Peach (ピーチ, Peach) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Peach was revealed for the game along with the rest of the veterans on June 12th, 2018. However, unlike previous Smash Bros. games since Super Smash Bros. Melee (her first playable appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series), Peach is now an unlockable character rather than being available from the start. Peach is classified as Fighter #13, the first fighter number of the Melee veterans.

As in Super Smash Bros. 4, Samantha Kelly's portrayal of Peach from Super Smash Bros. Brawl was repurposed for Ultimate.

Peach, alongside her Echo Fighter Daisy, is ranked 7th out of 82 on the current tier list, placing her in the S- tier. This is a notable improvement from her 20th out of 54 placement in SSB4, and is her best placement in the series. Peach is one of the most unique characters in the game with her ability to float and do some of the most damaging combos in the game through float canceling as well as an amazing movement option and recovery tool. Her Vegetable is also an outstanding and versatile item projectile that aids with her combo game as well as a solid edgeguarding tool. Her edgeguarding is also amazing thanks to her aforementioned float, allowing her to go far and deep with moves such as forward aerial, back aerial, neutral aerial, and more. While Ultimate introduced a multiplier that reduces damage if performing aerials in a short hop, she can completely ignore it by performing a full hop and float next to the ground, and since all her aerials can autocancel in a short hop, she can avoid the landing lag more easily than other characters. Floating also allow her to safely pressure her opponent's shields. All in all, this gives Peach some of the best and most dominant aerial games in Ultimate.

However, Peach has several flaws. She is somewhat of a light character so she is susceptible to getting KO’d at fairly early percents. She is also lacking in range allowing for characters like Shulk and Cloud to wall her out effectively or hit her float. Peach also has some difficulty landing or getting back to the ground making her prone to juggling and her air dodge being one of the worst in terms of endlag. Finally, Peach is one of the most difficult characters to play because of her unique strengths and her float canceling techniques being a bit much for human error to take into account due to her precision.

Overall, Peach is a strong character that can do a lot of damage but she requires a lot of dedication and commitment to take her to the highest level. Both Peach and her echo Daisy have consistently been seen as among the best characters in the game throughout the game’s lifespan, with most notably Samsora in the early metagame showing strong results at supermajors before the COVID-19 pandemic. In the post pandemic era, players such as MuteAce and Umeki have continued to bring strong results for her.

How to unlock[edit]

Complete one of the following:

With the exception of the third method, Peach must then be defeated on Princess Peach's Castle. In World of Light, she is fought on Mushroom Kingdom U.


Peach is a somewhat light character who is quite slow in terms of walking speed and dashing speed, and has an extremely slow falling speed and very low gravity, while her air speed is only average. While this is an unfavorable combination of traits, it is compensated by her unique floating ability and her very high air acceleration.

Peach's aerial game is one of her greatest strengths. Her floating ability grants her the power to hover at any height she chooses, giving her a distinct advantage in aerial combat. Floating 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. 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. Additionally, floating aids Peach's off-stage presence when combined with her slow falling speed, despite her low jumps and the high ending lag of her aerial attacks (except for down aerial); not only does it help her cover certain angles when edgeguarding, it can also be used to aid her horizontal recovery or potentially even allow her to go underneath stages to stall. Neutral aerial is her fastest aerial with the lowest landing lag, and deals an impressively high amount of damage despite its speed while also possessing a decently long duration; when combined with her ability to float close to the ground, neutral aerial's combination of fast startup, low base knockback and low landing lag makes it an incredibly good combo tool at lower percents that can even lead into itself with enough technical skill, especially after a down tilt, while its damage output and knockback scaling ensures that it still has decent KO potential at higher ones. Her forward aerial is her slowest aerial attack, but it is also her strongest one, and it can be used while floating to search for a finishing move with relative safety, especially given its disjointed hitbox and fairly low landing lag relative to its strength; however, it possesses a weaker sourspot on her arm. Her back aerial possesses a decent combination of fast startup with good range and power in addition to being her most reliable follow-up from a down throw, and although it suffers from notable ending lag compared to other back aerials, Peach's float and slow falling speed compensate for this. Up aerial hits twice and is impressively disjointed, while the first hit can potentially drag down opponents after a short hop height down aerial for grounded follow-ups; however, its horizontal range compared to Peach's other aerial attacks is somewhat lacking. Finally, her down aerial has the lowest ending lag of all her aerial attacks, and can be used as a potential combo starter at low to middle percents thanks to the final hit's vertical angle.

Comparatively, her grounded attacks are less effective in direct comparison, but are not without utility. Neutral attack comes out on frame 2, making it not only Peach's fastest attack, but also one of the fastest neutral attacks in the entire game; conversely, it is fairly weak compared to other two-hit jabs. Up tilt has a disjointed hitbox above her and can be used as an anti-air attack. Forward tilt is a potential follow-up from down throw, has decent horizontal and vertical range while being disjointed, and uniquely has a vertical launch angle. Down tilt is her fastest tilt attack, and while it is less disjointed than her other tilts, it possesses decent combo potential; with sufficient technical skill, it is possible to follow up the move with multiple neutral aerials performed from ground-level floats. Dash attack is relatively fast and decently disjointed, with the first hit reliably leading into the second, and it can also serve as a potential KO move at very high percents. She has a decent grab game, as her down throw can be followed up with a back aerial, forward tilt or neutral aerial, forward and back throws can easily setup edgeguards, and back throw can even serve as a KO move at extremely high percents. Peach also has a potent if somewhat situational set of smash attacks, all of them possessing reasonably good range: her forward smash can be angled up or down, giving her access to three different weapons (golf club if unangled, frying pan if angled up, or tennis racket if angled down), each with their own useful properties; 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, while also granting intangibility to her head and arms.

