Spoiler-light version

If you get stuck, you can always talk to a hint man. There's one in the top right house in downtown Onett.

If you're a big Earthbound fan and want to go in without spoilers, the Onett checks are:

  • Buzz Buzz's last words
  • Lier X. Aggerate's Mani Mani statue
  • The meteor
  • The library shelf
  • Mayor Pirkle (after beating Frank).

After that you can probably guess and blunder your way through finding all the checks. The only other ones as obscure as the Mani Mani statue are Saturn Coffee and Tenda Tea.


  • All text speeds increased by one. The new "Yikes!" speed is near-instant.
  • Y button is run. You can switch to always running and Y is walk on the file select menu. You can even run on ladders and stairs!
  • Y button is also auto-mash. You can hold Y during text to automatically mash through everything except menu prompts.
  • Because the run button makes skip sandwiches useless, they are replaced with repel sandwiches, which turn off enemy spawns for 10 seconds (20 for DX).
  • The R button lets you rearrange or drop your last-received item. It's more versatile than you may expect! Try it all sorts of places.
  • You can hold two exit mice.
  • Swamps, sewers, and the Lost Underworld do not slow you down.
  • The Giygas prayer sequences are greatly truncated.


You can enable the MSU1 in the file select screen, but what is it?

The MSU1 is a fictional expansion chip for SNES carts, which adds the ability to play CD-quality audio. Several emulators including higan, bsnes, and recent versions of Snes9x support the MSU1, as do many flash carts.

To set up the MSU1, you will need to download an MSU pack, rename your copy of your randomized ROM to match the name of the files in that pack (typically eb_msu1.smc), and put them all in the same directory. Better instructions for how to do this can be found elsewhere.

Some Earthbound MSU packs can be found here. I recommend The Hip Hop Journey by Ballz!

Arborelia has also created a great Katamari-themed MSU pack, "Lonely Rolling Starman".
