Matt is an AI Mii who you can face in the Wii Sports series who has a long history of being a very difficult opponent. He is the hardest opponent to face in Boxing and Chambara, but can be faced in other sports as well.

Why is Mii Matt from Wii Sports a meme?

The Mii Matt meme started when people started overexaggerating the toughness of the character. The combination of him being the pro boxer and his cold dead stare made room for plenty of funny memes to be made setting him as the toughest fighter in history.

Like any other meme, there is some truth to Matt being a very tough challenge for players in Wii Sports. If you were not that great at boxing, you probably spent a very long time trying to get him to go down. Kids growing up with the console could look up and associate his face with everything wrong in the world. He wasn’t impossible, but the number of people who have stories of their struggle to beat him is a lot.
