Money is the substance that is used for purchasing various things in the Mother series and in real life. In EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound, dollars are used, reflecting an American atmosphere. Money is most commonly stored and withdrawn from Automatic Teller Machines. If the player loses a battle with money on them they will lose a percentage of the money they carried. Money stored in the ATM will never be lost due to Game Overs.

In Mother 3 the system of cash known as DP (Dragon Power) replaces dollars. Save Frogs will save the player's game, and, from Chapter 4 onwards, withdraw and store DP for characters.
