"But she's the original!" you're going to say, "she is Mario's love!" Listen, I'm not going to say either of those are wrong, that's not what I'm here to do. Princess Peach is all right, I suppose, if you're into that sort of thing. However, there's another Princess in the world, and she's currently in the shadow of the aforementioned Peach. It's Daisy, and she should be the star of every "Mario" game ever. Don't understand why? Here are ten reasons, whittled down from a list we've come up with that numbers in the hundreds of thousands, why Daisy is better than Peach.
10. She’s a Better Driver
Just ask anyone who has ever played a Mario Kart title. Daisy is simply a better character in Double Dash and Mario Kart Wii than Peach is, and there’s something to be said about a woman who knows how to put the pedal to the metal.
9. She Has a Less Annoying Voice
Whenever Peach opens her mouth I want to jump into the Mushroom Kingdom and strangle the life out of her. She sounds like every old woman who pokes me with a cane in line at McDonald's, and that drives me up the wall. Daisy, on the other hand, sounds like she may have switched vocal cords with Joan Jett.
8. Orange Hair > Blondes
It's not red. It's not brown. It's orange, and that's pretty sweet.
7. There’s isn’t a Mediocre Game Based on Her
Super Princess Peach isn’t a bad game, per say, just not a good game. For her image, though, it was a big blow. It portrayed her as an emotional monster, and can't have left her feeling good about herself. All in all, Peach is zero for one when it comes to being the star. Daisy, on the other hand, has a flawless record. Completely and utterly flawless.
6. It Takes More than a Turtle to Take Her Down
When it comes down to it, Bowser is just a giant turtle. An angry, evil turtle, but a turtle nevertheless. Yet, for whatever reason, he's still able to crumble the Mushroom Kingdom on a daily basis (which we'll get into shortly), and kidnap Peach even more often. Meanwhile, the one time Daisy was taken, it was because of an alien named Tatanga. It took alien technology to actually kidnap Daisy, not some chump with a shell.
5. She Likes Flowers More than Gems
There are a lot of needy women out there. Some want chocolates, others want attention, and snobby, dumb ones want gems and diamonds. If you look at Peach's outfit, she's covered in them. Giant jewels, giant gems, millions of coins' worth of 'em. Meanwhile, Daisy is rocking flowers, which means you can just pluck a daisy on the way over and she'll be happy. There's something to be said about a low maintenance woman.
4. She’s a Tomboy
Ever since she was first introduced, Nintendo made it clear that Daisy was a tomboy. When it comes right down to it, that means she’s more interesting to talk to, and likely less distracted by things like ponies and rainbows. While Mario is dealing with Peach giggling and wearing pink, Daisy is sliding around in the mud like one of the guys. She's better in the sports games, too, so she'd likely be picked over Peach for a softball game.
3. She's Hotter
Just look at them. At first, it would appear that they're similar, but that's not the case. Beyond having healthier looking skin, it's obvious that Daisy just has a better attitude, and she carries it well. It makes her much more attractive in general, and when it comes right down to it, there are few things more important than looks.
2. She’s a Better Ruler
Think about it. Seriously, think about it. There has only been one game where her kingdom, Sarasaland, has been under attack, and it was a copycat crime to the assault on the Mushroom Kingdom in Super Mario Bros. Since then, there hasn’t been a problem worth mentioning, something that can’t be said about the land Peach rules over. Every other day something is going horribly wrong with the Mushroom Kingdom while Sarasaland’s monarchy remains in control. Sorry, Peach, you’re outmatched.
1. She’s Probably Banging Waluigi.
And as we all know, Waluigi is awesome.
