Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Mother 3 is the long-awaited sequel to EarthBound and the third (and final) entry in Shigesato Itoi's Mother franchise; it continues the tradition of weird and quirky writing and gameplay which features deft employment of Mood Whiplash in its artistic story. Like prior games, Mother 3 centers on a young boy with psychic powers and his friends — but in this game, the time and setting are vastly different, and the threat to humanity is much more earthly than it was long ago.Unlike its two predecessors, Mother 3 shifts focus several times between the main protagonist, his family, and the people (and sometimes animals!) who will become his allies — and true to its slogan, its story is regarded as the darkest (and most emotional) of the three games while retaining all of the silly charm which endeared its fans to begin with.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Mother 3 is notable for its long development cycle (approximately the length of the already-long production of the previous title), having been planned almost immediately after Mother 2 was released. Details began to surface of Mother 3 as a Nintendo 64 title — as part of the now-failed Nintendo 64DD add-on — and was even given the tentative worldwide title EarthBound 64 before falling into vaporware territory (its earliest development predated Duke Nukem Forever's, which didn't surpass its time in Development Hell until 2007). It was officially cancelled in 2000, but eventually resurfaced in 2003 and was finally released for the Game Boy Advance in 2006— apparently due to renewed interest while Mother 1+2 was being worked on. However, Nintendo has yet to release the game outside of Japan, despite vocal campaigns of support for an international release. Lucas eventually saw international recognition due to his inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Nintendo's refusal to release the game outside of Japan (as the GBA was all but dead in North America and Europe by the time it was released) led to drastic measures— which, in this case, means an English-language Fan Translation which took years to complete. Said translation can be found here, though you'll need an official copy of the game to play it. As it stands, the translation is currently the only way to ever play the game in a language that is not Japanese. For ease of reference, this unofficial translation is the primary source for tropes.

Visible Silence: The Masked Man speaks in ellipses, except in two cases — at the sixth Needle, most likely giving commands to his army, as what he said wasn't even written onscreen, and during the final battle, after regaining his memory of being Claus, Lucas's brother, and then suffering mortal damage due to consciously reflecting a highly-powerful lightning bolt he fired off of Lucas's Franklin Badge, apologizing to his family before dying.

Dr. Andonuts then asks if it's wrong that he feels sympathy for him, and questions if maybe it's what he wanted after all. Then, after the Post-Final Boss...

Anthropomorphic Zig-Zag: Boney pretends to be a human boy in Chapter 4 in order to sneak past some guards. He does a good job at it, but since walking on two legs wears him out, he switches back before long. (This is almost certainly a reference to Mick and the Duncan Factory dog back in EarthBound Beginnings.)

Gaia's Lament
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_13a6b7ef
comment
Gaia's Lament: According to Leder, civilization collapsed and most of the world become uninhabitable. A group of people used a white ship to flee to the last part of the world that had not been corrupted, the Nowhere Islands, and debated what it was about the old world that made it unstable. After reaching an agreement, they brainwashed themselves to preserve nature and themselves, founding Tazmily Village and unknowingly starting over. When the Pigmasks took full charge, though, their efforts were ruined, and the islands were irresponsibly twisted into a mess of futuristic machinery and modern infrastructure. Either way, Lucas changes it in the ending when he pulls the last Needle... Maybe.

When Hinawa dies, everybody reacts differently. Lucas, her younger son, can't do anything but cry his little heart out at her grave. Claus, her older son, foolishly tries to avenge her, fails, and goes missing. Flint, her husband... breaks, then spends the next three years shut off from everybody and everything other than searching for Claus. Alec, her elderly father, seems to be the least affected, though it's implied he's just putting up a face for the sake of coping.

Heroic Mime: Played with even more than in EarthBound: the role of protagonist is shuffled around between characters before the Time Skip, and whoever holds it at the moment is silent, but these characters are perfectly talkative when someone else is in the lead. The exception is Salsa, who never talks at all. Granted, he's a monkey. One scene, at the start of Duster's chapter, is a repeat of the same scene in Flint's chapter, except Flint talks at the end, symbolizing the role of Player Character moving to Duster, who doesn't talk for the rest of the chapter.

Darker and Edgier
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: Considerably so compared to the first two games. This game was originally going to be even DARKER than the final version. The Dummied Out "nightmare" backgrounds show that some of these elements were in the GBA game for a part of its development, too. To name a few examples; you know how Ness from the previous game couldn't go far without having to call his mother for support, due to homesickness? Lucas can't, because his mother was violently killed in front of him when he was younger. And Ness having a young, sweet sister? Lucas's twin brother essentially commits child suicide at the end of the game.

Dummied Out
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_1653843c
comment
Dummied Out: There are ungodly amounts of unused content in the game: In terms of enemies, we have a giant bear, a tree monster, and the Alkaline Man, along with lots of unused entries that don't have any data to them. There's also a ton of unused music! There are lots of unused lines of text in the game. Notable examples include an exchange with the producer of something called Mr. Pirkle and Ms. Lardna's Love Nest", mentions of a New Pork Island, a conversation with the seventh Magypsy, Locria (who evidently had different development), and some end-game conversations with Kumatora and Duster (asking Lucas how having a mother felt like, and discovering all of their memories were fake.) Unused sprites and animations, unused (and sometimes very terrifying-looking) battle backgrounds, a picture of a gas station, and a giant pig balloon of some sort are just a fraction of the unused graphics in the game. Some of the sprites even bear an odd resemblance to a certain Universal Cosmic Destroyer... There are even unused cutscenes! Three of them seem to be flashbacks meant to play during the final battle (Lucas's childhood memories), while two of them appear to be from the ending (dealing with the ultimate fate of Salsa and Alec, who were the only ones left behind when everyone moved to New Pork City, surrounded with burnt animal corpses and falling meteorites.) A "memo" feature, which would give detailed information on various aspects of the game, was abandoned late enough in development that it completely works, aside from some incorrect info (presumably referring to how the game was at that point in development) and not actually being able to access it in the final game. The fan translation restores access, but doesn't fix the outdated descriptions.

Peninsula of Power Leveling
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_16972b3c
comment
Peninsula of Power Leveling: A late game example - near the end of the sewers under New Pork City, there is a room with a hot spring you can abuse for free unlimited healing. It's one door away from an area populated by enemies that give good EXP. Without free unlimited healing close at hand, they would be annoying to fight due to their tendency to inflict status effects, but since the hot spring means you don't have to be concerned either about that or about conserving PP, you can repeatedly one-shot them with PK Love Omega.

Storyboarding the Apocalypse: Done by the Magypsies when they reveal what'll happen if the Masked Man pulls the majority of the needles. Because he's an emotionless Chimera, and therefore has no personality or "heart"/"soul" to put into the Dark Dragon, the Dragon will then perceive that as him having no heart, and will cause the world to completely cease to exist.

