Top 27 Mother 3 Boss Battles(SPOILERS)

Ah, Mother 3. This game is one of if not my favorite game of all time. It has a fantastically dark story, likeable characters, awesome music, and of course some great boss battles.
This list will count down my least favorite boss to my favorite boss. So let's go.

27
This boss is the only boss I hate in Mother 3. Unfortunately, it's at least #2 on my hated bosses list. And that boss is the first fight with the Masked Man.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/e/e0/Masked_Man.png
I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate HATE this miserable excuse for a boss battle! I knew it was going to suck the instant I heard the battle theme, which is the harder version of the Barrier Trio theme. Dude, that sucks! The theme itself is good, but it doesn't fit for the fight. And what makes it worse? All of this boss's flaws were done right in a previous boss from the same game.
1. Masked Man can attack twice in one turn. So can New Fassad. But New Fassad was better because not only did his second attack not inflict damage, but his most powerful attack consumed both attacks.
2. Masked Man is incredibly difficult. So is Jealous Bass. And that boss is really high on the list.
3. Masked Man removes your shield before using his most powerful attack. All in the same turn. And there's no warning or consequence for it. You know what boss did this right? Every other boss before this with a super attack. I won't give every example, but you'll see what I mean.
Overall, this boss sucks. There's no excuse for it. While the next fight may have made up for it, it doesn't excuse the first fight.

Mother 3 was good at creating bosses that came out of nowhere and were still fun. However, it did have some duds. The Clayman is one of those duds.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/d/db/Clayman.png
First of all, this boss came out of nowhere. It wasn't seen or mentioned anywhere prior. Yeah, you see them later in the game, but still.
At least the boss itself could be a little bit of a challenge. The Clayman can punch you and do a... bum-rush? ... I don't even want to know what that is. The Clayman can also crash down on top of Duster, which is its most powerful attack, but it'll leave the Clayman stunned for a few turns.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/2/2b/Clayman2.png
So why is this boss so low? Well, this may be an odd complaint, but this boss would work better as a regular enemy. Like in Chapter 8 or something. You could keep this one as a regular enemy and have it be a mandatory battle(like the Pigmask Captain battle in front of the volcano level in Chapter 7) and then have the enemies appear later. That would be a good solution.
Of course, little challenge is better than no challenge. Speaking of which...

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/8/85/ReconstructedCaribou.png
Reconstructed Caribou is like the Clayman in reverse. Clayman came too early. I mean, we just fought Mr. Passion! I think Reconstructed Caribou, on the other hand, came a little too late. Just a little.
And unlike Clayman, this boss can actually be a challenge. Its super attack warning(!) is generating a burst of steam. Then it'll go berserk, and deal damage to all the party. But that's the hard way.
If you use the easy way, this boss is no challenge. Just spam Duster's Wall Staples over and over and this boss will be helpless to attack you.
Well, at least they wouldn't repeat this mistake again, right?
...
RIGHT?

Apparently they did! The Fierce Pork Trooper SUCKS. Massively. I'll only give this boss credit because it actually has some challenge if you don't exploit its weakness. It hits like a truck. However, if you use a DCMC item on him, it'll stun him for a few turns. Bam, attack, win.
And guess what?
They do this a third time.

Yep! You have to fight the Fierce Pork Trooper AGAIN. This time he's actually more challenging... sorta. His damage amounts are OVER 9000! ... Well, actually, the most he's dealt to me is 189, but that's a lot for Mother 3. He's still weak to DCMC, though, nullifying any challenge.
The good news? The bosses past here are at the very least decent. So it can only get better from here.

Bum-rush usually means he attacks you from the behind, if I remember correctly. :derpy:

Smacking someone with your butt must be pretty effective.
NOTE TO SELF: Try that sometime.

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/6/6e/CactusWolf.png
The Cactus Wolf's difficulty entirely depends on your partner/master/unlikeable character/other noun... or on how many Running Bombs and Ancient Bananas you have.
Cactus Wolf has about as much health as Reconstructed Caribou(A bit less, I think), which isn't much. It's about 400. And considering you can knock off about 100 damage with Running Bombs and Fassad can do up to 200(If you're lucky), this fight is pretty easy. However, aside from bombs, it's tough to damage this wolf effectively without Fassad... though he might spend some time wasting his turn.
The music, though not unique to the Cactus Wolf itself, is nice and fitting. Overall, this boss isn't bad. Though I do wish they had executed the concept a little better. Wanna see this fight done right? Fight him in the translation patch's Hard Mode. It wasn't in the original game, though, so I'm not counting it.

