Peach (ピーチ, Peach) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4. She was confirmed on September 12th, 2013,[1] the day before the 28th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., the landmark NES game in which she debuted. She is among the first wave of compatible amiibo figures.

She is voiced by Samantha Kelly with the same voice clips from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. [2][3]

Peach is currently ranked at 21st place out of 58 characters on the tier list, ranking in the lower end of the B tier; the high tier. This is an improvement from her previous 19th of 38 in Brawl, where she is the last character of the upper-mid-tier. Peach's ability to float gives her a uniquely strong air game and allows her to pressure opponents safely; this along with her Vegetable projectiles makes for a good neutral game in most matchups. Peach has great combos and can perform complicated combos with high damage output. She also has surprisingly good KOing ability due mainly to the high knockback of her forward aerial. However, Peach suffers from light weight, slow movement and difficulty landing safely, which can lead to her being overwhelmed by aggressive opponents. While she is viewed as a respectable fighter, her results at top level play are lackluster overall despite multiple dedicated mains including SlayerZ, Umeki, Kie and Samsora.

Attributes[edit]

Peach is a tall, light character who is quite slow in terms of dashing speed, air speed and falling speed. While this is an unfavorable combination of traits, it is compensated by her unique floating ability. Her float ability grants her the power to hover at any height she chooses, giving her a distinct advantage in combat. This, combined with a potent aerial moveset, makes her a force to be reckoned with.

Peach can play an effective keep-away game. Vegetable serves as her projectile, and as a throwable item, it is quite a versatile one; the move also has a 1/250 chance of spawning a powerful Bob-omb and a 1/166 chance of spawning a shield-shattering Mr. Saturn. Peach's floating ability also helps her to control space; floating low to the ground and using retreating aerials makes her difficult to punish, and this greatly helps her own approach as well, as with good spacing she can attack the opponent's shield with little fear of reprisal. Float can increase her mobility and movement options, allowing her to frustrate her opponents with quick and unpredictable mixups. Her tilt attacks are less safe, but given the right opportunity have decent combo potential. She has a decent grab game, as her down throw can be followed up with a variety of moves and her back throw is relatively strong. All of this gives her a solid set of options in the neutral game.

Peach does not have trouble KOing, either. Her forward aerial's high knockback makes it her best finishing move, and it can be used while floating to "fish" for a kill with relative safety. Back throw is also a good KO option. Floating allows for effective edgeguarding as well, potentially leading to early KOs. Peach also has a potent if somewhat situational set of smash attacks; her forward smash cycles through three weapons each with their own useful properties, her down smash is a multi-hit attack good for catching rolls and edge recovery options, and her up smash is a particularly powerful move when sweetspotted.

Peach does of course have drawbacks, mainly relating to her slow movement. Faster opponents may be able to overwhelm her before she can begin throwing vegetables or otherwise defend herself. If thrown into the air she can have difficulty landing, and this along with her low weight makes her susceptible to juggling and vertical KOs. Peach's ability to approach suffers against characters with long reach and disjoints, as she lacks the agility to get in close before they can hit her. Her recovery is also a potential point of failure, as while she can travel a great deal of horizontal distance, she is left vulnerable if forced to rely on Peach Parasol, and her vertical recovery is somewhat poor, making it possible for her to be gimped. Due to this Peach has a very high learning curve.

In terms of custom moves, Peach has a few notable ones. Sleepy Toad knocks airborne opponents and puts grounded opponents to sleep, allowing for great followups. Light Veggie is great at keeping projectiles out in the open for a while, disrupting her opponents' neutral game. Parasol High Jump addresses her issues regarding vertical recovery, but loses its ability to deal damage as it rises. Flying Peach Bomber also assists Peach's recovery by extending her impressive horizontal distance even more, as well as dealing more damage overall, at the cost of a smaller hitbox. All of her other customs are situational to inferior in comparison to her standard moves, notably Heavy Veggie, which travels vastly less distance than the default Veggie when thrown.

Changes from Brawl[edit]

Peach has received a mix of buffs and nerfs in the transition from Brawl to SSB4, but her direct changes buff her overall as a character. While her moveset appears to be relatively unchanged, many of her attacks deal less damage at the cost of their knockback, and her frame data was also nerfed. Her Peach Bomber, despite its startup buff, has much less power and much more ending lag, removing one of her very few finishers from Brawl. Lastly, Vegetable now takes longer to pluck, worsening her projectile game.

