でんげきビューン Electric Byūn
Appearance in EarthBound
|Item drop after battle chances|
|Sudden guts pill||4/128 chance of finding|
It is based on the various floating eye enemies from the Magicant of EarthBound Beginnings being the Watcher, Dadseyes, Momseyes, Foureyes, and Groucho, all of whom are respectively called the Swoosh, Papa Swoosh, Swooshette, Woosh Swoosh, and Bonus Swoosh in the Famicom version. The Electro Swoosh's "greeting" Ness is also similar to how a Groucho says hello before it walks away. Oddly, the Player's Guide states that using PSI Freeze against it is effective but neither Paula or Poo can legitimately go to Magicant.
|Charge forward||Deals high-level damage to one party member|
|Use an electrical shock attack||Generic PSI Thunder β; 60-180 HP of damage to two party members|
|Send a greeting||No effect|
EarthBound Player's Guide description
"This enemy believes in shock treatment, but if you use Freeze against it, it won't have time to charge itself up."
