"He seems to be Mr. Batty's superior, but he's actually at Mr. Batty's beck and call."
Battle Memory

Elder Batty is an enemy that appears in Earthbound and Mother 3, lurking around the attic of Club Titiboo and in the Murki Cave (during chapter 7).


The Elder Batties are yellow palette swaps of Mr. Batty, and act mostly the same, making themselves feel strange by sizing up the situation. With incredibly low defense, it is also just as much of a pushover. Their battle theme is Intense Guys.

On occasion, they drop a Bug Spray when beaten, which can take out the Arachnid!!!! also swarming the attic.

They are weak to PK Fire and PK Freeze

In Mother 3, its battle sound is Battle Sound 17 which falls under Code Numbers 487 for regular attack, 488 for Smaaaash! and 489 for Miss.