However, Peach has also received some significant buffs. Peach's overall mobility has improved due to having a better double jump, a quicker dashing speed, and a better air speed. Her ground game has been particularly improved thanks to her stronger smash attacks, faster Peach Bomber and her tilt attacks leading to many follow ups. Furthermore, her dash attack, forward aerial and back throw received significant increases in knockback, filling out her lack of finishing moves, a prominent weakness she had in Brawl. Peach's approaches from below are also safer with the gain of a new up aerial. She also has a slightly easier time defending against juggles and aerial followups due to her improved air dodge and slightly faster falling speed.

Unfortunately, Peach's biggest nerf has come from the general mechanic changes of SSB4. The removal of edgehogging makes it much more difficult for Peach to edgeguard. Phantom Footstooling benefits Peach little due to her above average recovery, while making it easier for her opponents to escape her combos due to her overall mobility being below average. Peach is also too slow to benefit from the untechable reeling animation. Due to her status as a lightweight, Peach's lackluster endurance prevents her from making effective use of the rage mechanic herself. On the other hand, her opponents can use the rage mechanic to K.O. Peach relatively early.

Aesthetics[edit]

  • Change Peach looks more cartoony and sleeker than she did in Melee and Brawl. She also has a more brighter dress and it is less detailed. Her facial structure is also softer.
  • Change Much like other characters, Peach has now become more expressive. She, most notably, scowls during certain attacks.
  • Change Peach has a new running animation based on her running animation from Super Mario 3D World.
  • Change Many new animations accompany Peach's established attacks in the form of hearts, rainbows, and magic sparkles.
  • Change The underside of Peach's dress is now darkened, obscuring her undergarments that could be seen previously in Melee and Brawl.

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Peach's double jump has greater vertical height.
  • Buff Peach dashes faster (1.35 → 1.4175).
  • Buff Peach's air speed is higher (0.893 → 0.95).
  • Buff Her air dodge has more invincibility frames and less ending lag, which has ended its status as the worst air dodge among the cast.
  • Change Peach is slightly lighter (90 → 89).
  • Buff Peach falls slightly faster (1.05 → 1.15), improving her defense against juggles.
  • Buff Peach's walking speed when carrying heavy items is much faster.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Nerf Neutral attack deals less damage (6% → 5%).
  • Buff Dash attack's second hit deals more damage (4% → 6%) and has increased knockback scaling (125 → 150), making it a reliable KO move.
  • Buff Forward tilt and down tilt deal increased hitstun, benefiting their combo potential.
  • Nerf Forward tilt deals less damage (6%/10%/11%/13% → 6%/7%/8%), but its knockback was compensated.
  • Nerf Down tilt deals less damage (10% → 7%) without proper compensation on its knockback. It also can no longer meteor smash aerial and ledge opponents.
  • Nerf Up tilt's sweetspot has a much less favorable placement, covering a small part of Peach's body, as opposed to her blast in Brawl. Furthermore, the move is weaker in both damage (10%/13% → 8%/10%) and knockback.
  • Buff Forward smash has greater knockback. It also cycles regularly between the tennis racket, golf club, and frying pan, instead of picking them at random, allowing players to choose what tool to use for the attack.
  • Change Peach now swings all items in her forward smash with one hand instead of both.
  • Buff Up smash's sourspots deal more damage (8% → 12%) and knockback (40 base/100 scaling → 60/100). The 15% sweetspot deals more knockback as well (40 base/100 scaling → 50/97.)
  • Nerf Up smash's 17% sweetspot deals less knockback (40 base/100 scaling → 27/97).
  • Buff Down smash has a greater amount of possible hits (4 → 5), deals drastically more knockback (38 base/80 scaling → 40/180), and gained the ability to trap opponents into it, allowing each further hit to connect more reliably.
  • Nerf Down smash deals less damage (20% → 15%). It also has slightly more ending lag.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Nerf Back aerial (9 frames → 18 frames), up aerial (9 frames → 12 frames), and down aerial (9 frames → 13 frames) have more landing lag.
  • Nerf Neutral aerial has more startup (frame 3 → frame 5) and the late hits deal less damage (9%/10% → 5%/6%) and has a shorter hitbox duration (17 frames → 11).
  • Buff Forward aerial has more knockback (60 base/68 scaling → 45/84) and greater reach, allowing Peach to strike opponents farther forward as well as above and under her.
  • Nerf Except for neutral aerial, all of her aerials autocancel later (forward aerial: 20 frames → 41 frames, back aerial: 20 frames → 30 frames, up aerial 23 frames → 41 frames, down aerial: 32 frames → 38 frames). These changes make it more difficult to autocancel out of her float, weakening its use for shield pressure (particularly with her forward and back aerials).
  • Nerf Back aerial's clean and late hitbox durations are shorter (3 frames → 2 (clean), 11 frames → 6 (late). Back aerial's initial hit also deals less damage (13%/14% → 12%), although with its knockback compensated.
  • Buff Peach gained a new up aerial: an arm swipe that draws a rainbow, consisting of two hits dealing 4% and 6% respectively. It has greater reach, a disjointed hitbox, and better juggling abilities. The first hit allows Peach to follow up with an attack that comes out on frame 10 or below, if she cancels it into the ground quickly.
  • Nerf New up aerial deals less damage (11%/12%/13% → 10%) and its knockback was not compensated properly, making it weaker.
  • Buff Down aerial is much harder to SDI out of, and its last hit deals slightly more knockback (40 base/120 scaling → 60/110).
  • Nerf Down aerial deals less damage (14% → 11%) and Down string has reduced (4 -> 2 on fastfaller and heavyweight) without using double jump or platform.

