EarthBound Player's Guide

The Manly Fish's Brother is an enemy encountered in EarthBound. It is a purple palette swap of the Manly Fish, and very rarely appears along side its "brothers" in the Deep Darkness.

Battle[]

Unlike other Manly Fish, they can wield PSI powers in addition to spear attacks. The Manly Fish's Brother can use Paralysis α, Hypnosis α, and PSI Freeze β, which can inflict around 200 HP of damage to a party member. The Manly Fish's Brother is also the first enemy in the game capable of using Healing Ω, which can not only cure any status ailments the enemy party has, but also revives their fallen allies. It has a 1/128 chance of dropping a Horn of Life when it's defeated.

It is one of the very few non-boss enemies to use the Sanctuary Guardian theme.
