Pea, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Peas[1] are small Beanish people appearing in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and the Nintendo 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. Inhabitants of the Beanbean Kingdom, they serve Queen Bean and appear in a variety of areas throughout the kingdom. This makes them similar to Toads from the Mushroom Kingdom.

Many Peas appear in Beanbean Castle. During the events of the game, they are captured by Cackletta and Fawful and held in the Beanbean Castle Sewer until they are rescued by Mario and Luigi. Fawful himself disguises as a Pea during the opening cutscene of the game, in which Princess Peach's voice is stolen. Though he wears similar clothing, he retains his glasses and grin.

After Mario and Luigi battle and defeat Queen Bean and head toward Chucklehuck Woods, a Pea chases them to the bridge outside the castle and gives Mario the Bean Badge, before offering a demonstration on how to equip badges.
