Looks like this thread has been getting some decent amount of activity on it. That seems good. I've been pretty busy lately with my new job making that money and whatnot. But I can still fit in some time for my Rosie homies out there. Hope everyone's been getting the proper amount of Rosalina because Rosalina is good for your health. She looks good in the Star Rush cover art, but it would still be nice to have her closer to the front more.

More money means more Rosalina. ;)

I might as well not get it.

You cannot even play as her from the start , you need to choose Toad , and i don't like Toad.

This game makes Mario Tennis Ultra Smash look good and that's not a good thing.

I don't really post on Smashboards anymore but I think I will stop by this thread on occasion.

The Mario Party box art looks nice and I love how big Rosalina is, though she looks a bit odd in the face. I seem to hold the unpopular opinion that the game actually looks like a lot of fun, being more like a Mario RTS than a traditional Mario Party, at least as far as Toad Scramble is concerned. I'm totally down with that. I might pick it up.

I do need to vent though.

I've become really bothered with Rosalina's portrayal in the Rio Olympics on Wii U.

Her model may be sexy and all that, but they make her sound as weak and delicate as rice paper in this game. Their excuse for her not being able to compete in other events besides gymnastics is that they're "too difficult for her".



I know it's just an arbitrary way of justifying why she isn't in other events, just like how her stats are non-sensical due to the fact they really don't matter for her in this game. But they could have handled it much better. You could also interpret this as her just being modest, but even that doesn't work. Rosalina is supposed to be confident yet modest - she's able to do amazing things and she knows it, and won't back down from a challenge, but will not get in your face if you lose and will commend your efforts regardless of the outcome. She's not even being modest here, she's flat out too nervous to participate in the first place. Seems really off to me, especially considering stuff like this:



If they really needed an explanation for why each character isn't playable in every event, Rosalina's should have been "I'd love to try my hand at more events, but I'm far too busy right now. As fun as the Olympics are, I've got Lumas to feed and galaxies to protect! I'll warp down here whenever I get a free moment, though, and cheer everyone on from the spectator's stand!".

Something like that would have been much more in character and wouldn't require arbitrarily making her a wimp. I just really don't like handling her character like this, it's literally the stereotype less informed Mario fans make about her, where she's this weakling, anorexic shy girl who can't even take on a Goomba, let alone Bowser (just because of how she arbitrarily sits on the sidelines in Galaxy), and needs Peach and Daisy to escort her around everywhere like a little kid (despite the fact she's a literal mother herself).

I mean she is clearly more physically built than Peach and Daisy and most other characters in the game. And in Ultra Smash, she's a Power Class who can break real life serving speed records.

Yet SEGA sincerely expects me to accept that even Table Tennis would be "too difficult" for her?

SEGA is normally pretty good with actually making Mario characters pretty interesting in these games and staying true to their characters while expanding upon them. But with Rosalina, they did the opposite. They just took a misinformed fandom stereotype and rolled with that.

This is why Rosalina really needs her own game, if not to be segregated from the Mario franchise altogether. Her bios consistently paint her as an OP goddess in both magic and physical strength. But her in-game portrayals don't always match up with this, because they're afraid of her actually looking more powerful than other characters, or they want to glorify another character (Bowser in MP10, for example).

Outside of fan-art, I've been less interested in Rosalina as of late. Granted, that is partly because I've had other things going on, and there hasn't been a super compelling game featuring her recently, but I just want both a solid and fleshed out portrayal for her, for once to really ignite that spark in me again.

I'll still buy three of her amiibo, though...

The irony of that statement is that you can't really compete with Mario Party Advance (a Game Boy Advance title) for the worst Mario Party title.

Weird. You'd be the first one to say it's just an irrelevant Mario & Sonic game, which it totally is. I mean, we shouldn't expect a lot of a game where Rosalina is stuck with Gymnastics anyway (plus, I prefer Winter Games...)

And I think that's the con of not being Mario there. They don't want her to outpower him, even if she did in her first appearance and still does.

This excuse of being too weak is stupid, and except memoryman (because of his jealousy I guess), I don't expect anyone to trust this. She did destroy Bowser's army in her first appearance, is top tier in Smash, is OP in 3D World and has been a Power type in three games. Bios also often references her strength, and she did survive centuries alone with the burden of the loss of her whole family and protecting a whole universe.

Not to mention her amiibo bio flat out says she's basically capable of defeating anyone who might threaten the universe, no matter what. Implying her powers are literally unlimited.

