Of course, that's [[HeAlsoDid not what he's known for]] in the western world. No, the west knows him better for something that to him and to Japan was little more than a little experiment in storytelling he did on the side. Around here, he's best known as the brilliant mind behind the ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'' trilogy of Creator/{{Nintendo}} video games, namely ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER|1}}'', ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' and ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}''. He's a good friend of Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto, Creator/HirokazuTanaka and the late, great Creator/SatoruIwata (who [[GeniusProgramming singlehandedly reprogrammed]] ''EarthBound'' from scratch midway through development, rescuing the entire project when all seemed lost), he served on the board of Nintendo subsidiary [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} HAL]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Laboratory]] for a while, and he is an occasional participant in the ''Iwata Asks'' interview series. Other video game endeavours of his include bass fishing video games for the SuperFamicom and UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 (he was ''really'' into bass fishing in the late 90s) and a health diary for UsefulNotes/NintendoDSi.

* HarmfulToMinors: Meta example. As a child, Itoi accidentally walked in [[Film/TheMilitaryPolicemanAndTheDismemberedBeauty a horror film]] while at a movie theater and saw what he thought was a rape scene. The scene traumatized him and ultimately inspired him to create Giygas.

* NiceHat: They're quite common in photos of him from the past three years or so.
* NightmareFuel: In-universe example, you could say - pretty much everyone knows the story behind him and [[Film/TheMilitaryPolicemanAndTheDismemberedBeauty the film]] that ultimately inspired Giygas, [[http://earthboundcentral.com/2008/02/shigesato-itoi-giygas-and-boobies/ but in case you don't]]... then maybe look it up somewhere else unless you know what Giygas looks like.

Shigesato Itoi (糸井 重里, born November 10, 1948) is a Japanese essayist and copywriter whose works are widely considered to have had a defining influence on modern Japanese culture. He's dabbled in pretty much everything at some point or another over the past thirty years or so - he's done books, he's done songwriting, he's done websites, he's done voice acting, he's done film, he's done television, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers he's done day planners]]... The man is an endless font of variety, really, and Japan loves him for it. He is perhaps most famous as an advertisement copywriter and designer, and has had a hand in a number of Japan's most famous ad campaigns in the modern era.
