Mira is a shiba inu dog featured in the "Dog" ending of Silent Hill 2 as well as the "UFO" ending of Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Mira also appears a playable character in Silent Hill: The Escape and as a hostage in Silent Hill: Book of Memories.
Mira only appears in joke endings and is therefore not considered to be canon— however, it is still possible that Mira exists in the main video game continuity in some way.
Mira appears to be a very intelligent dog, ruling over the events of Silent Hill 2 behind a control panel. Mira also seems to enjoy listening to music, being seen always wearing headphones.
Silent Hill 2
Mira is first seen operating levers at a large computer panel while wearing headphones in the game's "Dog" ending, listening to "In My Eyes" by Akira Yamaoka. James Sunderland walks in and voices in Japanese his disbelief that a dog has been behind the events that brought him to that point. He then falls to his knees as Mira hops down and licks his face.
Credits then roll over a picture of Mira, a goofy montage of clips, and a silly song sung in a series of barks and growls.
Silent Hill: Origins
In the game's "UFO" ending, as Travis Grady stands in front of Room 502 conversing to himself, an alien ship appears. Both Mira and an alien beam down, with Mira seeming to serve as a translator or interpreter to the alien. Mira, Travis, and the alien then fly in a UFO to retrieve Travis' missing truck, which is located on the alien's planet.
Travis' unlockable "Daredevil" accolade includes a costume that resembles Mira. It is unlocked by completing the entire game without saving once.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
In the game's "UFO" ending, Cheryl Heather Mason transforms into Mira, and then she states, "My mother was a bitch" (female dog).
Silent Hill: The Escape
Mira first appears after the player has completed a second playthrough as an alien, and similar to James Sunderland, the alien is surprised to discover Mira was behind the mysterious events it observed. After this, Mira becomes a playable character for the last extra of the game and attacks enemies via biting. Mira is quick, which can actually become a disadvantage in regards to the fact that quick turns can lead into unexpected meetings with monsters.
Silent Hill: Book of Memories
Mira appears in the Earth Dungeon as a hostage to be guided through the zone, and she later shows up in Valtiel missions. The dog tag artifact belongs to Mira, and the player can wear a Mira mask as an accessory.
- Masahiro Ito does not remember that the character was named by Team Silent. The model in-game data and an art piece from Art of Silent Hill are both called "inu". The name "Mira" first appeared on the inside page of the cover of the Japanese version of Silent Hill 2 Original Soundtracks, among other characters' names.
- As the credits roll during the Silent Hill 2 "Dog" ending, Mira begins to growl as Eddie Dombrowski is presented. Given that Eddie is known to have killed a bully's dog, it seems likely that this fact does not sit well with Mira. It can be speculated that Mira is the dog Eddie killed and may have been manifested or reincarnated as an all-powerful dog by the power of Silent Hill, or her growling could simply be a meaningless nod towards Eddie murdering an unrelated dog.
- In Shattered Memories, Mira is wearing a dog tag on which "犬" ("inu") is written, meaning "dog" in Japanese.
- Mira, along with Akira Yamaoka, is credited with playing the guitar of "Waiting For You".
- Mira is credited as making the screenplay of the first Silent Hill: Downpour trailer.
- In the "Dog" ending of Silent Hill 2, there is a map on a wall of Mira's control room with the pictures of James and Maria on them, though Maria is placed across the lake.
- Obtaining the "Dog" ending in the HD Collection awards the trophy/achievement "It All Makes Sense Now".
- Mira's role in the "Dog" ending was parodied in Duck Season where the character is seen manning a control room observing the house. Coincidentally, both Mira and the titular dog were implied to be supernatural in nature.
- A picture of Mira can be found in a desk in Dead by Daylight: Chapter XVI - Silent Hill.
