Princess Daisy is the beautiful princess of Sarasaland, a land existing in the same universe as the Mushroom Kingdom. Daisy made her debut appearance in Super Mario Land on the Game Boy in 1989. Then she made a cameo appearance in NES Open Tournament Golf. After that she didn't appear in a game for 9 years. Luckily, after her revival in Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 in 2000 she started to appear as a regular spin-off character due to the lack of human characters in the Mario universe at the time.

Appearances

See Daisy's Appearances for the list of games she has appeared in.

Super Mario Land Daisy

Daisy9

Old Daisy

While her in-game sprite is only 8-bit and lacks colors, Daisy's artwork shows a detailed image of her. She has a round face shape and a beauty mark on her upper right cheek. She has long, red and ginger hair. Her earrings, dress jewel, and crown jewel all have blue gemstones encircled by five to six white petals. She wears a yellow dress with white flower motifs at the bottom of it. Her crown is red with no present gemstones on the side. Compared to Peach, Daisy has a rounder face, black eyes (who became blue in NES Open Tournament Golf) with only 2 eyelashes, a smaller nose, a bigger mouth with finer lips and hair of the same length but with a slightly different style.



Nintendo 64 Daisy

When Daisy returned to the Mario series in Mario Tennis 64 she was given her first redesign. Further changes were made to distinguish her from Peach. She was given a tan, presumably because of her ruling over an exotic country, her hair was made dark auburn and longer than Peach's, she also had a slightly rounder face than before and noticeably smaller features. Her crown became rose-colored and the gemstone in the center was golden with blue gemstones on the sides. Her earrings and dress jewel retained their blue gem design until in Mario Party 3 and Super Smash Bros. Melee where her jewelry changed into a more turquoise color with an indigo transition shade. Her dress was slightly shorter than Peach's dress and given the same design she had in Super Mario Land. In Mario Party 3, she wore red pumps with high heels despite her artwork showing them as orange, while her Super Smash Bros. Melee trophy shows them as brown. Mario Party 4 was the first Mario game where Daisy does not have this design and instead uses her current design. However, Mario Party-e, an e-reader game for the Game Boy Advance has Daisy in her N64 design, despite the boxart showing her current design. Mario Party DS is the most recent game to show Daisy's classic design, where the Mario's Puzzle Party Minigame from Mario Party 3 returns and the icons for every character except Toad (who wasn't playable in Mario Party 3) are changed back to their N64 designs.


Modern Daisy

Daisy render

Daisy received her second and current redesign in the early GCN era. She lost her tan and was given a very pale complexion. Her face was made wider and her cheeks became puffy to emphasize her sassy, tomboyish personality. Facial features such as her nose, were presumably given a wider size to fit her new face shape. Her eyes were also made bigger to fit her new face shape and her irises became light blue. Her earrings now have a total of 6 white petals and the surrounding gem retains the turquoise color but lost the indigo transition shade. Her hair returns to its original titian color but is made shorter with a curlier end. The crown is made gold and is given a turquoise gem in the center surrounded by four white petals with red gems on the side.

Daisy2Dalt

Her dress resembles Peach's dress but with two frills at the end of it and its colors are a golden yellow with deep orange highlights instead of its previous amber shade with white highlights. The high heel pumps she wears with her dress are orange traced with red. The body differences between Peach and Daisy are further distinguished during this period. Daisy is given a shorter body while Peach has a smaller waistline and a taller height. Her tomboyish and energetic sides are developed and is during the years more differentiated from Peach in their individual animations and characteristics. She is shown to be more cheerful, confident and brash.

Although Daisy wears her sportswear in more games, her dress is considered to be her main attire.

Additionally, Peach's dress is slightly more curved than Daisy's, while Daisy's crown is slightly smaller than Peach's.

Daisy's sports outfits

Daisy's Classic Sports Dress

In NES Open Tournament Golf and in the Mario Tennis games on the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color, Daisy wears a skirt which is inspired by the yellow and white dress she wore in Super Mario Land. In NES Open Tournament Golf, Daisy wears yellow shoes. In Mario Tennis, she wears knee high socks and orange shoes. Unlike Peach, Daisy doesn't wear her crown.

Daisy's dress appeared blue in NES Open Tournament Golf due to color limitations.


Daisy On Her Sports Outfit

In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy was given a sports outfit. The outfit exists of a bright yellow tank top, orange and yellow shorts and orange and yellow tennis shoes with yellow laces. Daisy wears this outfit more than any other outfit, including her regular dress. She wears it in almost every sports game.

