Toadette (キノピコ , lit. Kid Toad?) is a member of the Toad species who appears as a playable character in various spin-off games. Her name is a portmanteau of the word Toad (which she is a member of the species), and the word ‘ette’ which can be used to make words more feminine or can be used to refer to smaller words (such as kitchenette). She is first introduced in Mario Kart: Double Dash as the partner of Toad. She was then shown in Mario Party 6 as an unlockable character. In other games, she simply acts as an instructor or a background character, for example in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She has a cameo alongside Toad in the intro of Super Mario Galaxy. She also appears in Mario Super Sluggers as a playable character for the Peach Monarchs, as well as New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe with a transformation dubbed Peachette, as well as appearing in Super Mario Odyssey in Princess Peach's Castle to give Mario Power Moons for completing different tasks.
Toadette is a female Toad. She has the same size as Toad, but there are some differences: her mushroom hat is pink with white spots and long round braids. Her eyes are oval and black, her mouth is always smiling, and she wears a pink dress.
In this form, she resembles Princess Peach. However, there are differences, such as the notably different dress, Toad cap-like crown, gray pupils, hairtails, and Toad-like shoes. This Peach-like form makes a debut in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
In addition to Her sweet appearance, Toadette is usually portrayed as being a happy and sensitive person.
Toadette was emotional when Punio stopped visiting the Rogueport Sewers. If players change the GameCube clock time, Lucky who runs the lottery, says the lottery numbers are screwed up because of the clock change. When he tells Toadette, she cried her little eyes out. The final time this was shown was when the final tutorial session is finished, Toadette runs off crying knowing that she would not see Mario for the rest of the game.
In Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Toadette is pushy because she forced Mario and Toad to fix their hotel. In Mario Super Sluggers, Toadette was shown to be very determined and stubborn when she claimed that the team needed her, and she would not take no for an answer.
