Ohter characters include the Nionu's love interest Romana, a mysterious bandit called Umbolt and a young squire named Tione.

PSI Abilities

In the game like the previous entries in the series, PSI is the psychic abilities used by the protagonists and antagonists in the game. In Mother 4: Redemption there are four categories for PSI abilities to fall into; Offense, Defence, Resistance & Ultimatum. The game also contains sub groups for the PSI Abilities using the Greek Letters like in the previous games, in this game however the are ten Greek letters used with all (except Gamma) returning from the previous games and the addition of Delta, Lambda, Mu, Phi & Psu (The complete group in order of weakest to strongest is Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Mu, Pi, Sigma, Phi, Psi & Omega).

Offense PSI Abilities

Most Offensive PSI abilities use the Greek Letters Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda & Omega. There are a few exceptions to this such as Fire, Freeze and Thunder not having Delta, Nightmare having Sigma & Blade having Pi instead of Lambda. Offense abilities are focused around attacking and dealing damage although they are not the only PSI Abilities limited to dealing damage but are some of the hardest hitters.

Backlash - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Blade - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Pi, Omega

Cross-Fire - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Fire - Alpha, Beta, Lambda, Omega

Flash - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Freeze - Alpha, Beta, Lambda, Omega

Frenzy - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Ground - Alpha, Beta, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Nightmare - Alpha, Delta, Sigma, Omega

Thunder - Alpha, Beta, Lambda, Omega

Defence PSI Abilities

Defence PSI Abilities commonly use the Greek Letters Alpha, Delta, Mu, Sigma & Omega as their abilities to some degree. Defence Up and Offense Down have Phi & Psi instead of Mu & Sigma, Double Down has Beta instead of Delta, Lifeup doesn't contain Mu or Sigma, Revival doesn't contain Alpha or Sigma, Shield & PSI Shield don't contain Delta and Refresh doesn't contain Sigma. Defence PSI Abilities commonly attribute to restoration or protecting the party members as such they contain abilities that decrease opponents offense and increase party's defence.

Defence Up - Alpha, Delta, Phi, Psi, Omega

Double Down - Alpha, Beta, Mu, Sigma, Omega

Healing - Alpha, Delta, Mu, Sigma, Omega

Lifeup - Alpha, Delta, Omega

Offense Down - Alpha, Delta, Phi, Psi, Omega

Magnet - Alpha, Delta, Mu, Sigma, Omega

Revival - Delta, Mu, Omega

Shield - Alpha, Mu, Sigma, Omega

PSI Shield - Alpha, Mu, Sigma, Omega

Refresh - Alpha, Delta, Mu, Omega

Resistance PSI Abilities

The resistance abilities primarily use the Greek Letters; Alpha, Lambda, Sigma, Psi & Omega. Counter, PSI Counter & Paralysis don't have Lambda, Defence Down & Offense Up have Delta and Phi instead of Lambda and Sigma, Harvest doesn't have Sigma, Hypnosis has Phi instead of Lambda and Parasite doesn't have Psi. Resistance PSI Abilities are mainly used with the intent of inflicting status conditions onto enemies or increasing the potential damage dealt by other attacks, despite their similarities in name Resistance PSI Abilities are generally the opposite of Defence PSI Abilities.

Brainshock - Alpha, Lambda, Sigma, Psi, Omega

Counter - Alpha, Sigma, Psi, Omega

PSI Counter - Alpha, Sigma, Psi, Omega

Defence Down - Alpha, Delta, Phi, Psi, Omega

Harvest - Alpha, Lambda, Psi, Omega

Hypnosis - Alpha, Sigma, Phi, Psi, Omega

Intoxicate - Alpha, Lambda, Sigma, Psi, Omega

Offense Up - Alpha, Delta, Phi, Psi, Omega

Paralysis - Alpha, Sigma, Psi, Omega

Parasite - Alpha, Lambda, Sigma, Omega

Ultimatum PSI Abilities

Ultimatum PSI Abilities are the most powerful but also the most dangerous of the PSI Abilities with several having dangerous repercussions. The only two Greek Letters common throughout are Alpha and Omega, they also all feature only 4 Greek Letters each. While some Ultimatum abilities were previously Offense PSI Abilities in previous Mother games they were increased to these sometimes considered legendary statuses.

Dark Void - Alpha, Delta, Sigma, Omega

Engulf - Alpha, Beta, Pi, Omega

Final Saber - Alpha, Lambda, Psi, Omega

Love - Alpha, Phi, Psi, Omega

Rockin - Alpha, Beta, Mu, Omega

Starstorm - Alpha, Delta, Lambda, Omega

Trivia Regarding the PSI Abilities

  • Revival is the only PSI ability without an Alpha form, this also means that every PSI Ability in the game has an Omega Form
  • PSI Blade & PSI Engulf are the only PSI to feature a Pi form, interestingly the both have similar attack animations
  • Due to the removal of the Gamma Form of PSI many four form PSI Abilities that return from previous Mother games have a significant difference between the power of the second and third form of the PSI, the most notable is PSI Rockin.
