Guts is a stat in EarthBound and Mother 3. It determines a character's chances of getting a SMAAAASH!! attack, and high guts give a character a chance to survive Mortal Damage. Deadly Mice are known for having very high guts, as well as the Plague Rat of Doom. This stat replaces Fight from EarthBound Beginnings. The Guts stat can be raised by use of a Guts Capsule or temporarily increased in battle by a Sudden Guts Pill.