You Are Already Dead: Due to the scrolling health meter, it is possible to take lethal damage but still stay alive until the health meter has finished scrolling to zero. Therefore, it is possible to survive if you get off a heal or finish the battle quickly enough.

I Miss Mom: Lucas shows many signs of this throughout the game, one of the the most notable moments being Chapter 6 when he tearfully chases his mother's ghost through a field of Sunflowers and jumps off a cliff trying to reach her. Claus definitely shows signs of this too, which is why he heads out in Chapter 1 to avenge her death at the hands of the Mecha-Drago. And if the final battle is anything to go by, even 3 years of being brain-washed as a killing machine didn't change this sentiment one bit.

As Tessie points out, the rain is also a good thing because it will help put out the forest fire. However, several other things happen during the same rainstorm that are less than happy.

Magic Is Rare, Health Is Cheap: Magic Tarts and Puddings are rare as they ever were, but thankfully, this only really affects Lucas and Kumatora. Boney is an Item Caddy, and Duster (as well as Guest Star Party Members Flint and Salsa) can use skills infinitely with no restrictions. Early game, you can even get lots of HP restoring items for free, since the citizens of Tazmily don't know what money is yet.

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_1e7487cd
comment
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Sparrows explain the gameplay mechanics in what they call "game speak," and early on in the game, a character addresses you directly, asking you to enter your name. There is also a character who is induced to be sick because you (the player) just won't let up on hitting A to advance the dialogue. And let's not forget that imagining "something called a B button" is how you learn to dash. The player gets directly asked their name, and then told to forget that they were ever asked. You're asked again in a later chapter, having the asker being very nervous about breaking the Fourth Wall, and telling Lucas to be careful or he might inconvenience the player.

Faceless Goons: The Pigmasks.

Also seen in Chapter 5, when some of the Pigmask NPCs wonder if they're doing the right thing when operating the Thunder Tower; and in Chapter 8, when a Pigmask in full uniform and face-concealing helmet, if spoken to, identifies himself as Isaac, having just recently joined the Pigmask Army.

comment
Crapsack World: New Pork City, and the Nowhere Islands when you leave them. Highways, concrete, steel, and technology have dominated the island, practically all of the local animals have been changed into robots or hideous chimeras, Tazmily has been abandoned after it was formed into a modern suburban-style town, and the familiar townsfolk of Tazmily have become distant from each other. Some are now jerks to Lucas and his party when they once were kind to them. In New Pork City, Porky rules with an iron fist. Lights, noise, junk food, media propaganda, and other artificial distractions are the way of life, and nature does not exist outside of a polluted trash dump.

It Sucks to Be the Chosen One
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_224f98fa
comment
It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: While Lucas isn't officially name-dropped as the Chosen One (though he is called this by Leder, in Chapter 8), the fact that he's one of only two people in the whole world who can use PK Love and pull the 7 Needles to awaken the dragon in a time where the world greatly would need its' power as prophesied hints at it. The Magypsies flat out point out this fact too. As such, Lucas definitely fits this trope, given all the traumatizing things that happen to him as he goes on his journey. The trope also applies to Claus as well, as he fulfills the same criteria as Lucas under "Chosen One" status, and because of this, he is robotized and brainwashed into becoming the Masked Man, where his ability to pull the needles and Psychic Strength is exploited for Porky's personal gain.

Chekhov's Gun: As early as Chapter 2, when you play as Duster with Wess in your party, you can see a needle stuck in the ground sparkling across the balcony overlooking the courtyard outside. Wess will only give a brief mention of a legend and then quickly dismiss it because "he's not looking for that". That needle happens to be Aeolia's end of existence and one of the Seven Needles Lucas has to pull before the Masked Man does first, which could cause the entire world to cease to exist. Early into Chapter 7, Lucas gets the Franklin Badge. Compared with previous games in the series, it cannot be equipped, and will only reflect Electric attacks directed at Lucas. Depending on how well you do against enemies with Electric attacks, you might not even remember you had this item in this inventory, but don't worry - it gets a critical role at the very end.

Dynamic Character

comment
Dynamic Character: Every RPG hero wants to get physically, mentally, or magically stronger. Lucas, on the other hand, wants to become stronger as a person. And so he does. Interestingly enough, though the most dynamic character in the game, and probably the entire series, is Porky Minch himself.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_23cb7c45
comment
So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear: Two characters can plague you with this: Flint is only playable during Chapter 1, and even if you give it to Duster before the chapter ends, he still doesn't keep any of the stuff Flint gives him regardless. Salsa will also take off with your crap forever after Chapter 3 and Chapter 7, so give all of his stuff to Kumatora or Lucas/Boney before he goes. In fact, when Salsa comes back in Chapter 7, he still has all the stuff he had during Chapter 3, which gives you a second chance to have Lucas or Boney take it.

Thriving Ghost Town: This game is the only one in the series that doesn't avert this trope. Only a certain amount of people were able to escape the dying world, and at the rate things were going, the people of Tazmily Village would probably die out in several centuries. Porky Minch defies this trope by filling Nowhere Islands with people from different times.

One-Time Dungeon: Most dungeons and areas in the game can be revisited in at least one later chapter (although the enemy types and layout will change with the plot). The major exceptions are the Attic Dungeon in Chapter 4, which becomes inaccessible once the chapter ends with its completion, and the Thunder Tower, which is only accessible in Chapter 5 because the story at that point involves infiltrating and destroying it.

Easter Egg
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_29a39f6
comment
Easter Egg: There's lot of 'em. If you talk to one of Butch's Pigs in Chapter 2, he'll say that he knows a Pig who has inside information on "Something-or-Other 3." When a Pigmask offers Lucas a gift saying it's "strictly" on a friend basis, if you talk to him again and pay close attention, you'll notice that Lucas actually says something and talks back to him, being the only time in the game (besides in the Debug Room) that you see Adolescent Lucas's talking sprite. Most people miss this because Lucas just repeats exactly what the Pigmask says to him, and assume it's another case of Welcometo Corneria. If you show the Friend's Yo-yo to the Masked Man in the middle of the first fight with him, the text will say "The Masked Man was happy for Lucas!"

Informed Equipment: Most of the armor and equipment you'll find are badges, charms, rings, bracelets, and other kinds of accessories which would be too small to be visible on the over-world sprites. Played straight with the much less common shirt and hat accessories.

Awesome, but Impractical: The New Years' Eve Bomb, it brings an enemy down to only 1 HP. The only downside is that every enemy you try to use this on that isn't the King Porky Statue will cause the item to be a Dud and fail. Because otherwise it'd be a Game-Breaker.

