Peach's Castle (also known as Princess Peach's Castle or the Mushroom Castle) is the castle situated within the Mushroom Kingdom and its most prominent landmark. It is home to Princess Peach, as well as many Toads, including Toad and Toadsworth. The rooms inside the castle vary from game to game, as does the castle's location. Its general appearance was codified in Super Mario 64, where it is characterized by a tall tower supported by four towers along the outside walls. It is usually surrounded by a moat and located in a hilly grassland. Some games also have a town of varying size in its proximity, which is often named Toad Town.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
The Mushroom Castle makes its first appearance in a video game in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is home to Princess Peach, the Chancellor, Grandma, the Vault Guard, and several other Toads. After being escorted to the throne room by Toad the first time, Mario informs the Chancellor that the Princess is missing after a huge sword pierced Bowser's Keep. Soon, after returning from Mushroom Way, Mario and Mallow find Shymores coming out of the castle's front door, with most of the castle's Toads hiding in the Princess' room. After the leader, Claymorton, is defeated in the throne room, the first Star Piece is discovered and the castle returns to normal. Later, Princess Peach is returned to the castle after rescuing her at Marrymore; however, she escapes from her bedroom window using a parasol, and joins Mario's party while Grandma is disguised as her.
After obtaining the fifth Star Piece, Samus Aran makes a cameo resting in the castle's guest room.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
The Mushroom Castle is the main hub in Super Mario 64 and later in its remake, Super Mario 64 DS. It contains many rooms with paintings (some of which can be jumped into to access courses) and furniture. The Castle Grounds are surrounded by hills that prevent the player from escaping. After the player defeats Bowser, Princess Peach emerges from the stained glass window on the front of the castle. When the player gets all of the Power Stars in the game, the cannon in the Castle Grounds is unlocked, granting access to three 1-UP Mushrooms and Yoshi (or one of Luigi's rabbits in the DS version) on the roof.
In the original version, five secret Power Stars are obtained around the Mushroom Castle itself. Three are each obtained by talking to certain Toads around the castle. The other two are obtained by catching MIPS around the castle. In Super Mario 64 DS, the Power Stars from MIPS are no longer obtainable, which means only three Power Stars returned in the remake. Three Power Stars were introduced in the remake, which makes a total of six Power Stars that can be obtained at the Mushroom Castle:
- One can be obtained by collecting eight Red Coins in the courtyard by defeating Boos.
- One can be obtained by Luigi when he goes behind a door inside the large mirror in the room with the Snowman's Land and Chief Chilly Challenge paintings.
- One can be obtained by catching eight glowing rabbits in total.

New Super Mario Bros.
The castle reappears in New Super Mario Bros. where it is struck by lightning in the beginning (as a diversion while Peach is kidnapped) and can be seen in World 1-1. Since this game, the New Super Mario Bros. series has had a running theme of having Peach's Castle visible in the background of the first level of each game.
Super Mario Galaxy
The castle reappears in Super Mario Galaxy, keeping its design from Super Mario 64. A town adjacent to it and a road leading there are considered a part of the castle grounds, named Castle Gardens in the game. In the beginning of the game, Peach invites Mario to the castle for the Star Festival. When he gets there, Bowser lifts the castle into space and kidnaps Peach. At the end of the game, Rosalina flies Mario to the castle so that he can battle Bowser. When Bowser is defeated, the castle is sucked into his black hole, but it is expelled and returned to its original location in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario (or Luigi) can access the castle grounds when they go to the Grand Finale Galaxy after the player collects 120 Power Stars with both characters.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the castle is featured during the game's opening in which Peach holds her birthday party. After she is kidnapped by the Koopalings, Mario, Luigi, and two Toads immediately chase Peach, and two other Toads back at the castle fire Penguin Suits and Propeller Mushrooms out of a cannon into the Mushroom Kingdom.
