"Careful, his 'Smash Hit' is quite effective."
— Description

The Gang Zombie is an enemy in EarthBound Beginnings. It resembles a member of an organized crime syndicate, or a gang, hence the name. They can only be fought on their own and have powerful Smash hits.


The Gang Zombie, along with the PseudoZombi, are the strongest enemies around Podunk, being capable of knocking Ninten uncouncious in two or three turns if he's not well prepared. Its battle theme is Battle With a Dangerous Foe.


  • Attack - The Gang Zombie attacks one party member, dealing moderate to high damage.



  • In the original Famicom release, the Gang Zombie battle sprite had bloody holes (most likely gunshot wounds) on its stomach. This was removed and replaced with a tie in later versions.
    • Interestingly, the clay model contains both the tie and the blood.
    • It also shows the paper mache model with its skin in a darker color than its in-game sprite.
  • In the Mother 1 + 2 release of Mother, the color of its suit was changed from brown to green.
