Miranda (Japanese: ボイジャー Voyager) is a character who appeared in Mewtwo Strikes Back and its remake. She works as a harbor manager at Old Shore Wharf.
In the anime
Miranda and Officer Jenny informed the Trainers planning on heading to New Island that the ferry service was postponed due to a raging storm. She claimed to have spoken to the seagulls to predict the current weather conditions, and noted that she had never seen such a hurricane. In the dub, she instead told them about the ancient legend of a storm called the "Winds of Water" that wiped out all life in the world except for a few Pokémon, though their sorrow and tears somehow revived everything.
Her warnings went unheeded by several Trainers, including Ash and his friends, as well as Team Rocket. While Jenny threatened them with arrest, Miranda stood by and allowed the Trainers to go. She informed Jenny that the Trainers had something special in their hearts, and that by overcoming such tests, they would succeed in becoming Pokémon Masters. She then wished the Trainers the best of luck.
After the movie's resolution, all of the Trainers and their Pokémon had their memories wiped by Mewtwo and were returned to Old Shore Wharf. The aforementioned events seemed to be replayed, with Miranda again warning of the weather conditions, though the Trainers instead followed her advice as Nurse Joy opened up the Pokémon Center for treatment. She joined Jenny, Neesha, Corey, and Fergus on the pier to watch the storm miraculously clear up.
Miranda reappeared in Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, a remake of Mewtwo Strikes Back, where she played the same role.
Miranda is a woman who is well-versed in ancient legends. In the original Japanese version, she is spiritual and a believer in destiny.
In the manga
In the movie adaptations
Miranda appears in the manga adaptation of the movie, fulfilling the same role as she does in the movie.
- Her Japanese voice actress, and the voice actor of another character in the first movie, also work together in a Pokémon based band.
- She speaks in a French accent in the Italian and Swedish dub.
- Miranda's re-design in Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution has her wearing fish hook earrings (rather than her previously worn gold hoops). These are based on the "hei matau" design, the fish hook of the Maori people of New Zealand. The hei matau is a sacred cultural symbol and has many connections to the ocean- from the hero Maui fishing up the North Island of New Zealand to the representation of the Maori people and their relationship to the God of the sea, Tangaroa.
