I blame Naruto. It's kind of been impossible to talk about classical ninja myths after they become associated with a popular anime, so it hasn't been on my mind lately. Still, I'm kind of surprised that this whole time, I never thought to associate the ninja frog with the legendary ninja who could transform into a frog.

Whenever someone says Jiraiya, I think of Yosuke's Persona.

Oh yeah, his Shadow looks like a frog and the head of his Persona looks like a frog.

And his Persona's name is Jiraiya.

And now thanks to this topic, I finally understand why Yosuke's Persona looks the way it does. Thanks.
Don't get hit and hit it until it dies, in that order.
Kill it, carve it, wear it, repeat it.
