Super Princess Peach is a 2D platformer game for the Nintendo DS. In this game, the characters' traditional roles in the Super Mario series are reversed: rather than Mario and Luigi being the protagonists and rescuing Princess Peach, it is Mario, Luigi, and the Toads who are kidnapped and taken to Vibe Island by Bowser, who has stolen the Vibe Scepter, a magical item capable of influencing emotions, leaving Princess Peach to rescue them as the main protagonist. To accomplish this, she befriends an anthropomorphic umbrella, Perry, and uses her own powers of emotion. This is the first game on a dedicated console in the Super Mario franchise in which Peach is the sole main protagonist, with the first overall being Princess Toadstool's Castle Run. This would also be Peach's only other starring role in a game until Princess Peach: Showtime! 18.5 years later.

While Princess Peach is on a stroll, Bowser and the Koopa Troop, with the Vibe Scepter, take over her castle, capturing Mario, Luigi, and Toad. Upon Peach's return, she finds her castle guards in a variety of emotions ranging from sad, happy, or angry. Peach then decides to rescue Mario, Luigi, and Toad, who have rescued her on many occasions in the past. Before she leaves, Toadsworth gives her a magical, sapient umbrella named Perry, whom he recently bought from a merchant. Perry offers to help Princess Peach on her journey. The story of Perry before he was purchased by Toadsworth is revealed throughout multiple dream sequences. As Peach travels throughout Vibe Island, Perry is shown to be a very useful ally in many situations. By the end, Perry recovers from his amnesia.

After defeating Giant Kamek, Peach rescues Luigi and the Toads. After defeating Bowser, she rescues Mario. Ignoring Luigi completely, she shoves him to the side as he runs to Mario. They happily swing around together, and Mario takes her into his arms and gives her flowers from his hat.

Toad hosts the Shop which is available at start of the game. The player can access the menu by pressing R Button while in the menu of Vibe Island or a world to buy abilities, music, puzzle pieces, and minigame levels. Items have different criteria for the player to unlock them in the shop. For each item the player chooses, Perry describes the item.

If the player can afford the item with a certain amount of coins, Toad asks the player if they want the item. If the player accepts, the player can trade the coins for the item. If the player rejects, Toad bawls at the player for teasing him. If the player cannot afford the item, Toad states they do not have enough coins.

Peach's Vibes[edit]

During the course of gameplay, the player is able to help Peach trigger one of four vibe abilities, provided she has an adequate amount of energy in the Vibe Gauge (located on the top left screen of the Nintendo DS, below her main health meter) to do so. In order to do this, there are four colored Heart Panels on the bottom screen, each representing a certain vibe. The player can touch them to allow Peach to proceed with the related action for each vibe ability.

The four vibes are as listed on the following chart:

Picture Name Effect Heart
Princess Peach from Super Princess Peach. Joy Peach becomes extremely happy and gains the ability to float when the player presses A. When the player releases A, Peach also creates a tornado which dispels air and gets rid of some boundaries. In most cases, the flight lets her reach otherwise inaccessible Toads and areas of stages. This vibe effect also plays fast music in a happy higher tone. Joy heart sprite
Princess Peach feeling mad from Super Princess Peach. Rage Peach becomes enraged and catches fire. The fire lights up the area around her, as well as having the ability to light lamps and fuel hot air balloons. When she jumps, the resulting stomp as she comes back down can shake the ground, stunning most enemies nearby and setting off big switches. This vibe effect also plays music in an angry tone. Rage heart sprite
Princess Peach from Super Princess Peach. Gloom Peach becomes very sad and begins to cry, causing her to run faster and make plants grow for her to climb. Her tears can also make water wheels go around, opening hidden parts of stages, and can freeze onto cold surfaces to make them slippery and make it easier to get under tight spaces. Gloom heart sprite
Calm Vibe Calm Peach becomes calm, restoring HP while depleting the Vibe Gauge. The process stops when she either reaches her maximum HP, depletes the Vibe Gauge, or is attacked by an enemy. Calm heart sprite

To refill the Vibe Gauge, Peach is able to collect blue gems that are scattered around each stage. Perry is also able to eat most basic enemies to achieve the same result by picking them up while they are upside down and stunned, then pressing "Down" on the Control Pad to swallow them.

