"Its engine runs on a deep, passionate yearning to meet people and find out about them."
Battle Memory

The Love Walker is an enemy in Mother 3. It appear in Porky's Bath Level of the Empire Porky Building, which is still under construction. They only move horizontally, making them easy to avoid.

These circular enemies have four legs, with large lips on the front of its body and the word "LOVE" on its back. Despite its Battle Memory quote referring to an engine, Boney's Sniff ability classifies it as a strange creature.

This enemy is likely based off one of the posters for the American movie Cabaret (also known as Kabaret). It features a face with a wide open mouth in the middle of four legs that appear similar to the Love Walker's.


The Love Walker can kick for moderate damage, and can cause nausea with an unwanted kiss. It can also put up an Ω-level Counter around the enemy party, and wields powerful PK Fire attacks (γ and Ω).

The Love Walker is slightly weak to fire, although it's terrible defense makes bashing it a viable strategy. It has a small chance of dropping the rare Goddess Ribbon upon defeat.

Her battle sound is Battle Sound 1 which falls under Code Numbers 439 for regular attack, 440 for Smaaaash! and 441 for Miss.


  • The Love Walker forms a swastika, since the movie it references takes place in Nazi Germany. However, when turned around in battle it is in the shape of a Manji, a Buddhist symbol of luck. This was most likely intentional, to avoid controversy.
    • The Love Walker is the second reference to Nazism in the series, the first being the Pigmask Army (especially through their mimicry of the Hael salute).
  • There was something in EarthBound 64 called the Greed Walker (煩悩ウォーカー). With how similar this name is to Love Walker it is very possible that the Greed Walker is some sort of counterpart to the Love Walker. And that the both of them could've been in EarthBound 64.
