During the events of Paper Mario: The Rewind Chronicles, Peach has her own story parallel to Mario's. While Mario is busy in the Astral Kingdom, Baron Valdric uses this to his advantage to try and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom for himself. Peach must defend her kingdom on the home front by taking down each of Valdric's forts scattered around the kingdom and recovering the Mushroom Kingdom Royal Jewels which Valdric is trying to steal in order to take the crown.

In terms of gameplay, Peach functions very similarly to Mario in the way she plays, from traversing an open overworld to having partners to help her in battle. However, Peach does not have a hammer like Mario and thus cannot break blocks on her own. Instead, she has her parasol which can be used to glide over wide gaps. In battle, the hammer option is replaced with the Parasol option, which acts like the hammer. It deals less damage, but pierces defense.
Peach's intermissions feature Bowser who is deciding on whether to help Peach for now and save his own kingdom, or ally himself with Valdric.
An enigmatic shy guy who is well versed with the history of the Mushroom Kingdom. Born between a family of great magicians and a family with a heritage of protecting the crown, he joins Peach on her quest as the guide to getting the Royal Mushroom Jewels. While an intellectual, he is quite a flirt and enjoys sweeping señoritas that Peach & co. meet along the way off their feet with a tango.
Being well-versed in all the Mushroom Kingdom, he is well-versed in knowledge about fighting different enemies and uses this knowledge in his own version of the tattle ability.
