Toadette, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix

Toadette is a recurring Toad character in the Mario series. Originally introduced as a playable racing partner for Toad in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, she has since appeared in other games as a playable character and has played supporting roles in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, and Mario Party DS. While she has very similar traits to other characters, she is easily the most commonly reoccurring female Toad in the Mario series. Toadette has been shown to be on good terms with such characters as Peach, Toad, Toadsworth, and Mario.


Mario Kart series

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Toad and Toadette racing (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!).

Toadette first appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Toad's racing partner and an unlockable character. Both Toad and Toadette can be unlocked by winning the Special Cup in 100cc. Additionally, she has her own personal kart, the Toadette Kart. It can only be unlocked by completing the Mushroom Cup in Mirror Mode. Both characters are lightweights, and their special item is the Golden Mushroom.

Mario Kart Arcade GP 2

While Toadette herself does not make an appearance as a playable racer in the arcade exclusive Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, she receives a notable cameo in the race course Yoshi Park 2 where large paper cut out structures of Toadette as well as Toad and Toadsworth (done in the artwork style of the Yoshi games) can be seen within the Trick House section of the course.

Mario Kart Wii

Toadette returns to the Mario Kart series as an unlockable character in Mario Kart Wii. Toadette becomes playable once the driver has raced all thirty-two courses in Time Trials. It is stated in the guide for Mario Kart Wii that Toadette was excited after getting permission from Peach to race and even stated that she is Toad's sister, though this is unconfirmed. Toadette is a small-sized racer, and she is able to use all the small-sized karts and bikes, each one being recolored white and magenta to match her personal style. Toadette is the only lightweight to have an off-road bonus. She also has a minor speed bonus, which is rivaled by that of Rosalina and Baby Peach.

Mario Kart 8

Toadette reappears as a playable character in the game Mario Kart 8, after five years of absence in games (not appearing since Mario Super Sluggers). She is an unlockable playable character in the game. She can be unlocked by scoring 1st Place in a random Cup.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Toadette appears whenever Mario discovers a Hammer or a new pair of Boots. Toadette hosts a tutorial session with Mario and explains how to use the new ability, and whenever Mario uses a new item on the first try correctly, she blushes. During her last tutorial with Mario, Toadette runs off crying knowing she will not see him for the rest of the adventure. After Punio returns to Boggly Woods, Toadette leaves a message on the notice board in Rogueport wondering where he went. If Mario attempts to fix the Happy Lucky Lottery and is caught, Lucky mentions that he had to tell Toadette she will not be able to play. He also claims that this caused her to "burst into tears."

Mario Party series

Toadette has become a recurring character in the Mario Party series since her debut in the series in Mario Party 6. In Mario Party 6, Toadette is unlocked by paying the Star Bank thirty Power Stars. Toadette appears as a co-host in Mario Party Advance rather than playable. She hosts Party Land along Toad and is the only host of Challenge Land. She also hosts Duel Dash. Toadette returns playable in Mario Party 7. Unlike the precedent, Mario Party 6, she does not need to be unlocked. In this game, Toad is her default partner and they share the same special orb, the Triple 'Shroom Orb, which allows her and Toad to roll two dice blocks for three turns. Toadette once again is a default playable character in Mario Party 8.

Though not a playable participant, Toadette appears as one of the Board Hosts in Mario Party DS with her own board, Toadette's Music Room. Toadsworth is going to conduct her music recital, but Hammer Bro. ruins their plans by trashing Toadette's Music Room and breaking many of her instruments. Toadette has to enlist the help of Mario and the gang to counter the threat and to expel Hammer Bro. She also keeps the music stand from her would-be recital in her room afterward, along with two mysterious Metronomes that only Toadsworth knows the secrets of. Toadette also appears as a target in the minigame Hot Shots where thirty points are deducted if hit. Mario Party DS also states that after Peach heard Toadette played an inspiring music piece, she gave her a set of trumpets. Peach was touched when she discovered how happy Toadette was to receive them.

Mario Baseball series

Mario Superstar Baseball

Mario Superstar Baseball is Toadette's first sports appearance as a playable character (aside from Mario Kart). Toadette is a speed character who starts on Peach's team in Challenge Mode. Toadette ties with Yoshi as the fastest character in the game, and she also happens to be the only sub-character with two special abilities: "Sliding Catch" and "Wall Jump". Toadette must be unlocked by completing Challenge Mode as Peach's team. She has good chemistry with Peach, the Toads, and Toadsworth.

Mario Super Sluggers

Toadette's appearance in Mario Super Sluggers.

