— Mii, Tomodachi Life
Dreaming Mii

Artwork of a dreaming Mii in Tomodachi Life.

Dreams can be seen and experienced when the Mii the player is viewing is dreaming while they are taking a nap or sleeping for the night. The dreams are random when viewed and sometimes different even if it is the same dream. When the Miis are dreaming, a "bubble" with a moon in it will appear above their head. By tapping on it, the player may enter the dream, which are often very surreal sequences, ranging from very short in time to being endless, in which case the dream may be exited at any time. After finishing or exiting the dream, the Mii will wake up, and the player will get an item that is relevant to the dream. The Mii's reaction to waking up will be different depending on "how" they are sleeping. If the Mii is sleeping for the night, they will go back to sleep. If they are napping, they will get up for the day again. Dreams also will not appear if the Miis just got to sleep, or are close to waking up. In addition, they may talk in their sleep.

Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life both feature their own unique dreams; there is no dream that appears in both titles.


Tomodachi Collection


A dreaming Mii in Tomodachi Collection.

Dreams make their first appearance in Tomodachi Collection, occurring sometime after a Mii has gone to sleep for the night, or when they are taking a nap. The player can tell if a Mii is dreaming if they have a thought bubble containing the kanji 夢 (yume). After a dream is viewed, the Mii will wake up as an item spawns next to them, which will automatically be given to the player after the Mii goes back to sleep. Items can be pulled from a dream only if the Mii is in bed for the night while having the dream; A Mii that is dreaming during a nap will not yield an item.

Additionally, Hypnotism (催眠術 saiminjutsu?) can be done with Miis that live in the apartments as a faster way to view the Mii's dreams again. The player would need to swing the hypnotizer until the Mii gets sleepy. Once the Mii is hypnotized, the Mii will fall asleep, and the player can view whatever dream he/she wants to see the Mii go through. Dreams caused by hypnotism will not yield any items, and not give a Mii any happiness.

Tomodachi Life

Life Dream Bubble

A Mii dreaming in Tomodachi Life.

Dreams and Hypnotism reappear in Tomodachi Life, having the same function as in Collection. In western versions, however, the dream symbol is instead a night sky with a crescent moon in the center. Additionally, a Mii that dreams during a nap will now spawn the item linked to the dream.

The Hypnotism process has also been slightly altered, such as the ability to swing the hypnotizer in circles to make the Mii dizzy. After waking up, the Mii will now gain a small amount of happiness.

List of Dreams

Tomodachi Collection Dreams

The names are unofficial, as the dreams are unnamed in-game.

Name Reward Description Image
Mountain Energy drink

The dreaming Mii will call out a phrase to a mountain in the far distance, and have it echo back. Sometimes the mountain will say something different than what the Mii initially said, surprising it.

  • The Mii yells out a word in the mountains.
  • The word echoes back to the mii.
  • A case of the Mountain shouting back, shocking the Mii.
Kaiju (The phrase "strange beast" in Japanese) Dinosaur suit The dreaming Mii, standing outside a building in the city, suddenly begins to grow several stories tall while it also gets into a blue-green baby suit (which is colored salmon if the dreamer is female). The view then cuts to the dreaming Mii standing beside two buildings the player must destroy by guiding the dreaming Mii to run into the buildings, punch, or fire a laser at them. A random Mii appears beside the second building watching the dreaming Mii, dressed in a dinosaur suit.
Rangers A superhero costume in the color the dreaming Mii was depicted in. The dreaming Mii dreams him/herself and four random Miis in superhero costumes, introducing themselves, followed by the leader (the one depicted in red) calling out the title of the team: the Mii Rangers. And explosion suddenly goes off, launching the five Mii Rangers into the background.
  • Mii Green!
  • Mii Yellow!
  • Mii Red!
  • Mii Blue!
  • Mii Pink!
  • We are,
  • The Mii Rangers!
Freefall Wine]] The dreaming Mii finds him/herself on top of a suspended platform overlooking a large city, being convinced to jump off by a random Mii standing behind him/her, who is cheering the dreaming Mii on, convincing him/her to jump, only for the dreaming Mii questioning the situation. The Mii will not jump unless he/she is poked by the stylus, knocking the Mii off the platform.
Concentration Whatever food item was depicted in the dream. Inside an ancient Japan-styled room, the dreaming Mii is found focusing, with another Mii behind him/her equipped with a wooden rod. After a few seconds, a random food will appear in a thought bubble beside the dreaming Mii. The background Mii notices the thought bubble, and whacks the dreaming Mii, calling out as he/she hits the dreaming Mii.
Come Back Whatever food item was depicted in the dream. The screen shows the Mii staring at a large piece of food placed right in front of him/her. Tapping the Mii with the stylus will cause it to shout the food's name, then run towards it. One of four things can happen:

  • As the Mii gets closer to the food, the food teleports itself ahead of the Mii, encouraging the Mii to run further, only to teleport again. This can be repeated until the food goes as far as it can.
  • As the Mii runs towards the food, the food begins to evaporate away, then reform as the Mii runs past it. The Mii continues running forwards into the distance.
  • Same as above, but once the food begins to evaporate away, it will not reform, and the Mii will look towards the player in disappointment.
  • Once the Mii gets close to the food, a cage will come roaring down from above, trapping both the Mii and the food inside. The Mii looks back towards the player in disappointment.
  • Warp Ending
  • Transparency Ending

The Birds Bird's Nest The head of the dreaming Mii along with two other Mii heads are seen poking their heads out of a large bird's nest, tweeting.

Once the index finger of the hand is right beside the T with the Mii, the Mii will then slowly inch themselves onto the finger, and from there the player must slowly navigate them to the other T on the right. Once the Mii is at the top of the right T, he/she will dismount and stand on the second T while smiling.

Afterwards the hero reminds children a valuable lesson that seems too far-fetched to even make sense (For example, they might say to feed the monsters under the child's bed three square meals a day, or they might say that the only thing to fear is fear itself and also spiders).
