The SimCity universe (シムシティー, SimCity) is a long-running series of open-ended world-simulation games. The first version for a Nintendo console was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System video game (simply called SimCity) which starred Dr. Wright, a Nintendo-owned character who would not appear again until Super Smash Bros. Melee. Later Nintendo versions included two Japanese-only Nintendo 64 games - the 64DD-only SimCity 64 and a cartridge-based port of the PC game SimCity 2000; the Wii game SimCity Creator and two Nintendo DS games, SimCity DS and SimCity DS 2 (known as SimCity Creator) outside of Japan). The series became a success and spawned various spinoffs including The Sims and Spore.

Trophy[edit]

Dr. Wright

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.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Assist Trophy[edit]

Dr. Wright has a more major role in Brawl, where he appears as an Assist Trophy. After performing a jump that deals extremely minor damage on an opponent, he will summon a skyscraper from the ground, which inflicts high damage and knockback on any opponent it hits. Occasionally, Dr. Wright can summon a skyscraper 3x the standard size, which is even more powerful.
