Peach performing the Heart Shot

The Heart Shot is Princess Peach's Special Shot in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. To perform it, the player must tap out a triangle twice. The triangle is the common female symbol in Mario Hoops 3-on-3.

Princess Peach initiates the shot by dribbling in a triangle, with pink hearts flowing into her. If the ball is shot inside the three-pointer line, she lifts her left hand and jumps into the air and extends her arms and legs and casts the ball magically in the hoop, hearts trailing behind it. When the ball lands in, two giant hearts made of many smaller hearts appear.

If she shoots the ball outside the three-pointer line, the animation is unchanged. As usual, a teammate needs to catch it and dunk it through. The two giant hearts still appear, however.
