Princess Daisy, Fortune Street

Princess Daisy, or casually Daisy, is the princess of Sarasaland and a recurring character in the Mario franchise. She is a tomboy, something first stated in her debut appearance, Super Mario Land.[1] In accompaniment to her name, she has an affinity for flowers. Her attire, special abilities, personal emblems, and general representations are often flowers, as well. Despite being the princess of Sarasaland, she currently resides in the Mushroom Kingdom.

After an early hiatus, Daisy was reintroduced in Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 when Nintendo suggested her to Camelot, the game's developers. As Camelot had difficulty finding suitable Mario characters for the real-life sport of tennis, they liked Nintendo's suggestion since she's a human character.[2] Since then, Daisy has made recurring appearances as a playable character in most of the Mario spin-off games; including Mario Party, Mario Kart, and Mario sports titles.


Creation and development

In Super Mario Land, the developers wanted the game to take place in new worlds, far away from the Mushroom Kingdom, and so Princess Daisy was created to fill the damsel-in-distress role for the new setting, Sarasaland[3]. As Sarasaland was named after a type of floral design, Daisy was named after a flower; to match, Daisy has floral accessories in her design.[4][dead link] Despite the role she had, Daisy was given the unique description of being an energetic tomboy[1], which would continue to be one of her defining traits in her subsequent appearances.

Daisy's appearance has been revised over time. In Super Mario Land, her hair extended past her waist, her crown was red, she had black eyes and jewels, and her dress had a white waistband and dollop pattern. In NES Open Tournament Golf, Daisy sported an athletic mini-dress, wore yellow ballet flats, had blue eyes and jewels, and like Peach, she did not wear a crown. Presumably due to graphic limitations in the game, she was depicted with a blue dress in-game, and was also depicted as a blonde, although her character artwork nonetheless depicted her in her usual colors. In Mario Tennis, Daisy's hair was darkened, and she had a darker skin tone in the game's artwork. Daisy wore orange and yellow sneakers in this game, and she did not wear a crown once more; Peach did, however. In Mario Party 3, Daisy wore her full-dress and crown again. Her crown now had a yellow jewel on the front and blue jewels on the sides, and she wore orange heels. In artwork, Daisy's crown was pink and her jewels were blue. In-game, her crown was red and her jewels were green. This appearance was depicted again in Super Smash Bros. Melee; along with the rose crown and green jewels. With the graphical changes from the Nintendo 64 to the GameCube, starting with Mario Party 4, Daisy's appearance changed further and established a more unique, consistent design for her. The design reestablished Daisy's light skin-tone, replaced her hair with a shorter style and depicted her with a shorter stature; also new were the gold crown and the primary main dress design for Daisy with orange accents.


Super Mario series

Super Mario Land

Mario and Daisy in the ending of Super Mario Land

Princess Daisy makes her debut appearance in Super Mario Land. Tatanga, a space alien, invades Daisy's nation, Sarasaland, in order to marry her and make her his queen. He kidnaps Daisy, and hypnotizes all the land's inhabitants, enslaving them into his army. Mario attempts to rescue Daisy and bring peace to Sarasaland by traveling through each of the four kingdoms in pursuit of Tatanga to try and defeat him.

Throughout the game, enemies disguise themselves as Daisy to trick Mario into believing he has rescued her (specifically, the Birabuto, Muda, and Easton Kingdoms had a Fly, a Gunion, and a Kumo posing as the princess, respectively.). In the end Daisy is rescued, but Tatanga manages to escape. Daisy thanks Mario, and the two fly away in a jet.

The instruction booklet calls Daisy "Daisy Princess" on the thirteenth page, even though her official name is "Princess Daisy" (as seen elsewhere in the manual). This is likely because of the Japanese styling for Daisy's name, Deiji-hime, places the word for "Daisy (Deiji)" before the word for "Princess (hime)".

Super Mario Maker

Daisy appears as a costume in Super Mario Maker. Here, she is the only character in Super Mario Maker whose Costume Mario sprite is incompatible with her respective amiibo.[5] Instead, her costume can only be unlocked by completing the Adventure in Sarasaland event course, which was launched months before her amiibo was released. As with many other costumes, Princess Daisy uses voice clips from previous titles. Her taunt is a callback to her sprite's pose in Super Mario Land. Her course clear fanfare and death sound comes from Super Mario Land (the latter also having a voice clip over it).

Super Mario Run

Mario rescuing Princess Daisy in Super Mario Run

Daisy was added to the roster of playable characters in the version 3.0.4 update of Super Mario Run to coincide with the new addition of the Remix 10 mode. This marks Daisy's first return to the main Super Mario series of games; appearing in Super Mario Land almost 30 years prior. With the update, the Remix 10 pipe is opened, and Toad informs the player Daisy is lost within the world. The player must try to find her and help bring her back. Clearing short, consecutive courses advances Mario through spaces on a map of numbered areas. Daisy is unlocked once Area 30 is cleared; where she is found and curtsies Mario before thanking him. Daisy's special ability is the double jump, and it is unique to her. After jumping once, she can jump again in midair.

A Daisy statue of 5🌟 rarity and a Gold Daisy statue of 6🌟 rarity can be acquired by playing through Remix 10 mode and getting them from the Bonus ? Block as building items used to decorate the Mushroom Kingdom. Upon defeating Bowser in World Tour mode's World 6-4 with Daisy, she will be seen rescuing Toad instead of Peach. As with the other playable characters, Daisy can be seen wearing her own headphones when the player mutes the game's music to listen to their own.

Nintendo Comics System

Daisy and Tatanga as they appear in the comic books

Daisy also appears in the Game Boy comic books. Just as in Super Mario Land, she is Tatanga's captive, and is waiting for Mario to save her. In these comics, Daisy, Mario, and Tatanga are released from the world of video games to go on adventures in the "Real World".

Mario Golf series

Daisy has made many appearances in Mario Golf games, as one of the strongest female characters in the game. She has appeared in two Mario Golf games as a playable character but as made cameos in other games such as NES Open Tournament Golf and the scorecard of Mario Golf: Advance Tour. She didn't appear in the Nintendo 64 version of Mario Golf, however, she did appear in the tennis counterpart Mario Tennis along with Waluigi.

NES Open Tournament Golf

Daisy makes her second appearance as a supporting-character in NES Open Tournament Golf. Just as Peach does for Mario, Daisy acts as a caddy for Luigi, making comments on his golfing during play.

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour

Toadstool Tour Character
ToadstoolTour Daisy Mug.png

Star Drive 270 yards
Trajectory Draw
Height High
Impact 11
Star Impact 07
Control 07
Spin 14

Daisy makes her golfing debut in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour for the GameCube. She is playable by default, and this is the first sports game where Daisy is physically more powerful than Peach. Star Daisy can be unlocked by defeating Daisy in a Character Match VS Challenge. In Doubles Mode, Daisy and Peach are automatic partners, setting a trend for later games involving teams.

