Meet The 6 Most Popular Girls Of The Mario Franchise

We all know Mario, Luigi, Toad, Wario, Bowser, and many other famous characters from the Mario franchise.

They've been around for a long time, and they're very iconic.

Not as much attention is given to some other characters of the same universe, though.

For example, did you know that Toad has a sister? Do you know who Mario saved in the first Donkey Kong game?

Well, if I just made you curious, stick around and get to know the 5 girls of the Mario Universe:

Female Characters in the Mario Franchise

Peach, the Mushroom Princess

This princess needs no introduction. We all have saved her way too many times in too many different games.

The princess of the Mushroom Kingdom is always being kidnapped by Bowser.

There are many games that you get to play as her PeachMario Bross 2, Super Smash Bross, and Mario Kart are a few examples.

Peach is constantly presented as delicate, brave, and classy. She's an old fashion, loveable princess, but Super Smash showed us that she can hold her own!

Daisy, the other Princess

Although she is not as famous as Peach, Daisy has been in over 80 games of the franchise.

She is known as a competitive, light-hearted person and is speculated to be Luigi's love interest.

At first, she was meant to be just a copy of Peach, but from another land. With time, the princess of Sarasaland eventually became her own person with a unique design and personality.

Toadette, Toad's Sister

She is Princess Peach's assistant and Toad's little sister. Toadette is basically a female version of Toad.

She also lives in the mushroom kingdom and has shown to be very cheerful and energetic. Her bouncing pigtails are one of her traits that stands out.

She first appeared in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, but has been in many other different games since then.

Maybe in time, we'll see her energetic personality more fleshed out in a future game. The worst characters have been given the spotlight, so who knows?

Wendy O. Koopa, the Female Koopa

Wendy is the only female of the Koopa clan, which was originally presented as Bowser's children.

Being Bowser's only daughter, she is a bossy, spoiled, daddy's girl.

Many people don't know this, but she was named after Wendy O. Williams, the lead singer of the Plasmatics, a Punk Rock Band. Wendy has appeared in Mario Games as a boss at least 15 different times!

Rosalina, the Watcher of the Cosmos

Rosalina, also known as Rosetta in Japan, has first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy.

Ever since, she has been playable in several other Mario games. After her first appearance, she was already a fan favorite, earning her place as heroin in the Mario franchise.

Pauline, the first Damsel in Distress

She has appeared in over 20 games of this franchise since she was kidnapped by a young Cranky Kong in the first Donkey Kong game.

Although she was first introduced as a love interest to Mario, this idea was quickly dropped. Peach became the plumber's love interest, and Pauline is now portraited as a friend of him.

Final Words

Did we forget any important girl of the Mario Franchise? Did you know that Toad has a sister?

I was certainly surprised to learn that Pauline was Mario's first love! Do let us know if you know any other fun facts about the Mario girls!
