1. Don Lothario
For our first entry in this Sims 4 characters list, we have the highly iconic Don Lothario. He is a pre-made young adult Sim in the game who lives in Oasis Springs with the Caliente household. In The Sims 2, it could be remembered that he was also a playable character who lived in Pleasantview and Riverview.
He is characterized as being a flirty womanizer, having been romantically inclined with sisters Nina and Dina and their mother Katrina. Not only that, but he also had intimate linkages with Bella Goth, and has once been engaged to Cassandra Goth!
2. Vanessa Jeong
Next up on our list is the young adult Vanessa Jeong. This Sims 4 Sim is another pre-made character who has been introduced when The Sims 4: Get Famous was launched. She resides in Del Sol Valley and is known for being an up-and-coming 1-star celebrity who has starred in lesser-known commercials. Having the World-Famous Celebrity as her aspiration, she works hard to level up her actress career. Vanessa Jeong is also seen in The Sims Mobile as a townie that you can unlock in the game.
3. Vi Moradi
Vi Moradi is a pre-made female young adult Sim who has been introduced in The Sims 4 after the launch of the game pack The Sims 4: Journey to Batuu. Inspired by the events in the Star Wars universe, Vi is a self-assured spy and leader of the Resistance Group that has its base on the planet Batuu. You would have to regain her trust if you want her to welcome you in the Resistance Encampment. Vi is skilled in Charisma, Fitness, and Programming, and is known to be an asexual Sims 4 character.
4. Nalani Mahi’ai’
Nalani Mahi’ai’ is another notable Sims 4 character, who has graced the game with her presence after the launch of The Sims 4: Island Living. You can remember her as the primary Sim featured in the teasers and trailers of the said expansion pack (Fun Fact: In the videos, Nalani Mahi’ai’’ was voiced by Auli’i Cravalho, the same voice behind the character of Moana!). Nalani Mahi’ai’ is a female, young adult mermaid Sim who lives in Sulani and is skilled in Charisma and Fitness.
5. Captain Whitaker
Captain Whitaker is another awesome Sims 4 character, as he is an adoptable adult ghost dog in the game! He joined the Sims 4 when the expansion pack, Cats & Dogs, was released in November 2017. Captain Whitaker’s character was said to be inspired by the actor Forest Whitaker who starred in the 1999 movie Ghost Dog: The Way of The Samurai. He is the only pre-made deceased pet in The Sims 4 and often roams around Brindleton Bay. You can befriend him and actually make him “play dead”!
6. Mayor Whiskers
Mayor Whiskers is another pre-made adoptable pet in The Sims 4, but he is not yet dead like Captain Whitaker. He is a male stray cat that could be seen wandering around the streets of Brindleton Bay. Some Sims claim that Whiskers is the actual elected Mayor of their town, and this could be tied to the fact that he frequently dwells near the town hall. Sims who befriend Mayor Whiskers can interact with him and later on adopt him. However, albeit he’s friendly and talkative, he is also an aloof cat.
7. Agnes Crumplebottom
Ah, who can ever forget Agnes Crumplebottom? The OG NPC from The Sims: Hot Date, who strictly adheres to proper manners and slaps people who exhibit any signs of indecent behavior. Also known as Miss Crumplebottom, Agnes apparently lost her husbands Robert Crumplebottom and Erik Darling, which scarred her deeply and caused her to become bitter regarding all things romance.
Agnes appeared in all 4 Sims games, and in The Sims 4, she currently resides in Henford-on-Bagley, focusing on her plants/garden business with her cousin Agatha Crumplebottom.
8. Count Vladislaus Straud IV
Introduced in The Sims 4: Vampires, Count Vladislaus Straud IV is a playable Sims 4 character who lives in the Straud Mansion in Forgotten Hollow.

Known to be an immortal character who is quite skilled in playing the Pipe Organ, Vlad is a fearful icon in the game who is said to have lived for more than 200 years in Forgotten Hollow.

