Version 1.1 Table of Contents 1.Intro 2.Walkthrough 3.Hints 4.Boss Guide 5.Legal stuff 1. Intro So you’ve never heard of EarthBound? Well it’s a fun game if you’re an RPG fan. Also a true RPG fan would realize that it is different from regular RPGs. It is like real Earth. You have things like ATM cards to get money. Weapons are things like bats or fry pans. Defenses are like hats and bracelets. If you haven’t played this game you should rent it. I’ve played it over and over and I still like it. New things happen every time. Here are a few things I thought about adding. There are two different ways to play. 1.One way is to go through the game fighting as little enemies as possible. Only fight the bosses. This is for experienced players only. 2.Fight lots of guys and gather up experience points. You get a lot of presents this way. Any other Questions? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. 2. Walkthrough This is a basic walkthrough of the game. Onett 1.Leave Ness’s house and go talk to Pokey at the meteorite. He will say to go home so go home and talk to your mom. 2. Pokey will knock on the door and ask you to look for Pickey with him. Talk to your mom, get the cracked bat and equip it. Talk to the dog and he’ll come with you. Go to the door, then the phone will ring. Answer it, he says to call him on your adventure to save your game. Finally you can leave. 3.Head for the meteorite. You will meet one of the first enemies in the game. You will notice that the dog is a better fighter than Pokey. Pokey is just a wimp. He usually hides or begs for forgiveness. 4.At the meteorite talk to Pickey, and he’ll say some garbage. Walk by the meteorite and Buzz Buzz will join you after he talks. 5.Head for Pokey’s house. On the way Starman Jr. will attack you. This is a freebie because you can’t die. After he is beaten go to Pokey’s house and the parents will be home. Pokey and Pickey will get punished. Then the mom will kill Buzz Buzz. Just before he dies you get the sound stone. 6.Now is the beginning of Onett. You have to beat Frank. Before you do you do you should stop by the hide out and get the Baseball cap. Its defense will make it easier. Mini Boss Fight- Frank. Just keep your HP up. For more info check out Boss Guide. 7.After Frank Fly is reformed get the key to the shack from the mayor and go beat Titanic Ant. Boss Fight-Titanic Ant. This is the first sanctuary boss. It’s easy at level nine. After he is beaten collect the melody. 8.Leave. A Cop will meet you. Do what he says, go to the police station. You will have to fight 4 cops then Captain Strong Mini-Boss fight-Cops. You fight 4 of 5 then Captain Strong. 9.Leave Onett. Twoson 1.Welcome to Twoson they got their name because they weren’t first. 2.Go to the Apple Kid’s house and give him $200.00 (its worth it). Don’t pay the Orange Kid, he is just a rip off. 3. After you get the receiver phone go to the iron pencil in Peace Valley (to the west of Twoson by Polestar Preschool). Check the pencil and go back to Burglin Park and meet Apple Kid. He will give you the pencil eraser. 4. Go back to the iron pencil and use the pencil eraser on it. You can go now and head to Happy Happy Village. 5.Go meet Paula in a house through the cave up north. Get the Franklin Badge and go out you will face some insane cultists and one crow. 6.Go to the church and make your way through the maze. There is a tip here. All the people moving their legs will talk. You will have to fight once if you go the correct way first. Then face Carpainter. BOSS FIGHT-Carpainter. You have to have the badge to fight him or the lightning will put you in the barn with a couple of guys. 7.Get the key, save Paula and go fight the Mondo Mole. BOSS FIGHT-Mondo Mole-You need a high level like 20 for Ness. It is a lot easier. 8.Head home with Paula. Take her to the Polestar Preschool. When you leave go talk to Everdred in Burglin Park. You could have fought him earlier if wanted. He will give you 10,000 dollars. Use it free the Runaway Five. Then you will be able to ride their bus to Threed. Threed 1. After the Runaway Five drops you off, head for the graveyard in the northwest corner of Threed. At the northern most point, talk to the zombies then head for the hotel. You will see a girl. Follow her and you will get knocked out by a bunch of zombies. Wake up in some cave room and walk to the door. It will be locked. Winters 1. Paula will use PSI to communicate with Jeff through her mind. Follow her directions and head south. 