12 Better Girlfriends For Mario

It's time to cut Peach loose, buddy.

2. Princess Daisy (Mario series)

Nintendo / Via

Luigi might have a thing for her, but he's had plenty of time to make a move and hasn't. Like Peach, she's royalty, but she's more cheerful and sassy than her pink counterpart.

6. Tetra (Legend of Zelda series)

Nintendo / Via

Tetra is a plucky pirate girl who'd have no problem keeping up with Mario. Plus, she turns out to be (spoiler!) an incarnation of Zelda, so she's got the same royal status as Peach.

7. Lina (Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic)

As a kid everyone chose Peach in Super Mario Bros. 2 because she could fly. Thing is, that wasn't really Peach. The original Japanese version of the game was called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and the floating girl was a badass chick named Lina.

12. Sonic the Hedgehog

Sega / Via

Hey, who says Mario is only into ladies? Pairing him up with Sega's most popular mascot would lead to the greatest power couple in gaming history. '90s Nintendo kids could finally settle their decades-long feud with Genesis kids.
