Each game has three eligible marriage candidates, except for ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife SE]]'', which has 4. A marriage candidate must be chosen by the end of year one, or the [[NonStandardGameOver game will end]], though the marriage candidate with the highest affection will propose to you at the end of the year if you didn't get around to doing it. Each season is 10 days long, and most crops can only be harvested in one season.

* BlondeBrunetteRedHead: Muffy, Celia, and Nami respectively ** The DistaffCounterpart has this too, though Gustafa is a darker shade of red. * BlindIdiotTranslation: There are several blatant typos and mistakes, plus a few glitches in the game. And the transition of Lumina as a love interest in the PlayStation version was a tad sloppy; some scenes refer to her as Muffy. There are fewer typos in the [[DistaffCounterpart girl version]], though. ** Your son occasionally calls your husband his mother. * BreakTheCutie: If you break Celia's heart, then she, Vesta, and ''especially'' Marlin will ''never forgive you.'' ** You make this happen to Lumina if you play as the boy character, due to her PrecociousCrush on you. She gets over it though. Muffy has this happen to her a few times, both due to you and not.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Darker, at least. The DS installments based on this game are Lighter And Edgier, oddly enough. * DecadeDissonance: At first glance the games, especially the male one, seems to take place in the early twentieth century. However you have characters like Rock and Griffin who embody TheSixties, a (rather retro looking) TV, and relatively modern fashions on certain characters. If you watch TV you'll notice references to ''cellphones''. Tim implies airplanes aren't even a thing in the protagonists country. It's worth noting that Mineral Town looks more modern and it's literally just a few miles away.

* DyingTown: Forget-Me-Not Valley can't honestly even be called a town. With only a handful of families living there with all of them save the farmers commuting out for work, no form of mayor or leadership whatsoever, and the closest thing to a store they have is a single wandering merchant who passes through twice a month. By the end of the game, the town has essentially turned into a senior citizens community with only three or four youth who may just skip out to the city when they grow up.

* EarnYourBadEnding: It's possible to get a NonStandardGameOver by neglecting your farm sales in the second year, but actually getting this ending is difficult if you aren't trying. You basically have to deliberately run your farm into the ground and then repeatedly give very rude responses to your wife when she questions you about it. * EducationMama: Celia really wants to see her son grow up to be a scientist.

* LikeBrotherAndSister: In one event with Lumina in the PlayStation version, she says she doesn't wish she had siblings, because she already has you as an older brother figure. Considering you're [[{{Squick}} trying to seduce her...]] ** It's implied she has mistaken her romantic feelings for a sibling affection or that her feelings changed over time. In the original game she runs away crying during the wedding scene. * LimitedWardrobe: In the original AWL, everyone wears the same clothes all their lives, save for a hand full of people who get palette swaps in their older years. In ANWL, your character can purchase more outfits for themselves. And in SE, everyone changes the color of their outfits based on the seasons. * LivingProp: A lot of the citizens in town sort of just exist. There's no events or items you get from talking to them, and so you end up sort of just ignoring them completely.

Her frequent visits to the bar, long walks through town, and arguments with her teenage son are signs she may not exactly have been cut out for this. ** Thank God her toddler son is smart enough to go to bed on his own. * MayDecemberRomance: Muffy is a bit older than your character, being in her thirties. Your son might grow up to have a crush on Kate, who was around six years or so older, or Lumina, who is so much older that in some versions ''you'' could marry her. ** Lumina is at least 14 years, probably 16 to 18 years, older than your son. * {{Meganekko}}: Flora and Chris * MoodWhiplash: When you ask Nami to marry you, she becomes surprised by this and takes the Blue Feather.

** In the last chapter you get a cute scene between you and your significant other.. Then you die. * MythologyGag: Nina's hairstyle, name, and fascination with flowers all seem to be this to Nina of the first game. Considering ''HarvestMoon64'' featured a senior Ellen [[spoiler:who shared a similar fate]], she could be an aged version of Nina. ** Instead of the usual Hearts appearing beside the name the girls have hearts in their hidden diaries. The original ''Harvest Moon'' was the same way, with each girl having a diary beside their bed with their heart levels in it. Celia is also a bit of an {{Expy}} of Nina, with a smudge of Ellen mized in, and Muffy is one of Eve.

The Japanese site for the original game states she's fourteen but all games afterwards use the same model. Somewhat more justified in Japan where she's sixteen, not eighteen.

* PlatonicLifePartners: Everyone in town apparently gossips about how Flora and Carter have been sharing a tent together for years. But if you speak to them, it's clear that a relationship with each other has never even ''occurred'' to them. However, their descendants in ''DS'' and ''Cute'' are paired together.

She keeps the latter style in every other game she appears in. ** Her hair style has changed frequently. It was at most shaggiest in ''Magical Melody'' but was combed down a bit for the Wii Ware title. * UpdatedRerelease: Another Wonderful Life may just be a distaff counterpart, but it also added a lot of other new content to the game. Minigames to train your dog, the ability to change your outfit, a mirror by your bed, added difficulty in getting fodder, and making the special tools have different effects while farming. Some of these additions were included in the PS2 special edition, but not all of them.
