Hacks

Despite the size of the EarthBound hacking community, relatively few complete hacks for the game exist. Hat Quest and Mother 2.5: The Giftman Chronicles are short but complete and impressive. The first completed EarthBound hack, JonBound, also remains popular, though it was created at a time when much of EarthBound's data remained unknown.

Miscellaneous

Two debug menus exist in EarthBound's data. The latter uses a Kirby sprite as its cursor. There are two dummied items, the Video relaxant and the Temporary goods; the former has a description ("What the hey is this?"). A number of unused text blocks and graphics are also present. It is also worth noting that the structure of data in EarthBound's ROM is notoriously scattered and akward to the extent that many of its hackers joke that its programmers were under the influence of hallucinogenic substances.
