Biography

Mrwrite.gif

Mr. Write is as a lonely letter-writer who sends countless letters to various people, but never gets any replies.[1] It is from this endless writing one could assume he gets the name "Mr. Write." He lives in a house on the border of the Mysterious Woods.[2] He is part of the game's trading sequence. Fittingly, the item Link delivers to him is a letter from Christine, a resident of the Animal Village.[3] He gives Link a Broom in exchange, seemingly because he has nothing better to offer.[4] When the letter is delivered, it is revealed that it is a love letter, and that Christine has enclosed a photograph.[5] Although Mr. Write believes the photo to be of Christine herself, it is actually an image of Princess Peach from the Mario series.[6] This is a reference to long distance relationships, since she is lying about what she looks like and Mr. Write believes he is writing to a beautiful woman.[7]

Trivia

  • Mr. Write is based on an advisor in the original SimCity, who had a nearly-identical appearance and name, Dr. Wright. The theme that plays in Mr. Write's house is also from the SNES version of SimCity, where it serves as Dr. Wright's theme.
  • A similar character later appeared in Oracle of Seasons, going by the pun of a name Dr. Left. The latter also a makes a returning appearance in The Minish Cap.
