“Death by Mii…” or “How to Recover from Mii Loss…”

I have a daughter Athina, she is 6. Her girlfriend from across the street got also a Wii today. All the boy friends and girlfriends visited that girlfriend from across the street. So in her “despair” she deleted all her friends Mii‘s on our Wii (including mine).

Cool stuff being six.

I had a good laugh, although I couldn’t show it in front of her. While being very very serious, ehhh sort of father like, I tried to explain to her that friendship couldn’t be bought etc. and kept that lecture going for about half an hour.

She is bright and got the message. Being a father can be difficult… ;-)

A Mii is an avatar that you can use with some of the Wii games. Your score of a game “attached” to your Mii. So when my daughter deleted all the Mii’s, my and the other save games became attached to the default (I think) 6 Mii’s. Not that it really matters, my Mii from the Wii Fit game, still shows some overweight. :-)

So I have lost, more or less, my Mii Identity.

Also being a Database Administrator (OK – Geek) I was now thinking:

  • How do you recover from Mii loss?
  • Would be cool if “they” (aka Nintendo) had build in some export, import utilities
  • Full, partial, in time recovery methods on a Wii would also be very cool…

Yeah, being a “Wii User” can be fun.



If someone every reads this and has any influence with Nintendo regarding Wii development, please see this as an enhancement request. If developed (hint: there are lot of USB connectors on the back), I will stop my rants asking for Wii*Grid 2.0, a Wait Interface or Wii*Plus GUI development.
