They allow users to capture a likeness of themselves and others (family, friends, characters etc). They can be used to represent the player via Nintendo Wi-Fi conection. After creating one using the either the Mii Channel on the Wii, or the Mii Maker on the 3DS, they can be featured and played as in a number of games which support Miis. Notable titles in which Miis feature are Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit, Wii Music, Pilotwings Resort and Mario Kart Wii to name a few. Wii systems can store up to 100 Miis
Role In Wii SportsEdit
Miis have a big role in the Wii Sports games as they are the only characters in the games. The player chooses a Mii from the mii channel to play as in the events. Also, spectators in the games are often other Miis from the consle's Mii channel. Wuhu Island and Wedge Island are inhabited by Miis. There are also lots of Mii characters created by Nintendo for the game. These characters are the characters that the player competes against in the events but there are also a few other characters such as Miguel and Vincenzo who have other roles in the games.
Creating a MiiEditWhen a player creates a Mii they must first chose gender. All male Miis have shirts and all female have dresses. The creator can then change the shape of the mii's head aswell as alter height and weight. They can then edit the skin colour, eyes (style, size and colour), hair style and colour, nose, eyebrows and mouth. Extra features such as glasses, facial hair, a mole, wrinkels, make-up and hats can also be added. A nickname then has to be given to the Mii. The creator can then assign a birthday to the Mii, change it's colour of clothing ormake it a favorite.
When a Mii is created the user can chose to make them a favorite. This changes the Mii's trouser colour from the default grey to red. Up to 10 favorites can be stored on the Wii.
Mii Maker (3DS)Edit
The Nintendo 3DS comes also with a Mii Maker. The software allows you to take a photo, which then converts into a Mii, which can then be further tweaked.
