ok people im kick starting a new toad support thread lets face we all support both of them so they might as well have a join thread




now then toad/c. toad has got plenty of moveset potential as im sure my fellow supporters know hes had speed, strength, fire flowers, ice flowers, boomerang flowers, super picaxes, throwing turnips, shooting himself out of canons all great choices for moves he could swing around sport utensils suddenly drive around a kart or maybe even throw mario party dice

toad is a character with large moveset potential so let us discuss how that can be put in smash

moveset ideas
mine
combo: a few jabs with a royal guard spear
strong side: simple kick
strong up: headbutts with large hat
strong down: plant pluck (like villager's)

dash: slides across ground similar to when going down a slide in 3d world/TT
side smash: swings down pickax
up smash: swings pickax over head
down smash: strikes both sides with pickax

neutral air: flails a bit
forward air: spear jab
back air: p. plant attack
up air: hat jab
down air: diamond drop

grab: potted piranha plant
pummel: p. plant bites down on foe
forward throw: p. plant headbutts foe
back throw: p. plant throws them behind
up throw: spins foe round throw them up
down throw: drops foe toad hits them with pot

neutral special: item throw, generates a random item and throws it, a turnip, a diamond, a bomb, enemies from TT & WW
side special: mine cart dash, charges forward in a mine cart, works similar to jr's but can be turned around
up special: propeller spin, shoots upwards using the propeller suit
down special: luck cat slam, turns into a cat toad statue and slams downwards (like kirby's)

final smash: toad brigade, he jumps into a starshroom and flies off screen, then the entire toad brigade each piloting their own starshroom tear through the stage rapidly at random places flying towards the background

and how do they jump with that back pack? they've got a feather from super mario kart in there

Let's think, how can Captain Toad jump, without jumping himself? My best idea is a spring comes out his backpack, downwards and sends him skyward.

Maybe Captain Toad could pull out the Carrot (from Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins) to become Bunny Toad so he can jump.

Why not? Captain Toad already pulls out Turnips. Pulling out Carrots make sense too.

But he could also get the Frog Suit (from Super Mario Bros. 3) to become Frog Toad so he can jump and swim.

Oh, and I think Captain Toad 2 should be on Switch.

Re-release, sequel, I just want more of Captain Toad's adventures regardless.

And Toadette too. It was nice how they made her a secondary playable character.
It's nice that Toadette is playable in Captain Toad and Super Mario Run. I think Toad and Toadette should have been playable in New Super Mario Bros. games instead of Blue Toad and Yellow Toad.

I think Super Mario 3D World 2 should have a playable Toadette... and a playable Yoshi and a playable Birdo. This way, the game would have 2 plumbers, 2 princesses, 2 mushrooms, and 2 dinosaurs. Yes, I think Super Mario 3D World 2 should happen. :awesome:

Even better. Linear or not, I wouldn't mind if another follow up to 3D World were to happen.

Agreed. Toad and Toadette easily would have been better than the random Yellow and Blue Toads.

Heck, I'd take a Captain Toad re-release.
Maybe even a bundle with both games?

I third this. They could've given Toad his Captain oufit to differentiate him from the NPC Toads.

Maybe it would be nice if we got something like New Super Luigi U but with Captain Toad as the lead... call the game Super Toad Brigade or something.

Super Toad Brigade could be like New Super Mario Bros. games but all the playable characters are Toads. Captain, Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Purple, and Toadette all band together to save Mario, Luigi, and Peach from Bowser.

I wonder if Sakurai doesn't see Toad's moveset potential? I mean, prior to Captain Toad's debut as a playable character, Toad's abilities were mostly same as Mario and Luigi's (aside from sport games).

Still, if this is the case, Treasure Tracker should definitely make him realise Toad's potential.

Hello! I've never been on your support-list before, but I've always felt that having Toad act as a shield for Peach in a recycled counter move was a very big missed opportunity.

He was always "one of the gang", right alongside Mario, Luigi, and Peach, back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as a result of Super Mario Bros. 2, after all!

Please add me! :grin:

I have some ideas what moves Toad / Captain Toad could have in Smash.

Dash Attack: Pickax
This move is similar to Luigi's dash attack where instead of swinging his arms around like Luigi does, Toad swings his pickax around.

Side Smash: Bomb Kick
Toad places a bomb in front of him and kicks it. The distance the bomb travels depends on how long the player charges the move. This move is based on Wario's Woods.

Up Smash: Somersault Kick
Toad squats and charges then he jumps high and does a somersault kick (like Guile's Flash Kick). The height of Toad's jump depends on how long the player charges the move. This move is based on charged jump animations in Super Mario Advance.

Down Smash: Poison Spores
Toad remembers how it was like to be Peach's bodyguard in past Smash games. Toad scatters poison spores around him.

B: Iceball
Mario throws red fireballs. Luigi throws green fireballs. Dr. Mario throws pills. Toad throws iceballs. Iceballs bounce like Mario's red fireballs but they freeze opponents like Lucas's PK Freeze.

Side+B: Double Cherry Pass
This move works similarly to Greninja's Shadow Sneak but Toad sends out a Toad clone instead of a shadow... and the Toad clone disappears when he tackles the opponent or when the player lets go of the B button.

Up+B: Propeller Toad
Toad propels very high while the blades on the propeller helmet hits opponents. Toad can descend slowly like Peach or speed the descent by pressing Down+A to drill down like Kirby's Aerial Down+A. It works just like it does in New Super Mario Bros. games.

Down+B: Turnip
It's the same as Peach's Vegetable move but Toad pulls turnips faster than Peach does just like in Super Mario Bros. 2.

Final Smash: Turnip Cannon
Toad gets in the turnip cannon and starts shooting turnips at wherever the aiming cursor is at. The player can control the aiming cursor with the control stick and shoot turnips with a button.

Those are really good ideas. In addition to those, I think the headlamp could be used in the moveset in some way, as well.

im sure im not the only who's suggested smacking people with that headlamp

I really would love SSB5 to have the following stages:

Super Bell Hill
Wario's Woods
Kingdom II (past stage from Melee)
super bell hill would be a fun stage
