Princess Peach this time has gone to Rogueport to see what she wants alone without Toadsworth being paranoid about her getting in danger in holidays. After looking around for some minutes, a strange merchant asked if she wanted to buy something from his wide assortment of items. Peach eventually asked what could be inside a strange pretty "box", wich the merchant responded by saying that the strange box holds a map leading to a legendary treasure inside it, BUT the box has a magic look on it that will only open for a pure and noble heart, even the merchant admits that it will not do such of a reaction if one as himself touches it, for Peach tho the merchant feels a strong chance of Peach being able to open it. He asks Peach to take the box and see it for herself, and when she opened the box a strong light came out. Eventually Peach ends up inside the X-Naut Fortress where X-Nauts have taken her to speak with Sir Grodus. When speaking, Sir Grodus considers Princess Peach as his "pet" and tells them where the mystical map is. Eventually after both of them arguing, A X-Naut announces news about how the Crystal Star they though Hooktail had got nabbed by someone. Sir Grodus now knowing about the dissapearance of the Crystal Stars asked if they also defeated that Hooktail creature, wich the response is yes. According to the news, it was a mustached dude in a red hat and blue overalls who pulled it off, Peach accidently saying Mario eventually got thrown back into the holding room. Waiting in her room, Peach wished that atleast Toadsworth or Mario knew about her being kidnapped, takes a shower and feels like a new princess. Eventually after walking around, she meets TEC-XX (TEC): the labotary's main computer, a flawless and perfect one in its reason. Peach asked about that "awful" Sir Gordus, but TEC responds by saying that he is not awful, he is actually a very great person. She asks why did he guide her here, but he is not sure because of an unusual program deviation that occured when he observed her earlier, and his higher-brain circuitry malfunctioned and nearly overheated at her image, all of these events are new to him. Peach thinks that TEC has actually a crush on her, because of how he needs to observe and know more about her through her journey in the X-Naut Fortress, but she does not think of that because of how TEC is a computer. Peach eventually tells him that he might be in love with her, but he cannot understand what "love" is, she eventually explains that love tells you when you want to be with a person forever, it makes you feel happy. TEC asks if Peach would teach him how to feel "love" but she says that he wouldn't care because he's a computer. TEC describes himself as a "perfect computer" so he wishes nothing else than simply understand love, he can also grant any wishes but not letting Peach escape. After sleeping, Peach wonders if Mario saw the mail she sent, nor how is everyone doing at the castle, TEC also starts feeling something towards the Princess by keeping "surveillance" on her. When asking how in the world is she gonna dance with TEC, TEC creates a hologram of Peach, and both of them dances together, After waking up, TEC asks Princess Peach to go where Sir Gordus is and ask him something because of something that brought is "attention", TEC recommends to get the soldier's uniform and change it in to avoid any troubles. After asking to Gordus what do they want to do with Peach, he responds by saying that he wants nothing to do with her. Peach really wants to know answers for the Crystal Stars and the Legendary Treasure, but these questions are prohibited by Gordus, TEC then asks Peach to take a quiz to do communication as usual. Next Morning, TEC asks Peach to sneak into Sir Gordu's room and look for a data disk, because he has no access to data from computers not linked to the network. To go into Gordu's Room, she has to become invisible but firstly put all the potions in the Concoctionator, after putting the disk in in the computer and connect it to the computer, she goes back to the computer room and TEC analyzes the data. Next Morning, TEC tells Peach what Sir Gordu's plans are, and why she is being held there, so TEC decides to let Peach escape. When Peach contacts Mario about everything, Sir Gordus comes in and realizes what Peach and TEC are up too, so he decides to cut the whole system down of TEC, aswell with all data relating to Princess Peach.

Peach in Paper Mario: Color Splash.

Paper Mario: Color Splash

In Color Splash, Princess Peach is first seen going to Prism Island to investigate the strange disappearance of her Toads. For a portion of the game, she can be found in the inn and will heal Mario whenever he interacts with her. Halfway through, she is once again captured by Bowser. She is not seen again until the end of the game when Mario rescues her. However, she does leave Mario videos through Holo Peaches which are scattered along his quest.

Paper Mario: The Origami King

In The Origami King, Peach is seen as an origami character thought to be controlled by King Olly. She asks Mario if he will crease himself and be reborn, just like her but then says it doesn't matter as his answers are paper thin.

Personality

Princess Peach could be considered the ideal model of a princess. No matter what situation she finds herself in, she retains her poise and grace. She is just as comfortable, however, exploring the world with Mario and friends, showing courage and spunk befitting her adventurous nature. She is kind and compassionate, often putting the needs of others before her own. Finally, Princess Peach is very relaxed; the rare occasions that she loses her composure, however, often result in a fit of indignant verbal thrashings.

Physical Appearance

Princess Peach is moderately tall, though still standing nearly a head above Mario. She has a slender figure, which she modestly covers in her trademark pink dress. Her elegant white elbow-length gloves and crown complete the ensemble, neatly accenting her flowing blonde hair. She has a sweet disposition and is rarely seen without a smile on her face.
