“The five of us are really good friends. We never get sick of one another's insufferable personalities and irritating faces.”
Five Fun Guys, Paper Mario: Color Splash

The Five Fun Guys are a quintuplet of green Toads who appear in Paper Mario: Color Splash. They are found at Bloo Bay Beach during Oceanfest. The Five Fun Guys' troupe name is a pun on "fungi", the plural of the word "fungus".


They, along with their manager, usually host two games that determine if someone is worthy enough to enter Blissful Beach. Their first challenge is a game called "Toad-and-Go Seek", which is a Hide-and-Seek game around Bloo Bay Beach. The second one known as "Toad Shuffle". Mario finds them, in the first challenge, in the following places:

  • Up a palm tree nearby the platform.
  • Hidden nearby the tree, in a sandcastle.
  • In the Prisma Café, hidden behind the manager of the aforementioned bar.
  • Buried up to the neck, just next to the giant clam.
  • Inside the giant clam.

After this challenge, they next perform the "Toad Shuffle", where the rules are to track one of the quintuplets who happens to hold the key to the gate of Blissful Beach. Following their manager giving the one with a crease the key and shuffling around, Mario then picks the one he is certain has the key only to come up empty-handed. This event is actually rigged so that Mario always loses, as the Toad who has the key in his hand will suddenly pass it to another Toad, which Mario proves by painting the Toad who has the key, having the manager shuffle the five again, talking to the one that was marked, only for that Toad to give it to the neighboring one.

In return for Mario's silence so that they won't be "scandalized by the media", they surrender the key to Blissful Beach. If Mario and Huey relax on Blissful Beach before proceeding to the yellow Mini Paint Star, the five show up and dance while Mario and Huey rest.

  • One of the Toads mentions that Mario knows about the Angry Sun, a reference to Super Mario Bros. 3.
