Ness is the main protagonist of the SNES RPG game Earthbound. He starts his journey when a meteorite crashes near his home, followed by him meeting his obnoxious neighbor Pokey Minch. Ness and Pokey observe the meteorite, and a bug named Buzz Buzz comes out of it.
Ness's adventure truly begins after he goes to the town of Onett. He can go to the Drugstore to purchase different weapons like a baseball bat and a yo-yo. Later, he recruits Paula, Jeff, and Poo to find the Eight Secret Melodies, aid him in battle. Ness can also ride on a bicycle, but only when he's alone.
Ness mostly uses healing moves like Lifeup and PSI Shield, but he can also attack with PSI Flash, and his strongest attack, PSI Rockin'. Paula can use PSi Fire and PSi Thunder, Jeff uses shooting attacks, while Poo is capable of using the incredibly powerful PSi Starstorm.
Ness and his friends can also venture to Saturn Valley to get help from the Mr. Saturns, but Ness at one point goes to Magicant alone in his mind, where he meets his younger self.
Overall, Ness is a pretty decent character when he was introduced, but the sad truth is; he stars in one game, and one game only: EarthBound. What is your opinion on Ness?
