"Hi I'm Daisy!"
― Princess Daisy

Princess Daisy, (デイジー姫 Princess Daisy?) or simply Daisy, is the princess of Sarasaland. She debuted in Super Mario Land after she was kidnapped by the evil alien Tatanga after he had taken over the kingdom of Sarasaland and wanted to marry her and make her his queen; however, she was eventually rescued by Mario. Although she rules Sarasaland, she resided in the Mushroom Kingdom with Princess Peach after her resurgence in Mario Tennis.[3] Princess Daisy is the closest friend of Princess Peach and Luigi, though she has been rumored to be the love interest of Luigi. Princess Daisy is a beautiful, sweet, athletic, and energetic tomboy who participates in various sporting events.

Princess Daisy is a character from the Mario franchise. Princess Daisy was created to be the damsel-in-distress in Super Mario Land. When the Mario Tennis developers created an evil version of Princess Peach, Shigeru Miyamoto rejected the idea and game developers revived Princess Daisy, leading to Waluigi's creation due to Wario lacking a proper tennis partner. Overall, Princess Daisy has appeared in most spin-offs with Waluigi.


Physical description

Daisy's former appearance.

Princess Daisy is represented as a young woman, lightly tanned skin, with bright blue eyes, round, plump cheeks, and medium-length brown-orange hair that goes down to her shoulders and points upward.[3]

In the early days from Super Mario Land to Mario Party 3, Daisy had long brown-orange hair that goes down to her hips, making a more resembling of Peach. She wears a red crown with a daisy on it, a mixed yellow-white princess dress, white short gloves and 2 white earrings that are shaped like daisies.

Later on, until today, she wears a mixed yellow-orange dress with 2 bottom orange petal-shaped layers, a green centered daisy brooch, red high heels, just like Peach, white petal-shaped openings and collar, and earrings with green gems. Her crown changes to gold just like Princess Peach, but her crown has red and green crystal with daisies on it.

In NES Open Tournament Golf, she wore a short sundress with ballet flats, but did not keep a crown on her head. In-game, however, she was depicted as wearing a blue dress as well as blonde hair, presumably due to hardware limitations.

In Mario Tennis, she wore a mixed yellow-orange dress with a bottom white petal-shaped top, a green centered daisy brooch, white petal-shaped openings, knee-high white socks with orange sneakers, and earrings with green gems but doesn't keep her crown on her head. In Short Game mode, her Player 2 palette mans a lavender and purple dress, while the sneakers are purple as well.

In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, she wore a two-piece uniform consisting a yellow sleeveless top, orange shorts, and orange shoes with mid-height white socks.

In Super Mario Strikers, Daisy wore a two-piece soccer uniform with white high-top shoes and knee high orange socks.

In Mario Strikers Charged, Daisy wore a two-piece armor set due to the intensity of the safety regulations. Her home uniform is orange while her road uniform is emerald green.

In Mario Kart Wii, Daisy wore a jumpsuit in white as the primary color with yellow as a secondary color. It includes a yellow scarf and a yellow heart graphic on the back. It features white-rimmed yellow elbow-length gloves, and matching knee-high boots in yellow with white trim and soles and keeps her crown on her head, earrings and brooch. Daisy mans this suit while riding bikes. She also mans this outfit while riding ATVs in Mario Kart 8.

In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Daisy wore an outfit more suitable for colder weather. This outfit is a yellow long form fit top with an orange shrug and form fit pants with vertical white stripes on both sides. White gloves and ankle boots with a yellow bottom are included and keeps her crown on her head, earrings and brooch.

In Mario Sports Mix, Daisy wore a short dress compared to her overall appearance that was first introduced in Mario Party 4. It draws similarity to Peach's look in Toadstool Tour, but the mini-skirt has two stripes instead of one. This appearance would also be shown in Mario Tennis Open and Mario Golf: World Tour.

In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Daisy wore a yellow leotard with orange lining on either side that also functions as a swimsuit, which was used specifically for gymnastic and water-based events.

Personality traits

Daisy taunting in Ultimate.

