    Unless there is a special tool, just peal them off carefully and slowly.

    I've bought this stuff from the dollar store by my house. It's called Goo-Gone. That works very well on getting the residue of the sticker off after you peel it off. I would be careful since the Wii is electronic and all though.

    u can also try transparent tape to take the goo out...... put it on top of the goo and peal it right off..... u can also try duck tape but first try it with the transparent tape.

    dont use duct tape on the wii, it will do more harm than good.

    I use maskin' tape to remove stickers residue, the same way X@vier described...
    It worked fine and it's very gentle.

    Stickers are also easier to remove when heated a little, perhaps after a good gaming session or via a hair dryer.

    Alternatively, for a small cost, goo-gone (as mentioned above) works miracles.

    Tar remover will work fine 100%
    Don't use tape - that's just not going to work!
    Also try furniture polish.

    Peanut oil works like magic. Peel the stickers off as well as you can, then clean off the residue with a cotton swab dipped in peanut oil. In fact, there's enough oil in peanut butter to do a very good job cleaning off the sticker goo. I'd suggest using smooth peanut butter if you go that route, since the peanut chunks in chunky peanut butter could potentially scratch the Wii. Residue from the oil (or the peanut butter) can be cleaned off with soap and water (be careful not to get water into the Wii, of course - just put hot water on a cloth, add a bit of soap, clean the oil, and wipe off the soap with a damp cloth).

    I'd avoid Goo Gone, since it can damage certain types of plastic.

    I'd also avoid Goo Gone. That stuff is hella-powerful. I've seen it eat through more than plastic.

    Use the shattered bones from his skull to scrape them off. :yesnod:

    Read my guide if you want help on how to do it:

    use a hair dryer. the hot air will dry the adhesive making it easier to peel.

    Goo Gone is good...what I also have always had lots of success with is nail polish remover...it's strong stuff! Eats right through the glue :yesnod:

    perhaps a q-tip and some rubbing alchohol just may work? if it doesnt well then... at least it didn't harm anything, it dries fast, and is a cleaning agent anyways. People use rubbing alchohol to clean electronics often.

    I think rubbing alcohol would be the best method. I used it on some stickers on my pair of skis and it worked great.

    I do agree with the GOO Gone. It really does work well.