Sound Test: The game has one, called the Sound Player, available from the beginning, but the track names are hidden until you listen to them in the game proper. For some unexplained reason, there are a few songs not included in it, such as the Chiptune version of "No Eating Crackers in the Cinema" (commonly called "This Theater Stinks" by fans) and the song that plays in Sunshine Forest from Chapter 4 and beyond. (Called "Unsettling Preserve".)

comment
Beef Gate: The Zombieshroom at the beginning of Tanetane Island isn't the usual "you'd better be leveled up" variety — after the previous cutscene, everyone in the part is at 1 HP, 0 PP, and lost all their items, so the unavoidable Zombieshroom fight ensures you heal up with those funky shrooms. Weirdly, once you do eat the shrooms, the battle becomes skippable. Don't visit the Sunshine Forest in Chapter 4 unless your first goal for the chapter is to lose to some Grated Yammonsters.

comment
Apologetic Attacker: One of Salsa's skills is to "apologize profusely" to the enemy. This is a nod to one of Porky's totally useless actions when he's your party member in EarthBound. Other enemies sometimes waste their turns apologizing, such as Pigmasks. Incidentally, this is one of the first huge instances of foreshadowing to the fact that Porky is the main villain, besides the whole "pig" motif.

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_31f0842c
comment
Age-Appropriate Angst: When Hinawa dies, everybody reacts differently. Lucas, her younger son, can't do anything but cry his little heart out at her grave. Claus, her older son, foolishly tries to avenge her, fails, and goes missing. Flint, her husband... breaks, then spends the next three years shut off from everybody and everything other than searching for Claus. Alec, her elderly father, seems to be the least affected, though it's implied he's just putting up a face for the sake of coping. Three years later, Lucas, having gotten stronger and more mature over the course of the adventure, has to fight a brainwashed Claus and ultimately have him die in his arms. He still feels grief, but it's not crippling enough to prevent him from finishing his quest to save the world.

comment
Humans Are Flawed: However, the game does feature Hinawa and Lucas (who are both human), who are nowhere near the bastards Porky and Fassad (who is a Magypsy) are. Even in the case of Tazmily being influenced by the Pigmasks, it's arguable that it's just as much that several of them are ignorant from years of living in a controlled environment After the End as it is that they are inherently morally questionable by virtue of being human. Despite this lingering fact, there still seems to be a Rousseau Was Right theme in there, just like all of the Mother games.

How to trigger the event flags in Sunflower Fields, which can kind of ruin the impact the chapter for it has. If you just walk to the left, the event flag that triggers Boney won't trigger. You're suppose to zig-zag up and down as you walk instead of walking in a straight line. It's admittedly simple, but it can trip gamers up since it's something that one wouldn't think of, with most likely thinking a Game-Breaking Bug has happened or some form of Copy Protection is taking place.

comment
Awful Truth: Leder's final role is to tell Lucas how his beloved home of Tazmily was always a fabrication; a fringe village on the edge of nothing, whose people had willingly brainwashed themselves to prevent another armageddon. This is why the villagers act so cruelly when Lucas mourns for any length of time; they have a very strong reaction to "bad" feelings. Look at how they first tell Flint the bad news. And look at how Flint completely breaks down afterward.

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_3866ab91
comment
Deceased Parents Are the Best: Sadly enough, Hinawa is killed in the first few minutes of the game. While the game exemplifies that Hinawa is a great mother throughout the whole game, Flint, on the other hand, is seen as neglectful and distant towards Lucas after her death (that is, in the search of Lucas's brother, Claus).

Uncommon Time: Due to the Rhythm Game elements, the game likes to throw in songs that are not in 4/4 or 3/4 to throw you off. The most notorious examples of this would be "Strong One" and its Masked Man counterpart, which play in 15/8 and 29/16, respectively.

Guest-Star Party Member: During the first three chapters, there are various "guest" party members that can (sometimes) help out in battle. Most of them aren't very useful, but Wess certainly fits this trope, and Fassad in Chapter 3 is far more powerful than the main character at that point (which isn't saying a lot, so he's essential to have in battle).

Non-Lethal K.O.: Unlike the first two Mother games, characters who get KO'd in combat don't become ghosts. Rather, they then essentially sleep walk while unconscious once you return to the overworld alongside the current conscious party members. They return to their normal state at 1 HP once a cutscene occurs, though. Like previous Mother games, enemy encounters don't "die" per se; for example, Pigmasks you take down instead surrender after defeat.

Long-Lost Relative: When your twin brother goes missing and you spend the good part of three years mourning his loss, having him be forced against his will to try and kill you is definitely not a nice way to reunite.

Adult Fear
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: Losing your mother, violently, and right in front of your eyes. Watching your father completely break down and hurt other people in a grief-driven rampage, only to be knocked out by the local warden. The whole idea of Claus, a little boy, running away and never being found. While hallucinating, having everybody who loves and cares about you both physically hurting and viciously insulting you. Among them is your father, threatening to beat you. Being forced against your will fight against somebody you dearly love. Watching your children fight, one of them with the intent to kill. And finally, a child committing suicide in front of his family.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed with Kumatora. She's not a jerk, per say, just brash, short-tempered, and a bit of a potty mouth. Regardless, she's still got her heart in the right place. Old Man Wess is more of a straight example. He does care about his son, he just really sucks at showing it.

Intergenerational Friendship: Lucas forges this with Kumatora and Duster. (Especially Duster, who might be in his thirties). This could be said of most of the people early on in the game due to the tight knit community that they had.

Getting Crap Past the Radar
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_4b86a724
comment
Getting Crap Past the Radar: Now, this game isn't kid-friendly to begin with, but there's still some crap that could be considered too far even by Mother standards. Count away all the mild cursing ("damn", "bastard", albeit in the Fan Translation), references to alcohol, references to hallucinogenic mushroom drugs and the Family-Unfriendly Death of both Hinawa and Claus, there's still quite a few dubious moments. In Porky's limousine you can use massage chairs. After you step off, Lucas and Kumatora will start blushing as the text exclaims: "What is this feeling?!", and considering Lucas and Kumatora are fairly young... Also, at one point in Chapter 4, the term "sexual harassment" is explicitly used. Club Titiboo anyone?

After the Time Skip, however, this trope is in full effect against anybody in Tazmily not in ownership of a Happy Box.

World Limited to the Plot: In EarthBound, you more or less travel all over the world to other continents and even uncharted parts of the world. But in this game, you only explore the Nowhere Islands. The reason for this is because everywhere else on Earth has been destroyed; People destroyed the world long before the events of the story took place, and the Islands are the only inhabitable place left on Earth.

Do Well, but Not Perfect: Porky will force you to play a series of competitive challenges against his pathetically inept Porky-bots during the ascent through the Empire Porky Building. The only way to progress is to give a 90-99% percent effort and lose by a hair or else he will get mad and accuse you of cheating (win a game) or losing on purpose without trying (lose a game by more than a hair).

