|Dusty Dunes Desert|
The Smilin' Sphere is an enemy in EarthBound, which only appears in the Dusty Dunes Desert. As its name implies, it resembles a light brown sphere in possession of a mouth, which appears to be smiling. It explodes upon death, so many consider it wise to defeat it last when battling a group of enemies to prevent unnecessary damage from being inflicted to the party members. It either appears by itself, or with a Bad Buffalo, a Crested Booka, a Skelpion, a Cute Li'l UFO and a Crested Booka, or a Cute Li'l UFO and a Skelpion. Its improved counterpart is the Uncontrollable Sphere.