Daisy is one of the more powerful characters in the game, having a greater shot Distance than most other characters. Her shot height is also high, making it easy to recover from traps and shoot over obstacles. It does, however, make her shots more affected by the wind. She also has a good Spin, and above-average Impact. Without proper adjustments, however, she tends to slice the ball due to her below-average Control. If the player gets a Nice Shot, Daisy's ball soars through the air in a burst of flower petals.

Mario Golf: World Tour

Daisy appears in Mario Golf: World Tour as a default, playable character. She wears her sports dress as opposed to the top and shorts worn in the previous golf installment. In Castle Club mode, she appears in the Royal Room with some of the other golfers. She readily offers to play a round of golf, and she comments on the player's achievements as they compete in tournaments. Star Daisy can be unlocked by defeating her in the Forest Course character challenge, and a Daisy costume can be unlocked for use by the player's Mii by collecting all the Star Coins in the Forest Course challenges. A clothing set, golf clubs, and ball themed after her can also be unlocked for purchase at the Clubhouse.

She is again one of the more powerful characters, having a drive distance of 213 yards by default, and 270 as a star character. She also has the greatest shot height of any character, gaining an advantage when avoiding obstacles and completing certain challenge objectives, but needing extra adjustments for inclement weather. Her trajectory is also a draw, so she has that in the way of tricky shots as well. Her sweet-spot and control are average, but compared to characters with similar stats, she has either a greater distance or greater sweet-spot and control.

Mario Tennis series

Mario Tennis

Daisy's appearance at Peach's side in Mario Tennis

Daisy makes her first playable appearance in the game Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64. Daisy competes as a "Technique" type. In the intro, Daisy is seen getting along with Peach; she is also seen losing to Yoshi. She serves as Luigi's tennis partner, and Birdo serves as hers. She rarely misses when playing close to the net, and she's the most powerful "Technique" character in the game. She is seen in Nina's ending, awarding her the trophy with Peach.

In the Game Boy Color version of the game, Daisy appears as a supporting character during the game's "Exhibition Mode". Once the player is invited to "Mario World", Daisy compliments them. Daisy is shown to be close friends with Peach in this version, standing at her side in the throne room of her castle and at the Castle Court.

Mario Power Tennis

Daisy returning Mario's hit on the Hard Court for Mario Power Tennis

In Mario Power Tennis, Daisy is again a Technique type. She appears in the opening as Peach's tennis partner, and the two are default partners when in Doubles tournaments.

Daisy's Offensive Power Shot (named the Wonder Flower) disorients opponents and knocks them back if the shot is returned. The color of the petals also determines the type of shot used on the ball. Her Defensive Power Shot (named the Flowerbed Return) allows her to fly over a growing flower-bed to return any reachable shots. Like all Technique types, she has great control on the ball. She also has the best serve of a Technique character, as well as good power, speed, and lunge stats. Her reach is average, resulting in limited net-play.

Mario Tennis Open

Daisy, posing next to the Flower Cup trophy in Mario Tennis Open

In Mario Tennis Open, Daisy returns as one of the starting participants with a Technique style of play. Daisy wears an athletic mini-dress for her tennis outfit in this game. She generally retains her stats from her appearance in Mario Power Tennis. In the shop, her racket, uniform, wristbands, and shoes are available for purchase. There is also a Daisy costume that's unlocked when the player collects 700+ points in Ring Shot with another player.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Princess Daisy, as she appears in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Princess Daisy appears as a playable character in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. Unlike prior Mario Tennis games, where she was classified as a Technique character, Daisy is classified as an All-Around player, and this is the first Mario Tennis game where her shots are more powerful than Peach's. Unlike in Mario Tennis Open, Daisy reverts back to her primary, two-piece, athletic wear in this game.

Mario Tennis Aces

Princess Daisy appears as a playable character in Mario Tennis Aces, where she is still classified as an All-Around character. Like the previous installment, Daisy wears her shorts but this time she has a new pair of shoes and a wristband.

In Adventure Mode, Daisy firstly appears in the opening cutscene where Luigi, Wario and Waluigi get possessed by an ancient racket. Daisy, upon witnessing what happened, noted that Wario and Waluigi were even more suspicious than usual, and also suspected Toad of knowing something before enticing him to reveal this information. Successively, Daisy wants to help Mario to find Luigi, but Toad refuses to let her leave because according him, the mission is too dangerous for a "diplomat" and convinces her to stay in the stadium for the rest of their mission (and also citing that Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi would have used their absence to attack the stadium again). When Mario and Toad come back to the stadium and Lucien forces Mario to compete into the "Lucien Cup", Daisy and Peach face the corrupted Wario and Waluigi, who are empowered with portions of Bask's power by Aster earlier.

Unfortunately, although they defeat the pair, their victory proves short-lived when Bowser stealing Lucien. After Bowser takes his leave with Lucien and challenges Mario, Daisy makes clear that this was the main reason she hated Bowser. After Mario defeated the resulting fusion between the two, Bowcien, Wario and Waluigi expressed disappointment that they would not be able to become the best tennis players with Lucien, prompting Daisy to scold them both for not learning anything.

Mario Party series

Daisy and Peach holding a Dice Block from Mario Party 9.

Daisy makes her Mario Party debut in Mario Party 3 as a playable character (although only in Party Mode and Minigame Mode), and has appeared as a fully playable character in every game of the series since (except Mario Party Advance).

Daisy's most notable Mario Party appearance is in Mario Party 3. After the player is prompted to earn the Beauty Star Stamp, Daisy intervenes and claims to be worthy of it. She coaxes the Millennium Star into agreeing to hand her the Star Stamp by making him swoon over her, but is stopped by the outraged player. The Millennium Star then decides to settle the issue on the Backtrack Duel Board. Bowser interrupts their departure to this duel board, but is smacked by Daisy and sent flying into the distance. Daisy attempts to justify this by saying he was in her way. The group heads off to the duel board afterward. When the player defeats Daisy, she bursts into tears and flees in frustration. In the game, Daisy's default duel board partner is a Snifit.

For Mario Party 4, Daisy is one of the participants exploring the Party Cube which like previous installments included boards and corresponding minigames.


Daisy makes her only physical appearance on the Game Boy Advance in Mario Party-e as a playable character, also making an appearance in the minigame Daisy's Rodeo!, where Daisy rides and tries to stay on a mechanical bull designed to look like Bowser.

