|Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend|
|First appearance||"Tragical History"|
|Voiced by||Judy Greer|
|Relationships||Dr. Krieger (boyfriend/fiancé)|
Sterling Archer tells Lana Kane that Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is so real that the State of New York was going to allow Dr. Algernop Krieger to marry her. However, the holographic device that stored her was destroyed in a fit of rage by Lana, effectively "killing" Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend.
Krieger succeeded in rebuilding his girlfriend, although he considers the first incarnation a mother and the second her daughter. Krieger had their entire wedding planned, but he apparently reconsidered because of how society would look upon them. Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend protested, but Krieger told her that they would discuss it in the van.
When Cyril Figgis accidentally hits her projector, Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend appears in Krieger's van. Given her immediate friendliness to him and Cyril's proven inability to keep it in his pants, it's possible something ensued.
Following the car chase between Sterling Archer and Burt Reynolds; Krieger, his girlfriend, Lana Kane, and Cyril; and a gang of Cuban hitmen, Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend tries to comfort Krieger (since his van was heavily damaged by gunfire during the car chase), but he rejects her help and tells her not to touch him.
Building Their RelationshipEdit
Krieger later shows off his new van to her, and later they are seen (presumably) having sex in the back of the van.
Krieger is later seen planning to eat sushi and watch tentacle porn with her.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is seen reading pornography in Krieger's lab as he is being arrested by the FBI.
During a confrontation with the Yakuza, Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is seen reading pornography again. She is offended when Krieger accidentally calls the gangsters Chinese. Krieger shouts that he doesn't get offended when she confuses the Welsh with the Dutch, either time that happened.
She is later seen trying to pack cocaine for Krieger, frustrated in her inability to physically interact with it.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is later seen with the ISIS employees in Krieger's van on a planned bowling trip.
She later accompanies the ISIS employees in Krieger's ice cream van during their attempt to sabotage Archer and Lana's relationship. However, when the group decides against it, they run into the apartment building, where Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend reveals that she can fly. Pam Poovey asks Krieger how he doesn't murder her every day. Krieger tells Pam that he does.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend considers herself Japanese despite being a digital simulation, as seen when she was offended when Krieger referred to the Yakuza (who are Japanese) as Chinese. She often behaves like a stereotypical anime/manga character, although she does occasionally demonstrate a broader range of character. She refers to people with the Japanese honorific -san, and her accent is based around the practice of transliterating words so they can be rendered in Japanese writing. Her most notable example of this is pronouncing Krieger's name Kuriiga.
After Krieger broke his promise of marrying her, the two have an incredibly strained relationship. She has a crush on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
- Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend may be a reference to Rei Toei from William Gibson's novel Idoru and Brenda from Perfect Hair Forever.
- She is made to look like a stereotypical Japanese anime/manga character, and has a strong resemblance to Galaxy Angel's Milfeulle Sakuraba or possibly Godannar's Anna.
- The second incarnation appears to be completely independent from any type of projector, as she has been seen outside twice.
- Her first name is possibly Mitsuko, according to theArcher Super Easter Egg Hunt.
