** For some reason or another, Ness is almost always drawn with PurpleEyes in fanart.

** Condiments to some. Not only are they [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] because said space they take up could better be used for another healing item, as well as generally taking up precious inventory space, it's all too easy to forget you have one in your inventory if you don't immediately drop it and end up accidentally wasting one of your healing items since they activate whenever you use a food item, regardless if it would work well with said item.

The only time many players use them is to exploit the aforementioned Rock candy + Sugar packet trick.

** A lot is also applied to Pokey and Giygas. We can't list them all, but you can probably think of a few off the top of your head if you're familiar with EarthBound.

** [[GoodBadBugs The Rock Candy + Sugar Packet trick]], which involves exploiting a glitch, often dubbed "The Rock Candy glitch." You do it by using a food item at the bottom of the inventory with a condiment. The condiment gets used, but the item doesn't, which effectively means that by keeping a consumable item at the bottom of the inventory, you can use consumables over and over without them ever running out so long as you have a condiment. As the name of the glitch suggests, this glitch is most often exploited with Rock Candies, which raise a random stat, and by several extra points when combined with a sugar packet. (Ab)Using this leads to characters with erroneously higher stats than they normally would have. If FridgeBrilliance sets in, getting kids hyped up on sugar would totally add a new level of depth to the game.

** The Rock Candy + Sugar Packet trick, which involves exploiting a glitch the game has where when using a food item at the bottom of the inventory with a condiment, the condiment gets used, but the item doesn't, which effectively means you can have infinite amounts of consumables.

* FriendlyFandoms: While, noted above, Earthbound and Undertale have a bit of a rivalry, parts of these fandoms actually get along quite well.

** It's telling that when the game was finally released on the VirtualConsole, it quickly rose to second place in the Wii U digital shop's "[[http://earthboundcentral.com/?p=11519 recent best sellers]]" list in America. It was beaten only by ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', which at the time was on sale for thirty cents...and then it surpassed ''Donkey Kong'' [[http://earthboundcentral.com/2013/08/earthbound-moves-up-the-charts/ while it was still on sale.]] [[http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/34985 It also topped the same chart in other countries]]. Furthermore, a large Miiverse community quickly formed around the game composed of both old and new players.

** The [[spoiler: first]] Kraken. It has several ''massively'' damaging party hitting attacks that, if not [[OneHitKill one-shotting]] a party member will at least leave them ''very'' close to death. You'll pretty much be using either Ness or Poo as a dedicated healer throughout the fight and even if Paula is boosted up on stat boosting items and Jeff is spamming Big Bottle rockets, the Kraken still takes a long time to go down because of its massive amount of HP. Worse still; you can't even abuse it's statis weakness since near all its attacks are PSI based and paralysis only stops physical attacks; it might buy you a turn ''at most'' but it doesn't majorly help when near everyone's HP is scrolling down to death. It's little wonder why most walkthroughs will recommend using one of the sanctuaries to grind at before facing it. Worst part is, it's possible to encounter it ''way'' before you're expected to, when your characters would be grossly underleveled for dealing with it. [[spoiler: By Magicant, while Ness will be leveled up enough to take them down in a few thorns, it doesn't stop them from being a [[GoddamnBats massive thorn in your side]] thanks to needing to reserve your HP and PP for Ness' Nightmare, as stated above.]]

* TooAwesomeToUse: It's not uncommon to hear people keeping the Hand-Aid that you get from Paula's mother from the near start of the game all the way up until the final dungeon. Being the ''only'' full heal item in the game, most people will only use it if they absolutely need to.
