The Hint Man is a Character in EarthBound. He states that his service is to provide hints specifically to Ness if he is currently unaware of what to do during the game. He can be found in each town, and his hints increase in price the further the town is from Onett. His location is shown on the player's map, if they have one. He may be found inside a booth in a house, or standing outside holding a sign.

As most hint-givers are in games, the Hint Man's text changes depending on where the player is in the game. Although most of his text is centered around giving Ness and friends hints, sometimes the Hint Man will say something not helpful, often a joke or something serious directed towards Ness.
