Poll: Do you think Toad is cute? (615 votes)

I think Toad is cute 58%
I do not think Toad is cute 42%

I've always thought Toad was cute, like a weird little toddler who wears a mushroom hat and who's just always happy and trying to help. In recent years I think he's become kind of a meme with the raspy voice in certain incarnations and what not. But even with that voice, I think he's cute.

I mean how can you not think he's cute?

He’s reminded me of a clicker ever since The Last of Us, so no.

#2 Posted by nicksmi56 (828 posts) -

Yeah, I've got no problem with the little guys ^_^ except in New Super Mario Bros Wii where they were screaming at me to save them every other level... >:(

But yeah, he's a cool dude 99% of the time. Still want Captain Toad to be ported to Switch actually. Or 3D World so I can try his levels out while also getting some classic Mario goodness.

I like Toad. He's my guy in Mario Kart/Party. Always bet on the toad!

Unequivocally.

This thread is a goddamn nightmare factory. Quality work, everybody.

#8 Posted by TheHT (15786 posts) -

lol what? people see that as underwear? always registered to me as a type of harem pants, or whatever they're called. like Aladdin pants. I mean, he's got the vest and all.

#9 Posted by jacksukeru (6767 posts) -

I don't mind the little guys, but I also don't find their looks cute.

#10 Posted by imhungry (1096 posts) -

I was gonna vote no but I scrolled down and saw the pictures in this thread and now I'm on board.

#11 Posted by Tom_omb (1073 posts) -

@theht: I'm with you there, but I'm glad the art posted above exists.

#12 Posted by Yesiamaduck (2509 posts) -

Nah

I don't look at my full English breakfast or Pizza was doughy eyes so why would i for a mushroom with a waist coat.

#13 Posted by wchigo (899 posts) -

I lean more towards cute rather than not and that's how I voted, but mostly cause the options in the poll were binary. If allowed more nuance, I'd say I'm somewhere in the middle.

@frostyryan: I'd been thinking this for a while and so I finally decided to ask. The dude in your avatar is Colin, the Canadian dude who occasionally guest stars on Red Letter Media's "Best of the Worst" feature, right?

#14 Posted by uhtaree (944 posts) -

Not really. There's a little something off about him.

#15 Posted by Superharman (284 posts) -

Now look, I'm a 36 year old man, I read literature, watch intelligent films and all that...and I own a Toad amiibo, a Captain Toad plushie and my girlfriend got me a large Toad figure for Christmas last year. Toad rules and I want another Captain Toad game.

#16 Posted by FrostyRyan (2885 posts) -

@wchigo: yup that's him, from one of my favorite Best of the worst moments when Jay says ELOISE COLE IS DEAD and Colin bursts out laughing while the camera zooms in on his face

#17 Posted by clagnaught (2100 posts) -

Toad is more of a thing to me. I never really had an opinion of Toad(s) beyond how his more recent voice that was featured in those later Mario Party games is awful. So if this was based upon if I think his old man gravelly voice that is not nearly as good as his voice in Mario Party 1 is cute, then the answer is no.

#18 Posted by wchigo (899 posts) -

@frostyryan: Ok, cause I love that feature and I love it whenever Colin and the other guy (who's name I unfortunately can't recall at this moment) are on it. Which episode was that? I'll have to go back and watch it.

#19 Posted by shivermetimbers (1674 posts) -

Yeah, if there was fungus on my head, I'd want it checked out ASAP. But other than that, he's alright.

#20 Posted by geirr (3727 posts) -

Captain Toad and Toadette are cute, so y..es..no?

#21 Edited by Eroq (84 posts) -

They got creepy, beady little eyes.

Toadsworth (More-so the chancellor in SMRPG) and Captain Toad are alright though.

#22 Posted by notnert427 (2158 posts) -

Nope. Toad is the worst. I find his unrelenting positivity disingenuous and annoying. Definitely my least favorite Mario character. The only redeeming quality of Toad is that he was part of Drew's amazing "No Russian" joke in one of the Mario Parties.

King Boo, though? King Boo says fuck everything, and I can appreciate that.

@trilogy: That's a really good picture of Toad.

#24 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (7827 posts) -

How is the top answer not at 100%?

#25 Posted by elmorales94 (369 posts) -

@damodar: This is a very good Toad. I don't see why Nintendo won't let him into their hearts.

#26 Posted by DarkeyeHails (564 posts) -

I think Toad is fucking sexy.

I mean, no.

#27 Posted by SSully (5623 posts) -

Toad is a bitch

#28 Posted by Gamer_152 (14730 posts) -

I feel pretty neutral about Toad. He's very mildly annoying, not that impressive as a character, and his jump was terrible in Mario 2, but he's also harmless and cheerful.

I never knew people thought those were underwear until today... those are not underwear, people.

Toad is cute.

#30 Posted by Cerberus3Dog (1021 posts) -

As long as he doesn't speak, sure.

#32 Posted by Vashyron (310 posts) -

What the hell kind of forum thread did I stumble into?

#33 Posted by MillaJ (285 posts) -

Toad might just as well not exist. He's a dumb thing and doesn't even deserve acknowledgement. He can keep his dumb mouth shut and go stand off to the side somewhere.

#34 Posted by FrostyRyan (2885 posts) -

Wait what's wrong with Toad's voice?

#35 Posted by flasaltine (2543 posts) -

Toad is a hunk

#36 Edited by deactivated-5b85a38d6c493 (1990 posts) -

To quote one Alex Navarro, Toad is a nothing person.

#37 Posted by SkullPanda1 (1623 posts) -

Of course Toad is cute!

#38 Posted by millionthlayla (192 posts) -

I think Toad is cute but the monsters ITT are trying to change that

#39 Posted by FrostyRyan (2885 posts) -

Ok I don't see how "he's nothing" and "he doesn't matter" and "he's irrelevant" have anything to do with the discussion?

#40 Posted by millionthlayla (192 posts) -
#41 Posted by deactivated-5b85a38d6c493 (1990 posts) -

@frostyryan: If he's nothing he can't be cute. So what I'm saying is I don't think Toad is cute, but beyond that he is also a heap of garbage.

I actually always assumed he was wearing a diaper haha

#44 Posted by Spoonman671 (5874 posts) -

Yep.

It's mostly the vest.

#45 Posted by IndeedCodyBrown (602 posts) -

Toad is too cute if you don't think Toad is cute you are trash.

#46 Posted by Emperor_Norton (100 posts) -

Regular Toad? No.

Very Good Toad? 100%

#47 Posted by Pierre42 (454 posts) -

Toad are grizzled vets from the long lasting Bowser wars before the Mario Brothers ended the stalemate. Their voices are so raspy because they were affected by chemical weapons that Toadsworth signed off on.

Toadette runs a clinic to provide support and counselling to those who were traumatised by being turned into blocks and saw their friends smashed beside them.

There's still an group trying to campaign that Mario and Luigi should be tried for war crimes for all the blocks they broke in the Bowser wars knowing they used to be Toads.

Toads are strong fast warriors who would dominate on the battlefield if only they could traverse it well but they aren't built for jumping. Toad's not cute.

#48 Posted by OpusOfTheMagnum (647 posts) -

No, he's a creepy son of a bitch.

#49 Posted by liquiddragon (3271 posts) -

Over 40% of you are animals. I can't believe this is even a debate. Toads are cute as FUCK.
