Something I found accidentally while working on a hack with joshamajigger. This is a nasty little glitch where both you AND the enemy party lose the battle at the same time. In order for this to happen, you must be fighting an enemy that bursts into flames/explodes into bits, and it must be the only enemy left in the battle. Now, you need to make it so that this final action defeats all the currently alive members (there must be at least two, which will be explained later) in your party before the game shows the "You Won" message. If you do this, the game will tell you you lost the battle, and after you parse the text, it'll show you the "You Won" message, and it'll say you received a crapload of exp (however, you don't actually receive it, since only alive members of the party can get exp at the end of battle) and the game over screen will show up afterwards, with very glitched graphics.

In some battles, you'll get so much exp, the game will freeze.

This was tested in EarthBound, however, I haven't tested to see if this glitch also occurs in Mother 2, but I can guess that it probably does.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This will NOT work if you have a party with a single alive member in it. The game will NEVER allow a single party member to take mortal damage from a final action attack (For example, if Ness and Paula are unconscious and Jeff is at 1 HP when a Smilin' Sphere explodes into bits, he will not take mortal damage from the attack.) This was probably added to avoid this glitch. However, the developers didn't think of what would happen if multiple party members are mortally wounded and killed by this final action, which is why the glitch occurs.
