The crybaby Toad[1] is a character in Paper Mario: Sticker Star.


This Toad is first found bawling in an enclosed garden at Hither Thither Hill. He explains that, while walking around in the area, he got lost and was surrounded by enemies. He asks Mario to escort him back to Decalburg. He will follow Mario throughout most of the rest of the area, but refuses to jump great distances and also cannot come in contact with enemies; if either happens, the Toad will return to his starting location. Once safely escorted back to Decalburg, the crybaby Toad will thank Mario and ask him to visit his house, which is the middle one out of the group of three houses east of the fountain and south of the festival grounds. When visited in his house, the crybaby Toad will reward Mario with a Mushroom, and will also reveal that he heard a phrase he had trouble understanding from some Goombas near the windmill. The phrase is actually "4123", the code Mario must enter inside the windmill to unveil a hidden Warp Pipe needed to reach the Big Buzzy Beetle. The crybaby Toad then remains in his house for the rest of the game.


  • "Mario!"
  • "You heard me crying and came to help! I, uh...guess I was bawling pretty loudly."
  • "See, I was walking around lost in thought when I found myself actually lost. And surrounded by enemies."
  • "No way could I avoid all those things and get back all by myself, so I decided to express my general loneliness. By sobbing. A lot."
  • "Anyway, please take me back to town! I'll follow behind you! I won't get in the way or anything!"
  • "Mario, wait! If I jump down from there, I'll hurt my feet! And then I'll cry!"
  • "Look, I'd better just wait here for you. Come back and get me! Don't forget!"
  • "Oh, thank goodness! You haven't abandoned me yet."
  • "Look, I'm sorry for being such a baby, but my legs just aren't as strong as yours, Mario. We don't all do, like, a thousand jump squats a day."
  • "OK, so I'm going to follow you again... Please take me back to town!"
  • "YEEEEEEEK! It's all over me! I can't take it!"
  • "Oh, thank goodness! You haven't left me to fend for myself."
  • "Listen, I don't mean to be such a wuss, but I'm not a fighter like you, Mario. We don't all stomp, like, a hundred Goombas before breakfast."
  • "If you could just beat up any scary bad guys for me, that'd really help me out."
  • "OK, so I'm going to follow you again... Please take me back to town!"
  • "Finally, we're back aboveground! And all thanks to you, Mario. You make a great bodyguard!"
  • "Now keep it up and get me all the way back to town. Just a little ways to go!"
  • "You did it! You got me back to town! Oh, thank you so much. I'm almost crying with joy!"
  • "I've got a little something to thank you with, so come by my house."
  • "It's the middle house in the group of three up ahead. I'll wait for you there!"
  • "Mario! I've been waiting for you."
  • "As far as thank-you presents go, this is nothing special...but please take it!"
  • "Hey, but speaking of which, when I was all lost in thought and then got lost..."
  • "The Goombas in front of that windmill kept repeating "Forwon toothree! Forwon toothree!" Isn't that weird? I mean, what language is that?"
  • "...Whoa! I almost did it again! I've gotta stop getting lost in thought before I get REALLY lost again."