While Daisy's main design has her wearing her traditional dress, Daisy actually wears her sports outfit in more games than she wears her dress. This is because of Daisy's more frequent appearances are in sports games.

In Mario Power Tennis, in the cutscene where the player completes tournament as her, Daisy's tennis shoes are replaced with yellow and orange rollerblades with grey wheels.

Daisy In Her Tennis/ Golf Wear

In addition to her standard sports outfit, Daisy also has another sports outfit with a skirt. She first wore this outfit in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 where it was an unlockable outfit for Daisy. This outfit was also in Mario Sports Mix, again as an alternative outfit. It is a bright yellow skirt with orange accents at the bottom, just like her regular dress. This outfit is similar to Peach's Tennis Outfit that originated from Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. Peach would later gain a regular sports outfit with shorts just like Daisy's starting in Mario Superstar Baseball. Daisy also wears this Tennis outfit in Mario Tennis Open and Mario Golf: World Tour. However in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Daisy instead wears her regular sports outfit instead of the skirt. Daisy goes back to wearing this outfit for tennis and golf in Mario Sports Superstars.


Daisy In Her Strikers Outfit

In Super Mario Strikers Daisy plays in orange and her team number is 9. Her outfit exists of two pieces: a jersey and shorts. She also wears soccer shoes. In Mario Strikers Charged she plays again in orange with her team number again being 9. This time however, she also has an alternate colored outfit. Her outfit looks similar to the outfit in the first installment, but now has added armor due to the game being rougher.   


Daisy In Her Winter Wear

In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Daisy wore a special winter sports outfit. It appears to be a small yellow dress on top of an orange shrug and orange leggings, all with white accents. She also wears white gloves and white boots with yellow soles. Outside of the Winter Olympics, Daisy also wears her "Winter Wear" in equestrian in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Daisy's winter outfit has only been used in the Mario & Sonic series and has not been used in any Mario sports games outside of the Mario & Sonic crossover games. Even the horse racing in Mario Sports Superstars has Daisy wearing her traditional sports outfit. Daisy's winter suit is fluffy on the edge of her skirt and gloves, but the only artwork where that is shown is her artwork from Mario & Sonic At The Sochi 2014 Olympic Games, while the other artworks only have a white edge.


Daisy In Her Leotard/ Swimsuit

Daisy wears a bright yellow and deep orange leotard, or one piece athletic outfit that she only wears in swimming and gymnastics events in the Mario & Sonic games starting with Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. It was revealed in an Iwata Asks how the females almost did not get this outfit. Originally, SEGA wanted Daisy, Peach, Amy and Blaze to wear swimsuits in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, but the idea was rejected by Nintendo. Daisy and the other girls did eventually get swimsuits in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. The most recent game to have Daisy wearing this outfit was in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Like the winter outfit, Daisy has only worn this outfit in the Mario & Sonic series.


Daisy In Her Biker Outfit

In Mario Kart Wii, Daisy receives a new biker outfit for when she is riding bikes. The outfit also appears in Mario Kart 8 when Daisy is riding a bike or ATV. This jumpsuit is identical to the ones worn by Peach and Rosalina, except Daisy has yellow stripes and boots instead of pink or light blue. The back of Daisy's jumpsuit has a yellow heart design on it, which is shared with Peach and Rosalina except for the color difference. 


Personality

Since her first appearance in Super Mario Land, Daisy is described as being tomboyish with a cheerful and charming disposition. She is competitive and lively but is also confident and kind. Additionally, she is also shown to be less refined and more immature than Princess Peach, possibly because she is described as being very young.

In the KC Deluxe manga, Daisy is extremely tomboyish and mischievous. She brazenly flirts with Mario who reciprocates her interest, much to Peach's dismay, and is shown being seductive and even at times belligerent. In Mario Party 3, Daisy shows a similar characterization as she has no qualms about slapping Bowser because he was in her way and flirting with the Millennial Star to get the beauty stamp.

In Japanese and English versions of Fortune Street, Daisy is shown with a domineering, brash character. Her words are often playfully teasing, sometimes too harsh, especially to Luigi; whom she teases and bosses around when his shops aren't big enough. She seems to be impulsive and quick to fly off the handle, as her words tend to be sharper and uncontrolled if she feels irritated. Peach in contrast, is shown to be more thoughtful and careful in her expressions, while Daisy is more competitive, blunt and impolite.

