Our BitLife Ribbons List Guide will walk you through the process of obtaining all of the Ribbons in the game! There are now 40 Ribbons you can get with a more recent update, and we'll explain how you get each one of these!
Ribbons are handed out when you complete a full life in BitLife. The Ribbon is visible over your gravestone once you've completed one life. You can also check if you completed a Ribbon by finding the Ribbons tab under the Main Menu.
To get the Academic Ribbon in BitLife, you will want to focus as much on school as possible. Study hard when you enter college.
After getting enrolled in college:
- Keep studying each year.
- Graduate from college and go to graduate school.
- Go for a job at a school, whether it's a teacher or an assistant principal.
Stay at that job and go to the library every once in a while to keep up with your bookishness. You actually don't have to go for an education-based job, but it is the safer way to do it. Just make sure not to go into a position that will make you earn too much money. Nursing is a solid option, just keep under one million cash in the bank!
To get the Addict Ribbon in BitLife, you will need to hit the blackjack tables and bet on the ponies. Do that until you get an addiction for each and don't go to rehab. If you are offered any drugs, be sure to take them up on that offer! Make sure not to gain too much money gambling or you might get a Ribbon you didn't want!
Avoid going to the club too much or you might end up getting the Rowdy Ribbon instead. You will also want to keep your health relatively low, so you can die pretty quickly after you've got your addictions.
To earn the Bandit Ribbon, you will need to rob a train. Robbing a train requires that you do it at the exact time listed in real life as the time you pick in the game. We recommend picking the following times as they are the easiest.
That said, pick one of the times listed above and rob the train once your phone clock clicks over to it. After robbing the train, you will unlock the Bandit Ribbon in BitLife.

To get the Barbie Girl Ribbon in BitLife, start your life as a female, and get through High School as normal. You will need to get plastic surgery many times throughout your life. Do so every couple of years while maintaining a job that won't pay you too much.
You can also do all types of plastic surgery except Gender Reassignment because you need to be a female to obtain the Ribbon. Continue with this process until your later years and die normally to obtain the Ribbon.
To get the Big Boss Ribbon in BitLife. Start by graduating high school and majoring in something that is business-related at University (Mathematics, Finance, Information Systems, etc). Go to business school after you graduate from University, and once you graduate from there, get a job in a corporate-related field.
Work hard every year to get promotions, and you should eventually become CEO. You will need to have a net worth of over 20 million to obtain the Ribbon.
To get the Cat Lady Ribbon in BitLife, start off as a Female Bitizen and focus on adopting as many cats as you can.
When adopting cats, take care of them by spending time with them and all the other options. You will also want to largely ignore all of your other responsibilities and only spend time with your feline friends.
This one is a lot easier if you're a Bitizen (costs $4.99 USD), because you can adopt from the Cat Breeder instead of the Animal Shelter. You'll want to purchase a house that has at least four or six rooms because this will allow you to keep more cats.
You'll need to own at least 30 cats over your life while making sure not to have owned over five pets of another species.
To obtain the Cunning Ribbon in BitLife, you will want to commit a crime and get sent to prison. First, you'll need to determine how much a sex change operation is in your country. Make enough money to cover that, and then commit the crime. You then need to successfully escape from jail! After that, you will need to have sex-change surgery.
Once you've done that, you can (optionally) emigrate to a new country to make it harder for you to be caught again. That doesn't always work, but you can still get the Ribbon, you just need to not get caught again.
If you're on an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) and you get caught, you can close the app and relaunch it to make it, so you weren't caught.
To get the Deadly Ribbon in BitLife, you will have to commit multiple murders (at least five) in your lifetime.
Clubbing Them and doing a Drive-By are typically the most likely to work without getting you caught, so be sure to get your Driving license! If you get sent to jail, you can escape to go back on your murder spree. Check out this guide on how to escape from prison.
To get the Family Guy Ribbon in BitLife, start off as a male and hopefully be born into a relatively small family.
