Trivia

  • According to a file in the September 2020 Nintendo leak about CPU Miis, Saburo's nationality is Japanese.
  • According to the Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort files, Saburo's Internal ID in Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort is 000.
    • This makes Saburo the first CPU Mii to be added into Wii Sports, since Internal IDs are based off the order they were added in.
  • According to the Wii Music files, Saburo's Internal ID is 41.
  • According to his data file in Wii Music, Saburo's Mii ID is 80-4f-90-85 and his console ID is c2-3d-21-af.
    • According to his Mii ID, Saburo was created on August 30, 2006 at 9:42:44 AM.
  • On the cover of Wii Sports he is seen Boxing against another player, making him the only CPU Mii in the game to appear on the cover.
    • This means Saburo was the first CPU Mii to be pictured on a Wii Series game cover. This likely ties in with the fact that he was the first Mii to be added in to the game, which may be implying that the cover was made before all the other Miis with an internal ID after Saburo's were added in.
  • Saburo appears in 10 Swordplay Showdown Stages. He appears in stages 1, 2, 5, 8, 10, 14, 15, 17, 18, and 20.
  • Saburo is ambidextrous because he is left-handed in Tennis, but is right-handed in Baseball and Table Tennis.
  • Along with Marisa, Saburo is never faced against in Swordplay, Table Tennis, or Basketball after the Champion is beaten (unless he's a teammate of Maria or Siobhán).
    • This is caused by a glitch in the code where the game randomly picks an opponent by selecting an internal ID between, but not including IDs 000 and 099. Since Saburo's ID is 000, he is not in this range and therefore never appears after the Champion.
  • In contrast to other Wii CPU Miis, Saburo does not appear in Wii Fit, instead being replaced by a duplicate of Hiroshi. This is due to the fact that Saburo's data file is missing, with his internal ID, 000, being taken up by a duplicate of Hiroshi, who is 001.
  • He is one of the few CPU Miis to throw underhand in Baseball.
  • In his Wii Party artwork, he seems to be playing either Space Brawl or Cosmic Capers.
    • In another artwork, he seems to be playing Spin-Off as Player 1, along with Miyu, Keiko, and Kentaro.
    • Again, In another artwork, he is seen with his face plastered on a bingo ball from Bingo.
  • Saburo has a 55% chance of being a Pro in Baseball if the player's skill level is between 855 and 949 points. He is always a Pro if the player's skill level is between 950 and 964 points.
  • On the Wii Party Disc Channel startup screen, he is shown in a state where he is playing Spin-Off, happy, but he wears default clothing instead of a tuxedo.
