They will be classified as a Mii Swordfighter in the game’s roster. You can mix and match the Mii’s abilities to help it suit the Skyrim resident better. To do that, follow these instructions:

  • Go to the main menu
  • Press A on Games & More
  • On the bottom left, there’s a little tab called Mii Fighter. Select this icon and confirm;.
  • Choose Dragonborn or Dovahkiin and change their move set from there.

The character is shown with the helmet that was deeply referenced in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s marketing materials. The sword and gloves look straight from the game with their Nordic-inspired designs. You can also find a Mii that has an unconvincing beard to fulfill the strange look.

After some loading, you’ll find a list of downloadable content. Scroll past the characters, and you should find the Mii costumes available. You can leave a checkmark on the right of the Mii costume to select the Dragonborn costume and then Proceed to Purchase. The DLC will only cost you $0.75.

After buying the costume, you’ll need to either create a Mii that looks like Dovahkiin or find one through the Shared Content section of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. To find a user-created Mii, here are the steps:

  • Go to Online
  • After it connects you to the service (you’ll need Nintendo Switch Online), go to Shared Content
  • If the Dragonborn isn’t in the Hot section or in the Mii fighters section (toggle to it with the R button), press X and search for “Dragonborn” or “Dovahkiin”
  • Download the Mii you think suits the character the best
  • Once downloaded, it will show up under Mii Swordfighter in the character selection screen.