But Thou Must!
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_504e271f
comment
But Thou Must!: It doesn't really matter what option you pick in any choice; all that'll happen is you'll get a slight change in the dialogue, and sometimes be forced to answer again. An interesting variation occurs at the end of Chapter 4. If, somehow, you lose to O.J. in Stone-Sheet-Clippers, a man will come in and tell you to keep the noise down. O.J. won't remember his (winning) result, and you get to try again. Special mention goes to the final choice of the game - choosing not to pull out the last needle results in Lucas doing it anyway, actively defying the player to do what he knows is right. There was even special Unused text that was supposed to show if you chose No, which was "No one can stop Lucas from pulling the needle. No one. A particularly cruel example occurs throughout the entirety of Salsa's first chapter. The player can refuse to do everything Fassad tells Salsa to do, but he'll just use his remote for the shock collar he has on Salsa to electrocute Salsa over and over and over again until you agree to do it.

Book-Ends
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_5313c266
comment
Book Ends: The last shot of the credits is Hinawa releasing a blue pigeon, but the end screen plays with this even more by echoing the title screen. The Game starts with Lucas's family all living happily together before they're torn apart by the Pigmask army, with Hinawa's death, Claus's disappearance, and Flint all but abandoning Lucas to search for Claus, leaving Lucas and Boney alone. During the Final Battle, the whole family is re-united at the Last Needle, even Hinawa through the means of appearing as a ghost to save Claus, only for them to be separated again for the final time, with Claus joining Hinawa in death. The First Battle of Mother 3 has Lucas and Claus fighting a Mole Cricket together. The Final Battle of the game also has them fighting, but this time it's against each other. One that's even more meta: One of the final areas of the Empire Porky Building has the music from the title screen of EarthBound Beginnings. And to top it all off: The ending credits music contains the Eight Melodies from EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound, as well as the Mother 3 Theme of Love.

Boom Town: New Pork City. The entire populace of Tazmily moves there by the end of the game. Not to mention most to all attractions in the city are named after their founder and leader. It basically exists to feed Porky's ego. Notably, it's not as big as it looks: there are only a small number of real buildings, but to make the city seem grander in scale, it is padded out with a lot of plywood cutouts of buildings, similar to what one might find on a film set. Speaking of their leader, he has his own statue to add on to the city. Watch out, though...

Flashback
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_53c9fc92
comment
Flashback: This tends to happen to Lucas often throughout the game. Lucas first gets a couple at the start of Chapter 4, where he's reminded of the painful absence of his mother when he tries to leave the house before getting dressed and how she used to comb his hair while he's dressing himself alone. It happens again in Chapter 6, when he gets one right before he sees his Mother's ghost. A very important one happens in the Final Battle. Lucas and Claus are fighting each other in a heartrending "I Know You're in There Somewhere Fight, and Hinawa's ghost pleads with them to remember their past and stop fighting. The two then have a flashback to when they were babies, when their parents hoped for the best for their futures and had faith that they'd grow up to be wonderful people. This is what finally gets Claus to return to his senses.

Fantastic Rank System

comment
Fantastic Rank System: The Pigmask Army has a small ranking system that you meet throughout the whole game: Aquatic Mook: The Navy SQUEAL's surround the underwater area of Cerulean Beach. Mooks: Regular ol' Pigmasks in pink uniforms. Elite Mooks: Both the Pigmask Captain and Pigmask Major can qualify as this. The Captain shines a blue uniform while the Major enrobes in a green uniform. Mook Lieutenant: The Pigmask Colonel who dons a cape in a white uniform. King Mook: The Pork Trooper, also called the "Scary Womanizing Pigmask", has his uniform that would be classified as a Heavily Armored Mook.

Nobody Poops: Like in EarthBound, averted, and how! Toilets (and people using them) are everywhere. There's even a dungeon made of them in the Empire Porky Building, and you can find many Pigmasks doing their "business" there. Beware the PK Starstorm-using Men's Room Signs, though! One small cutscene features Pigmasks having a conversation that revolves entirely around what to use the hooks in the bathroom for. Not only the Pigmasks use the bathrooms, but the Ultimate Chimera does too. All those Pigmasks it ate have to come out sometime. He doesn't take it kindly if you disturb him on loo. The worst part is that you need to piss him off if you want to get the treasure chest inside the Ultimate Chimera's bathroom stall.

Saving the World: The goal of our heroes is to stop the reign of the Pigmask Army, their spread of technology and their twisting of nature. This eventually comes down to a race to pull 7 needles that depending on the heart of the person who pulls it, will either rebirth the world and wash away all evil, or destroy it entirely, and the heroes are trying to save the world from a bad fate.

Disc-One Nuke: The Squawking Sticks outside the factory in Chapter 4 have a 5% chance of dropping a Good Stick. There'll be no better weapon available for Lucas for the next couple of chapters, so it may be worth your time to try and obtain it as soon as you can. At the beginning of Chapter 5, you can backtrack to Osohe Castle and defeat Lord Passion; for doing so, you'll get the Mystical Shoes, which will last Duster all the way through to Chapter 7, if not the rest of the game. Black Beanlings give way too much experience upon defeat. If you can kill just one in Chapter 4, you'll skyrocket by like 10 levels, and steamroll everything.

Twin Telepathy: Clearly something is going on when Lucas and the Masked Man meet each other at each needle. The Flashing Colors and their elipses each time they see each other imply that on some level they know who they're looking at. The trope can also be taken literally in terms of wording, given the fact that both Lucas and Claus are Psychic and are the only ones in the world who can use PK Love.

Triumphant Reprise: The theme of the first chapter boss Mecha-Drago is an imposing, melancholy tune, symbolizing the duel between Flint and the monster that killed his wife. The theme returns at the end of chapter 3, with Kumatora and company cornered, suddenly Lucas shows up and so do a pair of normal Dragos in a triumphant return that signals a change in the story, and it's also at this point where Lucas takes over as the protagonist for the remainder of the game.

Dissonant Serenity: Every line of Porky's dialogue, considering how bombastic his theme music is and the fact that he's trying to destroy the island for a quick laugh. The Masked Man never emotes. Ever.

Public Domain Soundtrack: Family Matters: 2nd Movement contains bits of: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. Etude for Ghosts contains bits of (which sounds a bit like Saint-Saens' Piano Concerto No. 2): Mozart's Symphony No. 40. Beethoven's Symphony No. 6. Ode to Ancestors: 8th Movement is a mashup of: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Handel's Messiah. Vivaldi's Spring. Audacious March and His Highness' Theme have a bit of similar notes to Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No.5. Leder's Gymnopedie is Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1. Contrast with the second game's notorious use of Sampling.

Golden Snitch: Parodied in the Empire Porky Building, where you have to play a series of minigames against a robotic version of the Big Bad. The final game is apparently worth enough to win, but the point is moot since you're supposed to lose.

Attack Reflector: The Franklin Badge. Claus uses it for tragic results. Also, the new Counter and PSI Counter moves exclusive to this game, they reflect half of Physical and PSI damage back at the attacker respectively. As you learn more and more PSI and get stronger, more of the Bosses, especially in late game, will usually have this on at the start of battle to prevent you from cheesing them out with a lot of damage at the start.

