Travis and Floyd in La Folia

In Mother 4, a game mechanic allows the player to choose to make it day or night by resting or staying at a hotel. Changing the time of day will change the enemies in the overworld, the non-player characters in the overworld, the in-game services available, the music for the area, and other things. Certain things can only be done in the daytime or the nighttime.[1] This game mechanic is not present in the official Mother games, where the time of day is purely determined by the story.
