  1. Toad

    Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise. Created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, he is portrayed as a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom and is one of Princess Peach's most loyal attendants; constantly working on her behalf. He is usually seen as a non-player character who provides assistance to Mario and his friends in most games, but there are times when Toad takes center stage and appears as the protagonist, as seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 and Wario's Woods. While Toad is an individual, there is also an entire species of the same name based on him, called the Toads or Mushroom People. However, in Japanese, the original species name was only Kino, which means Toad is a member of the toads. In Mario franchise, there are also some other individual toad characters. The common point of most toads is wearing a large mushroom cap and a vest. Starting with Super Mario Sunshine, a newly introduced character known as Toadsworth was introduced as Peach's steward, thus replacing Toad's original role as a helper in games, causing Toad's role to diminish. However, Toad later received various other roles that allowed him to take a more active role within the later Mario games. Additionally, two Toads were featured as playable characters along with Mario and Luigi in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U.