2. Tony will join you while you’re in the boarding school. Go down stairs and talk to this guy. He will give you the key to the locker that doesn’t work. Talk to him again and you’ll get a bad key machine. Then he’ll tell you about saving. After you get things from the locker you can leave. 3. Go to the drug store to get the Bubble Monkey. Buy a piece of gum to get him to come with you. 4. Head south through Winters. You will meet people in tents who let you rest for free! You will get to a lake. Spend the night in a tent. When you wake up the wind will blow and the sun will shine. 5. Go to the small peninsula thing and the monkey will ask for a piece of gum, the game automatically gives him one. Then you will ride Tessie to the south shore. 6. After a second of walking you will get to Brick Road’s Dungeon. The bottom route is the correct way to go. At the end Brick Road will let you take a rest. There is a stun gun in his cave. After you get it save your game. 7. This is the last part of Winters. Pond cave is a tough cave if you don’t have the stun gun. Make your way through it and get to Dr. Andonuts lab. There is a hole in the center of the Stonehenge. Don’t go into it. You will come back later for it. 8. In the lab fly in the Sky Runner to Threed. Threed (continued) 2.

He says the pizza man will deliver the zombie paper. Walk around and you’ll get it. Go and place it in the circus tent. Then spend the night in the hotel. 5. During the night you would have seen some zombies go to the paper. The zombies guarding the underground passage will leave. Now you can go to Saturn Valley, so go there. 6. In the passage you will fight many zombies. At the end you will fight Slimy Little Pig. Mini Boss Fight- Slimy Little Pig. This guy is easy though he makes you cry. 7. Head up to Saturn Valley. 7.

You have to pay to see the manager. She tells you the band owes $1million! Then she says you’d have to find buried gold. If you fed the miner in the desert he says he’d give you gold so go there, after you see the show of course. 3. After you make it to the Miner in the southeast end of the desert, you will notice the hole is bigger if you gave him food. If not, give him food and spend the night. In the morning the hole will be bigger. 4. Go inside the hole and the man will tell you about the five big moles. Find them and kill them! Mini-Boss Fight- Moles. These guys all say they’re third strongest, and they are. They have the same amount of HP. 5. Head back to Fourside. On the way, the miner’s brother will give you a diamond. Use it to pay the manager at the theater. 6. Watch the last song and then go to the department store. It will be open. Get some stuff and as you leave and alien will steel Paula. Go to the fourth floor and kill the alien. BOSS FIGHT-Department Store Spook. He says Paula is at the Monotoli Building after you beat him. Use strong attacks. 7. Go over to Jackie’s Café. Talk to the women under the lamp. After you talk go outside and talk to a dirty kid. Give him something then talk to Everdred. He will tell you to check the shelf behind the counter. 8. After you check the shelf you will end up in Moonside. Yes means no and no means yes there. Look around the south part for the Monotoli Building. There is a captain guy there. Talk to him then go to the hotel. 9. There is a man in front of the hotel or hospital that looks like a strong Hawaiian. Talk to him and he will warp you to another. Talk to him and another then you will see no more. There is a regular looking guy who will do that now. Talk to him and say no. You will end up in a doorless room. 10. Talk to the all black man and say no. Then talk to the guy with a Mohawk. He will say get out and you end up in the Hotel room. 11. Go back to that captain man by the Monotoli building you will see Mr. Monotoli and he will go out of illusion land. Then check the statue. BOSS FIGHT-Mani Mani Statue. This guy isn’t too tough if you know what you’re doing. 