In Mario Party 6, Daisy appears in five of the Miracle Book pages: "Blooper, Ahoy", "Card Crazy", "Amp Attack", "Yoshi's Revenge", and "It Came From the Deep".

In Mario Party 7, Daisy's special Orb is the Flower Orb, which allows her to gain 3 coins for each space she passes with her next Dice Block roll, Daisy shares this orb with Peach.

In Mario Party DS, Daisy has a Character Figurine and Badge that can both be unlocked by completing Story Mode with her.

Daisy's constellation "Princess Minor".

In Mario Party 9, Daisy has a constellation called "Princess Minor", which is purchasable at the Museum for 50 Party Points.

In Mario Party 10, Daisy is playable in every mode aside Amiibo Mode due to the lack of her own amiibo when the game was released.

In Mario Party: Star Rush, Daisy has the ability to cause flower buds to bloom, an ability she shares with Peach and Toadette. Additionally, Daisy has a special Dice Block named Friendly Dice Block. In Toad Scramble, when players have Daisy in the party, she can roll a 3, a 4, a 5, or a number corresponding to the current number of allies the player has to add to the player's total roll.

Daisy returns as a playable character in Super Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch. Daisy's Dice Block is very consistent, rolling four 3's and two 4's.

Mario Kart series

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Daisy's debut appearance in the Mario Kart series was in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. In this game, Daisy is Peach's default partner, and they share the Heart, a powerful defensive item. Daisy is placed in the middle-weight category. Daisy also has a personal unlockable kart called the Bloom Coach. She also has her own course, the Daisy Cruiser, a cruiser that belongs to her, as the name suggests. The course layout involves a pool, various metal stairs, various types of rooms and a giant exhaust pipe.

Mario Kart DS

Artwork of Daisy posing with her Standard kart for Mario Kart DS

Princess Daisy reappears in Mario Kart DS, as an unlockable character. She is unlocked by getting a Gold Trophy on every cup in the Retro Grand Prix on 50cc. Daisy is once again a middle-weight character, and her three karts are the Standard DS, the Power Flower, and the Light Dancer. Daisy is the staff ghost character for the Sky Garden and Tick-Tock Clock courses.

Mario Kart Wii

Daisy racing on her personal Circuit in Mario Kart Wii

Daisy appears as an unlockable character in Mario Kart Wii, and is in the Medium weight class. She is unlocked by winning the 150cc Special Cup by getting first place or being in 2,850 races. Like Peach and Rosalina, Daisy wears a new jumpsuit outfit whenever she drives a bike. Daisy's stat bonuses are Speed +4, Handling +2, and Mini-Turbo +3, making her the fastest Medium-sized character in the game. Her childhood counterpart, Baby Daisy, debuts in this game. Erroneously, the Prima game guide for this specified installment states that Mario and Luigi saved Daisy from Tatanga in Super Mario Land, though Luigi was not present in the said game.

Daisy has her own course in the Star Cup, called Daisy Circuit, a seaside resort. Daisy is the staff ghost character for Coconut Mall and Daisy Circuit.

Mario Kart 7

In Mario Kart 7, Daisy makes an appearance as an unlockable character. She is unlocked by winning the Mushroom Cup on 150cc. She is in the "Lightweight" category, and her personal kart is the Birthday Girl; which has her flower symbol decorating its front. When she uses the Peach Parasol for a glider, it becomes orange to match her color scheme as opposed to the standard pink color. This is the only Mario Kart game where Daisy is a lightweight.

Daisy also has her own course in Mario Kart 7 called Daisy Hills, which is part of the Mushroom Cup. Additionally, Daisy Cruiser reappears as a retro course in the Leaf Cup. Daisy's bonus stats are high in "Acceleration" and "Off-Road", but lower in "Speed" and "Weight".

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

In Mario Kart 8, Daisy returns as a starting character for the first time since Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. She retains her jumpsuit from Mario Kart Wii for when she uses bikes and ATVs, but will only wear her standard dress when using karts. Like the previous game, the Peach Parasol becomes orange when she uses the glider. Unlike other games, Daisy doesn't own any course, although Sweet Sweet Canyon, Royal Raceway and Baby Park make clear references to her persona.

Daisy is one of the lighter middleweights with her stats being tied with those of Peach and Yoshi. She is also the Staff Ghost for Moo Moo Meadows. When selecting her as a player on the Grand Prix mode, Waluigi and Peach will compete with her as main rivals.

Daisy is also one of the major influences for one of the sponsors, Princess Orange, which not only has a name suggestive of Daisy but features her flower emblem as part of the logo. Aside from this, Daisy appears on two of the Women of Racing Organization posters, appearing both times alongside Peach, and with Birdo on one of these. She is also referenced in the Peach and Daisy Royal Patisserie, with the logo being a combination of the princesses' crowns.

Daisy returns in the Nintendo Switch port Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. She once again shares stats with Peach and Yoshi. The Sweet Sweet Kingdom has her emblem engraved on the track, and a portrait of her can be seen inside the castle.

Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

Daisy also appears in the arcade-exclusive Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, as a downloadable character. Here she is a cruiser type character, with average stats, tying with Mario, Luigi and Pac-Man.

Mario Kart Tour

This section is referring to a subject in an upcoming or recently released game. When the game is released, or more information about this subject is found, this section may need major rewriting. This template should be removed after a month has passed since the game was first released.

Daisy reappears as a playable character in Mario Kart Tour, where she is available as a Super character. The Heart returns as Daisy's special item, as it does for Peach.

Super Smash Bros. series

Peach's alternate costume in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U featuring Daisy's color scheme

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Daisy first appears in the Super Smash Bros. series with Super Smash Bros. Melee. She appears as a non-playable character in the form of an unlockable trophy. The trophy is available in both the Lottery and Regular Match in all three modes at various areas of the game. The trophy depicts her appearance from Mario Party 3. The trophy's description states that she appeared in Mario Golf for Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color, though she actually appeared in Mario Tennis for those systems. Additionally, her trophy has a third eye on the back of her head, visible only by zooming in; this was removed in later versions of the game.

Additionally, Daisy's color scheme is available for use by Peach as an alternate costume. Although the palette also appears in all future installments prior to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, this one includes Daisy's floral motif on the costume as well as her tanned skin and wrist length gloves. Because the All-Star Mode character trophies utilize alternate palettes to represent the trophies, Daisy's color scheme was used for Peach's All-Star Mode trophy. Aside from this, her in-game depiction in NES Open Tournament Golf was partly used for another alternate costume of Peach's, more specifically her blue alternate costume.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Daisy appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl in the form of a trophy and two stickers. Daisy's trophy is modeled after her Mario Strikers Charged appearance. The trophy's description states that her iconic look is a yellow and white dress, despite not having it since the Nintendo 64 era. Her stickers use artworks from Mario Party 7 and Super Mario Strikers. The Mario Party 7 sticker is large and gives +27 attack to leg attacks, and is usable by Peach and Zelda. The Super Mario Strikers sticker's size is medium, gives +5 attack to leg attacks, and is usable by all characters.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Luigi along with a Mii Fighter resembling Daisy.

