If you delete a Mii, the game says they "moved away somewhere" while the Mii goes poof right then and there.

There will sometimes be an event where aMii will try to have two other Miis fall in love. The two Miis set up will then go on a date, and the Mii who set them up will follow them around on their date to see how it goes. Other than that quick cutscene, there is no stalking.

If miis are in an argument with one another, they may throw objects at each other. It's mostly played for laughs, though.

Not by the game's involvement--it's possible for an adult and a child to get into a fight, but everyone's on even terms here. Now, if the *player* wants to mistreat child Miis, that's on them...

Medicine for stomach bugs and colds, but it’s prescription medicine and only used when a Mii is sick.

Food items show dead animals such as shrimp, fish, and other animals that are eaten. I’m marking this as yes due to some of the food items being a bit disturbing as the images are photorealistic. But no animals are seen dying. Just food.

No pets in the game aside from a “rent a dog” or “rent a cat” coupon which can make a Mii sometimes have a cat or dog in their apartment, but they’re only “renting” it.

In the Japanese version of the game, there are multiple dreams in which a Mii may be shown with a string around their neck. The Mii is always shown as some type of inanimate object in these cases, however.

There’s a news broadcast in which a Mii has a tantrum in public. In the Japanese version of the game the Mii is on the ground shaking their body because they’re upset, however as this resembled a seizure it was changed to them just stomping in localizations. The Mii isn’t having a seizure, it just looks like one.

You can “erase” a Mii’s face and then draw on it while they’re sleeping, making a Mii’s eyes and mouth disappear. No eye injuries are seen, the eyes and mouth just go “poof”

No queer things, but a Mii can catch feelings for someone already in a relationship. (If they come to you for relationship advice, you can disuade them from pursuing those feelings for this reason).

Techincally? Two Miis can get into a really big argument, and the resulting anger is reminiscent of a meltdown (depending on how you define it), but the text to speech voices means that they won't be screaming in your ear or anything.

Miis speak directly to the player, who is referred to as the look-alike of the Mii they use to represent themself. There is also a random scene in which a Mii will show awareness that they are in a video game, saying that they hope the player is enjoying Tomodachi Life.

Other Miis will not give any changed reactions to a male Mii wearing female-intended clothes (or vice versa, for that matter). However, it seems the Miis themselves tend to not like getting clothes intended for the opposite gender. This doesn't apply to costumes, it seems...

It depends on whether you make Miis of non-straight and/or non-binary people/characters because everyone is straight-washed and forced into a binary gender in this game.

Children and adults can get together in the Japanese and Korean versions, but in the Western versions only relationships between two child Miis or two adult Miis are possible. However, age gap relationships can still occur, and child Miis can become adults using Age-o-Matic, which allows them to date adults; the opposite is also possible using Kid-o-Matic.

If the player fails to set the "Relationship to the real you" parameter, it's unlikely but possible two Miis of the opposite sex can get together when their real life counterparts are related.

Sexism

CassetteMeower
Male and female Miis may cry after having a fight with a friend and the friend telling them they’re “still not over it”, and friends of that Mii will try to cheer them up at the cafe regardless of gender. But they usually don’t cheer up until the player interacts with them enough.

All Miis live in apartments, but traveling Miis exist. They have homes with their family on their original island, but are traveling around the world.

Miis can wear Santa costumes, so you can make a Santa Claus Mii if you want.

You get the credits the first time after a baby grows up. At the end of the credits, there's a cute little scene of one of the parents recording a video of their kid (a toddler in this video) running around the park.
