"I don't know how you were raised, but I was taught to help people in need."
Princess Peach (casually Peach, and up until Yoshi's Safari and Super Mario 64 referred to as Princess Toadstool), is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. Peach first appeared in Super Mario Bros. and was created by Shigeru Miyamoto to be the damsel-in-distress throughout most Mario games. She resides in her castle along with
many Toads. Her kingdom is often attacked by the Koopa Troop, a group led by Bowser.
Peach has an affinity for the color pink, which accents her feminine personality and kind temperament. Peach's feminine nature and role as the damsel are often represented with her heart abilities and Princess emblems. Peach's initial design was said to represent her stubborn, yet cute, appearance.
Since her debut, Peach has appeared in installments related to the Mario game series for over two decades. Peach is occasionally a supporting character in mainstream games, and almost always playable in spin-off installments. Her most prominent appearance to date is as the heroine of Super Princess Peach.

Super Mario series Edit
Super Mario Bros. Edit
Peach's first appearance.
Super Mario Bros. was Peach's debut appearance. Bowser invades the Mushroom Kingdom, transforms its inhabitants into various objects, and kidnaps Peach (then known as "Princess Toadstool") so she cannot reverse his spell. Mario and Luigi go to rescue her. After they defeat Bowser, the brothers rescue Toadstool. In thanks, Toadstool gave Mario a kiss on the cheek.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels Edit
In Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Bowser kidnaps Peach again. Mario and Luigi travel through the Mushroom Kingdom again to save her. After defeating Bowser, the Bros. save her again.
Super Mario Bros. 2 Edit
In Super Mario Bros. 2, Princess Toadstool (Peach in the Game Boy Advance remake Super Mario Advance), along with Mario, Luigi and Toad, sets out to rescue Subcon from the evil Wart. Toadstool's main ability is limited fluttering time after jumping, but she has poor vertical jumps. Toadstool is the weakest character in the game and has the slowest "pull time" of vegetables.
Super Mario Bros. 3 In Super Mario Bros. 3 Edit
Mario Bros. 3, Bowser sends his Koopalings to capture parts of the Mushroom Kingdom. Princess Toadstool (Peach in the Game Boy Advance remake Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3) sends Mario and Luigi to defeat the Koopalings. She helps them by sending them items. After the Bros. defeat the final Koopaling, they return to find that Bowser has kidnapped Toadstool. The two travel to Bowser's hideout in Dark Land and rescue her. In the English version, Toadstool plays a joke on Mario and Luigi at the very end by saying to them, "Thank you, but our princess is in another castle! ... Just kidding!"
Super Mario World Edit
In Super Mario World, Mario, Luigi and Toadstool are having a vacation in Dinosaur Land when Bowser kidnaps Toadstool again. He takes her to his castle in the Valley of Bowser. He holds her inside his Koopa Clown Car during his battle with the Bros., which allows her to throw them items. After she is rescued, Toadstool kisses Mario on the cheek.
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS Edit
“Dear Mario, please come to the castle. I've baked a cake for you. Yours truly, Princess Toadstool, Peach.” —Peach's letter to Mario Peach's letter to Mario
In Super Mario 64, Peach invites Mario to her castle for cake, but before he arrives, Bowser takes control over the Power Stars and seals Peach in the fresco over the entrance of the castle. After Mario defeats Bowser and rescues Peach, Peach thanks Mario by kissing him and baking him cake.
This installment is the only game for the Mario series overall to provide both Peach's Japanese and Western names. In the original Japanese version, it was merely listed as "Peach" - in the North American release and subsequent editions, the letter is formally typed with "Toadstool" and personally signed with "Peach" in pink underneath. This marked a transition to the widespread use of her original name in other markets, therefore making it an international standard and the first (and only) time Japan heard the North American name of the princess (in the Shindou Edition and its remake), though most of the in-game text refers to her as "Toadstool".
Super Mario 64 DS had the same plot, except this time Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario also help Mario rescue Peach. In this remake, she wears a ponytail which was.
A little known feature of both games is that if the player searches in the Princess's Secret Slide room, they will find a memo from Peach. It reads "My castle is in great peril!! I know it's because of Bowser again. Will he never tire of terrorizing us? He stole the castle's Power Stars and disappeared into the walls along with us! Retrieve all of the Power Stars from the walls and the paintings in the castle." She has another memo in Bowser in the Dark World, teaching Mario how to fight Bowser (though it is only directly addressed as her in the original version).
Super Mario Sunshine
In Super Mario Sunshine, Mario, Peach, and Toadsworth go to Isle Delfino for vacation. However, she noticed something amiss in the tour video: Specifically, that there was an ominous figure in the background in the video who resembled Mario. She also attempted, to no avail, to defend Mario during his trial at Isle Delfino after it became apparent he was framed for defacing the island with gunk. While Mario is cleaning Delfino Plaza as part of his sentencing, Shadow Mario grabs her and runs off. Mario chases Shadow Mario and rescues Peach. After Mario collects ten Shine Sprites, Shadow Mario kidnaps Peach and takes her to Pinna Park. When Mario confronts him, he reveals that he is Bowser's son Bowser Jr. and says that Peach is his mother (to her shock) and that he is protecting her from Mario. He attacks Mario in his Mecha-Bowser, but Mario defeats him. Bowser Jr. flees to Corona Mountain with Peach. Mario makes his way to Corona Mountain and finds Bowser and Bowser Jr. forcing Peach to swim with them. Mario defeats Bowser and rescues Peach. They then managed to spend their vacation for real.
This is also the first Mario game where Princess Peach ever ties her hair up into a ponytail.
