|Paper Mario move|
|Mastered by||Mario/Star Spirits/Twink|
|Effect||Breaks Bowser's Star Rod+Power Platform invincibility|
The Peach Beam is the upgraded version of the Star Beam featured in Paper Mario. This attack nullifies the enhanced invincibility of Bowser's Star Rod in Kammy Koopa's special battle arena. It is represented by an icon of Peach instead of a Star Spirit.
Normally, Mario can use the Star Beam on Bowser to remove Bowser's invincibility from the Star Rod, but Kammy's specially designed arena strengthens the invincibility, blocking the Star Beam. Peach, with some timely advice from the Star Kid Twink after their duel with Kammy, makes a wish to grant more power to the Star Spirits. This wish, along with the wishes of every friendly character in the game, gives the Spirits enough power to match Bowser's strength; this enables them to upgrade the Star Beam into the Peach Beam, which can then stop the Star Rod's power.
