Unlocking the Mii Fighters in Smash Ultimate is deceptively simple. Most characters in the game's impressive lineup have to be unlocked by playing the game. They require wins in World of Light, or hours grinding out matches with friends. The Mii Fighter is the one exception to that rule in the base cast. 

Here's how to unlock the Mii Fighter in ​Smash Ultimate.​

The trick to adding the Mii Fighter to your list of playable characters is that, rather than being unlocked, Mii Fighters must be created. To create a Mii Fighter, select Games & More in the ​Smash Ultimate menu. From there, select Mii Fighters and hit Create.

This will allow you to customize your Mii Fighter's appearance and choose a fighting style from among three options: Gunner, Brawler and Swordfighter. All three have different mechanics and play differently, so it's worth experimenting to find your favorite.

Once you've completed that process, head back to the character select screen and you'll see your creation listed among the rest of the game's fighters.
