Pauline is Mario's very attractive and unbearably beautiful friend (and ex-girlfriend) and the damsel-in-distress kidnapped by the original Donkey Kong in the 1981 game of the same name. She reappeared in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! and most recently Super Mario Odyssey. It's seems Pauline still has feelings for Mario (that she continues to keep to herself and never acting on them) as she calls him her hero. When Mario possesses a Goomba (it's also wearing Mario's hat) and interacts with another Goomba wearing Pauline's hat they are clearly attracted to each other. Pauline at a point in the game wears Mario's hat and during her dancing does a move resembling Mario's Jump.