Toadette makes another playable appearance in Mario Super Sluggers, where she is available from the start. In Challenge Mode, she is part of Peach's team, the Peach Monarchs. Like in the first game, she is a speed character. She has Enlarge for an ability, which she grows and hits third or home base player if she succeeds in a close-play. She has good chemistry with Princess Peach, the Toads, Toadsworth, the Nokis, and Birdo. She has bad chemistry with Paragoomba.

Players can recruit her by visiting Peach Ice Garden. The only requirement of recruiting her in the team is to fix the pattern of the hedge, which is the shape of a Mushroom. After players have flipped, rotated, and switched the pattern blocks, the hedge gets completed and a three-way path shows up, which enables players to advance. Toadette then insists to join the team, saying, "You need me! I won't take no for an answer!", also implying her insistent and stubborn personality. Toadette also shows concern about Peach's flowers since something is blocking them from growing.

Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix

During the events of Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Toadette opens a hotel by the sea in World 2-1. However, because of the chaos caused by the removal of the Music Keys from Truffle Towers, her hotel becomes twisted like a corkscrew. Mario/Luigi and Toad arrives and Toadette yells at them for turning her hotel into a corkscrew. By the request of Toadette, Mario/Luigi and Toad along with Toadette and the guests, uses the power of dancing to return her hotel to its original shape.

After fixing her hotel, Toadette directs Mario/Luigi and Toad to the location of where they can find the next Music Key; however, she soon becomes upset when she notices that the heroes had run-off to find the crystal while she was still speaking. Toadette makes a later cameo appearance where she can be seen waving farewell from the outskirts of her hotel to Mario/Luigi and Toad as they prepare to leave World 2 after retrieving the Music Key.

Yakuman DS

Toadette appeared as a default opponent in the Japan-exclusive game, Yakuman DS. Despite her playable roles in many other multiplayer games she appears in, she appears only as an opponent.

Main article: Toadette/Characteristics

Toadette is a female Toad, so she is adorned in pink. She has brown shoes, looking the same as Toad's, but her clothing is different. She wears a short, pink dress with a white outline, and her vest is red with a gold trim. Toad is jealous of that vest, cause his favorite color is red, obviously. The mushroom on her head is also pink with large white dots, and she has pink mushroom hair that goes down her back. She has the same memorable, happy face as Toad. Nothing can keep her from smiling, not even being hit by a Spiny Shell or falling of down a bottomless hole.

Personality and Traits

Toadette is generally a happy and upbeat girl. She is portrayed as being a nice, sensitive person, and she enjoys being with others; she has similar personality traits to Toad. However it is shown she can get childish very easily.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, she states that she likes animals, and that she is saddened when Punio stops visiting the sewers. Also, if players change the time on their GameCube's clock, Lucky, who runs the Rogueport lottery, mentions that the lottery numbers are messed up because someone has changed the clock, and when he tells this to Toadette, she "cried her little eyes out", showing that at times she can be very emotional. This is also supported when, at the conclusion of the last tutorial session with Mario, Toadette runs off crying knowing she will not see him for the rest of his adventure. In Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, she was portrayed as quite pushy, forcing Mario and Toad to fix her hotel even though they are in a hurry to find the Music Keys. Mario Super Sluggers also has shown that Toadette is determined and stubborn, as she claims that fellow teammates need her and that she does not take no for an answer.

Mario Party DS indicates that she is interested in music and musical instruments, even to the point of going to play in a recital. Toadette stays up late practicing a wide array of instruments ranging from trumpets, to violins, to even a small silver hand bell.

Relationship with Other Characters


Main article: Mario

Toadette and Mario are friends. Toadette often helps, assists, or provides activities to him (such as the Duel Challange in Mario Party Advance). It is hinted in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door that she may have a crush on him, as she blushes every time she compliments him and cries when leaving after showing him the last weapon, the Ultra Hammer. Also, she speaks to him with hearts in many of the speech bubbles. When leaving, she indicates a concern for his safety. She also tells him to rescue Princess Peach, which may mean that she has realized that she and Mario could never be because he belongs with Peach.


Main article: Toad

Much of the background in relation to Toad and Toadette is still unclear at this time. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Toadette is introduced as Toad's partner, which has been continued throughout the spin-off games. In Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, Toadette cameos in Yoshi Park 2 in which pictures of Toad and Toadette appear to be holding flowers for each other (as pictured on the left). The official guides from Prima for Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 8, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe describe the two as being siblings. Additionally, in the ending screen of Mario Kart Wii, the two Toads can be seen to be holding hands in regards to their good relationship. In the introduction of Super Mario Galaxy, both Toads can be seen sitting beside each other in a grassy plain while watching the shooting stars. Their team name in Mario Party 6 indicates that, being the only two playable Toads, they are good friends. Regardless, the two are on good terms, including sharing good chemistry in the baseball games. It is revealed in Mario Party DS that Toad built her a special table by himself (for her music recital) which was later given to her by Peach.
