      In this game, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad must save Dreamland, known as Subcon, from villain Wart. This is the SNES version, included in Super Mario All-Stars cartridge with enhancements. The Chinese use toad skin as a cure for heart diseases, and several drugs use bufotenine as a stimulant in the heart. Once you get a wart, they are hard to get rid of. Freezing the warts away with a liquid chemical, using antibiotics from the doctor, and slicing and dicing them away are options. However the most painless way is just to wait.

    This book is more lighthearted and joyous than the sections that follow in "The Once & Future King," which are available on Audible as "The Witch in the Wood" and "The Ill-Made Knight." Although this book and the others are meant to go together as an epic work, "The Sword in the Stone" can easily stand alone as an enjoyable novel in its own right.   The rest of the warts were just as obliging, and by the time I was done, the wart location looked a bit like the skin of that super creepy toad that hatches babies out of her back, after all the micro-toads have swum off. The skin under the removed wart cores was pink and thin but nothing bled or caused Oliver pain.

Those bumps appear look sort of like warts, so a myth developed that toads could cause warts. The thing about that myth is that.

“The Toad” vents his frustrations onto his students, who in turn taunt his son. Where did this toad-ally untrue myth get its start.

No one knows for sure, but it's fairly easy to guess. Many species of toads have rough bumps on their skin. People often think they look like warts and fear they could be contagious, if touched. There's even a type of toad that was named Warty Toad in English, the Rhinella spinulosa species.

Eventually the billions of toads will die out and the cane toad will become a bad memory in Australia. Despite the threat the can­e toad poses to Australia's environment, the Aussies can rest easy that they won't also cause an outbreak of warts. That's because the cane toad (or any toad, for that matter) isn't capable of producing warts.

Wart is the primary antagonist in the Super Mario Advance book, where he takes over Subcon yet again. After defeating his underlings, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Peach confront him, but Wart effortlessly captures them all with his bubbles, safe for Peach, who barely manages to beat him by pelting the toad with : Mamu (Japanese name).
