Best Female Characters In the Super Mario Series


The Top Ten

1 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

I'm writing a comment for them Peach lovers, because I feel like I should apologize for hating Peach in the past.
My favorite thing about Peach is how she's so cute and pretty and at the same time still badass. She's super strong in Smash, and I almost always play as her in that game now. She tries to help Mario 24/7, even giving him items when locked up by Bowser all the way at the other side of the Mario universe. She's a staple character in the Mario series and I'm glad that Nintendo helped her improve and develop over the years. - RosalinaX

I always loved Peach. I always loved her figure. I love her pink dress she wears, the two red heels she wears on her feet, her sapphire eyes, her beautiful silky blonde hair, and the crown that's resting on her head. Peach deserves to exist and I want to find this sweetheart princess and kiss her. I love Peach so much. However, I also like Daisy and Rosalina just as much, so please Daisy and Rosalina fans, don't attack me.

Okay.. How is Daisy higher than Peach? Peach gives Mario information and items. Peach even has her own game, Super Princess Peach, where she saves Mario! While Daisy on the other hand, screamed when she saw Bowser the first time when she saw her, and she sits on her lazy ass all day waiting for Mario to rescue her.

Don't worry, I don't hate Daisy, hell, I even got pissed at her in Mario Kart Wii.

I feel like people underestimate Peach. She is one of the best princesses in the Mario franchise. Of course there are other princesses, but she is the best in my opinion

2 Princess Rosalina

My favorite thing about Rosalina specifically is her tragic backstory and childhood. Unlike most other character's, she was given a chance to share her story. I'm also a fan of her design and dress, it definitely sets her apart from the other princesses. Her personality is probably the highlight of her character though, as she is shy and a bit timid but has warmed up over the years to the point where she participates in other spinoff games with the rest of the Mario crew. My last thing I wanted to say was how brave and responsible she was. She literally coped with losing her mother and took in over a thousand Luma's and moved into space with them so she could take care of them. She built an Observatory by herself, and helped Mario save Peach when Mario was in desperate need of her help. My favorite character of all time, not even Toad could rival her. - RosalinaX

Rosalina is probably my favorite mario character only maybe though she is amazing because shes magic pretty nice caring I think shes just amazing

Rosalina is beautiful, sexy, and overall amazing all in one! When she wears her princess outfit, she looks like an angel falling from the sky. In her biker outfit in Mario Kart, it makes her look more sexy. Overall, she is the best female mario character ever!

You're mostly (if not only) talking about Rosalina's appearance. - Qryzx

She deserves to be second. I like Rosalina because of her tragic backstory and her shy and a bit timid personality that has warmed up over the years. I also like her unique design and dress that sets her apart from the other princesses, and how she levitates when she walks. And last but not least, you got to admit it's cute to watch Rosalina read a storybook to the Luma's and whatnot. - RosalinaX

3 Princess Daisy Princess Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

Prettier than every other female character combined. I hate all other females (other than Baby Daisy and Pauline). Daisy is the only one who actually seems like she could be a real person. The others just seem too fantasy like and ridiculous. Rosalina and Peach are girly. Daisy is a tomboy. My fangirl-ism of Daisy has gotten so intense to where I sometimes want to throw fans of Rosalina and Peach down a well full of lava.

Daisy is epic and awesome and a tomboy and pretty and smart and can actually defend herself. When she saw Bowser, she slapped him to the moon.
When Peach gets kidnapped, she just sits there like the spoiled idiot she is and waits for Mario.
Rosalina even needed Mario to protect her galaxy even though she had a wand.

Rosalina actually doesn't have powers. Just a magic wand. Anyone who holds that wand can then use it's powers.

I don't see how people like Rosalina even though she is basically getting rid of 10 characters.

In conclusion, ...more

Daisy is way better that peach because she can at least defend herself, peach is a spotlight stealer and thinks that she is the best well, she is not! Daisy so many good qualitys I lost count. Besides, I hate it when people she peach is better cause she is a sweet blonde, who cares! Daisy rules peach drools.

