ライト Dokutā Raito) is a character that appeared in the SNES version of SimCity. In Super Smash Bros., he is seen as a trophy in both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl as well as an Assist Trophy in Brawl and SSB4.


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.
