Incredibly egotistical, Barnaby only cares about himself and usually disregards the feelings of others. He believes frogs are better than toads in every way, and never hesitates to let it be known. When he encounters the Toad Patrol, he constantly makes fun of them, mocking the way they speak and even their very nature. However, Barnaby's views on toads drastically change after the Toad Patrol save him from a wandering dog. This turn of events pushes the frog to befriend the toadlets despite a rocky start. He even returns the favour later on in the series by saving them from Erebus.
