"Most cops are good guys, but a few men in blue have agendas of their own. Stay in the shadows and out of their way to stay out of trouble."
— Description

Over Zealous Cops (あばれんぼうコップ, Hooligan Cop) are enemies in EarthBound, taking the appearance of a palette swap of Captain Strong. They can only be found on the Summers beach. They are extremely rare, to the point where one can play through the entire game several times over and never encounter one at all. Their attacks can do moderate to high damage.

They can be paired up with the Tough Guy, who is equally as rare.
