Shigesato Itoi (糸井 重里, b. 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.

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 {{Nintendo 64}} (he was ''really'' into bass fishing in the late 90s) and a health diary for UsefulNotes/NintendoDSi.

* HeAlsoDid: Unsurprisingly, many people in the west aren't aware of his non-''MOTHER'' work; it's kind of inverted in Japan, where ''MOTHER'' is just another thing he dabbled in and comparatively obscure.

* 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]]...

* TheMerch: This is how his site is supported, as it contains no advertisements. Memorably, his line of customizable ''Hobonichi'' day planners has sold over 300,000 copies (that's right, Itoi can make ''day planners'' sell like hotcakes). And yes, there have been ''MOTHER'' shirts at some point. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Also]], [[http://earthboundcentral.com/2010/07/shigesato-itoi-ramen/ ramen]].
