Peach can hover through the sky if you keep holding the jump command. This is an important technique, even though it’s not a special move.
She delicately floats around.
This is a unique, versatile technique you can use to recover. You can also hover low to put the brakes on an opponent’s attack pattern.
Standard Special Move: Toad
No, not a real toad. Toad, from the Mario series. You know, like a toadstool.
This technique lets the princess use Toad as a shield.
Block the opponent’s attack like this...
...and Toad counterattacks with spores!
The spores spread out in a fan-like flurry. The closer the opponent, the more damage you can deal. It’s probably better to use this technique when you REALLY need it – if you try to reflect everything coming your way, your opponent will find you predictable.
If you can tactfully reel foes in, you can counterattack opponents behind you as well.
Down Special Move: Vegetable
This one is important. It seems that the better the player, the more vegetables they use.
She pulls the vegetable from the ground...
...and throws it as an item!
You can use this as a throwing item so you can throw it in which ever direction you please. It’s perfect to break up your opponent’s rhythm.
By the way, the face on the vegetable randomly changes. You want to watch out for one face though...
There’s a 58-to-1 chance this one will appear, and it can deal damage of 30% or more. The face with dot-shaped eyes also has high striking power.
Be careful not to give it to the opponent!
