"That particular breed began as a joke, but had multiplied into an epidemic. Someone lost their wand over that one.


―Narration, in Artemis Fowl (book)
Swear Toads are a mutation of the normal tunnel toad. They are mentioned several times in the Artemis Fowl series. They are called swear toads because all they can say are swear words. They live in tunnels and can be vicious, as Holly Short learns when one bites her on the bum. Swear toad venom causes severe swelling and pain.


Swear toads are the result of a spell cast by Warlock college graduates. Being college graduates, they made the toads only able to say swear words.
