Lloyd, sometimes written as Loid and Roid (ロイド Roido) is a character and party member in EarthBound Beginnings. He is the only party member required to join Ninten in order to complete the game. Lloyd usually uses guns as his primary weapon, along with an assortment of different weapon items including bottle rockets, flame throwers, laser and plasma beams, and bombs to make up for his lack of PSI abilities and weak physical strength.
Lloyd is very intelligent, but has very low self-esteem and is physically very weak; often being called hurtful names such as "weenie", "weakling", or "sissy" by his classmates in Twinkle Elementary. Because of how he is treated, he avoids them by hiding in a garbage can on the roof of the school.
Because he is untrusting of others, he does not join Ninten until he first proves that he is not trying to pick on him by bringing him a bottle rocket from Sweet Little's Factory.
Lloyd appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker using his clay model from EarthBound Beginnings. Attaching this sticker to the bottom of Ness or Lucas's trophies in The Subspace Emissary increases their PK attack by 6.
- Lloyd (excluding Pippi) is the only party member in the game required to join Ninten in order to complete Mother, being essential in clearing the path to the Merrysville train station and reaching EVE.
- His Japanese name is Roido, which is a pun on roidomegane, meaning "round glasses with plastic rims", the kind of glasses he wears. His name may have been localized as Loid, and ultimately Lloyd because in Japanese, R and L are pronounced interchangeably, and Loid sounds like the name Lloyd. As further coincidence, Lloyd means 'grey' in Welsh, which happens to be the color of his hair.
- Lloyd has the fewest primary weapons in the entire Mother series only having two, the Stun Gun and the Air Gun.
- It is possible that Loid is Dr. Andonuts as a child.Since they both wear glasses,have gray-white hair and hide in garbage cans
