Princess Peach Toadstool, or alternatively, Princess Peach, as she is often referred to, is the tritagonist of the Mario franchise and the titular main protagonist of the DS game, Super Princess Peach. She is the ruler of Mushroom Kingdom and best friend of the ruler of Sarasaland Kingdom, Princess Daisy. She was kidnapped by Bowser, Bowser Jr., and/or the Koopalings in nearly every main series Mario game.
She is safe once Bowser is defeated. She was the damsel-in-distress in nearly every Mario game. She 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 appearance.
She is voiced by Anya-Taylor Joy in the upcoming animated 2023 film.
Since her debut, Peach has appeared in installments related to the Mario game series for over 20 years. Peach is occasionally a key supporting character in mainstream games, and almost always playable in spin-off installments. Her most prominent appearance to date is as the heroine of Super Princess Peach.
Peach has appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series and is available in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable character.
She has appeared in all of the Mario & Sonic games to date.
She has also made appearances in the GameCube versions of NBA Street V3 and SSX on Tour.
In the DiC cartoons, she was voiced by Jeannie Elias in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, and by Tracey Moore in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, the latter of whom who also voiced Sailor Moon.
In video games, she is voiced by Kathy Fitzgerald in Mario is Missing!, Jocelyn Benford in Hotel Mario, Leslie Swan, Asako Kozuki, Jen Taylor, and Nicole Mills, in some Nintendo 64, GameCube, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS games, and currently Samantha Kelly since 2007's Mario Strikers Charged with the latter, the only exceptions being Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, and Mario Kart Arcade GP DX.
Peach's is generally known for being sweet, graceful, calm, and well-mannered. Usually, she never shows aggressiveness when she fights or confronts her enemies. Peach is also willing to have Bowser team up with her and the Mario Bros. when a bigger evil attacks the Mushroom Kingdom. She's also very friendly towards Luigi, despite not interacting with him as much as Mario. As seen in Super Mario Odyssey, Peach loves to travel and dress up. Peach also enjoys gardening and ballroom dancing. Peach's femininity is always played up, and she's often contrasted with the tomboyish Daisy. But Peach is quite a tomboy too as has just as much interest and is as good in sports as Daisy, or any of the guys, and doesn't hesitate to get rough and tumble with any of them, and she always loves playing video games, which would mean she is a bit of a tomboy princess, but not as much as Daisy.
Peach is always shown to be relaxed, gentle, noble, regal and proud. Peach is friendly and kind to almost everyone she meets caring for her friends and enemies. In every fight she always shows respect and dignity. She is also prim, proper and prissy without being stuck up, snobbish and snooty. Peach is also well organized making sure she always looks her best there is nothing out of place in her castle or kingdom. Aside from being calm and relaxed she is always happy and cheerful but is not hyper with her cheerfulness like Daisy is. Despite her royal status she doesn't let that stop her from having playing or getting her hands dirty.
Peach is a young woman with yellow hair and blue eyes. She usually wears a pink ballgown with a blue chest. She wears blue round earrings and a golden crown with red and cyan jewels. She wears pink shoes and long white gloves.
In athletics, Peach ties her hair into a ponytail with a blue hairband, and wears a short pink sport clothing with pink shorts. She wears white socks and pink shoes. In golf and tennis, she wears a short pink dress. In Mario Golf: Super Rush, she wears a pink t-shirt and a light pinkish-skirt. As Fire Peach, she still wears her hair into a ponytail, except the hairband is red instead of blue. Her dress turns white and red and her shoes turn to red.
In the Super Smash Bros. series, Peach looks slightly different from how she appears in the Mario series. She looks anatomically realistic, as her head is a bit smaller and she is slightly taller than she normally is in the Mario series. Her dress, gloves and crown are all more ornate in design than in the Mario series.

After Mario and Luigi fix it, a green fairy-like Sprixie princess appears and tells them that Bowser has kidnapped and trapped the rest of the Sprixie princesses in jars. However, they then witness him arrive through the pipe and capture her in a jar before escaping through it. Peach is the first one to jump into the pipe after them, with Mario quickly going in after her and the other two following suit. They find themselves in a realm known as "The Sprixie Kingdom" and set off to find the Sprixies. Throughout the game, she can be selected to play with on any of the levels and can use all the same usual power-up items as Mario, Luigi and Toad, as well as the new Super Bell, which allows them to don a Cat Suit that allows them to utilize new cat-like abilities, namely running faster on all fours, performing unique scratch attacks, and climbing up walls to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

After they make their way through all the amusement park levels, defeat his minions and reach him in his fortress, Bowser uses the Super Bell to transform into a cat form called Meowser. The group proceeds to climb the tallest tower by utilizing the Super Bell and defeat Meowser. The heroes then say goodbye to the freed Sprixies and travel home through the pipe back to the Mushroom Kingdom. After the end credits, the Sprixies build a rocket ship in World 1 so that when they return, they can play extra levels in outer space and collect more Green Stars.
Super Mario Odyssey
Peach is once again kidnapped by Bowser, but this time, Bowser tries to marry her and arranges a big, extravagant wedding by travelling to various kingdoms and having a group of andromorphic rabbits that he's hired named the Broodals steal various prized accessories for it. Peach spends most of the game on his airship along with Cappy's younger sister Tiara, whom Bowser also kidnapped as the very first accessory for the wedding, which is why Cappy, one of the Cap Kingdom's sentient hat-like creatures called Bonneters, decides to team up with and help Mario to save them.
Shortly after their journey begins, Mario and Cappy recover an airship called the Odyssey. Eventually, after travelling through various kingdoms and solving various problems along the way, they catch up to them on the Moon's surface cathedral where Bowser is holding the wedding. Inside, they find Peach struggling with Bowser over a giant ring that he's trying to put on her. The two of them battle Bowser in the Moon's interior while Peach can only watch. Bowser is defeated and Mario frees Peach and Tiara, but the cavern begins to collapse. However, Mario uses Cappy's capture ability to take control of an unconscious Bowser and escapes to the surface with Peach and Tiara using his strength and endurance. After Peach thanks Mario for his help, Bowser regains consciousness and decides to properly propose to Peach, causing Mario to do the same in haste. Overwhelmed, Peach turns down their proposals as she, Cappy, and Tiara board the Odyssey. The rivals are both heartbroken until Peach tells Mario to come home with her. Mario boards the ship just in time, leaving Bowser stranded on the moon.
In the aftermath, Mario quickly finds out from the Toads at her castle that she has suddenly disappeared again and are panicking, likely because they assume that she's already been kidnapped again. However, when he and Cappy resume their travels, they quickly discover that Peach and Tiara are simply travelling to all of the different kingdoms on their own accord as a vacation since they couldn't enjoy them the first time. Peach can be found in every kingdom in a specific location, and is often dressed in a very specific manner that's appropriate for the climate of that respective kingdom. If Mario speaks to her, she'll compliment the kingdom for the unique pleasures it has to offer and give Mario a Power Moon that she found. If she is found and spoken to in very kingdom, she will return to the Mushroom Kingdom, where she can be found on the castle balcony and give Mario one more Power Moon. At this point, she will have also invited residents of the other kingdoms to visit the Mushroom Kingdom so that the Toads can converse with them and learn more about the places they come from, while in turn, the residents of the other kingdoms can learn more about the Mushroom Kingdom from them.