Her special moves have their uses as well. Toad is a counterattack where if either Peach or Toad himself are attacked, the latter will retaliate with spores hitting multiple times. Like most other counterattacks, the move can be used as an edgeguarding tool against certain recovery moves with damaging hitboxes, most notably Ike's Aether and Chrom's Soaring Slash. Unlike most other counterattacks, Toad does not scale relative to the strength of the attack countered. Toad's spores can be reflected or absorbed, with the former property rendering the move useless against many reflectors, such as Mario's Cape or Fox's Reflector. Peach Bomber is a move where Peach lunges forward and strikes with her rear; it can be used as a horizontal recovery option in addition to her aforementioned floating ability, its travel distance is increased if the move is smash-inputted, and in addition to being decently strong if successfully landed, it is also very difficult to punish out of shield because of how she rebounds after successfully hitting a target, though it suffers from high ending lag if whiffed. Peach Parasol is a serviceable vertical recovery move, and can be used as an out-of-shield option thanks to its fast startup and decent range. It is also fairly difficult to contest from above thanks to its large disjoint above her and lingering hitbox if the parasol is kept open after ascending. Finally, 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.

While Peach has exceptional strengths, that does not mean she has no weaknesses. 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 when combined with her floatiness, this makes her susceptible to juggling and vertical combos. Peach's ability to approach suffers against swordfighters like Shulk and Cloud or zoners like R.O.B. and Samus, as she lacks the agility to get in close before they can hit her. Her recovery, while very good, is also a potential point of failure, as while she can travel a great deal of horizontal distance, she can also be left vulnerable if forced to rely on Peach Parasol and her vertical recovery is average at best (discounting the incredibly dangerous and situational Bob-omb), as well as predictable. Additionally, her vegetables, being item projectiles, can be picked up by opponents and used against her, despite being fairly useful overall.

Overall, Peach is a technical character that, once mastered, is a major threat to any opponent. Her floating ability, very high air acceleration, and solid aerial attacks give Peach a fantastic air game that allows her to easily outmaneuver her opponents, and initiate devastating set-ups, which is further supplemented with useful specials. However, Peach players have to be aware of her slow grounded movement, somewhat light weight, and extreme floatiness by maximizing her floating ability to constantly transition between the ground and the air, and carefully utilize her moveset to avoid being punished for even a simple mistake.

Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Peach has been heavily buffed overall in the transition to Ultimate. Although most of her kit remains largely identical to their SSB4 counterparts, it has seen noticeable improvements in addition to being further bolstered by gameplay mechanics.

Peach has received a new down tilt with faster startup, and it benefits from the removal of teching for grounded meteor smashes, making it a consistently powerful combo tool that is also safer to use. Forward smash now allows her to choose which weapon to use via angling, instead of having to use it repeatedly to cycle weapons, greatly increasing its reliability. Her special moveset has also seen buffs: Toad is faster as a counterattack and deals more damage; Peach Bomber is faster in the air and stronger; improving its recovery and KO potential; and Vegetables deal more knockback and are faster to both pluck and throw, improving her projectile game.

The changes to gameplay mechanics, however, have given Peach the most improvements. As with most characters, Peach's mobility is faster and her aerials have less landing lag, noticeably aiding her approach and combo game. The new 0.85× damage multiplier for aerial attacks performed in a short hop affects Peach the least out of any returning veteran, as her float bypasses the multiplier, allowing her to attack low to the ground with her aerials; this considerably strengthens her shield pressure and combo potential, with both being one of the most oppressive and one of the rawest in the game in terms of damage and KO power, respectively.

Peach has received a few nerfs though, both indirect and direct. The changes to rage and air dodging both help and hinder Peach. The former improves her survivability and allows her to take general advantage of it more effectively, but notably removes Peach Parasol's infamous ability to one-hit KO opponents by landing only the first hit if she is at a high percentage. The latter makes her combo game more oppressive as well as improving her edgeguarding game, but this also makes her own air dodges among the slowest in the game in terms of ending lag.

In terms of direct changes, her forward aerial, previously one of her most effective KO moves, is weaker and has received a sourspot, making it more difficult to use effectively. Her dash attack and back throw both have reduced knockback as well.

Overall, Peach has considerably better than her SSB4 incarnation thanks to a superior mobility and combo game, and the changes to Ultimate's mechanics have further strengthened her caveats. However, Peach still retains some of her weaknesses from the previous game, such as her overall poor mobility, and her somewhat light weight and extreme floatiness rendering her vulnerable to vertical KOs and juggling, the latter of which gives her trouble landing safely. Game updates have also brought some noticeable nerfs to Peach; though the metagame's optimization has shown this has only mildly impacted her viability. Ultimately, Peach fares much better than she did in SSB4, and this is considered to be her strongest incarnation in the series, even above her initial Melee iteration.


