Toadbert, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Toadbert is a Toad who appears as a supporting character in the Mario & Luigi series, debuting in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. He seems to be good friends with Toadiko and has a tendency to say "by boogity" very often. He is distinguished by his blue mushroom cap with white spots, yellow tie, and thick glasses.

Toadbert appears to be on very good terms with Mario and Luigi, as seen by the help that he had provided for them throughout the series (from providing them with hints to almost fighting alongside them in a battle against Sunnycide).

Toadbert first appears in the game's intro cutscene, in which he and Toadiko accompany Princess Peach in Professor E. Gadd's time machine. The three travel back in time to the Mushroom Kingdom from the past.

The three arrive at the beginning of the Shroob's attack of Peach's Castle, where they are confronted by Elder Princess Shroob and Princess Shroob. While Peach is able to trap the Elder Princess Shroob in the Cobalt Star, she is soon captured by the other princess. Toadbert along with Toadiko however manage to escape from the castle by this point.

Toadbert first meets the Mario Bros. in Yoob's belly where he is with some eggs. When Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi come up to him he does not remember a thing about what had happened before. He just says that he remembers that he drew a drawing before he lost his memory and he remembers nothing. He also says that the picture must have made him forget stuff, which is actually a drawing of what he drew during the fight. When Mario, Luigi, and the baby Bros. enter into the next chamber they encounter Sunnycide, the monster that is creating the eggs. Toadbert wanting to help the heroes, rushes into the scene in order to assist the bros. in their battle. Unfortunately as Toadbert turns around to speak with the heroes, he is attacked by Sunnycide who had thrown one of the large eggs at him causing Toadbert to fall unconscious.

After escaping from the insides of Yoob's Belly, he stays in Yoshi's Island for most of the game. As the Mario Bros. leave the island, Toadbert himself thanks the Bros. for their help and even tells the Yoshis that it was the Mario Bros. who had rescued them, and not Baby Bowser. After the Bros. and Kylie Koopa are ejected from the Shroob Mother Ship, Kylie lands on Toadbert's head, causing him to regain his memories.

Toadbert, along with Kylie, later use Lakitu Travel to arrive at Star Shrine to meet with the brothers, where Toadbert reveals to the group that he has the fifth shard of the Cobalt Star. When he sees the Cobalt Star in Mario and Luigi's possession, he runs away and takes his shard deeper into the Star Shrine.

The Bros. eventually find Toadbert collapsed on the ground, where he tells Mario to rub the dirt off of his Drawing, revealing that there are two Shroob princesses. Before he can explain the events that happened at Peach's Castle, the group is attacked by the Elder Shrooboid, who turns Toadbert into a Shroob mushroom. He remains as such until the end of the game, when he is reverted back to normal using baby's tears.

Toadbert makes a reappearance in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its 3DS remake. He first appears at Peach's Castle where he along with Mario, Luigi, Starlow, Peach, Toadsworth and several other Toads were discussing about the blorbs, a recent disease in the Mushroom Kingdom that is causing the Toads to inflate many times their size and roll around uncomfortably. However, midway through their discussion, Bowser arrives to kidnap the princess.

After Mario defeats Bowser, it is revealed that Toadbert is one of the only members from the meeting who had not left. The group discusses what to do, with Toadbert suggesting stopping the meeting. Toadsworth refuses, though, and suggests for the group to go find the other members. It is then that Bowser re-enters the castle, and Toadbert, along with the rest of the group, are sucked into Bowser's body.

After being found and freed in Nerve Cluster, Toadbert helps the Mario Bros. by scouting out areas of Bowser's body and often appears to instruct the brothers about the functions in various areas. He also has a hint booth in Toad Square. He also appears to be on good terms with Toadsworth, as the two can be seen accompanying the bros. in several areas throughout Bowser's body. An example is that when the Mario bros. are healing Bowser's back in the Lumbar Nook, Toadbert comes and receives a cup of tea from Toadsworth.

In the ending of the game, Toadbert along with Mario, Luigi, Starlow, Peach, Toadsworth and several other Toads can be seen celebrating happily in front of a confused yet furious Bowser. When Bowser discovers that Mario, Luigi and the others were inside his body the whole time, he snaps and uses his fire breath, causing most of the Toads, including Toadbert, to flee.
