Frogs (Japanese: カエル, Kaeru) are an order of animals. In the Mario franchise, real-world frogs exist along with anthropomorphic frogs who are sentient and are capable of speech.
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
The Tadpole Pond is inhabited by large, sapient frogs in the duration of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Mallow was raised by the frogs (specifically Frogfucius) and believed that he, himself, was a frog as well. The young tadpoles comprise a greater part of the population than the frogs, of which there are only two.
Diddy Kong Racing
In Diddy Kong Racing and its remake, several frogs live in the pond in the hub. One of these frogs, who has a tell-tale red crest upon its head, is actually Drumstick, who has been put into frog form by Wizpig. He can be freed if the player runs over him in a car.
Frogs make minor appearances in WarioWare series. In WarioWare: Mega Microgame$ microgame What's the Toadal?, frogs must be counted. Strange-looking frogs appear in the Nature folder microgames Hoppin' Mad and The Frog Flap. In WarioWare: Twisted, orange frogs appear in Launchpad.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Frogs appear again in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. In this game, they are pigmented with warm colors, ranging from vermilion red on their body skin to yellow on their webbed toes. They croak when discovered and act as ambiance creatures. They do not actively try to injure Luigi, but can drain five heart points from his health meter if they run into him. They can be defeated with the Strobulb, dropping a Coin once they disappear.
The Frogs are mainly found in the Haunted Towers. They also show up in the final King Boo battle, with special giant versions of the regular frogs appearing as well, which may spawn from spiked balls after King Boo slams the ground. These giant frogs, however, do not grant any treasure upon getting flashed with the Strobulb.
The game also features a more precious variant of frogs called Gold Frogs, which reward Luigi multiple Gold Bars if he uses the Strobulb on them. Gold Frogs can be primarily found on the East Balcony of the Treacherous Mansion.
Super Mario Odyssey
Frogs appear in Super Mario Odyssey, where they can be found in Bonneton. They can be controlled by Mario and Cappy. As a frog, shaking the Joy-Con causes Mario to preform a High Jump, allowing him to reach tall platforms.
In Super Mario Bros. 3, there is a Frog Suit that allows Mario to become Frog Mario and Luigi to become Frog Luigi; small frogs appear as foreground objects in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, but have no effect on gameplay.
