Ness is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. He is from the Mother series who serve as the main protagonist of the game Earthbound. Ness is also one of the "Original 12."


Ness is a young boy from Onett who was born with very powerful psychic abilities. Ness was soon tasked to take down Giygas before he takes over the world. Ness soon set out on his journey and eventually recruited Paula, Jeff, and Poo and they went back in time to stop Giygas. As stated above, Ness is able to use PSI techniques in battle. He is capable of using offensive, defensive, and healing spells to help his friends. Ness' signature attack is PSI Rockin' which is a very powerful multi-hit attack that he can learn early in his adventure. Ness also has more HP and PP than the others (which definitely helps after he defeats his nightmare toward the end of his adventure). However, Ness is often the slowest member of the party compared to the much quicker Paula and Poo.


  • In the Super Smash Bros. series, Ness' Final Smash is PK Starstorm. However, in the games, Ness is not capable of using this Final Smash. Only his teammate Poo can.
    • However, in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Poo (along with Paula) now accomplies Ness when using PK Starstorm making it's use more understandable.