  • Change Due to the aesthetic used in Ultimate, Peach's model features a more subdued color scheme. Her dress retains its design from SSB4, but features a glossy satin texture. Her hair and gloves feature subtle detailing, similar to her design in Brawl.
  • Change Peach has a new alternate costume—a golden dress. It replaces her Princess Daisy-inspired costume, most likely due to Daisy being a separate character as Peach's Echo Fighter.
  • Change Peach faces the foreground at an angle, instead of facing directly forward. In addition, her stance, moveset, and animations are mirrored as a result.
  • Change Like other fighters, Peach is more expressive, having angrier facial expressions during many of her attacks.
  • Change Double jump and air dodge animation has changed slightly. Additionally, Peach's stun animation is sped up.
  • Change Peach's dress has independent physics, like in Melee. Her dress also no longer puffs up when floating.
  • Change As with all veterans, Peach's taunts have been sped up, resulting in two of them being tweaked:
    • Change Side taunt has been shortened, as she only dances back and forth once instead of three times, though the music notes still appear. Peach's voice has also been slightly sped up.
    • Change Down taunt has a heart pop up next to her head. She also no longer spins and winks immediately.
  • Change Peach's victory poses have been changed:
    • Change Her left-inputted victory pose is completely new. She twirls once while leaning on her parasol and raises it while saying "Aw, did I win?". This replaces her right-inputted victory pose from Melee to SSB4 where she swings her arm out and puts it behind her.
    • Change Her left-inputted victory pose from previous games has been moved to the right button and has significantly altered appearance: spinning before waving with her right hand, one has her walking towards the screen waving before blowing a kiss and continuing to wave with her left hand. She also says "Peachy!", as in her right-inputted pose from Brawl and SSB4.
    • Change Her up-inputted victory pose has her perform a more elegant twirl before striking the pose.


  • Buff Like all characters, Peach's jumpsquat animation takes 3 frames to complete (down from 5).
  • Buff Peach walks slightly faster (0.86 → 0.924).
  • Buff Peach runs faster (1.4175 → 1.595).
    • Buff Her initial dash is significantly faster (1.5 → 1.826).
  • Buff Peach's traction is much higher (0.068 → 0.111).
  • Buff Peach's air speed is faster (0.95 → 1.029), which also increases her floating speed and distance.
  • Change Peach's base air acceleration has been increased (0.01 → 0.04), but her additional air acceleration has been reduced (0.1 → 0.08). This increases her total air acceleration (0.11 → 0.12) but gives her less control over her air speed.
  • Change Peach's falling speed (1.15 → 1.19) and fast falling speed (1.84 → 1.904) are slightly faster.
  • Change Peach's gravity has been increased (0.068 → 0.07).
  • Nerf Forward roll grants less intangibility (frames 4-17 → 4-15).
  • Nerf Back roll has more startup with less intangibility (frames 4-17 → 5-16), and more ending lag (FAF 31 → 36).
  • Buff Spot dodge has less ending lag (FAF 28 → 27).
  • Nerf Spot dodge grants less intangibility (frames 3-18 → 3-17).
  • Buff Air dodge grants more intangibility (frames 3-28 → 3-30).
  • Nerf Air dodge has significantly more ending lag (FAF 34 → 62), being tied with her Echo Fighter for the third slowest air dodge in the game duration-wise, only behind Rosalina and Jigglypuff.
  • Change The homogenization of fall speeds during vertical knockback improves Peach's survivability, but makes her more susceptible to combos.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Neutral attack:
    • Buff The first hit has altered angles (74°/78° → 361°/180°), allowing it to lock opponents.
    • Buff The first hit transitions slightly faster into the second hit (frame 8 → 7).
    • Buff The second hit launches at a lower angle (361° → 35°) and has different knockback values (30 base/100 scaling → 60/70), making it safer on hit.
    • Nerf Both hits have a higher hitlag multiplier (1× → 1.2× (hit 1), 1.8× (hit 2)), giving opponents more time to SDI the first hit and DI the second hit.
    • Nerf The first hit has a shorter hitbox duration (frames 2-3 → 2).
    • Nerf The second hit's inner hitbox is smaller (4u → 3u).
    • Nerf The first hit no longer uses set knockback (20 set/100 scaling → 30/20 base/25/15 scaling), causing it to connect less reliably into the second hit at higher percents without giving it jab cancel setups.
  • Up tilt:
    • Change The stronger and weaker hits have been reversed: the hitbox on the heart is stronger than the hitbox on her shoulders, much like in Brawl.
  • Down tilt:
    • Change Peach has a new down tilt: a sweep kick rather than an arm sweep.
    • Buff It has noticeably less startup (frame 13 → 8), with its total duration reduced as well (FAF 28 → 24). Combined with grounded meteor smashes no longer being techable, this allows it to start combos much more effectively.
    • Buff The hitbox for aerial opponents matches the one for grounded opponents, no longer being shorter and attached to Peach.
    • Nerf It no longer grants intangibility.
    • Bug fix The zero gravity glitch can no longer be performed.
  • Dash attack:
    • Buff Dash attack's first hit uses different hitboxes for grounded and aerial opponents, which change in angle (70°/50° → 40°/68° (grounded)/30°/40° (aerial)) and set knockback values (50/70 → 55/40 (grounded)/45/25 (aerial)), and use weight-independent knockback. This allows it to connect better into the second hit.
    • Buff The first hit has gained a shieldstun multiplier of 2.9×, preventing shielding opponents from escaping before the second hit comes out.
    • Buff The second hit's outermost hitbox is slightly larger (4u → 4.5u).
    • Nerf The second hit has lower knockback scaling (140 → 130), hindering its KO potential.
    • Change Hearts appear at the end of the move.
  • Forward smash:
    • Buff Forward smash no longer cycles between its three weapons in a set order, instead being determined by which angle the control stick is held into (angling upwards uses the frying pan, angling downwards uses the tennis racket, and no angling uses the golf club). This greatly improves its reliability, letting Peach freely choose what weapon to use without having to telegraph it. This also allows her to change weapon while charging the move.
    • Buff The golf club's tipper hitbox deals more knockback (60 base/65 scaling → 65/68).
    • Buff The tennis racket deals more damage (13% → 13.5%) and is consistent throughout.
    • Nerf The golf club launches at a higher angle (361° → 45°), hindering the sourspots' KO potential.
    • Nerf The tennis racket deals less knockback (80/86 base/56/60 scaling → 65/60), hindering its KO potential despite its increased damage and marginally lower launch angle (28° → 27°).
    • Nerf The frying pan has less base knockback (70 → 68).
  • Down smash:
    • Buff Down smash hits up to seven times instead of five, and deals consistent damage (2%/3% (hits 1-4) → 2% (hits 1-6), 11%-15% → 15% (total)).
      • Buff This also gives it more active frames (6-7, 11-12, 16-17, 21-22, 26-27 → 6-7, 10-11, 14-15, 18-19, 22-23, 26-27, 30-31).
    • Buff The looping hits keep opponents on the ground (15°/170° → 0°/180°), have different set knockback values (30/20 → 20/25), and lower hitlag and SDI multipliers (1× → 0.5×), allowing them to connect more reliably.
    • Change The final hit's hitbox is higher up (Y offset: 1.6 → 1.8), improving its range against onstage opponents but weakening it against opponents below the ledge.
    • Change Its animation has been reversed, with Peach spinning towards the screen rather than away from it.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff All aerials have less landing lag (11 frames → 7 (neutral), 22 → 13 (forward), 18 → 11 (back), 12 → 7 (up), 13 → 8 (down)).
  • Buff The introduction of the 0.85× damage multiplier for short hopped aerials benefits Peach, as unlike the rest of the cast (besides her Echo Fighter, Daisy), she can do a full hop and still attack with her aerials at a low height thanks to her floating ability, effectively bypassing the damage multiplier.
  • Forward aerial:
    • Nerf Forward aerial has gained a sourspot on Peach's arm that deals less damage (15% → 14%) and takes priority over the sweetspot, with both also dealing less knockback (45 base/84 scaling → 50 base/71/74 scaling), greatly hindering its KO potential.
    • Change It has a different angle (361° → 42°), making it slightly higher against grounded opponents, but slightly lower against aerial opponents.
    • Change It has a magic-like trail of red and turquoise sparkles emerging from Peach's crown.
  • Back aerial:
    • Change Back aerial has hearts emerging from near Peach's rear.
    • Buff The late hitbox is larger (5u → 6u), no longer being smaller than the clean hit, improving its range.

