The Urbz: Sims in the City (handheld)[edit | edit source]

Daddy Bigbucks is the main antagonist of The Urbz: Sims in the City (Handheld). He plans to buy the entire city and turn it into an amusement park, and it is up to the player to stop him.

The Sims 2 (GBA)[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 2 (GBA), Daddy Bigbucks is the main antagonist. Although he rarely appears in episodes themselves, he has a great presence in the game. The player will see him each time they go to main menu (the one that contains social moves, episode selection, etc.) or whenever they pass out. He will also call the player some time each episode to take them out of the game in order to have a "commercial break." He is orchestrating many of the troubles in Strangetown and has hired the player to be the protagonist of the show. He also hired Burple, and Emperor Xizzle to be the show's antagonists, but this is not necessarily relevant until the end.

In "It All Came to an End," he will task the player with getting an upgraded Super Drencher from Emperor Xizzle and use it on Optimum Alfred, explaining that he wants an antagonist that he can actually control. The Super Drencher will then make Optimum explode, and he will tell the player to collect all of his pieces and get someone to put the robot back together again. After the player does that, Optimum tells everyone that they are in a television show, and the player will land in jail. Daddy Bigbucks will offer to bail the main character out if they can convince the At this point, the plot branches off into two endings. You can choose to ally with Bigbucks, where you will be asked with convincing three people that they are not actually in a television show and get Optimum to leave, or you can refuse, and at that point you will have to destroy all the cameras in town. If you choose to ally with him, he will make a handful of the townspeople apologize personally to the player, will say that next season, they will be a superhero and the Mayor of Strangetown. If the player does this ending, the ending cut scene will be of him and Emperor Xizzle in a hot tub sailing away on a massive ship. If you choose to not ally with him, the ending will be of Emperor Xizzle standing up to Daddy Bigbucks and the aliens kidnapping him into their spaceship.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although it is said that he is the richest Sim around, Vincent Moore[TSLS] is the richest Sim in The Sims games, due to the money cap at §999,999 in the handheld versions, while PC platforms allow up to §9,999,999.
  • In The Urbz: Sims in the City, it is not possible to socialize with him until you beat the game (GBA) or finish the Miniopolis missions (DS), unless you invite him over.
  • His voice is reused for the butler in The Sims: Superstar.[confirmation needed]
  • His name is a reference to Daddy Warbucks from the comic strip: Little Orphan Annie,
  • He is one of the few Sims who dislike the Jibba Jabba interaction in The Urbz: Sims in the City for Handhelds.
  • He has a mention in an unused episode in The Sims 2 (GBA) named "Save Strangetown!" and the description reads "Daddy Bigbucks is planning his most vile trick yet... but the secret of Strangetown won't be a secret for long." However, it can be assumed that this episode is likely a draft version of the episode "It All Came to an End" due to the similar premises.
  • Daddy Bigbucks was going to be the original owner of the hotel in The Sims 2 (Nintendo DS). However, in the final game, there is never a confirmed original owner of the hotel.
