Hypnosis (さいみんじゅつ saiminjutsu) is a PSI ability in all three titles of the Mother series. It works on a single enemy, or all enemies, depending on the power level, and causes the affected target to fall asleep. Attacking an enemy while they are in the Hypnosis state, has a probability of them waking up from this status. This also applies to party members, as well as this status being removed after a battle is won. Hypnosis is learned in EarthBound Beginnings by Ninten and Ana, in EarthBound by Ness, and in Mother 3 by Kumatora.
This PSI is very helpful in Mother 3, because when an enemy falls asleep, its heartbeat can be heard, which helps Lucas and the party hit combos successfully. A counterpart to the PSI ability is Duster's Thief Tool, the "Hypno-Pendulum". This device causes the same "sleepiness" status ailment, except it costs no PP, has a low success rate (35%), and targets only one enemy at a time.