Throws and other attacks[edit]

  • Change Peach's animation when holding a Super Scope or Gust Bellows has been altered, as she now holds the item in a manner similar to a rifle.
  • Grabs:
    • Nerf All grabs have more ending lag (FAF 32 → 37 (standing), 40 → 45 (dash), 38 → 40 (pivot)).
    • Nerf Dash grab has more startup (frame 8 → 9).
    • Nerf Dash grab's grabbox does not extend as far (Z offset: 4-10.6 → 4-10.4), slightly reducing its range.
  • Change When Peach grabs an opponent, Toad appears to attack alongside her when she uses her pummel and throws.
  • Pummel:
    • Change Peach has a new pummel, where Toad punches the opponent.
    • Buff It deals more hitlag (4 frames → 14), but has less startup (frame 4 → 1) and much less ending lag (FAF 19 → 7), shortening its duration.
    • Nerf It deals less damage (2% → 1.3%).
  • Forward throw:
    • Change Peach has a new forward throw; Peach prepares to slap the opponent, then Toad headbutts the opponent away, much to Peach's surprise.
    • Buff It deals much more knockback to bystanders (12 base/0 scaling → 55/50) and launches them more horizontally (80° → 361°), allowing it to force them off the stage.
  • Back throw:
    • Nerf Back throw has less knockback scaling (95 → 88), no longer KOing opponents until around 150% at the edge.
  • Down throw:
    • Change Peach has a new down throw, where Toad headbutts the opponent onto the ground.
    • Buff It has increased combo potential due to her faster jumpsquat and jump speed.
  • Edge attack:
    • Buff Edge attack deals more damage (7% → 9%).

