Relationships Edit.
Her outfit was also somewhat closer to Peach and Daisy's. Instead of a crown, she wore a tiara, and her gloves were just like Peach's. A final concept drawing depicted Rosalina very similarly to the way in which she appears now, though it contained minor color differences. The Super Mario Galaxy development team considered making Rosalina a relative of Princess Peach's; while this was dropped from the final game, her overall character design still reflects this early idea.
She has an intimate knowledge of the universe and cares deeply for the Lumas and her friends, where she assumes the role of the total caregiver and mother figure for them. Her outward strength and inner sorrow are likely due to the loss of her own mother. Rosalina is a calm and reserved character, and often takes pauses when she explains how the universe works.

It has also been shown that Rosalina's voice is rather monotone, even when she is excited. Since Mario Kart Wii, however, Rosalina has been portrayed as a little bit more upbeat and joyous than her original portrayal, with examples being that Rosalina cheers and shouts louder, though still mostly keeping her introverted nature. Like most players, Rosalina enjoys special activities, but in a very humble manner. When Rosalina was young, she was portrayed as optimistic and proactive, where she helps a Luma build a spaceship to find the Luma's mother instead of doing nothing.
Even so, she gets homesick and misses her mother dearly, to the point where she cries about losing her mother, though her spirits get raised easily when the Lumas impress her with comets and that they offer to take her back to her home planet.
Powers and abilities Rosalina creates a protective bubble around herself to defend against attacks. Rosalina has special powers as seen in Super Mario Galaxy. For example, once sufficient power is restored to the Comet Observatory, Rosalina is able to use her powers to surround the observatory in a force field, transforming it into a starship as a form of transportation. Also, she can be protected by a force field that resembles a bubble. If the player attempts to jump on her, the bubble appears.
Rosalina can also form similar bubbles around Mario if he falls off the Comet Observatory; it then levitates and drops him back to where he was standing. Rosalina also has the ability to float, just like the Lumas, and at the end of Super Mario Galaxy is shown flying when she departs from the Gateway Galaxy 's first planet.
She has the ability to speak via telepathy, as shown in the end of the game, where she speaks to Mario, Peach and Bowser while she's far in space. Rosalina is shown to be skilled with her wand and can deflect Star Bits with it if the player shoots them at her. Rosalina has also shown the ability to teleport, at least from Earth to space.
She can also use the spin move from the Super Mario Galaxy games, as seen in Super Mario 3D Worldand can still create a shield to protect her if the player attempts to attack her as a non-playable character. She is also able to create giant hologram-like projections of herself, like in Super Mario Galaxy 2and even change her height, like in Super Mario Galaxy. She also shows more of her powers in the spin-offs games, such as telekinesis, creation of shooting star showers, gravity manipulation, teleportation of other people, and creation of Launch Stars.
Relationships Rosalina with the Lumas As apparent in the storybook, Rosalina cares very strongly for her mother. While Rosalina was a child, she had dreams where her mother was leaving her permanently. While looking back at her planet after the one hundredth comet passes, Rosalina suddenly realized her mother was dead and burst into tears. Additionally, the storybook reveals Rosalina has an unnamed brother in the seventh chapter, and gives some description about her unnamed, mustached father during the final chapter in the French version of Super Mario Galaxy.
Rosalina bonded with a Luma looking for its mother and soon became the adoptive mother of both it and a host of other Lumas, who in turn comforted her when she mourned the death of her own mother. A Luma named Polari is her most trusted adviser and is often found at her side in Super Mario Galaxy. She is also held in high esteem by Lubbawho refers to her as "The Lady of the Shooting Stars" and is happy to have her on board the Starship Mario at the end of Super Mario Galaxy 2.
She then flies her ship to the center of the universe and destroys a fleet of Bowser's airships, thereby helping Mario defeat him and rescue Princess Peach, whom Rosalina had described as Mario's "Special One". As revealed in volume 38 of Super Mario-KunPeach herself shares a positive friendship with Rosalina. Also in Super Mario-kun, Rosalina is shown to have a funnier and less mature side following most of the characters in the manga.
In volume 37 and 38, Rosalina is shown to ask Mario and Luigi a lot of favors. After they finish some tasks for her, she tells Mario that "he is a good butler. Luigi, Rosalina, and the Toad Brigade posing for a picture Luigi assists Mario in the collection of stars in Super Mario Galaxy, at one point giving him a recovered Power Star on the condition that he tells Rosalina that it was Luigi who obtained it for her.
The two are also depicted standing together with the Toad Brigade at Peach's Castle in a secret picture that can be obtained by collecting all Power Stars.
Merchandise Plushies based on Rosalina are manufactured by San-ei. The cloud costume is probably the most used costume in Super Mario Galaxy 2and for good reason: Not only can Mario jump on clouds and create platforms, but in the costume, he is lighter and can jump and remain in the air for longer.