And you often wonder why Rosalina tends to use the Monster tires in the Mario Kart series. I can understand it if she's using the Standard ATV, but not for the Standard Kart or Standard Bike. Interestingly, Waluigi sometimes uses the Slim tires for his Standard Bike.

I agree with the Rosalina's portrayal quote you gave her. Not only does it make much more sense and reasonable, but it provides her character's traits. It's contrasting the 3DS's version of the game, tho I can't tell which has more dialogue from Rosalina since I don't pay attention to the game as much. While how she portrays in the game seems inaccurate to the person she really is, it makes her more human. I mean, she'd have to admit flaws at certain point, but the "too weak" reasoning is not right for her, so "busy with the Lumas" makes much more sense. It's more fair to say that she's soft and modest inside due to being a mother and all, but brute strong with her powers and strength. Well, we have that and Rosalina being shorter than Big in the game as well as a few other characters.

Recently Mario Party Island Tour was featured in some event for German players , and the Minigames so far don't look that good .

Thats seriously a shame.
Considering that I played Mario Party Island Tour myself, I'll say that you're correct. There are just minigames that just don't even give much of a challenge, but Star Rush is a surprise. I hear the boss battles can have more than just 4 players.

So I ran across this artwork on Deviant Art, and it looks very kawaii!


Can be found on here.
http://www.deviantart.com/art/Rosalina-Rosalina-Main-629384950

---------------------------------------------

I also roamed the sea of youtube videos, and I happened to search Rosalina and found this video. Not sure if it was posted before or not, but here's the fanmade video.


I think that Rosalina needs to have more racing tracks of her own. That would be unique. I'm hoping she'll get more in the Mario Kart title. So far, we have Rosalina's Ice World. This idea of getting new Rosalina places should go the same for other games, or just in general for the Mario franchise. As far as the places Rosalina claims as her own, such as the Comet Observatory, the Gateway Planet, her Ice World, and the starry skies that surround her. We have her home planet as a stage in Smash and Ice World in Mario Kart 7, as well as her Comet Observatory in many games. Rosalina has alot of places, and it's not always contained in one planet but in other places in space. Given that she serves the most serious duty of them all, the places she owns so far happens to resemble the Galaxy games in a way and I think we need more of that. In her storybook and the Terrace's wallpaper, Rosalina's home planet appears flat while in the gateway planet, in Smash and Galaxy, is more spherical shaped. I don't know if it's just me being greedy but I know that some people feels the same way.

I've been interested in land ownership lately with the Mario franchise, and so I get very observant of Rosalina's domains. Especially her Observatory. Bowser has so many places that he owns, not only a castle but places scattered among the cosmos as seen in Super Mario Galaxy. Rosalina's home just seem a bit small in certain views, yet spacious in another condition. I really wish for, in Super Mario Galaxy 3, to be as massive as Breath of the Wild. I'm even looking at her board in Mario Party 10. Here's pictures of places Rosalina owns so far.



^I know Rosalina doesn't own this, and that this is in a different universe but it looks pretty anyways.

Even fans can make up places for Rosalina to own, such as "Rosalina's Starlight Coaster". Since Rosalina is known for her divinity and powers, role and etc, she deserves heavenly locations. As we know Rosalina isn't monarchy, regal or royalty, she's a goddess and where she drells is spacious so some people want more of that. I know most of you do. There could literally be any place made that could work for Rosalina, such as (These are my ideas.) Rosalina's Cosmic Castle, Rosalina's Secret Celestial Sea/Ocean or just Rosalina's Water World, Rosalina's jewerly storage room, Rosalina's Interstellar Mansion or an even an entire universe called "Rosalina's Universe". There are many places that can acts as a sanctuaries for Lumas, but we don't get to actually see one beside the Comet Observatory. A daycare could work, though I'm thinking Lubba would be the one who watches over the Lumas at daycare on Starship Mario while mama is at work, such as participating in events in the Olympics and some Mario activities, or in canonical measures, protecting galaxies and dealing with those threatening the universe. There's just so many Lumas so I figured that at one point someone else had to take care of them. Just like Mario/Luigi took care of Young Master Luma and Lubba leading the Lumas on Starship Mario.