The castle is also the location to watch hint movies, which can be obtained by giving Star Coins to a Toad who resides in the castle during the game. Once again, it can be seen in the background at the start of World 1-1.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
The castle appears very briefly in the opening of Super Mario Galaxy 2. After Mario arrives, he finds it under attack by Bowser, who gloats at Mario and flies away with Princess Peach. Mario then meets two Lumas on the bridge over the moat, one of which turns into a Launch Star and sends him to Sky Station Galaxy. The castle also appears at the end of the credits where Mario and friends have a party for saving the galaxy.
Super Mario 3D Land
In Super Mario 3D Land, if the player waits for a while on the title screen without pressing , they can enter Peach's Castle. There are five Toads here, and Mario can practice his moves in the castle. The place where the red Toad stands is inaccessible, as it is sticking up, which can be seen while stepping behind the tower or by switching to 3-D. The castle can also be seen in the opening and ending cutscenes of the game. Like in the New Super Mario Bros. series, the castle also appears in the background of World 1-1, alongside the Tail Tree.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Like in New Super Mario Bros., Peach's Castle makes a cameo in New Super Mario Bros. 2 in the opening and in the background of World 1-1. It has the same appearance as in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. As in New Super Mario Bros., however, it cannot be entered. It also appears in the hidden area of Course 3 of the Gold Classics Pack.
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
- Main article: Peach's Castle (world)
Peach's Castle in New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe appears to be in the same location as in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and can again be seen in the background at the end of Acorn Plains-1. However, this iteration has a large moat surrounding the castle (as in Super Mario 64 and other games), an extra floor, as well as two towers on either side of the central tower. In the games' openings, Bowser and the Koopalings kidnap Princess Peach and take hostage over her at her own castle, which is the final area of the main game. Bowser and Bowser Jr. await the player at The Final Battle, which takes place at the top floor of the castle.
Super Mario 3D World
In Super Mario 3D World, the castle is briefly seen in the opening cutscene as the protagonists (Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad) take a walk on a starry night full of fireworks and meteors. The castle appears to have its design from Super Mario 3D Land this time around, but the main doors now have a rounded shape, and are blue with three spots, resembling a mushroom, and the grounds surrounding it are blocked by grassy hills.
Super Mario Run
During the events of Super Mario Run, Peach's Castle along with other buildings are destroyed as Bowser tries to take over the Mushroom Kingdom. However, if the player plays Toad Rally frequently, the castle will be rebuilt and will expand over time caused by the increase of Toads. Peach's Castle stops expanding at level 20, when the player has at least 4,000 Toads. Peach will be brought back to the castle when the player defeats Bowser in Bowser's Bob-ombing Run.
Super Mario Odyssey
Peach's Castle appears in Super Mario Odyssey. It can be glimpsed in the opening cutscene, but it, like the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom, can only be visited after completing the game. Its design is heavily based on its appearance in Super Mario 64, and features some references to that game.
The roof of the castle can be accessed by throwing Cappy onto a nearby Scarecrow, which creates a temporary set of stairs. Yoshi can be found on top of the roof like in Super Mario 64, albeit encased in a Yoshi Egg; breaking the egg will release Yoshi and allow him to be captured. A Power Moon can be found on one of the castle's towers.
Behind the castle is a small ledge where Goombette can be found, and in the castle's moat is a Warp Pipe blocked off by a fruit. They can both be accessed by draining the moat, which is done by removing the four poles located underwater; this will also play the "puzzle solved" tune from Super Mario 64. The Warp Pipe takes Mario to a painting of the Ruined Dragon, allowing him to rematch the boss.
The castle's interior is heavily based on the main room of the first floor of the castle from Super Mario 64, complete with a rearrangement of "Inside the Castle Walls" as the background music. Toadette can be found inside the castle, and will give Mario Power Moons in exchange for accomplishing certain achievements. Two Power Moons can also be found there, one of which is collected by standing on the sun rug at the center and looking at the ceiling, which is a reference to how the Tower of the Wing Cap is entered in Super Mario 64. Three regional coins can be collected behind Peach's throne, and the kingdom's Hint Art can also be found inside the castle. Like in the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom, the Power Moons obtained in the castle have the appearance of Power Stars, and play the corresponding jingle from Super Mario 64 when collected.
