Team Toad is a well-known team throughout the Battlebots community. The team was lead by Michael Mauldin and has build many bots, some of which are still competing today. They had good success, and they have built many bots that competed both in and out of Battlebots. Most of the robots are based on winter terminology and the robots themselves had been used as winter and/or snow equipment The team had stopped competing after RoboGames 2011 with Avalanche and ComBots 2011 with Blizzard but returned to robot combat in 2014 with Polar Vortex and have continued to compete at RoboGames as of 2017. Middleweight Lionheart also fought at the 2017 RoboGames.

The Team Toad sticker appeared on most robots in Season 3.0 and 4.0. It even made appearances on Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors and various well-known landmarks. It continues to be on robots during various competitions to this day.

Team Toad also competed in the second episode of the World Series special aired as a part of the tenth series of Robot Wars.

Mauldin returned to Battlebots with an upgraded version of Polar Vortex called Hypothermia. The team brought a new robot to BattleBots 2019 named Texas Twister.
