Pink Gold Peach (ピンクゴールドピーチ) is an unlockable character in Mario Kart 8 and is playable from the start in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. She is the golden counterpart of Princess Peach, and like Metal Mario, she is a heavyweight racer. She is unlocked after beating a random Grand Prix.


Pink Gold Peach happens to look exactly like Princess Peach as far as shape goes. Her dress can be made out, along with her elegant gloves, skirt, and necklace. She also has the same hairstyle as Peach, with bangs and a ponytail. And her crown, too. The only trait that separates Pink Gold Peach from the original is she's composed completely of pink gold, obviously. It's in her name...

Pink Gold Peach also has a special biker suit when driving Bikes. She has the identical features of Princess Peach when she is also changed into her suit. She has racing boots and gloves, along with the suit, of course. Her hair and accessories are still present, but are also upgraded with a scarf. Like when she is in her dress, she has a pinkish gold appearance.

  • In Mario Sports Superstars, Pink Gold Peach is once again a playable character.
  • Pink Gold Peach also has a fairly poor reputation due to the Mariokart community wanting new, innovative characters and receiving a reskin of an old character in return.
    • Nathaniel "Scuttlebug" Bandy is a big person behind the hate of Pink Gold Peach. However, rumor has it that she is his most played character.
