Giygas

Giygas, known in Japan as Gyiyg (ギーグ, Gīgu?) or Giegue in the unreleased English translation of Mother, is the main antagonist of the video games Mother and EarthBound. He is an evil alien being bent on destroying the Earth, and is referred to by the titles "Universal Cosmic Destroyer" and "Embodiment of Evil". He was created by series writer Shigesato Itoi, who based his portrayal in the sequel on a traumatic event in his childhood where he thought he witnessed a rape (it was actually a scene of lovemaking that turned into murder) occurring in a Shintōhō film entitled Kenpei to barabara shibijin. Some of his lines also come from the film, such as the line "it hurts..." Music composer Hirokazu Tanaka called him the "embodiment of evil," composing music for Giygas to suit the player's proximity to Giygas. Since appearing in EarthBound, Giygas has received very positive reception.
