Ness is a metaphor for a modern American white male. His striped T-shirt is a reference to Chris-chan, suggesting he has autistic, asocial tendencies. Rejecting the modernity, he quits the society to live a house in the woods with his mother like a true NEET to pursuit a primitive lifestyle. His father is absent, alluding to the modern issue of broken families and lack of male role models. His neighbor Pokey is clearly a metaphor for a race of merchants, who probably wears a small hat too. As Ness is confronted by aliens, he has to go through the modern world to face its creations. Realizing that the Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race, he goes on a crusade to cleanse that society; but Pokey, as a metaphor for the merchants, tries to stop him. Enraged, Ness goes on a baseball bat beating spree, but it saved from his rage by loli tradwive Paula. As he's joined by nerds and Asians, Ness goes back in time to fight aliens and Pokey, who has now infiltrated banks and governments and has become the greatest ally to Giygas. Itoi suggest that the only escape from the evils of today is to go back in time, to the era before 1960s and civil rights, and remove (((them))) with physical violence. In a symbolic gesture, the Marxist evil, portrayed as an absurdist Bauhaus painting, is defeated with Christian prayer, suggesting it's the ultimate force in this world. We finally realize that the Dad on the phone was Jesus himself all along, giving us his guidance, and that only he can "Save" our progress.

So here's something I noticed.
If you check something that Lloyd can fix in EB Beginnings, Ninten says "Looks like something that sissy Lloyd can fix"
Where if you do the same thing in Earthbound, Ness says "Looks like something that genius Jeff could fix", so I at least think he's a lot nicer and appreciative, compated to Ninten who's more like pic related.
Not like smash bros autism though, just a good kid.

Compare how people drew Ness in the 90's to how he is drawn now.

Many people depict Ness as being a colored person for some reason and while people use to (correctly) ship him with Paula, he is now often shown to be in a time-travelling gay relationship with Lucas and/or Claus.

The 90's truly were a better time.

To be fair, this is relatively an small thing... but WTF is this shit. I didn't even knew spook was considered "racist" before even once in the past. Even if this change alone isn't enough to put the project into damnation, this shit sucks and no wonder people are mad about changing shit for the approval of just a bunch of twitter trigger-sensible faggots.
