Poo is the prince of Dalaam, and is the fourth of the main playable characters in EarthBound. After finishing his Mu training, he is told that he is one of the chosen four by his Master, and must join Ness in his journey to defeat Giygas.

Unlike the other main characters in Earthbound, Poo doesn't receive attack boosts from the usual equipment, instead having an unique set of four items for his own use: the Sword of Kings, Cloak of Kings, Bracer of Kings and Diadem of Kings. Poo also recovers less HP from eating food items (not including the Brain food lunch, which replenishes his HP completely), only being able to recover about 6 HP from regular food. Also unlike other characters, Poo is the only character to gain more than 1 PP from drinking a bottle of water or a Bottle of DXwater, which recover 10 and 40 PP respectively.

History

Warning! Spoiler warning: this article or section may contain major plot or ending details! Proceed with caution. Warning!

Poo is very friendly with the people in his kingdom, appearing to be especially popular with the women of Dalaam. Before his meeting with Ness and his friends, Poo is seen undergoing the Mu Training under the guidance of his mentor, the Star Master. When he finishes his training, he learns Teleport, and uses this newly-learnt technique to teleport away to Summers, where the three other main characters are waiting for him.

Later, after exiting the Scaraba pyramid, the Star Master takes Poo away temporarily to teach him PSI Starstorm α. Later, in Deep Darkness, Poo re-appears in the battle against Master Barf, and lands the finishing blow with this new technique. Near the end of the game, the Star Master returns once again to teach Poo PSI Starstorm Ω in the Cave of the Past, so he can go back in time and defeat Giygas.

Mirror

Poo has the ability to turn into enemies using the Mirror (Japanese: ヘンしン Transformation) command, and use their techniques. Because of this, he becomes automatically controlled until the end of a battle. The success chance for this is based on the enemy it is being used on, with stronger enemies and bosses having low chances.
