Appears in EarthBound
Residence Winters

Tessie is a large sea monster in EarthBound. She carries Jeff and Bubble Monkey across Lake Tess in Winters. Tessie is first mentioned when Jeff goes south of winters, and finds the Tessie-Watching Club, they all claim to have seen a gigantic sea creature. Jeff manages to get on top of Tessie, thanks to the help of the Bubble Monkey, that floats his way towards Tessie thanks to the Pak of bubble gum.

Either Tessie or a model thereof appears in the room of EarthBound objects in the Empire Porky Building in Mother 3.


  • Tessie is apparently the cousin of the Loch Ness monster, an urban legend of the Scottish Highlands. Tessie also gets her name from the legend, as the monster is sometimes refered to as "Nessie".[1]
