The Toad Captain is a pirate Toad that appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash. He wears a pirate hat and wields a cutlass. He and his crew admire the Legendary Captain, and they own the ship he used to get to Fortune Island.
When Mario first enters the Violet Passage, the ship is attacked by a troupe of mischievous Shy Guys. The Toad Captain becomes stuck out in the colorless sea on a barrel. His crew tells Mario to save him, although Huey says that he and Mario need to collect a blue Big Paint Star to repaint the entire sea. When Mario and Huey repaints the sea after collecting the blue Big Paint Star at Fort Cobalt, the Toad Captain can be seen riding the barrel back to his ship.
When Mario returns to the Violet Passage, the Toad Captain thanks him for saving him. He tells them that he and his crew are preparing to voyage to Fortune Island to get treasure. He tells Mario that the only way to reach the island is by crossing the Lost Sea, which they do not know how to cross. When Mario finds the Journal Entries that tell how to cross the Lost Sea, the Toad Captain tells Mario and Huey that they were written by the Legendary Captain, and that he had been searching for them. He then decides to set sail, though there is no wind. Mario must use the Fan to make the ship move.
The Toad Captain begins singing, though he is interrupted by a crew member saying that there is a hole in the ship. He tells Mario to check it out, and then they set sail again once Mario tells him that it is under control. When they reach the Lost Sea, the Toad Captain teaches Mario how to use the cannons on the ship. When his crew puts up a torn flag on the ship, he tells Mario to take it down or fix it, say ain't that it makes them look like "thrift-shop pirates."

The Toad Captain decides to make land at the island, despite Huey wanting to go into the whirlpool to get a Mini Paint Star. When he is on land, he and his crew head over to a broken bridge, saying that they will try to find a way across. When Mario fixes the bridge in the parallel world, the Toad Captain goes to the vortex. After Mario stops the vortex in the parallel world, the Toad Captain believes that he made it go away by making a wish.
When they leave Vortex Island, they are stopped by a large wall of darkness, so they make land on Lighthouse Island to turn the lighthouse on. The Toad Captain has Mario go into the lighthouse before him. When Mario fixes the lighthouse, the mistake the Lighthouse Keeper's yells to be cries for help, so he goes to rescue Mario. They go back to the ship when they find that Mario is fine. On the ship, the Toad Captain spots Fortune Island in the distance.
When they reach Fortune Island, the Toad Captain's crew notices that he sounds nervous, and they tell him to not give up. He decides that he should not be scared, and decides to check out the island. He discovers that the entrance to the cave is blocked by water, and tells Mario to find a way inside. When Mario opens up a second entrance, the Toad Captain tells him to check it out for him. He will set up his crew as a ladder so that Mario can exit the cave easier.
When the Legendary Captain follows Mario out of the parallel world, he will notice the Toad Captain. The Toad Captain recognizes the Legendary Captain, and they begin to talk to each other. The Legendary Captain tells the Toad Captain that he lost all of his memories, and has no idea why he is on Fortune Island.
