Added DiffLines:

* UselessUsefulSpell: ''All of it'' in 1 (except Heal and the two {{Warp Whistle}}s), due to the unpolished RP system. Your max RP never goes up, and magic costs never go down. So why bother? Heal is still useful because the HP drain from acting without RP is a 1:1 ratio, while the spell recovers more HP than it costs in RP, and Teleport/Escape are useful because they're free.

* CastFromHitPoints
** Not applicable in RF 3, as trying to do anything without RP leads to you fainting in short order.
*** Not ''as'' applicable, but if you've got your HP high enough and your RP consumption for a particular task low enough you can do a little.

*** Not ''as'' applicable, but if you've got
CastFromHitPoints: If you're out of RP, actions will drain your HP high enough instead. In the first game, the system for this was really bad, resulting in "RP management" consisting entirely of "carry around the Heal spell and eat a snack sometimes". The second game fixed the two most obvious problems (Magic costs decrease with practice like everything else, and your max RP consumption for a particular task low enough you can do a little.increases with levels), but the system was still pretty ignorable. The third game made the HP drain much greater and added greater RP gain to more food, finally encouraging players to act the way the game wanted them to.

* InconsistentDub: Between ''Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon'' and ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier'' due to the former being localized by Natsume and the latter by XSEEDGames. The former game's Tori became known as Tart in the latter game, and the Sechs Empire was referenced as the Zzyzx Empire.
** Although to be fair on the country name change, when you say both terms correctly, Sechs does sound like a shortened version of Zzyzx. Some fans speculate the name reading was changed so that people stopped pronouncing it "Sex Empire". (The words seem to be German-based names for the games, with Sechs being said more like "zeks" (if you spell in English phonetically), and Zzyzx is roughly "zaizeks". So it could be said that the Sechs is simply a shortened version of the empire's name.)
** Referenced in the setting description of ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'''s manual; apparently the change to Zzyzx was temporary, and [[LampshadeHanging "may have been a practical joke, or perhaps the result of temporary delirium due to illness"]].

** It's not that surprising since this occurs in most visual novels and other dating sim games with a designated "main heroine." This is one aspect that is different from the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games, probably due to the fact that the RuneFactory series actually have a plot instead of just being a life simulation.

** Lara is also voiced by Karen Strassman in the same game.
** Let's just say ''Rune Factory Frontier'' is just littered with this.

* TalkToEveryone: A requirement, since you have to speak to ''everyone'' to get all the basic tools, and in RuneFactory3 your first request is literally to introduce yourself to everyone in town and then ship one item.

** Frontier allows you to do this with a simple menu command from the get-go.
*** As a bonus, it also works while sealed. This means that you can fight however much you want without worry that you can always escape just in time.

** In RuneFactory3, the spell sends you to different places depending on where you are; for example if you're on your doorstep and cast it, it'll send you right next to your bed, whereas if you cast it while in your home it sends you to your doorstep.
** And in RuneFactory4, besides being an usable spell it can be used at any time with a tap on the touch screen.
