Article on WikiBound Jeff

Jeff Andonuts (ジェフ・アンドーナッツ, Jeff Andonuts) is a character originally appearing in EarthBound, as one of Ness' friends and a party member. He is the only playable character in EarthBound to lack PSI powers, so he uses guns and rockets instead. He appears as a Trophy in Melee and Brawl as well as an Assist Trophy in Brawl, SSB4, and Ultimate.

Origin[edit]

Jeff as he originally appeared in EarthBound.

Jeff first appeared in EarthBound. In EarthBound, Jeff is an intelligent kid who is the same age as Ness and is attending a school in Winters, but escapes in the middle of the night when he heard Paula's telepathical call for help, and arrives in the Sky Runner to save Ness and Paula from the underground cell in Threed, and joins them on the adventure. His signature weapons are the bottle rockets which only he is capable of using. There are three types of bottle rockets in EarthBound: bottle rockets, big bottle rockets, and the multi bottle rocket. Bottle rockets are one of the most effective items in EarthBound due to the large amount of damage they deliver to a single enemy. Starting with Brawl , Jeff appears as an Assist Trophy and uses the multi bottle rockets and one big bottle rocket. The side of the big bottle rocket in Smash reads "EAGLELAND" on its side, which is the name of Ness and Paula's home country in EarthBound. Jeff appears to be sweating whenever he appears as an Assist Trophy; this is likely based on him sweating nervously on the naming screen of EarthBound while awaiting the player's choice of name for him.

Jeff
Another of Ness's friends in EarthBound, Jeff is the only son of the famous scientist, Dr. Andonuts. Jeff is a mechanical genius, able to turn common, broken tools into complex weapons like the Hungry HP-sucker and the Slime Generator. He's a bit on the shy side but incredibly intelligent and brave in the heat of battle.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

In Brawl, he appears as an Assist Trophy. Once he sets it up and nervously takes cover, he launches four bottle rockets and one big bottle rocket, all of which home in on the nearest opponent. The number of times he does this is dependent on his summoner's standing in the current match; the lower their overall standing, the more volleys of rockets that Jeff will fire off. Regardless, there is a small chance Jeff will fire a second volley normally.

He's Ness's age but has the knowledge of an established scientist. He repairs broken items and makes them into other things. As his IQ increases, so does the number of things he can create.

North America One of the main party members in EarthBound, he attends Snow Wood Boarding School in Winters. Jeff takes after his inventor father, Dr. Andonuts, creating devices in his free time. One of these is the bottle rocket, which fires one large missile and four smaller ones. And sometimes one extra!
Europe This boy from EarthBound is the same age as Ness and goes to Snow Wood Boarding School. His dad, the genius scientist Dr. Andonuts, was the brain behind Jeff's weapon: the big bottle rocket. It's made up of four small missiles and one large one. And...who knows? Maybe you'll even get some extra firepower out of it!

Trivia[edit]

  • On x1.5 speed in Training mode, Jeff will always only shoot five missiles, four small and one big.
  • Oddly, neither Jeff or his bottle rockets cast a shadow in Ultimate.
