She's a NintendoHard character because of this, and switches from the first trope to the second if you manage to heal the wounds of her heart and get her to love you]].

''Tokimeki Memorial'' (ときめきメモリアル Tokimeki Memoriaru, lit. "Heartbeat Memorial") is a popular and [[VideoGameLongRunners long-running]] [[DatingSim dating simulation]] series by {{Konami}}, with its first game released in 1994 on PCEngine. That game was [[SleeperHit a low-profile title which became a hit]], thanks to [[ViralMarketing massive favourable word of mouth]], and the game appealing not only to the intended young male demography but [[PeripheryDemographic also the female one]], thanks to the game's romantic and funny atmosphere.

* 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.

In each game, you're playing as a freshman in a Japanese HighSchool, and you'll spend your three years of school time, working on your academic and sports stats, meeting other students of the other gender as yours, and wooing them, in the hope of getting the confession of love of one of them at the place of legend of your High School on Graduation Day. This place, varying depending on the game, is said to grant eternal happiness to the new couples confessing their feeling to each other on that specific day.

* {{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''...
