Why is Rosalina so big

Miyamoto wanted her to be bigger to differentiate her from the existing cast--not bigger as in "moderately tall", like inhumanly big, because he had a complex about them adding a new princess to the main stable when they already had two or something. He talked about it in Iwata Asks and other places, IIRC.

e: one quick quote from Iwata Asks http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/wiiu/super-mario-3d-world/0/3

Miyamoto When Super Mario Galaxy first came out, I was a little hung up on why Rosalina was showing up when Princess Peach was already there. I thought it was fine as long as it was only Super Mario Galaxy, and we made her design so she's a little bigger. But all of a sudden she was a regular character in Mario Kart as just a regular girl, even her size turned to normal.

Iwata As they say, time solves all things.

Miyamoto If I think about it now, I'm like, "What was I so hung up on?!" I guess I was still green. (laughs)

Forget about Rosalina, I also had no idea Peach was so tall. That chart says 6'01'' (185cm), that is considerably taller than me. I assumed all Mario characters were the size of children (except Bowser obviously)...

WOW. I had no idea she was that tall either.. Which means Daisy is also around there too. I think she’s a little shorter.

lol, 7'7" is tall now? Everyone I know is at least 8', drives two Porsches at once and has a dick so grotesquely large it makes a normal life impossible.

Besides, do we know she's not wearing heels? She might only be 7'3" or something pathetic.

We'll never measure up to her.

I can't believe an actual answer was produced.

This thread has me doing Google searches that an algorithm somewhere is probably going to make me regret at some point.

They get to be the little spoon. A new experience, if nothing else


Well we need both, don't we? Tall amazons like Rosalina and Samus and shorties like Edelgard and (some) Zeldas
All the more reason to get Edelgard into Smash, so we can have both Rosalina, a featherweight giantess, and Edelgard, a smol heavyweight swinging an axe larger than her.

A) Women can be tall too.

B) She's a fucking space goddess with the power to reincarnate the entire fucking universe who lives on a magical spaceship where she takes care of baby stars and planets. The fact that she's super tall is what you're questioning?

She gives birth to the whole universe and keeps it under her dress. The universe as Mario experiences it is a holographic projection from her dress.

Nah. I'm 6'5" being the little spoon just means you have to be the one being grabbed. Or spoon rosalina. She's a pretty big spoon if you know what I'm saying.
Finding a woman as tall as Rosalina is difficult. All the women I end up dating are in the low-mid 5 foot range. My suffering is eternal.