12. After you exit the warehouse Apple Kid will call you. He said he sent a yogurt dispenser by Escargo Express Neglected Class. Exit the café and a monkey will teleport to you. Talk to him and he says to meet him in the hole at the west end of Dusty Dunes Desert. Then the deliveryman will tell you he left the yogurt thing in the desert. Then Pokey’s maid Electra says she heard you talking about trout flavored yogurt. Go get the yogurt machine and give it to her at the Monotoli Building. 13. The yogurt thing is in the monkey’s hole. Make your way through the maze. You should come with a skip sandwich and picnic lunch. That starts you through the maze. After you make it to a room with a floating guy and 1 monkey, talk to the guy and he’ll tell you about teleportation and give you the yogurt thing. Talk to the monkey, exit the cave and meet the monkey on the road. He will teach you teleportation. 14. Teleport to Fourside and give the yogurt dispenser to Electra. Now you can go to the 48th floor. Make your way to the Clumsy Robot. BOSS FIGHT-Clumsy Robot. Just attack this guy. Don’t worry about his HP switch, the Runaway Five will flip it and he’ll die. 15. Save Paula and talk to Mr. Monotoli. He will let Paula join you and tell you about the cryptic messages appearing because of the Mani Mani Statue. He will open the Helicopter Pad door so you can walk to the helicopter. Pokey will somehow beat you to it and insult you again. 16. Head to the exit and Paula will have some phycic thing. She says you need to go to Threed. The Runaway Five will drive you there. Then go to where the Sky Runner crashed and Jeff will fix it now. Then you fly to the lab. 17. After you land go to Rainy Circle. Beat Shroom. BOSS FIGHT-Shroom. This guy will put mushrooms on your head. Watch out your PSI could affect you! 18. Use the Sky Runner to get to Summers. Summers 1. Head to the east until you get to port town Toto. 2. Look in every building until you see an Indian looking guy. He will give you the phone number for the Stoic Club. 3. After you leave Tony (Jeff’s Bud) will call you he will ask for YOUR name. Put your name in the space he has provided. 4. Call the club and go there. Talk to the guy at the table by himself. Then talk to the woman by the entrance. She will say to meet her by a cart by the beach later. After you exit, go right a little ways and you‘ll see her. Talk to her and she’ll give you some magic cake! Dalamm 1. Take Poo to the south of Dalamm. Go to the palace of emptiness. Climb to the top and sit there. Ignore everyone. When the spirit guy comes, say yes to everything. 2. After you complete the training, go to your master and Poo’s level will go up. Then he will teleport to Summers. Summers (continued) 5. Go to the museum and you can now go to the hieroglyphics room. Beat the two guys and you will get the hieroglyph copy. Poo will have the idea to go to Scaraba since it tells how to get into the pyramid. 6. Before you go to Scaraba, teleport to Fourside. There is a sanctuary here. Go to the museum and talk to the man by the door. Then go to the theater. Watch Venus do her dance then get the signed banana. Now go back to the museum and give the guy it. 7. Go to the shining spot by walking in the nasty looking water until you see it. You have to fight the Plague Rat of Doom. BOSS FIGHT-Plague Rat of Doom. This guy does a lot a Smaaaash hits. 8. Get the carrot key and teleport to Dalamm for its sanctuary. Use the key on the bunny statues and enter. 9. Make your way to the Thunder and Storm. BOSS FIGHT-This guy has a lot of HP but he is easy. 10.Now you can return to Summers. 11.Get $80 and go over to Toto and talk to the captain by the stairs. He will take you to Scaraba, but on the way you have to fight Kraken. Mini Boss Fight- Kraken. He is easy but watch out for his tornado attack. Scaraba 1. Look around and then head south to the Great Pyramid. On the hieroglyph copy it tells the dance but here’s how. Start from the top and make a star. 2. Enter after you open the door, and make your way to the far east. Finally you’ll reach a dead end and there will be a switch. Step on it and head to the casket. There will be a hole now so jump down. Get the Hawk Eye and go on. When you make it to the exit the Star Master will take Poo away to teach him Starstorm. 