The Writer makes cameo appearances in Dance Party, Omega Pirate, and Quadraxis Version, but becomes a main character in season 4. The Writer has a pencil that allows him to add things to the story, but only minor details-he explains that only the comic's real writer is capable of changing plot elements. In an alternate future, the Future Writer takes over Stick World'screator. In Issue 100, he is killed by the Future Writer, but when Samus considers reviving him instead of Oveur, he appears to her as a ghost and tells her that he would have to leave the comic soon anyway, as it is ending. He is later revived under unknown circumstances.
The Writer returns as a main character in the spin-off, T3H Zelda Galaxy. He appears to Link and Zelda as he does to Samus and Oveur-coming out of a cube called a Writer's Block. He tells Link that he has to save the world from Ganondorf.
