Could this Toad be Prof. Kinopio from Paper Mario: Color Splash? Both are yellow-capped Toads that study archaeology and are referred to as professors. I wouldn't doubt that these are the same character, especially with how much The Origami King is inspired by Color Splash. I suggest we wait for the game to come out to decide for sure, but the similarity should be at least noted. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 16:56, June 12, 2020 (EDT)

I seriously doubt they're the same person. Mario Sakuraba (talk)

Why, though? "Professor Toad" is likely translated right from the JP name, which would be Prof. Kinopio. It seems most likely IMO they are intended as the same. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:53, June 12, 2020 (EDT)
Paper Mario: Color Splash takes place on Prism Island where the Professor in that game focused mainly on the fossil in Marmalade Valley, while Paper Mario: The Origami King takes place in the Mushroom Kingdom where this professor is focused on this ruin area, and he doesn't appear to know Mario. We'll know for sure when the game comes out but I think it's too soon to assume they would be the same person. Mario Sakuraba (talk)
OK it turns out he was talking to Olivia about not knowing who she was. Mario Sakuraba (talk)
Let's just wait for more information about the game before we make any solid judgement calls. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 19:01, June 12, 2020 (EDT)
He is a yellow Toad, and the pet Chain Chomp that appears in the trailer may be his. However, I'm guessing someone at NoA took the criticism at "Bob-omb" being a generic name for a partner to heart, because the Japanese trailer refers to him and Professor Toad as Bomuhei and Kinopio. We may be looking at another Captain/Blue Toad scenario. Either way, agreed to wait until the final game is out. LinkTheLefty (talk) 20:01, June 12, 2020 (EDT)

Should the top quote be changed to something else? The quote we have now was up there before the game came out, and I think there are a few quotes in the game that fit him better. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
