** In the main versions of ''The Sims 2'' and ''The Sims 3'', this is pretty much the life's goal of any Sim with the Family aspiration or the Family-Oriented trait. They'll keep rolling wishes/wants to have more and more children, with no apparent cap (whereas Sims without these traits usually start to actively fear having more children after three or four). Most of their lifetime wishes/wants will require them to get HappilyMarried before having a minimum of three children (sometimes as many as ten!) and raising them up to adulthood. Then they'll start to want grandchildren...

* BlindDate: In Nightlife, it's possible to ask a gypsy to hooky your Sim up on a blind date.

* BrotherSisterIncest: While not technically in the game, it has been noted the Curious Brothers only recognize Jenny Smith as their sister, and do not recognize their half-sisters, Chloe and Lola, as siblings. This means, any of them could marry if they wished.



* DistaffCounterpart: Blossom Moonbeam to Jared Starchild and Zoey Rosenfeld to Cyd Roseland are the two most obvious examples. The Frio brothers also function more or less as spear counterparts to the Caliente sisters, despite the names suggesting that they're complete opposites.

** Though they'll usually have the common sense not to [[TooDumbToLive go outside]], at which point they're very likely to perish. Oh no, not so much because sunlight instantly kills them; it doesn't, it only rapidly decreases a vampire sim's needs. The death will be caused by the sim's ''own ineptitude'' and refusal to obey the player's orders when their needs get too low. They'll just end up standing there, complaining about low bladder/hunger/energy ''while outside''. Instead of waving at the player nonstop they should just run inside, or at least do so when the player tells them. But they're unlikely to listen. Death by stupidity will soon follow. Considering the [[SarcasmMode brilliant]] AI of most vampire sims, being a vampire in this game is [[BlessedWithSuck more of a curse than a blessing]], especially for the player who has to deal with this crap.

* BizarreAlienBiology: Averted with HalfHumanHybrid aliens; they reproduce with humans or other creatures without any issues. It should be mentioned though that full-blooded aliens only kidnap [[MrSeahorse males]] to impregnate (females can get abducted, they just don't get pregnant), so this particular oddity is played straight.

* DontFearTheReaper: He's a pretty amicable guy, offering discounts on children's resurrections, occasionally bringing back dead Sims as zombies if their loved ones lose the wager with him, and if your aspiration meter was high, showing that the afterlife is really more of an endless vacation to Hawaii. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGwTaYuRNzc&feature=related Literally]]. He's as much of a human as any other Sim; he can use your ''toilet'', and [[UrbanLegendOfZelda allegedly]] have sex with and impregnate a female Sim. Shenanigans reveal that Nervous Subject's mother only remembers WooHooing one Sim - the Grim Reaper himself. So there is, in theory, a way to do that, it probably just involves cheating.[[note]]Doing so will [[GameBreakingBug corrupt the entire game.]][[/note]]

** Turning universal NPCs (NPCs that appear in all neighborhoods), such as the Grim Reaper and Ms Crumplebottom, into supernatural creatures or adding them to a household will corrupt the entire game, not just the neighborhood, requiring a full reinstallation of the game to recover from the game corruption. Though most of these cases are entirely avoidable unless you deliberately mess around with cheats/hacks or tamper with files. Save for one; the most dangerous scenario, which could happen to any player even if they never use cheats, is when you visit a downtown public lot where Mrs Crumplebottom and a vampire NPC may spawn. Mrs Crumplebottom ''can'' be bitten and transformed into a vampire by the Vampire NPC. If this happens your entire game is probably toast. Luckily there's an easy fan-made fix found online which prevents NPC vampires from biting sims while on a community lot, eliminating the chances of this game-killing freak occurence from happening. Alternatively there's other fan-made mods which prevent Mrs Crumplebottom from spawning, ever (if you can bear with the [[SarcasmMode lovely old lady]] no longer visitinging your public lots).

* BilingualBonus: Probably not intentional but the vampires say "bluh" which sounds like "blø", which means "Bleed" in Norwegian, which does fit something a vampire would want to say.
