- "Insecticide is effective."
- — In-battle Check
Flies are enemies in EarthBound Beginnings. They are only found in City Zoo before the defeat of Starman Junior. They have the highest Defense, Force, and Speed (and the second-highest Fight, after the Tiger) of all the regular enemies in the City Zoo, but they have the lowest Offense, Strength, HP (tied with the Rat), EXP, and money upon defeat (the last two being tied with the Centipede). They frequently call for help from other Flies during battle. As their description states, they are weak to Insecticide.