Perry's Assistance[edit]

Perry can form into several different objects to aid Peach's travels as well, from a boat to a submarine, from a cable car to a laser weapon. More details about each strategy are listed below:

Upon completion of the main five levels in each of the first seven worlds, Peach is able to proceed to the respective boss area. Each boss uses a vibe ability at some point during the battle; in most cases, this is after three out of five hits, and generally lasts the remainder of the battle. In order to face the final showdown at Bowser's Villa, however, all the Toads prior to this level have to be rescued. When this criteria is met, Peach and Perry are able to proceed toward the final showdown with Army Hammer Bro and Bowser.

Image Name Vibe World Glossary entry Description
Boss P. Plant Boss P. Plant (US)
Petey Piranha (EU)
Rage heart sprite Ladida Plains 80: "A big Piranha Plant. Its belly button is vulnerable?" A giant Piranha Plant that inhales deeply before spitting out Nipper Plant groups, roars, and swipes up fast shockwaves with his leaf arms. He can be damaged by using Gloom while he inhales, filling his belly with Peach's tears, then jumping on his bellybutton after it distends.

Once he uses Rage, he begins leaping around the arena rather than staying in place.

Hoo Hoo Joy heart sprite Hoo's Wood 81: "The protector of Hoo's Wood. Attacks when threatened." A massive owl who sends trios of eggs slowly down which hatch into babies and swoops at Peach, allowing it to be jumped on.

When it uses Joy, it uses its eggs to destroy the platform Peach is on, sending her into a freefall as it follows her through the air. It then spawns eggs to orbit around it while moving outward. Peach can raise over it by using joy herself, allowing her to stomp on it.

King Boo sprite King Boo Gloom heart sprite Shriek Mansion 82: "The boss of the Boos. It fears the light!" A huge Boo who follows Peach relentlessly and spawns blue fireballs. He can be damaged by lighting all four torches in the room with Rage, though he puts them out every time he gets hurt.

When he uses Gloom, he gains the ability to put out the torches by being near them due to his tears.

Wiggler boss sprite Wiggler Rage heart sprite Fury Volcano 83: "Usually quiet, but it gets angry when stepped on!" A giant, irritable caterpillar that simply wanders back-and-forth. If it is jumped on, it becomes angry for a brief period, moving faster and causing rocks to fall from above. To damage it, Rage must be used to compress a piston so it shoots up from underneath, flipping Wiggler over, after which she must stomp a flashing segment, after which it rights itself and becomes angry briefly. If she stomps the wrong segment or leaves it flipped too long, it will right itself and become angry with no harm done. Additionally, if it is flipped while angry, it calms down and rights itself.

When it uses Rage, it becomes angry and uses its flower to fill the air with smoke, which can be fanned away by spinning with Joy, but will slowly return for the remainder of the fight.

Gooper Blooper sprite Gooper Blooper Calm heart sprite Wavy Beach 84: "The Blooper boss. It can attack with its tentacles." An enormous Blooper that attacks from the background with his four tentacles, which he uses to try to grab Peach, but become vulnerable if it misses. Each time a tentacle is attacked, he retaliates by shooting several balls of goop, which can be cleared with Gloom, before hiding his mouth. Once all four tentacles are gone, he stops hiding his mouth, allowing him to be damaged when he finishes spitting goop. Once he is hurt, he brings his tentacles back out.

When he uses Calm, he falls asleep and blows a bubble. To prevent him from healing damage, the bubble must be quickly popped with repeated attacks.

Blizzaurus in her sprite and dragon forms Blizzaurus Joy heart sprite Gleam Glacier 85: "The dragon of Gleam Glacier. It used to be a sprite." An icy dragon encased in a ball of ice, Blizzaurus can charge or shoot a freezing ice beam to attack. To damage her, Peach must use Rage to chip away the ice around her, with the damage occurring as soon as the shield shatters. Once she recovers, she brings the shield back.