After Peach and Tiara are rescued, they travel the world on their own. If Mario returns to any of the kingdoms (excluding the Dark and Darker Sides), he is able to find them in certain areas. Upon returning to the Mushroom Kingdom, Peach and Tiara are located on the castle's balcony.
After 999 Power Moons are collected, the castle's tallest tower will be covered by a giant top hat. Climbing on top of it and throwing Cappy at the glowing spot will trigger a short cinematic, showing a display of fireworks as Peach and Tiara wave towards the camera from the balcony and a triumphant rearrangement of the level clear tune from the original Super Mario Bros. plays. However, if a Goomba Tower with a stack of ten is at the front of of the castle while the celebration plays out, Peach and Tiara will instead become scared.
Super Mario Maker 2
Peach's Castle plays a key role in Super Mario Maker 2's Story Mode. In it, Chief Toadette and her group of Toads have just finished building the castle, but Undodog appears and steps on a Reset Rocket, causing the castle to be erased. The mode revolves around Mario going on jobs requested by various characters in order to collect coins to have the Toads rebuild the castle. In certain cases, including nearing the end, various Toads request errands to help complete the castle, and also rescue various Toads who got abducted while otherwise unoccupied with the task, with the Chief ending up being abducted by Meowser just before the finishing touches to the castle were completed. Afterwards, Peach arrived and proceeded to thank Mario and the Toads for the hard work in restoring the castle before kissing Mario on the face. However, Undodog approached the Reset Rocket, causing everyone to panic as it irised out, although the end credits revealed that they ultimately managed to stop Undodog from erasing the castle again.

In Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Peach's Castle appears in the background of Peach Circuit, Mario Circuit 1, Mario Circuit 4, and Battle Course 3, where it uses a similar design to Paper Mario, while its appearance in Peach Circuit's icon more closely resembles its design in key artwork for Super Mario 64. In Peach Circuit and Battle Course 3's reappearances in Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii respectively, the castle lacks the flags. Peach's Castle can also be seen in the background of Rainbow Road atop Bowser's Castle, just like in Paper Mario.
Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
The castle appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! twice: once on Mario Circuit, and again in the background on Mushroom Bridge in Grand Prix mode, just before the first tunnel. In Mario Circuit, the castle is completely cut off from the road and separated from the track by walls. Also, in Mushroom Bridge the castle can be spotted vaguely obscured by fog in the background. This castle is very cartoon-like compared to its other appearances.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, yet another Mario Circuit is built around Peach's Castle. The castle appears to be in a different location from its previous appearances and is on a large hill in the center of the track.
It also appears in N64 Royal Raceway with an updated design, with the area around it changed. Furthermore, the entrance to it has been blocked. Thus, racers can no longer explore the area around the castle.
In the Booster Course Pass DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the castle appears in DS Mario Circuit, retaining its design from Mario Kart Tour.
Mario Kart Tour
In Mario Kart Tour, Peach's Castle reprises its role in 3DS Mario Circuit, with an updated design and doors at the front entrance. It also appears in N64 Royal Raceway, DS Mario Circuit, and GBA Peach Circuit, with the same design.
Wrecking Crew '98
In Wrecking Crew '98, the castle appears when the player wins the Tournament mode, where the player's character parades in a car. Like in Mario Kart 64, It has the same design as in Super Mario 64.

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Mario Golf: World Tour
Paper Mario series
The castle was once again taken over by the Koopa Troop during the events of Paper Mario. In the beginning of the game, Princess Peach invites Mario and Luigi to a party at the castle. However, while the Mario Bros. (and numerous other guests) are having fun, Bowser hatches an elaborate plan that causes his castle to rise into the stratosphere under Peach's Castle, taking the Princess' castle with it. Many of the party guests are imprisoned and Bowser throws Mario out of a window, sending him spiraling back toward the Mushroom Kingdom. Peach is once again forced to be a prisoner in her own castle.
