Miyu is a tomboyish lynx from the Cornerian Army who, along with Fay, appears as a member of the Star Fox team exclusively in "Star Fox 2". Her name may be a pun on "meow," even though she is a lynx, not a cat.
After the original cancellation of "Star Fox 2", many elements were carried over to later games. It is possible that Katt Monroe, a lady cat ally of Star Fox, may have been based on Miyu. Miyu blows a kiss upon character confirmation, which matches Katt's flirtatious attitude. In addition, Katt's design in "Star Fox Zero" includes a golden earring on her left ear, which is where Miyu wore hers in "Star Fox 2" (however, this accessory is missing from Miyu in her 2017 artwork, which may be an oversight by the artist).
Miyu's 2017 artwork, in addition to the missing earring, also gives her a long tail. As lynxes do not actually have long tails this makes Miyu look more like a serval cat instead.
According to her artwork, she is the third-shortest member of the six-team Star Fox, after Slippy and Peppy (not counting her ears).
Lead programmer Dylan Cuthbert named Miyu because he personally liked the sound of it.
