Toffee is the main antagonist of Star vs. the Forces of Evil in the second half of Season One.
Toffee is a recent member of Ludo's army and an "evil efficiency expert" who appears to have ulterior motives. He becomes the leader of the army after usurping the position from Ludo in "Marco Grows a Beard".
Toffee is shown to be much more intelligent than any member of Ludo's army and even Ludo himself. He is great at plotting schemes and knows how to set them in motion effectively. He often appears quite calm and collected, a facade that rarely slips (such as when he insulted Buff Frog under his breath, or when he revealed his true motives to Star). He is also very courteous to Marco when he is holding him hostage, offering him food, and even unlocking his restraints.
He is a blue-skinned reptilian creature with slicked-back dark purple hair, and yellow eyes. He wears a black suit and red tie. One of his right-hand fingers has been cut off.
Powers and abilities
- Intellect: Toffee possesses a genius-level intellect and a cunning mind. He is skilled in various technologies and has a working knowledge of magic, particularly that of the Butterfly family.
- Regeneration: Toffee is able to quickly regenerate lost body parts, such as his arm.
- Immortality: Toffee has not aged from the time of his fight with Moon.
Role in the series
Toffee first appears in "Fortune Cookies" where he gets himself hired as Ludo's "evil efficiency expert." Toffee creates a robotic spy device in "Mewnipendance Day" that takes over Buff Frog's duties. He also orchestrates Buff Frog's dismissal from Ludo's services.
In "Marco Grows a Beard," Toffee accompanies Ludo's army to Earth in order to claim Star Butterfly's wand. While navigating Marco Diaz's beard, he gives the unnamed giraffe monster a glass of water when he says that he is dehydrated. After Ludo's army is repelled by Star, Toffee convinces Ludo's army to renounce Ludo as their leader, leading to Ludo being kicked out and Toffee taking over his castle.
In "Storm the Castle", Toffee has Marco kidnapped and placed in an impenetrable glass box. Though Toffee is a courteous host, Marco refuses his hospitality, even when Toffee offers him a sandwich. When Star, Ludo, and Buff Frog attack the castle, Toffee gets his arm blasted off before Star manages to destroy the case, only for it to rebuild itself. Before Star could try again, Toffee, as his arm grows back, tells her that the case is twice as strong now, and he causes the glass box to start crushing Marco. Star offers her wand to Toffee in exchange for Marco's freedom, but Toffee instead commands her to destroy the wand with the Whispering Spell her mother taught her as a child. After Star complies, she jumps into the glass box with Marco as the wand begins to self-destruct. Before the wand explodes and destroys Ludo's castle, Toffee grins as if expecting it.
In "Ludo in the Wild", Ludo finds a dark magic wand made from the right half of Star's wand and Toffee's skeletal hand. Which eh uses from that point on. The wand also speaks to him giving him advise.
It is revealed in "Into the Wand" that Toffee was first defeated in battle by Queen Butterfly, who also severed his right middle finger. Star discovers Toffee's missing finger inside her magic wand, which was contaminating the spells she cast. With Glossaryck's help, Star removed it from her wand and tossed it away in her bedroom closet.
In "Page Turner", when trying to find the source of magic being siphoned throughout the universe, an image of Toffee appears.
- At the end of "Fortune Cookies," Star's fortune says "A great evil has been unleashed." Toffee is heavily hinted to be this "great evil."
- In addition, Toffee says that Ludo wasn't the first monster to fall victim to Star's family's magic, suggesting that he has history with them. This is confirmed in the episode "Into The Wand" where it is revealed that his finger was severed by Moon Butterfly's "darkest spell." When Star grabs Toffee's finger, images of her ancestor Eclipse are shown along with images of Toffee hinting a relation between the two.
- In the "Fortune Cookies" promotional image, Toffee is yellowish-brown, has no hair, and wears no shirt under his suit, which could be his initial design.
- He has a habit of petting the fly monster.
- Ludo's wand in Season Two, which is a skeletal arm with four fingers, has been confirmed by Adam McArthur to be Toffee's remains.
- On Queen Moon's tapestry, Toffee lacks a tail.
