Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 12th, 2010 | MOTHER 3, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

EelSlimeTime on the MOTHER 3 GameFAQs posted about a neat little bug in MOTHER 3 I never heard about anywhere before, so I made a video of it:

Basically, go to Tanetane Island and get one of those fevers you get before learning a PSI technique. Go into the sludge pit and Boney won’t join you. Walk around until the fever goes away, then go into the PSI menu and then exit back out. Lucas will have turned into Boney!

The effect lasts until you go into any menus or get into a battle. But if you save the game and restart, the Lucas = Boney thing will still be intact. I don’t know of any helpful uses for this bug, but it’s still neat. I haven’t tested it with the Japanese version of the game, but it sounds a lot like the skull gift box glitch, so my money is it being in the original game too.

The sludge Mutated him

I think he’s a temporary Shang Tsung. If you don’t get it, play Mortal Kombat.

It’s like the ooze that mutated the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
…only it turns humans into dogs. Hm.

Does it work with Kumatora too (I doubt it I’m just asking.)

NeonSquid said on Aug. 13, 2010

Lol, why the hell did the game do that anyway?

Hi it’s me, I just wanted to note that I haven’t played the translation and I found this on my Japanese hard copy, so it’s definitely in the original game.

one day,a kid named lucas steped into slome toxic waste while having a fever…the toxic waste turned him into a dog. later,a frog saved his life by saving! owo

Oh my gosh, that is hilarious! 😀 I like the toxic waste theory, motherman. Hey, if a mutated spider can create Spiderman, why not toxic sludge making a person turn into his dog? Maybe THAT’s why Boney stayed out of the sludge, so that Duster and Kumatora could stay human. 😀

Gotta love funny glitches 🙂

random guardian said on Aug. 15, 2010

sorry 🙁 i just think that you have to have quite a freak series of events to discover it by accident

Starstormer said on Aug. 15, 2010

It looks like Lucas has been living a double life… at the same time as his other life.

Axl-fox said on Aug. 15, 2010

Lucas is secretly a Were-dog

^ Weredog? No such-AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO… I’M BONEY!

Mother Bound said on Feb. 8, 2011

Um…Uh…Uhm….Yes.

These kinds of glitches remind me of World -1 and MissingNo. It’s more unbelievable on how they ended up finding it, rather than the actual effect. (Okay, the effect is still kinda crazy, but still.)

@EelSlimeTime: Wow, by accident? That’s ridiculous!
