Strategy[edit | edit source]
A strong early-game card, as it trades well on top of further hurting your enemies' board once it dies. This card is a strictly superior version of Bloodfen Raptor, offering its useful Deathrattle in addition to the Raptor's stats and Beast type.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
Lore[edit | edit source]
Huge Toads are toad critters found in Hillsbrad Foothills, Swamp of Sorrows, Twilight Highlands and Zul'Drak. Their Pet Journal description simply reads, "This is a huge toad." However, despite their name these toads are still far smaller than the toad depicted in this card, suggesting that the connection may be in name only.
Hearthstone's Huge Toad is truly huge - the regular-sized toad at the bottom right of the card contrasting nicely with the other's massive form. Clearly the toad is happy to gobble anything it can fit in its mouth - which in this case is a quite a lot - attested to by the booted leg sticking out of its mouth.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This minion is named after a friend of Ben Brode, Hugh Tod, who worked in Blizzard quality assurance at the same time that Brode did, and whose online name was "Huge Toad". When the designers decided they wanted to add a 'huge toad' to the adventure, they therefore named it simply "Huge Toad" in honour of Tod. Brode states that he believes the Huge Toads in World of Warcraft to also be named after Tod.
- The golden version of this card reveals the leg sticking out of the toad's mouth to be attached to a male gnome, who is apparently still alive and struggling to break free.
