Huh?[edit]

Where the heck nintendo said that this blue toad is the same as the SMS and MvsDk one?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

It's unofficial if it is a Blue Toad or the Blue Toad from the Toad Brigade.GalladeBack.pngGalladeBladesGallade2.png

The article should just be called Blue Toad as it isn't known if the Blue Toad is always the same (the same goes for Yellow Toad). --Grandy02 09:59, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I guess we could make one catch-all article for all instances of a character Blue Toad. Certainly less confusing and more efficient than the way we do it now.--Knife (talk) 18:26, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

I think we should move the article's name to Blue Toad. Or make an article named Blue Toad (specie) and merge the SMS, MvsDK into there and only leave the SMG one here.PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png16:05, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Official or conjectural ?[edit]

Is the name Blue Toad official ?

Well he's never called anything else.

Ok, but where has he been called "Blue Toad" ?
Banon (talk · edits) 09:36, 4 January 2013 (EST)

That's a good point. I don't know myself, but let's wait for some more input from other users.

Wait, doesn't that mean it is conjectural?

Hi! I'm Shadow rocks!

We don't know the source of the name yet, so it's best to leave the {{Conjecture}} off the article until we confirm that the title is actually conjectural.

I think that he is actually Toadbert from the Mario and Luigi rpgs. Notice his very similar appearance and the fact that the "Blue Toad" has glasses. It could be Toadbert.

Yes, it's already written "Blue Toad shares many similar characteristics and looks similar to the characters Toadbert and Russ T. as they are all blue-spotted Toads, are intelligent, and wear glasses.". But there are also some differences, so I don't think they are the same or that we should merge.

Rename to "Blue Toad (Toad Brigade)"?[edit]

Now that Captain Toad's game is released, it seems somewhat inappropriate to name this page after the character's first appearance as opposed to his general role. The Toad Brigade appears to exist in Captain Toad's game, so this name seems more appropriate. This would also apply to Yellow Toad (Super Mario Galaxy).

Name Change[edit]

I believe that we should change the page name to Hint Toad as that is his first and only official name and it stops confusion between him and other blue toads throughout the series. Seandwalsh (talk) 19:02, 26 October 2017 (EDT)

Two Blue Toads[edit]

If this is the Blue Toad of the Toad Brigade, who's that other Blue Toad in the Lost Kingdom in Odyssey that asks about Captain Toad's whereabouts? Shy Guy pose SMM.png Mario JC 04:43, 8 November 2017 (EST)

Does he have glasses? If so, it might be a similar situation to Mailtoad appearing in King Kaliente's Battle Fleet.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:50, 8 November 2017 (EST)
He doesn't, and both Toads appear at the same time. (Also I thought the Toads frozen in ice in King Kaliente's Battle Fleet were just regular Toads?) Shy Guy pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:07, 8 November 2017 (EST)
Why would they be when all the other Toads that made it to space became the brigade? Anyways, given they already have one new member, it wouldn't be a surprise if this were a cameo of Toad from Super Mario 3D World or the other Blue Toad... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:34, 8 November 2017 (EST)