Throws/other attacks[edit]

  • Nerf All of Peach's grabs have decreased range.
  • Nerf Dash grab comes out slower (6 → 8).
  • Buff Pivot grab comes out faster (13 → 10).
  • Buff Forward throw has slightly increased base knockback (45 → 48).
  • Buff Back throw has received a significant increase in knockback (70 base/40 scaling → 35/95), now being her strongest throw.
  • Buff Up throw has moderately increased knockback (70 base/56 scaling → 72/80).
  • Buff Down throw deals slightly more damage (7% → 8%) and has a better follow-up angle (108° → 106°), which makes it a better combo starter with the changes to hitstun canceling.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Toad's spores are stronger at close range and also turns Peach around when she is hit from behind. Toad also deals 3 more possible hits and 2% more damage if all the hits connect.
  • Buff Peach Bomber is much faster start up and gained the ability to hit shields.
  • Nerf Peach Bomber has much more end lag in the air, making it less useful for recovery. It also deals less damage (15% → 10%) and its knockback was not compensated properly.
  • Buff Peach Parasol is faster and covers more vertical height, and also have fixed knockback when parasol opened.
  • Nerf Peach Parasol's last hit has less knockback overall (60 base/120 scaling → 90/70). Additionally, Peach will automatically close her parasol after floating for 8 seconds and will be unable to open it again until she lands.
  • Change Peach Parasol no longer has a slash effect, instead having a magic effect.
  • Buff Vegetable has an increased chance of pulling out "Stitchface" turnips, Bob-ombs and Mr. Saturns.
  • Nerf Vegetable takes slightly longer to be plucked and can no longer spawn Beam Swords.
  • Buff Peach Blossom is now capable of putting aerial opponents to sleep.
  • Nerf Peach Blossom deals less total damage (40% → 30%), has much less range and puts opponents to sleep for less time.
  • Buff Peach Blossom spawns three large peaches that each heal 20% damage, as opposed to thirteen normal-sized peaches that each heal 5%. While the total healing is slightly less (65% → 60%), the significantly reduced number of peaches makes it faster for Peach to pick them all up.

Update history[edit]

Game updates for Peach have been somewhat unusual, and it is debatable whether or not she has been buffed or nerfed. 1.0.4 fixed several benefical bugs that provided with various ways of cancelling lag on her moves, while also made her aerials get stale when floating, whereas in 1.0.8 and 1.1.1 she only received very minor and nearly unnoticable buffs.

In spite of the bugfixes, Peach has benefitted noticeably from the changes to shieldstun mechanics: most of her aerial moves have became safer on shield due to their damage output and speed combined with her float ability, an example being her forward aerial working as a very useful spacing tool and her down to neutral aerial becoming very hard, if not impossible to interrupt for most characters, bar a few characters with good out of shield games. Her down smash, dot-shaped eye and stitchface turnips, Bob-ombs, Mr. Saturns and Peach Bomber also benefit from these changes, the latter two which also deal bonus shield damage. Altogether, these changes allow her to pressure opponents on shield more effectively, and to effectively wear down a shield more easily. Even so, her out of shield game itself has also been slightly nerfed to compensate, as it is harder for her to punish out of shield with an up smash or dash attack. Some of her laggier moves are also easier to punish out of shield compared to the rest of the cast.

