Broken items are a type of item in EarthBound. These items are useless until repaired by Jeff while the party stays overnight at a hotel or some comparable resting location. Jeff's IQ stat must be at a certain level to repair certain items.

Repair Chances[1]

  • The first time in the game Jeff attempts to repair an item will have a 100% chance of succeeding.
  • If the previous attempt had a 100% chance of succeeding, the next attempt will have a 25% chance of succeeding.
  • If Jeff succeeds in repairing an item that he had a 25% chance of succeeding on, the next fix will have a 100% chance of succeeding.
  • If Jeff does not succeed in repairing an item that he had a 25% chance of succeeding on, the next fix will have a 25% chance of succeeding.
