Yellow Toad along with Blue Toad are featured in the forty first and forty second issues of Super Mario-Kun. As the story is based on New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the two Toads are introduced as Mario's new accomplices. Throughout the adaption of the two issues, Yellow Toad plays an important role by journeying alongside Mario, Luigi, and Blue Toad on their quest to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser and his forces.
Both Yellow Toad and Blue Toad are seen in their propeller forms on the cover of issue 41.
Mario Sports Superstars
In Mario Sports Superstars, Yellow Toad appears in two different collectible cards as Yellow Penguin Toad and Yellow Flying Squirrel Toad.
Yellow Toad and the other New Super Mario Bros. Wii heroes were shown as some of the featured characters in the Nintendo 3DS tech demo. He was shown wearing the Propeller Suit in the demo as like in the original game's box art. The 3DS tech demo screen of New Super Mario Bros. Wii (featuring Yellow Toad and his friends) is later an obtainable puzzle in the Puzzle Swap mode of StreetPass Mii Plaza.
Yellow Toad, along with Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad and Miis, are also seen as playable characters in the Wii U tech demo New Super Mario Bros. Mii.
Yellow Toad alongside Blue Toad, Mario, Luigi, the Koopalings, and various other characters from New Super Mario Bros. Wii made cameo appearances in the Wii game Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Minna de Party Sandaime where the characters can be seen dancing to the various tracks featured in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
While Yellow Toad is absent from Super Mario 3D World (as he was replaced by Princess Peach in that game), when Toad grabs a Fire Flower, he uses the same color-scheme as Fire Yellow Toad.
Yellow Toad also appears on two Battle Cards in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a spirit showing Yellow Toad's Flying Squirrel form appears.
Unlike the other Toads in the game (with the exception being Blue Toad), Yellow Toad is shown to be an extremely noble character as seen in the intro of New Super Mario Bros. Wii where he ran right after the Mario Bros. to help them on their quest to save Princess Peach. He even went on to fighting the several bosses in the game including Bowser himself at the end (something that most Toads would rarely do considering their fear over Bowser).
