Top Ten Worst Things About Earthbound


The Top TenXW

1Bad Graphics

What? Come on. Graphics don't make a game. Sure, there's like 2 frames for each pose but seriously... I think it's just to save memory.

2Bad Soundtrack

Earthbound had a great soundtrack. Listen to Onett and you can understand.


What? Ness is one of my favorite characters ever!

4Bad Name

Mother may not be the best name ever, but Earthbound is pretty catchy.

5Cliche Plot

It's honestly not that cliche. Sure, aliens invading the world is generic but Buzz Buzz, a bug who came from 10 years in the future... Pokey, a brainwashed annoying 13 year old neighbor... it's really not that bad.

Earthbound isn't bad. But the plot is cliche for the 80s/90s.
The year is 199X...
It's a story of apocalypse happening on year 2000 with aliens invading the world, it is pretty cliche.


Lucas has great character development in mother 3, Also he makes no appearance in earthbound. I really don't like who ever made this list.

Lucas is not in Earthbound, he is in Mother 3. Get your facts straight.

Whoever hates Lucas should go play brawl

7This List

Whoever made this list must have not played Earthbound.

Seriously, all of those reasons don't have any sense.

How is this not number 1

And this list should not even be considered part of EarthBound.

8Ness Is In Brawl

Ness being in Smash Bros is one of the best things that's happened.

Irrelevant to Earthbound itself, this is about the game, not Ness the character.

The Contenders

11A Characters Name Is Poo

Fun fact: You can change his name to something other than Poo. Somebody either hasn't played EarthBound or just disregards this.

It's more weird than bad if a character's name is Poo. Why does it annoy you?

12The Fanbase

The fanbase is pretty smart and cool. Compare it to Call of Duty's fanbase...

I like the fan base. But undertake a cringe sans drawings have been slowly leaking in. Go on the miiverse stage in smash and play as ness. You'll see what I mean.

13Claus and Hinawa Dying

SUPER SAD! WHICH MAKES IT SUCK! Not the game but that part sucks

That's why people have second thoughts about the game. I think the rest is funny and great.


Blood is everywhere! Mondo Mole's arms and Kraken's teeth and lips are really blood! If I was editing the sprites in Earthbound, I remove the blood on Mondo mole and Kraken! They only did that letters to the purple insane painter man from happy village.

According to the average gamer, blood apparently makes games 100x better and games without it are 'kiddy'. 2 enemies with subtle blood references in a rated T game? Ahh!


Just wot it sound like

17Derpy Designs

Of course, the only REAL problems in this part are the Crested Bookas (which are one of my favorite enemies), the Wetnosaur, and Trillionage Sprout. But what did you expect from a game with Ku Klux Kopies, Psi known as PK, and...wait, what the heck's with the Wooly Shambler?

18The Ocarina of Hope

Believe it or not, in earthbound zero there is a ocarina. It is somehow the ocarina of time is a ripoff to the ocarina of hope. And that's majora's mask is way better then ocarina of time.


Paula os overrated and I thing Lucas is a better couple forma ness
