It typically features a HighSchool–aged male lead with at lead two (usually at least three and often a lot more) available girls who may be actively interested in him but at the very least are bound by circumstances to be close to him. [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender Inverted]], [[QueerAsTropes LGBTQ]], and IfItsYouItsOkay examples exist, as do age-adjusted renditions for younger audiences. Typically each harem member has a markedly contrasting personality, often personifying a single classic characterization archetype.

It normally takes place in a HighSchool setting, with one male lead and at least three (often a lot more) girls who are romantically interested in him, or at the very least are bound by circumstances to live with him. [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender Inverted Examples]] also exist, as do age-adjusted renditions for younger audiences. Usually, each harem member personifies a single classic characterization archetype.

The protagonist either takes it as an UnwantedHarem, reacts as a HaremSeeker, or is ObliviousToLove.

Works where a Harem Genre set-up is put in front of other relationship dynamics, and the plot is written with the intention to keep the "race" for the male protagonist's heart as tied as possible, are known as the BalancedHarem subgenre.

In recent shows, the Harem genre has become somewhat divided into two "routes". The first, the legitimate "Harem Route", has the girls choose to share the lead character, equally or otherwise, rather than risk losing him and their friends completely. The other, more realistic route is called "Shuraba", sometimes translated as "Bloodbath"; here, ThereCanBeOnlyOne, and all contenders are willing to destroy their enemy to achieve their own happiness.

In other cases, when a work uses this genre together with a more traditional RomanticComedy OfficialCouple relationship, that is called the SupportingHarem subgenre.

Many of these works are also shared with the {{Ecchi}} genre, as it is harder to find a {{Harem}} story that isn't filled with gratuitous {{Fanservice}} than one that is.

The protagonist either takes may take it as an UnwantedHarem, reacts 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 ObliviousToLove.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.

Not surprisingly, Harems frequently go hand-in-hand with the {{Ecchi}} genre, as it is harder to find a {{Harem}} story that isn't filled with genre and gratuitous {{Fanservice}} than one that is.
{{Fanservice}}. That said, outright {{Hentai}} harems are rarely seen and often poorly exemplify a genre where WantingIsBetterThanHaving and UnresolvedSexualTension is a primary source of dramatic interest.
