— Inscription on the statue

The King Statue is an optional superboss in Mother 3. It is a near-invincible statue in the likeness of Porky Minch, that can only be fought after Boney is found in New Pork City's sewers and rejoins Lucas' party.

In Mother 3Edit

The first time Lucas interacts with it, he simply reads the inscription on the statue. The second time it is read, Lucas gets the feeling that the statue is staring at him with intense hostility. The third time, Lucas is allowed to return the statue's feelings of hostility, causing the screen to shake and the King Statue to attack the party.

Boss BattleEdit

The statue has 100,000,000 hit points, but using the New Year's Eve reduces this amount to 1 (though it may turn out to be a useless dud), making it possible for Lucas and co. to defeat the King Statue in one or two hits. PSI Flash can also be used against the statue, but this technique is often ineffective during the battle. It gives more wealth than any other boss in the game. After defeating the King Statue, the man standing near the statue's pedestal will give Lucas and friends the Trivia Card 4 if he is talked to.

Creation and RelationsEdit

It is heavily implied that the King Statue is a satire of the real-life Statue of Liberty; not only do their respective locations differ by only a letter (New Pork City and New York City, respectively), but both stand on pedestals, wear a crown, are in the same position, and carry an item with great symbolism in each hand.

Boss Battle Game CrashEdit

People have tried to beat the King Statue without a New Year's Eve or PK Flash. Most are defeated long before the 100,000,000 hit points are gone. It is possible, though quite tedious, to defeat the statue through means other than the New Year's Eve and PSI Flash. However, cheats would be needed in order to survive the magnitude of King Statue's attacks.[citation needed]
