The only reason he can't jump is because his backpack is too heavy. One of his attacks could be throwing it at opponents and then he could jump.

And I've been thinking of a moveset for him.

Entrance: Minecart.
Standard attack: Punches.
Neutral special: Turnip throw.
Side special: Super Pickaxe.
Up special: Clear pipe.
Down special: Taking off the backpack (and it can be thrown).
Final Smash: Flying the Starshroom around the stage.

Also if the backpack gets thrown off of the stage, it will automatically respawn on Captain Toad's back.

I could see something like this.. the up special stands out to me, I like that a lot.

But for his normals, he'd have to do a lot more than punches. His arms are short. I could see a lot of headbutts, maybe an up tilt similar to Peach's in Melee and the use of tools to keep him creative. Most characters added in Smash 4 had some slight gimmicks to play around with to make them stand out in a sea of 50-some fighters. Captain Toad in a potential Smash 5 would be no different in my mind.

I always imagined that he could use his pickaxe as a helicopter somehow.
Not being able to think of a signature is fine, but having a condescending and self-aware signature about that is not good.

Link normally can't jump, Snake can't jump, none of the Fire Emblem characters jump in their games, didn't stop them.

But it's still possible for them to jump. Captain Toad can't because his backpack is too heavy.

Then give him a lighter backpack, why does it matter?

Or even better don't even have Captain Toad. Normal Toad would be better anyways.
