The New Age Retro Hippie is an enemy in EarthBound, first found in the town of Twoson. He sports a large red afro and a red mustache and beard. He wears a blue open shirt over a tie-dye t-shirt along with red pants and blue sneakers.
The New Age Retro Hippie's attacks are relatively weak as most involve lowering the hero's stats or raising his own. He can lose his temper, which is the equivalent to Offense Up α. He can whiten his teeth, which will solidify the target. He also owns a ruler. He gives 160 EXP and $23 if defeated and will also drop a ruler 8/128 of the time.
The New Age Retro Hippie has the same battle theme as Frank, the leader of the Sharks, and when encountered he will always appear alone. His in-game battle music is a parody of the song Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry, and also resembles one of the four battle themes from EarthBound Beginnings.

EarthBound Player's Guide description
"The Hippie hangs out on the streets of Twoson, and his only purpose in life appears to be making the going less than easy for everybody else."
