Sunstroke is a status ailment in the 1995 video game, EarthBound. It is gained by lingering in the desert for too long. Like Poison and Nausea, this slowly drains health until the party member is rendered unconscious. This can be cured by visiting the hospital, by using PSI Healing, or using a wet towel. Ness does not get sunstroke as often as Paula, Jeff and Poo do because he wears a cap while the others do not (Also, Paula's ribbon can't protect her from the sun even if she does have headwear).
