    Has it ever been comfirmed wether or not Toad (from Super Mario) is a guy? I know that his/her people have genders, but Toad itself, is he a he or a she? I thought it was a she in Mario Kart, but then in the cartoon he is very masculine. I'll die better knowing the answer to this.

    He is a He, and I am pretty sure he is referred to a he in various media, including games and the older cartoons. The only real transvestite is Birdo.

    Well, according to Chad Warden Toad is Asian. Not sure if he thinks Toad is a guy or girl though.

    "Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio (キノピオ, Kinopio?), is a humanoid mushroom that is both a single character and the collective name of the "Mushroom People" found in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Toad species first appeared in Super Mario Bros. as seven guards that serve Princess Peach, called Mushroom Retainers. In games prior to Paper Mario, which features an entire race of Toad inhabiting Toad Town, the capital of the Mushroom Kingdom, manuals referred to them as Mushroom People, but they were always referred to as Kinopio in Japan.

    Toad first appears as a single character in Super Mario Bros. 2 as one of the four playable characters. He is stated to be the chief guard of the Mushroom Retainers. The character then goes on to star in Wario's Woods, and appear in the Mario Kart series and various sports games. Toad also makes a brief appearance in Super Smash Bros Melee, in which he can be seen running back and forth frantically in the first stage of adventure mode. He is also one of Princess Peach's attacks in which she throws Toad in front of herself to take the blow of a foe's attack; this attack of Peach's will be reused in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In other games, he acts as an instructor, such as in the earlier Mario Party games, and helps guide characters in other games. As with the games, Toad plays a major supporting character in other forms of media starring Mario. He usually tags along with Mario in the various cartoons and comics as a sidekick.

    Toad's voice is first heard in Mario Kart 64, which features actor Isaac Marshall. By the advent of the GameCube, Jen Taylor has continued to provide the voice of Toad until 2005, when Kelsey Hutchison took over for games such as Super Mario Strikers. Recently, Nicaole Mills voiced him in Mario Party 8.

    In the Super Mario Bros. live-action film, Toad (portrayed by Mojo Nixon) was reimagined as a street musician and one of the poor inhabitants of Dinohattan, all of whom were descended from dinosaurs; unhappy with King Koopa's rule, Toad was placed under arrest by King Koopa's police force for singing "anti-Koopa songs" and placed in custody, where he befriends Mario and Luigi. Toad is later forcibly devolved into a Goomba, but apparently retains his humanity, as evidenced by his kindness towards Princess Daisy and the fact that he aids Mario and Luigi, giving them the devolution gun that is ultimately used to end the threat of King Koopa."

    Thanks Wiki.


    Short answer is. He's a guy. There's never been any indication in the games he's a girl. Even in the Mario cartoons he's always been a guy. He's only ever been voiced by male actors and in the Mario movie it was a dude who played him.

    Because the word "Toad" is in the title of this thread, I figured I have to post as well, and with a really old picture I made back when Gamecube was new:
