Saturn Valley is a settlement in Mother 3 accessed east from the Highway system in Chapter 7. Implied by the map, it is to the east of the Nowhere Islands at the foot of Fire Mountain. Like it's EarthBound counterpart, it is home to the creatures known as the Mr. Saturns.


Saturn Valley in Mother 3 can be accessed from the Highway system during Chapter 7, as the name implies it is at the bottom of a small valley. It is visually similar to EarthBound's Saturn Valley, except the surrounding mountains are rocky rather than grassy. It is a small village condisting of four futuristic houses designed after the Mr. Saturns themselves. North of the village area is a hot spring accessable via a cave. A ladder above the hot spring leads to a cliff surrounding an inaccessible group of trees before reaching a scalable cliff where Duster can place his wall staples, and above it is the entrance to Fire Mountain.


When Lucas and company arrive, they find that the Mr. Saturns are under attack by the Pigmask Army, who are attempting to torture them with Frightbots in order to find the location of the next needle. It is here that Duster is rescued and rejoins Lucas's party.

After they are freed, the Mr. Saturns inform the heroes that there is a Magypsy living to the north in Fire Mountain, guarding a needle there. The Mr. Saturns also help them ascend by forming a ladder until Duster reaches a portion of the wall on which he can use Wall Staples. At this point, the Saturn-ladder collapses, though they put up a proper metal ladder afterwards.

After the defeat of New Fassad and the pulling of Phrygia's needle, the Pigmasks bomb the entrance to Saturn Valley, forcing Lucas and company to depart by a flying birdcage, hooked on by Rope Snake. However, Rope Snake's jaw eventually gives way, causing the party to land on the beach near Tazmily Village.

Memo description

According to the person at the Chimera Lab, far to the east of the highway live creatures who go by the name of Mr. Saturn.