However, she is shown as optimistic and down-to-earth in most of the spin-off titles and a pleasant companion, especially to Princess Peach.

Daisy enjoys activities such as sports, roller skating, cheer leading, this contrasts to Peach who enjoys video games and gardening. However, the two seem to share an interest in food as Daisy's sponsors include Daisy Candy and Peach & Daisy Royal Patisserie.

Alternative Forms

Daisy also can appear in other forms that show up briefly in a game, or solely in one game. Below are all of the alternative forms/ appearances Daisy has taken on to date.


Shadow Daisy

QuestionmarkDaisy

The Legends Showdown mode in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games would feature clones of characters called shadow variants of the characters. They appear to be evil and have a characteristic dark blue complexion with white-blue eyes. The playable characters have to face off against these shadow characters in events.


Bitsize Daisy

Bitsize Daisy

Mario Party 8 features 8-bit versions of the playable characters. When a character eats a Bitsize Candy they will turn into an 8-bit version of themselves. Bitsize characters hit Coin Blocks that contain three coins inside for every space they move until their move is complete.


8-bit Daisy
8Bit Daisy

Super Mario Maker would introduce Mystery Mushrooms where Mario can use to turn into mostly 8-bit costumes of characters. Interestingly, Daisy's dress appears to have lost its second frill at the bottom. This is most likely due to the limited space to work with on her model. Her brooch underneath her neck collar also noticeably lacks white petals.

The player can unlock this 8-bit Daisy by beating Adventure in Sarasaland, an event course based on Daisy.


Bubble Daisy

Bubble Daisy


Mario Party: Island Tour would feature evil versions of the playable characters made by Bowser's bubble machine to hinder the player's progress in Bowser's Tower. They are characteristically a light blue color with reflections similar to a typical bubble.


Fake Daisy

GBA--Super Mario Land Jul8 20 19 11

In Super Mario Land, after beating the boss of world one, two and three the player is transported to go a room where "Daisy" is trapped. After "Daisy" thanks Mario it turns out that she is actually a costume and she will turn into an enemy and go away. These are similar to the Fake Bowsers from Super Mario Bros and Super Mario 3D Land, which would be revealed to be minions of Bowser upon being defeated by Mario.

Relationships

Daisy and friends

Mario

Mario4

Daisy and Mario in Super Mario Land

Daisy and Mario are friends. In Super Mario Land, Mario saves Daisy from Tatanga and she gives him a kiss before they ride together in an airplane during the ending scene. However, Daisy doesn't shown any relevant form of friendship for Mario after this. In Fortune Street, Daisy and Mario seem to be on friendly terms based on the dialogue they say to each other. Despite being friends, Mario and Daisy only have neutral chemistry in both of the Mario Baseball games. In Mario Party 5 and the JP version of Mario Party 8, Mario and Daisy's team name is "Nice Couple."

In the Kodansha Deluxe Mario manga series, Daisy is shown to have feelings for Mario. Daisy's feelings for Mario leads up to a rivalry between her and Peach for Mario's affections.

Luigi

Princess Daisy and Luigi walking together

Daisy and Luigi are suggested to be a couple since NES Open Tournament Golf where Daisy takes the role of being Luigi's caddy. Daisy's trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee states that Daisy is Luigi's answer to Mario's Peach.

In Mario Tennis 64, Daisy is paired up with Luigi in Doubles Tournaments. The Mario Party 4 manual states that Luigi and Waluigi both have crushes on Daisy. Their shared affections for Daisy is said to be one of the reasons for their rivalry. This seems to be remembered in Mario Party 5, as Daisy and Luigi's tag team name is "Steady Sweeties".

One of the most notable hints about Luigi and Daisy being a couple is the giant statue of Luigi and Daisy in Daisy Circuit in Mario Kart Wii . There is also a statue featured of Baby Luigi and Baby Daisy in Daisy Circuit behind the Luigi and Daisy statues.

Luigi Daisy

In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy says 'Luigi'and Peach says 'Mario'in the opening.

In Daisy's victory scene in Mario Power Tennis, Luigi holds Daisy's trophy until she shows up and takes the trophy while calling him "sweetie".

In Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U one of Daisy's trophy states that Luigi is quite smitten with her and in Peach's clear movie Peach's Daisy alt is shown grabbing Luigi.

