Toad is Peach's standard special move in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Peach pulls out Toad and holds him out in front of her to use as a shield and counterattack. If Toad gets attacked, he will counterattack. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Toad absorbs any attack and sends it back to the opponent. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Toad releases mushroom spores if attacked.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Peach can alter Toad in one of two custom variants, provided they are unlocked first. Sleepy Toad puts opponents to sleep. Grumpy Toad immediately releases spores that deal less damage rather than being a counter move.
