  • The Advanced Miis aren't ranked in this game mode at all. Same goes for The Miis who debut in Wii Sports Resort.


  • If two players gets the best pair and re-enter, Party Phil will say the best pair in second-person with their friend connection score.
  • The starter Miis for the best pair are Matt and Lucía (scoring 70/good buddies) while the starter Miis for the worst pair are Tatsuaki and Abby (scoring 26/friendly).
    • If two players get the worst pair and re-enter, Party Phil will say the worst pair score in third-person. He quickly adds "I'm expecting a good score this time!"
    • If two other players gets the best pair and/or the worst pair, Party Phil will say the best and worst pair in third-person.
  • The following Pair Minigame are excluded in Friend Connection: Flashlight Frights/Torchlit Terror, Color Coordination, Pump Cart Panic, Teamwork Temple, Rodent Rundown and Clover Hunt since they can't have different rankings. Pair Minigames that appear can be ranked due to how many points they get or how fast they can be done with.
  • On the menu, as well as in the rules, the CPUs shown playing are Chris and Emily.
    • The CPUs shown playing in the preview picture are Steve and Abby.
  • Upon being given their score, depending on the results, the pair of Miis will react positively or negatively, and perform one of the following animations:
    • If their score is 0, the Miis will punch the ground.
    • If their score is less than 30, the Miis will sulk.
    • If their score is between 30 and 50, they will just stand there with a sad expression.
    • If their score is between 50 and 65, they will smile, jump, wave and clap.
    • If their score is between 65 and 100, they will do a short dance. There are three variants of the dance.
    • If their score is 100, they will perform a longer dance, that features the pair dancing in a circle and high-fiving each other.
  • If the pair does very poorly and gets a D in the minigame, when jumping out of the heart they will fall and act dizzy for a second, before getting up and running on to the platform.
  • Even with the maximum score, Party Phil will still say to the #1 pair that he expects a great score from them, as if you could do greater than 100, but you can't.