Shown pictured, there is also a special animation between Daisy and Luigi (as with Mario and Peach) after they complete the Figure Skating event in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

During an official event at a Nintendo World Store in 2013, fans were able to talk with Mario and Luigi through live video chat while being voiced by Charles Martinet. When Luigi was asked "So how's Daisy doing?" Luigi began to talk about how he took her on a date to get some pizza. He also talks about how he thinks she is beautiful. 

Peach

547px-Princess Peach and Princess Daisy - Mario Party 7

Daisy and Peach artwork in Mario Party 7

Daisy's closest relationship in the Mario series is with Peach. Ever since Daisy's big return to the Mario series in Mario Tennis 64, Daisy and Peach are shown as best friends. While the Prima guides for Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii state that Daisy is Peach's cousin, this was never confirmed by Nintendo. Both Mario games and official bios on Nintendo websites confirm the two to be friends.  

Many Mario games commonly show Peach and Daisy together, and the two of them are usually default partners in Mario games that involve teams. Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Power Tennis, and Mario Party 7 are some examples of Mario games where Peach and Daisy are teammates. Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour is the first game to have Peach and Daisy as default partners, where they are a team in the game's Doubles Mode. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is perhaps the most notable game to have the two as a team. Daisy is the co-captain on Peach's team in both of the Mario Baseball games. Several pieces of artwork throughout the different Mario games feature Peach and Daisy together, such as Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Party 7, Mario Party 9 and Mario Sports Mix. 

Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64 is the first game to have Daisy and Peach interact, where they are seen beside each other for a majority of the game's intro. They are seen smiling at each other towards the end of the game's intro when everyone is happy. Despite this, Daisy and Peach are not Doubles Partners in this game. Mario Super Sluggers is the first Mario game where Peach and Daisy share dialogue together. They are shown interacting together in the game's Challenge Mode. Once Peach is rescued from Bowser Jr., she asks where Daisy is. After Toadsworth explains what happened to Daisy, Peach joins Mario and insists that they go and see Daisy. Once the team meets up with Daisy, Peach shows deep concern for Daisy's safety, to which Daisy tells Peach that she's right as rain. Daisy joins the team after they find a Toad statue to prevent the garden from flooding. After the player recruits every character in Peach's Ice Garden, Peach will name everyone that is on her team, also referring to Daisy as her friend. 

Peach is very frequently mentioned in various character biographies for Daisy. Mario Party 6's website mentions that Peach missed female companionship until Daisy moved into the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario Kart 7's website says that Daisy is "Princess Peach's royal buddy." Daisy's biography for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games states that she and Peach are great friends. On the Mario Power Tennis website, Daisy wrote to Peach and signed the letter referring to herself as "Your sister-in-arms." Sisters-in-arms refers to a very close friendship between two females. 

In Fortune Street, Peach refers to herself as Daisy's "sister-in-arms" and is shown to be rather upset when Daisy is winning and leaves her behind. While Daisy is usually shown to be competitive and gets upset when she loses, she is shown to be happy for Peach if she's about to win the game. The two of them also share some dialogue together in-game. 

Baby Daisy's introduction shortly led to her and Baby Peach being paired together. Baby Peach and Baby Daisy have been shown to get along well and were even playing hide-and-seek in Mario Super Sluggers until Bowser Jr. scared them. It could be suggested that Peach and Daisy have been friends since they were toddlers. One of Daisy's bios in Italian suggests that she and Peach have been friends for a long time. 

Mario Kart 8 features a Women of Racing Organization sponsor in some courses. Peach and Daisy can be seen on one of them together with Birdo. A different version of this sponsor can be spotted in Toad Harbor which features both of the princesses without Birdo. Peach and Daisy also own their own bakery together named Royal Patisserie. It can be seen in both Sweet Sweet Canyon and GCN Yoshi Circuit, as well as it having several sponsors for it. Some fans consider Sweet Sweet Canyon as Peach and Daisy's course in Mario Kart 8, even if their names aren't in the course name.

