A Mii is a customizable avatar used on several Nintendo consoles and mobile apps. Miis were first introduced on the Wii in 2006, and returned on the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, the Nintendo Switch, and various Nintendo smartphone apps. Miis are based on humans, and they can be created using different body, facial and clothing features. Miis can be used as characters within games on the consoles, either as an avatar of a specific player, such as in Wii Sports, or in some games portrayed as characters with their own personalities. Miis can be shared and transferred between consoles, either manually or automatically with other users over the internet and local wireless communications.

Miis appear in a few Square Enix games exclusively for Nintendo consoles. The first Square Enix game in which Miis appear in is Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time, and it is possible to port them over to the Nintendo DS version. Aside from this, Miis also appear in two other Wii games developed by Square Enix, Mario Sports Mix and Fortune Street, both of which are a crossover between Nintendo's flagship Mario franchise and a Square Enix property. Since Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Miis have also been playable in the Super Smash Bros. series.

History[edit]

Mario Sports Mix[edit]

In Mario Sports Mix, Miis are one of the nineteen playable participants. They are the All-Around type, with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Ninja. Despite their height and width, they all receive the same stats: 3/5 in every stat. The color of their outfits depend on their favorite color and their clothing depends on their gender; male Miis receive a sporting outfit, while female Miis receive a skirt. Miis are also seen as spectators. They do not appear as opponents in tournaments.

Miis receive voices in this game, which is somewhat rare in their playable appearances in general. Male and female Miis are voiced by Greg Irwin and Bianca Allen, who also respectively voiced Black Mage and White Mage.

Their special ability is very similar to Mario's special ability; they throw the object into a goal which can be blocked by a struggle of the opponent. In dodgeball, the shot causes a damage radius that hits anyone inside the radius.

Real life Miis made an appearance in various North American commercials. They are sports anchors during these commercials under the names Mii-guel (later Michael) and Mii-chelle (later Lisa), showing gameplay footage to the players in various segments like the Super Top 3 Show. They announce a press conference on the day of the game's release, asking questions for Mario.

Fortune Street[edit]

Miis are playable characters from the start of Fortune Street. If the player decides to start a solo profile, they have to choose a Mii for their profile. The only characters the player can use in solo mode is their Miis. The player can unlock clothes to dress up their Mii in the Dressing Room. Miis do not say anything to the other players; the time where they would talk is replaced by two of the Mii's opponents talking to each other. The color of the Mii's shop depends on the color of the Mii, but if one or more Miis have the same color, they will be changed depending upon order chosen.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Miis are the only playable characters in the Super Smash Bros. series represented with the Super Smash Bros. emblem and the only fighters in the series not to be fought in All-Star Mode.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Miis (named Mii Fighters) are playable fighters in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. They represent the Super Smash Bros. series in their emblem, even though Miis do not originate from the Super Smash Bros. series. When creating a Mii Fighter, the player can select it to have one of three different classes: Mii Brawlers, Mii Gunners, and Mii Swordfighters. Brawlers specialize in fighting melee style, while Swordfighters and Gunners utilize a sword and a gun in their movesets, respectively. Each class can select four out of twelve special moves, making up a total of 36 special moves. When playing online, Miis can only be used when playing in With Friends mode.

When customizing a Mii, the player is able to equip it with custom outfits and headgear, with more available to be purchased as DLC. In terms of equipment, all Miis can use the Jacket and Boots equipment; Mii Brawler can use the Gloves; Mii Swordfighter can use the Sword; Mii Gunner can use the Arm Cannon.

The Multi-Man team is also composed of Miis, called the Fighting Mii Team, which replace the Fighting Alloy Team from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Miis are loaded from those saved on the console and given a random class of Mii Fighter. These Miis are dressed full black, and cannot use shields, special moves, and items. They also cannot grab ledges, but will use a Footstool Jump on other Miis to recover.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, regular Miis also appear in the Tomodachi Life stage, also randomly loaded from the system.

At E3 2014, where the Mii Fighters were first officially revealed, Masahiro Sakurai explained that Miis were considered to be included as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but they were ultimately not included as Sakurai felt that it did not seem right at the time for Miis to be punching and kicking.[1] The Miis were also removed due to online bullying and Sakurai thought that the Miis had a lack of character to themselves and would not be interesting enough characters.[2]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Artwork for the Mii Fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Mii Fighters return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Their proportions have been altered so that they have smaller heads, and their default clothing have been altered as well. Additionally, players can choose between 12 different voice options to set for their Mii Fighters, each of which can be played at three pitches: low, medium, and high. In total, Mii Fighters have 36 selectable voices, all voiced by different voice actors:[3]

Additionally, the Mii Fighters are unique in the sense that they are the only characters to retain custom specials. Though Mii Fighters still have customizable outfits, their body proportions cannot be adjusted in-game; Mii Brawlers have set weights of 94 units, Mii Swordfighters have set weights of 100 units, and Mii Gunners have set weights of 104 units.

Along with being able to create a custom Mii Fighter, the default ones representing each type can be unlocked after rescuing them in the World of Light. When a Mii Fighter type has been rescued, players will also gain access to using their own custom Mii Fighters in the World of Light.
