"When used during battle, the enemy gets so nauseous from the ripe odor, they cannot fight. Gone after one use."
— Item description

The Pair of Dirty Socks is an item in EarthBound. It is given to Ness by Penetella Giovanni in the Fourside Bakery as a reward for retrieving his grandmother's memento lost in Dusty Dunes Desert, the Contact Lens. The dirty socks solidify one enemy of choice when used in combat. They are gone after using once.

Trivia[]

  • In Mother 3, Wess may sometimes throw a pair of Duster's dirty socks at the enemy, for the same solidifying effect as it gave in Earthbound but at a much lower chance of success.