Daisy and Peach's special animation in various Mario & Sonic games

The Mario & Sonic series also shows positive interactions between Peach and Daisy. The Festival Mode cutscenes on the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games show them next to each other. The ending cutscene itself shows Daisy happily getting along with Peach, and she grabs onto Peach's arm while they look at the trophy together. In Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, as well as the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Peach and Daisy share a special animation together during the medal ceremony if they win together in a team event. For their special animation, they spin around several times before posing, then they high-five and wave to the audience. Peach is the only Mario character Daisy has a special animation with. The ending cutscene in the Sochi Winter Olympic's Legend Showdown shows Peach and Daisy celebrating together. In the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Peach and Daisy are often seen together throughout the Mario Story. Daisy's biography in the Wii U version of the Rio Olympics states that Daisy plans on eating at the finest restaurants and go shopping with Peach in her free time. Daisy also mentions Peach in-game as well, saying she was glad she didn't go shopping with her yet and she'll save that fun after she wins the current tournament. 

In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour's intro, Daisy is seen golfing with Peach, Mario, and Luigi. When Daisy is seen golfing towards the beginning of the intro, Peach can be seen with Mario and Luigi, and is shown to be excited as Daisy swings her club. In Mario Golf: World Tour, there is a vegetal Daisy statue in Peach's golf course, Peach Gardens.

While Peach and Daisy are normally portrayed as best friends, the Mario Strikers games portray them as rivals in Challenge Mode. They are seen facing off against each other in the Super Mario Strikers intro. Daisy is Peach's rival in Mario Strikers Charged. In the Kodansha Deluxe Mario manga series released from the late 1980's to the 1990's in Japan, Peach and Daisy are friendly rivals. They are rivals when it comes to winning Mario's affections, but outside of that they are shown to get along well. They go golfing together in the NES Open Tournament Golf manga adaption. In the Dr. Mario adaption, Daisy and Peach both help Mario in one of the stories.


Bowser

Bowser

Daisy and Bowser are on negative terms with each other. In Mario Party 3, Daisy becomes frightened by Bowser and punches him into the sky, as Bowser "was in her way." Daisy also considers Bowser to be a misfit, as said in the DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

In Fortune Street, Daisy sees no threat in Bowser: "I bet Bowser seriously thinks this goofy castle is totally intimidating. As if!" If Bowser is about to win the game, Daisy says she refuses to congratulate Bowser "no matter how awesome he did".

In Mario Superstar Baseball, Daisy and Bowser share bad chemistry with each other. In Mario Super Sluggers, Daisy has bad chemistry towards Bowser. Bowser has bad chemistry with Baby Daisy but neutral chemistry towards adult Daisy.


Rosalina

Rosalina and Daisy

Daisy and Rosalina VS Mario and Peach in tennis

Daisy and Rosalina are friends. In the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Daisy says she is glad she didn't join Peach and Rosalina on a shopping trip as she'll wait to shop after she is crowned champion. Rosalina also has a quote in which she mentions that the Peach and Daisy took her out for dessert to celebrate her completing the Gymnastics semifinals.

Mario Sports Superstars has art depicting Daisy and Rosalina as a team against Mario and Peach in a game of tennis.


Wario

Daisy and Wario seem to be on negative terms. In Mario Strikers, Daisy might yell Wario's name and cough loud out in disgust if Wario uses his special farting ability. But Daisy is not the only one to do that.

In Mario Kart 7, Wario is Daisy's second rival and Daisy is one of Wario's rivals in Grand Prix races in Mario Kart 8.

In Fortune Street, Daisy seems to think lowly of Wario. If she lands on one of Wario's shops she will comment on how gross and filthy the shop is. If Wario is about to win a game, Daisy says she would've won if she lowered herself to Wario's level.

Interestingly, Tatanga from Super Mario Land is a boss in Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, the game where Wario first appeared and is the main antagonist. Some fans believe Wario hired Tatanga to kidnap Daisy in order to distract Mario so Wario could take over Mario's castle. None of this is confirmed however.

Waluigi

MP4 Waluigi awestruck

Daisy and Waluigi in the mario Party 4 opening

Daisy and Waluigi have a negative relationship. Waluigi and Luigi both have a crush on Daisy, according to the Mario Party 4 guide. Daisy however, does not have feelings towards Waluigi, and this is further evident in other games. In Fortune Street, Daisy seems to think lowly of Waluigi. If she lands on one of Waluigi's low-priced shops, she says that the shop is disappointing, and she isn't surprised the shop belongs to him. She also despises his high priced shops. Their team-name in Mario Party 5 and Mario Party 6 is "Awkward Date". Daisy and Waluigi have bad chemistry with each other in the Mario Baseball series. Waluigi is also one of Daisy's rivals in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Grand Prix mode. Waluigi is also Daisy's rival in Mario Strikrs Charged.


