Lighter's sprite from Mother 3.
|Appears in||Mother 3|
|First chapter||Chapter 1|
Lighter is a character in Mother 3. He lives with his son Fuel in a wooden house in Sunshine Forest. Bud and Lou are his employees, and Flint is his close childhood friend. Lighter is always seen carrying a piece of lumber on his back.
In Chapter 1, Flint and Thomas find Lighter hurt on the ground outside his burning home, and he tells them Fuel is still inside his house. After his son is rescued, he is transported to Jackie's Yado Inn to cure his injuries. Once Flint finds the path to Alec's house is blocked by fallen trees, Lighter comes to help clear them, despite his recent injuries. After they're cleared, Lighter is the one to knock Flint out after his outbreak. The following day, Lighter can give Flint the Manly Bandana after he visits Hinawa's grave.
In the second chapter he is not seen for most of its duration, due to it taking place at night. The next day, when his son spots Wess and Kumatora unconscious near the river, he takes them both to Wess' house, so they can recover. He humorously comments on how they have such a huge age difference for a couple.
Once Chapter 4 begins, Lighter has rebuilt his wooden house in the forest over the course of the past three years. He has not acquired a Happy Box during this time, and thus his house is struck by lightning from Thunder Tower.
Towards the end of Chapter 7, when most of Tazmily leaves to New Pork City, he can be seen alongside his son in front of the train station, pondering on whether they should leave or stay in the village. Lighter and Fuel are among the last people to leave the village.
