Princess Daisy (JP) is the sugary sweet and unbearably beautiful princess Mario rescued in the Game Boy game Super Mario Land. She is the princess of Sarasaland and in the game she was kidnapped by the evil alien Tatanga and Mario had to save her.

Afterwards she made a few cameo appearances before appearing in the Nintendo 64 game Mario Tennis in 2000, where Daisy first appeared as a playable character. Since then she has gained popularity and continues to appear in Mario spin-off game series such as Mario Kart, as a light weight, Mario Party and Super Mario Strikers, among others.

Unlike Princess Peach and despite her sweetness and beauty, Daisy has a strongly implied tomboyish personality, although she still wears dresses and crowns as the princess she is. It is also hinted that Daisy and Luigi are in a relationship.

Princess Daisy's Classic Appearance

When Daisy first appeared in the Mario universe, she had long ginger hair, a flower motif to her white and yellow dress, light skin, and a pink crown.

This outfit also included flower accessories such as a blue flower brooch, flower earrings, and even flower jewels on her crown.

The daisy-motif has only changed once since - a teal-green color was added. In later games, such as Mario Party 3 and Mario Tennis, her appearance was refined. Giving her a rounder face, slightly darker skin tone, and a more auburn color to her hair. In Mario Party 4, Daisy's character design was altered again.

She was given her shorter hair, a new yellow and orange dress design, a bronze crown, and her original skin tone. Nowadays, Daisy appears to have an average skin tone as opposed to the pale tone given to her in Mario Party 4, and Daisy's cheeks have been toned down quite a bit since her Mario Party 3 change. When Daisy appeared in Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64, she wore a shorter version of her dress from Mario Party

3. Other differences (other than the fact it was much shorter) included her not having her dress shoes, her crown, nor her gloves. Daisy can also be seen wearing this outfit in artwork for NES Open Tournament Golf. It should be mentioned that this outfit was a refined unlockable costume in Mario Hoops 3-on-3.

It included Daisy's orange loops at the bottom, but not the two orange pieces of cloth around the waist. It also included her new sport shoes and crown. Not including the unlockable costume from Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Daisy wears a sports outfit similar to her current dress except, instead of a dress, she wears a shirt without the puffy sleeves on her dress, and without the white frills.

She also wears a pair of hot pants that are orange with yellow accents. The rest of her sports attire includes her crown and sport shoes. In Super Mario Strikers, Daisy wears an orange outfit that completely bares her midriff and small shorts.

In the Mario Kart series, she keeps her same appearance, but in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8, when choosing Daisy on a bike or ATV, Daisy wears a similar jumpsuit to Peach and Rosalina, only her stripes are orange, rather than Peach, who wears a Pink Jumpsuit and Rosalina, who wears a light blue jumpsuit.


  • Mario - Mario saved Daisy from the villain Tatanga in Super Mario Land and the two of them have been friends since then.
  • Peach - Peach and Daisy have been best friends since Daisy's appearance in Mario Tennis. They have also been stated together a good team and very strong if they are together like in Mario Party 8 their team name is "Damsels in Success". And, in Mario Party DS, their team name is the "Power Princesses". In the Prima Guide for Mario Kart Wii, it states that Daisy is Peach's cousin but this has yet to be proven in games.
  • Luigi - Luigi and Daisy have been shown in many appearances that state rumors of a potential romantic relationship. Also in team names for them they are usually in dating terms or in Mario Party 8, "Tango Tanglers". Also in Super Smash Bros. Melee in Daisy's trophy states Daisy is to Luigi as Peach is to Mario showing another reason also In NES Open Tournament Golf, Daisy is Luigi's caddy as Peach is Mario's. Also in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy calls upon Luigi in the same fashion Peach calls upon Mario. And in Mario Power Tennis Luigi holds Daisy's trophy if she wins a tournament then grabs it from him saying "Hi sweetie". Also in Mario Kart Wii in Daisy Circuit there are statues of Daisy and Luigi dancing together as well as their baby versions playing together. Plus, in the intro of Mario Party: Island Tour, The two are briefly seen walking together while talking to each other.
  • Rosalina- Although Rosalina and Daisy don't show much interaction in main games, Daisy has been paired with Rosalina many times throughout the series including spin-offs like in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. Daisy has also referenced her as "Rosie" according to Mario-Kun's (Official Mario manga series) description of her. Also the two had shown very good chemistry when paired in events for Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
  • Toadette - Toadette and Daisy's team name in Mario Party games is "Shopping Buddies".
  • Wario - Their relationship is unclear, but we see there is negativity since in Mario Strikers Charged, when Wario does his special moves where he releases gas Daisy and only Daisy says, "WARIO!" in a disgusted way. But there also can be places where they can really be friends because of this team name "Mischief-Makers" showing they can both be trouble together.
  • Waluigi - It seems there are not friends since they have bad chemistry with one another in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers. However, it is rumored Waluigi has a crush on Daisy. There has also been names for them in Mario Party games, e.i. "Awkward Date," though the awkwardness could be due to the aforementioned bad chemistry.
  • Birdo - Daisy has also had team name "Gallopin' Gal-Pals" in Mario Party 8 that states she and Birdo are friends. Also, the two of them are automatic partners in Mario Tennis for the N64 and they share good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers.
  • Yoshi - Has also seen to be in good terms with Daisy with the team names Cutie Pies, and Tomboy-Trouble showing they are probably friends.


  • One of Peach's alternate costumes in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl is loosely based on Daisy, but it is simply a different set of colors and not an actual appearance on her part.
  • Daisy debuted on April 21, 1989. Coincidentally the birth flower of this month is the Daisy.
  • Daisy was played by Samantha Mattis in the 1993 live action movie Super Mario Bros. as she was the princess of an alternate dimension called "Dinohatten".
