Attack Piece Toad
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Attack Piece Toad is a character in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. He is a red Toad with an interest in Attack Pieces. He is found in Mushrise Park, where he provides two Attack Pieces along with an explanation on how they are used. Later on, he is found in a hotel in Wakeport, although he is not immediately recognized.
This Toad is first seen in an intermediate region of Mushrise Park, being harassed and cornered by two Thorbs. As he begs for help, Mario and Luigi have no choice but to rescue him. Interestingly, this battle serves as a tutorial for attacking with hammers. After the Thorbs are defeated, the Toad thanks them for saving him, claiming he was not expecting to be attacked during his holiday. At that, he remembers an Attack Piece he found during his tour of the park, showing little interest in it at first, even offering to give it to the brothers as thanks, saying he was going to toss it anyway. He explains they are found in Attack Piece Blocks, as informed by his tour guide. He suggests they view the Guide Map for additional information on finding Attack Pieces before he remembers to give them a tutorial on accessing the map via the menu. After this is said and done, he walks away, promising to give them any Attack Pieces he finds.
This Toad appears shortly later on, during the moment Mario and Luigi try to persuade a Brock to let them through to see Brickle. Fortunately for them, he arrives with another Attack Piece, and is proud of himself for doing so. He remembers another conversation with his tour guide mentioning there are ten Attack Pieces in every set, and collecting all of them in a region unlocks a new Bros. Attack. He persuades the Brock to let them pass provided they learn at least one power move, which he agrees to. The nine Attack Pieces Mario and Luigi find previously in the park, combined with the Attack Piece the Toad provides them at this moment, completes the set and unlocks the first Bros. Attack, 3D Red Shell. Suddenly, a Capnap appears behind the Toad and Brock, scaring them away and giving Mario and Luigi an opportunity to test the Bros. Attack.
A Toad found in one of the middle hotels of the Wakeport suburbs claims to be the same Toad who supplied them with the Attack Pieces, and is concerned that they have difficult recognizing him. Nevertheless, he informs them the Attack Pieces in this area are obtained by speaking to staff and visitors, in addition to being in blocks. He remains here, at peace, for the rest of the game.
