smash Bros. series since Super Smash Bros. Melee, Peach returns once more in Super Smash Bros. Strife.
Peach is voiced by Samantha Kelly.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4 Edit
Peach now has her traditional sporting outfit as an alternate costume, with addition recolours of that.
Peach's alternate costume has several modified animations, to compensate for the lack of her dress.
The duration for which opponents sleep during Peach Blossom is now determined by their proximity to Peach.
With her parasol open, Peach falls at a slightly slower rate.
Peach Bomber now has Peach fly a further distance.
Peach Bomber deals slightly more damage.
Peach Blossom now spawns four peaches as opposed to three. This brings the total amount of damage that Peach can recover from 60% → 72%.
Peach sprints at a slightly faster speed (1.4175 → 1.45).
Peach has slightly better traction (0.068 → 0.069).
Peach Bomber's knockback has been reduced.
Peach's Toad attack has more ending lag
The amount of damage healed by the peaches spawned from Peach Blossom is slightly less (20% → 18%).
Princess Peach, despite being a princess, is the sole active ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom. She, alongside her Toad retainers, lives in a large castle often centred in or near Toad Town.
Bowser, the king of the Koopa Troop, often kidnaps Princess Peach, setting in motion many of the Super Mario video games.
Peach is often considered to be one of the first major female protagonists in video games, and has since become the most recurring female character in video game history. Despite this, Peach has only starred by herself in a single title: the 2005 Nintendo DS title Super Princess Peach.
|Neutral Special Move||Toad||Peach holds a Toad out in front of her that will throw spores at opponents when hit.|
|Custom Variants||Sleepy Toad||Spores put grounded opponents to sleep and launches airborne ones.|
|Grumpy Toad||Toad always releases spores, but they do less damage.|
|Fire Spores||Toad releases spores that deal fire damage, but the start-up time is longer.|
|Side Special Move||Peach Bomber||Peach jumps forwards and bashes opponents with her hip.|
|Custom Variants||Flower Bomber||Peach jumps forwards quicker and leaves flowers on the heads of opponents she hits; however the move has significant ending lag.|
|Flying Bomber||Peach jumps high into the air and deals more damage, but the attack harder to hit.|
|Peach Cut||Peach doesn't jump as far sideways, but the attack cuts through opponents, dealing more damage and less knockback.|
|Up Special Move||Peach Parasol||Peach jumps into the air, hurting opponents with her closed parasol, before opening it and slowly falling down.|
|Custom Variants||High Jump||Peach jumps higher into the air, but does not open her parasol, thus making her harder to control whilst airborne.|
|Light Parasol||Peach jumps lower but opening the parasol gives her a slight upwards boost. One can open and close the parasol up to seven times to get seven consecutive boosts.|
|Windy Parasol||Peach travels upwards in an arc. The parasol itself does not deal damage, but closing the parasol pushes all nearby opponents away.|
|Down Special Move||Vegetable||Peach plucks a vegetable from the ground. The damage done by the vegetable when thrown at opponents is dependant on its face. It is possible, though rare, to pluck other items from the ground including Mr. Saturn and Bob-Ombs.|
|Custom Variants||Slow Vegetable||The vegetables travel slower and travel towards Peach after being thrown at an enemy, but can only be used twice in a row. Additionally, the vegetables deal slightly less damage.|
|Heavy Vegetable||The vegetable is larger and deals more damage and knockback. However, it takes Peach longer to pluck it and it does not travel as far.|
|Lucky Vegetable||The chances of getting a Bob-Omb or Mr. Saturn are drastically increased, but Peach can only pluck the weakest vegetable (the smiling one).|
|Final Smash||Peach Blossom||Peach performs a dance to a sped up remix of the Coin Heaven theme from Super Mario Bros. 3. This puts all nearby opponents to sleep and drops three large peaches onto the stage that can be used to heal.|
|Up taunt||Takes her parasol and lifts it above her head while spinning it around. While doing so, she says "Sweet!".|
|Side taunt||Swings her arm out and puts it behind her, saying "Peachy!". In Super Smash Bros. 4, this was one of her victory poses.|
|Down taunt||Spins around before posing and winking, saying "Uh-huh!".|
On-Screen Appearance Edit
Peach appears out of a flurry of hearts, before lifting her parasol over her shoulder and says "Hi!".
Victory Fanfare Edit
Unlike in previous games, Peach does not share a victory fanfare with the other members of her series. Instead, Peach's victory fan fare is now a classical remix of an excerpt of the Super Mario Bros. 2 overworld theme.
This fanfare is shared with Daisy.
Victory Poses Edit
Two of Peach's victory poses are reused from Super Smash Bros. 4.
- Spins and waves towards the screen, saying "Oh, did I win?".
- Spins as hearts surround her, poses, then says "This is fun!".
- Claps twice as a heart flashes behind her hands before spinning around and waving her hand as she says "Nice!".
