* In every Harem the main lead is usually a guy. Why not change it up and make the main lead a female or, if you really want to go outside the box, transgender?
** Who says a harem series has to be a romantic one? The group in question could develop into TrueCompanions with little to no hint of romantic desires.

* In near every harem, the members of said harem are of the opposite gender of the lead (and if there's one of the same gender, it's often played as a joke). But what if the lead is bisexual, demisexual or pansexual, and the Harem is composed from a variety of genders, all of them presented with equal chances?

Simply put, HaremHero is the main lead in the entire story, oftentimes refer specifically to a male lead in a harem story with action elements (sometimes complete with BattleHarem and/or MagicalGirlfriend).

Simply put, how much TheHero is involved and how effective he is in fights. However, MadeOfIron is a universal trope often carried by TheHero. Whether he's a {{Muggle}}, ActionSurvivor or BadassAbnormal, the hero must be able to soak a lot of damage (whether [[NotAGame serious]] or [[AmusingInjuries comedic]]).

CharacterizationTropes come as priority, you can have TheEveryman, oftentimes act as AudienceSurrogate. Even then, you must avoid FlatCharacter at all cost. Simply put, anything that could flesh your character.

Even if your character started out as uninteresting/unlikeable, CharacterDevelopment is required. For example, a DirtyCoward becomes a CowardlyLion or [[TheSoCalledCoward someone who's supposed to be coward but charges ahead]].

There should be a reason why the girls are interested in our hero, the reason might be flimsy, but at the very least, [[WillingSuspensionofDisbelief it must be acceptable to the audience]].

NiceGuy attracting Harem due to kindness is overdone, but note that if applied correctly, TropesAreNotBad.

Some show attempt to subvert this by having HotBlooded JerkWithAHeartOfGold as base characteristic, the kindness element is downplayed but certainly still exist.

In stories specifically about BattleHarem, the Hero might be required by the {{Action Girl}}s for certain roles (MissionControl, MacGuffin, KidWithTheLeash etc). This gave him another role outside the obvious harem plot.

* '''Type 2:''' Hero can fight against threats by himself, holding his own against enemies if required. In this setting, heroines often function as a ''FauxActionGirl'', or as ''TrueCompanions'' in battle. In reality, there are sub-categories of type 2.
