A QR Code is a code that can be scanned into Tomodachi Life, Miitomo, and Miitopia as an alternative to creating a Mii or transfering them from Mii Maker. This method allows for Miis to be imported from other islands while retaining the personality of said Mii. If a Tomodachi Life QR Code is scanned on Mii Maker, however, only the Mii's appearance and nickname will appear.
Although QR Codes of any language can be read by any version of Tomodachi Life, clothing will only be carried forward if the QR Code and Game are from the same country, presumably due to regional differences between games. In addition, only one piece of clothing and interior, as well as their catchphrase (if present) can be stored with a Mii on a QR Code.
QR Codes are first implemented in Tomodachi Life, which can either be scanned from other pre-made codes, or created by the player from the game's engine. When a Mii is scanned, The Mii comes with their default outfit and interior as was configured in the QR Code, but the Mii can still be edited to the player's liking.
QR Codes return in Miitomo, functioning the same way as in Tomodachi Life. Additionally, the game is backwards compatable with QR Codes from Tomodachi Life, albeit with only the voice, appearance, and personality.
QR Codes are also used in Miitopia, using the same function as in Tomodachi Life.
- If you scan a QR Code of a Mii wearing an outfit the player does not yet currently own, that outfit won't become available for purchase in the shops.
- MiiCharacters.com, a website where many QR Codes can be found.