When Mario visits Shooting Star Summit in the prologue, Princess Peach's room is visited by Twink, a Star Kid who offers to help Princess Peach. After every chapter of the game (except the last), there will be an intermission in Peach's Castle when the player controls Princess Peach to collect information for Mario from Bowser's diary, talking Koopatrols and Hammer Bros, Gourmet Guy, the 64th Trivia Quiz-Off, etc.
In the end, Mario, Goombario, Kooper, Bombette, Parakarry, Lady Bow, Watt, Sushie, and Lakilester (with the help of the Star Spirits) fly to Bowser's Castle and make their way up to Peach's Castle. The team finally confronts Bowser and Kammy Koopa on the roof of the castle, and defeat both of the villains, sending them flying off the castle and returning it to its rightful place in Toad Town.
The player can access the castle and its grounds in their "normal" state, as they were before the castle's uprooting, prior to the game's prologue. The player controls Mario for the last time as he enters the castle to attend a party commemorating his victory over Bowser and his forces, and once he is there, Peach arrives and gives a speech thanking Mario, his partners, and everyone else who supported him for all they had done to restore the kingdom to its former peace.
At the beginning of the game, where Mario explores the castle to find Peach, there is a Toad soldier guarding the princess's room. If Mario talks to him enough times, he will become annoyed and let Mario explore the room (however, he insists that he not touch anything). There is also a guest room turned Toad House later in the game, which is also the last Toad House in the game.

Paper Mario: The Origami King
- See also: Origami Castle
In Paper Mario: The Origami King, Peach's Castle makes its second appearance in the series (not counting a mention in Super Paper Mario), complete with a similar-looking interior. Its exterior, however, seems to take some cues from New Super Mario Bros. U, sporting a wide moat and a turret-laden wall around it; the latter of which is explored by Mario at the beginning of the game.
At the start of the game, Mario and Luigi are invited there to celebrate the Origami Festival. Inside, Peach's appearance and behavior towards Mario is different, having been transformed into origami by King Olly. When he refuses to be turned into origami as well, Peach sends him down a pit through a trap door hidden in the castle's sun rug. In the aftermath, the castle is overtaken by five colored streamers, lifted into the sky, and placed on top of a mountain as Olly takes over the Mushroom Kingdom. After destroying all of the streamers, Mario, Bowser, and Olivia gain access to the castle, although upon entering, the entire castle is transformed into Origami Castle, which serves as the final area of the game. After King Olly is defeated and Olivia wishes to the 1,000 cranes for all his damage to be undone, Peach's Castle returns to its original form and its original spot.
A Collectible Treasure of Peach's Castle (No. 1) is found inside a chest in Whispering Woods. Mario must clear the leaf-matching mini-game to make a Super Star appear, grab that star that makes him invincible and able to walk on spikes in order to access the chest containing the treasure.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga / Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and its 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Princess Peach's Castle, also referred to as the Mushroom Kingdom Castle, plays a very minor role. The castle grounds can be explored at the start of the game, and the castle can be viewed from Hoohoo Mountain in the original game. Mario's battle with Bowser takes place inside Princess Peach's throne room, but the castle interior cannot be explored.
At the beginning of the game, Princess Peach receives a gift from the Goodwill Ambassador from the Beanbean Kingdom at her castle, but the ambassador and her assistant soon reveal themselves (Cackletta and Fawful in disguise) and steal Peach's voice. Peach's voice is replaced with explosives, which blow up the castle. Later in the game, it is revealed that who is stolen the voice of is actually Birdo in disguise, and the real Peach is hiding behind a curtain with Toadsworth when the fake Peach is receiving Cackletta and Fawful.
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
- See also: Shroob Castle
In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, the castle is the main traveling point of the game, nearly identical to how it was used in Super Mario 64. The music is also a cover version to the aforementioned game. The castle held all of the time holes leading into the past in the entire game.
There are many items and coins and the castle is home to one of the game's three item shops. There are 2 bosses the player fights in there, one against the Junior Shrooboid and the other the last boss in the game; Shrowser. Goombas can also be fought in the basement area.
