    Princess Peach is THE DAMSEL of the video gaming world. But is she really in distress? Despite what you may have thought, Peach is actually one of the most powerful characters in the Mushroom Kingdom. Digging into Nintendo's lore and Japanese culture, GG explains why this lovable Princess is far from being a damsel in distress - rather she is an almighty Goddess!

    Has anyone ever considered this though? Bowser is probably one of the strongest characters out there and peach, even strong, is pretty puny to bowser. Granted she used that power to throw bowser away but he was defeated and unconscious. Peach can't even protect herself from him because he's so strong he can tank black holes and even the sun

    Iris from Megaman X might be based on Marie Antoinette. And Sonic is based on a little known mythical creature: the Arkan Sonney.

    My theory is that Peach has psionic capabilities more powerful than her own mind can handle. Bowser keeps capturing her becuase, like the Mario Bros., he's been trapped in the Mushroom Kingdom, and he needs to find a way to get back to the real world, which would require Peach's abilities. Rosalina, being the love child of Peach and Luigi, seems to not only have psionic capabilities, but also is able to control them better than peach could, which could only work if Luigi had ASD, which has been proven to be caused by an overabundance of synaptic connections, which, by the genetics of both minds, should result in someone who can control their psychic powers, like Rosalina.

    After this video introduced me to the concept of Mitama, I found that this Shinto concept may have influenced other games, and I wonder if you might do videos on any of those.

    For example, in Devil May Cry 3, Dante’s four styles are represented by different colors; red for sword master, blue for gun slinger, yellow for trickster, and green for royal guard. They seem to have some influence from the mitama concept, with sword master being used for getting up close and aggressive with melee attacks, gun slinger is attacking from a range to clear a path for easier progression, trickster using superhuman acrobatics to get to higher and harder to reach places to obtain items, and royal guard to repel enemy attacks. I thought of this video when I put it together, and I hoped this tidbit would interest you.
