The Chancellor
“All we can do is wait here. Don't let us down.”
Chancellor, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

The Chancellor is an adviser to Princess Toadstool. He is an older, green-spotted Toad garbed in green with gold trim. During the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the Chancellor assumes the duties of Peach during her absence. He is also overprotective of the princess, forbidding her from joining Mario in his quest to defeat Smithy. Early in the game, the Chancellor gives Mario a map of Mario World. He also gives Mario authorization to stock up on items in the Mushroom Castle's vault, which is protected by the Vault Guard. Additionally, the Chancellor is easily frightened (like many other Toads). He is scared of Mario's impersonation of King Bowser, and during the Smithy Gang's invasion of the Mushroom Kingdom, the Chancellor hides behind a column in the throne room during the entire occupation. The leader is also forgetful at times. He looks and acts similar to a later character in the series, Toadsworth.

Mushroom Minister (of Government)



  • In a prototype version of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the Chancellor was a bearded, generic, elderly-looking Toad. When the Chancellor was given a new design, his old one was used for the elderly residents of the Mushroom Kingdom, including the shopkeeper of the local Item Shop. The older-looking sprite of the Chancellor may have been a placeholder.
  • The Toad Minister that later appears in Paper Mario may in fact be the Chancellor, as their roles are nearly identical and they have the same title in the Japanese versions of the games.
