Peach Toadstool

First Appearance: Super Mario Bros, October 1985
Likes: Mario Bros, her subjects, cake
Dislikes: Bowser, being kidnapped, rudeness

Kind and gentle, yet strong-headed and brave, Princess Toadstool (Peach) is the ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom. She has great fashion sense and actually a pretty good cook! When she hasn’t been kidnapped (usually by Bowser), Peach oversees her people from the safety of her castle. A lot of people have been saying that Peach and Mario are “going at it”, if you know what I mean, and there is a lot of proof to back it up (Peach’s lines in Paper Mario for example). And can you blame them? Mario has been saving Peach for almost 20 years (FYI, Super Mario Bros. 20th anniversary is coming this October)! When she isn’t being kidnapped, she likes to throw parties and host tennis and golf tournaments!

But just because she’s a princess, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to fight! One of her most basic attacks is picking up Vegetables from the ground throwing them at enemies (she first showed this off in Super Mario Bros. 2)! She also uses her parasol and sometimes, even a frying pan! But what’s really unique about her is her ability to float in mid-air for a few seconds as she jumps! A most unique talent indeed, also first shown in Super Mario Bros. 2! Peach will also get to show her stuff in an upcoming DS game, Super Princess Peach! She may be a princess, but she’s one tough cookie!
