Blades are weapons used by Teddy and Poo in EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound, respectively; mainly being swords and knives.

In EarthBound Beginnings

The blades in Mother are equippable items that only can be used by Teddy. There is a total of four different blades that can be obtained throughout the game, with varying Offense increasing values.

Butter Knife


The Butter Knife, abbreviated in-game to ButterKnife, (ナイフ Knife) is the weakest of the blade weapons, increasing Teddy's offense by 15 when equipped. It can be purchased for $580 in the department store of Ellay; one Butter Knife can be found in a present in the center of Sweet's Little Factory.

Survival Knife


The Survival Knife, abbreviated in-game to Surv.Knife, (サバイバルナイフ Survival Knife) increases Teddy's offense by 38 when equipped. It can be purchased for $1200 in the department store of Ellay.

The Sword (アシガルソード Ashigaru Sword) increases Teddy's offense by 46 when equipped. The Sword can only be obtained once in the game, which is from a present located in the Magicant Underground; more specifically, in the area that is connected with the underground's exit.
