Fobbies are enemies in EarthBound. Relatively weak foes, Fobbies are capable of using both the α and Ω levels of the Brainshock PSI, and can use Hungry HP-suckers. Neither of these abilities are effective however, as their initial battle condition is "cannot concentrate", but if you fail to kill them quickly enough, they will come to their senses and be able to use these abilities. They are encountered in groups of up to six in the Lumine Hall catacombs, at which point in the game Fobbies can be a very useful tool for level grinding due to their high experience-over-challenge ratio. Due to them being one of the few enemies which both have PSI points and appear in large numbers, they can be used to absorb PSI points with PSI Magnet Ω.
