Princess Daisy, or simply Daisy, is a female character in the Mario series. She is a Medium character just like her best friend Princess Peach. (except in Mario Kart 7, where she is considered "light" which is traditionally the lightest, but in Mario Kart 7 light is the second lightest, beaten by tiny.) She is a spunky tomboy, and loves flowers. Her wardrobe is very similar to Peach's, only she wears orange instead of pink. She is by far the best and fastest medium character in Mario Kart Wii. Her best friend is Princess Peach, and her boyfriend is Luigi. She is the princess of her kingdom Sarasaland. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!, every time she wins, she says "Hi, l'm Daisy," which is one of the things that made her infamous. There is a theory that she has a third eye on the back of her head, however, this was only shown in the back of her head of her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee. In the Super Mario Bros. movie, she is apparently half dinosaur and half human.
