Earthbound Hints for SNES
It's actually a nifty little thing that goes missed.
Using Jeff's "Spy" command, you can view an enemy's stats...and steal an item?
Spy also steals the item from an enemy, if they're holding one. But it does not raise the chances of the enemy holding an item.
It can be quite useful in certain cases.
If you show your Backstage Pass at Topolla Theater,
you'll get quite a funny little reaction.
It doesn't effect the game, but it's a nice little Easter egg.
Many people get confused on how to beat the final boss, Giygas.
He's simple really.
Beat Pokey at the begining, then attack Giygas until Pokey comes back to mock you some more.
After that, use Paula's Prayer option 9 times.
Don't stop if you think you should. After that, he should be defeated.
Just remember to keep Paula alive to defeat him.
So these are the rarest items that enemies drop. Some are useful, some are pointless. But I'll list all the items anyway.
These have 1/128% chance of being found.
Skate Punk = Pizza (Onnet)
Attack Slug = Bomb (Giant Step, Rainy Circle Cave)
Territorial Oak = PSI Caramel (Peaceful Rest Valley)
Insane Cultist = PSI Caramel (Happy Happy Village)
Plain Crocodile = Meteornium (Grapefruit Falls)
Violent Roach = Secret Herb (Grapefruit Falls/ Tunnel to Saturn Valley)
Smilin' Sphere = Meteornium (Dusty Dunes Desert)
Mad Taxi = Xterminator Spray (Fourside, Summers)
Musica = Sudden Guts Pill (Fourside Department Store)
Dali's Clock = PSI Caramel (Moonside, Dungeon Man)
Enraged Fire Plug = Sudden Guts Pill (Moonside)
Mighty Bear Seven = Super Plush Bears (Winters/Stonehenge)
Manly Fish's Brother = Horn of Life (Deep Darkness)
Whirling Robo = Meteotite (Winters [invaded])
Military Octobot = Meteotite (Stonehenge)
Starman = Brain Food Lunch (Stonehenge)
Starman Super = Sword of Kings (Stonehenge)
Conducting Spirit = Brain Food Lunch (Lumine Hall)
Chomposaur = Magic Frying Pan (Lost Underworld)
Major Psychic Psycho = Star Pendant (Fire Spring)
Uncontrollable Sphere = Broken Antenna (Magicant)
Mechanical Octobot = Meteotite (Onnet [invaded])
Ghost of Starman = Goddess Ribbon (Onnet [invaded], Cave of the Past)
Bionic Kraken = Gutsy Bat (Cave of the Past)
The Gutsy Bat is NOT found in Magicant, the EB Player's Guide was wrong.
It's found in the Cave of the Past.
A faster way to get your pizza when purchased is to simply save your game, and restart.
It'll save a little time, if you're eager fpr some thin crust.
In the Dusty Dunes Desert, after you finish your trip from Threed, there is a big opportunity to gain a good amount of experience points. There's an enemy around known as the Criminal Caterpillar, and though he's hard to find, he'll be worth finding. For just killing him, you gain 30384 exp., while the Bad Buffalo, who gives the 2nd highest amount of exp. Only gives a measly 4108 exp.! And the Caterpillar isn't hard to beat at all. Good luck leveling up!
