* {{Yandere}}: Played straight to a tee with [[spoiler: Miyako Okura]]. There's even some ominous foreshadowing with elements from ''SilentHill'', Konami's popular horror series. Maybe just as disturbing, [[http://blog.livedoor.jp/insidears/archives/52092712.html the unexpected psycho love made her an instant favorite with 2chan followers]].

* AffectionateParody / TakeThat: being a defining and popular game series in Japan, the Tokimemo games got their fair share of those in pop culture. To cite a few works containing such parodies: ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'', ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}'', ''VideoGame/LaMulana''...

* UsefulNotes/GeneralGamingGamepads: Most of the PS1 Tokimemo games are compatible with the Dual Shock and the PS1 Mouse (the Limited Edition Box of ''Tokimeki Memorial: Forever with you'' even contained a Tokimemo-themed PS1 Mouse), and ''Tokimeki Memorial 2 Substories: Dancing Summer Vacation'' was compatible with the [[VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution DDR]] Dancing Pad.

** [[spoiler: [[TwinSwitch Maho Shirayuki]]]] and [[spoiler: [[WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs Maeka Kudanshita]]]], both secret characters in ''Tokimeki Memorial 2'', are also some of the hardest characters to get the Endings of in the whole series, to the point of GuideDangIt level. [[HotForStudent Kas]][[CoolBigSis umi]] [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend As]][[UnluckyChildhoodFriend ou]] is also a NintendoHard character to win.

* TohokuRegionalAccent: Elisa D. Naruse. Possibly a subversion of the stereotype that all foreigners have a KansaiRegionalAccent (which was used by Patricia [=McGrath=] when she was in an UnstoppableRage, as well as her father and brother, in ''Tokimeki Memorial Pocket''). Also a ShoutOut to, of all things, ''MyFairLady''.

** Elisa ''Doolittle'' Naruse isn't quite an {{Expy}} of her namesake, but has to be a ShoutOut to ''MyFairLady'' - complete with wacky accent.

* JapaneseHonorifics: This series makes it an important game mechanic: as the girls come to like you, they will name you with more informal honorifics, and even going as far as calling you with [[HelloInsertNameHere your nickname]] for some of them. Obviously, it's one of the sure-fire ways to know how you fare in your relationships.
** ''Tokimemo 2'' and onwards also lets the player use it on the girls. Correct usage improves relationships, and vice versa. And also in ''Tokimemo 2'', [[spoiler: never ever address the school headmaster with the honorific ''-chan'', or else, Homura, the girl close to him, will hate you for it]]

** ShiraOkaSecondChances, a game that strives to be as complex as the ''Tokimeki Memorial'' series, can be considered an unofficial spiritual successor. (It follows in the footsteps of the independent game ''Summer Session'', which is less intricate, but which was commercially released in English in mid-2008.)

Added DiffLines:

** The iconic SailorFuku becomes one in Tokimeki Memorial 4, in that, in the years since the first game, the school has begun phasing it out, with only that final year's students being allowed to break the modern uniform code by wearing it.


Added DiffLines:

* TruthInTelevision: A video game version, in that the reason only a handful of characters, after the first game, use a SailorFuku is the very real fact that Japan was phasing it out. Taken to it's logical extreme in the fourth game, as you return to the school of the first game, and almost everyone is using a uniform based on modern uniform styles of Japan.