Also, the cloud platforms respond to air currents, so Mario can in effect create his own moving platform which can both help or hinder the player. And, because Mario can replenish his platform supply by finding another cloud flower, there are levels where Mario must travel from flower to flower, and at least one boss where Mario, in order to defeat it, must jump from cloud to cloud high above the ground to avoid projectile and other obstacles.
Sure, this idea has been around since the days of Marble Madness, but the way its used here is ingenious. One level that features the rock costume is a series of tricked-out bowling lanes with terrified looking pins that Mario must knock over in order to get enough points for the star. Blasts from the Past Nintendo threw in some of the old costumes as well, including the bee costume and the fire flower costume. But again, this being SMG 2 and the developers being who they are, these costumes are used in wholly different ways, or at least, in different contexts.
For instance, instead of an ice level, there is a snow level in SMG 2, and the fire flower is the primary tool for Mario to use here.
It is used for one purpose only, to destroy gigantic snow statues of Bowser and Goombas. In other parts of the game, the fire flower is used to destroy a room full of boxes under a strict time limit, the same way bombs were used to destroy trash in SMG 1. Besides the items already mentioned, there are many references to the first game.
Rosalina, the woman who ran the space station in the first one, is back to help you out for levels that you may have gotten stuck on by basically playing the level for you. The rolling ball that is controlled by the controllers motion is back as well, although this time the levels are more forgiving and fun to play.
The levels involving the manta ray were hard to play and usually resulted in many deaths just by veering off course.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Walkthrough
In SMG 2, this is replaced by a bird that you can take control of which flies through a beautifully rendered forest and later around the surface of an enormous rocket ship. These levels are so much more fun that the torturous manta ray levels that this reviewer felt ashamed for ever thinking the idea of controlling Mario with simple motion to be blatant pandering toward the Wii controls.
No, the new motion control levels are a revelation and are fun to play instead of tedious. Prankster Comets Another thing that has returned is the challenge.
‘Super Mario Galaxy 2’ Review
Sure, every level at first seems easy and straight forward, but some of the hidden stars are downright nasty to obtain, and when you start getting comets in this game, comets are gained by finding secret comet coins in every level, much like New Super Mario Bros Wiiwhich were also in the first game, you begin to face levels that are close to impossible.
Comets in the first game had four varieties: Now, each comet is specific to that level.Super Mario Galaxy 100% Walkthrough - Part 32 - Final Boss & Alternate Ending (Luigi Unlocked)
So while speed is still there, and clones changed in this game so that they follow your path and hurt you if they catch up are as well, some comet levels are just wholly different entities, like a competition to score a certain amount of points by jumping on consecutive enemies, etc.
The level of challenge that these comets bring up this from a casual game to an insanely hardcore one that even the best Modern Warfare 2 veterans will have trouble with.
SMG 2 will prove a hard game to beat. Level Design Finally, level design should be discussed, as it is what is most important about this game. Super Mario Galaxy 2 heightens the playful relationship between Mario and gravity in many brilliant ways. One aspect of the physics SMG 2 uses that was only hinted at in the first is the idea of wrapping two dimensions around three.
To visualize this, imagine an ant on a flat surface.
The ant can only walk infinitely forward and back or infinitely left and right. So it is effectively in two dimensions. Now put that ant on a thick wire. In the other direction, it is bounded by the perimeter of the wire. However, Rosalina's skin is paler, her eyes are a lighter shade of blue, and her hair possibly "red" in her childhood is a lighter blond than Peach's. She wears purple nail polish, and has a large bang which obscures her right eye.
Clothing Edit Final concept art Rosalina wears a gown said to be a color that only exists when the sun peers out of the clouds.
Her brooch, crown, and earrings are star-shaped. The brooch and crown are silver, as are her high heels, while the earrings are yellow. Rosalina also wears a number of jewels, including a yellow jewel inside the brooch and crown jewels that are pink and turquoise. Her gown cuts off at the top of her chest, where a powder-blue flap loops around, and has long sleeves with wide openings at the bottom, which are topped with powder-blue frills.
At the bottom is another frill that loops around until turning up to a point at the middle; under this a layer of an undergown is visible. In Super Mario Galaxy, Rosalina holds a silver wand with a golden star at the top. Development Edit Early concept art of Rosalina, as seen in the Prima Games Collector's Edition Strategy Guide for Super Mario Galaxy Although Rosalina's design has not been changed since her debut, when she was originally being created for Super Mario Galaxy, her concept design was vastly different compared to what she looks like now.
She was depicted with a beehive hairstyle along with straight-cut bangs. She had more unique facial features including the style of her eyes and mouth; the facial features she has now are more similar to Peach's.