Get yourself hitched and have at least a couple of kids, but three might be better. Make sure to keep their happiness bars as high as possible throughout your life. Make sure not to earn too much money, otherwise, you can easily get another Ribbon. Avoid having too many kids or you can end up with the Fertile Ribbon.
To get the Famous Ribbon in BitLife, create a character with the goal of becoming one of the following jobs.
- Movie Star
- Social Media Star
Getting one of the jobs above will eventually get you famous as you age. However, a faster way to become famous is to post a lot on social media and gain a huge following.
Once you gain a huge following, the next step is to become one of the jobs we listed above. Combine the large social media following and one of those jobs like an actor, and you will become famous and get the Famous Ribbon in BitLife.
To get the Fertile Ribbon in BitLife, you need to have at least four children and make sure you don't do too much else with your life other than being a halfway decent mother! You can also donate sperm to get even more kids, which should put you over the top.
To get the Generous Ribbon in BitLife, you need to start early by getting a part-time job and gifting people small stuff, to begin with. We recommend going with one gift per family member in the early stage of your life. Get a pretty good job, so you can buy bigger gifts.
Once you graduate from high school, you should probably head to University to get a better-paying gig. Now, get your job and gain up some money. After gaining money, we recommend purchasing a good car every five years or so and gifting it to someone. You can also buy a few houses over the years that are in good shape and gift those as well.
After you've gotten at least a few cars and a couple of houses under your belt, you should be able to cruise to completing this Ribbon.
To get the Geriatric Ribbon in BitLife, you'll need to live into your 100s. Start by going to the doctor if you have any illnesses. If your health is low and you don't have an ailment, then head to the alternative doctor. Also, consider hitting the gym, getting acupuncture, and keeping your happiness up.
Make sure to go on vacations, you'll need to keep yourself happy! Do all of this and you will get the Geriatric Ribbon in BitLife.
To get the Globetrotter Ribbon in BitLife, you need to emigrate a bunch and take a bunch of vacations. You'll also need to make money to accomplish this, just make sure you don't make too much or you will get the wrong Ribbon.
To get the Gold Digger Ribbon in BitLife, you will need to marry people with a lot of money. Alongside marrying rich folks, you will need to wait for them to die and for you to inherit the spoils!
You also can't ever have a job, so to make a bit of side money, do some Freelance Gigs, which will get you enough cash to use the Dating App.
Make sure your character has high looks, so you can attract people easily. Now, go to the dating app, put the desired age at 80+ and the desired income as $136,000+! Look for someone with a maxed-out Money stat. Once you've got someone on the hook that is rich enough, you will want to get married without a prenuptial agreement. Getting eloped is one way to accomplish this, but it isn't always an option. If they won't get eloped or married without a prenup, then you'll just need to move on to the next one.
You will need to make at least 1.5 million dollars doing this, so you might need to do it twice. The second time will be easier because you should have enough money to make it so they won't want a prenup!
To become a hero and earn the Hero Ribbon, you'll need to either become a doctor, nurse, or join the army. You'll need to make sure not to engage in any conflicts, but don't make too much cash and get the wrong Ribbon!
If you want the High Roller Ribbon in Bitlife, you need to make a bunch of cash early on to get this Ribbon. You'll need all that cash to make some big bets. Head to either the casino or the racetrack. I would recommend the casino because Blackjack is relatively simple to play and win. The racetrack is pure luck, but at cards, you can at least somewhat influence the outcome.
Bet big stacks at the tables, and attempt to rack up over one million dollars in winnings. Once you do, cease making money so you don't accidentally get the Rich Ribbon (five million).
To get the Houdini Ribbon, you need to head to prison and then escape multiple times. We recommend continuing to repeat this process as many times as you can. You will also want to escape at least 10 or more times to make sure you've gotten it. Try to avoid sitting in jail for too long or you could end up with the Jailbird Ribbon.
To get the Influencer Ribbon, you will need to spend a ton of time on social media. Start by signing up for all of the social media accounts you can. After signing up, post multiple times each year, and you will likely go viral a few times.