In the past, the castle has been taken over by the Shroobs, who turned it into Shroob Castle, the final dungeon in the game.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story / Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
- See also: Super Peach's Castle of Fury
The princess' castle reappears in the sequel to Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its Nintendo 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey.
The game begins at the castle, with Mario and Luigi traveling through the main interior to the meeting room. The meeting is about the Blorbs that have infected much of the Mushroom Kingdom. The meeting is soon canceled as Bowser comes into the meeting, angered by the fact that they don't believe he is there to solve the unknown disease. After Mario defeats him, Peach and Starlow send him out of the castle. Later on, Bowser now under the effects of the vacuum shroom enters the meeting room as everyone leaves, inhaling everyone in the room. Bowser then ends up knocking out, and Fawful appears, sending him out of the castle yet again.
Later in the game, Fawful takes over Peach's Castle, which serves as the final area of the game. In the original game, the castle does not look too different except in ruins. In the remake however, the castle walls and towers are changed to dark blue, the roofs and tower tops are changed to magenta, the windows are blocked off, Fawful's likeness is plastered everywhere, the interior is much darker and there are dark clouds above the castle the whole time (in the original game, the dark clouds were only present during the final battle). Fawful also transforms the entire castle into a giant robot, which Bowser battles as his final giant boss, severely damaging the castle in the process. After that, he must defeat Fawful and Dark Bowser before they conquer the entire Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Luigi can enter the castle in this state, but since only Bowser can destroy the Fawful statues in the way and climb on the walls by rolling, they can't go past the entrance, but they can get access to a secret passage to get a new piece of equipment. After the defeat of Fawful and the Dark Star, the castle is gradually repaired back to its old self over the course of the credits.

The castle makes an appearance as the starting location in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. It is also the place where Luigi knocks down the book off a bookshelf in the cellar of the castle containing the Paper Mario world. Peach's Castle also includes an Item Shop, a Gear Shop, and later unlocked in the game, a Battle Card Shop. Eventually, the castle gets wrecked by Neo Bowser Castle with cannonballs, leaving the castle in ruins.

Super Princess Peach
In Super Princess Peach, the castle was affected by the Vibe Scepter and Bowser's minions captured Mario, Luigi and Toad while Princess Peach, Toadsworth and another Toad were enjoying a walk. Also, in this game the castle bears six or eight towers supporting the outside walls. If not, it can be explained that the rear of the castle is wider than the front and would require symmetrical placement of towers, therefore allowing only four towers to be visible in the opening scenes.

Mario & Sonic series
Peach's Castle only makes background appearances in a few of the Mario & Sonic games. In the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, a background based on Peach's Castle appears in the third segment of the Mario World routine in Dream Figure Skating, using its design from New Super Mario Bros.. Peach's Castle also returns in the background of Mario Circuit. In Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Peach's Castle appears in two of the backgrounds for Mario's Figure Skating Spectacular, using its design from Super Mario 3D Land. It appears in the distance on the first background, and then forms the majority of the final one. In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, Peach's Castle appears in the background of Dream Karate, using its design from Super Mario Odyssey.
Mario Sports Mix
- Main article: Peach's Castle (court)
The main gimmick of this court is sprinklers that turn on and off. In dodgeball, the water acts as the dividing line between the two sides of the court. When the water goes down, players can move anywhere on the court, even the other team's side. In basketball, it acts as an obstacle to stop players from getting to the hoop. In hockey, it blocks the puck from going into the goal immediately. In volleyball, it will cause the ball to bounce back.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
The castle also appears in the ending of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, where it fulfills the same purpose as in Super Mario 3D World, appearing in the background as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad are walking.
Mario + Rabbids series
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Though it cannot be entered, the area surrounding the castle serves as the hub world of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and is the place where all Rabbids are sent after being freed from the influence of the Megabug. As the game progresses, elements from the areas visited by the heroes appear on and around the castle as decorations. After the main story is cleared, the castle's exterior becomes golden.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope
In Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Peach’s Castle is only playable at the beginning of the game, where Mario and Rabbid Peach must find Rabbid Mario's overalls, which had been hidden in a bush by Rabbid Luigi. After the Darkmess Manta attacks, Mario and his friends cannot return here. Peach’s Castle is also seen at the ending, where Rosalina thanks Mario and his friends for saving her from Cursa.

Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
The player begins the game in the Castle Grounds. A sealed cannon is found near the lake to the right. After the player obtains all 120 Power Stars (150 in the remake), the cannon opens and the player is able to launch themselves to the top of the castle roof, where the player finds Yoshi, who gives Mario 100 lives and an enhanced Triple Jump. Also up there is a red block holding a Wing Cap. In the DS version, Yoshi is seen on the roof only in the introductory cutscene, due to the fact that he is now a playable character. However, Luigi's final rabbit can be found on the castle roof, as well as a red block holding a Power Flower (or a feather if the player uses Mario). The roof in Super Mario 64 DS features a small fence around the area where the three 1-UP Mushrooms are found. It is possible to get to the top of the castle by climbing down the tree when the moat is not drained, or by a special technique that all of the characters, except Yoshi, have to get to the roof without even using the cannon. A moat surrounds the castle, and it can be drained during gameplay if the player ground-pounds the two columns in the basement. After the moat is drained, the player can enter Vanish Cap Under the Moat (named The Secret Under the Moat in the remake). There is also a waterfall, which acts as the exit of the Cavern of the Metal Cap (renamed Behind the Waterfall in the remake).
After entering the castle, the player finds a Toad, who says to go to the portrait of the Bob-omb Battlefield, the only course that has not been sealed by Bowser at the time. There is also a locked door that leads to the second floor. There are also two wooden doors, which both lead to the Boo-infested hallway, the courtyard, and the stairs to the basement. The stairs are located between two pillars, each with two coins on it. The door to the right of the mezzanine leads to the Princess's room, which hides The Princess's Secret Slide; in the DS version, this room is repurposed to have switching rooms, and a door within leads to the castle's Rec Room. The Big Star Door to the left of the mezzanine is where Bowser resides in the level Bowser in the Dark World. A portrait of Princess Peach is found at the end of the corridor. However, the deceiving portrait turns into an image of Bowser as the player walks down the corridor. In the middle of the main room, a sun in the form of a rug sends the player to the Tower of the Wing Cap (named ? Switch in the remake) when they look at the sun shining from the ceiling. A 3-★ door to the right leads into the Jolly Roger Bay main hub room. Its room has two squares in the wall, to the left and right of the entrance each. Going into the one on the left rewards a 1-UP Mushroom to the player's character. The square on the right leads to the level The Secret Aquarium.
After the player unlocks the door on the first floor, ascending a set of spiral stairs leads the player to the second floor of the castle. It is a round room with portraits adorning all areas of the wall. A set of stairs leads to yet another Big Star Door and ultimately the third floor. There are two doors found opposite each other on the outside wall. The first leads to a room that contains several portraits leading to Tiny-Huge Island. The other contains a mirror that runs through the center of the room. The player can become Vanish Luigi to pass through the mirror in the remade game.
The third floor consists of a small round room with a clock seen directly opposite the door. There are two small niches in both sides of the wall, each leading to a different course: The one to the left warps the player to Wing Mario Over the Rainbow (named Over the Rainbows in the remake), and the one on the right warps the player to Rainbow Ride. Above the door of the third floor is yet another Big Star Door, where a staircase leads to the final battle (Bowser in the Sky). However, 70 Power Stars (80 in the remake) are needed to break the spell of the endless stairs.
The basement is the lowest area of Peach's Castle, as it is just below ground level. It can be entered through the set of stairs that descend near the first floor. It consists of many areas all linked together by doors. One of the lower areas of the basement is made up of shallow water. An area found at the front of the castle basement is initially completely flooded with water from the castle moat. However, the moat can be drained by ground-pounding two pillars. After the player has done so, the water drains and a door that was previously inaccessible leads to the Castle Grounds.
