I really love Mother 3, and it breaks my heart that there might never be an official translation (although the folks at are doing good work with their fantranslation, go give them love and support). Listening to Unfounded Revenge/Smashing Song of Praise from the Super Smash Bros. Brawl soundtrack reminded me of how much I loved the game and its soundtrack and its characters, and here we are.

THERE ARE SOME MOTHER 3 SPOILERS IN THIS AS A WARNING. I don't know how much sense they'd make out of context, but if you ARE trying to avoid spoilers, then I probably wouldn't watch this. It's up to you though.

Anyway, when I pictured this I had in mind those elaborate, pixelated black and white animated GIFs you see around occasionally, the ones with very detailed animation in a small space with limited colors. But to sync it with the music right, I went with Flash instead, thus why the entire thing is only in black and white. Deliberate stylistic choice, not laziness. |D The Smashing Song of Praise part also wasn't me being lazy, I just pictured it in my head as still shots so there you go.

I thought this'd be a quick project but it took way longer than I thought. :B

I love mother 3 also Its an awsome game but sadly Nintendo did not have the bugit to tranclate it at the time all we can do is just hope.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I took the time to watch a playthrough of Mother 3 with the fan translation patch, it is a truly wonderful, detailed, and well scripted game. Even with the occassional strangeness related to the translation, it held up well. Your animation embodied it well, so very well done. I enjoyed it. :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is an amazing animation of Mother 3! The game is one of my favorite games of all time! Amazing!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I highly recommend this for people who either want a taste of what's in MOTHER3, or people who want to look back on it. You included a lot of major scenes from the game and brought them together with possibly the best song choice available.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This is great, but would have been better in color.
