A Mii is a customizable character created by the player. Miis made their first appearance on Nintendo’s Wii console. Then, they appear on Nintendo’s 3DS, Wii U and Switch consoles. Miis allow players to create a caricature of themselves, other people, or of invented characters. They are created in the Mii Channel on the Wii, in the Mii Maker on the 3DS and Wii U and in system settings on Nintendo Switch. Once the player creates a Mii, they can use it in some of Nintendo's video games.
The player can change the look of a Mii in many ways. They can give it different hairstyles, eyes, nose, and mouth shapes. They can also give a Mii facial hair and wrinkles. Accessories such as hats and glasses can be added. The player can change a Mii's height and weight. On the 3DS and Wii U, the player can take a picture of their face, and the game creates a Mii for them. The player can then change their Mii.
