A QR Code is a code that can be scanned into Tomodachi Life, Miitomo, and Miitopia as an alternative to creating a Mii or transferring 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.
In Life the player can scan pre-made codes or those created by another 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.
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.
Miitomo is backwards compatible with QR codes from Tomodachi Life, albeit with only the voice, appearance, and personality.
Celebrity Miis are 5 Miis which represent famous people in real life and can be downloaded to Tomodachi Life and added to the island. Each of the Miis were released on the Tomodachi Life website when the game was first released on June 6, 2014. They included Christina Aguilera, Shaquille O'Neal (Shaq), Debby Ryan, Shaun White, and Zendaya. Players could scan QR codes through the town hall to unlock these Miis. Each one came with preset look, profile, voice, and personality that could not be edited, while Shaun White was the only one who had a full birthday set.
