Princess Peach's room is a room in Peach's Castle that appears in several games.

History[edit]

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars[edit]

Mario finding Toadstool's ??? in her room

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Toadstool's room is staffed by Grandma. It features a couple of candelabras at the entrance, a blue bed, a lit fireplace, and a blue chair beside the fireplace. If Mario enters the room when he first arrives at the castle, he can pick up Toadstool's ??? between the fireplace and the chair. Grandma immediately takes the item away from him, but she gives Mario a Mushroom in return. When the castle is attacked by Shysters, Toadstool's room becomes a shelter for some of the Toads. A Save Block also appears in the room, and Grandma can fully heal Mario and Mallow if she is talked to (though she prevents them from sleeping in the bed).

Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

In Super Mario 64, the Princess's room, also referred to as the Princess's Tower,[1] is behind the ★ door marked with a "1" on the mezzanine. Inside the room are three stained glass windows with images of Princess Peach on them, and her note on the wall telling Mario about secret paths that Bowser has not found. Jumping into the window on the right will lead to The Princess's Secret Slide.

In Super Mario 64 DS, the princess's room, also referred to as the character room,[2] has been repurposed to contain a "switching room"[3] for each unlockable playable character, and it additionally leads to the Rec Room and the secret room beyond it. To make room, the number of stained glass windows was also reduced from three to two. The original version of the room still exists in a mostly functional state in the game and can even be glimpsed when its ★ door is opened, but the game warps the player to the new version of the room.

Paper Mario[edit]

Princess Peach's room reappears in Paper Mario, containing many more personal amenities, including several paintings, a row of pink dresses, a pink bed with a curtain, and a balcony. During the party, a Toad guards her room, preventing anybody from entering it. However, if Mario keeps asking to enter, he eventually gives up and allows Mario inside. When the castle is taken over by Bowser, Princess Peach is kept captive in her room, and the door is constantly guarded. The room has a secret passage through the fireplace, which is accessed by flipping a switch hidden by a nearby painting. The passage connects directly to a room that Bowser is using for himself. Throughout the events of the game, Peach uses the passage to sneak out of the room and explore the castle. If she is ever caught by a Koopatrol, she is immediately brought back to her room.

Mario & Luigi series[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

Peach's room later appears in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Princess Shroob, disguised as Princess Peach, was brought to the room when Mario and Luigi found her with a Shroob mushroom covering her face. Bowser, also believing her to be Peach, kidnaps her before falling into a time hole that leads to Thwomp Volcano. Afterwards, Baby Peach stays in the room, under Toadsworth and Toadsworth the Younger's vision.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story / Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey[edit]

Peach's room becomes accessible in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake once the player visits Peach's Castle for the second time in the game, after Fawful has taken over it. Only Bowser can get in, as it requires the use of the Spike Ball move to climb a wall that leads to the room. Like the rest of the castle, it has been damaged and there are green pipes over the ceiling.
