“It's a mystery for the ages. Strange dotted lines...appearing out of the ether...transcending the very boundaries of time and space! Grab your transdimensional scissors and join me as we explore... Deep Cuts.”
"Deep Cuts" Toad, Paper Mario: Color Splash

The "Deep Cuts" Toad is a purple Toad that appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash. His catchphrase refers to a term used in music fandoms when someone cites an obscure or unpopular song in an artist's body of work as their favorite.

The Toad can be found late in the game in the yellow district of Port Prisma, by a wall near the entrance to the Action Command Dojo. He is very interested in areas that the Cutout ability can be used on, which he refers to as "Deep Cuts." If Mario gives the "Deep Cuts" Toad 50 coins, he will give a hint to where the Cutout ability can be used. He will tell Mario the hint again for free if he asks again. When Mario finds the Cutout that the "Deep Cuts" Toad hinted to him about, he will give Mario the option to give him 50 more coins for another hint.

The "Deep Cuts" Toad has various unused recolors in the game's data. While the "Deep Cuts" Toad does not appear in Paper Mario: The Origami King, he has a set of unused graphics. These also show him from the front for the first time, revealing that he has a worried expression.