Special moves[edit]

  • Toad:
    • Buff Toad has less startup with a longer counter window (frames 10-34 → 8-34), and grants intangibility sooner (frame 11 → 8).
    • Buff It hits up to six times, down from nine, but deals more damage per hit (2% → 3.5%), increasing its total output (18% → 21%), with knockback adjusted on the last hit (15 base/300 scaling → 40/210), dealing more knockback overall.
    • Nerf It no longer grants slight vertical distance on its first midair use, instead merely stalling Peach in place, and subsequent uses cause her to start falling immediately rather than stall, worsening the move's edgeguarding and recovery abilities.
    • Nerf Its intangibility has a shorter duration (frames 11-14 → 8-10).
    • Change The last hit launches at a higher angle (361° → 45°).
    • Change The spores are individual projectiles rather than hitboxes attached to Peach.
      • Buff As a result, Peach no longer takes any hitlag from the move, allowing it to transition faster and connect more reliably, despite each hit having a higher hitlag multiplier (0.4× → 1×).
      • Nerf However, this greatly decreases its shieldstun.
    • Change Toad has a different animation. Peach ducks down covering her ears while Toad angrily appears in front of her. If Toad successfully counters an attack, Peach winces in shock instead of crouching.
  • Peach Bomber:
    • Buff Peach Bomber has less startup (frame 14 (grounded), frame 20 (aerial) → 13 (both)) and ending lag (FAF 65 → 63 (grounded), 95 → 88 (aerial)).
    • Buff It deals more damage (10% → 12%) and has more knockback scaling (69 → 73), greatly improving its KO potential.
    • Buff Peach can control her drift much earlier after a missed aerial Peach Bomber.
    • Change Peach has less recoil when landing the move (initial speed: -1.2 → -0.95).
    • Nerf It has more ending lag if it connects (FAF 21 → 25).
  • Peach Parasol:
    • Buff Peach Parasol has less landing lag if the parasol is open (41 frames → 26).
    • Buff The looping hits use weight-independent knockback, with the last one also having a different autolink angle (366° → 368°), and all of them having different set knockback values (180/160 (hit 1), 90 (hit 2-5) → 160/130 (hit 1), 160/80/70 (hits 2-4), 80/70 (hit 5)), allowing them to connect more reliably.
    • Nerf Due to rage being changed to not affect set knockback, and the first hit's lower values, it can no longer one-hit KO opponents, removing Peach's early KO setups.
    • Nerf The open parasol during Peach's descent deals less damage (3% → 2%) and significantly less knockback (90 base/100 scaling → 65/15), making a single hit much less safe.
    • Buff The open parasol no longer deals any hitlag, and has a faster rehit rate (30 → 18), which combined with the previous change allows Peach to more effectively hit opponents multiple times with it, much like in Melee.
  • Vegetable:
    • Buff Vegetable has less ending lag (FAF 43 → 40).
    • Buff Peach's item throw has less ending lag on the ground in all directions (FAF 27 (forward)/back)/26 (up)/22 (down) → 25/24/20), now matching their aerial counterparts.
    • Buff All turnips have increased base damage values (2% (normal/carrot/line/dot/happy)/6% (wink)/12% (dot)/23% (stitch-face) → 5%/10%/16%/24%).
    • Buff Turnips have less base knockback but more knockback scaling (30 base/35 scaling → 25/45), improving weaker turnips' combo potential and stronger turnips' KO potential.
    • Change Upon hitting the ground, turnips bounce off it before vanishing, although they still lose their hitbox and cannot be grabbed upon doing so.
    • Nerf Turnips have smaller hitboxes (2.4u → 2.1u).
    • Nerf Turnips now deal negative shield damage (0 → -2.5).
  • Peach Blossom:
    • Buff Peach Blossom has more knockback scaling (120/90/60 (clean), 100/80/60 (late) → 230/130/100 (clean), 200/130/100 (late)), putting opponents to sleep for longer as a result.

Update history[edit]

Most likely as a result of her dominating performances in the competitive scene of Ultimate, Peach was nerfed overall by game updates. She received a few nerfs in update 3.0.0, her Toad can no longer be used to stall indefinitely in the air, now only stalling at its first use, and her Vegetables deal less shield damage, hindering the projectiles' shield pressure capabilities.

Update 3.1.0 arguably nerfed her harder than any other balance patch in the game's lifespan: Both back throw and forward aerial deal less knockback, further weakening what was considered to be her more effective KOing options, Peach Bomber has more endlag when connected, hindering its safety against shields, and Vegetable has more endlag, leaving Peach more vulnerable to enemy attacks when plucking turnips. Moreover, the removal of held item attacks makes her options when holding a turnip less versatile.

However, Peach has also received a few small buffs in various updates. Thanks to its changes in updates 2.0.0, 3.1.0, and 5.0.0, Peach Parasol connects more reliably against opponents and grabs the ledge much easier, patch 3.1.0 allows jab to connect more efficiently, and forward smash's golf club swing deals more knockback, improving its KO potential. Patch 4.0.0 made it so Toad's spores connect more reliably when countering an attack from behind, and 13.0.1 made so Peach Bomber now allows Peach to grab the edges of stages for its entire duration.

Overall, while Peach, along with Daisy, have been nerfed, the Princesses are still seen as some of the game's best characters, and remain highly prevalent and successful in the competitive scene to this day.

