Paper Toads by DerekminyA Paper Toads by DerekminyA
Citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom and other locations, Toads possess incredibly squishy caps. And...that's really it, species wise.

Toads have appeared in many Super Mario Bros. games (though World is not among them, interestingly). In the Paper Mario series... A great variety of Toads appeared in the first two games, while a single one appears in Super Paper Mario.
...I don't think I need to say what happened in the eighth gen games, other than "a glaring lack of research, combined with a staggering decrease in age & gender variety, topped by the stripping of identity".
In the DMZ timeline, though, this is migitated, as the Recuts significantly cut down on the Toads and diversify the ones that remain, while Wonder Journey only features one or two unique Toad characters for the main story. They were also present in Relic Hunter to a degree. In addition, while only Toadette will appear in the upcoming Fruit Shake topic, there will be a detailed story explanation for the lack of Toads in the story's Frutta Archipelago region.

I mostly just made this spritesheet for Paper Mario fans not annoyed by the Toads to assist them with their own endeavors.

EDIT: Dresses added to Toadettes and Toad girls. Special thanks to felinewithin (felinewithin.deviantart.com/) for pointing this out.

I think the Toads in more recent Mario games are all male since they're supposed to be genderless.

Yeah- I think I read somewhere one of the producers saying that too. It's still a shame we lost the girls and kids, though.

Think Nintendo decided to make the Toads in this picture more unique due for fan demand?

It's within the realm of possibility. The timing is perfect, after all.

On the other hand, it might be a coincidence, or it could have been drawn by someone associated with the original Paper Mario trilogy's developers.

Possibly, also how's the Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga remake treating you? Does it prove that Mario RPG characters arn't dead and still useable?

The SSS remake looks promising, though it's saddening how it's 2D only.
On that second point, at least it shows AlphaDream cares about it's identity.

Hey, female Toads wear dresses! Are you sure you didn't just alter the head and not the body?!

Oops. I mostly didn't give them a dress to differentiate them from the original Toadette, but you have a point. I'll update this sheet with a dress for the Toadettes and Toad girls.
