Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Wii U Peach.png

The ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom returns with a couple of improvements! Peach has some of the most unique movement in the game owing to her float, which lets her mix up her jumps and aerial approach very effectively. This feature combined with Peach's useful aerials make her a very strong fighter in the air. Peach also has some powerful tools at her disposal, with a combo throw, a versatile projectile and an excellent recovery. Peach's weaknesses would be her poor movement speed which hinders her ability to weave around or press the attack, as well as a bit of difficulty KOing. Peach is definitely not an easy character to pick up, but her bag of tricks make her an unpredictable contender in skilled hands.

Basic attributes[edit]

Peach falls at the lightweight side of the humanoid characters, being slightly lighter than Marth. Her speed is pretty poor, way below average in terms of both dash speed and air speed. Peach's jumps are moderately high, and she is one of the floatiest characters in the game, more floaty than Rosalina. A trait exclusive to Peach is her float, which lets her suspend herself in the air once per airborne time by pressing down while holding the jump button. Peach can still move back and forth and use attacks while floating, making it an effective tool for poking and pressuring foes.

The golf club has the most range, least power, intermediate damage and diagonal knockback. The frying pan has the least range, but high damage and power while dealing mostly vertical knockback. The tennis racket has intermediate range and knockback, the least damage, but a very horizontal angle that makes it great at setting up edgeguards.

B button B button 1 button Toad Peach takes out her trusty Toad guard to protect her. If she is attacked while Toad is out, Toad will spew a bunch of harmful spores at the offender.
B button B button B button
Sleepy Toad Toad's attack is slower and weaker, but will put foes to sleep if they're countered while on the ground.
Grumpy Toad Peach can no longer counter with this move, but Toad will always spew spores when she takes him out.
(Left lstick or Right lstick)+B button (Left nunchuk or Right nunchuk)+B button (Left dpad or Right dpad)+1 button Peach Bomber Peach launches forward butt first. If she touches an enemy, she will butt bump them with an explosion of hearts and launch them away.
(Left lstick or Right lstick)+B button (Left control or Right control)+B button (Left cpad or Right cpad)+B button
Flower Bomber Peach travels a shorter distance, hits weaker and takes longer to act out of the ending animation, but the enemy will have a flower sprout on their head if the move connects, causing them to take continuous chip damage for a while.
Flying Peach Bomber Peach flies further at an upward angle, striking with greater force when she bumps into a foe.
Up lstick+B button Up nunchuk+B button Up dpad+1 button Peach Parasol Peach jumps, holding her parasol up to carry foes with her, then opens her parasol to launch foes. While her parasol is open, she will descend at a lower speed. Peach can close her parasol to fall quicker in a helpless state, but reopen her parasol any time to adjust her fall speed. Peach cannot grab a ledge from behind while the parasol is out.
Up lstick+B button Up control+B button Up cpad+B button
Parasol High Jump Peach's initial leap has greater height, but she never takes out her parasol, causing her to deal no damage and fall at normal speed after using the move.
Light Parasol Peach's jump has barely any height, but she is sent up significantly when she opens her parasol. Peach can put away and reopen her parasol exactly once with each use to regain more height.
Down lstick+B button Down nunchuk+B button Down dpad+1 button Vegetable Peach plucks a turnip from the ground, which she can throw like a normal item. The turnips have different faces on them, with the dot-eyed turnip being stronger than normal and the notorious stitchface turnip being especially powerful. Peach also has a rare chance of pulling up a Mr. Saturn or a Bob-omb even with items completely turned off, which lets her destroy shields or KO extremely early respectively.
Down lstick+B button Down control+B button Down cpad+B button
Light Veggie Peach plucks turnips faster but they're weaker. When thrown, they fly through the air slowly and can be caught again multiple times.
Heavy Veggie Peach takes longer to pluck turnips and they don't travel as far, but the turnips are larger and hits harder.

Final Smash - Peach Blossom[edit]

Peach does an enchanting dance that damages foes, puts them to sleep and spawns three massive peaches, each can be consumed to heal 20%. Unlike other moves that induce sleep, this attack will instantly put airborne enemies in a helpless state, which can potentially doom them if they're offstage. Peach Blossom is very different from conventional Final Smashes in that it doesn't specifically help her get KOs. Instead, it disables nearby foes to leave them vulnerable to Peach's normal attacks, while giving her very strong healing items that can effectively remove half a stock worth of damage when consumed completely. You need to find a balance between healing up and smashing enemies away, as foes that wake up quickly enough can steal your peaches for themselves.
