Ben Koto is a Unique Sim in LifeSimmer's The Sims 3 Ambitions LP. He is an aspiring inventor and entrepreneur.


Ben is a "part-time Inventor", "part-time freelance dancer" and "a regulation hottie".


Ben is roommates with Porsha Doran, Isabella Vega and Alexander Goth. In Part 1: Welcome!, Ben began to work on his Inventing skill at the fire station and registered as a Self-Employed Inventor.

Ben got into online dating in Part 3: Alexander the Fairy, which he used to meet several female Sims throughout the course of the LP.

Ben caused the breakup between his roommates Porsha and Alexander, when he was caught flirting with Porsha; subsequently Porsha and Ben begin a relationship. Ben asks Porsha on a date for Love Day in Part 16: Stina Saturdays, however, she stands him up for another guy - only to be stood up herself. The relationship between Ben and Porsha becomes official that same night, after a romantic rendezvous in the garden. Alexander and Ben have a slightly negative relationship as a consequence of these events.

After causing an explosion at the laundromat in Part 22: FIRE + QUEEN MARY, Ben cheats on Porsha with an Elderly woman named Mary Baker. Lifesimmer has plans for Ben to marry Mary for her money - she asserts that Mary is his true love - and perhaps have a child with her, before she dies of old age, in order to continue Mary's legacy.

Ben was awarded by the Mayor of Twinbrook for inventing a time machine.


  • Ben Koto's name is a reference to Glen Coco from Mean Girls. Lifesimmer will often say: "You go, Ben Koto!" when he succeeds in something.
  • Ben may have Asian roots as the name "Koto" originates in Japan.