It's also interesting to discuss about Rosalina's wardrobe but I figured talking about that and locations simultaneously would be a bit hard to comprehend, so it's best to keep one simple topic, and that is Rosalina's places or her land possessions. I don't think speaking of places would define her, like an idea I had of Rosalina having a castle wouldn't mean she's a princess. Probably by the time Rosalina is fully exposed to what she owns, all her powers and everything she has, even her backstory and family members, then she'd probably lose the "mysterious" trait, but we'll talk about that in the future if it does happen. In my headcanons, I do believe that Rosalina owns these places but they are far away in space so no one would know she owned them or not. It's like playing Super Mario Galaxy and meeting Rosalina for the first time, and starting to know more and more about her later to find yourself not expecting her having a Frozen Glacier. Not only are the places have a purpose of warping to or flying to with the Comet Observatory or on her own, but they also add to her characters as well. While these places may be a bit to much for some people to handle, it certainly isn't for me because knowing Rosalina being the mother of star children who can transform into planets and galaxies, it can happen forever and probably will. These places can appear in any form; race tracks, hub worlds, character aesthetic, or just decors.

Well, these headcanons and ideas of architecture is clashing together making a mess, but the main idea is that Rosalina could use more places. Plus, I think that this could be an interesting topic to talk about since I'm not entirely sure if anyone talked about geography in the previous thread, since it's so massive like an entire galaxy itself.

I like to think the Rainbow Road in MKWii is also a Rosalina track.

It specifically have Mario Galaxy references and Rosalina is the staff ghost.
I don't understand how she isn't the staff ghost for the tract in MK8. She was first revealed on the Rainbow Road and was often shown on it.

You could probably ask that same question for N64 Rainbow Road, as it contains Super Mario Galaxy references, such as the Grand Star.

Not in MK8 .

She was revealed in Cloudtop Cruise in that game , in which Baby Rosalina is the staff Ghost.

Rosalina is the staff ghost in Sunshine Airport , most likely because is the only track (IIRC) that has Galaxy references , Galaxy Airlines.

Yeaaah... Cloudtop Cruise has a remix from the Galaxy series and Sunshine Airpot has just this Galaxy Airlines thing. It's nothing compared to a track happpening in space, or a track where stars is the main symbol and literally sparkles. This doesn't make any sense, but well. It's not really important.

Looks like this thread has been getting some decent amount of activity on it. That seems good. I've been pretty busy lately with my new job making that money and whatnot. But I can still fit in some time for my Rosie homies out there. Hope everyone's been getting the proper amount of Rosalina because Rosalina is good for your health. She looks good in the Star Rush cover art, but it would still be nice to have her closer to the front more.
Has been a while for me to go back to this thread. I have been busying playing Overwatch and dealing with other stuff.

How the **** do you beat Mario using Rosalina?

I swear to God it's impossible.

Every single goddamn Mario I find beats me. My best friend mains Mario and I have no trouble beating him when I use Mewtwo, Yoshi, Charizard, hell, even Jigglypuff, but not freaking Rosalina. I don't even know what to do. All I try is to avoid him so he can't use that stupid Back Throw of his to 1-hit KO Luma, but then he uses all those idiotic tricks of him, namely his absurd dash attack and his broken as hell Up Smash.

I pray to God that we get at least one final patch where Mario gets nerfed HARD, because he deserves it. I'm so mad and salty right now I want to punch someone.

You really shouldn't be having that much trouble with him. The Mario MU is in Rosalina's favour. I also play Mario myself (my third main), and yeah I don't feel he should be an amazing amount of trouble for Rosalina.

While he does have a fair few tricks like the back throw for KO-ing Luma, at the end of the day, his range on his physical attacks isn't great outside of B-air. You should be having no problems outspacing him, it's actually quite tough for Mario to get past Rosalina's wall. Mario is good when he gets past her wall and then you wanna watch out for stuff like back throw, but really, if you have a good understanding of how to play Rosalina in general, Mario shouldn't be getting past the wall too often.

If you're being beaten by Mario, it's not because he's broken or even because you have a bad MU against him (Mario doesn't really get completely "shut down" by anyone, but he doesn't exactly shut anyone else down either), you just got outplayed. Mario is the most "raw" Smash character. He doesn't have any gimmicks or super fancy tricks, just well-rounded stats and a fairly versatile moveset.

Also you can't complain about his Up Smash being broken when Rosalina's is the same thing but better.

Hi guys, it's been a long time since last time I posted, I'm lurking so hard here, sorry.
I don't know where to post this message so I'm dropping it here, I will repost it elsewhere if necessary: does anyone have a capture card or knows someone who has one? I really want to put a clip in a RosaLuma montage I'm making but the match is too long to upload on Youtube and I don't know anybody with a capture card... It would be really appreciated, thanks :)

I have a capture card, but I can't record 1080p 60FPS (I have a capture card capable of doing that but it doesn't work on my laptop).

