Is that mushroom a hat or part of Toad’s head? Nintendo developer clarifies.


Yoshiaki Koizumi, the developer behind Super Mario Odyssey, did a video Q&A in which he confirmed that Toad is not wearing a hat.

That mushroom is part of his head, Koizumi confirmed.

But fans quickly pointed out that in the 1980s TV series, Toad took his hat/head off.

So… where does that leave us?

Yoshiaki Koizumi was also asked why Mario has nipples but no belly button. He was caught off guard, and said he wasn’t sure why.
