"Brother, I'm so scared! The lamp seems to be alive!"

The Lamp is the first boss in EarthBound Beginnings. When the game opens to Ninten's home under the influence of a poltergeist, this possessed lamp attacks the boy, posing as his first enemy. Afterwards, Ninten must venture out into other parts of the household and defeat two other items also affected by the poltergeist, which include another Lamp and a Doll. The beginning of the game is the only appearance of the Lamp.


The Lamp is a very weak enemy, dealing low damage and being defeated in a few attacks. It can rarely do SMAAAASH!! attacks. Its battle theme is Battle With a Dangerous Foe.


  • Attack - The lamp attacks Ninten, dealing 1 HP of damage.


  • When the Lamp is defeated, the text states that it doesn't move anymore but, different than the doll, it is not seen in the overworld after the battle.
  • Lamps are one of the few enemies in Mother with an overworld sprite.
