Ana (アナ), written as Anna in Japanese sources, is a character in Mother. She is normally the third character to join Ninten and is also the only member of his team, excluding Pippi, who is female. She usually uses frying pans as her primary weapon, along with many powerful PSI powers. Ana is a sweet young girl who lives in a church (or "chateau" in the English prototype) in the land of Snowman with her father, where she is famous for her psychic powers when she joins the adventurers. She dislikes using said powers and will only use them when truly necessary. Although she is not very brave and has never ventured out of Snowman alone to that point, she is described as kind at heart, with a great sense of direction. According to her character profile, she once saved frogs from being dissected in her school. Recently, she could not sleep because of her dreams. The people of Snowman became concerned about her when she suddenly stopped coming to school. Her mother has disappeared, and she wants to find clues as to her abduction in Easter.
Ana is considered a stereotypical heroine with weak physical strength, similar to her EarthBound counterpart, Paula. She reveals later in the game that she is in love with Ninten, although it is unclear whether she and Ninten remain together after the game's events; in the ending of the English prototype and Mother 1 + 2, however, Ana is shown reading a letter from Ninten implying that they do remain a couple.

Note: Despite fighting Giegue, he was not fighting seriously. He makes comments on wanting Ninten to be on his side (due to his grandparents taking care of Giegue) and thinking he doesn't deserve to get hurt/killed. By the time he gives up this idea they start to sing the eight melodies which weaken him. They also require the help of Eve to defeat the last few hordes of enemies in the game, who are far weaker than Giegue.
