Causes of RAGEEdit
In Super Mario Bros. from the 1st Castle to the 7th one, instead of Princess Peach, the player will be greeted by Toads who says: "Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle!". If he/she is playing Super Mario Bros. for the first time, he will probably hate Toad from this point on.
In later Mario games though, Toad is no longer used in this manner and the excuse for the princess's absence in the castle is mostly due to a villain running off with her (i.e, Bowser Jr. in New Super Mario Bros. Wii). However, Toad is still notorious for his role in the original Super Mario Bros.
- In Super Mario Bros. 3, the ending makes a reference to this scene, as Princess Peach (back then, known as Princess Toadstool), upon her rescue, says; "Thank you. But our Princess is in another castle! ...Just kidding! Ha ha ha! Bye bye."
- These seven Toads are members of the Mushroom Retainers.
