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: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
