Peach's Peril is the 19th event match of 51 in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

In Peach's Peril, the player controls Mario and has exactly one minute to prevent Peach from getting KO'd by a larger than normal Bowser. Peach will walk back and forth on Final Destination, and does not attack Bowser at all. The only thing she will do is use her Peach Parasol attack to get back on to the stage.

Since Bowser will mostly focus his attacks on Peach, the player can use this to their advantage, such as by exploiting the lag of his attacks from attacking Peach. The player is able to KO Bowser, but each time the player succeeds in doing so, Bowser will respawn.

To successfully complete the event, both the player and Peach must survive the whole minute. If the player or Peach are KO'd at any time, the match ends in failure. The high score for the event is based on the number of times the player is able to KO Bowser.

During the battle, the music for Princess Peach's Castle plays.


  • This event match is a homage to the Super Mario Bros. series, where Bowser almost always kidnaps Peach and Mario has to rescue her.
