Event 19: Peach's Peril
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 at all, aside from using Peach Parasol to recover if knocked off the stage. Bowser will direct most of his attacks towards Peach.
The player is able to KO Bowser, but he has infinite stocks and respawns until the timer runs out. To successfully complete the event, both the player and Peach must survive the whole minute. If the player (Mario) or Peach is 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.
This event match is a homage to most of the games in the mainline Mario series (like Super Mario Bros.), wherein Bowser frequently kidnaps Peach and Mario has to rescue her by defeating Bowser. In keeping with this, a song from the Mario universe, Princess Peach's Castle, is played during the match, despite the event taking place on Final Destination.
