Dr. Wright (ドクターライト, Doctor Wright) is a character that appeared in the SNES version of SimCity. In Super Smash Bros., he is seen as a normal trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee as well as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. 4, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Dr. Wright made his first appearance in the SNES (and cancelled NES) version of SimCity. In SimCity, he acts as an adviser for the player, giving players tips on how to manage the city. 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 helped the player by giving the player hints and suggestions on how to get the city prosperous, while preventing its destruction from various disasters, natural and otherwise - including a Godzilla-like attack from none other than Bowser. He reappeared in this role in the Japan-only SimCity 64, which was developed by HAL Laboratory.
As a character appearing in games of a primarily PC-based series not owned by Nintendo - although the character himself is owned by Nintendo - Dr. Wright is relatively obscure. He is rarely referenced outside of Smash, although he is the basis for the characters Mr. Write and Dr. Left from the The Legend of Zelda games.
Dr. Wright appears as a trophy.
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.
Dr. Wright returns as an Assist Trophy with the same function as in Brawl.
This hardworking assistant is the most trustworthy partner a mayor could ask for. If trouble strikes your city, he'll be right there to offer advice. In Smash Bros., he'll attack by constructing a building in the middle of the battlefield. It's tough to aim but can launch your foes.
As the mayor's hardworking assistant, Dr. Wright will sometimes bring ideas to the table when it comes to the delicate art of city-building. Other times, he'll bring gifts! His gift to you in this game is an attack that makes a new building shoot up in the blink of a eye. Use it to become the architect of your enemy's destruction!
Dr. Wright appears once again as an Assist Trophy, and his behaviour is unchanged from the previous two games. The only noticeable change from the previous games is that his entrance animation is slightly different. He can be defeated if he takes enough damage, though doing so can be quite difficult due to how short he remains onscreen.
