The Mechanical Octobot is an enemy that appears in EarthBound in Onett after Ness has defeated Ness's Nightmare. It appears to be a green version of an Octobot. It is the second strongest of the Octobot robots. It basically is an exact replica of the past Octobots, but it has also gained a new attack. Aside from shooting beams and stealing your items, this menace can also place a mystical electric field around you that will instantly numb the party member it hits. Luckily, this move misses often. Take it out fast with your hardest attack before it has a chance to attack.
