Influence in the McLeodGaming media

In Super Smash Flash 2, many elements are included from the first two games of the EarthBound series, which were both developed by APE. Ness, the main protagonist of EarthBound, appears in the game as a playable character along with three stages originating from the game: Saturn Valley, Devil's Machine, and Fourside. Additionally, Mr. Saturn is an item hailing from the same game, and Starman appears as an Assist Trophy hailing from EarthBound Beginnings.
