Peach vs. Yoshi – GeekParty’s Super Smash Bros. Amiibo Tournament

Super Smash Bros Peach vs YoshiSmash Bros. is a game that can make even the oldest of friends into bitter enemies. In the next round of the tournament, Nintendo mainstays and long-time buds Peach and Yoshi will engage in non-mortal combat. (For the full description of the tournament rules, check out this link.)

Will Peach prove that she’s worthy of the Mushroom Kingdom throne? Or will Yoshi eat his way to victory? To find out, check out the videos below. You can find our commentary below that.

(Coincidentally, all three battles take place on spaceships.)

Round 1

Round 2

Round 3

In the first round, Peach starts off strong, employing a nice mix of offense and defense. However, after Yoshi gets a Final Smash, the tide of the battle turns. Peach can’t defend against Yoshi’s brutal onslaught, and the Omnivore of the Year is victorious.

Peach plays a little more aggressively in the second round, and it really pays off. She’s able to beat Yoshi handily, losing only one life in the process.

Most of the time, our third rounds are just for fun. This time, it’s a deciding match. Peach is lucky from the start, scoring both a Final Smash and the powerful Dragoon item. She also plays extremely well, deftly avoiding Yoshi’s most deadly attacks. In the end, she manages to defeat Yoshi without losing a single life, and is the amiibo moving on to the next round.

While we’re sad to see Yoshi go, Peach really earned her place in the next bracket. We can’t wait to see what she does when the next match rolls around.
