Baby Daisy is a human character in the Super Mario franchise created to be the infant counterpart of Princess Daisy. Her first appearance is in Mario Kart Wii as an unlockable playable character, whose debut is similar to that of Toadette in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Baby Daisy made her next playable appearance in Mario Super Sluggers, along with other baby characters such as Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach and Baby Donkey Kong, and has since continued making playable appearances in certain spin-offs.


Mario Kart series

Mario Kart Wii

Baby Daisy makes her first game appearance in the Super Mario franchise as a lightweight unlockable character in Mario Kart Wii. Like Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Peach, Baby Daisy is the infant counterpart of her adult persona, Princess Daisy. She is added to the game's roster by obtaining at least one Star Rank for all 50cc Wii Grand Prix Cups or playing 1,950 races. Baby Daisy shares the same small-sized karts as the others, but in her own personal style. In the Daisy Circuit level, there is a large golden statue of Baby Daisy in mid-air with Baby Luigi holding her. She is the staff ghost character for Moo Moo Meadows. Baby Daisy is given a decent speed bonus, weight bonus, and mini-turbo bonus, which makes vehicles like the Bullet Bike move faster than normal, perform slightly stronger mini-turbos after a drift, and weigh slightly more than usual.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Baby Daisy makes a reappearance as a playable racer in Mario Kart 8. Unlike in Mario Kart Wii, she appears as a default character. She is a lightweight character, in the group of characters that have the highest acceleration, handling, and grip but with the lowest speed and weight, alongside the other baby characters and Lemmy Koopa. When she uses the Peach Parasol for a glider, it becomes orange like her adult counterpart. This game also introduces a new emblem for Baby Daisy, being a daisy inside orange bonnet frills (previously, Baby Daisy's emblem lacked the bonnet frills and appeared identical to the emblem of her adult counterpart).

Baby Daisy returns in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the enhanced Nintendo Switch port. She now shares stats with only Baby Peach, being among the lightest characters in the game, as well as having the best handling and traction. Her signature vehicle combo is the Wild Wiggler with Wooden Tires and the Flower Glider.

Mario Kart Tour

Baby Daisy appears in Mario Kart Tour as a Normal character. Her special item is the Bubble. In the closed beta test, however, her special item was the Triple Mushrooms. As of the April–May 2021 Sydney Tour, Baby Daisy and Baby Luigi are currently the only babies that do not have an alternate variant, and is the only princess baby with this distinction.

Mario Super Sluggers

Baby Daisy makes an appearance in Mario Super Sluggers as an unlockable participant. When she is on the batting side for the team she participates in, her bat is a large baby rattle, like Baby Peach's. However, Baby Daisy's rattle is a deep yellow rather than pink, as each of the two babies' rattles corresponds to their signature colors. Since Baby Daisy is considered to be a Team Player, she has no specific special move, but can use star powers to improve the ability of her batting or pitching. Baby Daisy has good chemistry with Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Donkey Kong and Yoshi. Her special move is the same as Daisy's, the Super Dive, and she also shares the same batting and pitching; left and right.

In order for Baby Daisy to be added to the overall roster, the player has to go through the Challenge Mode process and solve the events in relation to her. In order to do this, the player has to use Yoshi to access a remote area of the Peach Ice Garden, where Baby Daisy can be found crying. In a conversation between Yoshi, Baby Daisy and, Lakitu, who translates her gibberish for him, she explains that Bowser Jr. scared her while she was playing hide and seek with Baby Peach. Consequently, this resulted in Baby Daisy losing her rattle. Despite Lakitu's attempt to pacify her, Baby Daisy continues to violently bawl. Lakitu informs the Yoshi that the only way for her to calm down is to find her rattle.

If Yoshi returns without her rattle, a separate conversation can be seen hinting where the rattle is and that Lakitu can't further translate her speaking. After Wario uses his magnet to retrieve the rattle, a delighted Baby Daisy explains that her rattle is her bat.

Upon completion of the entire criteria in relation to Baby Daisy's scenario, she is now able to join Princess Peach's team, the Peach Monarchs. Baby Daisy will also be available for the other modes at that point.

