Peach Parasol (ピーチパラソル, Peach Parasol) is Princess Peach's up special move. Peach leaps up into the air, holding her Parasol above her. At the apex of her jump, she will open the parasol and float down gently. The parasol does damage at all times of the animation. Once in the air floating, control is similar to using the Parasol item.

While floating, it is possible to move left or right via directional influence. If down is pressed, Peach will close her umbrella, fall at normal speed, and become helpless. Pressing up again will open her umbrella and allow her to float again, although altitude cannot be regained.

The move returns in Super Smash Bros. Brawl; however, the parasol's appearance is retained from Super Paper Mario. It also allows greater vertical and horizontal recovery in Brawl than it did in Melee. Peach can still grab ledges when facing away from them, but only if her parasol is closed.

This move also returns in Super Smash Bros. 4, being mostly the same as in Brawl. However, it is now a magic attack, its knockback when opened is fixed, and Peach jumps faster and higher. Peach will now automatically close her parasol after floating for 8 seconds, and can no longer open it again once she does. Finally, the last hit of the initial jump attack has less knockback.

Customization[edit]

Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:

1. Peach Parasol 2. Parasol High Jump 3. Light Parasol

"Jump high into the air and open your parasol. Keep it open to slowly float down." "Jump into the air quickly, but you can't open your parasol." "The jump isn't very high, but opening the parasol lifts you a little bit higher."
  1. Peach Parasol: Default.
  2. Parasol High Jump: Deals no damage. It is a high jump into the air, but Peach cannot open the parasol for a slower downward descent, so she will become helpless after the jump.
  3. Light Parasol: Deals low damage. The initial jump lacks vertical recovery, but opening the parasol lifts Peach higher, which can be easier for recovering. Closing and reopening the parasol at this point lifts her higher again, and it can be performed at most seven times in a row while airborne. If the parasol is open for slightly more than a second, then she will become completely helpless.

Glitch[edit]

In Brawl, a glitch known as the parasol glitch can be performed using the Peach Parasol. It causes Peach to drift indefinitely against a wall using her Parasol.

Origin[edit]

Peach's Parasol in Super Mario RPG.

The move could be based on Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars where, to leave her room without alerting the castle guards, Peach parachutes from her second story room using her parasol. That parasol can later be used as a weapon.

Peach has otherwise been pictured with a parasol since Super Mario Sunshine, where she used her parasol as a parachute in the ending cutscene. She also used a parasol in Yoshi's Island DS, Super Princess Peach, and Super Paper Mario. Peach's parasol in Brawl and SSB4 is an exact replica of its appearance in Super Paper Mario, with its heart-shaped handle. This design was also used in Yoshi's Island DS (though the handle was not seen).

Trivia[edit]

  • In Brawl and SSB4, the parasol changes color depending on Peach's costume.
  • In Melee, if Peach is holding a Parasol, she will use that one instead of her own.
