Yo-yos is a weapon EarthBound. Despite the fact that the yo-yo is used as bludgeoning weapons, it replaces the Bash command with the Shoot command. Because of this fact, the yo-yo user in EarthBound cannot perform SMAAAASHing hits.

Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo are all able to wield yo-yos, however, if Poo equips a yo-yo, it will lower his attack stat. Most yo-yos miss 18.75% of the time.

Trivia[]

  • The Friend's Yo-yo in Mother 3 might be a reference to EarthBound's Yo-yo.
Yoyo Kirby

The Banner on the Yoyo Power up in Kirby Super Star resembles that of the background within the Title Select Screen in Earthbound.

  • In the SNES game Kirby Super Star, the main character, Kirby, can get the Yo-yo ability, which changes his appearance with a red and blue baseball cap and lets him use a Yo-yo. Along with this, the background on Kirby's Ability Photo are green and blue tiles, similar to that of the File Select Screen in Earthbound. This could be an Earthbound reference.
