* DoubleEntendre: Usually a fight is just a regular argument. But here, the Miis take fights too literally as they throw things at each other, making the fight seem like an actual war with someone else (taken UpToEleven with vicious fights). The poses they have during such, especially in the cutscene where a third Mii tries to help out in the case of a huge fight, are even actual battle stances.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: It's possible to make Miis that look like females, but are actually males. The game doesn't stop you from putting opposite-gender clothes on a particular Mii.

** On Christmas Eve, you will unlock a roast turkey, which like the birthday cake is a food item that can't be acquired during normal play, and the shopkeepers will either say "Seasons Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" instead of "Welcome" through the end of the year. Furthermore, starting on the week before Christmas, the hub and shop music will change into more festive tunes and the shopkeepers will wear Santa suits.

** There is a way to make a copy of a Traveler Mii that can be added to the island; If you receive the traveling Mii after sending them out, they are added to the [=StreetPass=] Mii Plaza, who can then be copied into Mii Maker and from there, into ''Tomodachi Life'' as well. However, they will not have any starting friendships with their parents and any siblings the parents may have had before, and you'll have to recreate their profile, voice, and personality from scratch.
