Captain Toad (キノピオ隊長, Captain Kinopio) and Toadette (キノピコ, Kinopiko) appear as newcomers in Super Smash Bros. V . They were revealed in Captain Toad’s Reveal Trailer which was shown at the end of the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker 2 Direct on July 11, 2018

“Captain Toad is a character who first appears in Super Mario Galaxy. A red Toad dressed with an oversized backpack and a headlamp, he is the leader of the Toad Brigade, a group helping Mario in Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel Super Mario Galaxy 2; in these games, he is referred as Toad Brigade Captain. He subsequently appears in Super Mario 3D World as a playable character in special levels. <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:7pt;margin-bottom:8pt;">Captain Toad earned his own starring role in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which revolves around a tale of the hard-working Toad going out of his way to stop a massive bird from taking away both his treasure and good friend Toadette.”

“Toadette is a recurring Toad character in the Mario series. Originally introduced as a playable racing partner for Toad in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, she has since appeared in other games as a playable character and has played supporting roles in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, and Mario Party DS, and as a main character in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. While she has very similar traits to other characters, she is the most commonly recurring female Toad in the Mario series. Toadette has been shown to be on good terms with such characters as Princess Peach, Toad, Toadsworth, and Mario.”

Captain is confirmed to have no alternate costume. <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.558636301214041;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">For their appearances in SSBV, Captain Toad is voiced by Samantha Kelly just like in his games. Toadette will also be voiced by Samantha Kelly.



  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:6pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">With a full backpack becomes a very heavy character making it harder for him to be KO’d

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Has some good tools to his advantage

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Really strong special attacks

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Lots of kill power

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Good Recovery (Up-B)


  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:6pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Short jump height; which gets shorter the more backpack is filled

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Very lightweight and floaty with an empty backpack, making it easier to attack and KO

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Becomes slower as backpack is filled up

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Weak throws and ground attacks

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">Has to rely on up special to ascend platforms

  • <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:8pt;">Slow Walking speed


<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Captain Toad is a very interesting character. He comes packed with very strong special moves in his tool toss and headlight. He can jump in Smash 5 but his jump height is pretty low and gets lower as his backpack his filled. He has relatively weak ground attacks but makes up for it with powerful smash attacks. The more items in his backpack, the more heavier and harder to launch he becomes making him stick around a stock longer. His Aura Propeller alternate Up-Special can be used so you don’t have to worry about opponents taking advantage of the other propellers. There are 2 ways to pick up items to place in his backpack. One, his side tilt and two, his down taunt. With the correct spacing and utilizing of his tools he can be a force to be reckoned with. But his overall slow speed and inability to follow up in the air (attack in the air for that matter) may slow him down. This is a character that needs to be played with caution. Toadette is much faster than Captain Toad as she carries a smaller backpack; but she can only store 3 items and 5 items with the High-Capacity Backpack.


Ground Attacks

Name Damage Description
Neutral Attack 4% Headbutts rapidly. Can be used rapidly by quickly tapping A. Also has potential to trip.
Neutral Combo
Dash Attack 7% (Clean), 5% (Late) Bashes his head forward with arms going back.
Forward Tilt Pluck 4.2% Picks from the floor as if picking up an item. 33.3% of the time will pick up either a Turnip, a Super Gem, or a Coin and places in his backpack (animation isn’t too long). If he picks up and item the opponent is tripped along with the damage. Will not pick up anything if backpack is full.
Up Tilt 7.5% Waves his head upwards quickly from right to left.
Down Tilt 5% (close), 3% (med-far) Quick foot attack that occasionally trips.
Forward Smash 19%-12% Throws a Super Mushroom that travels a distance almost to the halfway point of final destination from the ledge. Gets weaker (both knockback and damage-wise) the farther it gets. Can be reflected as it is considered a projectile...and it comes back faster...and much, much more powerful...use with caution.
Up Smash 16% (clean), 12% (late/off) Similar to Up Tilt except being chargeable and doing much more damage and knockback (obviously). Also having more cooldown. Really good kill move.
Down Smash 11% (front), 13% (back) Spins around in a set position swinging a pickaxe.

Aerial Attacks

Name Damage Description
Neutral Aerial 7% Spins around.
Forward Aerial 11% Slams pickaxe forward
Back Aerial 12% Swings pickaxe behind him. KOs much later.
Up Aerial 11% Does a strong headbutt upward. Good KO move.
Down Aerial 13% (with all hits connecting) Does a drill kick downwards.

Grabs and Throws

Name Damage Description
Pummel 1.5% *Grabs with both hands, short range* Headbutts opponent.
Forward Throw 10% Throws opponent overhead similar to when he throws a turnip.
Back Throw 7% Twists before tossing opponent back. Good kill throw.
Up Throw 7% Tosses opponent upward.
Down Throw 8% Slams opponent into the ground.


Name Damage Description
Floor Attack (front) 5-8% Gets up swinging his backpack around. Stronger as backpack becomes more full.
Floor Attack (back) 5-8% Gets up swinging his backpack around. Stronger as backpack becomes more full.
Floor Attack (trip) 5-8% Gets up swinging his backpack around. Stronger as backpack becomes more full.
Edge Attack 7% Gets up and attacks with head.

