Runaway Five - Legacy


EarthBound has been featured in all of the titles of the blockbuster Super Smash Bros. series, further increasing the fame of Earthbound. Ness has been a staple veteran of Super Smash Bros. since the beginning. In the first title of the series, Super Smash Bros., Ness appeared as a hidden character, unlocked by beating the 1 player mode on normal difficulty or higher, using three lives or fewer, not using any continues, and finally defeating Ness in a match. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ness is playable from the start. Ness is once again an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and can be unlocked in several different ways. Onett and Fourside appear as battle arenas in the Melee, while only Onett appears in Brawl. New Pork City, from Mother 3 (the sequel to Earthbound and the third game in the Mother series), appears in Brawl as well. In addition to Ness, Lucas from Mother 3 is a playable character in Brawl, Pokey/Porky appeared as a boss, and trophies for many other characters, such as Paula, Jeff, and Poo, can be collected in the two latter games. Jeff is also featured as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, using his Multi-Bottle Rockets to home in on opponents. Mr. Saturn is used as a throwing item, and the Franklin Badge is featured as a power-up.

EarthBound's soundtrack has been lauded by critics and fans, including Alex Hall, a staff writer for the online music magazine The Tune, who named it the best video game soundtrack of all time.
