This is a draft for my improvements on Mt Itoi, where I have a section describing the different sections of this area. Once finished I will put this on the actual article itself.

Mt. Itoi, (Japanese: ホーリー•ローリー•マウンテン Holy Loly Mountain) also written as Mount Itoi, is one of the final areas in EarthBound Beginnings/Mother. It is notorious for being an extremely difficult area, and when Shigesato Itoi was asked of this, he said that the game was so close to completion he rushed everything and didn't have time to test the difficulty.[1] The seventh and eighth melodies are both located here. The Japanese Manuel states that it is considered a sacred place, and that few people ever travel up it.

Overview

The mountain consists of 3 different sections: the base, a large cave at its base, and a plateau at the end of the cave which contains a small rest house. Higher up on the mountain is a large lake with a central whirlpool. Eve is found in the central lake, in a lab located underneath the whirlpool. Lloyd is required to fix a boat on the eastern dock in order to navigate the lake. Higher up on the mountain, Eve dies at the hands of R7038XX, bearing the seventh melody. In the English release and Mother 1+2 versions of the game, the XX Stone at the mountain's peak bears the 8th melody, while in the original Japanese version, Queen Mary instead remembers the final melody on her own. Nearing the peak, Ninten's party is required to climb an increasing number of vines, as the mountain transitions from a mostly-flat section to a rocky outcropping.

Base

The base is accessed from heading out of Ellay from the north east, then heading south. The path is mostly linear and is bordered by two rivers. After going south a bridge can be found, and upon crossing it will lead to a forest with a small rest house where the player can either sleep for a full heal, or by Life Up Creams for free. The path continues east then turns north, and ends at a cave that leads to the cave of Mt. Itoi.

The forest path was altered during localization to being a linear path to the cave: in Mother the path was more of a maze with many misleading paths between the trees, whereas in EarthBound Beginnings the misleading paths were blocked by trees. Interestingly in Mother a group of trees form the shape of a question mark (?).

Mt. Itoi Caves

The cave is accessible from the base. The cave is a vast maze with many winding paths, and there are many powerful enemies in the cave. The player can find the most powerful weapons for each character (with the exeption of Lloyd) in here. At the end of the caves, the player will exit and be on the mountain itself.

Mt. Itoi

After leaving the caves, the player will find themselves on the mountain itself. The mountain consists of 3 sections: the plateau,the lake, and the peak of the mountain.

Plateau

The plateau is where the player exits the caves. The plateau appears to be somewhat dry and grassy. The player can climb ropes to advance to higher levels. The player willl come across a small rest house where they can heal for free, and with Teddy in the party they can go into the room in the back. After a cutscene where Ninten and Ana dance, the two confess their feelings to each other. However, Teddy interrupts the moment because he hears strange noises outside. The noise was caused by the R7038, and then they engage in a battle. The fight could not be won and the entire party collapses, then Lloyd arrives in a tank and tryes to rescue them, but accidentally misses and shoots the party, though he also destroyed the R7038 as well (In the Japanese version, Lloyd didn't arrive in time and the R7038 escaped. When Lloyd arrives he says "Oh no! I'm too late!). Lloyd takes them to the rest house at the base, but Teddy's injuries were more severe than the others' forcing him to stay behind, while Lloyd rejoins the team and the three travel through the caves once more and return to the mountain.

Lake

Past the rest house on the plateau is a large lake. Here, the only enemies to encounter are OhMooks. On the eastern side of the lake is a dock where a broken-down boat is parked, however Lloyd fixes the boat and they all ride in it on the lake. There is a whirlpool in the middle where the player will get sucked in, and find themselves inside a lab.
