Years after her initial appearance, Daisy started appearing in more and more Mario games because of a lack of human characters in the series.

Powers and abilities

Daisy's range of abilities can be summarized as all-around, with a certain change in each game that determines the overall style. Like other Mario characters, Daisy can punch, kick, jump, and even ground pound.
In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy has the longest hit ratio for any human player. In Mario Power Tennis, Daisy is a technical player who has two special moves. The first is called Wonder Flower, which is an offensive power shot where Daisy summons huge petals around her racket. The other is called Flowerbed Return, which is a defensive power shot where Daisy summons a bed of daisies underneath her while she is in the air.

In Mario Superstar Baseball, she is a Balanced player who leans towards Technique. She can easily hit a home run if she receives a good pitch. Daisy's special pitch and swing in Mario Superstar Baseball are both known as the Flower Ball. This technique uses flower petals to hide the ball from any opponents' eyes, giving Daisy an almost guaranteed hit or strike.
This is also displayed again in Mario Super Sluggers. For Daisy's Flower Swing, she swings around with flower petals all-about and hits the ball. Once the ball's destination is set a patch of daises pops up from the ground surrounded by a small garden-fence, blocking any players from getting in range of catching the ball. For Daisy's Flower Ball, Daisy spins and throws a ball covered in flowers.
In Super Mario Strikers, Daisy is an offensive captain. Daisy's Super Strike is called the Torpedo Strike. In this Super Strike, Daisy launches the ball at the goal, and images of daisies fly all about. In Mario Strikers Charged Daisy summons huge orange crystals from the ground. She is also capable of teleporting; the distance depends on how charged the ball is. Depending on how charged the ball is, Daisy can teleport a long distance by doing a spin in smoke. After the spin she re-appears a certain amount of length away in any direction.
In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Daisy is for the first time, a Speed character. Although she is a Speed character, her rounded technique still qualifies her for a balanced range of event handicaps. In certain game types where it is available, Daisy can use some of her flower powers to do various things such as spike the ping-pong ball, do a rapid combo attack in fencing, and others.
