The Flying Men (フライングマン, alternatively Flyingman in Encyclopedia MOTHER) are characters in Mother and EarthBound. They live together in a small house that Ninten and Ness can visit in Magicant both in Mother and EarthBound, respectively. If a Flying Man is spoken to, he will join Ninten or Ness until he is knocked unconscious. Once a Flying Man has been defeated, he cannot be revived and will be buried at his home. There are five in all, but only one can join Ninten or Ness at a time.

In EarthBound, the Flying Men introduce themselves to Ness as his 'Courage'. This is keeping in line with the fundamental nature of Magicant, which is a manifestation of its visitor's unconscious mind. In addition to their appearances, they can deal and sustain a moderate-to-high damage from enemies.

Lyrics: Linda Hennrick

Voice: Louis Philippe



Life is but a moment
a single grain of sand
that slips right through the hourglass
and slips right through your hand
you've shown me how
to make each moment count
and I know now
what life's all about

Life is but a twinkle
the winking of an eye
a star that lights the universe
a flash across the sky
you came to me
just like a shooting star
you gave to me
the love that's in your heart

When you live for love
how precious life can be
when you give your love
I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

So shine for all the world tonight
and live for love, give your love to me

Life is but a twinkle
the winking of an eye
a star that lights the universe
a flash across the sky
you came to me
just like a shooting star
you gave to me
the love that's in your heart

When you live for love
how precious life can be
when you live for love
I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

So shine for all the world tonight
and live for love, give your love to me

When you live for love
how precious life can be
when you give your love
I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

So shine for all the world tonight
and live for love, give your love to me

TriviaEdit

  • They may be a reference to the enemies in the NES game Balloon Fight, who not only look like birds but also fly by using balloons.
  • Near the house where the Flying Men reside, Buzz Buzz's grave can be found.
  • Flying Men appear in the Magicant stage in Super Smash Bros for 3DS, and will ally with the first player who touches them. They fight in the same manner as normal fighters do, so they can also be grabbed and punched out of stage.