Re: Top 27 Mother 3 Boss Battles(SPOILERS)

Wow, I'm having a creative spurt. I'll go up to #20 before stopping.
At around Chapter 5, Mother 3 introduces us to shields. These will halve the damage the one with a shield up takes. A variant is counters, which halves the damage and deals damage to the attacker. However, these only work for physical attacks. There are also PSI Shields/Counters, which block/counter PSI but not physical damage. The first boss to use a shield is the Forlorn Junk Heap, and this boss is... okay.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/f/f8/Forlorn_Junk_Heap.png
Forlorn Junk Heap is the Clayman fight, but improved a bit. This thing can cheerfully throw scrap metal at 3 of your party members, swing a big lump of garbage, give off an incredibly foul odor to prevent a party member from eating or drinking, or attach pieces of trash to itself to increase a stat or heal. And... that's it, really. Hit its shield 3 times to remove it(or use the Shield Snatcher) and then get it PK Fired up. Lower offense as needed. If you have Shield Alpha, use that. But be warned, the Forlorn Junk Heap can put up its shield again if you remove it, though if you have the Shield Snatcher, it's not much of a problem.
The battle theme, Wasteful Anthem, is pretty cool too. Overall, like Cactus Wolf, decent boss. Not a big challenge, but it's interesting.

Nintendo, you have a brilliant sense of humor.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/f/f2/Kingstatue.png
The King Statue is the hardest boss in the game. It deals ridiculous damage, it has a whopping 10,00,00,000 HP, and it only takes 1 damage from attacks. Seems impossible, right?
It's not. You have 2 easy ways to beat it:
1. PK Flashing the statue will scar it for life.
2. Throw a New Year's Eve Bomb at it to reduce its HP to 1.
That is all.
(OK, I lied. I'm going up to #19.)

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/c/c2/AlmostMecha-Lion.PNG
This boss has the best name in the game, in my opinion. Seriously, who calls their boss "Almost Mecha-Lion"?
While this boss came out of nowhere, it's better than Forlorn Junk Heap. Its main focus is damage. It can deal a TON of damage with its attacks. But, really, aside from that, it doesn't do anything special. It can poison you, but that's it.
What's even funnier? Its battle theme is the same as Forlorn Junk Heap's. And they both don't do too much innovation on their boss fight. Is this intentional?
The final thing I should mention... Fully constructed Mecha-Lions are weaker than this boss. In fact, the Mecha-Lions are regular enemies. ... WHAT?

Yeah, I never understood that either... does that mean that the part of the Lion that is still biological makes it stronger somehow? :derpy:
Or, maybe the Almost Mecha-Lion was just built better. Come to think of it, that might actually be the reason Mecha-Lions are weaker.

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/2/26/SteelMechorilla.png
Steel Mechorilla is pretty much exactly like Almost Mecha-Lion. The only difference is that Steel Mechorilla has less variety in its attacks.
Steel Mechorilla's THREE attacks are to swing a steel ball, which hits two of your party members; attack with a powerful kick, and bellow a war cry to lower an opponent's offense. Yeah, not much, is it? Plus, Steel Mechorilla is obliterated by PK Thunder.
So why is it higher than Almost Mecha-Lion? Simple. Its special trick. If you use PK Thunder on it more than twice, it'll short circuit, gain power, and only go berserk for the rest of the fight, which damages your entire party massively. That is, unless you lowered its offense 3 times and raised your defense 3 times like I did. :celestia:
And the music... Guess what? It's the harder version of Wasteful Anthem! Except they did something creative with this boss. Sorta.

Perhaps. They do have different armor... Maybe they were focusing on damage with the full Mecha-Lions, since they have higher offensive stats.

Re: Top 27 Mother 3 Boss Battles(SPOILERS)

17(Flame shield ready)

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/d/d2/LilMissMarshmallow.png
Yeah, I can see the flames flying that this boss didn't even make the Top 15. Well, let me explain.
Li'l Miss Marshmallow, while an interesting character, is not that good as a boss. She plays as your typical robot that's weak to lightning boss. In her first phase, she'll slap a party member(sometimes a combo-slap!) or spill hot tea. Counters help if you have them, but shields work too. Then, when you get her health down, she'll activate her Ultra Ticked-Off mode.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/c/c6/LilMissMarshmallow2.png
Those gadgets look like the inspiration for Clemont's gadgets in Pokemon X and Y. Nice reference, if that was intended, Nintendo. :applejack:
In the second phase, the robot maid will attack wildly to hit 3 of your party members or use a drill attack. Sometimes she'll brandish a pincer, too. Paralysis helps.
The battle theme would be nice... if it wasn't played for the Unwelcome Gust too. Overall, this is a good boss.
And if you haven't fought it? Not too surprising! It's optional. To fight it, check the yo-yo in the display case in Thunder Tower after you beat the Fierce Pork Trooper for the second time. She'll get mad and attack.

