Nikki is the mascot Mii in Swapnote who gives you tips and rewards every now and then. When you download the Swapnote application from Nintendo eShop, Nikki is added to your Mii collection in StreetPass Mii Plaza.

Appearances

Swapnote

Nikki's Mii

Her first and Major appearance is in the 3DS application, Swapnote. Here she would instruct players how to use the feature, and after that players can chose weather or not to receive notes from her in the future. If players selected Yes, Nikki would continue to send notes to the player giving them updates on upcoming Nintendo news, as well as simply sending notes wishing them a good day, or sending words of encouragement.

After Swapnote had its online feature removed, Nikki sent a farewell note saying she was going away for a while. She wished the player luck, and then would leave.

Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!

Nikki later made another appearance in Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, delivering a free SpotPass lesson from Nintendo. In this lesson, she teaches the player how to draw a Goomba with pastels.

Nikki's Travel Quizz

Nikki is also the star of her own video game called Nikki’s Travel Quizz. Originally given out to Club Nintendo members who have had enough points to purchase it from the official site, it is a quiz game that features Nikki, her panda, and her cat.

Players travel to different parts of Japan, and Nikki will quiz players on certain locations, buildings, and peoples from said location. Nikki's Panda is capable of giving players hints if they are struggling to answer certain questions. Nikki will often times dress up in different outfits, such as a sailors uniform, or a kimono, when talking about a particular subject or while visiting a specific region in japan.

With Club Nintendo having been taken down, it is unknown how the game will be distributed now.

As an enemy Ikki hides in treasure chests and may randomly appear when opened. From there Ikki will phases in and out, turning invisible and then re-appearing in a random place in the environment, and toss projectile weapons at players.
