Article on Super Mario Wiki Princess Daisy

Princess Daisy (デイジー姫, Princess Daisy) is a recurring character in the Mario series. Originally appearing in Super Mario Land, Daisy is the ruler of Sarasaland and has become a recurring playable character in several Mario spin-off games since her debut, most notably the Mario Party and Mario Kart series. However, she would also be playable in recent mainstream Mario games, most notably Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

Princess Daisy is the ruler of Sarasaland, a country that is composed of four kingdoms: the deserted Birabuto Kingdom, the oceanic UFO hotspot Muda Kingdom, the Moai head-littered Easton Kingdom, and the China-esque Chai Kingdom, all located very far away from the Mushroom Kingdom. One day, a mysterious space alien named Tatanga invades Sarasaland. In addition to hypnotizing all the country's inhabitants to enslave them into his army, Tatanga kidnaps Daisy in order to marry her and make her his queen, thus setting the events of Super Mario Land into motion.

Upon hearing of this, Mario journeys to Sarasaland to rescue Daisy and bring peace to the country by traveling through each of its four kingdoms in order to stop Tatanga and his invasion. Throughout the game, enemies disguise themselves as Daisy to trick Mario into believing he has rescued her, only to reveal their deception seconds afterward and run away. Although Tatanga ultimately manages to escape, Daisy is rescued regardless and Sarasaland returns to peace, resulting in Daisy thanking Mario with a kiss as she flies away with him in an airplane.

After a short hiatus, with only a cameo in NES Open Tournament Golf and a character bearing her name in the 1993 Super Mario Bros. live action movie, Daisy made a return to the series in Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64. Since then she has gone on to appear in many Mario titles, albeit almost entirely spin-offs such as the Mario Party and Mario Kart series. Mario Party 4 specifically is notable for redesigning Daisy into her modern look, including shorter hair in a flipped bob cut, a golden crown in place of her magenta crown, orange elements on her dress in place of white elements, and a fairer skin tone—though her skin would eventually regain its tan starting in Mario Party Superstars. However Super Mario Run marked Daisy's return to the Super Mario series almost 30 years after her debut in Super Mario Land. In this game, Daisy is an unlockable character as of version 3.0.4. When the Remix 10 Warp Pipe opens, Toad informs Mario that she has gotten lost and thus needs to be rescued. Daisy is unlocked once Area 30 is cleared during Remix 10 mode, and her special ability is the Double Jump (which works very much like the double jump that can be universally performed in Smash Bros.). She also appears as a playable character in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, where she is available right from the start. In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Daisy has no unique gameplay traits of her own and controls identically to all other characters (with the exception of the Yoshis and Nabbit).

In addition to her initial design being strikingly similar to Princess Peach's, NES Open Tournament Golf furthered the notion of Daisy being a counterpart to Peach by having her as Luigi's caddie. Daisy and Luigi's relationship has since progressed into a reciprocal, yet subtle romance that has been demonstrated in numerous instances, such as her victory scene in Mario Power Tennis; her personal race course in Mario Kart Wii; and her trophy information in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Daisy has also forged a close friendship with Peach upon traveling to the Mushroom Kingdom,[1] and has remained a friend of Mario's ever since their first encounter.

Unlike Peach, however, Daisy is an energetic tomboy.[2] Despite being featured almost exclusively in spin-off games with little to no plot or dialogue since her debut, Daisy's personality has nevertheless been explored to a degree. In particular, Fortune Street reveals that Daisy is energetic to the point of being impulsive, eager to take on challenges, and brash enough to talk down to the likes of Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser, though also in touch with her feminine side, finding enjoyment from activities such as tea parties and nail painting.

In Mario Tennis, Daisy was voiced by the late Kate Fleming, sounding significantly lower-pitched compared to later games. Then in Mario Party 3 and the two subsequent games in the Mario Party series, Jen Taylor, Peach and Toad's voice actress at the time of the game's release, voiced Daisy as well with a higher-pitched voice. Starting with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour for the Nintendo GameCube, Deanna Mustard took over Taylor's role, giving Daisy her now-signature middle-high-pitched, loud voice. Super Mario Bros. Wonder for Nintendo Switch replaced Princess Daisy's longtime voice actress Deanna Mustard with Giselle Fernandez, a voice actor who imitates Mustard's distinctive Daisy voice.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Unlike most alternate costumes, which either recolor an attire or add minor embellishments, Peach's Daisy-inspired costume both recolors and modifies several other aspects of her design.