3. Get the key from a tanned guy and then go northwest. You will see a big statue man. Use the key to go in. Make your way to the face by going through the maze. When you talk to the face he says he’ll control the body to fight with you. 4. After you leave through the hole, He will follow you. He is strong in fights. Head south and Dungeon Man will get caught in the trees. Go east and find a man. He tells you about Deep Darkness. 5. Return to Dungeon Man and go the same way except at the top, go down the goodbye exit. When you end up on the cliff go up to the junk place. Check the submarine and Jeff will fix it. Then you will sail to Deep Darkness. Deep Darkness 1. Head south at first. When you get to the dark part use the Hawk Eye. Then it will be light. 2. Find your way to Master Barf the red guy. Then you have to have a fair fight. BOSS FIGHT- Master Barf. This time fly honey won’t help. You have to get sick. 3. Poo returns with his new Starstorm as you saw in the fight. Now go to the Tenda Village. Tenda Village 1. Talk to everyone and you’ll notice there all shy except one. The hotel owner and the leader are the only other talkers. The leader will tell you about a book that can cure shyness. It is only a roomer though. 2. This place is a dead end for now so leave. The Apple Kid will call you and tell you he is in Winters working on the Eraser Eraser. Then someone will come and get him. 3. Teleport to Winters and head for the lab. The mouse will give you the Eraser Eraser so you can go far down into the Stonehenge. That is where the Apple Kid is where the Apple Kid is. It is a long walk and some aliens are down there for you to fight. 4. After you make it to the room where the Apple Kid and other people are, go and fight Starman Deluxe in the next room. BOSS FIGHT- Starman DX. This guy has an attack that can kill everyone in one blow. Put up power shields fast. 5. Talk to the Apple Kid. He’ll tell you the Book of Shyness is in the Onett Library. Go there and get it and then return with it to Tenda Village. 6. Give the Tenda Leader the book. He will read it to everyone. The next morning the Tendas will talk. The tribe’s leader will give you a Tandakraut and a Bag of Dragonite if you talk to him twice. 7. Talk to the strong guy and he’ll open the rock for you so you can go to the Lost Underworld. Head down there and you will see some big rocks. Talk to them and get some good info. 8. After a while of searching you will see the shining spot. You will have to fight Electro Specter. BOSS FIGHT-Are you noticing something? There are more Boss Fights now. All the enemies are tough, especially this one. 9. The entrance to the Underworld or Labyrinth is in the Lumine Hole. You will see Ness’s thoughts appear on the wall. Then head for the hole! Lost Underworld 1. Finally you’re here. You will notice that you are smaller, well actually the area is bigger. Look for the treating Hot Springs. 2. Go to the Tenda Village 2. They will let you in and steel the tendakraut. The smell of it leave’s the group though. In there area talk to the rock, he has good info. After you’ve done what you want, head west then south to fire spring. 3. Go into the cave. Hey, you’re big again. Use the spring near by to reenergize. Find a good path to the top and fight the 2nd hardest guy in the game, Carbon and Diamond Dog. BOSS FIGHT-Diamond Dog. After you take the flames off Carbon Dog, take in the harder guy Diamond Dog. 4. If you beat him, get your reward. It’s two things actually, the Fire Spring and a vacation for one to Magicant. That one is Ness. 5. Look around, it’s pretty cool. When you’re ready head north to the center of the Sea if Eden. On the way you fight really funky guys. Some only have one or two attacks. Those are the harder guys! 6. When you’re in the Sea of Eden, fight Kraken and you could be REALY lucky and get the Gutsy Bat. If anyone gets it please E-mail me. Now you’re ready to fight Ness’s Nightmare. BOSS FIGHT- Try to outlast this statue by using a weapon he doesn’t have, an inventory! 7. After you beat this fairly hard guy, you will get 200,000 Exp. for no reason. You will also learn Teleport Beta! Then you will wake up in Fire Spring, and the sound stone will disappear. You will also teleport to Saturn Valley. Saturn Valley 1. Talk to Dr. Andonuts and get in the Saturn machine. It will not work because you need Zexonyte, an unearthly element. The dr. asks if you seen a meteorite and you say yes, of course. 