Scaraba is a desert island that can be found in EarthBound. After defeating the Kraken, Ness and co. end up here while riding on the boat from Toto. This area is based on ancient Egypt. In the north, there is a desert town with many features, such as a hotel and several shops. However, in the southern region of Scaraba, it is barren and unpopulated, although there are some oases located around the desert. The places where Ness and co. are vulnerable to sunstroke are marked by the darker sand. The Pyramid is an area that can be found here. After proceeding through the Pyramid, the player will find Dungeon Man. This area also leads to Deep Darkness.

Bazaar[]

In town, there are several small shops set up on the sand. Several items from Summers are sold here at a reduced price, such as the Platinum Band and Big League Bat.

    As seen on the Town map, Scaraba was originally called "Scarabi" in MOTHER 2. The name change was most likely in attempt to make the town sound more Egyptian to American players.