http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/d/d0/Zombieshroom.png
After the next boss(You'll see) obliterates your party, you'll end up on a deserted island with - OH, SH*T! 1 HP, no items, and no PP to spare! And the Zombieshroom blocks you from going any further. The Zombieshroom can shoot out mold spores to damage your entire party, so you'll be dead instantly. Unfortunately, this is the only way to log it in the Battle Memory.
So how do you win this fight? You eat the nearby hallucination mushrooms and go on a trip out.
I'm not kidding. The mushrooms heal you, but they make you hallucinate. The Zombieshroom turns into Flint, and then he attacks you if you talk to him, turning into the Smiling Cyclops With Black Lipsti - I mean the Eerie Smile.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/e/e4/EerieSmile.png
This... thing can still shoot out mold spores. But instead of attacking, it can grow bigger, which does the same thing as a regular attack. After you hit it a few times, it'll reveal its true form as a Zombieshroom if you hadn't fought it before. So, the boss battle itself isn't that innovative, but the way you have to beat it was enough to bump it up a few spots.

Hey, a game that did a forced loss battle correctly!
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/a/a5/MasterEddy.png
Master Eddy is a big challenge. Naturally, being the guardian of the sea, he's weak to thunder. However, he can attack twice per turn, put your entire party to sleep, and generate whirlpools! Counters are really helpful here.
Even if you get down Master Eddy's health to a ton, you can't win. Master Eddy, when he's about to die, will pull a Mecha-Drago and generate a whirlpool with the last of his strength with ridiculous damage. Then you'll wash up on the aforementioned island.
Again, this fight didn't do too much innovation, but doing forced loss correctly is good enough for me.

Screw the final boss. THIS is the most epic fight in the game.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/0/09/PorkTank.png
I mean, let's see... You have a monkey, and an immature teenage girl... fighting a TANK. And WINNING. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean much for its spot on the list.
The first thing I should mention is the battle theme, Audacious March. It's very catchy and fitting. Now, for the actual fight.
This is a tough boss. Not the hardest boss in the game - you'll see that later - but it's still annoying. Its cannon firing isn't affected if you lower its offense and deals a ton of damage. However, the fight goes from too hard to too easy - which is actually fine here. They packed the difficulty into the first phase. After you attack the tank enough, it'll crack open!
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/9/94/PorkTank2.png
At this point, the tank is pretty much useless. Its Pigmask can only throw a cannonball, which deals 20 damage. Not much. Simply wail on it at this point until it's dead.
This is overall, a good boss. But here's where the bosses really start to get cool.
One last thing... If you throw an Ancient Banana at the Pork Tank, it'll slip violently. And you can lure the tank into dancing. That image is hilarious.

This entry requires a bit of explaining:
In Chapter 3, you meet a guy named Fassad. He's obsessed with bananas and is just a jerk overall. Remember the banana part for later. He plays a major role in the Pigmask Army.
In Chapter 5, he corners you at the top of Thunder Tower, and prepares to make an escape... only to slip off the tower thanks to a leftover banana peel. And guess what? He didn't die. He was reconstructed, becoming New Fassad.
http://walkthrough.starmen.net/mother3/image/enemies/newfassad.png
First off, he looks awesome. Now, to the fight.
Ah, this fight. This is a pretty tough one. As mentioned, New Fassad attacked twice, but only occasionally. His second attack had varied status effects on your party members, or they gave Fassad a shield. Fassad's damaging attacks are charging, using a musical horn attack(whatever that means), and firing a whole bunch of beams. His super attack is warned by him smiling boldly. Then the next turn, he'll most likely throw a bunch of bombs to damage your entire party, though he has wasted a turn with that attack against me. And as he gets low on health, he'll start eating bananas to heal himself.
The music is the harder version of Unfounded Revenge, aka Hustle for Pride. How fitting. Overall, this is a pretty challenging boss, and the pre-battle cutscene was kinda funny too.

