"Most cops are good guys, but a few men in blue have agendas of their own. Stay in the shadows and out of their way to stay out of trouble."
EarthBound Player's Guide

Over Zealous Cops (あばれんぼうコップ, Hooligan Cop) are enemies in EarthBound, taking the appearance of a palette swap of Captain Strong. They can only be found on the Summers beach. They are extremely rare, to the point where one can play through the entire game several times over and never encounter one at all. Their attacks can do moderate to high damage.

The Overzealous Cop's moveset is the exact same as Captain Strong's. He can defend himself, lose his temper (Offense up), come out swinging, and grapple with his submission hold. Nothing is new, though his regular attacks deal more damage than before.

The Overzealous Cop may be tied with the unused enemy "Crooked Cop", though since its in-battle sprite shows a better resemblance to Captain Strong, it might not.
