Mabe Ness is Ninten's decenant?- 19:51, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Mother takes place in 198X and EB in 199X. Ness is already 13 in Earthbound, so For Ness to be even Ninten's son, Ness would need to have been born when Ninten was 9. Highly unlikely. 07:39, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

So then, shouldn't we move "it is also said that Ninten and Ana are the parents of Ness in "Earthbound"/"Mother 2", due to Ness' mother and Ana having similar character models, but this rumor has yet to be verified" to Trivia instead of Biography? It seems sort of unprofessional to put theories in the Biography section. 02:16, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Why did it say ninten's name was ken?

his japanese name translates to NINTEN (yes all caps) not ken! Tharthan 02:34, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Can we really say his origin is Podunk? His neighbour Pippi's Mother, who lives even closer to the town than Ninten does, asks him (I bolded the relevant line)

"Oh, what can I do? What should I do? Where can I go? Who can I see? What should I do? What should I do? My little Pippi is gone. If you're going to Podunk... Please tell the Mayor. Oh me, oh my!"
— Pippi's Mother

Since she basically says they aren't even in Podunk when she speaks to him, should we just say his origin (and Pippi's, and her Mother's) is north of Podunk? Ant1pr0t0n (Talk) 19:17, December 11, 2011 (UTC)


Ninten 3

As you've probably noticed if you viewed Ninten's page recently in Source mode, the picture names (other than the failed teleport one) are "Ninten.png", "Ninten 2.png", and "Ninten 4.png". "Ninten 3.png", as seen to the right, is puzzling me. I thought Ninten walks and puts his hat down before sleeping in the cutscene before the credits, but I seem to be wrong. So, to make a long question short, does anyone know if the picture on the right appears in the game or not? Ant1pr0t0n (Talk) 20:07, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

I need someone with a better eyesight than mine...

I need someone with a better eyesight than mine to check if the Ninten depicted in the Mother Commercial is wearing black shoes or blue shoes. The quality of the YouTube videos are too bright for me to determine what color it is! Also, what color are his socks? SuperMarioS.Mario (talk) 22:15, September 18, 2013 (UTC)