Daisy was originally portrayed very similarly to Princess Peach; a sweet, innocent damsel-in-distress, even having the same voice actress as Peach. However, Daisy's personality was later redesigned to be of a sassy, spunky, feisty, and energetic tomboy. Daisy likes shopping and dining at restaurants. During party and sporting events, Daisy does not like to lose. As Daisy is a passionate sports girl, meaning she is very sporty and is very good at them.

Daisy is tough and hard-headed; she tries to get what she wants. Daisy attempted to claim the Beauty Stamp, but she ran off crying after she did not receive it. Daisy was disappointed to Wario and Waluigi when they did not "learn anything" after Mario defeated Lucien.

Daisy is also sensitive and rarely non-confident. Daisy was concerned for Luigi who fell upon Lucien's power. She thought that her team may not beat Lucien.

Daisy will use her charms and tough temper to get what she wants. In Mario Party 3, she flirts with the Millennium Star to get the Beauty Stamp, and she swats Bowser into the sky when he gets in her way.

In Super Mario Strikers and Mario Strikers Charged, her personality is heightened. She celebrates scoring by showboating; throwing herself on the ground as she pumps her arms, brushing her shoulders off, and making a sizzling sound as she presses a finger to her backside. She responds to opponents scoring by trying to hide her injuries, and she crosses her arms and taps her foot disapprovingly at her teammates, who cower in response to her wrath.

Behind the scenes

Creation and development

Gunpei Yokoi and his development team created a video game called Super Mario Land, a classic gameplay style of Super Mario Bros. where Mario explores Sarasaland to rescue Princess Daisy from Tatanga.[20] During the development of Mario Tennis, Shigeru Miyamoto rejected the idea of evil version of Peach, WaluPeachie rom game developers; they revived Daisy. There are game descriptions that mention Daisy residing in Mushroom Kingdom.



  • Daisy is the first major Mario character to not be created by Shigeru Miyamoto.
  • It has been known that Daisy has a tomboyish personality.
    • This is shown by Daisy and Yoshi's tag team name in Mario Party 8 being Tomboy Trouble.
    • Most of her game descriptions or official websites refer her as a "tomboy".
    • But Daisy is not a total tomboy, as she wears a dress and has flower earrings with no shame, and is quite fond of her looks.
  • In Mario is Missing!, there is a woman that provides the help information who has a strong resemblance to Princess Daisy in terms of appearance. However, it is not confirmed as to whether this character is Daisy or not.
  • Daisy was played by Samantha Matthis in the live-action movie Super Mario Bros., only she was a blonde, dinosaur/human hybrid and the princess of an alternate dimension called Dinohattan.
  • She was also in a series of comic books just titled "Gameboy Comics" which featured Tatanga escaping the Gameboy world and trying to take over the real world. In that, Daisy was his captive but didn't exactly show restraint. Instead of complaining of being a prisoner, she instead spent most of the issues just trying to politely talk Tatanga out of his conquest, since he was in love with her so she thought she could persuade him.
  • Daisy is the only Mario Kart: Double Dash!! newcomer to appear as a playable character in every subsequent Mario Kart title. Only she and Waluigi appeared in Mario Kart DS, while Waluigi was absent in Mario Kart 7, (though he was supposed to be in the game as a playable character).
  • Along with Waluigi, Daisy appears in every Mario Party game since Mario Party 3 as a playable character except Mario Party Advance.
  • Daisy never physically appeared in the Game Boy Advance title.
  • Daisy was revived because some game developers have made an evil version of Peach named WaluPeachie, but Miyamoto rejected this idea.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Melee, one of Peach's alternate costumes is based on Daisy's outfit and it even changes her appearance to closely resemble Daisy, while in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, it only became a recoloring of her appearance.
    • Peach no longer has the Daisy alternate costume after Daisy appears as a fighter in Ultimate.
  • In Luigi's Mansion, a picture of Daisy's model from Mario Tennis can be seen in a file, it was speculated that she was going to be the damsel in distress of the game because of this, but the plan got rejected and Mario has to get rescued instead.
