“This is a Crazee Dayzee. Crazee Dayzees look cute, but you won't think they're so cute after they attack you!”
Goombario, Paper Mario

Crazee Dayzees are flower-like enemies that made their debut in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. They later appeared in the Paper Mario series and Yoshi's Island DS.

History[edit]

Yoshi series[edit]

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island[edit]

CrazeeDayzee-SMW2.png

Crazee Dayzees' first appearance is in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, where they act as minor recurring enemies throughout the game and can have either white or yellow petals. Crazee Dayzees behave identically to Shy Guys in terms of behavior, however they can survive being swallowed and spat out, unless they collide with another enemy.

Yoshi's Island DS[edit]

Crazee Dayzees reappear in Yoshi's Island DS, where they act as they did in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. They are found in many levels throughout the game, including Ba-dum BUM!, Hit the M Blocks!, Mario's Fleet Feet, Baby Mario and Baby Peach: Dynamic Duo and Donuts and Eggs.

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

Crazee Dayzees reappear in Yoshi's New Island and act as the same as they did in the previous instalments of the Yoshi series.

Paper Mario series[edit]

Paper Mario[edit]

Crazee Dayzees make their first appearance outside of the Yoshi series in Paper Mario, where they first appear as enemies in Flower Fields. They attack Mario on sight and often fight alongside Bzzaps! and Ruff Puffs. A rare variant known as the Amazy Dayzee first appears in this game, which has higher HP, and much higher attack in comparison.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door[edit]

Crazee Dayzees, along with Amazy Dayzees, make a return appearance in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In this game, they can be found along the Twilight Trail near Twilight Town. Amazy Dayzees also appear in the lower levels of the Pit of 100 Trials and alongside other enemies in Twilight Trail. A Crazee Dayzee with green petals, known as Hayzee appears as Luigi's ally. He joined Luigi on his adventure to assemble the Marvelous Compass. Hayzee is from a town of Crazee Dayzees known as Jazzafrazz Town, which the the first time that a Crazee Dayzee is shown to be an ally, rather than just a simple enemy.

Super Paper Mario[edit]

Crazee Dayzees return in the third installment of the Paper Mario series Super Paper Mario. This time, they can be found in some of the many dimensions that Mario visits throughout his journey, such as The Dotwood Tree in the Bitlands and the Land of the Cragnons. They cannot flee from the Heroes of Light, but they can still put their enemies to Sleep. Its stronger variety, the Amazee Dayzee, also returns. In the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials of room 58, Crazee Dayzees will try to ambush the player, making this almost impossible to dodge their attacks unless Dottie is used.

Characteristics[edit]

Crazee Dayzees appear to be anthropomorphic flowers. They have four purple or yellow petals circling their face. Their face always have a big smile and rosy cheeks. Their bodies are small compared to their heads, and their bodies are green. They have two small green arms, and two purple or blue feet. The legs often move rapidly when the Dayzee runs.

Traits and abilities[edit]

A Crazee Dayzee running away from Mario and leaving behind its group.

Unlike many enemies in the Mario series, Crazee Dayzees are rather timid. When in peril, they prefer to run away than face the danger. They have little physical strength, although they have enough power to push Baby Mario off Yoshi's back. In the Yoshi series, they dance and sing, but the song does not affect Yoshi, but, in the Paper Mario series, they can sing lullabies that can damage and put their enemies to sleep. Their only difference from Shy Guys in this series is that they are not defeated if swallowed and spat out, unless they hit another enemy.

Leadership and allegiance[edit]

Crazee Dazyees, unlike many enemies in the Mario series, do not appear to have an allegiance with any character or group. They are, however, allied with Kamek in the Yoshi series, who was then the leader of the Koopa Troop. In the Paper Mario series, Crazee Dayzees appear to have no allegiance, although they appear as foes in Flower Fields in Paper Mario, Twilight Trail in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and in Dotwood Tree in Super Paper Mario.

Culture[edit]

Crazee Dayzees rarely appear as allies in the series. Instead, they appear as simple enemies existing to attack the player. However, in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Luigi explains that during his adventures in the Waffle Kingdom, he came upon a town of Dayzees called Jazzafrazz Town. They live in peace, and their most important activity appears to be the Jazzafrazz Town Drama Slam, where Dayzees show off their singing and dancing skills by putting on plays. The winner of this event earns the Dramalama Plaque, which was, at least once, a piece of the Marvelous Compass. An example of an individual Dayzee is Luigi's friend Hayzee.

Log This fleet-footed flower foe is super-cute, and it sings one hypnotically sleepy lullaby.
Tattle That's a Crazee Dayzee. It may look totally cute, but it's a serious foe. What you gotta worry about is its lullaby. That tune will totally zonk you out. If you manage to guard well, though, you might not pass out. Try to learn the timing. Oh, and when its HP runs low, it runs away, so try to KO it in one fell swoop.
