Clay scrow


Spiteful Crows, known in Japan as Detestable Crow, are enemies in EarthBound, found in various areas such as Northern Onett, Peaceful Rest Valley, and Winters. They are notable for being among the strongest of the game's early enemies. Spiteful Crows possess a very high Speed and the ability to steal items from the party. They can also peck at the party's eyes, and waste a turn with a big grin on their face.

Despite their strength level at such an early point in the game, Spiteful Crows can be beneficial to fight, as they always drop Cookies when defeated. Cookies restore Health and grant Well Fed.
