Mamma mia! We used to question what could possibly possess Mario to risk his life (and neglect his plumbing duties. Do you think those toilets in the Mushroom Kingdom are just going to unclog themselves?) time and time again for no more than a measly peck on the cheek as reward for his unrequited love.

Now that we’ve seen Princess Peach in her royal negligee, courtesy of cosplayer Liz Katz, though — we get it. Sweet baby Yoshi do we get it. (And now we understand why Bowser kidnaps her every other week too.)
