“Come see me next time there's a mail delivery!”
The Mailtoad is a light purple (or pink due to his coloration) Toad from Super Mario Galaxy, who is a member of the Toad Brigade. Unlike the other Toad Brigade members, Mailtoad is unique in that he periodically delivers messages to Mario in the Comet Observatory and on Starship Mario. Once his team is rescued in the Honeyhive Galaxy, he will start delivering his mail. He also goes on missions to various other galaxies with the rest of the Toad Brigade. For some reason, he is the only member of the Toad Brigade that does not return in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
Super Mario Galaxy
After the Toad Brigade is rescued by Mario, Mailtoad will have a letter from Princess Peach containing five 1-Ups (or 20 if the player selects Luigi) every once in a while. He continues to deliver mail to Mario throughout the entire game, and will post certain messages on the Wii message board. Mailtoad will also give Mario various other letters, such as when Luigi finds a Power Star and needs rescuing, and Mailtoad includes a picture of where Luigi and the Star are. At the start of the game he is located near the Garage but after Mario gets his second Grand Star he will have moved near Rosalina.
Along with the other members of the Toad Brigade, Mailtoad can be seen throughout several different galaxies. He seems to have a carefree personality, as seen when Mario first finds the Toad Brigade and he sings cheerfully. Mailtoad apparently enjoys snorkeling, as he can often be found wearing a snorkel and will sometimes be seen underwater. He claims to have a "Level One Snorkel-Toad Certification". In Purple Coin levels, he will tell Mario if he saw any of the coins underwater or not. He also tries racing the penguins in Sea Slide Galaxy, but fails to win.
When Mailtoad first introduces himself to Mario in the Comet Observatory, he refers to himself as "a mailtoad", implying that there are other Toads with this same job.
After the player has collected all the Purple Coins in Grand Finale Galaxy, the Mailtoad will receive a message. If the player talks to him, he will send a congratulatory picture to the Wii Message Board. This picture differs depending on whether the player spoke to the Mailtoad as Mario or Luigi. If Mario speaks to him, the picture will show Mario and Peach standing on the Starting Planet of the Good Egg Galaxy with some Lumas, including Young Master Luma. If Luigi speaks to the Mailtoad, the picture will feature Luigi and Rosalina standing in front of Peach's Castle with the Toad Brigade. The picture can also be sent to friends.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Mailtoad stands on Starship Mario, ready to deliver letters whenever Mario returns from a Power Star mission. If Mailtoad has a letter or postcard, a small letter symbol appears over his head. The player needs to speak to Mailtoad to receive the message. Some letters are from Peach include bonus 1-Up Mushrooms. When Mario receives an invitation for a special event or challenge, Mailtoad also presents this to the plumber. Mailtoad keeps all delivered mail handy, so if Mario ever wants to revisit a past correspondence, he can just speak to the mailtoad unlike in the first game where past messages from the Mailtoad could not be read again.
This is a list of all the mail Mailtoad delivers in the game:
Additionally, if the player loses a certain amount of lives in one save file, then talks to the Mailtoad in another save file, they will receive the same number of 1-Up Mushrooms on the latter save file.