Special Attacks

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Headlight 2%(tap)-18%(fully charged) While being charged, a yellow aura can be seen on the headlight. When fully charged, a large and poweful beam of light is fired off that can break shields while dealing the damage. It also kills the heavier characters at 120% making it a good kill move. At lower charges, it temporarily stuns enemies (similar to Mewtwo’s disable) and deals small damage.
Alternate 1 Slim Beam Headlight 12% A thinner ray of light with much more range, but less damage, knockback, and no stun effect. The charge time is much more faster and must be fully charged to fire it off which means no tapping.
Alternate 2 Reflect Headlight Large circular Ray of light which reflects projectiles. Can he be held for 8 seconds before needing a cool-off for about 15 seconds.
Side Special Tool Toss Turnip - 11%, Super Gem - 8%, Coin - 5% Throws the current selected tool out of his backpack. Can be reflected as it is a projectile. The turnip does the most damage has the weakest knockback. The Super Gem has the strongest knockback but is the slowest (also a good kill move). The coin is the fastest but the weakest in damage. The items travel about 75% final destination.
Alternate 1 Multi-Tool Toss Turnip - 11%, Super Gem - 8%, Coin - 5% Tosses the first 2 items in the roll. Pretty hard to hit both items but when you do it’s very rewarding.
Alternate 2 Heavy Tool Toss Turnip - 13%, Super Gem - 11%, Coin - 8% Tosses slightly larger tools that travel less farther but deal more damage. Also a much slower throwing animation than the regular Tool Toss.
Up Special Propeller Hat 4%(each hit) Captain Toad uses a propeller hat to travel vertically. The route can be controlled and the propeller does damage. You press B again to remove the propeller. When removed in midair Captain Toad is helpless during the fall as he flaps his hands in panic. The propeller travels for a maximum of 10 seconds.
Alternate 1 Safe Propeller Hat Captain Toad is covered by a blue aura and invincible while using the Aura Propeller hat but the propeller does not damage foes.
Alternate 2 Fast Propeller Hat 2%(each hit) A faster version of the Propeller Hat. The propeller hits do less damage.
Down Special Backpack Works in conjunction with the Side Special and Side Tilt. Tools plucked up with the side tilt are stored here and can be used as projectiles as the side special. You hold the input to go through your items which will be shown on your stock count (Similar to Little-Mac’s Power Meter). Whichever one it’s on pretty much decides the one thrown with the Side B. The more items in the backpack the more heavier and slower Captain Toad becomes. Also gravity is increased (Meaning you fall much more faster).
Alternate 1 High Capacity Backpack Can carry 2 extra items. When full makes Captain Toad much, much heavier than with the other 2 backpacks.
Alternate 2 Gem/Coin/Turnip Backpack Can only store either the gem, coin, or turnip (can be chosen which), meaning you will have to immediately toss any other item you pluck with the side tilt.
Final Smash Super Pickaxe 8%(each hit) Starts off with an animation of Captain Toad picking up a blue pickaxe from the ground. He tosses it up in the air and when he catches it he and the pickaxe glows blue as he hacks away with the pickaxe. It’s relatively easy to control and you can “jump” while using it. It also has really high knockback. Similar to the hammer item’s animation.

Reveal Trailer

Battlefield Trackers

The Reveal Trailer Starts off with Mario and Link being attacked by what appears to be Bowser, who is confirmed here. Apparenlty, Bowser appears to be overpowering both fighters. Then, as he's about to deliver the finishing blow to Mario while Link is down, he gets hit by what appears to be a pickaxe. As he turns around, he sees Captain Toad looking pretty angry, Toadette standing behind him, then comes the promo - "Captain Toad and Toadette track the Battlefield!". Bowser turns his attention to them then begins to walk at them. Captain Toad and Toadette appear ready as the camera zooms toward their faces.

Now comes the gameplay. The Music used in the gameplay portion is the. Captain Toad and Toadette are both shown double teaming Bowser using various regular and smash attacks. Captian Toad is shown plucking a Super Gem and tossing it. Various other attacks proceed to be shown, executed on other fighters. Then, it shows Toadette trying to jump but only a pathetic hop comes out, a reference to the animation played when you try to jump in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker . Mario and Captain Toad appear facing each other. It then shows Donkey Kong going for a down air offstage as Captain Toad uses his propeller hat to stop it sending DK back up. Toadette is shown pulling out a Super Mushroom from her backpack. Captain Toad is then shown stunning Fox, Pikachu, and the male Inkling with his Headlight. Then comes the Final Smash, Captain Toad throws out a forward smash and KOs Bowser with it. Bowser respawns then finishes Captain Toad of with a forward smash followed by a taunt. Then Captain Toad returns to use his final smash KOing Bowser yet again. He's then shown winking with a smile to end the trailer. In the post trailer Captain Toad and Toadette are both shown taunting with Mario.
