- "This little guy wants to be a sweet dumpling, but he's made of soot instead. He'd make a terrible snack."

The Soot Dumpling is a rare enemy in Mother 3, found in Sunshine Forest where Lighter's shack once stood. It can only be approached by walking towards it, as dashing makes it disappear. It rewards 1000 experience for defeating it, but due to its high defense stat, lack of weaknesses and high tendency to escape from battles, it's recommended to make use of combo attacks in order to defeat it.
His battle sound is Battle Sound 1 which falls under Code Numbers 439 for regular attack, 440 for Smaaaash! and 441 for Miss.