I love Daisy she is way better than peach she has more personality and carisma and she has more energy and is not so girly like the other ones, I think Nintendo should do a game with daisy on it I mean she is only in Mario Party series, Sports games and Mario Kart series, I also think Daisy's voice played by Deanna Mustard is the best, it is so energic and give Daisy a unique personality and style.

Princess Daisy is a character who disappeared for years. for me daisy is the best character ever. I love her because she is a tomboy and very cute, she is not always damsel in distress. Actually, Daisy deserves her own game! she is much stronger than Peach and does not always seek help. People love Peach only because she is prettier than Daisy? but look Peach is in smash? OK... BUT LOOK! Rosalina made it into smash before daisy does, this is only because Rosalina has to reach higher level and daisy should be always be underrated. that is what Nintendo doing and that is why she daisy is an echo fighter to Peach and giving the same final smash...!

why daisy should be underrated even though she is best female character? Daisy is only after Peach...!
after seeing all the comments given to Peach and Rosalina they are only talking about their figures...oh come on...
Guys, don't look only on the outside look inside and you don't know how much you like Daisy...

Because Peach and Rosalina are more popular characters. Plus, Peach is pretty strong. - RosalinaX

4 Toadette Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

Toadette should be higher then Princess Orange. I'm sorry, but Toadette is so underrated and I personally think she should get more attention. She's cute, lovable, and memorable, and has the only fan base that I haven't seen fight other female leads (Oh wait, she doesn't HAVE a fan base. Poor Toadette.) In conclusion, I think she should stop appearing as a host in Mario Party games and become more popular. Thank you Nintendo for adding her as a playable character in Super Mario Bros Deluxe, but now she has a lot of hate on her because of the whole Peachette thing and it pisses me off. - RosalinaX

I hate how toad and toadette aren't as loved as Rosalina and Yoshi. While Yoshi and Rosalina still being great characters I like toad and toadette way more. Toadette is cute and she has an amazing item in double dash and you can thank toad and toadette for making you go up places in the race with that golden mushroom. Toadette should get HER own game. With her name in the title. - spodermanfan1000

Toadette is THE best! She's cute, adorable, sweet, optimistic, awesome, nice, and THE BOMB! And her boyfriend (Toad) totally shuts down Mario in the original game. (With, "I'm sorry, Mario but the princess is in another castle.) Sorry, Peach and Mario fans, no hateful comments.

A much better character than the three embarrassments above her.

5 Pauline Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

The original Mario girl, this os how you spell her name.

She should place higher.

6 Vivian

Vivian is a very sweet young girl... Ish. (I'm going to go by the English translation. ) Plus anyways, she's hot, in a literal sense. I mean, sure, since she is a shadow, either she doesn't a physically attractive body, but this is hardly relevant since this is based off character and not looks. ' baby Peach is forth at this point, and I hope that's based off physical attraction. In addition, she's a former enemy who you learn to pity then even feel emotionally sad for her having to face the torment of her sisters, and when she joins, you truly see what a sweet girl she is. And heck, fire and shadow abilities sounds as well as womanly charms pretty cool partner to me. Plus anyways, she has just as much, if not probably more character than stereotypical damsels in distress, simplistic galaxy tour guides, and BABIES!

Plus: Pink and white striped wizard hat = Awesome

I think Vivian is the best Paper Mario partner ever! Peach fans, stop voting for Peach and vote for Vivian! This should switch places with Peach if Vivian was last!

Vivian is a great Paper Mario partner! This should be #2 on the list. (Rosalina should still be #1, but anything to get this higher than Peach. )

“One of the shadow group, Vivian appears to be a girl but is really a boy."
That's from the Japanese official guide for the game. She's transgender people, get it right! - RosalinaX

7 Birdo Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

Birdo is my favorite because she's pink she has a bow he wears a diamond ring and she is just so pretty. plus when I first saw her on a game I loved her and I didn't even know her background information and the in Mario golf she was so cute when she lost! I on't know why so much people hate her she's the best female Mario character. and birdo is not a boy! She's a girl! I mean if people like "other girls" then why not birdo I mean birdo wears a bow! She is the best and most fashionable girl.

