* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: You can only have eight Sims (including your pets) in any household. There are however cheats to allow more, and they ''don't'' induce a GameBreakingBug, though they may increase the already onerous [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading load times]].

** The number of Sims you can invite to a party was initially limited to two to four sims even if you had decent computer specs. Later expansions increased the limit, and you could always use the "[=intProp maxNumOfVisitingSims=]" cheat to increase it manually.



* AttentionWhore: In ''University'', Drama professors will follow your sims back to the dorm, harass them for attention, and [[{{Yandere}} act heartbroken if anybody has a romantic interaction with anybody other than them]]. Mascots do it to a lesser degree; llama mascots mostly just show up to show everybody the school cheer, while cow mascots are there to cause trouble in your dorm. Then there's the odd [[NakedPeopleAreFunny streaker]]...

* YourCheatingHeart: [[YouBastard If you want]], you can make a sim cheat on their spouse/lover, but only keep it going as long as the other doesn't notice (like, don't make out with the one you cheat with while in the same room as your spouse). There's also the default family Pleasant in which the husband is cheating on his wife with the maid. A Sim with a Romantic Ambition will even ''want'' to cheat (actually, they want to have "several lovers at the same time", but it's still behind their respective backs, so it's pretty much the same thing.)

* BlindDate: In Nightlife, it's possible to ask a gypsy to hook your Sim up on a blind date, for a small fee of course. The more cash you offer, the more compatible the partner she selects, based on personality, interests, and turn-on/turn-off traits.

* WishingWell: The "Seasons" explansion pack introduces one as the reward given by the Gardening Club for a perfect garden. Sims can throw money into it to grant wishes for money, love or popularity. Beware, though, as using it too many times will cause some wishes to backfire...

* TruthInTelevision: You can get your cat or dog a job, and the three possible careers include positions like "rescue pet" and "contraband sniffer". While these are tasks usually associated with dogs, cats ''are'' sometimes used as search-and-rescue animals as well as drug/bomb sniffers.

** Similarly, pets can get jobs, and both cats and dogs have the exact same career paths. While some fall under TruthInTelevision, the second highest position in the service career is "seeing eye pet", something that cats definitely aren't used for in real like.

* GuideDangit: A somewhat unorthodox example: actually obtaining the Origin-only ''The Sims 2: Ultimate Collection'', which includes every expansion and stuff pack for the game, can be this. Unless you received it during the promotion mentioned above, the only way to add it to your Origin collection is through contacting EA customer support and providing them with proof that you own a physical copy of ''The Sims 2''.
