American toad - One of the best insect pest controls around. I keep ground level water features and toad houses in my gardens. A toad house can be as simple as a broken clay pot or as fancy as a faerie castle, but they must be open on the bottom so the toad can dig into the soil to cool off.
Jiraiya (自来也, Jiraiya) was one of Konohagakure's legendary Sannin. He was known as the Toad Sage (蝦蟇仙人, Gama Sennin) because of his special affinity for toads. Famed as a hermit and pervert of stupendous skill, Jiraiya travelled the world in search of knowledge that would help his friends, his series of adult novels, and, ultimately, the world in its entirety.
