Mother Walkthrough part 2
Union Station
-Now you can go to Reindeer and Spookane, or you can go to Snowman, to get the third character
Paula. I suggest going to Snowman. But FIRST stop off at Reindeer and talk to the old lady at the
station. She will give you Paulaís hat. You need this hat in order for her to join your party.
Snowman
-Once you are in Snowman, I suggest using 4th-D slip and RUN from the enemies. They are very
strong and theyíll probably kill you fast. Use the SAVE STATE feature in this area if you can.
-Donít talk to anyone in Snowman. A couple people have colds, and thatís the LAST thing you
want. Go to the Chateau. This is where Paula lives.
-When you arrive, go up to Paula and USE the hat. She will then describe her situation, and join
you.
- Once you get Paula, take her to MAGICANT as soon as possible. Donít even go outside. There
is no way she can survive the attacks the animals give.
- When you arrive in Magicant, talk to the "swimming cat" that swims on the ground. Itís to the
WEST beyond the cone pillars.
- When you talk to the cat with Paula in your party, the cat will give her the Ribbon. This will raise
her FIGHT stats.
- Get some experience and armor for Paula while you are in Magicant. When you leave (and if you
have enough money) go to Merrysville and equip everyone with the Boomerang.
Spookane
-Now go to Union Station, and take the train to Spookane. When you arrive in Spookane, animals
will attack you, even in the city.
-The Spookane hotel may be a cheap stay, but after you had your nightís stay, you have to fight the
Starman. Beware of that.
-Now, go to East Spookane until you see people. Talk to everyone. There is one person that will
give you a KEY to this Haunted House. The Haunted house contains the fourth Melody.
- The haunted house is a big maze. Here are the directions to get the melody without getting lost.
However, there ARE some items that may be useful.
     Top Door
     Top Door
     Bottom
     Bottom
Once a voice says, "GO BACKÖ" that means you are there. The melody is in a room with a piano.
CHECK the piano, and then leave. There is nothing more you can do in Spookane.
Desert
-North EAST of Union Station is the Desert. In this desert, you will find the fifth melody. It is the
singing cactus. If you go East more, you will find the old pilot. Heíll let you use his tank if you have
enough ticket stubs from his airplane ride. So if you want to get the tank, you must have 12 spaces
open for ticket stubs.
-I suggest doing the cheapest flight. It will show you where the cactus with the face is too. When you
do that 4 times, youíll be able to get the TANK. With the tank, you can go to the Monkey Cave,
which is loaded with PSI Stones. It is guarded by a huge robot. So you need the tank.
-Once you've gone into the cave and left, head to Youngtown. Just go down the river til you reach
the station.
Youngtown
-In Youngtown, all the childrenís parentís have disappeared. They were "taken away by a big ship in
the sky".
-Now find the Garrisonís house. Inside youíll find a baby. Communicate with him using Telepathy.
He will then teach Ness and Paula the power of teleportation. With this power, you can teleport
from ANYWHERE, as long as you have enough room to run. You can move when you teleport by
using the arrow keys.
-Also in Youngtown, there is a store. You can buy Jeffís best weapon, the Air Gun (I believe this is
his best weaponÖ). Youíll need to be as strong as possible in order to defeat the enemies.
Swamp
- After running around for a while in the swamp, youíll see a garbage can. You register YOUR name
here. Inside the house is Pippi. Sheíll let you rest, then you can continue on to Ellay.
Ellay
-Once you arrive in Ellay, you will meet Blah Blah Members (AKA, B.B. Gang. I bet it was
originally some kind of BAD word.) If you fight them they just stay there. Hereís a VERY good tip:
If you fight the B.B. Gang Member near the Police Department, and the Dept. Store, you have a
chance of winning the FLMTHROWER from him. This weapon basically allows you to use PSI Fire
r on ALL enemies. However, only Jeff can use it, and it eventually breaks down. But you can win
MANY of them. This is a good way to build levels in the process too.
- Buy a ticket for the LIVE SHOW at the Dept. Store. Then, go to the Live Show. You may
encounter the pilot who let you borrow the tank. Youíll have to pay for the damage for the tank.
Now you can enter.
-Talk to the man near the stage. Heíll ask you to SING on stage. Youíll do your thing, then the B.B.
Boss will come in. Uh oh. Youíll have to fight him. Only Ness though.
-After a couple of hits, the battle will end. The B.B. Boss ("Jack) will ask to join your party. Say
yes. However, Jeff will leave for a bit. But Jack is a VERY strong character.
- Once you have Jack in your party, go to Magicant to equip him with everything. Remember that
SWORD in the Dungeon? Well, he can equip that. If you havenít fought the Dragon yet (and your
level is at least 25 for Ness), you might be able to fight him and defeat him, thus gaining the 6th
melody. When you are finished, TELEPORT back to Ellay.
-Now follow the road EAST of Ellay to Mt. Itoi. There is a house on the way there. This house will
provide you with rest, and free Life-Up Cream. Get A LOT.
