|Tiki is still my waifu. My love transcends gender and dimensions.
TikiIsMyWaifu (Japanese: チキは俺の嫁Ｐ TIKihaorenoyomeP), also known by the shortened handle Tiki=Waifu, is a side story character appearing in Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE. Her real name is unknown, "TikiIsMyWaifu" is her online username. She is an internet-famous composer using the Uta-loid program known as Tiki, and is so well liked online that Tiki even states she is "referred to online as a god".
Unknown to Tiki=Waifu, Tiki herself is a fan of her Uta-loid compositions.
During the side story I'll Tiki-Tiki You (For Reals), Tiki becomes worried about Tiki=Waifu's lack of activity online and asks Itsuki to look for her. Itsuki starts by searching the cafe that Tiki=Waifu is rumored to compose at. However, she is not there. Itsuki then overhears a conversation between two Uta-loid fans that Tiki=Waifu disappeared near Shibuya 106. Chrom and Itsuki agree that they should check the Illusory 106 for her. She is found, alone, on the fourth floor, Itsuki tells her how to leave and she escapes safely.
Until Itsuki finds her, most characters refer to as her as "they", causing Itsuki to mistakenly assume that she was a man.
During the side story Coffee and Donuts, Tiki requests that Itsuki buy special donuts to taste, but he finds they are sold out, and eventually meets Tiki=Waifu again, who has purchased an entire bag. Tiki=Waifu states that sugar helps her to compose, but she decides to give Itsuki the entire bag as thanks for rescuing her before.
During the side story Sleepless in Shibuya, Itsuki offers to compose a song for Tiki, and seeks Tiki=Waifu for help to teach him how. However, Tiki=Waifu wanders into the 106 Idolasphere again, alongside several other Uta-loid composers. Itsuki investigates and finds them drained by a mirage named Cervantes, whom he defeats and recovers a Dragonstone Chip from. Tiki=Waifu asks how she should repay him, and upon Itsuki's reply that he'd like to learn how to make a song, Tiki=Waifu is visibly shocked at the ease of the request.
Itsuki and Tiki=Waifu make the song at the café, however Tiki=Waifu has trouble describing her technique, and more-or-less tells Itsuki to wing it. Despite this, Itsuki does manage to compose a song for Tiki: Not An Illusory World. Tiki=Waifu jokes about uploading the "embarrasing" song to the internet, but Itsuki stops her so he can have Tiki herself listen to it first. Tiki appreciates the work that Itsuki put into the song.
Itsuki gives Tiki the Dragonstone Chip, which causes Tiki to temporarily become tangible and able to interact with the world outside the Bloom Palace. In an animated scene of Tiki giving a live concert of Itsuki's song, Tiki is shown to meet Tiki=Waifu in-person, much to Tiki=Waifu's delight, and they have a conversation alongside coffee and donuts.
In a post-credits description, it is stated that Not An Illusory World was anonymously uploaded to the internet, implying that Tiki=Waifu went through with the upload after all.

Her general demeanor is calm, almost bored, and she speaks quietly and softly. Despite this, she becomes quite animated when expressing surprise or shock.
Tiki=Waifu, as her name would suggest, is completely obsessed with the Tiki Uta-loid program. While she openly expresses her love of Tiki the program, she still realizes that it's just a program, and scoffs at Itsuki's song directed at the real Tiki. She is shown to be very confident in her abilities, and even in the ability to teach them to others, however she has trouble expressing her technique to someone unfamiliar with it.
- The Tiki sticker on her laptop is flipped between the in-game model and her official render; in-game, Tiki is on the right side of the laptop, while her official render has Tiki on the left side of the laptop.
