Main article: Toad (move)
Peach using Toad in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

In the Super Smash Bros. games, Toad appears as Princess Peach's helper and standard special move. He can be pulled out of nowhere and used as a shield. One of Peach's trophies says not to worry about him, as it is his job to protect her. If Kirby inhales Princess Peach, then he too can use Toad. He also has a trophy in his likeness. Toad (except for Super Smash Bros. Melee) is able to release spores that damage the enemy after being used enough times as a shield. This is the second time Toad has ever displayed this ability throughout his existence (Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 was the first while the future game Mario Sports Mix further explored this ability). Toad is once again given a collectible trophy in the game and also has three obtainable stickers. While he is not a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Toad is technically playable in the unlockable Masterpiece Super Mario Bros. 2 if the player chooses to make the default playable Princess Peach lose all her lives in the game.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Toad can be altered into one of the two custom variants, if they are unlocked first. One is the Sleepy Toad, which can put opponents to sleep with his spores, while the other one is Grumpy Toad, which immediately releases spores upon use.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Toad appears in Peach's grab and throws to attack her opponent; Peach's pummel has Toad punch the opponent, and her forward and down throws involve Toad headbutting the opponent in different directions, while her up and back throws have Toad merely mimic Peach's actions. Additionally, Toad now appears on his own in front of Peach when her standard special move is used, while the latter hides herself. Toad also appears as an Advanced-class Grab-type primary spirit, which can be enhanced to Captain Toad at level 99. In his spirit battle, the player faces a Mii Brawler wearing a Super Mushroom hat and a Toad vest on the Princess Peach's Castle stage. Toad can also be seen in the artwork used for Cheep Charger's spirit. As Peach's Echo Fighter, Daisy has a blue Mushroom Retainer performing Toad's functions.

Aside from Peach's use of him as a moveset in Super Smash Bros. Melee, he also has a couple of cameos in the first level of Adventure Mode, where he is seen running around the level in a panic.

Toad was a requested character for inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Melee.[1]

Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix[edit]

In Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Toad accompanies the character of the player's choice, Mario or Luigi. He plays a sidekick-like role by helping either plumber on his quest to get the Music Keys from Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser. Toad makes his debut in the game by running to the hero's house to alert him of the news after witnessing the capturing of the Music Keys. Toad also appears in the background of the first song, "Here We Go!" where he is seen dancing alongside either Mario or Luigi. He tries to help obtain the lost keys but is not entirely successful as Toad is non-violent throughout the game. In the various dance scenes after the first one, Toad often makes various excuses of not being able to dance to excuse himself from dancing. He does, however, tell Mario or Luigi what he needs to do and when he needs to do it (as seen during the battle with Freezie).

Itadaki Street series[edit]

Itadaki Street DS[edit]

Toad, along with eleven other Mario characters and several characters from the Dragon Quest series, appears as a playable character in Itadaki Street DS. Toad also runs the tutorial mode of the game where he assists the player by explaining the basic controls.

The Toad Head and Toad Suit are collectible accessories in this game that can be equipped on customizable characters.

Fortune Street[edit]

Toad returns as a playable participant in the Nintendo Wii game Fortune Street, the sequel to the Japanese exclusive Itadaki Street DS. He is one of the thirteen playable Mario series characters in this installment. Within the game, Toad is classified as being in the C Rank (a trait he shares with Luigi, Princess Daisy, and Waluigi). Instead of making fun of the other players during his talking sequences, Toad will normally encourage the other players and ask if they are all having a good time (as his personality is shown to be rather kind and open throughout the game).

Mario & Sonic series[edit]

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games[edit]

Toad makes a small appearance in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games as one of the referees in the game from the Mario franchise. He can frequently be seen alongside Cream the Rabbit as judges in the various event matches including the fencing and high jump events. The two also are seen calling out fouls and starting the races in the Athletics events.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games[edit]

Toad also appears in the sequel, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games which features him once again as a referee. In the Wii version, he along with Cream are the main hosts that introduce the events to the players in the Festival Mode. The two also resume very similar judging roles as in the first game. However, in the DS version of the game, Toad appears in the story mode with a bigger role and is the first person for Mario and Sonic to meet in Frostown. He excitedly joins their party after been spoken to, acting mainly as a guide for the adventure (Toad states himself that he will not be able to do much once he agrees to join them). In both games, Toad is the only red-spotted Toad to appear within the games (despite the numerous amount of Toads present in the audience).

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games[edit]

Toad and Cream as the hosts of the London Party mode in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

Toad appears in both versions of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. In the Wii version, Toad appears alongside Cream as the hosts of the London Party mode, in which he gives out information to the players about various events, such as characters appearing on the map, scores and upcoming Events. He also appears as a referee in several other events in the game, most notably as the host of Dream Equestrian. A Mii outfit based on Toad can also be unlocked by playing against a friend 5 times in the Single Event mode, and Toad will occasionally send the player mail.

Toad also appears as a referee in several events alongside other Toads in the Nintendo 3DS version, as well as appearing on the results screens in medleys. A badge of Toad can also be randomly earned from the badge machine. In the story mode, Toad plays a relatively large role, as he accompanies Mario and Luigi for most of the story and often interprets for them. After initially being scared by the Phantasmal Fog, Toad helps Mario and Luigi clear it from the Main Stadium, before following them to Hyde Park, where they find that the Girls group, Toads and Rouge have already cleared the fog from the area. Mario, Luigi, and Toad reunite with Sonic and Tails at the British Museum, and the group clear the fog after defeating Eggman Nega. They explore the museum to learn about the source of the fog, before splitting up after some news from Charmy and Espio, and Toad and Mario later follow Wario challenging Dr. Eggman, who he later defeats after teaming up with Waluigi. Seeing this, Toad heads back to the Main Stadium with the others, which is shortly covered back by the Phantasmal Fog. After rescuing Cream, Toad and the Heroes travel to Stonehenge with Omega, where they find the seal for the Fog urn before heading back to London. The group head to Big Ben to confront Bowser and Dr. Eggman, though Toad and Omega eventually return to the Main Stadium due to no longer being able to endure the fog. Toad also leads the call over the walkie-talkie to the Heroes during their confrontation and also invites Bowser and Dr. Eggman to register for the Olympic Games after they are defeated. Toad appears at the opening ceremony, as well as in the photo at the end of the credits with the athletes and Omochao.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games[edit]

Toad makes his first playable appearance in the series in the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He is exclusive to the 4x100m Relay event. Toad does not appear as a playable character in the Nintendo 3DS version.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020[edit]

Toad also appears in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Minecraft[edit]

Toad appears as a playable skin as part of the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft.

Cameos[edit]

Kirby Super Star[edit]

In Kirby Super Star, Toad makes a cameo appearance alongside fellow Mario characters Mario, Luigi, and Birdo as part of the audience in both the boss fight against King Dedede in Spring Breeze and in the minigame Megaton Punch. In the Nintendo DS remake Kirby Super Star Ultra, more Mario characters, including a few more Toads, appear within the audience in both locations.

F-1 Race[edit]

Toad's cameo in F-1 Race

In F-1 Race for the Game Boy, Toad is one of several Nintendo characters who make a cameo appearance. Toad appears at the start of Course 2 where he and several referees greet and cheer on the player before the race begins. Toad is also the first guest character to congratulate the player in the ending sequence while using the same animations as his first appearance.

Game Boy Camera[edit]

Toad's stamp from the Game Boy Camera

Toad makes a notable cameo as a stamp for photos in the Game Boy Camera peripheral. The artwork of him depicted in this stamp is inspired by his artwork for Mario Party.