Princess Daisy makes appearances in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with different trophies of her in each version. In the 3DS version, Daisy's trophy depicts her in her tennis outfit from Mario Tennis Open. She is also mentioned in Wendy O. Koopa's trophy information, where it is stated that Wendy sees her as a rival. In the Wii U version, she has three different trophies. One is based on her standard appearance in her yellow and orange dress, dedicated to her debut in Super Mario Land and her first playable appearance in Mario Tennis. Another trophy is based on her appearance in the Mario Baseball series in her sports outfit. The third depicts her appearance as Baby Daisy. It should also be noted that Daisy has the largest amount of trophies (four) than any other non-playable character featured in this iteration of the Super Smash Bros. series.

Additionally, a Daisy wig can be unlocked as an accessory for Mii Fighters.

Daisy's appearance for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
SmashWiki article: Daisy (SSBU)

Daisy appears for the first time in a Super Smash Bros. game as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, announced during the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct. In the game, she is an "Echo Fighter" — one of seven designated fighters whose attacks and animations are derived from other fighters. In this case, Daisy is Peach's Echo Fighter; like certain other Echo Fighters (namely Richter and Dark Samus), Daisy's gameplay differences are barely noticeable, though she has several aesthetic differences, such as different animations for standing and running, and floral effects replacing Peach's heart effects. As a byproduct of being directly based on Peach, she performs moves that she has never used so far in the Mario series, such as the Floating Jump, and uses a Blue Toad for all her grabs as well as her standard special move. Like Peach, she plucks Vegetables from the ground for her down special move, which have varying damage outputs depending on their faces, with the small chance of plucking a Bob-omb or Mr. Saturn.

Like Rosalina, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings, Daisy's voice clips in this game are recycled from various Mario games; for example, Daisy's on-screen appearance, floor attack, forward smash attack, and light knockback voices are taken from Mario Kart 8, the scream when she is hit by Shells in Mario Kart Wii is used when she is KO'd, and her falling scream from Mario Party 9 is used when she is star KO'd.

In the World of Light story mode, she is recruited at Dracula's Castle.

Daisy's Mii wig from the previous game returns, and is now available from the start.

Daisy is one of the two newcomers in this game without an introduction tagline (similar to Dark Pit in the previous game), with the other being Inkling. She is also the only newcomer in this game without a dedicated reveal video, as she was simply shown during the presentation about Echo Fighters in the Nintendo Direct.

Classic Mode route

Daisy's Classic Mode route has her battle princesses or any other form of female nobility, with the exceptions being Master Hand and Crazy Hand.

Mario Baseball series

Mario Superstar Baseball

Replay of Daisy in Mario Superstar Baseball achieving a Perfect hit at the batter's plate

Daisy appears in Mario Superstar Baseball, where she is a Balanced player. Daisy appears in Challenge Mode as the secondary Team Captain on Peach's team. Daisy shares good chemistry with both Peach and Luigi, while she shares bad chemistry with Waluigi and Petey Piranha. Daisy's Star Pitch, the Flower Ball, allows her to throw a gust of flower petals that hide the ball from the batter when Daisy is pitching.

As a Star Swing, the Flower Ball flies at a higher distance than normal and is masked by flower petals. In the game's Challenge Mode, Daisy is able to use this move once the player has purchased the Pretty Flowers power-up. Daisy's special talents are the Quick Throw and Sliding Catch. Her best stat is pitching with decent batting and average fielding, but is a bit slow.

Mario Super Sluggers

Daisy countering a pitch thrown from Mario in the Mario Super Sluggers opening

Daisy appears again as one of the Team Captains in Mario Super Sluggers. Daisy still shares chemistry with Peach and Luigi, but now also shares chemistry with Birdo. The Daisy Cruiser returns, but this time as a baseball stadium. Daisy's special swing and pitch are based off flower abilities in this installment as well. Baby Daisy also appears in this installment. Her batting and pitching stats remain unchanged, while her fielding was greatly improved and her running was slightly improved, although her stamina is average and not as great as Birdo or Peach's.

Daisy is available from the start overall; however, like the majority of initially unlocked characters, she still has to be added to the roster in Challenge Mode. In this mode, she is on Peach's team (the Peach Monarchs). To unlock her, the player needs to fix the fountain in Peach Ice Garden and replace Daisy, who was transformed into a statue by Bowser Jr., with a normal Toad statue. When rescued, she thanks the player and tells them that she was taking a stroll when Bowser Jr. cast a spell on her and that she doesn't remember anything afterward. She then joins the team.

In Exhibition Mode, Daisy is the Team Captain for the Daisy Flowers. The icon for this team includes Daisy's crown, along with a floral wreath used as the border around it. Finally, her Mario Super Sluggers baseball card lists her Rookie Year as 1990, but her debut appearance, Super Mario Land, was released in 1989; 1990 instead refers to its PAL releases. This set of cards doesn't refer to her as a princess, even if she actually is one.

Mario Strikers series

Super Mario Strikers

Daisy showing off for a victory

Daisy is introduced to the Mario Strikers series in the first installment, Super Mario Strikers. In this game, Daisy wears an orange number "9" jersey. She possesses the ability to perform her Super Strike called Torpedo Strike

Mario Strikers Charged

Daisy's second uniform in Mario Strikers Charged

Princess Daisy also appears in Mario Strikers Charged, now with an alternative teal-colored uniform that she uses if the opposition wears a similarly colored uniform to her primary orange uniform, both of which retain the number 9 she had on her original uniform in the first installment. This time, Daisy is a defensive-type captain with high Movement (which affects her movement speed) and Defense (which determines her defensive capabilities on the field) but low Shooting and Passing ability. Like the other captains, Daisy has a personal Super Ability and Mega Strike.

Her Super Ability is Crystal Smash!, which covers the surrounding ground with sharp orange crystals, blasting away anyone in the range, while her Mega Strike involves her shooting into the air and generating a crystal gauntlet on one of her arms, which she uses to punch the ball towards the goal. In the game's Striker Challenge Mode, Daisy faces against both Peach and Waluigi. She battles Peach to take the Star Cup championship, and she takes on Waluigi to see if she can get the Brick Wall award for an unprecedented fifth straight year.

Yakuman DS

In Yakuman DS, Daisy appears as one of the unlockable characters, and she is a normal opponent. Statistically, she has high luck, low defense and moderate attack, speed, and skill. Daisy never melds her tiles unless it is a "closed kan". She is the Rank 10 opponent faced in Ranking Mode.

