** Thanks to VideoGameCaringPotential, the 18th year. The player gets attached to the daughter, and then they is sad, either because they're wistful that they'll have to leave her behind, or they're happy for how she's turned out, or sad for her...

** In Princess Maker 5, if you have a good bond with your daughter she will talk about her parent at school and give you flowers on Mother's Day/Father's Day.

* SequelDisplacement: If it wasn't for the obvious "2" in the title of the second game, most people wouldn't know the original ''Princess Maker'' even ''exists. Princess Maker 2'' is, in fact, the one that almost ''everyone'' thinks of when they think of the series (hence the reason it's the page pic for the main page), although this is admittedly largely because it was the only one to ever get an English language release until ''Princess Maker Refine 1'' came out in 2017 (and the Refine version of Princess Maker 2 was still released in English first).

** On the other hand, if ther player allows the daughter to succumb to illness and die, they will get chewed out by her patron deity, and if the player has any kind of soul, they'll feel as though they'll deserved it.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments: A meta-example: following a sordid history of TroubledProduction, ''Princess Maker 2'' finally received an official English release in September of 2016. Not only was the release of the updated ''Refine'' version, but the game was released a week ahead of its original October date due to the anticipation buzzing around its finally coming overseas! Afterwards, the original ''Princess Maker'' and ''Princess Maker 3'' would go on to be released, giving fans a chance to play through a good chunk of the series.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Koreans Love Princess Maker]]: Has a strong Korean fanbase. In fact, the newest game in the series, Princess Maker for Kakao, was Korean-made and didn't come to Japan until three years later!

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: The original [=SoftEgg=] translation of ''2'' is often seen as [[ILikedItBetterWhenItSucked a lot more amusing]] than ''Refine'', with gems like Wendy's obsession with "Magician Girls!" that are less funny in the more faithful retranslation.

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: The [[https://youtu.be/X176FPyxBF0 Bondage Queen ending]] comes off as weirdly hilarious at times. Specially the last line...
-->'''Daughter''': [using the "surprised" sprite] "I love a good slave, do you?"

* ValuesDissonance:
** Invoked in universe. Most of the games take place in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting, and as such, the daughter can marry AND have a career. In Princess Maker 5, which happens in modern Japan, [[CareerVersusMan the daughter can marry OR have a career.]] Not both.
** Even in the games where the daughter can have a career, it's often remarked on how she must have a husband and kids as well. i.e., in ''2'' the Gods are quite displeased if the girl either doesn't marry or doesn't have strong maternal instincts.
** In the second game, the General's line about how girls should not just be refined but also think of what they can do to please men may not be ill-intentioned from him, but it's pretty sexist in practice.
