Lucas (リュカ Ryuka?) is a character in the EarthBound/Mother universe, debuting in the Japan-only MOTHER 3 for Game Boy Advance.

Character description

LucasArtwork

Lucas

Lucas is the main protagonist of Mother 3. He is a timid young boy that is 7-9 years old at the beginning of the game and 12-13 at by the end. Lucas is Claus's younger twin. After the intro when he grows up, he is drafted by Wess to find Duster and Kumatora. He learns PSI and begins to battle against the Pig Mask Army to be able to pull 4 of the 7 sacred needles to awaken the dragon living under the Nowhere Islands.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee

A popular rumor states that in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Lucas was meant to replace Ness as a playable character, but Ness was included due to time constraints. The rumor was substantiated by Sakurai himself on July 17th, 2001 when he updated the original Melee site with Ness's profile. Quote Sakurai-san:

  • 実は当初、MOTHER3の主人公に変更する予定でしたが、いろいろあって遠回りしながら、元のさやに収まりました。
  • ("Actually, at first, I planned to change him [Ness] into the protagonist of MOTHER3 [Lucas], but for various reasons during the delay, I settled back on the original idea.")

Sakurai states that Ness was intended to be replaced by the protagonist of MOTHER3 (Lucas) in Melee, but since MOTHER3 had been delayed--indefinitely, at the time--Ness returned for SSBM. Both Ness and Lucas appear as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Lucas has been confirmed to be a new playable character for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, accompanying Ness as a representative of the EarthBound series. His Special Moves have been revealed on the Super Smash Bros. DOJO!! website. The majority of Lucas's Special Moves are much like Ness's moves from the previous two games. [1] [2]. Ness does in fact return as a hidden character, and his special moves differ only slightly from Lucas's. For example, Lucas's PK Thunder goes through opponents, while Ness's PK Thunder does not, indicating him as a semi-clone, though his other attacks are mostly unique.

One of Lucas's costumes in brawl roughly reflects what his brother, Claus, looks like.

Trophy Info

The younger of twin brothers living in Tazmily Village in the Nowhere Islands. He's a kind boy who can communicate with animals, but he's shy and never really got over the tragedy that struck his mother. He fights a warped dictatorship, hunts the Seven Needles, and crosses swords with his missing brother, Claus. In the end, the young boy with psychic PSI powers grows up.

Trivia

  • Lucas's PSI shapes are polygon based compared to Ness' which are circle based. This may just be a way to tell the attacks apart. Most seen in the dash attacks.
