The hide-and-seek Toad is a character in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake. He is a young blue Toad found throughout the mall area of Toad Town. In the original game, his cap is colored blue with white spots, while in the remake, his cap colors are reversed to stay consistent with other Toads.

The hide-and-seek Toad is first seen leaving the Badge Shop out of frustration once Mario and Luigi reach the area where Toadley Clinic is located. When spoken to, he expresses his boredom from his parents' shopaholic natures, and he asks the Mario Bros. if they wish to play hide-and-seek with him. If they accept, he begins hiding in random locations around the mall. He starts behind the "blorbed" Toad to the east of the same area, then behind the right tree inside the Item Shop, then behind the entrance pipe near the Tea Kiosk, then in the changing room in Toadles Boutique, then back to his first hiding spot. If the player goes outside the mall area, they have to start over from the beginning. After the player finds the Toad in all five hiding spots, he rewards the Mario Bros. with a Small Shell, and he waits some time before initiating another game of hide-and-seek.
