Mt. Oriander is the name a mountain found in Mother 3, located north of Sunshine Forest. It is the first place visited in the game. Several Dragos can be found here, as well as some other domestic animals. However, they can only be seen before the Pigmask Army invasion. Mt. Oriander is a large region, consisting of various cliffs. Some of its areas can only be accessed using Duster's Wall Staples.

In Mother 3

In the Prologue

During the Prologue, Hinawa, Lucas and Claus are visiting their grandfather Alec at his home. Lucas is woken up by Claus at the very start of the game to play with the Dragos outside. After play-fighting by dashing into them, Hinawa calls them inside to eat their favorite food. After eating, Hinawa sends a letter to Flint saying they miss him and will be home soon.

In Chapter 1

While searching for his family, Flint reaches a dead end at a cliffside at the base of the mountain. Wess asks to borrow Boney, tying a band to his collar and sending him to get Duster. Duster uses his Wall Staples to take Flint up further, where they find a scrap of cloth from Hinawa's dress. Further up, they find Pigmasks tampering with a caribou, which they send to attack Flint's party before running away. The Pigmasks accidentally leave a notebook that contains a memo detailing their plans for the Fascinating Chimera Project.

Later in the chapter, before he begins his search for Claus, Flint stops by at Alec's home, where Alec joins him. He takes Flint to Aeolia's house, who informs them that Claus is headed to the Drago Plateau to avenge his mother by killing the Drago that killed her. At the top of the Plateau, Flint defeats the Mecha-Drago, but Claus is nowhere to be found.

In Chapter 4

Alec's house is destroyed by lightning a while after the Pigmask Army take over Tazmily Village. The Oriander Observatory is planned to be built in place of his house, and Alec is moved to the Old Man's Paradise retirement home.

In Chapter 7

Lucas's party must travel to Aeolia's house in order to pull Aeolia's Needle. However, as Lucas arrives, Aeolia is already beginning to disappear, as the needle at Osohe Castle has already been pulled by the Masked Man. Towards the end of the chapter, Lucas travels through Mt. Oriander to reach Argilla Pass.
