"Even after being torn, it defiantly orders not to give up, but to bang on the rim instead! It isn't easily beaten."
Battle Memory

The Beaten Drum is an enemy found in Mother 3. It appears in the Club Titiboo Attic. One appears in a boss battle with the Jealous Bass and the Gently Weeping Guitar.


The Beaten Drum's original theme is Tough Zombeat; it can freely change the background music to A 16-Beat Attack! or A Marching Attack! during its turns in battle, and is the only enemy to do so in the game. It may also use a multi-hitting combo attack.

Beaten Drums rarely drop Sprinting Bombs when defeated.

Its battle sound is Battle Sound 6 which falls under Code Numbers 454 for regular attack, 455 for Smaaaash! and 456 for Miss.
