Bottle Rockets are recurring items found throughout the EarthBound series. Bottle Rocket are single use consumable battle items often only usable by specific party members. EarthBound has two stronger forms of Bottle Rockets: the Big bottle rocket and Multi bottle rocket.

In the Mother 3 fan translation the Bottle Rocket is referred to by its Japanese name: the Pencil Rocket.

Usage

In EarthBound Beginnings

Bottle Rockets are only usable by Lloyd. They damage all enemies for 18-22 points of damage. It is the item equivallant of PK Fire α.

In EarthBound

Bottle Rockets are only usable by Jeff. Their damaging properties were redone: They now deal 90~150 damage to a single enemy with a chance of missing. Chance to miss is ((Enemy speed x 2) - Jeff's speed). Two upgraded forms are available:

  • The Big bottle rocket is essentially five Bottle rockets being launched at once, dealing 90~150 damage to a single enemy five times for approximately up to 750 damage.
  • The Multi bottle rocket is 20 Bottle rockets being launched at once, dealing 90~150 damage to a single enemy 20 times for approximately up to 4,000 danage.

For both upgrades, each rocket has a miss chance of ((Enemy speed x 2) - Jeff's speed) which affects the damage roll.

In Mother 3

The Bottle Rocket returns in Mother 3. The fan translation uses its Japanese name, the Pencil Rocket. It is now usable by anyone and deals moderate Bomb element damage to all enemies

In the Super Smash Bros. series

Jeff launching bottle rockets in Brawl

Starting with Super Smash Bros. Brawl Jeff appears as an Assist Trophy and attacks using Bottle Rockets. The Bottle Rockets in particular are based off of the Big bottle rocket (Pencil Rocket ×5 in Japan), as he launches one large Bottle Rocket and four smaller ones. Occasionally, he will launch another set of Bottle Rockets as well. They are homing rockets that will follow any nearby player, and explode upon collision. The Bottle Rockets retain their design used in the instructions booklet for Mother 2.
