The Fortune Toad is a minor character in Paper Mario: The Origami King. He is a green Toad set up just outside the Earth Vellumental Temple, next to accessories stand. Mario can purchase fortunes from him for 100 coins each. Each fortune Mario buys has a direct, minor, and immediate impact on what happens to him after reading it. The effects can be positive, negative, or neither.
