** In the main version of ''The Sims 2'', this is pretty much the life's goal of any Sim with the Family aspiration. They'll keep rolling wishes/wants to have more and more children, with no apparent cap (whereas Sims without this aspiration usually start to actively fear having more children after three or four). Most of their lifetime 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 [[IWantGrandchildren want grandchildren]]...

Added DiffLines:

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Many of the pre-made female students at Sim State University have crushes on Castor Nova, though he doesn't seem to be aware of this, and he doesn't have romantic feelings for any of them. It's up to the player to decide which direction his love life will go.

* HalfHumanHybrid: Alien Sims in ''The Sims 2'', as they are the half-human offspring of an alien pollination technician and the male sim who was abducted. Technically any children that those alien sims go on to have as well.

** Sims are hypnotised, and then visibly smile while being bitten by a vampire. The "Neck Bite" interaction also causes a major relationship boost. Or a relationship drop [[EpicFail when it fails.]] Vampire sims left on free will are likely to attempt biting other non-vampire sims. Let's just say they'll attempt to bite sims even when they barely know them, ergo it will almost always fail, because you usually need to be at friend level or higher for this interaction to suceed. Seems stupid, but it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] considering vampires are, well, thirsty for blood, and they might get restless so they'll chance a bite even when it's unlikely to work.
** [[GameBreakingBug Just keep all vampires away from Mrs. Crumplebottom;]] if she gets bitten and turns into a vampire, ''your entire game could become corrupted'' over time, eventually requiring a full re-installation. There are fixes found online which prevent NPC vampires from biting anyone, which'll avoid this occurence. However it won't stop one of your own sims, on free will, attempting to bite anyone, including when they're on a public lot.

* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: A scheduling conflict can let your Sim [[TalkingToThemself meet themself]] and gain a memory from it, possibly even a relationship. However, [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing if you do this]], [[GameBreakingBug very bad things will happen to your game]], and you'll have to uninstall and start all over. (Just delete the "new" version of yourself that comes up and everything will be okay.)

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: ''The Sims 2'' allows the player to have aliens, zombies, vampires, werewolves, plant/human hybrids, and combine them as he/she deems [[RuleOfCool cool]]. Vampire/werewolf/zombie ''robots'' are even possible. (Click [[http://thesims2.filefront.com/potd/70889 here]] and [[http://forums.worldsims.org/gallery/showimage.php?i=1207&c=2 here]] to see.)

** And rather than call a ghostbuster or someone of that nature, simply moving the gravestone can get rid of a Sim Ghost.

* VocalEvolution: Simlish evolved heavily between the original game and this game. There are more lines meaning the Simlish is ''much'' less repetitive than before and it became more complex. The general sound of it also changed as well.

* ChildByRape: male sims can be forcibly impregnated by aliens and have alien babies.

* ChildByRape: By default, male sims can be forcibly impregnated by aliens and have alien babies.



* ClassicCheatCode:
** Writing "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" (the last word replaced with "false" to inactivate the code), in the neighbour hood, then enter the desired family and you now can mess around with it how much you want. You hold in "shift" and click on a sim to suddenly get very out-of-place options and go from there. You can spawn all from wishing wells to tombstones, turn them into vampires, mess with the sims' genders or names as well as make a girl pregnant with ''anyone'', even her [[BrotherSisterIncest brother]]. This is not recommended though if you have a crash-tastic computer as these cheats can make it hang. Also, no matter what language you play in, the options will always be in English.
** "motherlode" allows the family you play as to recieve §50000. Writing "kaching" will give you §1000. Writing "familyFunds <family/household name> <amount>" allows you the certain amount you want.
** "maxmotives" fills up all the need bars on every sim in the household.
** "boolprop controlpetson" allows you to control your pets, and "boolprop petactioncancelon" allows you to cancel their actions.
** If a woman just got pregnant (you hear the lullaby), write in "forcetwins" and you will have twins when she later gives birth.

* 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.
