Princess Peach is THE DAMSEL of the video gaming world. But is she really in distress? Despite what you may have thought, Peach is actually one of the most powerful characters in the Mushroom Kingdom. Digging into Nintendo's lore and Japanese culture, GG explains why this lovable Princess is far from being a damsel in distress - rather she is an almighty Goddess!

Eh... I'll just ask USA to launch a B-83 Nuclear bomb on the Mushroom Kingdom, and then we will be fine about that freak called peach... 2 seconds later My life completed, a pile of turd is left on the ground :D now I won't have to deal with her in Super Mario 64

P Peach And god "the ultimate variable" have the same problem. "Getting board" and it is the very reason for existence!

I wish there was a Death Note game for GG to have an excuse to do it

Well, I guess I found another video game airhead besides Crash Bandicoot.

I really don't believe it. First and foremost, Peach is a brain dead bonehead blonde who keeps stealing Daisy's spotlight.

Super Princess Peach itself is based on Shinto, she does NOT have those powers when she goes home, they are controlled by Perry and fueled by Vibe Island. It's my personal favorite Mario game, about my favorite character. Peach is super powerful, but you didn't even mention her curse lifting power circa 1985. Not to mention, I think we can all agree that Peach /could/ not get captured anymore, but then we wouldn't have Mario games anymore.

Not to be a jerk but I just think peach is an air head not a powerful goddess I think Nintendo just wanted a damsel in distress for Mario to rescue
So if peach is not happy she will turn in to basically the devil?
She's kind of evil, or a danger. An amoral force of nature that's often bad for us, sort of like Godzilla or Haruhi.

I'd say the Emotions are sort-of inspired by Mitama, but that it does'nt mean she's a full on goddess. The human-ish princesses such as Peach and Daisy could instead be environmental demigoddesses over their respective kingdoms.

So maybe Bowser kidnapping Peach and then Peach being saved by Mario? Just part of the great scheme of things in their "wacky fantasy" world.

Every theory does and does not match with other theory's. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENCE
Jourdon Patron
Could please do one on Rosalina?
Goddess? Do they have a Goddess dedicated to sluts?
Jhavonte Falkner
peach is no goddess she is a red mist period dragon.
Zelda Freak
Her crown has tear shaped gems that were red, blue, green, and yellow
Night Shade
Peach being a goddess also kinda explains why she looks the same age as Rosalina.
Evan Choi
No peach is just stupid
Simone Hawthorne
This is a good theory
Simone Hawthorne

Bob de builder
I thought he said peach was a commie (communist)
Arlene Cardona
But can't she only use her emotion powers cuz of the vibe sector on the island -_-

Couldn't help but notice, at the end when he mentions Amaterasu supposedly the most powerful god, in Naruto the black flame (also called Amaterasu) is unstoppable. Then there is Okami the game where you get a bunch of abilities from other gods. I just thought that was an interesting connection.

And if she was a goddess, why can she not just boop bowser to death?