Mario Hoops 3-on-3

Profile artwork of Daisy for Mario Hoops 3-on-3

Daisy made her second Nintendo DS appearance in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. Daisy is a Technical player. Daisy's Special Shot is the Flower Shot, which lets Daisy hover in mid-air to kick the ball in the hoop. The flower shot is activated by tapping a vertically flipped triangle. Daisy has her own stage known as Daisy Garden.

Daisy returns in the sequel, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, also for the Wii and DS. She returns as a Speed type and has the Flower Trampoline technique in both versions as well as a Flower Dash technique in the DS version. Following a trend from previous installments, Daisy and other female characters sport a new outfit specifically for the winter games.

In the Wii version, there are a number of items available for purchase relating to Daisy. Players can buy two decals of Daisy, one winter and one of her regular appearance. Also available is a set of Daisy banners; all of these items can be used to personally decorate event equipment. Like other characters, a Daisy Suit is available for purchase for a Mii to wear; it increases speed and acceleration.

Daisy once again returns as a playable character in the third installment, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, in both the Wii and DS versions. She reappears in the summer outfit she used in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games while debuting in her swimming suit.

There is a Daisy costume for the player to unlock and use on their Mii. Daisy also has her own sticker in the London Party Mode.

Daisy reappears in the fourth installment of the Mario & Sonic series, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. She returns in her winter outfit first seen in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

Daisy reappears in the fifth installment of the Mario & Sonic series, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, once again as a Speed type character.

Story Mode

In the DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, the Adventure Tours mode features Daisy as a key character in thwarting Bowser and Eggman's evil plans. She is first found in Blizland, where the player must use Blaze to defeat her in Ultimate Figure Skating. Afterwards, she competes in a minigame in Ice Peak to protect an affectionate Chao's Freezalea patch from a wild Kiki.

Daisy is later used to complete two missions run by Lakitu: Short Track and Intense Short Track. Lakitu requests Daisy to boost crowd appeal, and he offers the Meteor Curling Stone as a reward; the Meteor Curling Stone is used to complete the game's final missions, including the boss battle with Bowser and Eggman. Once the final battle is won by Mario and Sonic, every character chimes on their

hand in victory, with Daisy stating her complete doubt that they'd lose to misfits like Bowser and Eggman.

In the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Daisy is part of the Girls group. Prior to the day of the Games and Bowser and Eggman shrouding London in fog, Daisy checks on Peach, Amy, Blaze, and several Toads to see how they were faring with the stamps for the athletes' invitations, which they were behind on. Daisy mentions that she plans to head to a boutique, tempting Amy into procrastinating and joining her. Peach suggests that they settle this over an event; if she beats Daisy, she stays behind to help, and if Daisy beats her, Amy can go with her. Peach ends up beating Daisy, and she agrees to help the group with the invitations, eventually sending them to everyone except Bowser and Eggman, due to a mishap.

On the morning of the Games, Daisy wanders through the foggy Hyde Park, wondering where everyone is. She runs into Amy, and eventually they both run into foggy versions of Peach and Blaze, who challenge Daisy and Amy to an event. The duo emerges victorious, only to be ambushed by an army of Peach and Blaze clones afterward. Daisy and Amy are later found, collapsed on the ground, but unhurt. They help the rest of the crew clear Hyde Park of the fog.

Mario Sports Mix

In Mario Sports Mix, Daisy appears again as a Technical character. Daisy's technique is maxed out, while her speed and power are below average. Daisy's central abilities are her flower-oriented abilities, through which she can make gardens complete with fences and cover her hands in flowers in a similar manner to pompoms to block and attack projectiles.

Daisy also shows off incredible flexibility in her spin attack and is given an alternate outfit called Tennis-wear. It is unlocked by clearing the proper Flower Cup mission, or by using Daisy 40 times in matches. Daisy Garden also makes a return from Mario Hoops 3-on-3, and can be played in all sports except Volleyball (with the exception of a special mission).

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

While Princess Daisy doesn't appear physically in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, she makes a cameo in an extra Battle Card obtained from the Peach amiibo, alongside Peach and Rosalina. Although just a cameo appearance, this is Daisy's first appearance in a game other than a Mario sports or Mario Party title since Super Mario Land.

Mario Sports Superstars

For Daisy's involvement in Mario Sports Superstars, she is a Technique type character in most sports giving her an edge in aspects such as shot accuracy and horse control. However, in tennis, she is an All-Around type player as in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. In golf, her default drive is 218 yards, and her shots travel very high in a draw trajectory. Aside from in tennis and golf, Daisy wears her usual sportswear. In those sports, Daisy instead wears her miniskirt from Mario Tennis Open and Mario Golf: World Tour.

Dr. Mario World

Daisy was added to the roster of playable characters along with Wario and Waluigi on 7th August 2019, just like every other playable doctor she can be obtained randomly in the Staffing menu of the game, her special ability allows her to eliminate a specific object chosen by the player by tapping the object in question. For this game Daisy has received a new outfit which features a yellow lab coat with short sleeves, a white shirt, an orange skirt and a pair of white heels.

Other appearances

Video games

Daisy appearing on the results screen in Mario Kart Arcade GP 2

Daisy makes a single cameo appearance in the bottom-left corner of the results screen of a finished Cup in both Mario Kart Arcade GP and the sequel, Mario Kart Arcade GP 2.

While Princess Daisy herself does not appear in Mario Golf: Advance Tour, her crown appears in the Locker Room at Marion Clubhouse. Daisy's crown is mistranslated as Diddy's crown in the English language versions of the game; this mistranslation occurred despite the fact it is in the women's Locker Room, and Diddy's cap can be found in the men's Locker Room.

Daisy's crown appears as a collectible in StreetPass Mii Plaza and as one of the characters in the Mario Tennis Open Puzzle Swap picture.

A Daisy-themed costume is featured in the Wii U port of Bayonetta.[6] It is similar to the Princess Peach costume, but it features a mini Luigi plush decoration instead of a Mario one. This costume can also be unlocked in Bayonetta 2.

Daisy is featured as one of the Mario-themed character skins in the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack included with Minecraft.

A Daisy costume appears in Miitopia, which can be unlocked scanning her amiibo.

A Daisy-themed Yoshi is present in the 3DS version of Yoshi's Woolly World, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. It's possible to unlock the costume scanning her amiibo.

Although Daisy does not appear in Super Mario Odyssey, she is given a brief mention when scanning the Daisy amiibo in while talking to Uncle Amiibo. He will mention that Daisy is looking for clues on the Power Moon locations.

