The New Age Retro Hippie (きままなにいさん) is an enemy that appears in EarthBound. They mostly appear near Burglin Park in Twoson, and are fought alone. He is likely based off the Hippie that appears in EarthBound Beginnings. His clay model is actually very similar to the one in Mother look-wise.


The New Age Retro Hippie appears with a huge red afro, beard and mustache, and is dressed in an open blue shirt, red pants, and blue shoes. His in-battle sprite has him with crossed legs.

NPCs with the same sprite as the New Age Retro Hippie can be seen in the crowd watching the Runaway Five or operating a condiment selling stand in Burglin Park. One is seen outside a red house in Happy-Happy Village, where a Mr. Saturn lives.


His battle theme is Franky.

The New Age Retro Hippie's sticker in Super Smash Bros

The New Age Retro Hippie appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker. Attaching this sticker to the bottom of Ness or Lucas's trophies in The Subspace Emissary increases their PK attack by 11.

The sticker is actually of the Hippie's clay model from Mother, which was confused for this enemy.
