Frank (full name: Frank Fly) is an enemy in EarthBound. Frank is in the same group as the Pogo Punks, the Skate Punks, and the Yes Man Juniors, being the leader of the Sharks himself. He meets Ness after said hero enters the game building and defeats the Yes Man Junior in the way. He asks for his name, but doesn't get any answer, and attacks Ness. Frank attacks by saying something nasty and brandishing his knife. After being defeated, Frank becomes tame and sends Frankystein Mark II to attack. After Ness defeats the robot, Frank calls himself "Failure Frank" and tells Ness about Giant Step.

In the EarthBound Player's Guide, battle screens depicting Frank display his name as Mr. Frank,[1] likely due to the -sama suffix used with his name in Japanese.

EarthBound Player's Guide description

"Frank thinks he's one tough dude, but if you're fairly experienced, he won't give you much trouble. Be sure you'll well-supplied when you face him."
