 Character description
In the SNES version of SimCity, the player was cast as mayor, assisted by Dr. Wright. Named after series creator Will Wright, he possesses tall green hair and eyebrows with a black toothbrush mustache. He wears spectacles and a brown suit with a purple bow tie, and holds a white baton. Dr. Wright is tasked with giving the mayor timely advice to help his budding city flourish and prosper, while preventing its destruction from various disasters, natural and otherwise - including a Godzilla-like attack from none other than Bowser.
As a character appearing in an old port of a primarily PC-based series not owned by Nintendo - although the character himself is owned by Nintendo - Dr. Wright is one of their most obscure properties. Most contemporary gamers were unaware of his existence until Super Smash Bros. Melee in 2001.
- The assistant to the mayor of SimCity, Dr. Wright was actually named after the creator of the game. As a player, you'd have to use your wisdom and experience to give timely advice to the mayor; if you did a good job, the city prospered. Dr. Wright is one of the leaders in the all-time, bizarre Nintendo-game-hairstyle contest.
- SimCity, 8/91
Dr. Wright uses his baton to erect three skyscrapers beside him, hurling players into the air. There is a one in ten chance that he will instead create super scrapers, covering a larger area and dealing more damage.
- A hardworking assistant to the city mayor. He has distinctive hair and spectacles and a dapper moustache. Dr. Wright has a comprehensive knowledge of city government and is happy to give you tips to keep your city running smoothly. In the game, he tracks your city's status and gives you gifts. There was a character reminiscent of him in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

 Assist Trophy Origin
Dr. Wright made his first appearance in the SNES version of SimCity. In SimCity, he acts as an advisor for the player. Throughout the game he gives players tips on how to manage the city. The purpose of SimCity was to make the city wealthy and have a large amount of population. A stated before, Dr. Wright helped the player by giving the player hints and suggestions on how to get the city prosperous. After a certain amount of time, Dr. Wright will reward the player with gifts for the city such as a casino or a bank.
- Interestingly, Dr. Wright is one of only three Assist Trophies in the game whose actual trophy is different from his artwork on the Smash Bros. DOJO!!. Lyn and Mr. Resetti are the others.
- If Dr. Wright is facing away from the stage into empty space, then he will sprout the building on the platform under him. If there are no platforms under the platform he is standing on, he will sprout the building where he is standing.