When she uses Joy, she assumes her true form as a sprite and flies high above, still surrounding herself with an ice barrier. She uses her magic to drop massive icicles onto the arena, which can be climbed on to use rage at a height more easily affecting her.

Giant Kamek from Super Princess Peach. Giant Kamek Gloom heart sprite Giddy Sky 86: "A Kamek made huge with magic! It can teleport!" The boss of the Kameks, Giant Kamek teleports around, using its wand to fire spells and occasionally calling several Kameks to fly across the arena. To damage it, Joy must be used near its face, causing its head to spin around and make it dizzy, allowing it to be attacked normally.

When it uses Gloom, its actions become more erratic and the cloud platform used to reach it before disappears, necessitating further usage of Joy.

Army Hammer Bro Army Hammer Bro Rage heart sprite Bowser's Villa 87: "The Hammer Bros. leader. Stronger than the others?" Bowser's most elite minion in the game, he throws larger hammers than normal Hammer Bros and jumps much further, moving across the battlefield.

Army Hammer Bro uses Rage as the fight begins and continues to do so throughout the fight, summoning Hammer Bro minions.

Bowser sprite Bowser Joy heart spriteGloom heart spriteRage heart sprite Bowser's Villa 88: "Mario's old enemy. Uses the power of Vibe Island..." Bowser charges, throws hammers, and breathes fire. Using the Vibe scepter, he makes use of multiple vibes in battle.

When using Joy, he leaps at Peach repeatedly, with each landing creating slow-moving shockwaves in both directions.
When using Gloom, he throws six hammers high into the air at once, which descend at a massive size.
When using Rage, he becomes more aggressive and all of his normal attacks become much more dangerous.

Bowser 2 sprite Bowser 2 Calm heart sprite Bowser's Villa 89: "He wasn't beaten! Hit his eyes with a Bob-omb!" The giant version of Bowser slams his hands down, rains spiked balls, breathes fire in singular balls, larger bursts, or long streams requiring a large inhale, summons rings of ghostly hammers to scatter across the screen, and summons Bob-ombs. To damage him, a Bob-omb must be made to explode right in front of his eyes.

When he uses Calm (with the use of the Vibe Scepter), he closes his eyes and a translucent Bowser symbol appears. Peach needs to quickly destroy the Bowser symbol by attacking it several times before he can heal.

Game Extras[edit]

During the course of gameplay, there are extra unlockable materials that players can obtain upon meeting certain criteria. These unlockables can be accessed by pressing L Button to open up the menu when the player is on a map screen.


Every time the player defeats an enemy (or, in the case of an invincible enemy, first visits its stage), the enemy's description will appear in a bestiary-like glossary. A few enemies are not included.


Three minigames can be unlocked by playing through the course of the game: Toad Jump, Toad Tote, and Toad Shot. Initially, there is only one level that can played for each upon unlocking the minigame. Additional levels can be found hidden in stages or by purchasing them from the shop. Each minigame has ten levels. There is also one that is playable during the intro sequence, when Peach obtains Perry from Toadsworth. It can be replayed by holding R Button and pressing Start Button.


Eight puzzles are assembled by collecting the puzzle pieces hidden throughout stages and by purchasing them from the shop. Only upon finding all the pieces to a puzzle can the player actually attempt to put it together.

Music Room[edit]

The Music Room for Super Princess Peach is where the player is able to listen to the game's musical score and some of Peach's voices. In order to unlock this extra, the player has to find or purchase at least one soundtrack. The tracks are shown to be played by the band to the left of the screen, called the Peach Hit Five. Initially, it only consists of Peach and Toadsworth, but once more soundtracks have been unlocked, three Toads will join. There is a total of 60 soundtracks in the game, five of which are Peach's voice overs.


