Dr. Wright (ドクターライト) is a character that appeared in the SNES version of SimCity who makes an appearance in Super Smash Flash 2 as an Assist Trophy.

Character description

In the SNES version of SimCity, the player is cast as mayor, assisted by Dr. Wright. Named after the SimCity 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 as a Godzilla-like attack from none other than Bowser. He later reappeared in this role in the Japan-exclusive SimCity 64, which was developed by HAL Laboratory.

As a character appearing in an old port of a primarily PC-based series not owned by Nintendo, Dr. Wright is one of their most obscure properties, although he is the basis for the characters Mr. Write and Dr. Left from The Legend of Zelda games. Though the SimCity series belongs to Maxis and Electronic Arts, Nintendo does own the character himself.

Dr. Wright appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Flash 2. When summoned, he jumps into the air and, upon landing, uses his baton to erect skyscrapers in front of him, dealing 12% damage and strong upward knockback to opponents hit by them. Almost immediately after summoning them, Dr. Wright pants and disappears along with the skyscrapers.
