The 3 Little Princesses is a 28-page Super Mario Bros. fan-comic by Yves Bourgelas (TheBourgyman). It begins with Rosalina becoming stranded on Earth. Peach and Daisy decide to have a sleepover together while Rosalina is stranded.


In honor of the comic's ten-year anniversary, a sequel was started revolving around Daisy being jealous of Peach and Rosalina's friendship.

This comic provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Jerkass: Daisy and, especially, Peach are bullies.
  • Adaptation Personality Change:
    • Daisy is more reserved than in the games and has self-esteem issues.
    • Peach is a self-centered bully and is much more energetic than in the games.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Both Daisy and Peach refer to Rosalina as "Rosie". They also like to call each other "dear" a bit.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Mario and Luigi aren't involved in the story because they went on a vacation where no one would get kidnapped (because the princesses aren't there). Their only appearance shows Mario completely bored, wishing someone would get kidnapped so he can alleviate his boredom with an adventure.
  • Call-Back:
    • On the first page, Peach explains that Mario went on vacation without her after the last two times they went together. There, Luigi is regaling him with a line he heard from his adventure during that time Mario went missing.
    • On the third page, Rosalina identifies Peach as one of the Star Children identified in Yoshi's Island DS and explains she knows about her from Mario's space adventure.
    • Rogueport comes up when Peach mentions where she got her cake mix.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Peach is initially friendly with Rosalina, until the latter reveals she already knows Mario. Daisy laughs at the resulting "Who the hell are you?"
  • Duct Tape for Everything: Rosalina mentions getting by using cosmic duct tape to hold the observatory together until she can get to a mechanic.
  • Easily Forgiven: Averted with Daisy, who isn't too quick to forgive Rosalina for calling her out.
  • Advertisement:
  • Even the Girls Want Her: After Daisy's makeover in part 2 starts drawing all of the attention from the male Toads, Rosalina herself, while trying to back Peach's claims, ends up blushing while saying Daisy is very pretty in her classic form.
  • Fusion Dance: Implied when past!Daisy comes out of the mirror and clutches modern!Daisy's head and wishes for the two to be one again. The bright light and later reappearance of classic!Daisy only seems to support this.
  • Here We Go Again!: The comic ends with Peach and Daisy stuck on the observatory until it can get fuel, at which point they declare a "SLEEPOVER!" again, much to Rosalina's horror.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: After realizing the cake mix had been switched with cement mix, Rosalina has this reaction when she licked the batter off the spoon.
  • Manchild: Rosalina never learned not to sit too close to the TV and still needs a light on when she sleeps. She apparently never finished growing up, given that she left for space when she was young and lost her mother early on.
  • Meaningful Name: Inverted. The fruit "peach" is named after Princess Peach.
  • Medium Awareness:
    • When Daisy calls for Peach to come see Rosalina's eye, Peach tells her she didn't have to yell since she was just off-panel.
    • In part 2, past!Daisy explains everything in detail in between two pages, and notes that modern!Daisy's summary of said explanation saved a whole page.
  • Mythology Gag: Daisy briefly mentions Friendly Floyd, a minor character from the first half of the Super Mario Adventures comic.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: When Daisy shows up in her classic form in part 2, the first thing she does is laugh like "OH-HOHOHOHOHO!", complete with her index finger extended right underneath her mouth.
  • Noodle Incident: Peach wakes up from an apparently reoccurring nightmare screaming for Bowser to stop feeding her tea. It's apparently something that happened to her once.
  • Oh My Gods!: Rosalina uses "Holy Star Bits".
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Rosalina's iconic hairstyle hides a dilated eye that is sensitive to light. It apparently became dilated specifically because it is always covered.
  • Precision F-Strike: "TO HELL WITH THE DAMN LIGHT!"
  • Primal Fear: Rosalina can't sleep in her observatory as she has trouble sleeping without the lights on.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Rosalina finally snaps when she discovers Peach had the cosmic duct tape all along and forgot about it.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Rosalina delivers a devastating one to Peach and Daisy following the above-mentioned Rage Breaking Point:
    Rosalina: (to Peach) Don't you ever call me Rosie again, you poor, ridiculous imitation of a princess! Not only are you the most shallow and obnoxious being I have ever met, but you clearly don't have what it takes to be an adequate leader of a kingdom, let alone a good host for a sleepover!
    Rosalina: (to Daisy) Well, you aren't any better than your little friend! You're a pathetic stooge with no self-esteem whatsoever, who pretends to lead a kingdom that nobody has ever seen! Oh, and you're unspeakably loud and express yourself like a Spanish cow!
  • Shout-Out:
  • Show Within a Show: Rosalina's favorite show, "Comet Academy". To quote Rosalina on what it's about:
    Rosalina: 12 Lumas are sent on the Academy Comet, which is the host of the Comet Academy! During the 86 years it takes for the comet to come back, the Lumas are training by eating the most Star Bits they can, so once in competition, they can transform into the most formidable things!
  • The Bully: Princess Peach is portrayed as a toxic friend to Daisy.
  • The Mafia: A throwaway gag has some mafia member Piantas trying to cement a Koopa Troopa's feet. They fail because Peach's cake mix and their cement were swapped.
  • Time Dissonance: Rosalina has a warped view of time compared to others due to being immortal (or at least The Ageless). She casually mentions that her favorite show comes on once every 86 years and that she visits Earth once a century.
  • Totally Radical: Peach refers to Rosalina as "totally rad" once.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Peach adores peaches and cooks with them a lot. Daisy considers it just Peach boosting her own ego.
  • Wrench Wench:
    • Rosalina is presented as one of these. She has to take care of her own observatory after all.
    • Daisy is shown to be a decent mechanic.
