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!

Also because of her heart power can heal or kill or even her emotions

Peach is so powerful because she is a healer that is why she doesn't get infected.

Man you missed your chance to look into the symbolism in Chinese peach trees. They are symbols of immortality. This is a wiki excerpt:

"As the Protector, Sun quickly realized the legendary effects of the immortal peaches if they were to be consumed – over 3,000 years of life after the consumption of a single peach"

This is probably why her peaches give health and why Bowser kidnaps her for immortality. And Mario is also a name for the god of war. Bowser is a god. peach is a goddess. and Mario is a god. it's battle of the gods. war, immortality, and fertility.

Instead of saying "kami", couldn't you have just said "god" for the people who don't know Japanese.
lol try arguing that to anna sarkisian
Andrew Madden

This video reminded me of the episode in Mario cartoons where "Princess ToadStool" was kidnapped and Mario and Luigi can't do anything. What did Princess Peach do? She prayed to starman to give her power and she got power kicking "Koopa's" butt while Mario and Luigi says we should be the one doing the rescuing.

the Vibe Scepter has a roll in pleasing her.
The only thought I have is: Does Mario ever get to taste Peaches' cherry?
Hung Tran
the omotions are probably pms
Peach is just into bdsm.

Their god is kinky.

I have said this a year ago, on Mats video(i think)

Peach wants to get kidnapped, lets keep it real.

Once you go koopa, you want it in the poopa/

You're really reaching. Those colors already had those emotional associations anyway, apart from yellow. Blue is another word for sad. Green is used in tons of games for healing. Being angry is seeing red. Etcetera.

if peach a goddess what dose the make Daisy? a goddess sister
jeremiah santander

This would explain Rosalina's power being Peach's kid

She's a damn selfish goddess!

If miyamoto didn't have such an issue with any kind of story/subtext in his games, I could see this being true.
As it stands now, the man who has trouble assigning gender to yoshi is incapable of this.

she is a godess
Conner McPeek
I vote goddess because in supersmash bros brawl she is the best character. I know everyone says that everyone is the best character when used right but princess peach is just to op.

This is way beyond awesome! ^_^ I so enjoyed this, and totally believe it too. Totally! I can see Peach so more clearly as a character now! <3 And yeah, I actually have much more respect for her now. Even though I'll still always love Daisy more than Peach and Rosalina. XD
