Tigers are brutal, powerful enemies in EarthBound Beginnings, found in the Choucream Zoo. Alongisde Elephants, Gorillas, Hyenas, and other animals, they are one of the many animals driven to hostile behaviors by a strange noise at the Zoo, regaining their passiveness once the sound is dealt with.
Driven to Insanity
At the Choucream Zoo, Tigers were once passive and non-threatening to visitors at the zoo. Following the arrival of a strange noise, however, the Tigers of the zoo, among other animals, were driven to violent and aggressive behaviors. This lead to them escaping their cages and causing havoc on the Zoo staff and its visitors, and prompting Ninten to investigate the disturbance. When encountered, Tigers are by far the most dangerous enemies of the area, as their high offense and ability to attack Ninten twice can outright devastate him in a single turn. As the experience and money Tigers drop are comparable to easier enemies in the area, it is usually a better idea to run from any Tiger encounters. After Ninten stops the sound, the Tigers regain their sanity and no longer attack Ninten.