Mt. Itoi Caves
-This is probably the hardest part in the game. Not only are the enemies hard, but it is a VERY
difficult maze. Sorry, I wasnít able to give very good instructions on this maze. However, once you
(or if you) find the PSI Stone in a GIFT BOX, youíll want to save your state. At that point you are
almost out of the cave. The following items (that I know of) are in the cave
- A PSI STONE
- The HANKS BAT
- A Fry Pan (I forgot the real name to it. Itís the most powerful weapon for Paula)
- Katana Blade (Jackís best weapon.)
I think thatís it. But there could be more.
Mt. Itoi
-As you leave the cave and go around in the mountain, you will eventually find another Healerís
House. He will cure you of EVERYTHING for free. Save your game using the phone here too.
-Now for the cool part. Go into the next room. Paula and Ness will start dancing. And theyíll do a
dialog. When Jack comes in, youíll stop dancing and start to leave. But then you will encounter a
HUGE robot. This will defeat you. You cannot stop it. However, Jeff comes to the rescue in a tank.
But he was not able to save everyone.
-Jack is now unconscious and cannot be revived. But look where you are now. Youíre at the
BOTTOM of Mt. Itoi! AHHH! Donít worry, if you saved your game at the healerís house on the
mountain, all you have to do is kill yourself, and youíll end up back there. The healer will then revive
your party, and everything will be happy again. Do this if you donít want to go back to the mountain.
-Once you return to the mountains, I suggest building levels around the healerís house, so you can
heal yourself if you get hurt. Once you are finished, continue going North.
-You will eventually find a dock with a motor boat in it. Jeff will fix the motor and youíll start going.
Go into the portal. (Donít ask HOW thereís a lake on top of a mountain like that).
-You will then go underwater into an aquarium type place. Thereís no enemies in there, so take your
time. You will eventually find a Huge red Robot. Her name is EVE.
-Once you get EVE you will return to the surface of the mountain. Quickly search for the item called
the Sea Pendant. This protects you from many PK attacks. EVE will destroy the enemies quickly.
However, you cannot teleport, or go to Magicant, while she is with you.
-Although it seems EVE is all powerful, you will eventually encounter an enemy that she cannot
handle. The enemy is defeated, but EVE is destroyed. Darn. But CHECK her, and she will play the
7th melody for you.
-Now continue up Mt. Itoi. It may seem impossible, but you can do it! Eventually you will reach the
XX Tombstone. Do NOT go any further into that cave. When you check the Tombstone, the last
melody will play. You will then learn that Mariaís love was put into the form of melodies. Once you
receive the melody, go to Magicant immediately.
-Save your game and state once you arrive in Magicant. Then go visit Queen Mary. You will sing the
song. At this point in the game, lots of things will start to fall into place. Queen Mary is Georgeís wife
Maria. I supposed they raised something called Giegue. She loved him, but he hated it when she
sang that song. After she explains that, Magicant will disappear, and you will end up by the XX
Tombstone again. NOW you can pursue through the cave up ahead. Notice how there is a new
command on your battle menu: The SING command.
The Final Battle
-If you go through the cave you will see another cave. Inside it are the trapped people (the people of
Youngtown most likely). Beware, there ARE enemies in the cave. Just keep going up. Soon, you will
encounter Giegue in his mothership.
-Youíll want heavy defense in this battle. Use the CHECK command and you'll see that you have to
SING in order to defeat Giegue.
Congratulations! You've beaten Mother/EarthBound ZERO!
Be sure to watch the WHOLE ending. For one reason, is that you can see (I think) how this game
leads into the original EarthBound. At the end, during the end of the credits, youíll hear a strange
sound. I think itís the meteorite crashing. Also, remember how Giegue vowed revenge? That has to
be Giygas. At the end, you also see Nessís dad! (Well, his back anyways). After you see his picture
and after you read the end of his dialog, the game is over, and nothing else happens.
For those who have no idea what just happened...
Although you may have beaten the game, you STILL may not understand a lot of things in the game.
Well, thatís okay. I sort of felt the same way. Iíll summarize what happened in the game right here.
I believe that George and Maria were abducted by aliens. George and Maria took care of them
(particularly Giegue). It seems that Giegue couldnít stand song or anything like that. While they were being abducted, I think that George stole information (the ability of PSI) from this planet I think George escaped somehow (Through PSI?). I think Giegue still loved Maria, but he couldnít stand the song she sang. The song she sang represented her love. I guess Giegue couldnít stand this love so it was shattered, all across the Earth, which made Maria forget it. Because of this, she was sent to Magicant, which was a nice world created out of her consciousness. Now I think that Georgeís quest is to get his descendent (Ness) to defeat Giegue for what he did. And he would do that through PSI. But I didnít think George knew Giegueís weakness. Thatís when Maria comes in.
Maria knows that the song is the only way to defeat him, so that is how Maria and George are
connected.
I congratulate you if you read all of that. I still donít understand WHY she loved Giegue. But it
doesnít really matter. But I hope I made SOME things more explainable
