I've noticed that lots of people hate Princess Peach lately. Am I the only person who still likes her?

A Modest Proposal: Nintendo should give Princess Peach to Intelligent Systems (the creators of Paper Mario) so that all of her thoughts and actions are determined by Intelligent Systems. The folks at IS clearly like Peach a whole lot. In Paper Mario, Peach is a spy who later becomes a master of disguise. In The Thousand Year Door, Peach gives support to a computer who is feeling emotions for the first time. Some people thought that subplot was corny ... but I actually liked it.

Peach gets even better in Super Paper Mario. Her conversation with Francis in that game is hilarious and I also like the part where peach beats up Mimi by herself and then saves Mimi's life immediately afterwards.

This is the real Peach now.

I like Princess Peach, since I have gotten back into Nintendo she has been a character I most like to choose in Mario Kart and Smash, although I do want to get 3D World. I have felt that after a lot of things not changing that femininity is kind of refreshing.

Peach is annoying to me since it seems like she lucks out a lot. Especially in the earlier Mario Party games. Though that might just be how it seems. She's also quite annoying when she wins in those games. Out of all the major Nintendo characters, she's probably my least favorite.

I like how she could fly in the old SNES Mario. She could be a bit clumsy to play as though. I can't remember which SNES Mario game was which.

You could play her in SNES games? Or do you mean NES? I that case the game you are refering to is Super Mario 2 ( the EU/US version )

Anther Thing: In The Thousand Year Door, Peach types for half a second before pressing send and Mario receives an E-Mail that takes up four text boxes. How did she do that?

I think most people are just sick of her being kidnapped nearly all the time. Also Peach is refined, elegant and girly even in the Super Smash Brothers series when she fights, and teen-adult male Americans in general hate that even when the character is female, unless she has gigantic boobs or is barely clothed, like Princess Daphne in Dragon's Lair. That's why a lot of people like Daisy better because of her tomboyish personality, even though she's still pretty girly and only a supporting character in multiplayer games, she can and does even literally slap Bowzer into the sky in one game! Teen-adult male Americans want characters to be hardcore, rude, arrogant, and full of bad attitude. That's why the old ads for Kirby made in the US make him look mean and angry instead of the happy, friendly creature he usually is, and they put angry eyes on him on his game covers. The reason teen male Americans like him now is because of the fridge horror logic of the way Kirby inhales his enemies.

Technically she didn't fly, she hovered/floated briefly. She gained the ability in Super Mario Bros 2 on NES ( the modified Doki Doki Panic, later released in Japan as Super Mario USA ) and has used it in ports of SMB2 as well as in Super Mario 3D World, Super Paper Mario, Super Princess Peach and the Smash Bros series.

And I love Peach....first Amiibo I bought for a reason. I'm honestly more sick of always having to beat Bowser as the big bad in every Mario game....why don't Wart and/or Tatanga return? How about a main Mario game with Fawful or Dimentio as the big bad?

I never liked Peach, in any game. She's annoying in every game. I liked Daisy, but we've seen little to her, unfortunately. In the Mario Party games I always pick Boo.
