Appears in EarthBound
Residence Snow Wood Boarding House

Tony is Jeff's best friend and room-mate at the Snow Wood Boarding House in Winters.

After Jeff hears Paula's message for help, he wakes up and the player takes control of him. When trying to leave the room however, Tony wakes up as well and, after warning him about the rules, accompanies him as a temporary party member. He instructs Jeff to get equipment from the school's lockers, and the two ask Maxwell for the key. After finding that the key is bent, the two boys return to Maxwell, and he gives them the bad key machine which he had just invented. After opening the lockers and taking their contents, the two go outside, and Tony boosts Jeff over the gate in the front of the school, leaving the party.

Later in the game, after Ness gets the phone number required to make a reservation for the Stoic Club, Tony calls him and asks for the the player's name. Later, Tony goes missing, and is found to have been kidnapped. He is found in a tube in the Stonehenge Base, filled with a green liquid, continuously muttering Jeff's name. After defeating Starman Deluxe, he is freed. Tony is also one of the many characters that prays for the safety of Ness and his friends in the final fight with Giygas, and at the end of the game, one of the presents in Saturn Valley contains a letter, addressed to Jeff, saying that he misses him.

Trivia

  • In an interview with Shigesato Itoi, Tony was hinted at being gay.[1]
  • Tony's birthday happened to be the day after Jeff left Winters, as stated by a classmate of his that made cookies for his party.
  • If Ness speaks to him at the end of the game, Tony will say that Jeff doesn't call him, thinking it's because he finds him annoying.
