The protagonist may take it as an UnwantedHarem, react as a HaremSeeker, or be ObliviousToLove; but he almost ''never'' [[WillTheyOrWontThey actually enters a consummated romantic relationship]] with any of them, except perhaps [[TheyDo as the grand finale]]. Particularly pure examples of the set-up, where the plot is designed to keep the "race" for the male protagonist's heart in a perpetual dead heat, are known as the BalancedHarem subgenre. Other possible dynamics include the "Harem Route", where the girls choose to share the lead character amicably rather than risk losing him and their friends completely, or the "Shuraba" ("Bloodbath") route, where ThereCanBeOnlyOne and the contenders ruthlessly sabotage each other to secure mastery. There is also the hybrid option where the harem is "led" by a female lead in a conventional OfficialCouple relationship with the MC and "backed" by a SupportingHarem.

own. Also note that many works have a standard set of heroines and tropes of this genre as SupportingHarem, however such titles do not belong to the harem genre because they only pretend to be harem for fan service and attracting the audience.
