Mr. Write is as a lonely letter-writer who sends countless letters to various people, but never gets any replies. He lives in a house on the border of the Mysterious Woods. He is part of the game's Trading Quest. Fittingly, the item Link delivers to him is a Letter from Christine, a resident of the Animal Village. He gives Link a Broom in exchange, seemingly because he has nothing better to offer. When the letter is delivered, it is revealed that it is a love letter, and that Christine has enclosed a photograph. Although Mr. Write believes the photo to be of Christine herself, it is actually an image of Princess Peach from the Mario series. 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.
Mr. Write owns an orange Bird (also the color of Christine's bow) while Christine owns a green bird (also the color of Mr. Write's hair).
- 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.
- This is technically Mr. Write's second foray into the Mario franchise (via Christine's "photo" of Princess Peach), as the SNES SimCity game had Bowser cameoing as a kaiju-style disaster event.
- 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.
His name is a reference to the fact that he loves writing letters.
