Princess Peach is a main character in the Mario franchise, and the princess of Mushroom Kingdom. Peach first appeared in Super Mario Bros. and was created by Shigeru Miyamoto to be the damsel-in-distress throughout most Mario games. She resides in her castle along with many Toads, who act as her loyal servants. Her kingdom is often attacked by the Koopa Troop, a group led by Bowser. Luckily Mario is always ready to save the day!
Peach has an affinity for the color pink, which emphasises her feminine personality and kind temperament. Peach's nature and role as the damsel are often represented with her heart abilities and princess emblems. It's not all damselling though; Peach has taken a more active role as a playable character in many Mario spinoff titles including Super Smash Brothers, Mario Party, Mario Kart and various Mario sports titles!
