You need to beat Lightning Cup on Mirror 150 cc. Self explanatory. I don't know why she's only number 2. I only got her because I played Super Mario Galaxy, which gives you Rosalina for free. (Maybe that's why she's only number 2) - MarioBros11

She can be the easiest or the hardest to unlock.

I loved her in this game because she had luma with her. I unlocked her the easy way Mario Galaxy.

Rosalina is the hardest to unlock especially if you're using small weight characters because the difficulty level is so high you can easily 7th place or lower because you always get screwed up by dastardly items like the Blue Shell or the Sledge Brother and you have to have at least a single star on every cup in Mirror Mode. She's tougher to unlock than the Big Piranha Plant and King Boo combo in Double Dash dare I say it.

It's Not that this one was Hard, It's it Took so Long to Unlock - ChiefMudkip

6 Daisy 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.

What she's so easy - MarioBros11

So hard to unlock it took me two whole years to unlock her. I rember I wanted her so bad I started to cry. The whole match I was like SERIOUSLY DONKEY KONG I HATE YOU! I was so loud I almost woke my dad up. When I finally got her I started crying happy tears. I am so sad because my mkwii game just went to game heaven. NOO!

It's good when Daisy ain't around because <cough, cough> HI I'M DAISY

This girl is the SECOND HARDEST TO UNLOCK you have to get at least one star on 150 CC special cup to unlock her and is VERY rewarding RIGHT when you get her you get the BEST medium character in the game!
