In Mario Party 4, he had his own board, Toad’s Midway Madness. In Mario Party 4 to today, he is a playable character. In the Story Mode of Mario Party 5, he assists you in 2 VS. 2 mini-games. In Mario Party 7, his Special Orb is the Triple Mushroom Orb, which allows him to use two dice for three turns.
Toad (Japanese キノピオ Kinopio) is Princess Peach’s attendant and a long time protector of the Mushroom Kingdom. He is actually a singular character among an entire species of look-alikes (much like Yoshi). He usually has the role of a supporting character who tries to help Mario on his adventures, however, he is occasionally a playable character and a main protagonist at times as well. He once made many appearances in the mainstream Mario games, but has lately been reduced to being a playable character in the Mario spin-off titles, while Toadsworth has taken over many of his previous roles.