You can also buy followers in the early stages, but don't do it a lot or you risk getting suspended briefly. That said, once you have over 100,000 followers on any account, make sure to get verified. Keep posting and you should eventually be able to make a career out of it. You will get the fame bar eventually if you get enough followers. If you need help getting followers, we recommend having your character have high looks.
To get the Jailbird Ribbon in BitLife, you will need to stay the majority of a character's life in prison and die while in prison. Start by first getting to prison and then trying to escape. Escape about four to five times.
Once you have done this, head back to prison for the final time and just keep aging up until your character dies. Be careful not to escape too many times or you could get the Houdini Ribbon instead!
There's not much required to get the Lazy Ribbon in BitLife. Just keep hitting the age button over and over until you die. However, make sure that your smarts are above 10%, or you could end up with the Stupid Ribbon.
To get the Loaded Ribbon in BitLife, you need to earn over 20 million dollars. Getting 20 Million dollars requires you to be very successful, so studying and working hard is your best bet. Start by getting a scholarship and try to become a doctor. This is likely the easiest path to big money. You can also marry a rich person, gamble to gain money, get an inheritance from your parents, or attempt to win the lottery (you might as well try for this even if it's unlikely to win).
Another job that earns a lot of money is being an actor, so do that and work on your social media presence to gain a higher salary. You can also now pass down your money to the next generation after your initial character dies, so you'll have more time to earn the money.
To get the Lustful Ribbon in BitLife, you will want to sleep with as many people as possible. Start by heading to nightclubs and engage in as many one-night stands as possible.
You will also want to engage with at least 20+ partners to achieve this Ribbon. If you get an STD, make sure to have it cured. You'll also want to make sure not to go to the club over 10 or so times because you could end up with the Rowdy Ribbon.
To get the Mediocre Ribbon in BitLife, do a whole lot of nothing and live a boring life where. You might just end up running into this one while playing normally.
it's also not too hard to live a mediocre life in this game. In short, you'll want to at least get a job, because if not you'll get the Lazy Ribbon.
To get the Model Bitizen Ribbon, you will want to never drink or do any drugs. You will also want to have a good relationship with all of your family members. Don't do too much else, and make sure to do the right thing if any random events come up. You'll want to do the following things at least 10 times each:
- Compliment People
- Spend time with your children

To get the Monopoly Ribbon in Bitlife, you have a couple of different options. You can become something like a Lawyer or a Doctor. Another option is to make money and buy houses. After buying the houses, you'll want to hold on to them for five or so years and then sell them for a profit. You can also become an Exorcist, then buy haunted houses, get rid of the ghosts, and sell them for a pretty good profit.
Either way, you want to just buy and sell houses a lot until your character dies. You can either buy houses that are in good shape, or you can buy dumpy houses and renovate them. It doesn't really seem to matter, as long as you just sell houses for a profit. We found at about five years of owning a house will get you a pretty good amount of additional money, so that's when you can sell.
Be careful because owning too many houses at a time will cost you money due to maintenance, and if you own too many, you might accidentally lose all your bank account money paying for them!
To get the Mooch Ribbon, you will want to hit up all of your family members for as much cash as possible. This also includes your significant other as well, so just make sure to continually try to live off of your loved ones, and you won't have any problems getting this Ribbon in BitLife.
In short, to get the Movie Buff Ribbon in BitLife, just watch a whole lot of movies each year. Don't do anything else notable and live long enough to watch at least 20 movies in total. Once you've watched above 20, you can go to the Witch Doctor a bunch to kill your character!

Tips for getting Ribbons in BitLife
The key to getting some of these Ribbons in BitLife is that you need to make sure not to excel or do too much in other parts of your life. The big one is making too much money, this can cause you to get some of the cash-based Ribbons.
Another tip for these is to keep your health relatively poor. You'll want your Bitizen to croak as quickly as possible, so you don't accidentally gain another Ribbon. This isn't always advised, some of the Ribbons require you to be further along in your life.
