|Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend|
|First appearance||"Tragical History"|
|Voiced by||Judy Greer|
|Relationships||Algernop Krieger (boyfriend/fiancé)|
Sterling Archer tells Cyril Figgis 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 Kane, effectively "killing" Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend.
Krieger eventually 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, saving the plans for a dream wedding between Archer and Katya Kazanova. Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend protested, but Krieger told her that they would discuss it in the van.
During a gunfight with a gang of Cuban hitmen, Cyril Figgis accidentally hits her projector; Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend then 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. When the gunfight ended, Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend tries to comfort Krieger (since his van was heavily damaged), but he rejects her help and tells her not to touch him.
Krieger shows off his new van to Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend, and later the back of the van can be seen rocking.
Krieger is seen planning to eat sushi and watch tentacle porn with her.
When Archer tells Krieger to pretend to help Barry Dylan get off the ISS Horizon, he gets an erection over the possibility of a cyborg fight between Barry and Ray Gillette. Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend complains, but Krieger attests that he was tired.
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 Dutch with the Swedes, either time that happened.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is seen trying to pack cocaine for Krieger, frustrated in her inability to physically interact with it.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend is seen with the ISIS employees in Krieger's van on a planned bowling trip. She appeared to have her own holographic bowling ball.
Krieger's Virtual Girlfriend 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 the Archer Super Easter Egg Hunt. Her last name is Miyazum, as it was seen on her bowling uniform in the episode, The Kanes. Her first name was confirmed to be Mitsuko in a document on the FIGGIS Agency website.
