Okay, I always find it a little odd that people consider Super Princess Peach sexist because the gimmick revolves around Princess Peach having emotion based abilities. I see people make mood swing jokes and PMS jabs whenever it’s brought up. These are people who obviously have never actually played Super Princess Peach.
I have played Super Princess Peach. I own it, and have 100% completed it. Let me tell you what the actual plot of this game is. Bowser has gone to Vibe Island and steals a magic item called the Vibe Scepter, and then uses it to render everyone in the Mushroom Kingdom overly emotional and defenseless.
Mario and Luigi? Useless and easily captured.
Peach? IMMUNE. See, as it turns out, Peach, rather than being treated as “overly emotional”, is actually so on top of her emotions that instead of being rendered hysterical while on Vibe Island, she gets magic emotion powers that she can control at will. So she gets herself a talking umbrella, beats up of a bunch of dudes, and then eventually slaps the shit out of a giant Bowser.
Peach saves Mario and Luigi and her entire kingdom by being the only goddamn person around who can keep her feelings in check.
BECAUSE THAT’S HOW SUPER PRINCESS PEACH ROLLS.
Some food for thought for the topic of Super Princess Peach earlier from a friend of mine who has actually played it.
Ahahahahahahahaha “Vibe Scepter”?
One reason I really like Puella Magi Madoka Magica is because they actually gave a reason for the main character to have super abilities better than anyone else.
Even better, the reason isn’t an excuse designed to shoosh genre nitpickers, it’s a key element of the plot and aligns with a major theme.
