Conducting Menaces are enemies in EarthBound, appearing in the Cave of the Pink Cloud. They sometimes appear in pairs, and may appear alongside a Tangoo and/or Kiss of Death.

In battle, they appear as electrified skeletons, based off the "x-ray" effect seen on electrocuted characters in cartoons.

Oddly enough, they use the song: "Battle Against a Machine" even though they aren't a machine.


Conducting Menaces wield dangerous PSI attacks - PSI Thunder and PSI Flash (both α and β) - and should be taken out first. The Franklin Badge is needed to reflect the electric attacks, while a Night Pendant can protect a party member from PSI Flash.
