Toad-al control

There are some major perks to finding Toads. The more Toads there are in the audience when you battle, the better their assistance will be if you pay them for it. Additionally, finding all of the hidden Toads is one of the things you need to do if you want to unlock The Origami King's secret ending.

Good luck with your Toad hunt! May you find all of the Toads without any hassle.