After each boss battle, Peach and Perry rest before continuing on to the next area in Vibe Island. During each rest period, Perry has a recurring dream that seems to reveal more and more about his past. Perry's story shows that he was originally a human boy, but was taken from his grandfather by a pair of evildoers who transform him into an umbrella, trapping him in that form. Luckily, he managed to escape from them and used his magic glow to attract a traveling merchant Toad who added him to his wares. Eventually, Toadsworth met Perry and bought him from the merchant, leading to the events of the main game. The story itself is completely separate from Peach's main tasks in her adventure. There are a total of seven sequences in all. At least one "Perry's Dream" sequence has to be viewed in the main game itself in order for this option to be available.

Additionally, if the player has purchased the Endless Vibe item, the player is given the option to turn it on or off here.


Super Princess Peach received mixed to positive reviews. Generally, critics have praised the platforming gameplay, while the game's difficulty has received criticism.

Release Reviewer, Publication Score Verdict
Nintendo DS Carig Harris, IGN 7.8/10 "There are two sides of the Super Princess Peach fence: on the one hand, you pretty much know what you're getting into with a game starring Nintendo's very, very female protagonist - a game most likely designed and marketed for the girl audience. On the other hand, it's a Nintendo developed platform game, and these generally have a level of expectation. It's an interesting balance, and ultimately Nintendo did a good job with Peach's first starring game. Even if it's a little too easy for the usual gaming crowd."
Nintendo DS Ryan Davis, GameSpot 7.2/10 "Those looking for the next great Super Mario Bros. experience will undoubtedly be let down by Super Princess Peach and will have to wait for New Super Mario Bros. for their next opportunity. Super Princess Peach is still a fun platformer with a fair amount of cutesy charm, one that takes great steps to differentiate itself from the series it's derived from. The competence with which Super Princess Peach is made makes it a wonderful introduction to 2D platformers for the young, the casual, or the uninitiated, but experienced platform players won't find enough challenge to sink their teeth into."
Nintendo DS Mathew Kumar, Eurogamer 6/10 "Super Princess Peach is not a truly remarkable title on the scale of Mario & Luigi, not only as it's not very funny, but its innovations in interface and design actually make it slightly less fun than it might be if you played it 'straight'. But neither is it a shameless cash-in. The game, though a solely single-player experience, has not only a fun story mode, but a host of extras adding longevity in the face of its relative ease. It's fun for a while, but its star doesn't shine bright enough to be anything but ultimately forgettable."

References to other games[edit]

  • Super Mario Bros. 2: One of Peach's primary ways of defeating enemies, by picking them up and throwing them at each other to defeat them, is reused from this game. Also, the Floatbrella move works like Peach's gliding did in this game.
  • Donkey Kong: The final boss fight against Bowser bears some resemblance to the final battle against Donkey Kong in the 1994 Game Boy game, including his becoming giant and also the protagonist using some weapons he knocks down against him to defeat him by throwing them to his face (Mario using barrels on Donkey Kong, and Princess Peach using Bob-ombs against Bowser, respectively). Similarly, both Bowser and Donkey Kong's transformations occurred due to contact with an item earlier (Donkey Kong due to landing on several Super Mushrooms, and Bowser using the Vibe Scepter in a last ditch effort to defeat Peach).
  • Super Mario World: Some of the enemies in this game reappear in Super Princess Peach. Most of the Brick Blocks resemble Rotating Blocks.
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island: Some of the enemies in this game return in Super Princess Peach. The lamps in Shriek Mansion 3-2 resemble the Spooky enemy from this game. Some of the Brick Blocks resemble Egg Blocks. Giant Kamek enlarges himself for his battle, similar to how Kamek did so for the bosses in this game. The Bowser battle has a second phase where the player must throw objects at his face, like with his younger self in this game. Perry eating enemies to recharge the Vibe Meter is similar to Yoshis eating enemies to gain eggs.
  • Super Mario Sunshine: Toadsworth, Petey Piranha, and Gooper Blooper return in this game. Petey Piranha, Wiggler, and Gooper Blooper are defeated in similar ways to their respective battles from this game.
