Prime Ribs are Ninten's default favorite food in EarthBound Beginnings. He, Minnie, Mimmie, His mother, and His father all like this food just as much as Ninten himself does. Because there is no Don't Care option in Mother, the player has to name Ninten's favorite food by themselves. This food restores all Psychic Points and Hit Points to Ninten and his party. However, because it is not an actual item similar to Ness' favorite food, Steak, it is impossible to obtain and can only be consumed by visiting Ninten's mother. Because Prime Ribs are not an item like Omelets, there is no description for this food. It is impossible to name Ninten's food Prime Ribs in the English Prototype of Mother, due to English letters taking up more space than Katakana or Hiragana.
