スターマンのむすこ Starman's Son
Appearance in EarthBound
|Near Ness's House in Onett|
Starman Junior is an enemy in EarthBound, and might even be considered the first boss. It appears a short while after Ness meets Buzz Buzz, and explains that Giygas sent it back in time to stop Buzz Buzz from finding the heroes who could stop Giygas and fulfill the Apple of Enlightment's prophecy.
The Starman Junior has several potent PSI attacks, being capable of using both PSI Fire and PSI Freeze, but Buzz Buzz is able to block all of them with PSI Shield Σ. Unable to land any attacks, the Starman Junior is quickly overpowered.
|Be on guard||Guards against attacks|
|PSI Freeze α||Deals 135-255 points of damage to one party member|
|PSI Fire α||Deals 60-100 points of damage to all party members|
|PSI Fire β||Deals 120-200 points of damage to all party members|
EarthBound Player's Guide description
"When you return to your homes with Pokey and Picky, you'll be ambushed by Starman Jr.[sic] You'll be glad that Buzz Buzz is still alive to help with the battle."
- There is an unused sprite in EarthBound that strongly resembles the capsule the Starman Jr. escaped in after its defeat in Mother 1. This sprite could have been a placeholder for the diamond sprite that represents the majority of machines in the game or could have been used for the Starmen of the Cave of the Past as the ones in Stonehenge Base use the actual Starman sprite.