9. Greg The Werewolf
Greggorius Lunvik, also known as Greg, is a male adult werewolf Sim introduced in the game when The Sims 4: Werewolves was launched in 2022.

13. Mimsy and Bernard
Mimsy and Bernard are a married couple known for haunting the Von Haunt Estate as ghosts. The two NPCs, originally known as Lady Mimsy Alcorn Shallot and Lord Bernard Escargot Shallot IV, used to live in the splendid manor. According to the legend, Bernard was painting a portrait of Lady Mimsy one afternoon. Since was greatly disappointed by the painting, so he set fire to it—accidentally blazing the whole manor and killing him and Mimsy in the process. These Sims 4 characters can then be revived by Spellcaster Sims using the Dedeathify spell.
14. Grim Reaper
Of course, when we think about the most iconic character of all in the entire Sims universe, one Sim easily comes to mind—the Grim Reaper! This fearful and mysterious NPC has been around since the first Sims games, reaping the souls of the deceased and making bargains with the bereaved. As a Sims 4 character, we get to witness a quirkier side of the Grim Reaper. Sometimes, after he’s done harvesting the soul of the deceased, he goes around the house playing with the Cowplant or singing in the Karaoke machine.
Bonehilda is another NPC originally from the earlier Sims games. After her first appearance in The Sims: Makin’ Magic, she made a comeback in the game through the launch of The Sims 4: Paranormal.

She can also help school kids with their homework and WooHoo with Sims!
16. Sunny The Tragic Clown
Sunny the Tragic Clown, is a popular NPC who was first introduced in The Sims: Livin’ Large. He appears when a Sim puts up a Tragic Clown painting in their home and views it. He wears an old-fashioned clown costume and heavy clown makeup and is characterized as a desolate Sim who cries uncontrollably. In The Sims 4, if a Sim views the painting of Sunny, they will get a “Tragic Clown is Tragic” moodlet which will give them a sad mood.
Did you know you can summon the Tragic Clown? Here’s how!
17. Selvadorada Skeletons
The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure added a plethora of magical and mysterious stuff in the game, introducing us not only to bizarre curses and hidden treasures but also to a new (temporary) life state: Selvadorada Skeletons! These interesting bony buddies are sort of related to Bonehilda, not just in appearance, but in the way that they also get to perform free household chores and childcare for young Sims.

In this area, you’ll meet an NPC called the Hermit, who lives alone in a small, cozy house near a garden with lots of harvestable plants. If your Sim has an Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration, they must build a relationship with the Hermit—which can lead to the hermit moving to your Sim’s household.
21. Guidry The Ghost
Guidry, more formally known as Claude René Duplantier Guidry, graced us with his presence in the game as a ghost NPC when The Sims 4: Paranormal Stuff was launched. If your Sim lives in a haunted house residential, Guidry the Ghost offers his paranormal expertise to help your Sim with the hauntings. He is known to be romantically linked with Temperance and Bonehilda. However, he now has bad blood with the former. Guidry is often in a flirty mood and has the traits Romantic, Art Lover, and Foodie.
Like Guidry, Temperance is another ghost NPC who recently joined the roster of remarkable Sims 4 characters. As a female young adult ghost, Temperance is famous for her deeply enraged and terrifying presence whenever she visits a haunted residential house, wherein she curses objects and scares Sims out of their wits.

25. Patchy the Strawman
Another NPC reintroduced into The Sims 4 through the launch of The Sims 4: Seasons is the Scarecrow, known formally as Patchy the Strawman. Patchy can be purchased as a decoration in the garden. Later on, Sims can interact with Patchy and form a friendship with him. You’ll soon realize that he sometimes comes to life and will automatically tend to your Sim’s garden. He also gives gardening tips to increase the gardening skills of Sims as well as random seeds.
For number 26, we have our favorite! This also ultra-cute Sims 4 character is Yama-chan, the mascot of Mt. Komorebi!