Promotion and merchandising

Princess Daisy has been featured in many sets of collectibles for the Mario Series. Many mini-figures have been released as well as a small amount of larger figurines.

The Super Mario series Daisy amiibo

In her initial release for Super Mario Land, a set of mini figures were released for the game, and Daisy got one of herself depicting her original design.[7] A Mario Party 7 set of 4cm vinyl figures were released in 2005; each of the playable characters in the games were featured.[8] Released in 2008, Daisy was featured in a group of six characters for the release of the 4-inch, series 2, vinyl, Super Mario figures by PopCo Entertainment.[9] For volume 2 of the Furuta Super Mario Bros candy toys, Daisy was featured with her own mini-figure.[10] This series of figures were shipped inside chocolate covered eggs, which needed to be opened and eaten to receive the toy inside. Daisy was featured in the BanPresto Super Mario Volume 2 Set of 6 PVC Figure Keychains.[11] Daisy has also had a number of figures for the Mario Kart series, including a figure for Mario Kart DS[12], and multiple figures for Mario Kart Wii[13], including a pull-back bike figure.[14] She was also featured in the Super Mario Chess set as the second bishop on Mario's team, alongside Princess Peach. She was featured in the second series of Super Mario K'Nex blind-bagged figures as the rare, being limited to two per case.[15] She was featured in the Sanei Super Mario line of plush dolls in 2013 as well as the Super Mario All-Stars line in 2015. Daisy was depicted in one of the playing cards for the Mario hanafuda cards released in 2015.[16] Daisy has two amiibo figurines; a Super Mario series amiibo, that was revealed during E3 of 2016, and was released alongside Mario Party: Star Rush and a Super Smash Bros. series amiibo, that was initially revealed at the November 2018 Super Smash Bros. Direct and released in April of 2019.


Daisy on the back of Super Mario Land OST

Many of the songs from the Super Mario Compact Disco revolve around lyrics dealing with or relating to Daisy. The song Save Me (With Your Charm) actually states in the beginning that it is Daisy singing,

Yo, this is Princess Daisy

You're listening to Super Mario Compact Disco

Kick it

Daisy was also mentioned in the songs Super Mario Land, Radio Compact Disco 4, Super Mario USA, and Six Golden Coins. Most of these mentions related to a love interest between Mario and Daisy, Daisy being captive, or Daisy being rescued. The song lyrics make several errors in relation to the games, however.

Aside from the Super Mario Compact Disco, Daisy had her own song on the Super Mario Land [single]. On the Japanese release, the song was titled Daisy's Mix, but on the United Kingdom release it was titled Daisy's Breakdown. On the Super Mario Land OST released only in Japan, Daisy had her own song titled Oh! Daisy (Princess Daisy Theme).

Manga and comics

Daisy in 4-koma strip

Daisy appears in a 4-koma strip of Super Mario-Kun with Mario and Peach. Peach yells at Mario and throws a mushroom at him, jealous of the relationship between him and Daisy. In the third volume, Daisy is the sender who delivers Mario a "Marine Pop". In volume 26, she appears on Luigi's imagination.

General information

Daisy's current appearances

Daisy is portrayed as a tomboy with an extroverted personality and tough demeanor. She can be described as energetic, loud, cheerful, and confident. In the song Save Me With Your Charm, she was shown to speak with a British accent, although in later appearances, when speaking, she uses American slang and has a twang to her voice. She also has a sassy side, often regarded for her wittiness and attitude. Unlike Peach, Daisy is not as proper or poised as she would be based on her appearance and status as royalty; such as standing with her hands on her hips, exhibiting hotheadedness in defeat, showboating in victory, and showing off to get her way. It has been suggested her choice of colors could reflect her personality[17], with orange being her favorite[18]. She likes to go shopping and dine at fine restaurants, but gladly passes up such enjoyments to train instead.

Daisy is also portrayed as a champion. In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, she seems to be an expert on skating sports; at the point, she was the only one who managed to beat Lakitu's missions. In Mario Strikers Charged, she won the Brick Wall Award for four consecutive years, and five after beating her challenge. In Mario Party 3, she said that she had never lost before, not even with her father.

Daisy has claimed to have bad luck and timing. She tripped off stage while receiving her trophy in Mario Tennis, she needs help after becoming lost in the Remix 10 pipe in Super Mario Run, and admits to being absentminded while waiting for her turn in Fortune Street.

Daisy will use her charms and tough temper to get what she wants. In Mario Party 3, she flirts with the Millennium Star to get the Beauty Stamp, and she swats Bowser into the sky when he gets in her way.

In Super Mario Strikers and Mario Strikers Charged, her personality is heightened. She celebrates scoring by showboating; throwing herself on the ground as she pumps her arms, brushing her shoulders off, and making a sizzling sound as she presses a finger to her backside. She responds to opponents scoring by trying to hide her injuries, and she crosses her arms and taps her foot disapprovingly at her teammates, who cower in response to her wrath. In Mario Tennis Aces, she largely has the same personality traits as before, although she does show some lack of confidence after witnessing Lucien's possessing Wario, Waluigi, and Luigi, even believing they may not even be able to beat Lucien due to its powers. She also showed some common sense, as she immediately suspected Toad knew more than he let on about Lucien and demanded he tell the truth, and later scolded Wario and Waluigi for even considering getting Lucien again after Mario beat Bowcien, especially after what happened to them earlier.

In Fortune Street, Daisy's personality is more heavily explored with the robust amount of dialogue among characters. She is shown to be impulsive and excitable, eager to take on big challenges and try new things; like scaling the Colossus and riding the flying train at the Observatory. She considers becoming a professional athlete when tasked to pick a new trade in Alltrades Abbey, and she repeatedly remarks on wanting to take home cute creatures like Yoshi and Slime to have as pets. Daisy is shown to be domineering and direct to others, teasing and bossing Luigi around when his shops are not large enough. She also talks down to enemies like Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser, refusing to congratulate their success and criticizing their shops, believing they would use foul play. The same game also shows she's not above pitching a fit or forcing others to pay up to allow her to get an expensive item at her request, based on some of her comments. It's also hinted in her bio for Mario Party 3 as well as her comments to Birdo that she is a bit vain regarding her appearance.

