Justice Toad is a red Toad and one of the three Chosen Toads in Paper Mario: Color Splash. He first appears in Cherry Lake, but later moves to the Crimson Tower and stays there for the rest of the game.
When Mario and Huey arrive at the red Mini Paint Star at Port Prisma, one of Bowser's airships flies into view. It carries a large bucket of red paint, and a Toad is seen clinging onto the bucket. However, Huey does not seem to notice the Toad, instead questioning if the paint was all stolen from Port Prisma.
After arriving at Cherry Lake, Mario and Huey see the airship once again. The Toad's grip loosens and he falls off, into the lake. Huey is worried and encourages Mario to look for him. Later, the Toad is seen again stuck in a tree, almost being blown away by gusts of wind. Mario removes the Fan causing the wind, and opens a path to the Toad. Mario must approach the tree and hammer it, sending the Toad to the ground. He realizes that he is not wearing any clothes besides his underwear and quickly runs to hide behind a bush. Introducing himself as Justice Toad, he thanks Mario for saving him and explains why he was stuck on the airship. Justice Toad says that he had seen the paint being stolen and grabbed onto the bucket, but the airship moved so fast that he could not hold on and lost his clothing items while falling. Huey initially assumes that Justice Toad is joking about his name, but agrees to help him anyways.
Mario must find Justice Toad's shoes, pants, journal, and vest around Cherry Lake and deliver them to him. With all his items back, Justice Toad gets dressed and hops out from behind the bush. He promises to help them, and while Huey is still skeptical, he tells Justice Toad about a blue Mini Paint Star just out of reach. When he arrives, Justice Toad says that he can help and begins squatting, trying to use his "powers of justice." Huey leaves, unimpressed, only for Justice Toad to grow a key out of his head and use telekinesis to move the Mini Paint Star. They both react in surprise, with Justice Toad not knowing that he truly had superpowers. He states that he will continue to stay at Cherry Lake until his help is needed.
Once Mario and Huey visit the Crimson Tower and observe the gate out front, they realize that Justice Toad's key is shaped like one of the keyholes. Mario must return to Cherry Lake and talk to Justice Toad, who then flies off to the Crimson Tower using his superpowers. Once Justice Toad, Surfing Kinopio, and the Mountain Sage have been gathered at the gate, they jump into the keyholes. Justice Toad instructs Mario to force them in, and after all three are hit with Mario's hammer, the gate opens and their heads appear through holes at the top.
Justice Toad is seen again during the dance once the red Big Paint Star is recovered, sticking out his key with the other Chosen Toads. He reappears during the celebration at Port Prisma after Black Bowser is defeated. Additionally, Mario can visit Justice Toad at any time by going to the entrance of the Crimson Tower. As Mario progresses, Justice Toad states that he is thinking of a move to instantly defeat enemies, but realizes that there may not be any enemies left by the time he gets out of the gate.
