Rosalina Is One Of The Taller Characters In Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . December 31, 2013 . 8:30am

The latest batch of Super Smash Bros. screenshots provides a height comparison between Rosalina, Mario and Peach, with Rosalina easily being the tallest of the three.


On Miiverse, director Masahiro Sakurai writes: “Rosalina’s got height! She is seriously tall! However, she boasts an anti-gravity effect, so she’s very light.”

    Of course she is tall.

  • anthony apduhan

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can’t wait what other games can appeal us more ;)

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I wonder if Daisy will one day recibe some recognition, they put Rosalina in the latest mario game (the one with the cat theme) instead of her (would have been nice to have both brothers with their respective princess), is Daisy going to become the next Luigi? will in 10 years or so be a year of Daisy? I they could add her and give her unique moves, and she has been around for longer than Rosalina.

    • totoro

      I recall Luigi being head over heels for Rosalina in one of the Galaxy games.

      • Valtiel Ikari

        well, she is a looker, so thats understandable, but I recon the amount of hints that they are a couple, and a very tight one (I think that it actually officialy said that they are a couple)

        Galaxy 1, I think, where he tells Mario to tell Rosalina he found one of the stars. XD
        Not to mention that the 120 complete stars reward for Luigi is a picture of him and Rosalina.

    • Lalum

      Daisy is pretty much my favorite princess in the Mario universe.

  • Andar

    ”However, she boasts an anti-gravity effect, so she’s very light.”

    What are you implying, Sakurai? Granted, she is also in the heavy weight class in the Mario Kart games.

    • Tyler Beale

      It’s a video game!

    • JoJo_649

      The same case as Mewtwo, hopefully she’ll be better.

    • 하세요

      My theory is her power as the queen of the mothahumpin’ Galaxy she gets to access big ass cars, but on foot she’s fragile.

      • Andar

        But the implications behind what Sakurai stated are that Rosalina is light *because* of her anti-gravity effect. Does that mean that without it, she’s actually rather, dare I say…heavy?

        Yes, I know this is definitely reading too much into what he said, but I do find it amusing nonetheless.

        • Asura

          If somebody is 0.5 meters taller than you, chances are they will probably weigh more.

    • PreyMantis

      She can control the gravity.

  • kylehyde

    All right Peach, of all the character you are the one that has no right to feel jealous of Mario for being nice to another pricess considering that you have flirted with almost all the anthropomorphic cast (including the wii fit trainer and not the male one), unless that you are jealous that Rosalina has not paid attention to you.

    • chibidw

      Peach is the platonic female friend that won’t let you touch her but doesn’t want you going near other women either.

      • God

        Overly attached frienzoner?

    • I feel like she’s chastising Mario for being near Rosalina, but only because that should be her spot (given another pic of the two ladies). Frankly, Peach is becoming more and more of a playa.

      In the first place, I thought it was just a line-up and she was being (independently of them) sassy. x’);

    • Brimfyre

      Watch the animated Super Mario movie from Japan if you want to have your heart ripped out and trampled upon.

      Spoilers: She cuckolds Mario.

      • GamerKT

        All right. I don’t have to watch it now.

      • You mean Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen? I’ve seen the subbed version, and loved it.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      Where do she do this? Can’t find anything of it with a quick google search…

      • Symbol de Au

        Here you go…

        EDIT: I don’t know how to delete the ones I accidently uploaded twice…

  • Göran Isacson

    Think we’re gonna have to have a comparison with Samus to really get a good glimpse of Rosies height, seeing as Peach is crouching and we all know Mario is a shorty-short. I SHAN’T REST UNTIL RELIABLE PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE IS MINE.

  • idrawrobots

    2014, The Year of Rosalina

  • KoRLumen

    So kinda like Samus, in that way? Interesting.

  • Linhua

    … Peach is kinda leaning there… so I wouldn’t say she’s TOO far off. Seems kinda right that the Astral Goddess is a bit of an Amazon compared to the princesses of Mushroom Kingdom.

  • xRaikouShinobix

    Is one of Pikachu’s new specials making himself throw up, because he keeps looking more and more Anorexic with each installment.

    • Gael Summers

      Those are two different things you’re saying there.

      • idrawrobots

        I guess that is the real question, is Pikachu Bulimic or Anorexic? Find out in the new Smash Bros.
        Based on his use of healing items, my guess is Bulimic.

        • Kevin Schwarz

          He is Anorexic, the Bulimic people USUALLY don’t lose weight much. So that’s the answer.

  • I love tall girls =^_^=

  • Rasputing

    What the height comparison between her and Ridley?

  • My girl Rose is all legs! Just like a anime character! Hell Yeah!

  • J_Joestar


  • Audie Bakerson

    I’ve always liked how Rosalina’s twiggy look actually made sense, having grown up at lower than Earth gravity.

  • Christopher McNair

    Rosalina seems redundant with so many princesses already, and the fact that she looks like a dress wearing Samus.

    • Kaihedgie


    • Chow

      A dress that can wear Samus. Must be painful.

    • Symbol de Au

      LOL at hacked upvotes.

      • God


    • Arrei

      Rosie’s not a princess, though.

      Well, she used to be one, but then she became a cosmic deity.

      (Also two princesses is “so many”?)

  • Spirit Macardi

    *looks at third image*

    STARFY! :D

    Please tell me he’s a new playable character!

    • XiaomuArisu


    • idrawrobots

      His transformations would be too good.

    • Kaetsu

      He’s just an assist trophy like in Brawl.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I shall now compare Rosalina’s height with Samus’.

    *Samus is in her Morph Ball and Rosalina is hovering above the floor*

  • XaviIniesta

    Yeah she is!
    You go girl!

  • Jettythesunfish

    You know what they say about tall girls.

    They’re tall.

  • Hinataharem

    Isn’t Rosalina normally gigantic? If so, her height in this game is a nice nod

  • Shadowman

    Mario looking like he’s ready to hit on Rosalina. lol

  • Brimfyre

    While that version of Zelda is smokin’ hot, we’ve had so many different variations of Zelda since TP it seems odd they didn’t go with Skyward Sword Zelda, Tetra, ST Zelda, or Link Between Worlds Zelda. I really wish they leave this game open for DLC characters.

    • Kaetsu

      Skyward Sword Zelda doesn’t seem like much of a fighter to me. She’s frail and dainty. I would love to see Tetra as a playable character though.

      • Brimfyre

        Well of all the Zelda princesses she’s actually a goddess. She could actually fight by summoning the other Goddessess or Fi.

        Rosilina isn’t much if a fighter and they found a way to use her.

  • AS OC

    when i saw rosalina’s dress, i immediately thought of elsa from frozen <3

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Year of Rosalina

  • katamari damacy

    STARFY is overdue to be a playable character. Japan exclusivity didn’t stop them from including Roy and Marth from Fire Emblem!
