    I think I have Miis in my vWii that I didn't create there but I can't find any way to send Miis from the 3ds to it or a way to copy from WiiU mode to Wii mode. I also don't have any DS games with miis. Is there any other way that I might have overseen?

    you can put Miis on Wiimote.
    that's one simple way.

    there are other ways with 3DS, but it involved hidden menu, I forgot how to unlock it.

    there's also savegameManagerGX which can backup/restore Miis.

    the wiimote is the fastest and simpler method.

    How would I save a Mii to a WiiMote from the 3ds? Also i think the vWii Mii Channel got that feature removed.
    Then that might be the way...
    Hm can it backup Miis from the Wii U mode?

    the hidden menu I talked to.
    I don't remember how.
    google it I guess :D

    no, from Wii and vWii only.
    I don't know/think you can share WiiU mii with (v)Wii Mii. I don't remember well. I never checked in fact, never needed Miis at all.

    Google isn't helpful on this issue.. I can't find anything about a hidden menu on the 3ds mii maker.

    I believe you can't transfer Miis from Wii U mode to vWii, because the Wii U Miis have some extra customization options that did not exist on the Wii. You can only transfer from vWii to Wii U mode.
    The same thing applies to transferring between Wii and 3DS - it's a one way transfer, you can go from Wii to 3DS but not back.
    It never bothered me too much, cause my vWii Mii Channel is full to the brim of Miis I downloaded from my friends through the Mii Plaza on my OG Wii way back in the day.

    Were there even DS games with Miis? :unsure:

    Yes, although they might not have been very popular.

    The Japanese only Tomodachi Collection was probably the most widely played one.

    Also, the secret menu Cyan mentioned is on the Wii's Mii Channel, not any Mii Maker. Just choose the transfer option on your 3DS, then pick the Wii option, and follow the instructions.

    Yeah that is only one-way though. Nevermind then.