Physical description

Daisy has blue eyes, fair skin, an average build, and orange hair. During her Super Mario Land and Nintendo 64 game installment appearances, her hair was long, extending past her waist; her current and standard design starting with the Gamecube Mario installments has her hair at shoulder length. [19] Daisy is sometimes depicted with darker, Titian hair, and slightly tan skin. Additionally, Daisy is described as being very young, and her neotenic features match this description.[20] She has round cheeks, a button nose, thin, orange-colored lips, and large, round eyes with two thick, black lashes on the sides. Her hair is long with a flipped style and parted bangs. She has an average weight and height compared to other Mario characters, being shorter than Peach but taller than Luigi, and generally being in the middle of weight classes in the Mario Kart series.[21]

Daisy is represented by the colors yellow, orange, and green. Daisy usually wears a yellow, floor-length gown with white and orange accents. The details of the dress include puffed sleeves with white, petal-shaped openings, a white, petal-shaped collar, orange panniers at her waist, and orange frills at the opening of her dress. Her accessories include short, white gloves with petal-shaped openings, orange heels, a gold crown with red jewels on the sides, flower-shaped earrings, and a flower-shaped brooch; her jewelry is coordinated with green gems and white, petal-shaped rims.

Alternate outfits

Daisy in her standard athletic wear.

In NES Open Tournament Golf, she wore a sundress that's similar overall to her usual dress, although it had a miniskirt, and she lacked a crown. In-game, however, she was depicted as wearing a blue dress as well as blonde, presumably due to graphic limitations.

For Daisy's official re-entry into the Mario series overall in Mario Tennis (N64), Daisy wears a tennis outfit similar to Peach's; however, the design itself matches Daisy's classic main dress that she wore since her debut in Super Mario Land. Aside from this, she also wore a variation of this dress that had the yellow and white colors being replaced with lavender and dark purple, respectively, when used in Short Game mode for Mario Tennis. When the Gamecube Mario installments came around, however, her modern/current sports attire started to make their debut appearances as well. Daisy's primary athletic wear is a two-piece outfit, introduced in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. It includes a yellow tank top with her flower brooch, orange shorts, and tennis shoes with socks. Daisy appears in this more often than any other outfit, including her usual gown. In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, she wears an outfit similar to her regular athletic outfit; the tank top now has white accents on the sides and bares her midriff, while the shorts are a bit darker and come with yellow accents.

She also has an athletic miniskirt, introduced in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. It is a yellow skirt with two orange accents at the bottom resembling the ruffles on her usual gown. This outfit was first an unlockable alternative to her two-piece athletic wear and was used as her primary athletic wear in Mario Tennis Open and Mario Golf: World Tour for the Nintendo 3DS.

In Super Mario Strikers, Daisy wears a two-piece soccer uniform. In Mario Strikers Charged, she dons added armor to the outfit due to the game's intensity. The uniform includes numerous flower patterns and is available in two colors. The first is mostly orange while the alternate is mostly green. Daisy's soccer number can be found on the back of her chest-plate. Daisy appears in this outfit for her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Daisy wears a jumpsuit when riding motorbikes instead of karts, and also on ATVs in the latter two titles. Daisy's jumpsuit is white with yellow as a secondary color. It includes a yellow scarf and a yellow heart graphic on the back. It features white-rimmed yellow elbow-length gloves, similar to Princess Peach's regular gloves, and matching knee-high boots in yellow with white trim and soles.

In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Daisy wears an outfit more suited for cold weather. The outfit is a yellow mini-dress with an orange shrug and orange tights with vertical white stripes on both sides. White gloves and ankle boots with a yellow bottom are included.

In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Daisy wears a yellow leotard with orange lining on either side that also functions as a swimsuit; she is seen wearing this for the gymnastic and aquatic events in these installments.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, similar to Princess Peach, although technically not an alternate outfit, Daisy's standard dress was modified to feature gold, flame-like designs as well as silk extensions near the bottom of her skirt, plus similar flame-like designs near her brooch, as well frills at the front of her skirt that split down the legs, flame-like designs near these frills, as well as pink and red portions of the bottom portions of the skirt, plus a silk front near the brooch. She was also shown to have slight flower patterns on her gloves. She also had seven different colorizations of her dress, including one that was primarily green with yellow panniers and a reddish-purple center in her flower brooch and earrings, as well as the forward jewel of her crown (reminiscent of Princess Peach's appearance in the main menu of NES Open Tournament Golf); a pink dress with red panniers and purple centers for her brooch and earrings; a blue dress with purple panniers as well as a dark green center for her various jewelry (reminiscent of Daisy's appearance in the main menu of NES Open Tournament Golf); a red dress with gray panniers, black frills and gloves, and brown jewels; a violet dress with light blue panniers and magenta jewels (reminiscent of Daisy's alternate costume in Mario Tennis), and an all-white dress with gray jewelry (referencing a wedding dress and complimenting Peach's white alternate costume); and a black dress with green panniers as well as amber jewelry (resembling her in-game monochromatic appearance in Super Mario Land).

Powers and abilities

Overall, Princess Daisy is an all-around or technique character in sports games. In Mario Superstar Baseball, she is a Balanced player who leans towards Technique, and in Mario Power Tennis, she is a purely Technical player. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games was the first time Daisy was classified as a Speed player, but even then, her rounded technique still qualified her for a balanced range of event handicaps. Like other Mario characters, Daisy can punch, kick, jump, wall kick, and ground pound, as well being able to jump in midair in Super Mario Run. She has also been occasionally shown to have a strong swing, having the longest non-star drive of any human player in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour.

Daisy executing her "Flower Swing" in Mario Super Sluggers

Most of Princess Daisy's abilities and powers use some sort of flower-related effect, either as a visual side-effect or an active part of the technique. These often take the form of making petals appear, ranging from her Flower Ball abilities in Mario Superstar Baseball, which use petals to obscure the ball from the opponents' view, to her offensive Mario Power Tennis move Wonder Flower, giving her hits special powers determined by the color of the petals surrounding her racket, to the simple visual flair they bring to her Mario Hoops 3-on-3 Flower Shot. In Mario Golf: World Tour, one of her victory animations even features her changing from her tennis outfit into her gown in a flurry of petals. In other games, she can summon entire flowers from the ground, such as a garden fence and a patch of daisies to block other players from catching the ball hit with her Flower Swing in Mario Super Sluggers, or the bed of daisies appearing beneath her during her defensive Mario Power Tennis Flowerbed Return.

Daisy executing her "Torpedo Strike" in Super Mario Strikers

In Super Mario Strikers, Daisy is an offensive captain. Her Super Strike is called the Torpedo Strike, and once more involves flower visuals behind her. However, in the sequel, Mario Strikers Charged, Daisy is a defensive captain instead, and is uniquely associated with crystal summoning abilities, having them erupt from the playing field for her Crystal Smash! Super Ability, and encasing her own fist in them to punch the ball towards the goal during her Crystallized Daisy Mega Strike.

In Mario Party 3, she was shown to have enough physical strength to effortlessly send Bowser flying into the sky with a single slap.



