Toad Biography & Character Profile

Character fact sheet

Name: Toad

First Appearance: Super Mario Bros. (1985) at the end of levels

Home: The Mushroom Kingdom

Voiced by: Samantha Kelly (Also does Peach)

Associates: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach Toadstool, and The Toad Brigade.

General profile

Toad is Princess Peach’s attendant and a long time protector of the Mushroom Kingdom. Toad can be seen on many adventures helping the Mario Brothers. Toad looks like the rest of his species; he usually wears a blue vest, large brown shoes and a large piece of clothing for pants. In later games Toad's vest has yellow lining and has a red-spotted mushroom cap.


However in Super Mario Bros. 2 Toad was given a blue mushroom cap instead of a red one. However, Toad's blue mushroom cap was actually due to the graphical incapability of the NES rather than a continuity thread. In remakes of Super Mario Bros. 2, such as Super Mario All-Stars, Toad is wearing his signature red mushroom cap.

Toad can sometimes be seen as a coward, but is always happy to try and help Mario. Toad can also get upset and shows to be impatient. Overall though Toad’s good qualities is his loyalty to his friends and his happy excitable nature which encourages the rest of the group.

Toad is surprisingly stronger than Mario and Luigi and is able to run faster than the others. He is generally considered an expert on items, often giving Mario power-ups and telling him what he needs to do.

  • Birdo - Birdo and Toad immediately saw each other as enemies and fought each other in the game. Birdo later appears as one of Toad's major allies in Wario’s Woods.

  • Bowser - Toad, as a loyal servant to Peach has tried to protect her from Bowser, and therefore sees him as an enemy. But as mentioned earlier, he is kidnapped almost as frequently as she is.

  • King Koopa - an obvious enemy as he always kidnaps Princess Peach who Toad is a loyal servant too and would do anything to protect her.

  • Wario - another enemy of Toad’s, even though he has defeated him before he appears to fear Wario in Super Mario 64 DS.


  • Mario - Although not incredibly close friends, Toad and Mario share a mutual respect for one another and Toad admires Mario’s bravery.

  • Luigi – Toad and Luigi are on good terms with each other, however it is often shown that Toad looks down on Luigi and instead gives Mario more attention.

  • Princess Peach - Toad is Princess Peach's obedient servant, and he would do anything to protect her. Toad frequently asks the Mario brothers for help when Peach has been kidnapped.

  • Toadette - Toadette was introduced as Toad's partner, which has been continued throughout spin-off games. Their relationship is questionable as Mario party 6 indicates they are good friends where as Mario Kart wii refers to them as brother and sister.

  • Yoshi - Toad sees Yoshi as both a hero and as a friend


Since his debut appearance in Super Mario Bros, he once made many appearances in the mainstream Mario games, but has lately been reduced to being a playable character in the Mario spin-off titles, while Toadsworth has taken over many of his previous roles.
