Toads (ヒキガエル, hikigaeru) are a group of amphibians in the Bufonidae family. A group of toads would be called 'knot' (A knot of frogs). In appearance, toads usually have leathery brownish skin. They have short legs and wart-like parotoid glands.
Only one toad has been known to appear in Touhou. It is a giant toad living in the Giant Toad's Pond, named after the toad itself. The giant toad appears in Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red trying to punish Cirno for freezing frogs.
