First appearance Paper Mario (2000)

Little T. is a character in Paper Mario. He does not make an appearance, but Mario receives a letter from the character during Chapter 1. In the letter, he states that he is a little Toad who trains at the Dojo in Toad Town. Little T. is an amateur fighter, but he has a lot of spirit as he wants to save Princess Peach some day. He is one of the first characters in the game to send Mario a letter.

The photo he attaches on the letter depicts him as a red-spotted young Toad, wearing white clothes with a belt and training barefoot with a green and a blue Toad. He says in the letter that he will write to Mario again, though this is the only letter from him in the game.

His name is a pun on "little Toad". In the Japanese version of Paper Mario, he is just called “Chibi Kinopio” (Little Toad). He also uses the masculine pronoun boku to refer to himself, indicating that he is male.[1]
