Why does she have the same moveset as Peach?
For starters, I’m currently addicted to Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, so don’t take this the wrong way, but it really mashes my buttons that Peach has the same moveset as Peach. It got me thinking why? Is it because they’re both girls? Or maybe because they wear a similar dress? Or maybe because Nintendo was being lazy? I’m not sure which of those it was or whether it was something totally different, but it really bothers me that Nintendo would choose to do this.
I think my biggest issue is Peach has a moveset that pays homage to her Super Mario 2 days, such as floating or the turnips which are fine in and of themselves however Daisy has them too and she wasn’t in the friggin game! Does Daisy just float around because Peach taught her some cool trick? It’s just not right. I’m all for her being put in the game, I mean she is the more levelheaded of the two princesses, well, I would think due to getting captured less over the years, but what do I know. I just wish she had her own moves. They could’ve paid homage to her playable appearances in Mariokart or Mario Tennis, but nope we got the lazy same moveset as Peach.
I’m not sure on the exact differences which are extremely minimal, but they could’ve made it at least like a Pichu/Pikachu type of thing where one is stronger, but has a flaw. I’d even settle for like one or two moves being different such as Mario and Luigi, or the Villager and Isabelle. Well all we really got with this is essentially 14 Peach skins. You give us this nonsense and no Waluigi Nintendo what gives?
Rant Over. Until next time on “What Mashes My Buttons” (working title comment some suggestions below if you think you have better.)
