This article is about relationship statuses between Miis. For more information on a romantic relationship between two Miis, see sweetheart or spouse.

An example of relationship statuses in Tomodachi Life.

When Miis become friends, sweethearts, spouses, etc., their relationship statuses can be checked by pressing L or R while inside their apartment. Different statuses have different colors, which range from:

  • Dark green (Highest)
  • Green
  • Lime green
  • Orange (Default)
  • Red
  • Lavender
  • Dark purple (Lowest)

The higher a Mii's status is with another Mii, the more likely they will become best friends, confess their feelings, and propose. On the other hand, the lower a Mii's status is with another Mii, the more likely they will fight or breakup (if their relationship is romantic).

Raising or Lowering Relationships

Main article: Problems/Relationships

Occasionally, a Mii will ask the player to judge the Mii's relationship with another islander. If they are at Getting along OK or lower, the Mii is a little worried about their current relationship with their friend/sweetheart/spouse.

The player can tell them that they are either great together, okay together, or not compatible. The relationship status respectively will either go up, stay the same, or go down.

When Miis are hanging out in an apartment together, they may engage in conversations. If their conversation does not go well, it may become an argument which will lower their relationship level faster. If the Miis end up fighting, their relationship status will have a question mark next to it (indicating dodgy feelings) and the player may have to resolve a fight between both of them. If a fight fails to be resolved, they can potentially be removed from respective relationship list and may revert back to acquaintances, but there's a chance they may become friends and/or fight again.

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

If a Mii takes their sweetheart/spouse on a date, then the relationships of both will increase.

When a Mii confesses to their crush and gets rejected, the statuses of both the Mii and the crush will decrease by up to 3 levels. If they try to confess again and still fail, the status will not go further down.

List of Statuses

There are multiple status categories when it comes to relationships:

  • Spouse
  • Family
  • Siblings
  • Sweetheart
  • Best Friend
  • Friends
  • Ex-sweethearts/spouses

Strangely, grandparents, uncle/aunt, cousins, in-law relatives are not listed as Family. Instead, it is up to child Miis and grandparents to make friends with each other.

Different categories will have different descriptions for relationship levels.