I like Birdo! She's cute and I love the way she talks. And people who thinks Birdo is a guy: Birdo is a girl! (Of course if you don't agree, please, no hateful comments.)

I love that Birdo is both a man and a woman! Makes me love him more with her unique traits!

Dude you messed up... Birdo is guy who thinks he is a girl!

9 Dixie Kong Dixie Kong

Dixie kong should be known more than she is, she sporty and really athletic if you every played mario basketball she came in as a very handy team member, one of my favourite characters in the mario series

Donkey Kong's daughter. Anyone related to Donkey Kong is amazing!

Dixie Kong has a sense of humor, she looks totally perfect for Diddy Kong

She was going to be in smash brawl, but cut due to time and glitching. Amy monkey from DK is great!

10 Paulina

Poor pauline everyone hates her because Nintendo didn't make her the princess. At least she built mini land not peach who sits around and does nothing.

Pauline is the real original princess instead of stupid peach who is made up. She was on Donkey Kong and all. Peach doesn't do anything. She waits. Rosaline and Pauline do a LOT.

Top 10 Reasosn Why Pauline Is Better Than Princess Peach

Top 1: Pauline has a much better voice than Princess Peach.

Top 2: Pauline has brown hair, Princess Peach has yellow hair (what the hell?! )

Top 3: Her appearance is way better.

Top 4: She deserves to be in more games, I mean, come on! She's older! Unfortunately, she was made as a PROTOTYPE.

Top 5: She is a much better character to rescue. This is why the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series is perfect.

1) That reason isn't even a character trait.

2) How racist.

3) Why do looks matter?

4) So she deserve to be in more Mario Games because she's older? That is stupid.

5) That is an opinion, not a fact.

6) You didn't even bother putting in 10 reasons. - Qryzx

Why is her name mispelled?

15 Baby Peach Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which more.

Why are people hating on a baby? That's not nice. Poor Baby peach has so much hate just because she "cries". She is very fun to play as in Mario kart wii, and I don't want people to be so mean. It makes me sad let's all give her some love

Even though Peach sucks, Baby Peach though is better. She appears on 4 games. Starting with Mario and Luigi Partners in Time, Mario Kart, Mario Sluggers, and on a new coming soon game, Baby Mario and Baby Peach.

She not that great but better than peach - RockStarr

It so cute I hope her don't got bad habit

20 Elder Princess Shroob

But I like I know everything is a female witch is a cackletta is a female I'm pretty sure I found her dna

Don't be silly mushrooms don't grow bigger as a house only princess shroob

In Mario & Luigi : partners in time, once she loses 3500 HP, Then she turns so big with her crown, and if you fail, you need to fight her younger sister again which is annoying.
She is one of the most hardest Mario boss of all-time.

Oh. I forgot. If she turns big, she starts with 3800 HP.

21 Pinky the Pink Ghost

Why is a Pac-Man ghost in here, this is female "Mario" charcters, not female "Pac-man" characters.

Because I am an avid fan of Pac-Man (that decludes Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures). Why is Cackletta not on this list?!

22 Candy Kong Candy Kong

She's hawt. I have nothing against her.

Why it name after candy teehee

23 Lady Bow

Like bow we shoot from a animal


24 Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been more.

Wendy is the only bad girl in super Mario and I like her lipstick

By "Bad Girl" me and this other person meant VILLAIN. Pom Pom is ALSO a female villain, but I prefer Wendy. - DCfnaf

Nicki Minaj would be a great voice for Kootie Pie Koopa.

25 Tippi

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is the best video game of all time by its music, story (NOT ITS PLOT! ), graphics, power-ups, characters (not Princess Peach and her baby self, but definitely the Baby Mario Bros. ), levels, bosses and what else can I say? This game is underrated. That's the truth.