  • Bug fix The launch angles of Peach Parasol's multihits have been adjusted, preventing scenarios where the opponent would be launched at a great distance when hit from the ledge.
  • Nerf Vegetable deals less shield damage (0 → -2.5).
  • Nerf Peach Blossom has a slightly reduced sleep time period (clean: 260/200/160 (scaling) → 230/130/100, late: 210/170/140 (scaling) → 200/130/100).
  • Change The animations for Peach's ledge attack and swinging animation have been adjusted.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.1.0

  • Change Peach's dress physics were adjusted. It is now less likely for her animations to show visible seams or artifacts.
  • Buff Neutral attack 1 connects into neutral attack 2 more reliably.
  • Buff Forward smash has more knockback scaling when using the golf club (61/63 → 65/68).
  • Nerf Forward aerial has less knockback scaling (78 (clean)/76 (sourspot) → 74/71).
  • Nerf Back throw has less knockback scaling (95 → 88), resulting in the move KOing about 15-25% later, which on an average weight character will result in it KOing around 160% near the ledge without rage, and around 140% with max rage.
  • Nerf Peach Bomber has more ending lag if it connects (FAF 21 → 27), though the period when the drift starts remains unchanged.
  • Buff Peach Parasol's hits connect more reliably.
  • Nerf Vegetable has more ending lag (FAF 37 → 40).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 4.0.0

  • Change Walking, initial dash, initial dash turnaround and running animations have been adjusted to prevent her dress from clipping.
  • Buff Toad's counterattack connects more easily when blocking an attack from behind.
  • Bug fix Peach Parasol's late loop hits no longer use set weight, fixing a glitch that caused their position vector to last much longer than usual and launch opponents much farther if the move was interrupted.
  • Change A rare bug with Peach Parasol when self-destructing has been created where the hitboxes of the move would be misplaced as well as respawning in a shadow form.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 5.0.0

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 8.0.0

  • Buff Pummel has a larger hitbox (4.5u → 5.5u) that is placed further horizontally (Z offset: 5.8u → 6.8u), allowing it to connect more consistently.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 13.0.1

  • Buff Peach Bomber can grab edges for longer (frame 16-37 → frame 16 onwards).


  • Peach can float for 2.5 seconds.

For a gallery of Peach's hitboxes, see here.

Note: All numbers are listed as base damage, without the 1v1 multiplier.

  Name Damage Description
Neutral attack Royal Slap (ロイヤルビンタ) / Royal Round-Trip Slap (ロイヤル往復びんた) 2% Slaps the enemy twice with her leading arm: the first being an inward forehand slap, and the second being an outward backhand slap. The first hit can lock. The move is similar to her Super Slap attack in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
Forward tilt Can-Can Kick (カンカンキック) 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 and juggles.
Up tilt Royal Heart (ロイヤルハート) 10% (blast), 8% (arm) Extends her arm upward, creating a discharge of pink magic in the form of a heart. May be based on her initial appearance in Melee's intro cutscene.
Down tilt Underfoot Kick (足もとキック) 7% A low sweep kick. This move meteor smashes grounded opponents. It has very good combo potential at low to mid percents, most infamously leading into multiple fast-fallen neutral aerials performed from ground-height floats at lower percents, though many other follow-ups are possible instead.
Dash attack Lady Push (レディープッシュ) 4% (hit 1), 6% (hit 2) Creating magical sparks in her hands, Peach strikes with both arms extended forward, then quickly spreads her arms out. A relatively quick dash attack with good range that can serve as a situational KO move at higher percents.
Forward smash Peach Smash (ピーチスマッシュ) 18% (frying pan) Strikes with a bludgeon, depending on the angle of the attack: angling it upward uses a frying pan from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, angling it downward uses the tennis racket from the Mario Tennis games, and no angling uses the golf club from the Mario Golf games. 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 a strong semi-spike.
15% (golf club)
13.5% (tennis racket)
Up smash Ribbon Dance (リボンダンス) 17% (heart), 15% (arm), 12% (ribbon), 12% (late heart), 10% (late arm) Raises her arm and twirls a pink ribbon. A heart appears at the tip of the ribbon, which is where the sweetspot is located. Her head and arm become intangible for the duration of the move (frames 14-20).
Down smash Dress Edge (ドレスエッジ) 2% (hits 1-6), 3% (hit 7) Peach does a clockwise spin on her left leg and utilizes the edge of her dress, slashing multiple times.
Neutral aerial Peach Spin (ピーチスピン) 13% (clean), 6% (late arms), 5% (late body) Spins around at an angle with arms extended, dealing damage to her left and right sides. The late hit can lock. Peach's fastest aerial attack, coming out on frame 5, as well as the one with the lowest amount of landing lag. Its low base knockback, combined with its fast startup and low landing lag, make it an extremely effective combo tool, especially when combined with her floating ability and the clean hit's impressively high damage output for a neutral aerial. Despite this, the clean hit's damage output and knockback scaling is sufficient to allow for it to have decent horizontal KO potential at higher percents.
Forward aerial Crown Knuckle (クラウンナックル) 15% (crown), 14% (arm) Peach grabs the crown off her head and strikes with it in a vertical arc with red and turquoise magic sparkles emerging from it. Has the slowest startup out of all her aerial attacks, coming out on frame 16, and it also has high ending lag. However, it is also her strongest aerial if sweetspotted. Her arm possesses a sourspot that deals 1% less damage, and KOs much later.
Back aerial Sky Hip (スカイヒップ) 12% (clean), 7% (late) Peach strikes behind her by thrusting her rear. She creates a heart, although it is aesthetic, and possesses no hitbox. At low percentages, even the clean hit can lock. Due to its 40 frames of ending lag, it has the highest ending lag of Peach's aerials and is very punishable when not autocanceled or used close to the ground.
Up aerial Rainbow Bridge (レインボーブリッジ) 4% (hit 1), 6% (hit 2) Swipes above her head with her arms from left to right, creating two magic rainbow trails. A decent juggling tool, especially given the move's disjoint and power. The first hit can also be used to drag down aerial opponents, particularly after a down aerial done from a float at short hop height at lower percents. When low floating, only the second hit will hit medium to large opponents, while small characters avoid it entirely.
Down aerial Super Piston Kick (スーパーピストンキック) 2% (hits 1-3), 5% (hit 4) Rapidly kicks straight downwards four times. Depending on how the last hit lands, may launch opponents behind her. Has very low landing lag for a down aerial, and its ending lag is extremely low, allowing Peach to act just six frames after the final hit is active. It's a decent combo starter at low to mid percents if performed from a float at short hop height. Coming out on frame 12, it's rather fast for its type.
Grab Grab (つかみ) Reaches out with her arm. An average grab, though Toad appears when Peach has grabbed an opponent.
Pummel Grab Toad Punch (つかみキノピオパンチ) 1.3% Toad punches the opponent.
Forward throw Toad Rocket (キノピオロケット) 2% (hit 1), 8% (throw) Toad leaps forward, headbutting the opponent away.
Back throw Iron Hip (アイアンヒップ) 2% (hit 1), 9% (throw) Places opponent behind her and bumps them away with her rear. Toad is present, mimicking Peach's rear thrust, but he does not contribute any damage. Peach's strongest throw, and the only one that can KO at reasonable percents.
Up throw Hand Toss (ハンドトス) 2% (hit 1), 6% (throw) Puts opponent above her, and strikes them upward. Toad leaps up with Peach, but he does not hit the opponent.
Down throw Toad Drop (キノピオドロップ) 1% (hit 1), 7% (throw) After putting the opponent on the ground, Toad leaps up and headbutts them, sending them upward and behind Peach. Good for starting combos, as it can lead to her back aerial and forward tilt at low to mid percents.
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   9% While getting up, swipes forward with a hand at ground level.
Neutral special Toad 3.5% (per hit) Peach covers her ears with a terrified expression and turns away as Toad appears in front of her, arms spread out. If hit, Toad will retaliate with a spray of spores, and Peach will wince. Toad releases 6 spores, dealing 21% if all spores hit. If attacked from behind, Peach and Toad switch places.
Side special Peach Bomber 12% Peach lunges her body forward to deliver a powerful bash with her rear. Upon impact, she rebounds away from the victim, allowing for hit-and-run tactics. Deals considerable shield damage. Smash-inputting the move has her travel further.
Up special Peach Parasol 3% (first hit), 1% (hits 2-5), 2% (last hit), 2% (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.
Down special 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.
Final Smash Peach Blossom 30% (close), 20% (mid), 10% (far) Peach performs a dance, causing all of her enemies to fall asleep. The closer they are to her when she activates it, the more damage they will take and the longer they will slumber. Three giant peaches appear, healing 20%. This Final Smash fails to affect anyone outside the range of the screen borders.

