For years I’ve heard of a bug in MOTHER 1 that lets you keep EVE the robot permanently in your party, but I never really looked into it. Luckily, BBGangZombie’s investigated it and made a video about it! Apparently the bug only occurs in the Famicom version of the game, not in EarthBound Zero or MOTHER 1+2. You basically just use the Flea Bag on R7038XX, which makes it so it can’...Read More »

Recently someone asked if there’s a code to keep Buzz Buzz in your party. This is really simple to do if you know EarthBound hacking, so I made a Game Genie code for it: F0EB-0FB9 After you leave Pokey’s house after Buzz Buzz’s death… you’ll still have Buzz Buzz with you! Note: This code will work with most EarthBound ROMs out there, but for some headerless ROMs it w...Read More »

There’s a trick you can do in MOTHER / EarthBound Zero (or possibly just the GBA port, I’m not really sure) where you can fight the final boss with just Ninten: Basically, when the little scene where you’d normally dance with Ana starts, use the Onyx Hook to warp to Magicant. Ninten will be the only one in your party at the time, so you’ll be able to go around and do stuff...Read More »

For years I’ve known about a supposed game-breaking bug in MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero but never really looked into it. Apparently, you can get to the final battle somehow without getting all the melodies, at which point you obviously can’t beat the game. I first heard about this on this page back in the late 90s/early 00s. I wasn’t really into the game at the time so I didn’t...Read More »

This is probably old news to many fans, but there’s a well-known glitch that happens if you’re diamondized in EarthBound and the photo guy takes your picture: Basically, for a split second you cease to be diamondized but then go back to it immediately afterward. It’s just a neat thing to do sometimes if you’ve played the game a million times before 😛 ...Read More »

A few years ago I made a video about how to skip the Starman Junior at the start of EarthBound. Apparently I never shared it on EarthBound Central, so here it is! Basically, you have an enemy follow you up to the top of the hillside, making sure that it’s still on-screen during the whole scene where you find Picky and Buzz Buzz. Afterward, you let that enemy kill you. You’ll be taken ...Read More »

By now, many fans of MOTHER 3 know about the debug room that lets you go to key points throughout the game. Lesser known is that there are similar points elsewhere in the game that let you jump to specific parts of Chapter 7. Basically, under unknown conditions, Magypsy sprites show up in some locations, and if you talk to them you can choose where in Chapter 7 to go. I first became aware of this...Read More »

While looking through some old magazine scans, I stumbled upon this trick in MOTHER 2 that I never heard of before. I don’t know if it works in EarthBound, but I bet that it does. It’s not much of a useful trick, just a glitch if anything. Basically, the game will pull the wrong item out of Tracy’s storage if you do things a certain way. Steps: Fill your party members’ in...Read More »

There are sentry robots in the Monotoli Building in EarthBound, and usually there are some you can’t avoid getting into battle with. It turns out that if you use Skip Sandwiches and time things just right, you CAN get past them! The video above was done using some hackery to jump straight to that portion of the game without having to play through everything, that’s why Jeff isn’...Read More »

For some reason, dying in EarthBound is sometimes glitchy, as we’ve seen in past posts. Here’s another glitch that can apparently happen somehow: Off the top of my head, here’s another dying glitch: Simultaneous defeat glitch If you’ve run into any weird stuff like this before, let me know! I love hearing about how people make games screw up without trying 😛 ...Read More »