Deflector Shields: Counter and PSI Counter, reflecting half of physical or PSI damage (depending on the ability) back at the opponent. Shield and PSI Shield accomplish a similar effect of halving damage but without returning damage to the attacker. The Franklin Badge reflects all lightning-based PSI back from Lucas back to his attacker. It seems great... until the last battle.

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_65163c3a
comment
Evil Tower of Ominousness: Two, actually: Thunder Tower (A.K.A. The Tower of Love and Peace) and the Empire Porky Building. The Empire Porky Building has some interesting floors, and can be considered a Big Labyrinthine Building once you reach them: The Fan Room. There are no enemies here, unlike the other dungeon floors, but some of the dialogue from the NPC's here may make some players feel squeamish. The quirky, like this game isn't enough, "all-you-can-pee" dungeon floor. Potty Emergencies can happen here from your fellow NPC's, understandably enough that this game, even the series, lampshaded on. The construction zone floor. Why this floor is in the middle of all the other ones is beyond anyone's understanding. Oddly enough, you can sense that this floor has the same kind of symbolic meaning as the title, what with the concrete and lumber and all. The high-tech lab.

Interface Screw: If you win/leave a battle with one or more party member affected by Feeling Strange, your walking controls will be reversed for a short time. Most battle themes have a "Hard" version that plays later in the game and is very similar to the one you are used to combo with... except for certain sections that accelerate, slowdown or outright stop to ruin your rhythm in the middle of a combo.

Improbable Weapon User: Yo-yos, lumber, banana peels — Duster uses giant staples, a loud insect, a feather, and other "thief tools" to supplement kicking with a crippled leg. Since Boney only gets one relatively weak weapon at the very end of the game, one could argue that his collars are his weapons, since some of them increase offense. Duster's weapons are shoes and he attacks by kicking. His disability is a club foot, yet he is not hindered by his crippled leg because that is how god-tier badass he is.

It's not the usual "attack the Final Boss until they're dead" to win the fight, but instead it has Lucas refusing to attack his Brother and Hinawa constantly trying to reach out to Claus that breaks him free from Porky's control and ends the fight.

Face–Monster Turn: The Mecha-Drago is the first significant Chimera you face in the story that's had this. All of the Chimeras are this, they were once just normal, peaceful animals that've been warped by the Pigmasks. But the most tragic, and memorable example of this is definitely The Masked Man, AKA Claus.

Welcome to Corneria: This being a Mother game, thoroughly averted. One memorable subversion is when you meet a Pigmask that gives Lucas a gift in Chapter 5, saying it's strictly on a "friend basis." If you talk to him again, the same text will show and it'll seem like this is a case of this... But if you pay close attention, it turns out that Lucas, the main character who's been silent for most of the game, is actually the one speaking here, but he says exactly what the Pigmask said back to him.

Guide Dang It!
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_6ec989d8
comment
Guide Dang It!: Done to great effect with the Magypsy mementos. The game gives no indication that they will automatically revive you if you die, and realizing it by yourself can be a Tear Jerker and/or a Heartwarming Moment. There's also no indication anywhere in the game that revisiting Osohe Castle in Chapter 5, to fight a Bonus Boss, will yield any kind of reward. Completing the Battle Memory involves fighting the Zombieshroom before eating the mushrooms, even though you'll be guaranteed a Game Over. Fighting him after eating the mushrooms doesn't count. Interestingly, the Zombieshroom becomes skippable after eating the mushrooms...but if you want the Eerie Smile entry, only one particular enemy will give you it. Of course, it's the Zombieshroom. And then the Zombieshroom disappears after you're cured from the mushrooms, so you can't skip it and come back when you actually stand a chance and aren't on a massive drug trip. How to trigger the event flags in Sunflower Fields, which can kind of ruin the impact the chapter for it has. If you just walk to the left, the event flag that triggers Boney won't trigger. You're suppose to zig-zag up and down as you walk instead of walking in a straight line. It's admittedly simple, but it can trip gamers up since it's something that one wouldn't think of, with most likely thinking a Game-Breaking Bug has happened or some form of Copy Protection is taking place.

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_71e8a5c5
comment
Trauma Conga Line: If you listed all the traumatic things that happen over the course of Lucas's life, you would more or less have a summary of the game's plot. To those who are curious, select the following note and grab a few tissues. note First, his mother gets violently killed right in front of his eyes. As a result, his father almost goes mad from the resulting grief, attacking people from the village and getting chucked into prison before he can even attend her funeral. Shortly afterwards, his older brother, Claus. goes out to try and avenge his mother's death, and goes missing in the process. All in the span of two days. Please note that this is the first time anybody in the society he lives in has experienced grief, so nobody knows how to console or comfort him. Not done yet, though. That very same day, a suspicious guy comes into Tazmily Village, telling everybody a load of waffle about "happiness" and starts peddling objects called "Happy Boxes" to everyone. These boxes essentially hypnotize the entire village, except for Lucas, who refuses to buy one, and as a result, everybody in this previously close-knit and loving community slowly begin turning into selfish, hedonistic jerks. Years later, Lucas is now considered an outcast, even a disgrace, to the village. His father, still grieving over his wife, barely talks with him anymore and spends nearly all of his time searching for Claus, who is still missing. Around this time, his adventure starts. And while he does finally make two very good friends as a result, his situation hardly improves. On top of having to constantly battle against horrifying, bloodthirsty creatures known as Chimeras, he now has an entire army set against him, the same army who was indirectly responsible for his mother's death in the first place. After disabling the army's thunder tower, he finds himself in a field of sunflowers where, out of nowhere, he sees his mother's ghost. He can't touch or communicate her, and ends up chasing her off a cliff in desperation. It's not very clear if this is a dream or actually happening. But wait, there's more. Around this time, he and his friends find out about these weird objects known as the seven needles, which will restore the entire world either full of evil or full of good depending on who pulls them. The journey to getting the seven needles leads him through countless traumatic situations, from being nearly eaten alive by a horrifying monster called the Ultimate Chimera, to accidentally sending himself on a very, very bad hallucinogenic drug trip, but he ultimately only manages to pull half of them. The other half are getting pulled by the commander of the army, known as the Masked Man. Once he and the Masked Man have both pulled three, Tazmily is now completely abandoned, so he has no choice but to finally go to the hub of all the corruption in his world, New Pork City. Once there, he has to live with the long-hidden truth about Tazmily: It was all a lie. The game actually takes place After the End, and Tazmily was set up so the last few dozen people left on Earth could live in ignorance to the world's destruction. After this, the final needle is located, and he and his friends go to pull it, as it is now the world's only hope for redemption. After defeating the Big Bad, he and the Masked Man meet in front of the final needle, ready to battle for it. As it turns out, the Masked Man is actually Claus, brainwashed and with no memory of being Lucas's brother. What follows is an absolutely heartbreaking "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight, during which Claus easily has the upper hand, and with Claus still showing no sign of remembering, his mother's ghost shows up for a second time. With her help, Claus very slowly realizes who he is and takes his mask off. He then kills himself, allowing Lucas to take the needle, and dies in Lucas's arms. Keep in mind that all of this is happening to a likable, mild-mannered boy who hasn't even hit puberty yet.

