It seems like everyone loves to make Mii versions of their favorite characters, whether they're from films, games, or television shows, and who can blame them? It's very satisfying to finish a Mii that turns out well and show it off, just to see if it's immediately recognizable. Considering that, it's no surprise that people send us lots of random characters, and often, they're Miis of characters that are just so brilliant, or from things that we love, and we can't resist them.

We dedicate this week's Mii spotlight to all the great character Miis we haven't seen yet ... and we wait with bated breath to see what else you guys can come up with after seeing this week's submissions.


We're suckers for presentation around here. Sure, anyone can make a Mii, and there are even lots of great examples already out on the internet for you to check out and modify and perfect. But there's just something that makes even a less-than-perfect Mii ten times better if it's presented well. Reader SeeTrapp admits that there's something missing here. "Too bad there aren't any friggin' cowboy hats...." he laments, and we agree -- but the presentation more than makes up for the lack.



In a similar vein, did anyone catch Jason Kottke's Celebrity Mii contest at the end of last year? If you've searched around for Miis at all in the 'net, like we have, it's likely you've stumbled across the post. The winner was Dave Curry with his super accurate Zach Braff Mii, and in celebration, he immediately photoshopped the unsuspecting Mii head onto a still of Braff in his film Garden State. The result is so hilarious that we couldn't resist sharing it here with you today.



But let's get back to what's important here -- reader submissions! Núshio sent us something he knew we wouldn't be able to resist: Phoenix Wright Miis. Anyone who's read us go on (and on and on) about the Ace Attorney and his finger of power over on sister site DS Fanboy knows that we're obsessed with the series.



We kinda mashed them in there for purposes of presentation, but we're willing to bet that Nick doesn't like being quite so close to Edgeworth. Núshio also sent us in this great Larry Butz Mii, but what we're missing here is Detective Gumshoe. Won't someone come through for us?



In the front there, you can see the ladies of the series, especially little Pearl, who's easy to pick out.

Our final two Miis this week come courtesy of Mii Spotlight regular, Ali420, for whom it seems no challenge is too great. These two Miis are both from classic television shows -- Colonel (later Sergeant) Klinger from M*A*S*H, complete with trademark dress, is immediately recognizable there on the right. On the left, of course, is the Mr. Kotter Mii we've mentioned a few times in past weeks. We issued a joking challenge for Miis from Welcome Back, Kotter, and Ali420 answered our call with style.



Thanks, Ali420! No one does it quite like you do.

That wraps up this week's edition of the Mii Spotlight. As ever, we're always on the lookout for new and interesting Miis. Send us whatever you've got: fictional characters, celebrities, weird and ugly Miis. Nothing is too strange or too offbeat for the weekly look at Mii Plazas everywhere. Just take a few photos and send them to us at mii [at] nintendowiifanboy [dot] com!
