Green Energy Plant researcher
The Green Energy Plant researcher (referred to as green Toad Science Guy, science guy, and simply Toad by Huey) is a character in Paper Mario: Color Splash. He resides in the Green Energy Plant, where he conducts research and occasionally enjoys himself in other such hobbies. As he phrases it, he normally researches alternative sources of renewable energy. This process is interrupted by a power outage, though it is quickly resolved.
When Huey approaches the door to the plant to knock, the researcher suddenly pulls him in. When Mario enters the plant, he finds Huey is now in a claw's grip. The researcher reassures him, calling it a Science Claw, explaining he was trying to get energy out of him. He introduces himself and explains his procedures, as well as mentioning a Mini Paint Star flying into the monitor and knocking out all of the power. He asks Mario to restore the power so he may continue his research and play with his Science Claw.
Once the electricity has been recovered, the researcher repositions himself on the other side of the monitor, which he explains is still acting up, projecting unusual images. He informs Mario and Huey he has recently been experimenting their influence on brain activity, and that it is merely quite satisfying. Once the Mini Paint Star has been taken out of the monitor, the researcher states he believes it is due to the high definition. He thanks Mario for having solved the problem, and while slightly disappointed that he cannot research it anymore, suspects that life itself is a mystery.
During the interlude/dance sequence following the return of the green Big Paint Star, the researcher appears on the west side of the plaza, moonwalking next to his chair and Science Claw.