On a side note, Baby Daisy's stats are the same as Blooper's, having decent pitching and running with average fielding and weak batting.

Dr. Mario World

Baby Daisy is one of the playable, downloadable characters in Dr. Mario World (referred to as Dr. Baby Daisy), and was released on September 5, 2019 alongside Dr. Baby Mario, Dr. Baby Luigi, and Dr. Baby Peach. Her skill in both stage and versus modes changes the next capsules into matching color capsules, and it is represented by her spinning her board while the next capsule is being drawn over by a pencil to create an image of a daisy. If a rainbow capsule is one of the next capsules, it is changed into a full-sized rainbow capsule. The color of the next capsules are based on the color of the left half when it first appeared, meaning that rotating it will not affect the color change. In stage mode, four capsules are changed into matching color capsules, and in versus mode four capsules (two at level 1) are changed into matching color capsules in which the skill charges faster at higher levels. Since version 2.3.0, this skill changes the first capsule into a full-sized rainbow capsule, although the rest of the effect remains the same.

General information


Baby Daisy's clothing uses the same color scheme as her adult counterpart

With an outfit based on Princess Daisy's current design, Baby Daisy appears in a yellow dress shirt with light yellow baby bottoms and white tights. At the bottom of her shirt are two hoop designs; both orange and overlapping one-another. Baby Daisy's collar is based on Princess Daisy's original floral frills and on her footsies are a pair of red-orange dress shoes. To top the outfit off are Princess Daisy's flower brooch and golden jeweled crown. Baby Daisy's crown is large in comparison to adult Princess Daisy's and it tilts to the side of her head, but the babies are shaped in a cartoon-like manner with crowns larger than usual to correspond with the fact they're infant forms of their adult selves. Also mentionable are Baby Daisy's rosy cheeks and the round baby pacifier. She also has big, blue eyes with two thick eyelashes, like her adult counterpart. While Baby Peach's pacifier and clothing correspond to her main color scheme (pink combination), her pacifier is golden. The clothing for Baby Daisy has the same color scheme as the adult Princess Daisy's.

In Dr. Mario World, Baby Daisy wore a similar outfit to her older counterpart Dr. Daisy, barring that she retains her brooch, while Dr. Daisy lacks it.

Baby Daisy's hair is very similar to normal Princess Daisy's in both style and color. Her hairstyle consists of two parted bangs, which have one flipped end on each side of the fringe compared to adult Princess Daisy's two. Baby Daisy has neck length hair that frills-up at the end in a much shorter fashion than Princess Daisy's. Aside from these minor differences, the styles are almost identical.

Akin to her adult self, Baby Daisy is presented to be full of joy and spirit; only to a higher degree. Being an energetic and bubbly character, Baby Daisy is usually smiling and in a dancing movement. While she is fully capable of speech, Baby Daisy does not talk often, a trait shared by the other babies. In Mario Super Sluggers, all of the babies (including her) can be understood by Lakitu, but are otherwise seen as speaking incoherently in a baby talk of some kind. When Baby Daisy gets upset, she tends to do nothing but whine and due to this, she is harder to understand than usual. Eager to participate in a competition, Baby Daisy is displayed to be a joyous competitor who likes the excitement of a challenge. Her future self is considered to be a tomboyish individual and Baby Daisy sports a spunky attitude as well.

A large golden statue of Baby Luigi and Baby Daisy dancing together, similar to their adult counterparts, appears in the Daisy Circuit course of Mario Kart Wii. They share good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers, but the Mario Kart Wii official player's guide stats that Baby Luigi was frightened of her when they used to ride together due to her energetic nature. Baby Daisy has also been linked with Baby Peach by these two appearances, appearing with her in the final congratulations screen in Mario Kart Wii and playing hide-and-seek with her in Challenge Mode of Mario Super Sluggers. Though no interactions are shown, Baby Daisy has good chemistry with Baby Mario, Baby Donkey Kong, and Yoshi in Super Mario Sluggers.
