Battle Memory

Putrid Moldymen are enemies in both EarthBound and Mother 3. Outside of battle, they resemble an ordinary Trash Can. However, if a character approaches them, the Putrid Moldymen will move toward them.

In EarthBound

In EarthBound, they appear in the Threed graveyard, and can bash a character or spread mold spores to inflict the Crying status ailment upon one character. They are resistant to Paralysis, PSI Fire, and immune to Brainshock.

In Mother 3

In Mother 3, they possess the ability to scatter poisonous spores, dealing damage to all party members with a chance of poisoning. They are resistant to apologizing (despite the fact that Salsa is not a playable character in Chapter 8) and sleeping, as well as being completely immune to Paralysis and poisoning.

His battle sound is Battle Sound 21 which falls under Code Numbers 500 for regular attack, 501 for Smaaaash! and 502 for Miss.