After the water is drained, a 1-UP Mushroom can be spawned by touching the four corners of the tunnel area.
Description and location
In most games, the castle is normally gray marble, but in some games, it is white and even a light cream (Super Princess Peach). Since 1996 it has kept its original highest tower emerging from a wider circular tower underneath - both always in the center of the castle. Normally, the main feature of the castle is a rectangular or square shape, with nearly always four towers supporting this part. The roof is nearly always a shade of red, but in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, it was a pale orange.
A window is usually present at the front of the palace. There is an image of Princess Peach embedded, painted or carved onto the window. In Super Mario 64, this was the part of the castle Princess Peach was concealed in and is only released when Bowser is defeated.
In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, the castle is a huge palace with many rooms and secrets. Despite having many rooms, there are no regular "living" rooms, such as a bedroom or kitchen. Most of the rooms simply have a large painting in them. The castle also has a basement, the floor of which is oddly coated with water. The castle grounds were also quite spacious in this game. There are plenty of trees that can be climbed up, and the land itself is quite large. A body of water surrounds the castle, which eventually leads into a small pond. In this game, the castle is reached via Warp Pipe.
In Paper Mario, the castle differs radically from its 64 counterpart. The palace is still large and has a great number of rooms, but each room has a purpose (there is a library, a bedroom, and many storage rooms), and the lobby is connected to the ballroom. The castle grounds are also much smaller, with a simple fountain and one or two trees outside the castle. Much of the castle's surrounding land was lifted into the air with Bowser's castle, which may explain the seemingly shrunken land; however, even when Mario finally reaches the castle to confront Bowser, no moat can be seen. The castle has no warp pipe leading to it, as it can easily be reached from Toad Town.
In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, the palace was again, like Paper Mario, big and had actual "living" rooms. This castle however was different from the Mario 64 and Paper Mario versions and the garden looked very different (there were no trees either).
In Super Mario 64, there was a courtyard located behind the castle but it was not visible from the front or roof of the castle in the main gardens. However, the main part of the castle could be seen from the courtyard. The courtyard introduced the magic and mystery of Peach's Castle that the Power Stars seemed to have control over. The courtyard in both the original Super Mario 64 and in the Nintendo DS remake was infested with Boos. Big Boo's Haunt and another secret level were hidden in here.
Differing from the castle in Super Mario 64, in Super Mario Galaxy, the castle now has a balcony and several windows. The castle still has the body of water connected to it, but is now close to a nearby town. Also different from the older version, this castle's outside is more detailed.
Also in Super Mario Galaxy, the cutscenes show a more detailed top tower than when playing as Mario in the Star Festival.
In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story the castle was controlled by Fawful and was planned to use it against Bowser when he would arrive, Bowser then defeated the castle in the devastating battle. In the 3DS remake, the castle has been completely transformed inside and out, and is much darker with more Fawful motifs, such as the dome he fought in from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, which makes a few appearances, notably in the entry of the castle. The windows are blocked off, and machinery is in clear view built into the castle, inside and outside, foreshadowing the giant battle with Bowser. The brickwork surrounding the castle is also now metallic, and the stained-glass portraits of Princess Peach now have Fawful's face on them.
In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the castle has fewer windows, no moat, more detail than its DS predecessor, and looks more remote than Super Mario 64/DS and Super Mario Galaxy.
In Super Mario Galaxy 2, the castle looks like the castle from Super Mario Galaxy. The balcony from Galaxy is still present, and there are now several vases full of flowers on the grounds. During the invasion of Bowser, several meteors hit the grounds, blocking off the east half of the grounds.
In Super Mario Odyssey, the castle was largely similar in design to in Super Mario 64, although it possessed a flagpole on top, as well as a balcony. In addition, the turrets surrounding the castle are now shown to be hanging over rather than directly connected to the moat. In addition, the brochure for the kingdom in that game revealed that the reason it had a stained glass image of Peach near the top of the castle was as a form of comfort for the inhabitants of the kingdom, as Peach sometimes was absent from the kingdom, either due to Bowser abducting her or simply leaving on her own accord, with the citizens creating the stained glass window. In addition, aside from the turrets of the main castle, there were also additional turrets that were originally watchtowers, but were converted into art storage depots that contained magical paintings.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the castle largely had the same design as Super Mario 64, although the central turret had part of the top removed, and also possessed platforms.
