Mother 3 is Chuggaaconroy's 5th Let's Play. With 108 videos and a time length of 16 hours, it is one of his longest Let's Plays to date.
Having completed Earthbound and Mother as his first and second Let's Plays, Emile went back to the Mother series for his fifth and most ambitious Let's Play. Mother 3 was facilitated by use of an emulator and the Mother 3 Fan Translation.

Memorable Quotes and MomentsEdit
- When trying to get back sprites for Spud Bugs "For The Love of Hilary Duff on a Stick!" -Chapter 1 Episode 10
- Ionia In the hot spring with Lucas
- All of the voice acting, most notably Porky, and the Finale, where several other YouTubers pitched in.
- Episode 4-4, and the monotonous job Chugga was doing in it. This eventually led to sped-up footage, complete with chipmunk speak.
- "It's the floating dis-em-bodied head of Porky!"
- Having ProtonJon play Rope Snake in the Finale
- The intro to "Last Episode Part 1"
- Waiting for Mini Porky to finish the Purple Bridge Race
- Chapter 6
- Saying that Earthbound will not be re-released in North America, only for Nintendo to announce it 4 years later.
- Tanetane Island
- Praising the soundtrack
- During the rematch for the Fierce Pork Trooper, when the Trooper "jumped on top of Kumatora and punched away", he responds with " I wanted to be on Kumator-EEEEWWWWWWW!!!!!"
- This Let's Play was probably the start of Chuggaaconroy's running gag of having a "crush" on characters inside the game, especially those with red-hair, with his on going joke of having a crush on Kumatora.
- At one point during the Let's Play, the Kumatora fanart (created by Matilda Caboose) was heavily criticized and received negative feedback to the point that the original artist received death threats and other ridicule. Chuggaaconroy removed and reuploaded videos with edited art and at one point created a audio vlog on his channel about the issue, expressing complete disappointment and disgust with the fans. This video was since then removed and the situation has been resolved.
- Chapter 8 Episode 15 had to be uploaded on Machinima due to the 10 minute video time limit, which would have cut the fight in a bad spot. Machinima didn't reference Emile in the video, the title, or the description. They also added a huge watermark and their Machinima original intro, sparking a bad reaction from fans in the comment section. For a while, the episode wasn't reuploaded on Emile's channel when the time limit was extended, likely because he didn't have the original recording at the time. After Machinima deleted all the videos in the channel, Emile reuploaded the video to his channel, unlisted to avoid giving spoilers.
