The Mii is a customizable player avatar that has become a staple of Nintendo games and systems since its introduction in 2006. The Miis were originally introduced and associated with the Wii system (their name being "me" with the same alternate spelling used for the Wii), and since then Miis have also been used for the 3DS and the Wii U. They have been primarily featured in Nintendo's casual first-party titles, and there are also features which allow Miis from other systems to visit through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
The Miis are featured in the Mii Channel. This is where players can create their own Miis and showcase them within the Mii Plaza. The maximum amount of Miis is 100. The Mii Parade feature could be used to see other people's Miis. Miis also play roles in other channels, such as the Check Mii Out Channel, where Miis can be rated by others.
The 3DS has a Mii Maker application where Miis can be created, viewed and sent or received to others. This Mii Maker has an optional advanced method where the 3DS's camera will take a picture of the player's face, and the system will try to form a Mii matching the face. Miis could also be transferred from the Wii to the 3DS.
Miis are further personalized in this game, as the player can attach a quote to the character and list their favorite game. There is also a new, separate Mii Plaza app where the player can play minigames with visiting Miis who arrive through StreetPass. The minigames include Puzzle Swap and the RPG-like Find Mii.
Miis have made a variety of appearances since their debut. While they are playable in some games and in other cases are worked into crowds or other minor appearances, some games merely use the Miis as icons for save files or features such as the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and StreetPass. They are primarily used for first and second-party games, but they have also been widely used in third-party games for the Wii and DS, including some playable roles.
- Miis have been used to represent save files in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Strikers Charged and Super Mario 3D Land.