2. Teleport to Onett and go to the meteorite. Giygas has put it under terror and only one door is open, Ness’s. 3. There are new guys here. Just go to the meteorite and get the zexonyte. Then teleport back to Saturn Valley and give the zexonyte to Dr. Andonuts. Then rest and go in. You will warp to a place in a cave in the Lost Underworld. 4. Go to the other side and Poo’s Star Master will give him Starstorm Omega. Go to the other side and Dr. Andonuts and the Apple kid will appear. This new prototype will take you to the past, but first you have to turn into a robot. 5. If you say yes you will appear in the time machine. All you do now is head to Giygas and beat him. BOSS FIGHT-Giygas. This is a long battle. First Giygas has a shield so get rid of Pokey. Then he will turn off the Devil’s Machine and you can attack. 3. Hints Here are some hints that I’ve found about the game. Some aren’t in the book! 1. In Onett get you’re level to 8 before you fight Frank. Do that by beating the shark people. 2. In Twoson the hotel is costly so get a Mushroom on your head and sell it. You get $50! 3. There are a few people in the game that when you talk to it says “(There’s no Reply)” Those guys don’t move there legs. 4. There are some guys that give away presents after they’re beaten. Some give stupid things like cookies while others give away special weapons or things Jeff can fix. 5. This is a hint a lot of people mistake. There is no present that gives the Broken Antenna away. It is not a Parabolic. The only guy in the game that has it is the Uncontrollable Sphere on the way to the Lumine Hole in the Tenda Village. 6. The Super Starman also has a good present, the Sword of Kings. It is the only weapon in the game that Poo can equip and it raises his offense. 7. Getting special presents is very hard. Jeff’s spy command will help you get presents that are hard to get. I don’t exactly know why but it works. Usually only on Poo’s sword of the Broken Antenna. 8. In Fourside, when you get to the Department store and Paula is captured, go to the top trying to fight as little enemies as possible. Do this by tricking the people on the 2nd floor by walking to the right, then up, then to the escalator. There is hardly ever anyone on the third floor. The fourth floor you fight at the stairs and then go to the far bottom of the screen and go behind the toys. Then rush to the door. 9. In Deep Darkness there is a monkey that wants to learn teleportation. If you teach him you get the monkey’s love. 10. In the Lost Underworld there are two more special presents. They are the Magic Fry Pan and the Star Pendant. The Star Pendant is one of the best defense items. Chomposour or the purple dinosaur has the Magic Fry Pan. The purple fire guy is the one that has the Star Pendant. 4. Boss Guide 1.Frank Fly- This is the first boss. If you get attacked you should refill HP right away. If you wait until level 8, you can use PSI alpha on him. 2. Frankymark 2- This guy is easy. He has to blow steam every other attack. You can refill HP then. After a minute he dies. 3. Titanic Ant- This is the first sanctuary boss. He uses defense down and physical attacks mostly. Use PSI special on him. It will also kill the little bugs. Use PSI to keep your HP up. You should fight him at level 9. 4. Cops- These guys have all the same amount of HP. You fight four of them, the last one wimps out. 5. Captain Strong- After you fight the four cops, you have to fight this guy. Use PSI special as your main attack. Watch out for his submission holds. 6. Everdred- This guy is easy. Like Captain Strong use PSI special as your main attack. He will be defeated easily. You will be rewarded with huge experience points. 7. Carpainter- He uses lightning. If you have the Franklin Badge the lightning will reflect back at him. He can only take two hits of this and he goes back to normal. 