Toodles, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Toodles is a wealthy Toad who lives in the ritzy neighborhood of Poshley Heights in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Toodles' name might be a pun of "toodles", another way to say goodbye stereotypically associated with posh or wealthy people, especially women.

She likes to flaunt her wealth by wearing expensive fur dresses and luxurious jewelry. It is unknown how Toodles amassed her vast fortune; however, the game indicates that she is a gold digger, using her physical attractiveness to leech off the wealth of men. In fact, when Mario first met Toodles, she was standing in the lobby of the Glitz Pit, looking for the champion so that she could flirt with him when he arrived, even ignoring Mario as she waited. However, once Mario claimed the title for himself, Toodles's flirtatious advances shifted as well.

Later, Mario and his team run into Toodles on the Excess Express during their quest for the Garnet Star. After her stay in Glitzville, Toodles decided to return to her home in Poshley Heights via the luxury locomotive. During the three-day trip back home, her Gold Ring is stolen by Doopliss (disguised as Zip Toad). The Shadow Sirens planned to use the ring, as well as the Excess Express waitress's Shell Earrings and the Nitro Honey Syrup from the businessman's briefcase to bomb the train and fulfill the "sticky, yummy doom" Mario had been warned of in an effort to prevent the team from reaching the Star. Mario and his team later catch Doopliss and return the ring. Unfortunately, later during the trip, she, along with the other passengers, were absorbed into the Smorg monster that attacked the train. Eventually, Mario and his allies defeated the Smorg and saved the wealthy Toad, allowing her to arrive safely in Poshley Heights.

When the player battles the Shadow Queen, Toodles cheers for Mario, revealing to Pennington that the player is Mario, not Luigi.

Apparently, Toodles is friends with Jolene, the current manager of the Glitz Pit. In her Trouble Center trouble, Toodles asks for Mario to get back the Wrestling Mag that she loaned to Jolene.