Wendy O. Koopa

Wendy's trophy in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U says that Wendy sees Peach and Daisy as her rivals. The Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games supports this, as Wendy says that Peach and Daisy are "posers" and "lame" when the player talks to her for the first time.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Daisy and Peach are Wendy's rivals when the player selects Wendy in a Grand Prix.


Birdo

Birdo-MP9

Birdo appears to be a friend of Daisy. Their Mario Party 8 team-name is Gallopin' Gal Pals. Birdo is Daisy's Doubles Partner in Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64. Dialogue between the two in Fortune Street also suggest that they are friends.

In Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Daisy's teammates in the Football/Soccer event are Birdos. However, none of these Birdos are the pink, main Birdo, which is because Birdo is a separate playable character in this game.


Yoshi

Daisyyoshi

Daisy and Yoshi talking together in the final cutscene from Mario Super Suggers

Daisy and Yoshi seem to have a friendship. In Mario Party DS, Daisy and Yoshi's team name is Cutie Pies. Yoshi and Baby Daisy have good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers, but Yoshi has neutral chemistry with adult Daisy. This is similar with Luigi, Peach, and Donkey Kong along with their baby counterparts. The ending for Mario Super Sluggers shows Daisy and Yoshi together with Toad watching the fireworks.


Toad

Daisy and Toad seem to be good friends. In Fortune Street, if Daisy lands on one of Toad's low-priced shops she compliments the shop saying it is simple and modest like Toad. Although if Daisy lands on one of Toad's average-priced shops, Daisy will say that the shop is too swank for Toad, and that he needs to know his place. She also hopes Toad having an expensive shop won't break the truce between the Mushroom Kingdom and Sarasaland.
Daisy and toad mpit

Daisy and Toad artwork from Mario Party: Island Tour

Mario Kart: Double Dash's true ending screen (after viewing the credits) shows Daisy and Toad talking together.

In Mario Super Sluggers, Daisy is turned into a statue in the game's Challenge Mode. Toad initially does not want to give Daisy to the player, fearing that they might drop her and that she'll break into many pieces. The ending for Mario Super Sluggers also shows Daisy and Toad together with Yoshi watching the fireworks. However, Daisy and Toad have neutral chemistry in both Mario baseball games.

Additionally Toad and Daisy can also be seen together on the box art for Mario Party: Island Tour.


Toadette

Daisy and Toadette seem to be friends as their team-name in Mario Party 6 is Shopping Buddies.

In the ending screen for Mario Kart Wii, Daisy is seen looking at Toadette with an annoyed face.


Snifits

Daisy's partner for Duel Mode in Mario Party 3 is a Snifit. This is the only time Daisy is associated with the Snifits and it is unknown if there is any further relationship between Daisy and the Snifit species.


Bowser Jr.

Bowser Jr., Mario Party 9

In Mario Super Sluggers, Bowser Jr. turns Daisy into a statue in the game's Challenge Mode, possibly leading to them being on bad terms. However, Daisy and Bowser Jr. share neutral chemistry in the Mario baseball games. In Fortune Street, Daisy refers to Bowser Jr. as a "sweetie," possibly because he is a little kid.


Sarasaland's King

Daisy seems to be on good terms with her Father. Daisy first mentions him in Mario Party 3, stating she never lost to anyone, not even her dad. This could mean he used to play with her.

In Fortune Street, Daisy mentions her dad several times. In this game, she refers to him as "Daddy."


Other

A character in Mario Golf on the Game Boy Color named Azalea bears a strong resemblance towards Daisy. Camelot's Japanese website originally listed her as Daisy's sister, but the idea has since been dropped. Tatanga is frequently mentioned in various bios for Daisy, despite Tatanga not appearing in any recent games. Daisy and Tatanga seem to have a bad relationship in the Nintendo Comics System. There are additional non-direct (implied) relationships that may revolve around Daisy. As examples, Millennium Star, Tatanga and Waluigi might have loving feelings towards her. Please find our theories regarding Daisy and her potential relationships with other characters at Sarasaland Gossip.        

Relationships with non-Mario characters

Amy Rose

In the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Daisy and Amy appear to be friends as they are seen together a few times in the Story Mode. In the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Daisy refers to Amy as being a sweet girl when introducing the player's Mii to Amy in the Road to Rio mode.


Blaze the Cat

In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Blaze is Daisy's rival in Mission Mode. The two of them also share a special winning animation together in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games as well as in the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.


