In Mother 3

In Mother 3 only one frying pan is present, as their purpose has instead been given to Gloves. Similar to previous games this frying pan is only usable by the female party member Kumatora, however it is not her primary weapon, and due to this, as well as it being fake (implied by the name and in game description), it is not as powerful as gloves.
