Appears in EarthBound

The Neutralizer is a reusable battle item in EarthBound. It can only be used by Jeff and certain enemies.


When used in battle, it will reset all participants of the battle into a neutral state, specifically it resets all stat changes to normal, removes any status ailments and disables any Shields or PSI Shield. Some enemies can emit a "pale green light" which has the same effect.

The Whirling Robo and Electro Specter are the only characters besides Jeff that are capable of using the Neutralizer itself.
