Toad men are humanoid versions of the common toad and a species of unremarkable animal people. They currently cannot be encountered in-game due to a bug which prevents variations on pond-spawning vermin from being placed in the world.

If they were encounterable, however, they would be a bit over half the size of dwarves when adults and spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals, posing no threat to dwarves unless provoked. Like other savage animal people, toad men would occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who could appear in your fortress as visitors, or historical figures, or be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like toad men for their beauty.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

The absence of toad men has formed much speculation amongst civilizations. The most notable one involves a group of three intergalactic toad men who leap from planet to planet to defeat a "dark queen", whom had kidnapped all of the other toad men of the world.
