The Monologue Toad is a character in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. He is a green Toad with a tendency to over-explain certain events. Notably, he is the one to inform the trio of Princess Peach being taken to Mount Brrr. He is later captured by Paper Petey Piranha, requiring another explanation.
This Toad is met in the foyer of Peach's Castle, appearing after Mario, Luigi, and Paper Mario have departed from Twinsy Tropics following their first visit to the area. Once they have entered, a red Toad panics over what is to be done, asking them for suggestions. Monologue Toad, standing next to him, snaps him out of it. He tells the trio his friend is too distraught to speak for himself and proceeds to explain for him. Notably, he tells them to listen carefully to his following text and not to skim through it, alluding to the fast-forward button.
With this matter clarified, the Toad proceeds to give his story. According to him, he was on Mount Brrr and noticed Bowser Jr. and Paper Bowser Jr. taking both Princess Peach and Paper Peach with them. To summarize, he tells the trio Mount Brrr would be their next destination. Right after this, a cutscene plays to determine this. Once the cutscene has played, the Toad reiterates the move and his disbelief to Bowser having a villa.
Suddenly, he collapses on the nearby floor, envisioning the princesses in great distraught and disbelief, with both Bowser Jrs. acting ungrateful. He claims this to be a fate worse than death and vows that Bowser will be stopped. Only after he states this does he realize he slowly strayed from the others during his extensive monologue, all of whom have left. With Toadette and the gang now in front of the castle, the Monologue Toad can be heard moaning at a nearby window. As they are discussing their plans to get to Mount Brrr, the Toad suddenly dashes out of the castle, vowing to find the princesses, or at least his princess, himself.
Unexpectedly, this Toad is encountered again shortly on. He is seen narrowly running from Paper Petey Piranha in front of the path leading to the mountain. After he ends up in his grip, the Toad decides to explain the predicament once more. This time, he directly tells them not to fast forward through his text, with a message on the screen serving as a reminder. He then proceeds to go on a soap box rant. He begins by telling them they had battled a different Petey Piranha. He seems to stray from this topic, citing the arrival of the paper characters and eventually listing some of the trio's best features. He ponders whether they will be able to save the Mushroom Kingdom. As he is wondering his own fate, Paper Petey Piranha tosses him out of sight. He is never seen or mentioned again after this.