Dr. Eggman

Daisy refers to Dr. Eggman and Bowser as "misfits" at the end of the Story Mode in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games on the Nintendo DS.       


Princess Alena

In Fortune Street, if Alena is close to victory, Daisy might say "I can't believe I'm gonna lose to Alena! I'm more of a princess than she'll ever be!" On a side note, Daisy and Alena have a bit of resemblance to each other, with similar styled orange hair and both being tomboys.


Relevancy

Nintendo's own tumblr confirmed Daisy was an important character to the Mario franchise.

Daisy appears in the game Shadow Spotter through Nintendo of Europe's Nintendo Kid's Club website:

NintendoOfEurope


Daisy appears on the header of the official YouTube of Play Nintendo:

PlayNintendo


Additionally, Daisy appears on Nintendo of America's Twitter header. Daisy is pictured to the right of Mario, and is evidently shorter than Peach in this image. It is notable that out of all artworks used, Daisy's is the newest, while characters such as Toad, Wario, and Waluigi have incredibly outdated reused artworks.

NOATwitter
In early 2016, Nintendo launched a new program My Nintendo to replace the old rewards program of Club Nintendo. Alongside the launch of Miitomo, Nintendo has stated "big changes have come". With this new leaf, Nintendo has changed the banners to Nintendo's YouTube Channel and Nintendo of America's Twitter.

Nintendo of America's twitter header features Daisy again, but this time from an older artwork from Itadaki Street DS. She can just barely be seen above Mario's shoulder. Interestingly, some characters from the previous one such as Waluigi, Bowser, and DK, have been removed, while new characters not present in the previous one (above) appear here, including Birdo, Bowser Jr, and others.

NewTwitter

At the same time, Nintendo's official YouTube account uploaded a similar graphic with a red background, with various characters outlined in a darker red tone. Although the image is a repeating pattern, Daisy can only be seen once here - at the bottom left corner.

NewYoutube

Daisy has her own bio on Play Nintendo under the "Friends" Section. Interestingly, the list of games on her page say that she in Super Smash Bros for 3DS/Wii U, while other non-playable characters such as Toad do not have these games listed on their page.

On Play Nintendo, she is also featured in one of the minigames. Every time, the game lets you choose between two characters before it determines who you picked the most.

Impact

  • Princess Daisy was mentioned in a question on Jeopardy due to Super Mario Land's commercial success in North America.
Daisy Jeopardy
  • The Super Mario Compact Disco album released in the 1990's have some references to Daisy. Daisy even sang one of the songs. Daisy is also referenced in the Super Mario USA song despite not appearing in that game.

Trivia

☀ While Daisy is the princess of Sarasaland, Mario Party 6's website suggests that Daisy currently lives in the Mushroom Kingdom.

☀ Princess Daisy has appeared in over 60 games, which makes her the second most appearing female video game character. Only Peach has appeared in more games (more than 90 games). However, nearly all of these games are spin-off titles, which may be why some people refer to her as the "Queen of spin-offs". Princess Daisy can't be considered as a spin-off only character though, as she has been created for a main game, Super Mario Land.

☀ In the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii guides written by Prima Games, it is stated that Daisy is Peach's cousin. Mario Kart Wii's guide also says that Daisy was saved by both Mario and Luigi from Tatanga. However, Luigi did not appear in Super Mario Land. No Mario game has ever confirmed Peach and Daisy to be cousins, instead just referring to them as friends.

☀ Princess Daisy is one of the few major Mario characters to not have been created by Shigeru Miyamoto. Other examples include Wario and Rosalina.

☀ Many people believe that Gunpei Yokoi created both Daisy and Wario, however he did not create either of them. Gunpei Yokoi has never been credited as a character designer in any game he has been involved with. Wario was created by Hiroji Kiyotake, and no specific creator has been attributed for Daisy. Satoru Okada (director of Super Mario Land) or Hirofumi Matsuoka and/or Masahiko Mashimo (graphic designers for the game) would be more likely to have the creator(s) of Daisy.

☀ Luigi, Waluigi, Tatanga and the fake Millennium Star from Mario Party 3 all have crushes on Daisy.

☀ Princess Daisy's name doesn't change in any of the European localizations (Russian localization not included), excluding some Portuguese magazines which call her "Princesa Margarida" (which still translates to "Princess Daisy" when translated from Portuguese).