However, 1.1.5 changed some of the type of her up aerial's hitboxes from hitting both grounded and aerial opponents to only hitting aerial ones, which has reduced significantly the amount of characters that got affected by her infinite combo, the "Umeki Rainbow". As a result, her matchups against certain characters that were vulnerable to the combo have been worsened.

In initial versions of the game, she was not able to pull out a turnip out of the ground in For Glory as that would lead into a ban for "cheating". This was remedied in patch 1.0.2.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS 1.0.2

  • Bug fix Fixed glitch where players pulling Vegetables near the start of an online match would get banned for "cheating".

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS 1.0.4

  • Bug fix Fixed "instant turnip pull" glitch, which allowed Peach to interrupt the pulling animation by sliding off an edge.
  • Bug fix Fixed "float-cancelling vegetable toss", which allowed Peach to interrupt a floated aerial's landing lag with an item throw.
  • Bug fix Fixed how aerials performed while floating would not affect the stale moves queue.

Super Smash Bros. 4 1.0.8

  • Buff Both hits of neutral attack have bigger hitboxes.

Technical changelist 1.0.8

Super Smash Bros. 4 1.1.1

  • Buff Toad (64 → 62) and Sleepy/Grumpy Toad (66 → 61) have reduced ending lag and Toad has slightly decreased start-up (11 → 10).

Super Smash Bros. 4 1.1.5

  • Nerf Portions of up aerial no longer hit grounded opponents, reducing the amount of characters that the infinite can be performed on.

Moveset[edit]

