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.

Character description[edit]

Princess Daisy is the ruler of Sarasaland, a country that is composed of four kingdoms (Birabuto Kingdom, Muda Kingdom, Easton Kingdom, and Chai Kingdom) and 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.

Since then, Daisy has become a recurring character featured almost exclusively in Mario spin-off games, most notably the Mario Party and Mario Kart series. 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, and her special ability is a double jump, which allows her to jump in midair.

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 caddy. Since then, Daisy and Luigi have been shown to have a close relationship in numerous instances; this has been most notably demonstrated in Mario Kart Wii's Daisy Circuit, and even outright mentioned in Daisy's trophies 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 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 even brash enough to talk down to the likes of Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Daisy trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Daisy appears as a trophy. She is also the basis for one of Peach's alternate costumes, which changes many aspects of her appearance to match Daisy's. Both Daisy's trophy and Peach's Daisy-based alternate costume are based on her classic design used from Super Mario Land to Mario Party 3.

Trophy information[edit]

Daisy
The princess of Sarasa-land, 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.

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.

Trophy description[edit]

Striker Daisy
The princess of Sarasaland and an upbeat and cheerful go-getter. She has appeared in titles ever since Mario saved her after her kidnapping by the tyrannical alien, Tatanga. Although her iconic look is a yellow and white dress, she goes with a sportier look in Super Mario Strikers to compliment her spunky scoring strikes.

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, as well as her baby self. Daisy continues to be the basis for one of Peach's costumes, while a Daisy wig is also available as a headgear for all Mii Fighter types.

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.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Daisy (Tennis Outfit)

North America 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?
Europe 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?

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

North America 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.

Daisy (Baseball) trophy in for Wii U.

The Daisy (Baseball) trophy is unlocked by hitting Sandbag 1,000m (3,280 ft.) or more in Home-Run Contest.

Daisy (Baseball)

North America 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!
Europe When it comes to baseball, Daisy, captain of the Daisy Flowers, is good at battling and even better at defence. She throws a mean fastball when she's on the pitcher's mound, and her batting special, Flower Swing, makes a garden bloom in the outfield. Who says there's no time to stop and smell the flowers in the middle of a ball game?

North America 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!
Europe This cute toddler first showed up in Mario Kart Wii. If she looks familiar, it's because she's just a baby version of Princess Daisy. Look at the determination in those huge eyes - even at such a young age, she was full of drive! And from looking at her clothes, dummy and kart, it seems her taste for orange fashion started early too!
