** When fighting New Fassad, if you use Kumatora's PSI Magnet she will steal PP from him despite him not using any PSI for the entire battle. [[spoiler: This is because he actually ''is'' a PSI user, the traitorous Magypsy Locria]].

''MOTHER 3'' is notable for its long development cycle (approximately the length of the already-long production of the previous title), having been planned almost immediately after ''MOTHER 2'' was released. Details began to surface of ''MOTHER 3'' as a UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} title -- as part of the now-failed Nintendo 64DD add-on -- and was even given the tentative worldwide title ''[=EarthBound 64=]'' before falling into {{Vaporware}} territory (its earliest development predated ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever's'', which didn't surpass its time in DevelopmentHell until 2007). It was officially cancelled in 2000, although it resurfaced on the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance in 2006 -- apparently due to renewed interest while ''MOTHER 1+2'' was being worked on, but Nintendo has yet to [[NoExportForYou release the game outside of Japan]], despite vocal campaigns of support for an international release (Lucas eventually saw international recognition due to his inclusion in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'').

Nintendo's refusal to release the game outside of Japan (as the GBA was all but dead in North America and Europe by the time it was released) led to drastic measures -- which, in this case, means an English-language FanTranslation which took years to complete. As it stands, said translation is currently the only way to ever play the game in a language that is not Japanese. The translation can be found [[http://mother3.fobby.net/ at its dedicated homepage.]] For ease of reference, this unofficial translation is the primary source for tropes.

** At the start of Chapter 7, if you talk to the people in Tazmily, you'll find they're all talking about "New Pork" and "the Big City", and all of them are heavily considering leaving Tazmily to move there. When you hit Chapter 8 you'll find out that they were talking about [[spoiler: [[ BoomTown[=/=]{{Egopolis}} New Pork City]], the Ultimate Hub of corruption on the Nowhere Islands created by Porky, and the location of the Final Needle.]]

** It's implied that Hinawa once stood up to a ''fire-breathing robotically-enhanced tyrannosaurus rex'' in order to save her sons, and [[spoler: sacrificed herself in the process. And even when she's gone, she still works from ''beyond the grave'' to help them, saving Lucas's life twice.]]

* {{Brainwashed}}: [[spoiler:Everyone in Tazmily Village (except for Leder) was willingly brainwashed to prevent another collapse of society. Not to also mention how Tazmily is brainwashed by the Pigmask Army and how the Pigmask Army was brainwashed as well.]]

* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Very rarely, you can have the chance to catch the otherwise terrifying Ultimate Chimera Sitting on a toilet in the Labs. Its just as much a JumpScare as it is a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

* [[DubNameChange Fan Translation Name Change]]: Yokuba to Fassad, "Yoshikoshi" to "Violet", "Tamekichi"/"Umemaro" to "Lucky"/"Gorgeous", and many more (mostly in an attempt to mimic ''[=EarthBound=]''). Hinawa was almost changed to Amber to retain the ThemeNaming with Flint, but was ultimately left as Hinawa.

* GameGourmet: Initially, given the setting, your diet consists of things like nuts, mushrooms, beef jerky, and cheese. Not long into the game, though, come bags of pork chips, lootable from defeated Pigmask soldiers, marking the beginning of the end of the simple life that defines Tazmily Village up until then with the first processed foods since [[spoiler: the end of the old world]].
