"This psycho can singe the roots of your hair with his powerful Omega strength Fire and his PSI Shield keeps him safe from Freeze. Try Brain Shock instead."
EarthBound Player's Guide

The Major Psychic Psycho is an enemy in EarthBound. They are encountered in the Fire Spring. They are a stronger version of the Psychic Psycho, only using PSI attacks. They may rarely drop a Star Pendant when defeated.



Like the Psychic Psychos, the Major Psychic Psychos resemble a human with a purple suit made of fire and an HMD-like device over its head.
