I do agree that Mii should be playable in SSB4. They would use a sports-based moveset and they would represent the Wii (verb/noun) series. Maybe the Mii could wield a Wii Remote that transforms into a baseball bat, a golf club, a tennis racket, a sword, and so on.
Customizable fighters? I don't think so... people will just make their Miis more broken than Meta Knight and Melee!Fox. LOL Unless there is a limitation to the customization process... kinda like how the stickers are placed on the trophy stands in Brawl?
Seeing as those Miis tend to go around quite a lot with Nintendo as of late (and taking over, at that!), there could be a chance for them to show up as playable fighters.
But, here is the catch: They're not like the other characters. And how? Customizable.
How do you set them up as customizable fighters then? Let's say, you'd start by going into the Options menu that has a feature to pick out one Mii in your Mii Channel (or whatever the next system uses for them), and then assign A-button movesets and individual B-button special attacks to them, taken from other characters.
Let's say for example, mine's moves would be set up like this:
A-button moves: Fox Standard B special: Mario (fireballs) Side B special: Link (boomerang) Up B special: King Dedede (jump attack) Down B special: Yoshi (ground pound)
Basically, think Emerl from Sonic Battle. And to prevent overpowering and the like, there's a limit as to what kind of moves you can assign to each Mii character. When you're on the character screen, press the same button to change character colors to change to the Miis that you saved with their custom movesets.
What's more? Maybe an extra/side adventure mode (without a story) that can center around them. As they press on through it, they could meet the other Nintendo characters and learn more moves from them, which you can switch around for your Mii before starting a level.
Along with that, exclusively to this mode, there could be a shop to buy stuff with coins (dropped from enemies sometimes) like several Nintendo-themed outfits and accessories.
That's all I've got down of it and just thought to get this up here. If you're going to add more and fix some things to it, go ahead.
In fact, I was pretty damn close.
I was right about them being customizable, but not like that.
...And wow, I even got outfits right! To think this was a month before Smash 4 was first announced.
I am in favour of Miis being playable in the next Smash, but I think their moveset should be made from their various appearances. Everything from Wii Sports, to Wii Play Motion and beyond should be considered for them.
That's what I want Miis to be. To represent their series.
Having them be three separate characters seemed like too much. Oh well.

But that's the thing, Miis aren't even "characters" like the others are. I don't see how their moves can be based on "Mii games".
Better yet, what is a "Mii game"? They appear in games in other franchises too, and even the occasional non-Nintendo game. They're used in stuff like the Wii series, but they're not "Wii series characters". And then there's Nintendo Land, StreetPass Mii Plaza, and Tomodachi Life, still not their "home".
Even the tip on their origins says that "they can be used for a wide variety of games". So in Smash, they were made to adapt to its gameplay. That's what they're here for.
Yeah, I gotta agree with Boo Destroyer here. Treating Miis the same way as the other characters would kinda go against the entire purpose of their existence. They're supposed to be an avatar for the player.
Plus, just giving them a set moveset based on Wii Sports games or whatever would be crazy dull compared to what we have now with them.
I want Wandering Heroes from StreetPass Mii Plaza. They are bunnies, cats, and dogs who primarily fight with swords and shields. They have access to magic but the magic they know is determined by the color of their shirts.
I imagine they would all have the same normal moves but different special moves depending on their shirt color. The special moves are all based on all 8 games: Find Mii, Puzzle Swap, Monster Manor, Mii Force, Flower Town, Warrior's Way, Ultimate Angler, and Battleground Z. Players can choose between pink/white bunnies, black/brown cats, or black/brown dogs for aesthetic purposes... but their special moves (including custom moves) are determined by what shirt color they choose when creating a Wandering Hero... there are 12 colors to choose so players have lots of customization options.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
