Lighter is a fictional character in the 2006 video game Mother 3. He is the father of Fuel and a close friend to Flint. Lighter and his son reside in Sunshine Forest, just beyond Tazmily Village, and as such he is often seen carrying a large piece of lumber over his shoulder. He is also a widower. Before her death prior to the events of the game, his wife Coaleen enjoyed a friendship with Flint's wife Hinawa much like the one Lighter and Flint shared.
Lighter is one of the last inhabitants of Tazmily not to migrate to New Pork City until the game's eighth and final chapter.
