"Thorns (Beta Mix) - Friday Night Funkin'" is a high quality rip of the beta mix of "Thorns" from Friday Night Funkin'.


The rip plays gameplay footage of a modded version of the level with the following changes:

  • Spirit is replaced with Giygas from EarthBound.
  • Both Boyfriend and Girlfriend have been turned into EarthBound-style robots, referencing overworld sprites used in the Cave of the Past. In addition, Boyfriend wears a cap based on Ness'.
  • The music in the cutscene has been replaced with "Giygas Intro" from EarthBound.
  • The level's background has been replaced with the Devil's Machine in the Cave of the Past.
  • The dialogue boxes are based on EarthBound's.
  • Spirit's monologue is replaced with the following:

    ...i'm h...a...p...p...y...
    it hurts...
    it hurts...it hurts...it hurts...

  • The track is arranged using EarthBound instruments and sound effects, with Giygas sounds heard throughout. In addition, parts of the vocal melody are changed to sound like "Pokey Means Business!" from EarthBound.
  • As is customary with most Friday Night Funkin' rips, Boyfriend dies despite winning the level. In this case, he turns into an EarthBound-style ghost.


  • Like most of this game's rips, the rip's mod files are linked in the description instead of the playlist link.
    • The edited Boyfriend and Spirit icons are inexplicably not included in the files.
