Hearing that they needed help, Daisy offered her aid, but when Amy heard that she planned to go shopping, she wanted to come along with Daisy. Daisy invited her to come along, but Peach and Blaze insisted that she stayed and helped them distribute the invitations. To settle this, Daisy and Peach made a deal: if Daisy could defeat Peach in an event, she could go shopping with Amy, but if Peach won, Daisy had to stay and help with the invitations. Daisy and Amy thus teamed up against Peach and Blaze. After Peach's duo won, she agreed to let them all take a break in Hyde Park first. When they returned however, the invitations had been blown away by the wind. Daisy and her group tried to regather the invitations, but discovered that Dr. Eggman and Bowser's invitations had been ruined after falling into the nearby lake. Peach and Amy thus decided to rewrite their invitations. Later on, after mailing the invitations, Daisy and Blaze arrived in Hyde Park, where they saw Eggman and Bowser walk away with letters. The duo soon after met Amy, Peach, and some Toads, who had been trying to deliver Eggman and Bowser's invitations to the two villains, only for the Toads to have lost the invitations. After Blaze deduced that Eggman and Bowser had already found and left with their invitations, Daisy had her group head out to go shopping with her to celebrate a job well done.
Later on, a dense pink fog would cover Hyde Park. There, Daisy found Amy in the fog. Both were later attacked by Fog Imposters of Peach and Blaze. Although Daisy and Amy managed to beat them, more began to appear. Daisy and Amy tried to run away from them, but eventually passed out. They were later found by Peach and Blaze, who awoke them and calmed them down, before reassuring them that they were the real ones. Daisy and Amy then decided to accompany Peach, Blaze, and the Toads after they spotted Rouge. Upon confronting Rouge, she threatened to imprison the girls in the fog and have the Fog Imposters take their place. After Rouge was defeated by Peach in an event though, the former admitted that she had no recollection of what she had been doing. Rouge then led everyone to a Fog Machine which Blaze destroyed. As the fog cleared, Daisy and her friends found out that Eggman had been using the fog to control Rouge's mind. Later, Mario, Luigi, and Toad arrived and found out from Rouge that Eggman had brainwashed her at the British Museum. As the heroes went to the museum, Daisy and her friends stayed with Rouge in Hyde Park. When a denser version of the fog later covered Hyde Park, Daisy cleared the park of it with the aid of Blaze, Peach, Amy, the Toads, and Rouge, which they reported back to Sonic and Mario about in an effort to support them as they faced the masterminds behind the fog: Eggman and Bowser.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Daisy made her first appearance as a playable fighter in the Super Smash Bros. series. In this game, Daisy must be unlocked by completing any one of following objectives:
- Play VS. matches, with Daisy being the 28th character to be unlocked. Daisy must then be defeated on .
- Clear Classic Mode with Fox or anyone in his unlock tree, being the fifth character unlocked after Falco. Daisy must then be defeated on Figure-8 Circuit.
- Have Daisy join the player's party in World of Light.
In gameplay, Daisy is Peach's "Echo Fighter", meaning Daisy's moveset, animations, and general properties are mostly derived from Peach's. Out on the battlefield, she is a fairly light-weighted character and her gameplay mechanics are hardly any different from Peach's, although she has a number of aesthetic differences, some of which includes standing and running animations and floral effects instead of Peach's heart effects. She also has Peach's Floating Jump and utilization of Toads for a couple of her moves. Like Peach, she can also pull vegetables out of the ground when performing her special down move, which can turn out to be a Bob-omb or a in rare cases, or just a vegetable that can inflict different amounts of damage depending on the face on it. On her own, Daisy has below-average horizontal mobility, poor jumping height, and floaty mechanics, but she also has a second-best air acceleration in this title. She also has a great aerial game thanks to her floating ability, which also makes it difficult to punish her under normal circumstances and allows her to attack foes' shields without much fear of reprisal. Her floating ability also increases her mobility movement options, and aids her with her off-stage presence. Her neutral aerial is also quite fast and deals great damage, and her back aerial is both a fast startup and follow-up attack despite its ending lag. In comparison to her aerial attacks however, Daisy's ground attacks are less effective, being fast but lacking in power. Her dash attack is also relatively fast and decently disjointed, her grab moves are decent, and her smash attacks are potent in their own right and with reasonable range. Despite these options though, Daisy has a number of her own weaknesses; she can be overwhelmed when executing some of her attacks, her floating ability make it hard for her to land and vulnerable to aerial attacks, she lacks agility to approach fighters, and her recovery, while very good, leaves her vulnerable. Additionally, her vegetables, being item projectiles, can be picked up by opponents and used against her.
In the Adventure Mode of the game, "World of Light", Daisy was one of the many fighters (aside from Kirby, who had managed to escape) who got captured byso that he could clone them and create puppet fighters for evil spirits to control. Daisy was later one of the many fighters that fell under 's control upon Galeem's first defeat. During the Adventure Mode, several puppet fighters of Daisy are used for spirit battles. An evil version of Daisy can be fought and defeated so that the true Daisy can be awoken and join the fight to defeat Galeem and Dharkon.
