* BlindIdiotTranslation: The English version of Princess Maker 3 and 5 have very awkward grammar. In 5, "{{Otaku}}" is translated as "Mania" for instance.

The series was rather obscure outside Japan due to a lack of an English localization for over twenty years. One attempt was made to release a PC version of ''Princess Maker 2'', but in spite of this release being completed, it was never sold as the publisher went out of business. Despite this, ''Princess Maker 2'' remains the best known title outside Japan simply because this aborted retail release leaked onto the internet and was pirated for years. Finally in 2016, Korean publisher CFK Co. made a surprise release of ''Princess Maker 2 [[UpdatedReRelease|Refine]]'' on Steam in English, Japanese, and Korean, using a new English script. Soon after they released the first and third titles in 2017 and then jumped to the 5th and final title in 2018, taking the once-obscure franchise from zero releases to 4 in just two short years.

A retranslated and updated version of the second game (the most well-known one) was released on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} in late 2016, followed by an updated version of its predecessor in 2017 and English release of successor few months later, with the possibility of further installments following it in the future.

** The first game takes this to the extreme in which two of the women competing in the Martial Arts tournament apparently fight completely in the buff. Their stats reflect this rather poor choice of defense.



* GoldenEnding: Certain endings in the games are considered the best or flat-out [[WordOfGod stated]] to be the canon ending, and they are all extra difficult to obtain. Special mention goes to the fourth game, where Patricia learns of her heritage, convinces the kingdom to remove the Sage Stones and brings peace between the humans and demons, all while also managing to reunite with her long-lost mother.

* FlatEarthAtheist: The [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Princess%20Maker%202/Update%2021/img-5.png alchemist]] believes in magic and miracles, but believes that they can be explained through scientific principles. Which would be a reasonable attitude to have, but he's wrong: Heaven, Hell, morality and faith are tangible things in this world. Mechanically, he's one of the worse teachers, besides the General - he's cheap, but will lower faith a lot as soon as your daughter is promoted to Adept, which closes off some encounters.

* PunchClockVillain: When the father defeats Lucifon in the intro to the second game, the king of hell argues that he was simply following God's orders. The father has no counter to this point.
** God's orders to punish the decadence of the kingdom's inhabitants, including the king and his royal family, no less. In the words of Lucifon himself: "I killed only fools."

* ScienceIsWrong: In Princess Maker 2, rationalism is, at best, incomplete. Studying science ''does'' develop your Intelligence, but it reduces your Faith - and this is a world where gods rule over the stars and the Devil was just sent to punish the kingdom for its sins.