The construction zone floor. Why this floor is in the middle of all the other ones is beyond anyone's understanding. Oddly enough, you can sense that this floor has the same kind of symbolic meaning as the title, what with the concrete and lumber and all.

Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Porky may be physically thousands of years old, but he still has the mind of a pre-teen child. After Hinawa dies, Claus runs away to the mountains to try and avenge her. Note that the thing that killed her is a half-robot tyrannosaurus rex , and he's a nine-year old boy armed with a steak knife.

Once you reach the basement of the Empire Porky Building, there's no turning back.

Later Installment Weirdness
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_7b21ef92
comment
Later Installment Weirdness: The game is this to the Mother series. Not only do you start off on a rural town on a group of Islands that aren't remotely like a Modern Era continent that resembles America, and the fact that there isn't even a concept of Money in your hometown, the villains aren't aliens from outer zpace, they're humans who've been corrupted by their own greed and selfishness that are working for the Big Bad in order to industrialize the Islands. You don't play as the true main character until Chapter 4, and even then the main party doesn't consist of four kids anymore, but of a Kid, his Dog, and a Thief and Princess who are way older than him. Each character who dons the role of the main character for each part of the game are Silent Protagonists, but the game fully acknowledges and shows you that when they're not in that role, they all speak normally like any other NPC and have their own personalities, including main protagonist Lucas. That being said, even while in this role, all of the characters still react to the situations around them and don't just act like a blank slate, such as when Flint lashes out at the villagers after he finds out his wife is dead or when Salsa starts crying because of the abuse Fassad puts him through. This is most notable with Lucas in particular, as his sensitive personality bleeds through his silent exterior during particular (especially emotional) moments of the game despite him being this, completely changing the formula that Ninten and Ness set before him. And lastly, the game deconstructs the Artifact Title that Mother 2 brought to the series, by having Lucas's own Mother be a focal part of the story through her death, and how that event sets the tone of the story and influences the actions of the characters from then on, as well as her role in the Finale. Overall, the world and setting are much more medieval and fantasy inspired than before, deconstructing the series to the point of bringing it back to more traditional Eastern RPG roots like Final Fantasy. Which is to be expected, when you end up deconstructing a game series that is known for deconstructing the RPG Genre to begin with.

And Now for Someone Completely Different: This trope is in effect with the game in general, as it is extremely different from its two predecessors both in its tone and methods of storytelling. You play through the prologue as young Lucas, then the next three chapters are played by three completely different characters before going through the rest of the game as Lucas again.

Despite the efforts of the good hearted people of Tazmily like Lucas and Wess, the world still was industrialized and corrupted for the most part.

Ambiguous Time Period: Takes place on the Nowhere Islands, completely isolated from the broader world.

Continuity Cavalcade: There's a room near the end the Very Definitely Final Dungeon where you walk down a Long Corridor and the title music to EarthBound Beginnings plays as you walk along it. It then leads to a place that's basically a gallery for iconic objects from EarthBound, complete with a joyful rendition of Pollyanna.

It Amused Me: Ultimately, Porky's motive was that he was bored. Also the ghosts in Osohe Castle. Not very scary at first, the former residence of Osohe Castle. But then when you talk to Leder, you realize that they are the ghosts of the people that once lived on the island but seemed to have died out long before the white ship appeared. They could possibly the ancestors of the Magypsies as well.

Seemingly Hopeless Boss Fight
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_83c0cabe
comment
Seemingly Hopeless Boss Fight: The Final Battle. The fight starts off with your entire party except Lucas being wiped out and you're unable to revive them, and Lucas is unable to attack the Masked Man at all because he can't bring himself to hurt his brother. The Masked Man keeps wailing on Lucas and easily reduces him to Mortal Damage within only a few turns, it's all you can do to Guard against his attacks and try to keep Lucas alive. It isn't until Hinawa's Spirit appears to plead with Claus to remember himself and Flint taking two PK Love Omegas for Lucas that you can finally attack, but the Goal of the fight isn't to fight the Masked Man until he's defeated, you just have to wait until Hinawa's efforts finally break through to Claus and get him to remember who he is, ending the fight.

Reality Is Unrealistic: At one point, you find a frog in a desert, which seems kind of odd. A nearby sign invokes this trope though, by telling the player that there are frogs that do live in the desert. Later, there is a similar situation with an underground dungeon built by moles (actually mole crickets, but the trope still applies).

 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_874176be
comment
Psychic Powers: Being a staple of the Mother games, this is a given with the Protagonists. This time around the Psychics are Lucas and Kumatora. The Magypsies and the Masked Man/Claus also apply. Interestingly enough, the latter implies that perhaps PSI may be genetic, given his connection to Lucas. The connection between Ninten being Psychic and his grandfather stealing the secrets of PSI from aliens from the first game could also hint at this, depending on where in the timeline you believe Mother 3 takes place in. The menu for PSI also includes: Telepathy: Kumatora seems to be adept at doing it to communicate with Animals, and Lucas usually does the same to talk to his dog Boney and the other animals he meets. Telekinesis: Several subtypes show up in combat, including pyrokinesis (PSI Fire), cryokinesis (PSI Freeze), fulgurkinesis (PSI Thunder), and psychic healing, as well as less easily defined attacks such as Lucas's signature move or PK Starstorm. Psychic Barriers: Can be used to deflect or even reflect both physical and psychic attacks.

Spell My Name with an
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_89a17726
comment
Spell My Name with an "S": Despite being a Japan-only game, there are multiple English names used in the fandom for the same things due to a combination of the 1997-1999 EarthBound 64 coverage, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Clyde Mandelin's translation and attempts by other fans. For example, the Mandelin translation follows the lead of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and uses the proper translation of Porky's name, instead of using the erroneous "Pokey" spelling used in EarthBound's official translation. Also, the debacle about the number of possible translations of Tazmily Village's name, including Tazumili and Tatsumairi. Tazumili was used in the NTSC version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Tatsumairi was the most common interpretation before then. The fan translation went with Tazmily, which comes from both the PAL version of Brawl and a few English sources such as the N64 MOTHER 3 website and Nintendo 64 magazines◊. Some of the names of the characters and places, such as Lucas, Claus, Salsa, Wess, Isaac, and Club Titiboo, were known as Ryuka/Ryukka, Kraus/Klaus, Sarusa, Wes, Yosaku, and the Chichiboo (respectively) in EarthBound 64 materials.