Daisy and Luigi in NES Open Tournament Golf

One of Daisy's closest relations is with Luigi. In NES Open Tournament Golf, Daisy is seen as Luigi's caddie and Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour shows Luigi and Daisy golfing alongside Peach and Mario. In her Mario Power Tennis victory scene, Daisy says, "Thanks, sweetie," to Luigi, and he gawks at her skating prowess. Also, in the Mario Baseball series, Luigi and Daisy share good chemistry. One of the most known references to their relationship occurs in Mario Kart Wii, where there is a giant, golden statue on Daisy Circuit that shows the two holding hands and dancing together, along with another of them as babies. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Daisy's trophy states: "After her appearance in Mario Golf, some gossips started portraying her as Luigi's answer to Mario's Peach". Their team names from the Mario Party series include, "Steady Sweeties" and "Tango Tanglers". In Fortune Street, Daisy sounds harsh with Luigi when she lands on a cheap shop. She says she feels disappointed and thinks he can do better: "Luigi, Luigi, Luigi... I'm disappointed! You could make this shop so much bigger!" Daisy and Luigi are seen walking together in Mario Party: Island Tour. The official Mario Party 4 guide states that Luigi has a crush on Daisy.[page number needed] In Mario Tennis Aces, Daisy is shown to be worried for Luigi when he disappears with Wario and Waluigi after being corrupted by Lucien, telling Mario "Please... just bring Luigi back safely!"

LINE sticker of Peach and Daisy

Along with Luigi, Daisy's other closest friend is Princess Peach. Daisy is often initially partnered with Peach in spin-off installments for the Mario series. The two share a team orb, the Flower Orb, in Mario Party 7 and share a team item, the Heart, in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. Daisy and Peach share good chemistry in the Mario Baseball series, and Daisy is also on Peach's team in the Challenge Mode of Mario Super Sluggers. In Fortune Street, Daisy is encouraging Peach when she's going to win: "I'm lovin' the girl power, Peach! Win this one for the ladies!" Mario Power Tennis's website says that Daisy is Peach's "sister in arms". Her bio from the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games says she makes plans to go shopping with Peach in her downtime. In the Prima guides for Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii, Daisy is incorrectly stated to be Peach's cousin[22], a claim that has not been confirmed by Nintendo. Prior to her official return in Mario Tennis and by extension the start of Peach and Daisy's friendship, a 4-koma segment of the manga Super Mario Kun depicted Daisy as being a rival of Peach, with the latter being jealous enough of Mario giving Daisy constant attention that she threw a mushroom at him in anger.

Daisy and Mario are also shown to be friends. After Mario rescues Daisy from Tatanga in Super Mario Land, she gives him a kiss, but since then, Mario and Daisy have not shown any particularly friendly interactions until Mario Tennis Aces. In Mario Party 6, Mario and Daisy are given the team name "Nice Couple" when paired together, while they have neutral player chemistry in Mario Superstar Baseball or its sequel. In Mario Tennis Aces, she offered to come with Mario to help him save Luigi, and also was the first to tell them about the flier. In addition, she also made clear that Mario beat Lucien anyway despite the racket's fearsome powers when reminding Waluigi and Wario about how the greedy duo caused disaster from the last time they tried to get Lucien.

Birdo appears to be a good friend of Daisy. In Fortune Street Daisy shares a friendly joke with Birdo when the latter is close to victory or Daisy swaps shops with her: "I'd give you a blue ribbon for first place, Birdo, but somehow I think you'd prefer a pink ribbon! Hee hee!". They show good chemistry in Super Mario Sluggers, and in Mario Party 8 their team name is "Gallopin' Gal Pals". In Mario Tennis, Birdo is Daisy's Doubles Partner. She also was seen partnering up with Rosalina for the tennis bout in Mario Sports Superstars, hinting at good ties between them.

Daisy is also shown to to be great friends with Amy Rose and Blaze the Cat from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. She and Peach are seen next to them in the opening of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games with she and Blaze bonding in Ultimate Figure Skating. In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, she and Amy are often seen hanging out together as close friends.


Daisy and Waluigi in the Mario Party 4 opening

Daisy and Waluigi have been portrayed as having a bad relationship, with several games depicting Daisy's interactions with Waluigi as negative. In the official Mario Party 4 guide, it says that Waluigi has a crush on Daisy, and their team name in Mario Party 5 and Mario Party 6 is "Awkward Date". In the Mario Baseball series, Daisy and Waluigi share bad chemistry. In Mario Strikers Charged, Waluigi is her opponent in Challenges mode. In Mario Kart 8, Waluigi is Daisy's rival when playing in the Grand Prix. In Fortune Street, Daisy seems to think lowly of Waluigi. If she lands on one of Waluigi's low-priced shops, she says that the shop is disappointing, and she isn't surprised that the shop belongs to him[23], while when she lands on an average shop, she asks why she needs to stop here and she feels disgusted[24]. In Mario Tennis Aces, she felt Waluigi and Wario were more suspicious than usual[25], and also scolded them when they implied wanting to use Lucien again so they would become strong tennis players, especially when Mario already beat Lucien despite its ferocious abilities anyway[26].

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Wendy O. Koopa's trophy states that she sees Peach and Daisy as her rivals. In Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Wendy calls Daisy a "poser" as well as "lame". In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Wendy has Daisy as one of her rivals.

Daisy, like any friend of Mario, has an antagonistic relationship with Bowser. With a surprising amount of strength, she smacks the Koopa King into the sky in Mario Party 3, and refers to him as a misfit in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games after he and Dr. Eggman are defeated in the Adventure Tours mode. She also shares negative chemistry with Bowser in Mario Superstar Baseball. In Fortune Street, Daisy sees no threat or significance in Bowser[27]. If Bowser is about to win the game, Daisy says she refuses to congratulate Bowser "no matter how awesome he did". Bowser, likewise, denigrates Daisy's efforts, seeing her as lower than Peach in Fortune Street. In Mario Tennis Aces, she indicates that one of the biggest reasons she loathes Bowser is because of his willingness to cause conflicts or even worsen them just to settle his arch-rivalry with Mario, especially when Bowser tries empowering himself by stealing Lucien and the Power Stones while she, Peach, and Mario were dealing with the possessed Wario, Waluigi, and Luigi. After witnessing Lucien possess them, as well as learning its possible origin, she was shown to be very disturbed by the racket, and was somewhat shaken even after its ultimate destruction.

Official profiles and statistics

Main article: List of Princess Daisy profiles and statistics

Daisy was introduced in Super Mario Land as a "tomboyish, full-of-spirit princess", and most subsequent bios characterize her similarly, commenting on her cheerfulness, spunk, and energy. Luigi's crush on her is frequently mentioned, often with hints that she reciprocates. Stats-wise, she is usually a Technique or Balanced sports player, with a Medium weight in most Mario Kart titles.
