- "[Mii] and I got in a fight. I'm so mad now."

Fights are a feature in Tomodachi Collection, and Tomodachi Life. Two Miis can be angry at each other and depending on how it goes, it may or may not break a friendship or a relationship.
A fight can be spotted when a pair of Miis have the orange friendship icon on their apartment windows. The system that determines fights is entirely random-based. Nothing the player does beforehand nor the Mii's Relationship levels will determine when the two Miis will fight, and if they do, whenever the fight is either a normal, standard fight or a huge, hostile fight. Two Miis that have married have a higher chance of fighting against each other than with other Miis (unless they're looking after a baby).
If the fight fails to be resolved, both Miis can be removed from their respective relationship charts, setting their relationships back to anonymous. If this occurs to two married Miis, this could lead to an immediate breakup request, unless either wants to make up.
Each time the player starts up the game after several hours of not playing, up to three fights will break out at random, depending on the island population. Fights cannot be prevented nor can the causes of the fight be tracked down under any circumstances. Outside of this, if the player sees two Miis arguing in Mii Apartments, they are more likely to start a fight if both Miis show angry reactions. It is at the point that either shifting to another apartment or entering the arguing Mii's apartment will instantly kick off the fight.
A regular fight can be spotted when a Mii has small puffs of smoke coming out of their head. Upon visiting them, the Mii will be angry and upset, and the player has to calm the Mii down first. The easiest way to do this is to use certain gifts/goods such as the bath set, the swing, or the music box, though giving them food, clothing or hats that generates at least a "(s)he really likes/liked it!" works just as well.
Once the Mii is calm, the Mii will go to the apartment of the friend they are fighting with to attempt to make up. The Mii will wave and say, "I'm sorry about what happened."; after a pause, if the friend establishes an apology by waving and saying "I'm sorry too." (in Tomodachi Collection, saying, "I'm also sorry."), the fight is resolved; the Mii will dance happily as the captions say "That went really well!", then it will say, "We made up! Thanks for your help.". If the friend rejects the apology by saying "I'm still not over it." (in the European/Australian version, saying "I can't forgive you." or in Tomodachi Collection, saying, "I won't forgive you."), the Mii will drop to its knees as a sad violin fanfare plays, followed by the caption "Things didn't go so well..."; it says, "It didn't work..." and will gain 50% sadness to show a broken heart. And if it was a sweetheart/spouse, he/she could say that he/she wants to break up/divorce, in which working out will always fail.
When the the Mii who was apologizing fails and is sad, a thought bubble containing the other Mii's face will appear over their head. Clicking on it for the first time makes them say "Life is unexpectedly tough right now." or "Life sure is hard..." in Tomodachi Collection.
When the thought bubble is clicked a second time, they say "We didn't patch things up. AT ALL." or "We couldn't reconcile" in Tomodachi Collection. The player then gets thrown into a cutscene showing the Mii's fight with the other Mii, which can range from throwing various treasures at each other while insulting each other, to tugging over a teddy bear (the most common) or a random treasure item or food. The tugging cutscenes are only seen in Tomodachi Life.
Only in Tomodachi Life, after a fight where things didn't end well, the Mii's friend will sometimes have a problem afterwards, depending on its relationship level. They will say that they are sick of fighting and want to make up with the Mii. If accepted, this will play a cutscene where the Mii visits their still sad friend. It says, "I'm sorry too... Can we make up?"; the other Mii's raincloud disappears, then it turns its head happily and says, "Sure.", followed by him/her jumping up and the two dancing together. Once they apologize back, the fight will become solved and the Miis will return to being friends, the Mii dancing and saying, "We made up! I'm so relieved." afterwards.
There is a way to determine if the Mii's friend will apologize after a fight that didn't end well. If the friend's name is still on the Mii's relationship chart under "Friend (Fight)" after the Mii fails to apologize, it foreshadows that the friend will return to apologize back. This might not happen however, and if the Mii does not wish to apologize back, they stop being friends immediately.
Regular Fight Quotes
When a Mii fights with another Mii and his/her apology is rejected, a bubble can be tapped (similarly to that of inquiring on their problems) to see what they were fighting over; these are some sequences they will say during the cutscene that plays:

- "I had a huge fight with [Mii] and now I'm really, really mad!"
- — Mii, Tomodachi Life (British version)
- "[Mii] and I had a huge fight that wasn't my fault at all! I'm so mad!"
- — Mii, Tomodachi Life (American version)
A Hostile Fight (or Huge Fight) is when a Mii is enraged with another, they will appear to have a fiery aura and heavy metal music will play in their apartment. Unlike a regular fight, the Mii is so mad that they refuse to apologize and any attempt to calm them down will always fail. The text box that even proceeds display a message stating that "Nothing can be done right now" and to just "leave them alone for a while" after they exclaim they refuse to apologize. This type of fight only occurs in Tomodachi Life.
The only way to stop a hostile fight is if a random friend of both of the Miis is willing to help them make up. If one does, the request usually generates instantaneously with the actual problem. If they do want to help and the player accepts, a cutscene will begin. In this cutscene, the Mii tries to intervene with the fight between his/her two friends. If they succeed, the two Miis will make up by smiling and waving at each other, then dance while the friend Mii applauds happily as a happy tune plays. If they fail, the two Miis will continue to fight and instantly end their friendship and the friend Mii frowns and ducks for cover, while shaking his/her head in sadness.
To end their relationship, the Mii will say "Things aren't going so great with me and [Mii]." (In the European version, the Mii will say "I want to break up with [Mii].") The player can tell the Mii to move on or work things out. Note: Working things out will usually fail. The Miis who are in a relationship/married who had a Hostile Fight will breakup/divorce.
If the apology goes well, the Mii then dances and the captions will then say, "It worked! They made up!". The Mii will then feel proud of themselves and say "I did something good today! I should be proud... and I am!". When failing, however, the friend who attempted to help will sink to the ground sadly, the captions say, "They didn't make up..." and the Mii says, "It didn't work...like, at all." The friend who tried to make them up will have a 2% chance of gaining sadness after failing to patch things up.
Oddly, Miis that have been in a standard fight long enough cannot enter a hostile fight if the fight goes on long enough, and vice versa.
- Oddly, when a third Mii attempts to resolve a hostile fight, the two Miis that would normally be represented with the flaming aura are instead shown with puffs of smoke, as if the Miis had a normal fight. This is possibly to make the Miis more noticeable, as the fiery auras obstruct their sides and back.
- You can tell if the apology is going to be accepted or rejected by the two Miis' relationship; if one of them has a low enough status ("Getting Along OK" or lower), there's a chance they'll be rejected, even if the other Mii has a high level. In the case of a huge fight, if either Mii has said low status, there's a chance the fight will fail to be resolved.
- If the Mii is the child of a couple, or has a sibling, they will not fight. Mii couples will also not fight if they were originally best friends before they started dating.
- Usually there's a pause after the Mii apologizes to its friend; at other times, the other Mii will immediately answer.
- It's possible for a fight to occur when a Mii is asleep.
- A married couple will not get in fights against each other if they have a baby, making babies the only method of preventing spouses from fighting.
- If you witness a fight from outside an apartment and you choose to enter, the Miis won't stop what they're doing, turn at, and walk to the player when the doorbell rings, and it will take a longer time before you enter the apartment.
- A fight can resolve itself, but the two Miis will stop being friends.
