I really like this concept for Daisy. I can easily see her being the princess who can handle herself (I'd love to see her swing the bat at say Bowser's face when he tries to kidnap her) and really wish Nintendo would use the character more to help develop not just a personality like this but also her relationship with Luigi.
thanks! she seems to be a pretty energetic, tough, and sporty type of character so i just sort of mashed that up and this happened. she was gonna hold a tennis racket but the bat seemed cooler. i do wish daisy was put in the main series again. :/
I agree. I feel both Daisy and Waluigi could become more interesting characters if Nintendo actually used them outside of sports and side games. Even if they are just "lazy re-colours" of existing characters, I believe that it can be a great way to get the ball rolling and then evolve them into a more fleshed out, detailed character. The Mortal Kombat ninjas in the later games are an excellent example of this, especially the most recent one. I've always considered Luigi to be my favourite Mario brother and while I hate the "Plumber A saves Princess B from villain C" concept, I'd frankly accept a "Luigi has to save Daisy from Waluigi" storyline if it gave the characters a chance to grow and develop although I would prefer a much more original story. Perhaps Luigi saves Daisy half way through the game, or she manages to escape and she joins him as the energetic, tough, sporty type you portrayed her as to help him stop Waluigi.
