A mini is a creature created by a misspelling usually, though not always, made in fanfics. A mini may be adopted, though if it is part of an Official Fanfiction University, one has to ask permission from the university head. Minis, unfortunately, cannot accompany agents on missions, but they're good for chasing off intruders and disposing of the body of your latest Sue.
Creating New Mini Types Edit
PLEASE READ BEFORE ADDING!
The creation of new mini types is reserved for either a) the creator of the OFU in that continuum, or b) if there is no OFU, the first person to write about them in a mission to that continuum. The reason for this is that, while it's fun to dream up mini types, it isn't fair to the people actually writing in a new continuum if the perks of doing so are gone when they get there.
There are probably some instances in which minis were named before this rule was agreed upon. In that case, if the original mini-namer can't be found and there are no instances of that type of mini anywhere, it's probably okay to petition the Board to make them something different if you want to.
If you are adding a new mini type, please include your source for it. Also, if you see something without a source and you know where it came from, please add the source. Thanks!
Non-Continuum Minis Edit
- Mini-Agents are rarely observed; they tend to be edited out of existence before they have a chance to spawn, but a few have been sighted on the Board.
- Mini-Boarders are usually small versions of the Boarder whose name was misspelled.
- Mini-Sues are created when a Suethor misspells his own Mary Sue's name. They tend to be pink and glittery, but not as dangerous as the Sue herself.
- Cliffie is created by a badfic author overusing cliffhangers at the end of chapters and calling them cliffies. First mentioned by Indemaat.
- Mini-authors, while not unusual, do not have a unique form. Instead, they take on the mini-type of the continuum they were created in (i.e., Stephanie the mini-Sparklewolf, Tokein the mini-Balrog, etc).

The original version of this list was created by Tawaki on the PPC LiveJournal.
Ace Combat — mini-Razgrizes — First mention by Sergio Turbo

Air Nomads create mini-Sky Bisons, Water Tribals create mini-Unagi, Earth Kingdom subjects create mini-Badgermoles, Fire Nationals create mini-Fire Dragons, and Republic City-related people and events create mini-Fire Ferrets. — The minis of the four nations were first mentioned by PitViperOfDoom and Republic City's minis were first mentioned by firemagic. Unaffiliated or miscellaneous minis take the form of mini-Flying Lemurs, and all minis default to this form when sent to the Official Fanfiction University of Avatar: the Last Airbender.