On-screen appearance[edit]

  • Appears spinning out of a shower of hearts, then winks and poses with her parasol saying "Hi!".


  • Up taunt: Faces the screen, takes out, and twirls her parasol while saying "Sweet!". Possibly a reference to an idle animation in Super Princess Peach.
  • Side taunt: Dances once in a taunting manner as little music notes flutter around her while singing "La la la la laaa laaa!" in a tune similar to "Ring Around the Rosie".
  • Down taunt: Faces the screen, winks, points with her index finger in a somewhat bent posture and says "Uh-huh!" A heart will also pop up by her head.

Idle poses[edit]

  • Looks over her shoulders and brushes something off her dress.
  • Raises her arms up and stretches.
  • Adjusts her ring before raising her hand and looking at it. This idle animation only plays if Peach is currently facing right.
  • Fiddles with her hair.

Victory poses[edit]

  • Left: While motioning from right to left, she leans on her parasol. She then raises it while doing a stationary twirl, and poses with it open while resting it on her shoulder. Throughout the motioning, she says "Aw, did I win?"
  • Up: Twirls with her arms raised as hearts surround her. Afterwards, she poses with her right hand on her hip and her left hand up towards her chest while saying "This is fun!"
  • Right: Waves while walking forward, blows a kiss (in the form of a pink heart), and says "Peachy!" Afterward, she rests her right arm across her waist, and waves with her left hand.

  • Japan Eik PeachHeadSSBU.png - The second-best Peach player from Japan since 2023 who notably placed no lower than 17th at any events that year, which included 7th at Shinosuma HEROES 4, 9th at WAVE Champions 6 upsetting Kameme, and 13th at DELTA 7 [FAT]. Due to this consistency, Eik was ranked 73rd on the LumiRank 2023 despite having only competed offline for seven months.
  • Japan Kie PeachHeadSSBU.png - The best Peach player in Japan in 2019, ranking 87th on the OrionRank 2019. Although he played a variety of characters, he primarily used Peach in some of his best major runs, including 17th at EVO Japan 2020 and 25th at Umebura Japan Major 2019, and regularly placed highly at Sumabato events with Peach, including 2nd at Sumabato SP 3.
  • Mexico Leaf PeachHeadSSBU.png - A top 20 player in Mexico for most of Ultimate who has placed top 8 at many Mexican events, such as 7th at Smash Fest to the Sky and Tijuana At War 2022, and has also placed highly at a few majors/supermajors, most notably 17th at both Smash Factor 8 and Smash Factor 9.
  • USA Ling PeachHeadSSBU.pngDaisyHeadSSBU.png - One of the best Peach/Daisy players in North America who has been ranked in the top 100 for several years, peaking at 44th on the OrionRank Mid-Year 2022.