I can record 720p 60FPS or 1080p 30FPS though. If you're using replays uploaded from the game directly too, those are 720p 30FPS.

Well... So much for having the discussion of Rosalina's race tracks, homes 'n domes last. I hope more Rosalina can come out in the future, like new excitements involving her so we can have something to talk about. Like in the previous thread where Rosalina was announced for Smash, I miss those days.

I've been meaning to ask, how come is your avatar, mains and other info not on your user box anymore? I mean, you seem to be popular around here on Smashboards and people are asking if you're alright and stuff like that. I can see why since you said:

I don't really post on Smashboards anymore but I think I will stop by this thread on occasion.
To be fair, some people go on forums long enough and get tired so they eventually post stuff lesser and lesser so that's understandable. At least we get to look forwards to the memories and cherish them.

I used to have a capture card. It was pretty garbage for about $80 and I couldn't afford anything better like an Elgato or Hauppauge at the time. It only had composite and S video anyway. I'm not sure if there are any decent ones that are semi-affordable and could possibly even work with my setup where I have various consoles with HDMI and composite (i.e. retro and modern).

Im just patiently waiting for Rosalina to appear in a game that matters.

Ultra Smash , Star Rush , MP10 and Rio Olympics ... not worthy of Rosalina to appear , not only that , what i see and hear is cringy to me , so why even bother.

I hope the next game is totally different from those , i'm just sad Rosalina has been doomed with the fact that her debuts in regular series are in argueably the worst in each , with the exception of past games like Smash and Mario Golf.

2014 was the last good year for games to me that included her.

SMG3 When? ugh.

Could this be the beginning of a great era..? It must truly be...

Ultra Smash and Rio Olympics aren't bad since Rosalina get new outfits and etc. But the portrayals aren't really the best.

3D World isn't that bad, since Rosalina does well in that game. Rosalina is a very, very popular character in Nintendo, so her not being in a game would be a problem. The only thing they'd need to work on for Rosalina is the contents she's placed in and her portrayals, but that failed in the Rio Olympics.

Hopefully for the NX, Super Mario Galaxy 3 will come. Remember, there's still hope.



I sometime like to imagine Rosalina sing "Tomorrow" from Annie, to her Lumas when they are in a state of sorrow. To represent hope in a way.
Found this on Miiverse: https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYQHAAABAACaU2ySjeHcKQ

i honestly dont give a **** about so called ''portrayal'' for Rosalina , because those games are party games.

As long as Rosalina doesn't portray herself through her sounds as generic and the game is actually good , then its perfect for me, thats all i ask for , its extremely simple.

A good game where you can play as Rosalina where you get the vibe of a serious and womanly character , kinda like in MKWii,

Is that so hard to do?

At least just give me a good game , i hate to have to go to Mario Party 10 just to play as Rosalina in a MP game , i feel so bad because the game is really not fun at all , thats kinda the same case with the rest of the recent games.

Im still waiting for Nintendo to give me a game that includes Rosalina to be 100% positive about.

Frankly, I feel that Rosalina can look rather weird with a realistic appearance, but I guess that's because the nose ends up having more details for such drawings.

Maybe I just have a thing for tiny nose depictions, such as with the following drawing.


On a different note, a new Miiverse drawing that I came across.

I just don't really want to post on Smashboards anymore, for multiple reasons, and I basically purged my account as much as I could to convey that I don't visit here anymore.

This thread is the lone exception as well as other threads in the Rosalina boards if I have something to say, because I need a place to rant about when Nintendo messes up with Rosalina and I don't really have anywhere else for that. And also to gush when they actually do her right. :p

So I found a post of yours on Tumblr yesterday and wondered that is also reasons why. I'm aware that this was posted August 16, so it's recent.

Sorry to hear that, to be fair, not everyone's like that on the forum. There are nice people, yet at the same time there are rude people. TBH, I think you're a nice guy and well it's a shame to hear that you don't post in forums anymore, but still I know you technically do in the Rosalina boards but just not as much before I came here. I just hope things are going alright for ya.

And in other words, god have you created such a beautiful thing! I've been dealing with some people who keeps saying Rosalina is legit not a goddess in the Mario universe and keeps thinking they have the "right facts" and I don't. But this sums up pretty much everything.


