"It glares at you..."
— In-Battle check

The Doll is the second enemy type encountered in EarthBound Beginnings. It is the first boss encountered in the whole series (if the games are played in numeral order) otherwise, the first boss to be encountered in the game. When the game opens to Ninten's home under the influence of a poltergeist, this possessed doll attacks the boy, posing as his second enemy (the first one being the Lamp). After defeating it, Ninten inspects the doll and finds a music box inside it, which contains the first tune of the Eight Melodies.


  • The Doll is one of the few enemies in Mother with an overworld sprite.
  • The Doll appears to be heavily based off of the world-famous Kewpie doll.
