Appears in EarthBound Beginnings

The Plasma Beam is a reusable battle item in EarthBound Beginnings which only Lloyd is able to utilize. Unlike Guns, the Plasma Beam cannot be equipped and is only usable in battle. It is an upgraded version of the Laser Beam.

In the English version and Mother 1+2 port, the Plasm Beam could be purchased from the Reindeer Department store on a newly-added floor. In the Japanese Famicom version, the Plasma Beam is unpurchasable, and can thus only be obtained by beating UltraBarbots.


When used in-battle by Lloyd, it deals about 80 HP of PK Beam damage to one enemy. The PSI equivalent of the Laser Beam is PK Beam β. It has a 12.5% chance of breaking after being used.
