- — Item Guy
Item Guy is a character in Mother 3. He is a wandering man who allows Lucas and co. to store items. His first appearance is in Chapter 4, beside the Cross Road Station, north of Tazmily Village. He does not require any DP for his services, and appears in several different areas in the Nowhere Islands. He is last seen in Chapter 8, underneath New Pork City. He is also used to store useful, or undroppable items, such as Trivia Cards, and the Mole Cricket Brother.
The Item Guy can be found in the following locations:
- Near the Cross Road Station, North of Tazmily, but only after chapter 3 is finished.
- At the factory east of Tazmily.
- In the center, far-left room of the Titiboo attic.
- Along the highway, at the eastern T-intersection near the "P" symbol on the map.
- In the first room of Thunder Tower.
- On Snowcap Mountain, just south of Lydia's house.
- Just north of Saturn Valley, accessible through a cave on the north side of the valley.
- South of Mixolydia's house on Tanetane Island.
- The first floor of the Empire Porky Building, by the elevator.
- Under New Pork City, appears after beating Porky.
- He is the equivalent of Escargo Express from EarthBound.
- The only difference between him and Escargo Express, is that:
- Tracy, the sister of the main protagonist, stores the items for Ness and co., but only in Ness's home and in Magicant. Item Guy appears in many places.
- Ness can use the Phone, to call in a delivery man to store in/check out items, at a cost of $18. Item Guy doesn't have delivery services, since Save Frogs replace phones.
- Significantly, he is seen in the Highway travelling in other places. That is a hint on how he gets to all places.
- The Memo menu shows that the Item Guy was supposed to have a tent where you could take a rest in, similar to Hotels and 2 of the tents in Winters (an Earthbound location), completely restoring everyone's HP and PP.