Daisy appears as a trophy. She is also the basis for one of Peach's alternate costumes, which changes many aspects of the latter's appearance to match Daisy's, to the point where said costume in question is essentially Peach dressed up as Daisy. Both Daisy's trophy and Peach's Daisy-based alternate costume are based on Daisy's classic design, which was used between Super Mario Land and Mario Party 3.

The princess of Sarasa-land[sic], Daisy met Mario when he helped defeat the evil alien Tatanga in Super Mario Land. Princess Daisy is a bit of a tomboy when compared with her counterpart, Princess Peach. After her appearance in Mario Golf, some gossips started portraying her as Luigi's answer to Mario's Peach.

Daisy's trophy glitch.

Notably, Daisy's trophy has a graphical glitch in which she has a third eye on the back of her head under her hair. This glitch was removed in the NTSC 1.02 and PAL versions.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Daisy once again appears as a trophy, this one depicting her athletic gear from Mario Strikers Charged; she also appears on two stickers. Daisy is once again the basis for one of Peach's costumes; however, unlike in Melee, no model elements are changed for this costume and it is a simple recolor. Also, Peach's Daisy-based alternate costume is based on the colors of Daisy's current appearance since Mario Party 4.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Daisy appears as four trophies in these games, with one exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS depicting her tennis outfit, and three being exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U depicting her standard and baseball outfits (unlocked by hitting Sandbag 1,000m (3,280 ft.) or more in Home-Run Contest), as well as her baby self. Daisy continues to be the basis for one of Peach's costumes.

More notably, Daisy's baseball appearance appears in Smash Tour as a red item. A player who uses it will automatically catch all thrown items for the duration of a battle.


Daisy (Tennis Outfit)
NTSC Similar to Peach in how she plays tennis, Daisy also packs a seriously powerful shot. Maybe their choice of colors symbolizes their personalities? They're alike in a lot of ways, but if you could choose just one, would you choose Princess Daisy or Princess Peach?
PAL Like Peach, Daisy is a Technique player, but she has something else up her sleeve: a really powerful shot. Do you think the sedate pink and vivid orange reflect Peach and Daisy's different personalities? Would you say you're more Team Peach or Team Daisy? Or maybe...Team Both?
NTSC She may be the princess of Sarasaland, but she doesn't exactly have the poise you might expect from royalty. Daisy is more of a headstrong, active type. That's all part of her charm, though, and rumor has it Luigi is quite smitten with her. Unlike Peach, she's only really been kidnapped once—in Super Mario Land.

NTSC The captain of the Daisy Flowers, Daisy is great both when at bat and when defending. Her fastballs especially are a thing to be feared. Her Star Swing, Flower Swing, will cause a garden to bloom where the ball lands. Fielders will have to wait for the flowers to clear away. What a pretty delay of the game!

NTSC This cute toddler made her first appearance in Mario Kart Wii. If she looks familiar, that's because she's a baby version of Princess Daisy! Look at the determination in those baby eyes—even at such a young age, she was full of drive! Orange was her favorite color at that age too. Even her pacifier is orange!

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a playable character[edit]

Main article: Daisy (SSBU)
Daisy, as she appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Daisy was confirmed to appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable fighter on June 12, 2018 at the E3 2018 direct and is an Echo Fighter of Peach. Daisy has no differences in any of her attacks and is functionally identical to Peach, aside from slightly different hurtboxes due to altered animations. She also has various aesthetic changes such as unique animations and expressions, and flower effects in her attacks instead of hearts.

Like Peach, Daisy's appearance is altered in Super Smash Bros.; her dress has more elaborate details and is stylized. Also, Peach no longer has her Daisy-based alternate costume as Daisy now has her own character slot; in its place, Peach has received a golden alternate costume.

As a Mii costume[edit]

Additionally, the Daisy wig returns as a headgear option for Mii Fighters.
