It appears as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.Attaching this sticker to the bottom of Ness or Lucas's trophies in The Subspace Emissary increases their PK attack by 11.

While the sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl claims that it is of the New Age Retro Hippie, the sticker's model is actually that of a Hippie, and it also claims that it first appeared in Mother, implying that the two enemies were confused.
