Pine T. Sr.

Pine T. Sr. is a Toad in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door who ventured into the Pit of 100 Trials to find treasures after he lost his job. Unfortunately, he is quickly defeated by the enemies there, and did not return. Upon a request from his worried son, Mario heads into the pit to rescue him. Mario finds Pine T. Sr. unconscious in the 18th floor of the pit. Once Pine T. Sr. wakes up, he has Mario show his way back to the pit's entrance, where he is happily reunited with his son.

Later, Pine T. Sr. is mentioned in his son's e-mail to Mario, in which the father has found a new job taking care of Li'l Oinks in Toad Town.
