Toad is Princess Peach's loyal attendant, and he has appeared in all of the Mario Kart games up to date. Similar to Toadette, Toad is a lightweight driver in every game and therefore quick of the mark. His karts usually have an extra kick to their drift, allowing him to swerve past sharp turns with ease. To unlock him in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, win the 100cc Special Cup. His special item (which he shares with Toadette) in that game is the Golden Mushroom (which was then known as the Super Mushroom). He appeared again in Mario Kart 7 as a starter character and returned in Mario Kart 8 as a starter character. He appears in all of the Mario Kart games.

Toad is the brother of Toadette (confirmed in the Mario Kart Wii guidebook only), and he is a good friend of Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, and Yoshi. Like the other heroes, Toad obviously despises Bowser.


Toad is a small little guy in the Mario series. He has a white mushroom with big red dots on it on top of his head. If you are wondering why, it's because he is from Mushroom Kingdom. Now do you understand? Despite having an appearance similar to many other Toads from the Mushroom Kingdom, he is often referred to as a close buddy of Mario's and is seen to being a loyal friend to those he's friends with. He has big brown shoes and a blue vest with gold trim. Toad wears a diaper, so that implies that he may still be a baby.. Also, he has a happy, memorable face.


Staff Ghost Tracks


  • Toad is voiced by Jen Taylor in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, who also voices Peach, Daisy, and Toadette. In Mario Kart Wii he is voiced by Samantha Kelly, who also voices Peach, Baby Peach, and Toadette. So this makes Toad the only male character to be voiced by the aforementioned voice actresses.
  • Toad is the only character, that is unlockable in one game (Mario Kart Double Dash) and a starter character in the other games in the Mario Kart series.
  • In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Toad, besides Yoshi, is the only racer to team up with another racer of different gender.
  • Additionally, Toad was the only character who had a partner made for him in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