  Name Damage Description
Neutral attack   2% Slaps the enemy twice, with unique "slapping" sound effects. The first hit can act as a setup for a down tilt, neutral air, back air, or even a grab, though the second hit has little utility outside of spacing since it cannot KO reliably. The move is similar to her Super Slap attack in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
3%
Forward tilt   7% (early, clean leg), 8% (clean foot), 6% (late) Kicks forward 180 degrees from low to high. Has good range for a forward tilt, and unusually for an attack of its type, launches opponents vertically, allowing it to perform air combos.
Up tilt   10% (body), 8% (blast) Extends her arm upward, making a pink heart burst above her head. Can KO at high percentages if the sweetspot hits.
Down tilt   7% A downward sweep of the hand to the ground. This move can meteor smash when sweetspotted, but on grounded opponents only. Decently strong attack with moderate startup that can follow up into a forward smash at lower percents, forward or up aerials at mid-percents, and into an up special at higher percents, should the opponent not tech the move.
Dash attack   4% (hit 1), 6% (hit 2) Strikes with both arms extended forward, then quickly spreads her arms out. Unlike in Brawl, the first hit's knockback never grows, so both hits nearly always connect. The second hit has high knockback that can KO at high percentages.
Forward smash   15% (club), 18% (pan), 13% (racket) Strikes with a bludgeon, cycling regularly between a golf club, frying pan, or a tennis racket. Each weapon has different properties - the frying pan has more vertical knockback (and the most damage), the golf club has more diagonal knockback (and the most range), and the tennis racket has more horizontal knockback and is the strongest semi-spike in the game.
Up smash   17% (clean arm), 15% (clean body), 12% (clean sides), 10% (late body), 12% (late hand) Raises her arm and twirls a pink ribbon. Powerful vertical knockback if sweetspotted (Peach's body, as opposed to her arm).
Down smash   2% (hits 1-4 center), 3% (hits 1-4 edges), 3% (hit 5) Spins dress around like a blade, slashing whoever gets caught in it. Decent knockback (lower than in Melee, higher than in Brawl).
Neutral aerial   13% (clean), 6% (late arms), 5% (late body) Spins around at an angle with arms extended, dealing damage to her left and right sides. One of the strongest neutral aerials when hitting clean, though it is considerably weaker if the late hit connects, and it has low range.
Forward aerial   15% Peach grabs the crown off her head and strikes with it in a vertical arc. Has the slowest startup out of all her aerial attack (frame 16) along with noticeable ending lag and a strict autocancel window. However, it is also her strongest aerial and one of the strongest forward aerials in SSB4, KO'ing starting at 100% at the edge of Battlefield while it also has good range above and in front of her. The sweetspot is the visible flash at the start of the swing.
Back aerial   12% (clean), 7% (late) Peach strikes behind her with her rear. Low startup lag, making it quicker than her forward aerial, but has notable ending lag.
Up aerial   4% (hit 1), 6% (hit 2) Strikes above her head with arms from left to right, creating rainbow trails and launching targets upward. Good for juggles. First hit is very weak with set knockback and can follow up into other attacks, if she cancels it very quickly to the ground. Most notably, she can perform zero to death combos by repeatedly footstool, float, to falling auto canceled first hit of up aerial and then neutral aerial off stage at high percent against many characters, except small characters.
Down aerial   2% (hits 1-3 leg), 1% (hits 1-3 body), 5% (hit 4) Rapidly kicks straight downwards four times. Long duration. Fourth kick has some vertical knockback. When she is in rage mode, it leads into the reversed first hit of Peach Parasol at low percentages for a zero to death against lighter characters.
Grab   Reaches out with her left arm. Peach's grab range is relatively short, though it has relatively short startup and ending lag.
Pummel   2% Kicks the opponent's shin. A fairly fast pummel.
Forward throw   2% (hit 1), 8% (throw) Winds up and slaps the opponent away. Like her neutral attack, her forward throw has unique "slapping" sound effects. Decent knockback, though it does not KO unless used in Sudden Death.
Back throw   2% (hit 1), 9% (throw) Places opponent behind her and bumps him/her away with her rear. It is now her strongest throw, gaining KO potential starting at 130% on middleweights.
Up throw   2% (hit 1), 6% (throw) Puts opponent above her, and strikes him/her upward. Can set up combos at low percentages and KO lightweight/floaty characters at high percentages.
Down throw   1% (hit 1), 7% (throw) Puts opponent lying face-up on the ground and sits on him/her, creating upwards knockback. Good for combos.
Floor attack (front)   7% Swirls around in a similar fashion to Mario's down smash.
Floor attack (back)   7% Swings her legs around.
Floor attack (trip)   5% Two kicks to either side.
Edge attack   7% While getting up, swipes forward with a hand at ground-level.
Neutral special Default Toad 2% (per hit) Peach raises Toad in front of her, using him as an unwilling counter. In other words, he absorbs damage dealt to his princess before releasing it back in the form of painful spores.
Custom 1 Sleepy Toad 3% Toad is pulled out out 2 frames later, and releases bubbles to inflict the sleep status ailment for a brief amount of time to grounded opponents. Airborne opponents will be pushed back. Sleep duration lasts longer at high percentages. It has slightly lower ending lag.
Custom 2 Grumpy Toad 2.5% (per-hit near), 1.2% (per-hit clean far), 1.0% (per-hit late far) Grumpy Toad, unlike regular and Sleepy Toad, doesn't act like a counter. Instead, he automatically releases the spores to deal minor damage to opponents.
Side special Default Peach Bomber 10% Peach lunges her body forward to deliver a powerful hip bash. Upon impact, she rebounds away from the victim, allowing for hit-and-run tactics.
Custom 1 Flower Bomber 4% Peach travels a much shorter distance than normal, and deals less damage. Opponents hit by it will be inflicted the flower status ailment, similar to Rest or using the Lip's Stick item. Has more ending lag than the regular Peach Bomber, but less startup lag.
Custom 2 Flying Peach Bomber 12% Peach launches forward and upward, travelling farther than the regular Peach Bomber. It is harder to land, but it deals more knockback and damage. It is a flame attack, akin to Melee.
Up special Default Peach Parasol 3% (first hit), 1% (middle hits), 4% (last hit), 3% (open) Peach jumps upward and then opens her parasol, jabbing those above her in the process. It can then be used as a directional glide but can also be opened or closed at will. The first hit of Peach Parasol has very high base knockback and can KO at low percent against lighter characters depending on rage.
Custom 1 Parasol High Jump 0% As the name implies, Peach jumps much higher than usual. However, it deals no damage and she never opens her parasol, leaving herself helpless afterwards.
Custom 2 Light Parasol 3% At the cost of decreasing her initial jump, Peach gains additional vertical recovery every time she opens up her parasol. This lasts long enough to open it up to four times while airborne. After that duration, Peach will become helpless. [4]
Down special Default Vegetable Varies Plucks a Super Mario Bros. 2 Vegetable from the ground. She can then throw it as a projectile item. Its face determines how much damage it will do; the rarer the expression, the stronger the turnip. Along with turnips, Peach can rarely pull out Mr. Saturns and Bob-ombs.
Custom 1 Light Veggie Varies The turnips are plucked much faster (in a similar way to Brawl's Vegetable) while dealing less damage. It travels the air more slowly and farther ahead. It will also fly back toward Peach if it hits an opponent, allowing her to throw another one while the last turnip is floating back towards her. The move will fail if there's already two Light Veggies out.
Custom 2 Heavy Veggie Varies The vegetables takes longer to be plucked. When tossed, they fly faster but don't travel as far. It deals considerably more damage and knockback.
Final Smash Peach Blossom 30%/20%/10% (hit 1), 0% (hits 2-3) Peach performs a mystic dance, causing all of her enemies to fall asleep. The closer they are to her when she activates it, more damage will be dealt and they'll slumber for a longer time. Sleep duration is notably shorter than in Brawl. Additionally, instead of thirteen small peaches healing 5%, three giant peaches appear, each healing 20%.

