|~ Princess Shroob|
Princess Shroob is the central antagonist of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. She is the younger sister of Elder Princess Shroob and a princess of the Shroob race. She is the one who leads the Shroob's attack on the Mushroom Kingdom.
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
It all started when the Planet Shroob was withering and dying, and in order to find a new place for their people, the two Princess Shroobs attacked Mushroom Kingdom in the past. When Princess Peach (who was traveling back in time) trapped Elder Princess Shroob inside the Cobalt Star and broke it into shards, Princess Shroob took over as leader of the Shroobs. She launched a missile to take down Baby Bowser's Koopa cruiser in an attempt to kill him, Peach, and the Mario Bros. (both past and present).
Princess Shroob was next seen hosting a celebration about conquering the kingdom, and fed Peach to Petey Piranha. When she discovered the Mario Bros, she sent Shrooboid Brat to defeat the Mario Bros, but they defeated him. Princess Shroob and her minions sent them falling into the caves below.
Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi eventually entered in the Shroob Castle (Peach's castle in the past, taken over by Shroobs) and fought Princess Shroob. They eventually defeated her, but before she is destroyed in a brilliant explosion just like previous enemies, she claims that they will stand no chance against her sister.
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
Princess Shroob makes a cameo in the game frozen in ice next to Elder Princess Shroob in the room with the optional boss battle against the three Shroobs. This is unlike the original Bowser's Inside Story, where only Elder Princess Shroob is seen.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Princess Shroob appears as a Neutral Primary Spirit. Her battle is a Stamina battle against Peach who grows to giant size and gains increased attack power once her health has dwindled halfway.
Princess Shroob is a very sadistic, cruel, ruthless and magisterial tyrant who likes to cause suffering to others. This is shown when she ordered her Shroobs to destroy the Koopa Cruiser, tried to feed Princess Peach to Petey Piranha without mercy, and was even possible for the destruction of the Mario and Luigi from the future. After the Shroob Mothership was destroyed, the princess emerged insane with revenge. Although she has an argumentative and tyrannical attitude towards her enemies, Princess Shroob appears to care more about her kind's future than her sister, the Elder Princess Shroob.
Powers and Abilities
Princess Shroob is able to make energy balls, increase her size, fly, teleport, and control Stars when she is battling against her enemies. It is also revealed that Princess Shroob is a Master of Disguise, as she tricked everyone into believing she was the real Princess Peach.
- In the American version of the game, after defeating Princess Shroob, the victory screen displays no experience or coins earned. In the Japanese and European versions, the battle instantly fades out after her defeat.
