Pauline (also known as Lady and Louise in early games) was Mario's original love interest and assist trophy for SSB4.
Now ex-girlfriend. She is the damsel-in-distress in the arcade game Donkey Kong who was captured by the original Donkey Kong . She is one of the few damsels in the Mario series who is not a princess, but simply a normal citizen. She will be captured by the 8-bit Donkey Kong (now called Cranky Kong who is the current Donkey Kong's grandfather) when they appear and she will throw her items such as her hat, umbrella, and purse. In more recent games she gets kidnapped by the current Donkey Kong because he has a childish crush on her.
