  • During development of the game, along with the introduction of Waluigi, the developers were also going to introduce a bad version of Princess Peach named WaluPeachie but this character was scrapped due to Shigeru Miyamoto 's disliking of the idea of having an "evil Peach" and have decided to revive Princess Daisy instead.
