Toady is a villain that appears in the Mario series games. Toadies are a type of Magikoopa that serve as minions to Kamek. They are typically seen wearing a red outfit that resembles a robe and glasses that are similar to Kamek's. They fly around by using the propeller located on their head. Toady first appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Toady would appear and carry Baby Mario off if Yoshi allowed him to float around too long. The Toadies would then carry Baby Mario back to their master, Kamek. Toadies also appeared in the Nintendo 64 game Yoshi's Story. When a Yoshi died in this game, the Toadies would carry Yoshi back to Bowser's castle.
Mario Party series
Toadies have not played a big role in the Mario Party and were only introduced to the series in Mario Party 5. They have only served as a capsule and an orb in the series, and they also hosted an Item Shop on one of the board maps. Their leader, Kamek, has made more appearances than them, however.
In Mario Party 5, Toady appears as a collectible capsule that is mislabeled as the Magikoopa Capsule. The character that takes the role of the Magikoopa Capsule is, in fact, a Toady. In this game, Toady would appear over a characters head and force them to trade capsules with another character that is chosen by a roulette wheel. The character that the wheel stops on is the opponent that they will be forced to trade their capsules with. Toady appears as an orb in Mario Party 6, where its role has slightly changed. When an opponent lands on a trap space that contains a Toady Orb, Toady will appear and take a random orb from them and gives it to the owner of the trap space. In Mario Party 8, Toady appears as the host of the Item shops in Bowser's Warped Orbit.
- Fawful is a self-described "Toady", but this is in the literal sense of the word (a synonym for "underling") since he is clearly not a member of this species. His glasses and cloak do strongly resemble those worn by a genuine Toady, however.
- Toadies somewhat resemble Shy Guys, but they have no masks.
