Princess Peach's Castle is a stage which appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It takes place outside of Princess Peach's castle, which is designed after its appearance in Super Mario 64. Unlike the Peach's Castle stage from Super Smash Bros., in this stage, players fight on the roof of the castle. It is notably much smaller than it was originally, along with it having a darker color, and the spire is also absent. This time, three colored switches (red, blue, and green) appear every once in a while, and they create temporary platforms and ! Blocks that release items (except heavy items) if attacked or touched and act as platforms themselves. Banzai Bills bombard the rooftop at random intervals, and they will detonate, leading to massive damage and knockback to anyone caught in the blast.

Princess Peach's Castle is also featured in Adventure Mode, where the player's fighter, after passing through the Mushroom Kingdom, battles both Mario and Princess Peach on the stage. If the end time of the previous Mushroom Kingdom stage ends with a two in the individual seconds, Luigi will appear instead of Mario and a small cutscene plays involving Luigi's knocking Mario away and defeating him.

In the castle, a small drain entrance at the bottom right-hand corner can be seen, which is likely to be a reference to the door at the castle moat in Super Mario 64.

The unlock match for Dr. Mario takes place here.

The stage returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with updated lighting and background. The Banzai Bills keep their rotor-like back ends, but otherwise resemble their modern design. The stained glass window of Peach has also been updated to match with her current design since the GameCube era.

Princess Peach's Castle Princess Peach's Castle Super Mario 64
Princess Peach's magnificent royal castle appears to be inhabited solely by the princess and a multitude of Toads. Bowser tried to steal the castle's Power Stars in Super Mario 64, and in Paper Mario, the surly archfiend actually lifted the castle into the stratosphere with his own filthy fortress.
