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.

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 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?

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

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.

@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

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.

@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.

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

They got creepy, beady little eyes.

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

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.

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.

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.

@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.

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.