8. Mondo Mole- This guy is so easy. Use paralysis and he won’t be able to move. Then you can bash him. He does have Lifeup though so he can use that. 9. Boogie Tent- Use fire as your main attack. If you have a Big Bottle Rocket, that will do. 10. Slimy Little Pig- His main attack is to make you cry. He will attack you rarely. He is pretty strong too. You can also use fire on him. 11. Master Belch- If you have fly honey that you have to get, Use it and he will grab it and chow down. Then he will not attack you. 12. Trillionge Sprout- Go wild with PSI. He is weak to fire and special. Also some strong attacks like Big Bottle Rockets. 13. Big Mole- There are five of these. PSI freeze and Special Beta. That should kill them. Don’t physically attack them or his shield will deflect it back to you. 14. Department Store Spook- This guy is tough. Use Big Bottle Rockets and PSI special to send this guy to another dimension. Watch out for freeze and fire. It does major damage. 15. Mani Mani Statue- This guy has strong defenses. Use PSI and super bombs to weaken him. He really doesn’t have strong defenses. 16. Plague Rat of Doom- This is one strong rat! He has a lot of smaaash hits. He is very weak to fire. You might want to build a shield of light to weaken attacks. 17. Thunder and Storm- Weather boy is very weak to freeze. It will only take seconds to kill him with it. Also Flash gamma may kill him in one shot! 18. Kraken- Kraken is also weak to freeze. Watch for those nasty tornado attacks. They are a killer. If you’re strong, bashing works well. This is the exact same for the Kraken in the Sea of Eden. 19. Guardian General- He has defenses way up there. I’m talking like on the moon. PSI Freeze should do the trick. Ness is the best attacker so use him to attack. 20. Master Barf- This time Belchy boy won’t take the fly honey. You’ll have to take the dizziness of nausea! After a while Poo will come back and use his new starstorm on him. 21. Starman DX- Build up a shield really fast. Starstorm will kill everyone in one blow except Ness. Use a Multi Bottle Rocket and it should kill him in one shot. 22. Electro Spector- This guy isn’t too hard. Build a power shield and the fight should be easy. Just watch out for thunder, it penetrates shields. You can also use the counter PSI unit. 23. Carbon Dog/Diamond Dog- This is the first layer fight. The only other layer fight is Giygas. First you start out with Carbon Dog, You should use freeze as your main attack. Also put up Poo’s Shield Omega. The fireballs take a lot of damage out of the party. After a while Carbon Dog will give off a rainbow of light and turn into a diamond. Now you have to fight an even harder Diamond Dog. He is still the same enemy. Next time listen better in science class. This is one tough dog. He has no basic weakness. If you want to do physical attacks then use Jeff’s Shield Killer. You can also fire two or three multi bottle rockets. That will finish him. Just use everything you’ve got. He’s not impossible. 24. Ness’s Nightmare- There is a big trick to this guy. Have anything to restore PP. Some guy sells magic pudding it at the shop in Magicant. Then when you fight him let him use up his PP on you by defending. Use Lifeup when needed. The magic pudding will restore your PP if you need more for Lifeup. After a while he will run out of PP and then you can attack 25. Giygas- Don’t pass out, this guy isn’t too hard. Use Paula to build a power shield. Use Sigma not Omega otherwise Giygas’s PSI will reflect to him and his shield will reflect it back to hit you! That is not fair though. Keep attacking Pokey. One cool thing is to us Brainshock Omega and both Giygas and Pokey will feel strange. Pokey will make Giygas’s guts and other things go down with his stinky thing. Giygas will attack Pokey and himself but his shield will reflect it on one of the party members. Well keep attacking Pokey and strengthening the shield. Use magnet if you need PP. The second part of the fight is easy. Just attack Giygas with all you’ve got. Lifeup Omega is good to have. On the last part use Paula to pray 11 times and the others to defend, heal, or lifeup. Then you will have him beaten. Good Luck. 5. Legal Crud Don’t copy any of this. I don’t care if you use it as code but none of this FAQ. Some info is common knowledge and I don’t care if you put that though. Some may be from the codebook that comes with the game. Basically don’t put any of my found secrets on your FAQ.