I love music. If you know me, you probably knew that from the piano stuff I've announced. So, it's no surprise I like Mr. Passion.
http://walkthrough.starmen.net/mother3/image/enemies/mrpassion.png
Mr. Passion is a pretty fun boss. Apparently he's the ghost of a composer who died before he finished his masterpiece. Speaking of, the music is great. Family Matters, 2nd Movement is a mix of several famous orchestral themes, and they blend well.
As for his attacks, Mr. Passion can attack with chairs, candles, and mice. The mouse attack barely does any damage, but it's rare. When he gets low on health, he'll increase his offense once, and then start throwing everything but the kitchen sink at you to deal low damage 3 times.
So, yeah. This boss is a clever reference to music, and it's fairly comedic. I think he can throw the kitchen sink to deal a ton of damage. Yep, the kitchen sink deals more damage than everything else. Brilliant sense of humor. :lol:

Later on in the game, you find out that the leader of the Pigmask Army is Pokey! Or, as he's actually known, Porky. That's right, the Pokey from EarthBound.
Porky, however, doesn't fight you himself for a while. After climbing his Empire Porky Building, near his quarters, he appears. He hasn't aged a day!
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/d/d8/PORKY01.png
But before you can talk to him properly, he explodes. And then several Porkies drop from the ceiling. It's Mecha-Porky time!
At first, you have to fight Porkies 1 through 5 in a group. Only three can battle at a time, but they're all protected by PSI Counters at first, attack powerfully, and explode upon defeat. Don't worry, this isn't a serious explosion like the Nuclear Reactor Robot.
After you KO the first 5 Porkies, 6 joins the battle. Porkies 6 and 7 will summon random enemies from Chapters 4-7. Then, when you get to the last three, the DCMC(comparable to EarthBound's Runaway Five) join the battle! They'll utterly destroy the remaining Porkies, and they won't explode.
The best part about this battle is the references. Each Porky can do a "mechanical" version of one of Pokey's useless attacks from EarthBound, such as mechanically smiling insincerely. And the music, Porky's Porkies(an 8-bit version of Mr. Batty Twist combined with Porky's theme), is fun to listen to.

Upon reaching the top of Thunder Tower, the tower's defense system activates and attacks you. Yeah, it's weird, but the fight with Mr. Genetor is a fun one.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/9/9e/MrGenetor.PNG
Mr. Genetor is not a force to be taken lightly. He'll spend the first few turns attacking with a million-volt chop or swinging his arms all around. Don't try to attack him with regular attacks yet, because he can counterattack. When he stores electricity, get ready, because next turn he'll use a Discharge Zap attack which'll put the hurt on your party. However, the consequence for this is that it'll run out of energy.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/b/b1/MrGenetor2.png
He'll spend the next few turns charging his batteries and heal a small amount of health. Now you can attack him until he recharges.
So, yeah. This is a creative boss. And beating it feels satisfying.

Yeah, I've got a lot of motivation. What can I say? Mother 3 is my new favorite game. ;)
Anyway, it's really an accomplishment when a game can make a boss come out of nowhere and have tension in it. And so, Oh-So-Snake is a pretty awesome fight.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/6/6b/Oh-So-Snake.png
Oh-So-Snake attacks with biting and its tail. It can also try to immobilize a party member. However, its most powerful attack is diving into the water and causing a giant wave. The consequence for this is the same as the Clayman - it'll be immobilized for a few turns.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/9/9c/Oh-So-Snake2.png
Overall, the Oh-So-Snake is pretty fun. And it's the first boss on the list to have a unique battle theme with no (used) harder theme! Formidable Foe is the theme name.

Guess what? You fight Fassad a second time.
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/f/f5/Miracle_Fassad.png
And he's got more horns than ever! Not only that, his fight is much tougher.
Miracle Fassad's off-key music attack will deal damage to 3 of your party members. He can still throw bombs, and inflict status effects. But what's more? He can OHKO a party member rarely. Yeah, this fight is serious business.
After you damage him enough, Fassad's horns will break off and his heart will fill with hatred. (See New Fassad's entry for his sprite.) Now he shows that he has some INCREDIBLY powerful PSI. He also loves to spam eating Luxury Bananas.
When you finally defeat Fassad, it's so satisfying. He plummets into poisonous water, and you never see him again. This might just be the most difficult boss in the whole game!

Perhaps I spoke too soon...
http://www.wikibound.info/w/images/e/e6/JealousBass.png
Jealous Bass is easily the hardest boss in the game for me. Where do I begin?
Well, first, he's accompanied by a Gently Weeping Guitar and a Beaten Drum. However, they don't attack like they normally would. When they're alive, each of the instruments can do a "jam session attack", knocking off 30-40 health per hit and hitting each party member twice. So you'd better make sure to wipe out the instruments fast.
After you defeat the Jealous Bass's henchmen, he'll fly into a rage and get an offense boost. Jealous Bass can do regular attacks and perform solo jam session attacks to damage both of your party. Not only that, he happens to be packing Hypnosis Alpha.
Overall, this is how you do a difficult boss. TAKE NOTES, MASKED MAN.
