This article is about relationship statuses between Miis. For information on a romantic relationship between two Miis, see Sweetheart.

An example of relationship statuses in Tomodachi Life that belongs to a grown-up child born from two other mii characters.

When Miis become friends, sweethearts, spouses, etc., their relationship statuses can be displayed by pressing L or R while inside their apartment. Different statuses have different colors, which range from dark green (highest), green, yellow green, yellow, red, purple, and blue (lowest). The higher a Mii's status is with another Mii, the more likely they will become best friends, confess their feelings, propose, or want to have a baby. On the other hand, the lower a Mii's status is with another Mii, the more likely they will get in fights and/or break up.

Occasionally, a Mii will ask the player what he or she thinks about the Mii's relationship with another Mii. If the player chooses the first option, the status will go up, if the second option is chosen, the status will remain steady, and if the third option is chosen, the status will go down.

Sometimes, Mii's state that they're worried about their relationship with their current date and ask if they still like them. This is similar to the problem about what you think about two mii's relationship but different because the choices say different things. Like the other problem if you choose the first statement the relationship level will go up if you choose the second it will stay the same if the third the relationship level will go down all the way to not getting along. This normally happens at getting along OK or lower.

If two Miis are hanging out in an apartment, very occasionally will they engage in an argument, which will lower the relationship level. When two Miis have yet to apologize, their relationship status will appear with a question mark. Two Miis not seeing each other often also leads to possible drops in relationships. If the conversation goes well, the prompt "[Mii 1] and [Mii 2] just became best friends!" may appear, but if the two are already best friends, it can say "[Mii 1] and [Mii 2] just became friends." If they're just friends, they could drop down to acquaintances, where they don't show up on the relationships list. If the Miis fight and it fails to be resolved, they are removed from each other's respective relationship lists, and they revert back to acquaintances.

When Miis go on vacations together via the travel ticket, their status will go up by one or two levels automatically.

There are 5 categories of statuses, each color saying something different about the relationship; they are Friends/Family/Siblings, Best Friend, Sweetheart, Spouse, and Ex-Sweethearts/Ex-Spouses. The yellow status is the default status in most cases; the only exception is when a husband and wife divorce, in which case the current statuses of both Miis will change to match the Ex-Spouses category (ex. a Mii at "Soul mate" status will change to "Still friends", "Not getting along" would change to "Want to forget", etc.)


  • It's possible relationship levels will increase or decrease offscreen while the game isn't turned on.
  • It could be possible that when a breakup happens, the Mii that made the request to breakup is relationship level is more likely to go down, and the other Miis relationship level is more likely to rise, however this may not be true, and it's just random.
