Appearance[change | change source]

Princess Peach's looks are different than what they used to be. In her first game, Super Mario Bros. (1985), she had red hair and her dress was white. She had dark red hair in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1986). In Super Mario World (1991), her looks changed. She now had yellow hair and a pink dress. In the Mario sport series games, she wears different dresses because she cannot play well in her normal, long, pink dress. In the Super Smash Bros. games, Peach wears pink bloomers.

Her name has changed over the years. In Japan, her name was always Peach. When Nintendo sold Super Mario Bros. in other countries, she was called Princess Toadstool. In Super Mario 64, her name became Princess Peach Toadstool.

Peach appears most often as the damsel-in-distress – always being kidnapped by Bowser. Mario must always rescue her. In Super Princess Peach (2006), the tables are turned and Bowser kidnaps Mario instead. Peach must then rescue Mario. As depicted in the game, Peach uses a parasol named Perry to defeat enemies. In the Super Smash Bros. games, Peach is 1 of the fighters. In the game series, Peach uses her butt against the opponents. This attack is called Peach Bomber. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Peach's Peach Bomber was accompanied with fire. In later Super Smash Bros. games, it was accompanied with hearts. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Peach is accompanied with Daisy, who is an Echo Fighter.

Peach has been voiced by 3 different actresses. The first was Leslie Swan. The second was Jen Taylor. The third was Samantha Kelly.
