In the SNES version of SimCity, the player was 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; such as 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, Dr. Wright is one of their most obscure properties, with many Nintendo fans not being aware of his existence until his appearance as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Though the SimCity series belongs to Maxis and EA, Nintendo does own the character himself.
In Super Smash Flash 2
As an Assist Trophy, Dr. Wright acts very similarly to how he does as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. When summoned, he uses his baton to erect some sky scrapers beside him, dealing decent damage to players hit by them and hurling them into the air. He and the skyscrapers disappear almost immediately after they're summoned. Certain attacks can also immediately destroy the skycrapers.