In The Super Mario Bros. Movie, the castle is located on top of a mountain overlooking the entire Mushroom Kingdom.
Peach appears to have more than one castle. A completely different one is seen in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. It stands on a gigantic and poorly structured rock out in the sea. This castle is also visible from Koopa Beach. The castles of Super Mario Bros. and its sequel, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, are also said to be in the Mushroom Kingdom and invaded by Bowser. The Mushroom Castle in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars also has a radically different design, as it predates the traditional design from Super Mario 64.
In the Modern version of the Fire minigame for Game & Watch Gallery and Game & Watch Gallery 4, the main setting is a burning castle that presumably belonged to Princess Peach, with Mario and Luigi needing to evacuate Toads, Yoshis, and Donkey Kong Jrs. into a nearby Mushroom carriage. In the Modern version of Chef for the latter game, after reaching 200 points, the background will transition to a castle garden that presumably belonged to Princess Peach. In the comic series Super Mario Adventures, Peach's Castle has a slightly different design, resembling a medieval castle.

- "This is Peach's Castle. But we just came out of Bowser's Castle! I've got a funny feeling about this... I wonder where Princess Peach is being held captive. I think we should brace ourselves, Mario."
- "This is the first floor hall of Princess Peach's Castle. There are so many doors, though. Where on earth can Princess Peach be?"
- "Boy, what happened here? This is even messier than my room back home! It looks like nobody ever puts anything away in here."
- "That's a pretty huge drawer over there. I bet a person could fit inside! If they wanted to, that is... Hey, there's a bed, too! This must be a guest room."
- "It's a kitchen. I'm just guessing, but I bet this is where they make the meals. The castle's head chef probably cooks all the meals, don't you think? I wonder what kinds of savory dishes he knows how to make. Hey, Mario, have you ever eaten here?"
- "This is the second floor hall of Princess Peach's Castle. There are so many doors, though. Where on earth can Princess Peach be?"
- "This is just an ordinary room. Do you smell something, though? What a strange odor..."
- "Wow! So many books. If we weren't in the middle of such an adventure, I'd love to read some of these."
- "It's a dining room. It looks like somebody has eaten here recently. Probably not the Princess-- they're probably starving her! People always say that the meals served here are delectable. I'd love to eat here sometime."
- "This looks like a storeroom. ...! Hey! Check out that box! Let's see what's in it."
- "Wow! This is Princess Peach's room, isn't it? It smells great in here! It's such a cheerful room, just like Princess Peach. I can't believe she was locked up in here for so long, all by herself. She must've been so lonely... We've got to rescue her, right now!!"
- "This balcony has a great view. I'm betting that this is one of the princess's favorite places."
- "It's a covered hallway in Peach's Castle, Mario. Let's find Bowser and save Princess Peach!"
- "We have to help Princess Peach!! Mario! Hurry up! Let's move!"
- "Bowser's gone upstairs. C'mon, we have to follow him! Mario, let's roll!"
- "We have to save the princess! Hurry up! Mario! There's no time to waste!"
- "It's a castle tower. These long spiral stairs go up and up and around and around. Oog...I feel dizzy."
- "Huh? Where in the world did Bowser just disappear to?"
On the ground
- Princess Peach's Castle used to be right here, on this very spot. But then the evil King Bowser uprooted the castle-- and kidnapped Princess Peach. Only a big hole is left here now.
- This castle is where our beloved Princess Peach lives. That evil King Bowser once stole the castle... But now it's back, and it's as beautiful as ever.
In the sky
- Princess Peach's Castle now rests atop Bowser's Castle. Peach, the princess in peril, is being held inside.
- Princess Peach's Castle was once here atop Bowser's Castle. But now it's gone.
