Toadiko is a pink-capped Toad and one of Princess Peach's attendants. She bears a striking resemblance to Toadette. Her name includes "-ko," which is often seen in girls' names in Japan.

In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Toadiko accompanies Peach on her visit to the Mushroom Kingdom of the past in Professor E. Gadd's Time Machine. Unfortunately, Toadiko, Peach and Toadbert visit during the Shroob invasion of the kingdom and are kidnapped by the evil Shroobs. When the princess is captured by Princess Shroob, Toadiko and Toadbert both escape but separate at some point for unknown reasons. While Peach is imprisoned, Toadiko is sent to Toadwood Forest and strapped to a vim-draining tree. When Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi arrive in Toadwood Forest, Toadiko, with little stamina left, manages to reveal to them that the Shroobs have captured Peach, and they are draining the vim from Toads to use as fuel for their saucers.

The Shroobs overhear the conversation. As such, a few saucers arrive and shoot an energy blast at Toadiko, turning her into a Shroob mushroom. Toadiko's last words to the Mario brothers are "Gather... shards...", referring to Cobalt Star shards. At the end of the game, when E. Gadd uses the Hydrogush to send the baby tears into the past to destroy all of the Shroob mushrooms, she is turned back to normal.