Debug Room: Only accessible with Codes, the Debug Room has many NPC's (even NPC's of formerly playable characters) that you can talk to to mess around with all the stuff in the game. You can manipulate your party to be whatever of the 7 playable characters you want, along with Guest Star Party Members, have up to 5 people in your party (though, if all 5 of those people are Playable characters, only the first 4 will show up in battle), start any chapter of the game and start at any point of each Chapter, manipulate your levels, and look through all outro and intro effects, even ones that are unused in the final game.

Took a Level in Jerkass: The Tazmily townsfolk will become greedier and more self-centered once Fassad's modernized it three years post-Hinawa's death, and will badmouth Lucas for not owning a Happy Box.

Simultaneous Arcs: Chapters 2 and 3 take place at the exact same time, only you're controlling different characters. Duster in the second, and Salsa in the third. It becomes most evident when the two characters bump into each at the same area in both chapters.

Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence: It's more of a parody than anything when you come across this when trying to leave Argilla Pass in the prologue. This is just one example of the quirky humor in this game.

Non Standard Game Over: In Chapter 2 if Duster is standing on the spot where the giant ball is supposed to fall from the statue when it falls he'll instantly be crushed leading instantly to the "Retry" screen. Also if the party makes contact with the Ultimate Chimera at any time there is a simple chomping sound as the screen turns red and then the "Retry" screen appears.

Action Commands: If you keep pressing A in time with the beat of the background music, you score extra hits. There's even a drum enemy which can change the beat to throw you off. And sometimes, you'll hear music that sounds familiar at first but actually has an extra beat or two thrown in or taken out, again to throw you off.

Two-Part Trilogy: In terms of continuity and the battle system, EarthBound and Mother 3 are one of these. This game has more Continuity Nods to EarthBound than EarthBound Beginnings had in the latter two games. However, the first game and the second are also a Two-Part Trilogy, in terms of the setting and being an Affectionate Parody of Dragon Quest.

Laser-Guided Karma: Fassad treats Salsa the monkey like a personal slave and abuses him with an electric shock collar at every given opportunity no matter how well he carries out Fassad's orders. Fassad gets what he deserves by falling 10,000 feet from slipping on a banana peel, being revived as a human/machine hybrid, and being killed off for good in the sewers of New Pork City. Exploring the Empire Porky Building shows evidence that that Fassad was Locria, the otherwise unseen seventh Magypsy and keeper of the final needle, essentially marking him as a traitor.

Mook Chivalry: Near the end, you fight ten Mecha-Porkies, but only three of them are onscreen at any one time, in part due to the game engine's limitations. This is also done a couple other times, such as the fight against the four zombies. If you get enough enemies in the same spot, you'll only fight three at a time as well (this is easiest in the room in Thunder Tower with the five or six Whatevers).

Prolonged Prologue
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_967fb42a
comment
Prolonged Prologue: While everyone considers this to be a great game throughout, about the only thing people will admit this game has a major flaw is the prologue is a bit long. From a story perspective, it's needed to setup for the plot. However, this causes the gameplay to suffer a bit, as you end up getting bounced between three different characters with different fighting styles and reset back to level one each time, while the enemies continue to get harder regardless. Even those that think this is the peak of the Mother series will admit that they had trouble making it past the first three chapters because of how annoying it gets. Naturally though, it gets way better once you get past them.

Dead Character Walking
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_988357f9
comment
Dead Character Walking: Literally, since the characters walk one after another, they are still able to walk around, but their sprite looks excessively tired. Also, you're prevented from running so long as any of your party members are downed, which, naturally, can be problematic if you're caught in the middle of a dungeon, surrounded by enemies and without a way of reviving them.

Press X to Die: While playing as Duster in Osohe Castle in Chapter 2, in order to get inside the castle, you must open a hole to get to the floor below. Fortunately, there's a conveniently placed statue holding a large iron ball. Dash into it, and it'll drop the ball, which crashes through the floor. Dash into it from the right, and it'll drop the ball, which crashes through you.

Villains Blend in Better: Well, it makes sense if you consider that the Pigmask Army remodeled the Nowhere Islands in their own image. What's makes this trope even more so is that the villains appeared well after the Tazmily civilians took residence in the Nowhere Islands, as seen in the prologue.

Unknown Item Identification: A downplayed, and rather bizarre, example: whenever you give Wan Sum Dung some dung, he may randomly announce that the particular dung is "exquisitely-aged" or, in rare cases, "legendary", and proceeds to give you more experience than usual in exchange (10 EXP for the former, 50 EXP for the latter).

Interface Spoiler: Of a sort. When an enemy tries to steal something, but fails, the message is "In the confusion, [enemy] tried to steal an item, [beat] but failed!" Obviously, the beat is there to add a bit of suspense. One problem: when an enemy successfully steals an item, the message is different: "In the confusion, [enemy] stole [a/an/some] [item]!" which makes the "suspenseful" beat pointless since you already know it didn't succeed.

