"Most commonly found in Peaceful Rest Valley, Spinning Robos attack with fierce firepower. In groups of two or three, they can be deadly."
EarthBound Player's Guide

Spinning Robos are enemies in EarthBound, appearing in Peaceful Rest Valley. They are weak against PSI Freeze but fairly resistant to PSI Fire and Brainshock. While their name implies that they can spin, in-battle they can only fire a beam, shoot a night-time stuffiness beam to make a single character catch a Cold (which can be cured with Healing α), or use Shield α. This moveset is similar to that of the Li'l UFO it can be fought with; however, Li'l UFOs have much higher speed, and aren't capable of putting up shields. Their battle theme is first introduced in a battle against a Spinning Robo. Its successors are the Whirling Robo and the Hyper Spinning Robo.

Trivia[]

  • All three Robo enemies are capable of dropping Meteorite-type items. However, the Spinning Robo is the only Robo enemy to drop the Meteornium, and isn't strictly a 1/128 drop, unlike its successors.
