Baby Peach is a minor character in the Mario series designed to be the toddler counterpart of Princess Peach. Since then, she has become a recurring character in spinoff installments alongside Baby Daisy, much like Baby Mario and Baby Luigi did before them.
Baby Peach’s personality bears similarity to that of her older self. She is mischievous, friendly, clever, pure-hearted, and enjoys the company of others. Baby Peach also exudes charm and elegance. Her playful nature can be seen through her enjoyment of races, baseball, and the antics of Toadsworth and Toadsworth the Younger in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. However, Baby Peach is quick to tears and tantrums when she gets upset. She uses her temper to control those around her, such as Baby Bowser when, in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, she cries until he agrees to help the adult Mario and Luigi from being attacked by the Shroobs.

Mario is said by many to be the most famous character in video game history. Mario games, as a whole, have sold more than 210 million units, making the Mario franchise the best-selling video game franchise of all time. Outside of the Super Mario platform series, he has appeared in video games of other genres, including the Mario Kart racing series, sports games, such as the Mario Tennis and Mario Golf series, role-playing video games such as Paper Mario and Super Mario RPG, and educational games, such as Mario Is Missing! and Mario’s Time Machine. He has inspired television shows, film, comics and a line of licensed merchandise. Since 1995, he has been voiced by Charles Martinet. (Read more on WikiPedia.org)
Goombas reappear in the Wii U game, New Super Mario Bros. U. They maintain their appearance from New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but also have a lighter colored, rounded variety with black stems on their heads. These most likely contribute to the Waddlewing. Mega Goombas, Grand Goombas, and Prickly Goombas also appear as well.
In the Japanese-exclusive anime movie Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen!, two Goombas, who work for King Koopa, appear throughout the film, attempting to halt Mario, Luigi, and Kibidango in their search for Princess Peach.
These two Goombas first appear shortly after Mario and Luigi start their quest and follow the Mario Bros. to a camp they have set up for a night’s rest. Luigi, however, has grown hungry and is unable to sleep. The Goombas then trick Luigi by saying they are mushrooms, and Luigi, desperate for food, follow them into a small clearing filled with strange, emotion-inducing mushrooms. Luigi (and Mario, who eventually finds his brother in the mushroom field) is eventually kidnapped by a large Paratroopa.(Read more on MarioWiki.com)
Yoshi appears in New Super Mario Bros. U as a ridable character once again. He can perform the Flutter Jump and is able to eat berries. They’re only Green, other than that, he behaves like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Baby Yoshis also return in magenta, blue & yellow colors and have different abilities. (Read more on wikia.com)
Bee Mario is the form Mario takes upon obtaining a Bee Mushroom in Super Mario Galaxy. This power-up allows Mario to fly for a limited period of time, in order to reach places higher and further than he can reach without it. Landing on any surface recharges Mario’s ability to fly relatively quickly, so that he can take off again, but landing in water, as with any power-up in the game, reduces him to his regular state. Another ability Bee Mario possesses is that to climb vertically on walls covered with honey; and, because Bee Mario is light, he is able to rest on certain flower petals and clouds: any other form of Mario falls straight through these.
Its first appearance in the game is in the Honeyhive Galaxy, with further occurrences in Gold Leaf Galaxy, Sand Spiral Galaxy, Sea Slide Galaxy and Honeyclimb Galaxy. (Read more on Wikia)
Bowser is the main antagonist in most Mario games. He is arguably the most recognizable video game villain ever, having been in the original Super Mario Bros. and in most Mario games ever since. He frequently kidnaps Princess Peach in an attempt to rule the Mushroom Kingdom. He is the king of the Koopa Troopas and has one child – Bowser Jr. Originally, he had seven other children – Ludwig von Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Roy Koopa, Iggy Koopa, Wendy O. Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr., and Larry Koopa, but the Koopalings, as they are known, are officially simply unrelated ‘mini-Bowsers.’ In unusual circumstances, Bowser is known to help Mario if he must. Notable examples would be in Super Mario RPG: the Legend of the Seven Stars, and Super Paper Mario,
Bowser is portrayed as a large, fire-breathing reptilian beast with a turtle-esque carapace and a deep, rumbling roar. While an intelligent being and often warlock-like in behaviour, Bowser seemingly suffers from an inability to learn from his mistakes, in particular when it comes to his repeated battles with Mario. Of particular note is Bowser’s ever-varying size – starting as tall as Super Mario in Super Mario Bros., he has since varied from about twice Mario’s size to positively gargantuan, as seen in Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Kalimari Desert is a race course in Mario Kart 64. It is the fourth and final race of the Mushroom Cup. The course’s most notable feature is the train track that goes through a mesa. The train constantly moves around the track, often crossing through the racers’ path. Depending on what mode is being played, the train may or may not have coaches attached to it. If the player is on the track or runs into it, the player will be thrown in the air. It is possible to drive on the train’s track, however this will cost the racer time. It is possible, but very difficult, to cross the train track while the train is there by driving through the gap between the coaches.
The race starts out next to a large cliff formation, upon the first turn racers see how empty the desert really is. At the end of the turn the racers encounter the train for the first time. After passing the tracks the players race alongside the track of the train (though it is in a cave and not visible) eventually running into it a second time. After this encounter the racers race along the edge of the map and eventually advance back to the finish line. (Read more on Mariowiki)
Shine Sprites are golden entities formed in the sun’s image that first appear in Super Mario Sunshine. They act as guardians of Isle Delfino and are the source of the island’s sunshine. They are also Super Mario Sunshine’s equivalent to Super Mario 64′s Power Stars. Their presence is necessary to sustain the lifestyle of Isle Delfino’s population, so they are thus held very dear to the island’s inhabitants. Under normal circumstances, Shine Sprites gather in great numbers at the Shine Gate, a large structure in the center of Delfino Plaza. They can be scared away from their gathering spot though. When Shine Sprites scatter, their collective power weakens and the island gets covered in a haze that blocks out sunlight. There are 120 Shine Sprites on Isle Delfino. Although they are mainly associated with that island, Shine Sprites can appear in other places as well. (Read more on mariowiki.com)
Princess Peach’s Castle (also known as Mushroom Castle) is the castle in which Princess Peach and many Toads, including Toad and Toadsworth, reside. The rooms inside the castle vary from game to game, as can the castle’s location. It is recognized by a tall tower standing in the center of the castle and is supported by four towers along the outside walls in most games. In main Mario titles the castle is normally seen on grassy plains away from civilization while Paper Mario series sometimes depicts it in a busy town. Super Mario Galaxy and it’s successor however show it to be in the same town but in a less crowded area. Although this general statement can vary, the castle is always found in Toad Town.
