 Character Bio
Toad is a character introduced in Super Mario Bros. In every castle, other than the final one, Toad would deliver the famous line "The princess is in another castle". Toad received a playable role in Super Mario Bros. 2, as the slowest but strongest of the four playable characters. Toad has appeared in almost every Mario game to date.
In a way, he acts as Princess Peach's Personal Servant. They don't really do any major work, but you can see them as guards, and other various jobs throughout the castle, in Paper Mario, and the like. He also takes the role of the hero in "Wario's Woods" for the NES, and later for the SNES. Toads are stronger than they look and are quite capable of defending the princess, but she still gets kidnapped with disturbing regularity.
