A Toad in the Desert is a jolly Toad composer who lives in Dry Dry Outpost in Paper Mario. Despite living in Dry Dry Outpost, he is the only Toad resident in said town who is not a Dryite. He is good at writing music, but not so good at writing the Lyrics. Later in the events of Chapter 3 in the game, Master Poet has attempted to write the Lyrics for Pop Diva to make her sing again after Princess Peach is kidnapped by Bowser. When he is done, he realizes that he needs a composer to write the song with music keys. Master Poet begs to Mario to find the composer in the Mushroom Kingdom as he gives the Lyrics to him. When Mario gives the item to the Toad in the Desert, he is strongly amazed by Master Poet's work; he aptly writes in music keys which turn the Lyrics into the Melody. He warns Mario that this song is only for an expert to sing; only Pop Diva can only sing the Melody to recover her lost voice.
