How to Draw Captain Toad is an activity on the Play Nintendo website.[1] Published following the releases of the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS versions of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, it is a program that allows users to color in a line art drawing of either Captain Toad or Toadette. In the activity's summary, there is a link which used to lead to a drawing lesson video.[2]

The user first has the option to color either Captain Toad or Toadette. Once the user makes their choice, they are taken to an artboard, where they can choose from nine different colors and three different brush sizes. The user can also choose to erase parts that they colored in, use the arrows to undo or redo an action or click the "clear all" button to delete every color that they added. The user can turn off the outline, making the artboard a blank white canvas, and go into the full screen by clicking the button in the top right corner. Once the user is done coloring the picture, they can download it and save it to their device.


The activity corresponds to a sing-along drawing video of Captain Toad in the style of The Mario Drawing Song, presented and performed over the Toad Brigade theme by former Nintendo Minute hosts Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang.[2] The song's lyrics are as follows:

Draw a circle, add the face
Draw a bigger circle, add the light
Draw a road! Add some spots!
Hooray for Captain Toad!