In addition, he has placed highly at several majors and supermajors, most notably 9th at both Riptide and MomoCon 2022.
  • Japan Meru PeachHeadSSBU.png - The best Peach player in Europe who was the second-best player in Europe in the first six months of 2019, placing 2nd at a multitude of notable European events, including Tech Republic IV, ICARUS V, and European SEL Clash. Since moving to Japan, he has also seen some success, including 49th at the supermajor Kagaribi 9.
  • USA MuteAce PeachHeadSSBU.png - One of the best Peach players of all-time who has been a top 50 player for most of Ultimate. He has seen several top 8 finishes at majors/supermajors, most notably 2nd at GENESIS 9, the best Paisy placement in the post-online metagame.
  • Germany RobinGG PeachHeadSSBU.png - Europe's second-best Peach player after Meru in 2019, placing top 8 at many German events and highly at other European events, including 13th at VCA 2019, 17th at Syndicate 2019, and 25th at Albion 4. Although less active outside of Germany in the post-online metagame, he is still considered the best Paisy player in Europe after Meru's departure.
  • USA Samsora PeachHeadSSBU.png - The best Peach player in the world in 2019 who was also a top 3 player during his prime. He is the only Peach player to win a major/supermajor, doing so at Shine 2019. Following controversies involving him in 2020, he has only attended a few events, albeit to lesser success.
  • Japan Umeki DaisyHeadSSBU.png - The third-best Daisy player of all-time. Although less consistent compared to MuteAce or Samsora, his major and supermajor peaks are just as strong, which includes placing 2nd at Seibugeki 12, 3rd at Umebura SP 6, and 5th at Port Priority 8.

Tier placement and history[edit]

At the beginning of Ultimate's metagame, players immediately recognized the viability of Peach and Daisy, due to having one of the best combo games in the game thanks to their down tilt, aerials, Vegetable, forward tilt, and up tilt serving as powerful combo starters to lead into difficult and technical high-damaging float cancel combos. Due to this, the princesses were considered one of the best characters in the game, which was reflected in results garnered from Samsora, MuteAce, and Umeki. Even after nerfs in subsequent patches, the two were still considered to be top tier, thanks to Samsora's explosive performances throughout 2019.

Subsequent years slightly hurt the princesses' warm reception, most notably due their perceived lower viability in the online metagame, Samsora's significantly decreased activity due to his controversies, Umeki's worse consistency in the post-online metagame, and the rise of other characters in the online metagame which proved to be difficult matchups for the princesses, such as Cloud, Mr. Game & Watch, and Sonic. On the other hand, MuteAce's results began improving as he continued to showcase how deadly the princesses' turnip combos could be, while Ling also began finding more success at a national level. As such, although no longer considered among the best characters in the game, they are still widely considered a top tier, which is reflected in their placement on the first tier list, as they are collectively ranked 9th.

The princesses' perception would only continue to improve following the release of the first tier list, as MuteAce's results continued to improve. In addition, Umeki's results became slightly more consistent again, while newcomer Eik began making waves on the Japanese scene. With better results in 2023, opinions on the character began improving ever so slightly, and as such, the princesses saw a small rise to 7th on the second tier list.

Finding Peach in World of Light

Although Peach does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, she was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (except Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.

Peach is on a desolate platform in the Molten Fortress sub-area where Giga Bowser is fought, a callback to her usual role as a damsel in distress. The player must enter the pipe and free the spirit of Aisya to activate the blue ! Switch in order to progress to Peach.

Fighter Showcase Video[edit]


  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the first Smash Bros. game where Peach holds an object, more specifically her parasol, in her character artwork.
  • Peach's pose in her official artwork resembles an official piece of artwork from her series in which she holds her parasol in a similar manner.
  • One of Peach's new victory poses resembles part of her Hole-in-One animation from Mario Golf: World Tour, albeit without the parasol.
  • There are two inconsistencies on Peach's model that were not present in her model in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U:
    • The red lace at the bottom of her dress will vanish when viewed from inside.[1]
    • Looking around her neck will expose a gap.[2]
  • Possibly due to Daisy being an Echo Fighter of her, this is the first Smash game since Melee to not include Peach's Daisy-based alternate costume.
  • Peach has the most idle poses out of the entire cast, with four as opposed to the usual two. The only other exceptions to this are Jigglypuff and Byleth, who only have one, and Steve, who has none.
  • Peach is one of five characters whose unlocking battle in World of Light is not on either Final Destination or an Ω form. The other four are Daisy, King K. Rool, Toon Link, and Mii Gunner.
  • Peach, Zelda, Falco, Olimar, Duck Hunt, and Dark Pit are the only fighters to appear as allies in spirit battles.
    • Peach appeared in two spirit battles as an ally, unlike the listed fighters that appeared in one spirit battle.
  • Peach, Corrin, Hero and Steve are the only characters who fight the same fighter multiple times in Classic Mode route; in Peach's case, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings appears as an opponent in Rounds 1 and 4.
  • This is the first game where Peach's default head icon depicts her crown as its natural gold, as all previous depictions have matched her dress' pink. She shares this trait with Zero Suit Samus.
  • Oddly, on the Sound Test, voice clips for Peach's "Aw, did I win?" victory pose are separated. The "Aw" is followed by her other victory quotes, which are followed by the "did I win?". This oddity was not present in Brawl or Smash 4.