Foreshadowing
 Mother 3 (Video Game) / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: Tons of it, if you know where to look. Probably the most Notable examples are the Foreshadowing towards the fact that Claus is actually the true identity of the Masked Man, Commander of the Pig Army. First it's implied when Lucas is somehow mistaken for the Masked Man and is said to look exactly like him. Then after Lucas finds out that only he has the power to pull the Needles that can awaken the Dark Dragon and use PK Love, something that not even the Magypsies can do, he later discovers that the Mysterious Masked Man is also able to pull the Needles and use PK Love just like him. This one is especially telling if you remember that before Claus went to fight the Mecha Drago, the Magypsies said that they awakened the power of PSI inside him, and gave him a "Very Special PSI Technique". There's also the fact that when you fight the Masked Man, his Physical Attacks have the same Musical Riffs as Claus's did back in Chapter 1. And finally, everytime Lucas and the Masked Man meet face to face, they both are at a loss for words and have Flashback Stares, implying that they recognize each other on some level. It's easy for people to see the Plot Twist coming very early on with how much Foreshadowing is laid out for it. All the way back in Chapter 1, you can find Nana, a girl that lives in Tazmily Village, watching the Ocean near the Beach. If you talk to her, she'll mention that Tanetane Island is supposedly an island of nightmares, but doesn't know why it's known as such. You later find out when the party visits the island and eat the mushrooms on the island to survive that this is because the Mushrooms cause people to have a bad Hallucenogetic trip and experience their worst fears come to life. Again with Nana but in chapter 2. If you talk to her after getting Wess to acompany Duster, she'll comment that she finds it strange that none of the people in Tazmily take after their relatives in terms of appearence which hints at the fact that the few people who arrived at the Nowhere Islands after having survived the end of the world builded Tazmily Village and earased all their memories of the previous world, esentially taking up new identities with made up pasts and believing that they hald always lived in peace and harmony with each other, in hopes of preventing themselves from destroying what little was left from the world. There are countless hints about Fassad being a Magypsy, but one of the earliest might be easy to miss. At the start of Chapter 3, Fassad asks the then nameless Salsa to come up with a name for himself, which in turn means that Fassad can understand animals, thus hinting he can use PSI. In Chapter 5, if you go back to the Clayman Factory near Club Titiboo and head to the last room in the Factory and talk to the Pigmask there, he'll mention that there are rumors of the Pigmasks having an alterior motive of searching for a Dragon that's supposedly buried underground and is larger than the islands themselves. Naturally, he dismisses this as false. Also in Chapter 5, if you talk to a Pigmask in the next Clayman Factory you find, they'll mention how they guy who came up with and made the Claymen is a genius, but they can't remember his name and keep mispronouncing it as "Ando, Antoine, Adamantium, Androggyny". You later find out the scientist's name is Andonuts, the same Dr. Andonuts from EarthBound. At the start of Chapter 7, if you talk to the people in Tazmily, you'll find they're all talking about "New Pork" and "the Big City", and all of them are heavily considering leaving Tazmily to move there. When you hit Chapter 8 you'll find out that they were talking about New Pork City, the Ultimate Hub of corruption on the Nowhere Islands created by Porky, and the location of the Final Needle. Also in Chapter 7, when you're in the Chimera Lab, if you look in the room on the first floor where they're holding Chimeras, and read the Plaque where there's no Chimera inside, it'll say "PORKY 08, SOLD OUT". Later in Chapter 8, you're attacked by the Porky Bots, all of whom are named "PORKY 00" to "PORKY 08", implying they were made at the Chimera Lab. When you're first in the Chimera Lab, you can find that in one room, there's a projector displaying an image of a "Creature that you've never seen before", but due to the angle of the projection, you as the player can't see what it looks like. If you go back to the lab after Salsa de-activates the Ultimate Chimera, you'll find a Scientist in front of the projector who'll explain that the creature is a Mr. Saturn, the same creatures from EarthBound, and that they've constructed a village to the East of the lab and talk in an unusual way. When you go to the Theater in Chapter 8, you'll find a guy who says that "Your leader is locked up in the MI Hotels", but Lucas and the others have no idea what he means. After you go through the sewers and reach the hotels, you then see he was talking about Leder, who was imprisoned there by the Pigmasks.

I Let Gwen Stacy Die: As it's implied by the Tanetane Island trip, one can argue that Lucas blames himself for his brother's death, since while Claus told him not to go with him knowing the dangers, Lucas still didn't stop him from going on the journey that killed him. Same goes for Flint and Hinawa.

Continuity Nod: Both of the previous games in the series are repeatedly referenced, most notably on the boat ride in New Pork City. Also, of course, the fact that the theater in New Pork City plays a film consisting of the important moments from EarthBound. There are also three residents of Tazmily who look like Jeff, Paula, and Picky. In the Chimera Laboratory, you can find the book "Overcoming Shyness" and, of course, the hilarious magazine excerpt from the $7,500 hovel in Onett. Dr. Andonuts is first found in the Chimera Laboratory hiding in a trashcan, much like how Lloyd was first met on the rooftop of Twinkle Elementary. One of the Saturns in Saturn Valley sells Strawberry Tofu (which was previously localized as Trout Yogurt). Porky's room in Thunder Tower has a few too. The Teddy Bears that were NPC party members in EarthBound ("You almost feel like it could take your place for you"), and a jukebox that plays the shop and hotel themes from EarthBound. And, on a sadder note:

Parental Neglect: Flint to Lucas, unintentionally so. He's so desperate to find his older son, Claus, that he barely comes home to look after Lucas. At the end he takes two deadly hits to protect Lucas from the Masked Man's attacks, showing that he does care for him as much.

comment
Fight Woosh: Like EarthBound before it, it comes in three colors depending on how you start the batttle. The blue woosh means that the battle will go on as normal. Sneak up behind an enemy to get a green woosh and surprise attack. Red wooshes are when the enemy sneaks up behind you and gets a surprise attack on you! The blue woosh is also used for Boss Battles, but with a different, more dramatic tune.

In Their Own Image: If the Big Bad had his way, the world would be recreated as a world of nothing, essentially. This is due to Claus, remade into a chimera and Porky's puppet as the Masked Man, being so brainwashed that when the Magypsies try to determine what kind of heart he has they simply see nothing there. The Big Bad is aware of this fact, and welcomes it.

Near-Villain Victory: Chapter 8 is basically a race against time between Lucas and Porky for who can find and pull the last Needle that'll determine if the world is destroyed or reborn. The Masked Man reaches the Final Needle first, and Lucas nearly dies against the Masked Man because he can't bring himself to attack his brother. Thankfully, Hinawa gets Claus to remember who he is, leaving Lucas to pull the last needle.

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: King P invites and takes you to New Pork City, the location of the final needle. A bit later, he drops you down to the underground area containing it. Had he not done either of those things, he would probably have had the final needle all to himself. It's almost as if he wanted as if he wanted to lose. For some strange reason, instead of pulling the Last Needle when he gets there before your party, the Masked Man just kneels there until you show up.

Face–Heel Turn: Though the actual turn isn't seen in-game, it is suddenly made clear that Fassad may have once been Locria, one of the seven Magypsies, and secretly allied himself with the Pigmask Army. Later, it's revealed that Claus has one of these, although this was against his will. And then there's Dr. Andonuts from the previous game, though that was also against his will and he gets his revenge in the end. Isaac becomes a Pigmask in Chapter 8. Although he doesn't do anything evil, he says he'd have to be your enemy if you did anything to oppose Porky.

Abusive Parents: Old Man Wess constantly berates Duster, calls him "moron" more often than his real name, and it's strongly implied he's the reason Duster walks with a limp. When the party is hallucinating on Tanetane Island, Lucas gets a vision of his father threatening to beat him. It's fairly unlikely that this has actually happened to him in real life, but it's apparently something he's deeply afraid of.

Fate Worse than Death: It honestly doesn't get much worse than being trapped in a tiny capsule, completely alone, with absolutely no way of getting out for all of eternity.

Cosmic Plaything: Pretty much everybody on the good side. Lucas especially takes the brunt of this.

Intellectual Animal: Quite a lot of them, but especially Boney. It actually makes Porky's plans seem a lot more sinister the more you think about it.

Previous Player-Character Cameo: There's a film in New Pork City depicting actual scenes from EarthBound at one point, obviously prominently featuring Ness and company.

Flushing-Edge Interactivity: Surprisingly averted. Chapter 8 has a whole toilet dungeon, but none of the toilets there can be flushed.

The quirky, like this game isn't enough, "all-you-can-pee" dungeon floor. Potty Emergencies can happen here from your fellow NPC's, understandably enough that this game, even the series, lampshaded on.
