The world of Mario is full of cute and quirky characters.
The worlds of Pokémon and Super Mario all have their own quirks and eccentricities.
But in the Mario universe, the most famous mascot of all, the legendary Toad, is an actual creature.
The character has been around for almost three decades, and for many fans, the Toad has become a bit of a household name.
“Toad is a giant of a character, and he has been a mainstay of our universe for over a decade,” said Chris Perkins, creative director at Nintendo of America.
“In the last few years, he’s grown up and become a more prominent member of the team.
But it’s never been anything less than a character who has stood the test of time and made fans and fanservice fans alike.”
