- "Brother, I'm so scared! The lamp seems to be alive!"
- — Minnie
The Lamp is the first boss in EarthBound Beginnings. When the game opens to Ninten's home under the influence of a poltergeist, this possessed lamp attacks the boy, posing as his first enemy. Afterwards, Ninten must venture out into other parts of the household and defeat two other items also affected by the poltergeist, which include another Lamp and a Doll. The beginning of the game is the only appearance of the Lamp.
