Because Tomodachi Life uses Nintendo's Mii creation system as basic avatar making tool, it's possible to import a wide range of different characters into the game. With that in mind, we present to you some famous faces to get your party started, including well-known individuals from the movie world, long-forgotten cartoon characters and — of course — some of the most popular video game icons of all time.

To get these guys and gals into your copy of Tomodachi Life, you'll need to scan the QR code provided — if you're unsure of how to go about this then consult our handy guide.

We've been updating and adding to this list over the next few weeks, so be sure to revisit it in the future. Also, if you've got a Tomodachi Life character you'd like to submit to this list, contact us and email the QR code.
