VGMythBusters Giygas by HerbalDrink VGMythBusters Giygas by HerbalDrink
This is mostly for ~Tails230 . Have you Earthbound Players ever heard of that, if you looked at Giygas, you can see the outline of a baby's head, and the static at the end was Giygas yelling "GET ME OUT OF HERE"?

Well, at least part of that is true...somewhat. If you look at the dark shape, you can see the outline of a baby's head. Where? Well, the best place to look is in the centre, slightly to the left. Where Giygas's normal "Face" appears is where the brain would be in the baby, and you can see a nose if you follow the outline.


Giygas and Earthbound/Mother are copywright Itoi, Nintendo, and HAL studios.

Demonic? Dude, this is a game about saving the world with psychic powers. Plus, you beat the final boss by Praying, not to any mythical beast, but the people you've helped in your adventure. Even the player himself.

-is also here from TvTropes- Here's a random joke I made.

So, let's say Giygas is a fetus, and the fight is a representation of an abortion. So, you are sent to destroy something that, when it is born, will mean the end for your civilization. You come from a future that isn't looking too good for you so you can destroy the thing before it's born so it can't ruin your chances of being the dominant species. Not to mention, when you reach the past, you're all in the bodies of robots. You know what this means?

NESS AND HIS FRIENDS ARE THE TERMINATOR!

It's not just the head, there's an entire fetus in the image, repeated over and over. Everyhing it says makes sense if you think of it as a fetus. It starts as a single cell then multiples morphs into a repeated iage of a fetus. It isn't a myth as you can see the detail of the facial features of the fetus and its brain snd its body curled up in the fetal position. Awesome enemy design, I was impressed.

Here's how it was taught, TO ME anyway:

Ness is told by Buzz Buzz that Giygas is a horrible overlord in the future, and because Ness has the power to stop him he is starting to corrupt and defile the present (Ness's time) to stop Ness.

After getting all the musical Macguffins, Apple Kid and Prof. Andonuts build you a time machine. It's not to go to the far future to fight Giygas; he'd be way too powerful.

He puts you in robot bodies and sends you back to the far PAST. You go into Giygas's ship, and travel up a corridor that looks suspiciously biological. It's the (rough) shape of a uterine canal; you go back, as robots, to fight Giygas in the womb and abort him before he was born. That's why you "cannot comprehend the nature of Giygas's attack"; he's a powerfully psychic fetus trying to fight off robot abortion.

Somebody on DeviantART in fact could have been a Trope Namer had it not already been named, since he actually shows an image of when you can see the Fetus in Earthbound. He also confirms that when the game starts to become staticy near Giygas's defeat, you do NOT hear Giygas crying for help, as the SNES's sound technologies are unable to handle that.

Once again, you're famous.

Wait, subliminal sound message? In which sound Giygas says "Get Me Outta Here"? During the static or in the exact moment he disappears? Please, tell me more.

It was proven to be a rumour - The SNES's sound systems weren't able to include such voicework clarity. Have you ever heard the voices for Star ocean and Tales of Phantasia(SNES)? It's rather distorted.

Have you ever heard voices on the NES? I was surprised to hear voices so clear on an NES game. Of course, there wasn't f***ed up music playing at the same time.

And I don't know how Golgo 13 had it, but even on the SNES with some games like Tales of Phantasia or Star Ocean, the voices seemed a little...well sorta like they were talking into a microphone covered in cotton.

I honestly do not believe it's at all intentional. Hell, i don't even really follow the "GIYGAS IS A FETUS" theory. It's a clever theory, nowhere to lie, and does acctually make sense, but it's just never been something i feel should be regarded as 'truth' or 'the only logical answer'.

And no. That distorted 'static' noise when you finally beat Giygas? It's that. Noise. Unintelligable noise. Which, if you ask me, is ten times more disturbing then a distorted cry of "Get me out of here!".

To be honest, i'm not even sure how people came to that conclusion. At the most, i'd say it's some kind of inhuman scream. Or as close to it as the SNES could muster. Otherwise, i have no idea what "Giygas Disintigrates" (what the 'music' is listed as on the soundtrack i've got) is supposed to be, but i sure as hell have no idea how anyone could image they could clearly hear a voice in there.

I'm a year late (and operating under a new account), but i figured i'd let you know where i grabbed the soundtrack; i picked it up over at Starmen.net. They've got all the soundtracks for the main 3 games in the series uploaded. Though bare in mind only Mother 1 and Mother 2 are in MP3 format- the Mother 3 soundtrack listing has it's tracks rendered as ".ogg" files.

I think the BIG thing people miss about the myth itself (the sounds etc.) and stating that it was a kids game..

IT WAS MADE IN JAPAN.
I doubt they dubbed static into English and I doubt this was a 'kids' game. It was a game simply. The target audience was gamers.

Also remember that the name of the game is Mother. Which actually might add more fuel to the fire that it IS an image of a baby.

Earthbound was around before the ESRB was, right?

It'd still only be rated E10+ because there's not really that much on-screen violence or adult themes.

I think it symbolizes abortion in someway, and in someways, not.

Giygas IS the scariest, most gut-wrenching horrifying
thing. EVER.

He, rather, IT symbolizes abortion in a way that the room that you find him in is a giant uterus.
He is the aborted fetus, destined to face the demons inside of him, which IS the abortion itself, it's quite complicated. Giygas in truth IS trying to make ness and co.
kill him, so he can be set free, from his eternal death inside a rotting shell.
Heavy, huh?
Anyway,
some people think that it symbolizes rape, and i can see how it could, i mean if a person were raped, it would be UNDERSTANDABLE to abort it since it was made in hate, but it is still WRONG to abort a new, pure, life.
Giygas has no form, no brain, no control of anything around it, he is just the single embodiment of evil.
Abortion.
It's kind of like the devil. The devil doesn't MAKE people do his bidding, he LURES them in with immense power, and they do what he wants because of that.

And i'm not a aging hippie liberal douche. I just think abortion is wrong.
