In our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Daisy Guide, we talk about what changes have been brought on board for Daisy including her moves, combos, playing as Daisy, and countering her.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Daisy
This will mark the first playable appearance for Daisy who has appeared in previous games but as Assist Trophies or in cutscenes.
She is an Echo Fighter to Peach, meaning she will inherit a large part of her moves list and show striking similarities in some of the animations as well.
In addition to different colors for her original costume, she will be receiving an alternate costume: an adorable white colored one that is quite similar to Peach’s alternate white costume.
There are three ways of going about when trying to unlock this character. The first is to defeat Dry Bowser’s Spirit at Dracula’s Castle in the World of Light story mode.
Alternatively, playing through the Classic Mode as Falco will also help you unlock Daisy. Lastly, the third option will be to play multiple matches of Versus Mode as Jigglypuff to unlock Peach’s Echo Fighter.
Aptly put, Daisy has a more cheerful and upbeat personality compared to Peach. In addition to there being different taunts and victory poses for the two Echo Fighters, Daisy has one less idle yet energetic stance than Peach’s.
Daisy’s moves are always accompanied by flower petals compared to Peach’s hearts. Daisy’s Final Smash also springs up daisies instead of peaches, but largely the animation is the same for both.
In contrast to Peach’s Red Toad, Daisy uses Blue Toad for counters and throws. Finally, the move Daisy Bomber is much faster than Peach Bomber when it is executed while on the ground.
Daisy is a light character with aerial mobility as one of her greatest strengths. She can float for 2.5 seconds in the air.
Her aerial mobility combined with the forward aerial attack can deal a lot of damage.
Daisy uses her Toad to counterattack the opponent’s attacks. When either Daisy or Toad are attacked, the latter retaliates the spores, hitting the enemy multiple times.
This can be used to protect yourself against recovery moves with high damaging hitboxes.
Her biggest weakness is opponents with faster movement speed. Characters like Shulk and Kirby can easily overwhelm her before she can do anything.
Her throwable vegetable being a projectile item can be picked up by opponents and used against her.
Another one of her weaknesses is her floating ability that can be vulnerable to juggling and vertical combos.
