The Heart is a special item that appeared in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! While Peach is usually associated with hearts, this special item is shared by both Peach and Daisy in Mario Kart Double Dash!!. This is one of the few times Daisy is associated with hearts. Petey Piranha and King Boo are also capable of obtaining this item.When this item is used, two hearts will circle around the kart. The hearts protect the kart from two incoming items (except Blue shells, Bob-ombs, Stars, Chain Chomps, and Lightning). If the player gets hit with an item, a heart will disappear and the player will be able to use the item.
- Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is not the only game that associates Daisy with hearts:
- There is also a heart on the back of her bike suit in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8.
- A heart is visible in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. She will use it in rhythmic ribbon if Csikós Post is chosen as music.
- She uses hearts in the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
