Dr. Toadley is a Toad character first appearing in the game Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story as a support character with extended knowledge about the entirety of the Mushroom Kingdom thanks to his crystal ball.


Dr. Toadley's origins are unknown, although he appears to have some sort of mystic and/or medical training that enables him to act as a Doctor, both in name and in practice. In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, he is one of the primary Toads consulted by Princess Peach when an outbreak occurs in her kingdom, establishing him as well-known and reliable; he is also shown attempting to treat Toads affected by the ailment, resulting in him being unable to directly attend. Later on in the game he assists the brothers in their quest using his crystal ball, showing that he has the power of prescience in addition to simple medical training. He also operates his own clinic, the Toadley Clinic, assisted by his intern and pet.

Notably, Toadley reappears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions in a unique role; rather than working at the nearby hospital within the Little Fungitown Embassy, he instead acts as a hypnotist, primarily assisting Luigi. The local townsfolk refer to him as "psycho" and generally act as if he was senile; this, combined with his odd mannerisms such as attempting to hypnotize himself and his bizarre vocal tics, indicates that he has perhaps lost some of his mental faculty.

Dr. Toadley assisting the Mario brothers in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Dr. Toadley's debut appearance was in Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story as a minor protagonist. In the game, he asked Mario to collect the three Star Cures, so the Doctor could one Miracle Cure out of them curing the Blorbs, a disease that threatened Toad citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom by making them swell up. After he combined the three star cures and made the miracle cure, he had no more time to help Mario and co. for the rest of the game due to the fact that he had to help cure the patients.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

In the remake of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Dr. Toadley replaces Psycho Kamek as the character in Little Fungitown who assists Luigi by hypnotizing him into believing that he is his brother, Mario. Because his lines are shared with the character he replaces, he appears more erratic and senile, even attempting to hypnotize himself and to hypnotize a Toad into believing that they are a Toad.
