Toshiko Orbs, or TO's, are one of the main gameplay mechanics of Toshiko Crash-Up. They are gained by damaging opponents. Different attacks gain the user different numbers of TO's. Gaining 750 TO's allows the user to use their Crash-Attack, an immensely powerful attack that can score several kills, depending on the Crash-Attack and the user's skill.

Being hit by a stage hazard or an item will cause you to lose TO's in the form of glowing white spheres, which can be picked up by touching them. TO spheres can also be knocked out of a player if they are thrown by another player.
