This 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 asks the Bros if they wish to play hide-and-seek with him. If they accept, he will begin hiding in random locations around the mall. He will start 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 behind the curtain in Toadles Boutique, then back to his first hiding spot. If the player goes outside the mall area, they will have to start over from the beginning. After the player finds the Toad in all five hiding spots, he will reward the Bros with a Small Shell, and wait some time before initiating another game of hide-and-seek.
In the remake, the Toad's cap colors are reversed to stay consistent with other Toads, but he otherwise has the same appearance and role.
