Toadofsky.

Toadofsky is a famous Toad composer who works in Melody Bay, a small area connected to Tadpole Pond. During the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Toadofsky has "composer's block"; he is trying to create a brand new symphony, has had no inspiration to work from. Additionally, if he does not come up with a song and make some money soon, he will have to compose video game music for games starring a hedgehog.[1] As Mario travels the world, he picks up a few local melodies. If Mario returns to Tadpole Pond, he can play these melodies to Toadofsky as inspiration by leaping on the tadpoles in certain positions, the pond resembling a staff. As a reward, Toadofsky will give Mario special membership cards used to purchase special items at the Tadpole Pond Item Shop, the Juice Bar. After giving him the three melodies, Toadofsky allows Mario to compose the last quarter of the symphony himself. During the ending, Toadofsky is seen putting on a concert with Frogfucius attending it.

Toadofsky, called Toadofski, appeared in Mario and the Incredible Rescue. He gives Mario, Luigi and Toad one of the six Mushrooms in exchange for Mario composing a new song. Mario titled his new composition, "Falling Down a Waterfall".

Trivia[edit]

  • Toadofsky's name is a pun on the name of famous Russian composers Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky or Boris Tchaikovsky.
