EARTHBOUND Mother (NINTENDO FAMICOM 1989) VGA 85 ARCHIVAL CASE

Tips for Buying EarthBound

October 2nd, 2013 | EarthBound, Images

I usually don’t post “this random thing looks like an EarthBound character” stuff as much as I used to, but a few readers recently sent in news about a character in Natsume’s “Hometown Story” that seems kind of noteworthy. This is a character named Anna:

She looks a lot like Paula to people, and I can see it too. In fact, if I hadn’t known this was for some other game, I would’ve mistaken this for EarthBound fan art or something. Still, I feel it’s just a coincidence – it seems like this is a Japanese “pretty blonde girl” sort of pattern more than a reference to any MOTHER games.

…But it’d be cool if she were inexplicably able to start fires or summon lightning or something like that 😛

And her name is Anna. Like Ana from Mother 1.
Wow.

I don’t see it. To much designs on her clothes, and she doesn’t even have her red bow. Just looks like and average little girl in pink dress. :/

@Earthbounder

You can’t deny there are plenty of similarities. The dress is the same length and color, and so is the hair. And though it’s not a bow, she has a distinctly red hair accessory.\

The main reason they’re similar though is that Paula herself is so simple that any girl the same size and color scheme is bound to strike a resemblance.

Similar, but Paula’s design is pretty generic in itself. A light-skinned girl with blonde hair wearing a red ribbon and a pink dress. Really, you can find any number of similar-looking characters in almost any shojo manga.

The selling point for was her name was Anna. That’s what made me question if it was a reference.

It would be fun if actually that character was based on Paula (or Ana) from the MOTHER series XDDD

I agree with WhatsHerFace. Paula design is just TO generic. Pretty cool though.

If she uses a frying pan for self-defense, I wouldn’t be surprised…