“The most evil thing Bowser did was almost committing genocide on Rosalina & the Lumas by stealing their Powers Stars and leaving them stranded, most likely to meet their DEMISE”.

I actually listened to this in a YouTube video.

The Mario fandom are the worst at story interpretation, lol. They make everything out to be way more grimdark than it is.

Especially when it comes to Bowser. He’s supposed to be a lovable goofball who’s also a loving father and has a genuine crush on a pink princess, with a bit too much power that he sometimes goes a little mental with because he’s sick of losing to his arch nemesis. He’s not supposed to be Ganondorf #2. Hell, people make him out to be more cruel than Ganondorf.

Plus, Rosalina is literally the Mario universe’s equivalent to god, and official bios state her as being anywhere from “tough and powerful” to being capable of and actively protecting the entire cosmos “against any and all threats”.

All he did in Galaxy was steal the Power Stars (absorbing them from a DISTANCE, implying he considers Rosalina too powerful to go toe to toe with - keep in mind this guy raids an entire kingdom on a daily basis, yet when it came to Rosalina’s humble abode, he had to resort to a sneaky stealing operation, which is totally against his bombastic, over-the-top style), and run off with them. While the Lumas would indeed eventually die if they just sat there (Polari actually directly implies this), that’s exactly why they didn’t. They ACTUALLY went off to find that first Grand Star themselves! That’s why they’re all over the first level in Galaxy, constantly guiding Mario, because they already found out the location of the Grand Star and how to get in to get it. Not to mention that, between Galaxy 2 (Co-Star Luma) and Smash Bros, we know Lumas are perfectly capable of fighting Bowser’s minions on their own.

As for Rosalina, she’s literally shown within the first few seconds of her appearance to be capable of both flight and teleportation (over extremely long distances - she teleports back to the Observatory, which is far enough away to not even be visible in the background of that first level). That basically means, in the universe of a PLATFORMING ADVENTURE game, she’s completely OP. She’s literally playing with Action Replay hacks. Not to mention she is in 3D World as a playable character, where she is essentially a more versatile version of how Mario played in Galaxy. She even jumps higher than and moves faster than Mario in Smash Bros! That’s not even getting into the whole host of other abilities she has. Going by in-universe material, there was nothing stopping her from giving Bowser a good talking to even BEFORE he could finish stealing her Power Stars, let alone her being capable of going on the hunt herself after the fact. There is literally no explanation or logical in-game reason to why she didn’t. The only reason she doesn’t, is a meta one - we wouldn’t have a Mario game if she did. It had nothing to do with her lacking the capability for it.

It’s been a while since I’ve ranted on the misguided interpretations of Rosalina’s character/ability among both Mario fans and non-fans alike. I don’t really post on forums anymore and I’ve honestly become so jaded about stuff like this that I have stopped bothering trying to spread more correct information. But I was bored tonight, so there ya go.

TL;DR stop making out Bowser to be this cruel, Ganondorf wannabe, and don’t sleep on Rosalina & the Lumas (I mean it can’t be a coincidence she’s a top tier in Smash :p).

This deserve an applause. And oddly, the person that has the misconceptions on Rosalina happens to also be in the Sonic fanbase as you do, but you're like the opposite having the correct and genuine facts.

I'd rather you not go through my tumblr and post my personal stuff here, but it was actually events on another forum that caused me to make that post, not Smashboards. But yes, that is the general vibe I get from most online communities these days and it's part of why I don't really participate anymore.

Okay, so first I'm sorry for posting your posts here. I didn't know if it was personal, since anyone can see them. I won't make the same mistake again, please forgive me. As for the post in the spoiler, it was just so amazing but yet sad not many people get it.

Wasn't it revealed that Rosalina can fly faster than Kirby's Warp Star in her Smash trailer? Some people could say it was the Launch Star that gave her the boost, but it's shown she can literally make one herself and go as fast. She could also go faster without having to use the Launch Star, in all ways. Gravitational forces, Comet Observatory and etc.

EDIT: So how is everyone else doing? Are you guys excited for this upcoming fall, and where school begins or work?

ANOTHER EDIT CAUSE I FEEL LIKE I'M THE ONLY ONE ACTIVE:

Check out this cute artwork! I ran across this recently, chibi Rosalina are always the cutest. Twice as cute with the chibi Lumas. Oh yeah, and this girl named Ika wears something Shulk would wear.

Unfortunately it is what Shulk would wear.
I thought that is "Rule 64" Shulk… (Uh…hope that quote isn't inappropriate…)