Tier placement and history[edit]

Since the game's release, expectations of Peach have been those of a mid-tier, and often a high-tiered character. Players noted her steep learning curve made her a situational choice for competitive play, though others also cited her improvements since Brawl and how her playstyle was very rewarding once she was mastered to her fullest. The changes to shield mechanics were also benefical to her as they significantly improved her pressure game. As a result, and due to hardly any nerf she got in game updates, she has always been seen as a viable, if hard to master, choice for competitive play. Despite her learning curve giving her a noticeably below average playerbase, smashers like Kie, SlayerZ, Samsora and Umeki have been able to demonstrate her capabilities in tournaments at a major degree. This led to Peach being placed at 19th in the first 4BR tier list.

Peach's results, however, while consistent, have never been as bountiful as other characters ranked above her, and eventually, other characters ranked below her, causing expectations of her to slowly drop. This was further compounded by the worsening of her infinite combo (the "Umeki Rainbow"). Because of this, she dropped on the second tier list at 26th. She then saw a moderate rise to 21st on the third and current tier list. Regardless, it is unknown how her tier placement will fare in the long run, due to the scarcity of her results influencing her mixed perception within the community.

Trophies[edit]

Peach
North America Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, Peach continues to prove that "powerful" and "cute" are not mutually exclusive. In Smash Bros., Peach uses her dress to float above the fray, suddenly descending and attacking with numerous weapons. A frying pan? Umbrella? TOAD?! Where does she keep it all?
Europe The Mushroom Kingdom's princess isn't just a pretty face - she's also strong and crafty. She can dodge attacks by gliding through the air, and she's hiding all sorts of stuff under that dress: a frying pan, a tennis racket, a golf club...even a Toad! If you're planning to take on Peach, just know that she's more than ready for you!

Peach (Alt.)
North America Peach may be a princess, but that doesn't mean she shies away from an honest day's work. Her down special Vegetable is basically farm labor, and the fruits...er, vegetables of her work can be thrown. An angry-looking vegetable will do extra damage, too! She can also pull up Bob-ombs, or even a Mr. Saturn!
Europe Peach normally sticks to tasks befitting a royal, but her Vegetable special is pretty much farm labour! You can tell how much damage the veggies will do by looking a them. Happy/indifferent ones just do a bit, while the ones that just look sick of life do a lot. And the ones that look like Bob-ombs or Mr. Saturn aren't veggies at all!

Peach Blossom
Peach's Final Smash is quite a spectacle to behold. Giant illustrations of Peach herself frame the screen, giant peaches rain down, and all the other fighters fall asleep. The closer they are to Peach, the longer they'll stay snoozing, giving Peach plenty of time to send foes flying or to recover her health with the peaches.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, a bug existed wherein using Peach's Vegetable move in For Glory mode would rarely trigger an automatic ban for "dishonest play".[5] It is unclear what the cause of the glitch was, but the main theories involve the player being flagged as having an illegitimate item. Nintendo acknowledged the glitch and released an update that fixed this issue.[6]
  • Peach has four idle animations, the most out of any character in the game.
  • Peach is the only character in SSB4 to be unable to use her down special in midair at all.
  • Peach's alt. trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U resembles her Adventure Mode trophy in Melee, albeit flipped.
    • Also the alt trophy in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is very similar to its all star mode trophy in Melee, but in the ground.
  • Peach's dress has multiple animation bugs during her landing lag animations.
