The Wall Staples are one of Duster's Thief Tools in Mother 3.

Description[]

It is the only set of tools that Duster has on him when he first appears; the rest are obtained from gift boxes in Wess's house. They can be used to scale certain walls, which are noticable by their lighter hue compared to the surroundings, as well as the fact that said section is only a single column wide.

In battle, the Staples can be used to pin down and immobilize an enemy for a few turns, buying the player's party (usually) well-needed time.

Trivia[]

  • Wall Staples were not in EarthBound 64, in an interview, Shigesato Itoi said "One of the items in Mother 3 is a stapler, and at one point you climb a cliff by stapling into the side of the wall as you go. If this scene had been in the 3D version, it would have deserved to be an Olympic event." The way he phrases their presence in EB64 as a hypothetical implies they were not in the game.
